Ms. Paule serves as a guest lecturer for drama/film classes at the college and university levels.  She can travel for in-person master classes or utilize video conferencing platforms for distance learning.

She also coaches one-on-one for all types of talent and auditions, in addition to guiding those new to the business.  To contact for lecturing or coaching, write to info at candiscasting dot com.

If you are an actor looking to hone your on-camera skills, perhaps one of our workshops is right for you.  While there are no classes being offered at this time, to receive a notice, place yourself on our mailing list: sandi at actorsforreel dot com.

Please note:  Enrollment and participation in a workshop is not, nor will ever be, a guarantee that you will be cast in a Candis Casting project.  This is a class designed to educate you and enhance your on-camera auditioning skills.




Candis Casting works with talent of all ages, races, genders, and ethnicities from throughout the Southwest.  To be a part of our database, please send an ~300kb headshot (jpg) along with a resume (pdf) to cctalentsubmission at gmail dot com - links are not accepted.  In the body of your email, include your cell phone number and what city you live in.  Don't have a resume?  Please find an example and create one.  Submissions of just a headshot will not be considered as they must also have a resume.


Whether you are a first time talent, or you've been in the business for years, Candis Casting is looking forward to reviewing your materials.



If you are beginning your journey in the career of an actor, if your child is interested in the business and you need to learn more, or if you have an important audition and need some coaching/guidance, we can coach you and fill in the gaps.  Please know that we will never coach a talent who is auditioning for one of the projects we are casting.  We can coach on-stage projects and on-camera projects - with tips and insights that will take your audition to the next level!

When it comes to the business of being an actor, our coaching will help you to understand what agents are looking for, how to market yourself, the best way to find auditions, and headshot and resume insights.  Write to us at cctalentsubmission at gmail dot com for more information.



All talent in every project deserves to feel comfortable and protected on a stage or film set.  As a consent forward artist, D. Candis Paule has extensive training as an intimacy director (stage) and intimacy coordinator (film).  Courses completed range from basic knowledge to specific training in BDSM/Kink. 


The role of an Intimacy Coordinator is not to suppress but to serve as an additional resource in realizing the director's vision. In essence, the Intimacy Coordinator facilitates an environment in which actors understand what is expected of them in hyper-exposed scenes and ensures there is informed consent.  To connect with Candis and work with her as an intimacy professional, reach out to her at cctalentsubmission at gmail dot com.
