How director Shaun O’ Connor finds actors for his projects

by | May 21, 2020 | Acting Related Podcast

Part two of my chat with director Shaun O’ Connor, in part one we chatted about creativity during lock down, his first feature (shot for about €300!) and how taking an acting class changed his approach to directing.

In this episode we chat about his latest award winning short “A White Horse”, the importance of not filtering your enthusiasm when networking, and how he finds actors for his projects.

Shaun was recently nominated for a discovery award at the Dublin International Film Festival and he has directed numerous shorts, a feature, and recently directed a stage play.
