Actors Bill of Rights - November 2002

Gary Chason, who moved to Austin from Houston, Texas in the spring of 2002, is a Director, Casting Director, Acting coach, Screenwriter and Author with a lot of experience as a Casting Director for major Hollywood movies out in LA. During the seventies and eighties he split time between casting major motion pictures (THE LAST PICTURE SHOW, PAPER MOON, PRETTY BABY, THE GETAWAY, PARIS, TEXAS, etc.) and directing experimental theater in Houston. The first Casting Director in the State of Texas, he was one of the earliest innovators in the use of videotape to teach acting techniques. He is also a filmmaker. His feature-length film CHARLIE'S EAR (35mm, SAG) won numerous festival awards (including Best Director, Best Actor and Best Picture in Madrid) and played at the Dobie Theater in '95. He has two shorts, GOD THINKS YOU'RE A LOSER (35mm) and MORE THAN TWO DOLLARS (24 frame HD), in post-production as of this writing and his first book, NOTES ON ACTING FOR THE CAMERA, will be published later this year.
