|The Chief Executive/Executive Producer, Executive in Charge of Production and Producer have the responsibility of auditioning and casting the core cast members during the pre-production period several weeks before actual production starts. Negotiations with the actors, usually through their agents, are held. and timetables are then planned by the Cast Coordinator.There are two teams of Assistant Directors. While one team is working on set, the other team is planning the next block of filming which includes scheduling cast and extras. Casting for Atlantis High was especially unique in the fact that every character was not ‘normal’ as we know life to realistically be. The story was set in a world of Bronzed Hunks and Beach Babes wandering around in fluorescent/bright shirts and bikinis, so a specific image was required when selecting cast and extras.|
The Cast Coordinator arranges the life of the core cast members whilst they are in production. This includes flights, meetings, accommodation, liaison with the actors’ agents, handling any inquiries regarding cast, arranges cast for press meetings, internet obligations and ultimately anything that a cast member is involved in for the series.
