November 2016 Meeting
Saturday, November 19, 2016 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Place: Sewickley Public Library
Speaker: Erin Lisotto
Erin Lisotto has worked on many television and film projects filmed in Pittsburgh as an extra. Erin will give us a behind the scenes description of working on major motion pictures and television mini series, how she managed to become a regular call-back extra, the daily process of filming, and her interaction with some of Hollywood’s well known actors, actresses, and directors. She has some fantastically hysterical behind the scenes stories. Just a few of the movies and television series she has worked on include The Kill Point (a Spike TV mini series), Zack and Miri Make a Porno, pilot episode of Justified, Adventureland, Sorority Row, Lightweight (a short film), and more!
This is great research material for terminology, how some actors/actresses get started in the industry (Ben and Casey Affleck worked as extras on movie sets.), difference between union and non-union actors, how to get SAG cards, how to get into an agency, and so much more!
