ELISABETH
JERESKI
[Casting Director]
In 1996, Elisabeth began her casting career with the independent family-oriented film, Soccer Dog with James Marshall and Olivia D'Abo. Sony Pictures quickly picked up the film for $2 million and a small franchise began. More recently, Elisabeth cast Open House: The Musical for director Dan Mirvish, the co-founder of Slamdance. Open House is an ensemble including Sally Kellerman, Anthony Rapp and Ann Magnuson. She followed that with 'my tiny universe' for directors Lucy Phillips and Glen Scantlebury starring Lesley Ann Warren, John Heard and Debi Mazar. In a more controversial mode, Elisabeth cast The Fluffer for directors Wash Westmoreland and Richard Glatzer. She searched thoroughly for a cast that appealed to both men and women, and who would do nudity. The Fluffer was followed by Bruno Dumont's film, Twentynine Palms (Venice Film Festival, 2003), which sent shock waves through the European film industry. As Mr. Dumont likes to work with raw talent, the search included combing the streets of Paris for the lead female character. Additionally, she has been invited to become a programmer for the Slamdance Film Festival, which seeks out original and thoughtful work by new directors.
CYXORK 7 was a life changing experience for Liz. To her horror she realized that the Cyxork was not a work of fiction especially after the Cyxork implanted its slave-chip into Liz and so cast her as its permanent casting director. We feel sorry for Liz, but what can we do about fate?
