I’ve done a fair bit of casting, you can have a look at some of the highlights here.
I take a practical approach when first engaged in a casting job, working with the client and production to consolidate budget, schedule, character briefs, strategy and expectations first. Then the creative vision takes over.
From street casting at bars for the Bachelor, to finding unique models for high end stills campaigns. Every day families for Anaconda or a documentary on the ABC. If you need cute kids for Kmart, or a stunts-man for a tv show I can get it sorted
When working with talent in the studio, my focus is to ensure the talent feels welcome, appreciated, valued and focused. I aim to dispelling any myths that hold fear in a performer to unlock their truth. Creating and sharing with them in a genuinely safe space enables us both to do our best work. Helping talent to enjoy the moment is and empowering them is my pleasure.
After connecting with the director and gaining a clear sense of the project and vision, I happily go about finding the perfect person for each role.
I open all roles to all ethnicities and seek council from the MEAA when required. I will only cast in line with recommended talent fees. Gender, age, religion and sexuality of talent is irrelevant to my process.
