Non-Actor Casting

Bring a different authenticity and depth to your next spot with non-actor casting. It's harder, it takes longer, and it's so worth it when it works!

Casting Employees

 

If there's a pool of employees who are willing and able to audition for your project, we'll help you create and facilitate this casting. If that means teaching truck drivers how to act...we can do that. 

Crashing Jobsites 


When the people you need aren't the folks who usually audition for commercials, we'll do to great lengths - including, literally, crashing job sites - to find the talent you want.

Testimonials

Sarah is a pleasure to work with from start to finish. As a creator who is also an actor, I see that the supportive atmosphere she creates by grounding the actors is integral in getting the best work. Straddling the line between being a champion for the actor and being a champion for the project is a delicate balance, but Sarah and her team do it with ease. Her approach certainly helps elevate any project and I look forward to working with her again.
