Casting director Sig De Miguel has cast dozens of movies. Although he now specializes in casting independent films, De Miguel cautions, “Actors should not think in terms of studio films versus independent films versus episodic television versus theater versus commercials. They should aspire to be working actors and work in all mediums available to them. The reality is unless a project is doing a search for an unknown, most actors starting out are going to be considered for small roles and day players.” Here is De Miguel’s advice regarding auditions, submissions, and acting résumés.
