Silvia Menendez-Cahue is a Casting Director for Casting & Co. She has approximately 30 years of professional experience. During her week she looks at projects, ensures all things are prepped and calls people. It is a closed casting so she needs to know who exists to offer projects to people who she thinks will fit either agents or open casting. Her expertise are in casting, directing and tourism.
Tourism gave her the knowledge of languages, marketing, laws, geography, economics, and the arts. All of these components are also involved in casting. She says she was prompted to go into this field by a mixture of the rhythm, her skills were suiting this profession, she knew what to do so it just happened and she took it and it worked. She has an Associates Degree in Tourism from Technical Enterprises Tourist Activities and graduated in 1987. Silvia also has a sports competition background as swimmer and her first job was at the Catalan Swimming Federation organizing championships, dealing with press, and teaching. Today, she loves her job in casting!
Silvia is a member of the Casting Directors Association of Spain. She has been published a few times in a professional magazine called The Actors Association Magazine. In the future she says she would like to continue to do what she is doing and as she gets older she gets better and more knowledgeable, she would like to teach what she is doing now. She is looking forward to networking and connecting with other like-minded professionals, and to gaining the recognition and credibility of being a member.
