About

We’re a European casting agency based in Amsterdam, meaning we research our talents all over Europe.

As casting directors casting talent, we are into humour, beauty, slice of life and even action.

We have casted many commercials which have won industry awards. Foreign readers may recall Heineken’s ‘Walking closet’ or Volkswagen ‘Das Hund’ and local readers KPN ‘Goeiemoggel’ or Telfort ‘Ex-miljonair’ to name a few.

First and foremost we’re into casting, casting actors or researching street or real talent. It’s about meeting casting briefs and making the idea work through casting.

We always ‘cast’ a close eye on presentation, costs, production value and negotiations.
