The new N.W.A biopic film, Straight Outta Compton, was this past weekend’s top grossing movie. Congratulations to Cindy Tolan, the casting director on the film, and to the entire casting team.
Cast It was used throughout the casting process, including the national actor search for all of the lead roles in the film. With an online search portal powered by Cast It that allowed anyone to upload their headshot and self-taped audition for the casting team to review, as well as remote location casting teams in Boston, Chicago, Texas and the UK, Cast It served as the primary hub for the various casting teams to upload and organize cast lists, actor choices, and of course audition videos. Once posted, the filmmakers and studio execs could view the material, provide feedback, and ultimately make their approvals.
