"I am a casting director from Orlando that casts principals and extras for commercials, industrials, infomercials and print. My company attended the John Casablancas event in South Florida at the Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood. There were about 400 actors and models that had the chance to showcase their talent. There were lots of great kids and adults with a wide variety of ethnicities. Of the 400 talent in the showcase, we had interest in about 75 individuals. One of the main parts of my job is to find new talent to present to clients. This event was a great opportunity to see a lot of great talent within one day. The event was a lot of fun and very well organized. The John Casablancas scouts were very helpful, energetic, pleasant and accommodating to all of the industry professionals in attendance." -Thanks for the great event!
