November 7, 2009 Cast It Comments Off on Christmas Carol Opens

scrooge_smlDisney’s A Christmas Carol opens this weekend. Congratulations to Scot Boland, Victoria Burrows and Nina Gold, the casting directors on this project. The casting process lasted from April to October of 2007, with the producers and the director logging into Cast It to review actor bios, reels and voice-over auditions.

With casting directors using video editing tools like iMovie, voice-over audio files can be combined with production art to produce a simulated audition matching the actor’s voice with the character. This process, along with viewing these auditions via Cast It, has dramatically changed the way animated movies are cast.
