"Carl put so much time and thought in to my individual career, giving me really insightful, honest advice and feedback. I couldn't recommend it highly enough."

Carl Proctor is not only a busy Casting Director and a member of The Casting Directors Guild, he is also one of London's most in demand headshot photographers. Carl trained as an actor at RADA and worked successfully for many years. He also runs a production company with Imogen Stubbs and Serena Gordon. All this combines to give Carl a unique slant on our industry and well placed to share his wealth of experience and offer advice and guidance on a one-to-one level.

"Carl Proctor's advice is sincere and measured. If anyone is considering doing 1-2-1 career advice with Carl, I cannot recommend it highly enough. When I left the session, I was beaming with motivation and optimism. His knowledge and professionalism are outstanding."

"My half an hour with Carl Proctor was the best 30 quid I've ever spent. What a lovely, insightful chap. I will definitely be booking more workshops if I can expect that calibre every time."

Carl is currently working on two films and a pilot for a sit-com. Commercials and one off TV projects are ongoing.

These half hour sessions offer a relaxed and supportive environment in which to get some honest answers. Topics include, but are not limited to, CVs and headshots, agents, showreels, voicereels, letter writing and marketing strategy as a whole. But these sessions are totally actor led so Carl will only focus on the areas you want to discuss.

Actors leave with a renewed determination, questions answered, with some misconceptions corrected, fears confirmed or quashed, with a clear idea of what changes might make a difference and a plan of action to take them forward. Where appropriate Carl is able to advise on which agents he thinks might be good for you at your stage of your career.

Carl recently cast 80 British actors in a ten part dramatisation THE BIBLE which was a huge success on American TV and has already became the biggest selling TV series on DVD in the last 5 years and the biggest miniseries of all time on Blu-ray, Digital HD and DVD in its first week of release. It will be shown on Channel 5 this autumn.
