NARRATIVE

We've had the pleasure of casting more than sixty films. Ready to collaborate with us?

NON-ACTORS

All actors are real people, but not all real people are actors.

We've cast for health departments, universities, construction companies, and more when it comes to non-actors. These castings take longer but bring hyper-specific depth and honesty to every story that brings non-actors in.

TESTIMONIALS

Sarah, we cannot thank you and your team enough. You all have been nothing short of spectacular to work with.

Thank you for being super organized and helpful through all of these fire drills today – it’s refreshing to have an organized and knowledgeable partner.

I wanted to reach out and thank you so so much again for helping us cast this film. We wrapped production Sunday night. You truly helped pick such an amazing and talented cast we could not have done this without you.

I wanna call out how much I appreciate how on top of things you are already and let you know it's so nice to work with you already. Thank you, thank you!!  I love when we meet new folks who really run a tight ship.

Sarah and her team are fantastic. Their knowledge of the Chicago talent pool is unsurpassable. The casting sessions are fun and help inject much-needed energy into any project. Best of all, they deliver great talent. Big fan of the work from Compass Casting.

Sarah just wanted to drop you a quick note of thanks. I was so happy with the great group you brought in, we felt spoiled for choice. Appreciate it!

Bokeh Background is the background casting division of Compass Casting, bringing principal casting thoughtfulness and organization to the BG realm.


Whether you need SAG actors in Chicago or a new talent pool created in the small town where you're filming, we're here to help.
