The three questions distributors will ask you about your movie are, “Who’s in it?” “Who’s in it?” and “Who’s in it?”  Actors, like stocks, have a value that impact the salability of your movie – the more well-known the actor, the better your sales.
In this module you will learn how to choose the right actors for your movie, work with distributors in the development process, determine the value of your creative talent, how to attract top-tier talent, and ultimately make your movie attractive to distributors and audiences.
Use star power to shine the spotlight on your movie with the right casting.

It was a very well thought out video and I love the attention to detail and the fact that the subject matter focused on the
aesthetic and storytelling aspects of editing.
