At various times it has been brought up by various anonymous writers on my blog, that there may be some dodgy ethics involved with a casting director teaching workshops. The suspicion seems to be that actors might be paying to get cast. I have always assured actors that I am wearing a slightly different hat while teaching and that the workshops are purely educational.
Since there are many casting directors who teach workshops, CSA (Casting Society of America) of which I am a member, has an official policy for casting workshops. Please click here.
So from now on I will ask all participants of my classes to read and agree to these guidelines before taking my classes so that everything is %100 clear.
