Jennifer Venditti

Can I Ask You a Question?

Casting director Jennifer Venditti's process relies on “chance encounters with random strangers” who capture her imagination. She usually engages them with a simple opener: “Can I ask you a question?”


Can I Ask You a Question? is a thorough exploration into Venditti’s uncommon casting process that brings real life to narrative films and series including Good Time, Uncut Gems, and Euphoria


With over 300 pages of original casting photos, writing by Venditti, plus interviews and contributions from collaborators including director Josh Safdie, photographer Alec Soth, and casting scouts Eleonore Hendricks and Michele Mansoor, the book is a rare behind-the-scenes look at the work of one of film’s most visionary figures.
