“‘Casting’ is about the dos and don’ts of how talent should ‘act’ when it comes to a film or TV casting.
Now the next step is editing, and the DP will be doing that as well.” – UFTA President Al Quinn

“Our film is a short, and we only needed to shoot over one weekend. The first day of shooting was held at Geri Muck’s agency, Protocol Models on the Gulf.
Geri was so nice to allow us to shoot at her office She is a talent agent and ended up playing one in the film as well. She was great!” – UFTA Treasurer Carrie Belluso
