Masterclass With Casting Director Eva Nilsen
About Eva Nilsen:
Eva Nilsen was born in Marbella to a Norwegian mother and a Spanish father. Her connection to the world of casting, photography, production, and direction is in her blood. Her mother, Marianne Nilsen, a Norwegian settled in Marbella, found herself in the right place at the perfect time in 1989 and became a pioneer with the creation of one of the first casting companies on the Costa del Sol, Marbella Casting.
In this way, Eva Nilsen grew up among guitars and cameras, naturally acquiring a great ability to bridge both worlds. As a casting director, assistant film director, video clips and advertising director, she is preparing for her debut in directing a feature film for the next year.
Her artistic vision stands out for her ability to recognize talent and place it in the right frame. These virtues have grown and developed throughout her professional life. Given her family background, she started in front of the camera as an actress and model, and, alongside her mother, managed the casting company from the age of 15. Her success led her to be chosen as the casting director for Madonna with Emilio Muñoz and for Brian Adams with Paco de Lucía, among others. She has collaborated on numerous advertising and film/TV series projects.
She has cast several Marbella Film School students in comercials, TV shows & feature films, Including Netflix.
In her course, we will learn to develop an improvised monologue, record it, and shoot a scene. She will provide us with the best tips for creating a self-tape, and we will leave with essential headshots to present ourselves at castings.
