Melanie Forchetti, Head of Casting for Forchetti Casting, LLC, has been finding top talent for feature films, television shows, commercials, print, educational, and corporate projects on the East Coast for over 10 years. She has also taught Acting for twenty years, because she finds it important to take time out to help actors perfect their craft. She began teaching “Acting for the Camera” at the Gene Frankel Theatre in collaboration with the New York Institute of Technology in New York City. With a BFA in Acting from Tisch School of the Arts at NYU and training at the Lee Strasberg Institute, her classes are built from a foundation of Method acting that translates to compelling performances on camera. She has also taught acting classes at TVI in Los Angeles, Mike Lemon Casting, offered private workshops at many talent agencies in the Tri-State area, as well as taught online classes for Backstage. She believes in building characters from the ground up, breathing life into each role through personal experiences, mapping out characters based on the script, and making strong choices in every scene. She can also help decode nuances in scripts for actors and discover a character’s throughline.

Melanie has also written & produced feature films, TV Shows, and commercials in New York. In Los Angeles, she worked in Business Affairs at the talent agency Writers & Artists as well as The Firm, a celebrity management company, where she worked with Samuel L Jackson, Teri Hatcher, Robert Forrester, among many other A-List talent.
