Scenes I've Seen...: A Casting Director's Original Scenes and Interpretive Notes
"It was a wonderful scene -- it holds great truth and depth." -- Joe Allen Price Scenes I've Seen is a casting director's book of original dramatic and comedic scenes for actors and actresses ranging in age from 20 to 65. What makes the book unique is that it offers both wonderful, contemporary scenes, as well as in-depth comments from the author, providing insight to the characters and advice from a professional casting director on performing the scenes. The additional information that accompanies each scene offers actors a better understanding of the role, thereby enhancing the choices they use in their performance. Dorian Dunas attended USC film school and started in the film business reading scripts for two years for director Richard Donner. She got into development and worked for actor Peter Strauss' film company, Beowolf, for a year, then moved into casting. Her first job as a casting assistant was Pretty in Pink. In casting, Ms. Dunas has worked on eleven features, five television series, six pilots, and two plays. Several years ago, she worked with a partner writing scripts, and their first comedy script was optioned by Paramount Pictures.
