Wilmington casting director to speak at CCU

Wilmington, N.C. casting director Tracy Kilpatrick will be on the campus of Coastal Carolina University for a two-day workshop on the film industry on Friday, March 26 and Saturday, March 27. The lectures, which are free and open to the public, will be held in the Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts.

Topics will include auditioning on camera, the nature of a casting director and discussion of upcoming film projects in the southeast.

The Friday workshop from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. will be in the Black Box Theatre, with a reception following in the Edwards Courtyard. The Saturday workshop from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. will be held in Room 123.

Kilpatrick is a member of the Casting Society of America (CSA) and has served as regional casting director for films such as "Forrest Gump," "Leatherheads," "No Country For Old Men," "The Forgiven," "The Strangers" (filmed in Florence, S.C.) and the upcoming "Secretariat."

She also worked for the Denzel Washington films' "Déjà Vu" and "The Great Debaters." She was casting director for the television project "John Adams," for which she won an Emmy award for casting in 2009.

Students who are interested in working in the film and television industry in the southeastern U.S., particularly in the Wilmington, N.C. area, are encouraged to attend these lectures.
