Play • 1 hr 38 min

On this episode I'm joined by Casting Director Manuel Puro. He has worked with some of the UK's legendary casting directors as well as spending time at leading talent agency ICM and as Head of Development at Guy Ritchie's production company Ska Films, before coming back to the casting world. Manuel is also the brains behind The Acting Habit, an online self-tape workshop developed to encourage actors to embrace the art of self-taping by providing them with affordable guidance from the very first steps, up to interacting with leading casting professionals from around the world.

On the show we talk about:

  • Manuel's time at LSE and his passion for cinema.
  • How Kit Kat's helped land him his first job in the casting world.
  • Getting head hunted by ICM and working at one of the leading talent agencies in the world.
  • Moving into the production side of things at Ska Films.
  • What drove him to come back to casting and set up his own company.
  • Some advice for self-taping
  • How The Acting Habit came to be.
  • The possible future for independent film and the role of the streaming services.
