Finding NIna

Maya Karin auditioning for Nina. More Casting videos can be found at 

Casting is 65% of directing.

Finding the right person to do the right job, is critical for any type of work.

As far as filmmaking is concern, it could make or break a film.

Finding the right Nina, proves to be a challenging task, a very challenging task.

This girl got the look, but hasn't the soul.

That girl can act but not european enough.

This girl has the look, but cannot really act.

This Nina, is not just vital to the story telling, but vital for the bottom line as well.
