Experience, judgment and taste enable Berland Casting to achieve creativity and meet the needs of our clients. Our understanding of these needs bring us into the world of comedy, drama, beauty, and real people, delving into both pop and underground cultures. Protecting our clients against a myriad of unexpected complications is of the utmost importance. We craft a harmonious balance of creativity and business.
There is nothing more stimulating to us than the casting process, throwing the net out for talent, never settling for the obvious that is presented, digging, sifting, honing, applying our casting sensibilities, to finally defining the possibilities for our client selections.
We pride ourselves in living up to the challenges our clients present. We have successfully cast people to shave their heads on camera, delved into the world of NASCAR racing, film aficionados, def poetry jam, tuna fishermen and truck drivers, actors flying from wires, models who can act, seasoned actors with Broadway, film and TV backgrounds, celebrities and many other types and situations.
Over twenty five years of experience of casting on-camera, voice over, animation, celebrity endorsements, industrials, and short films has won us awards including Clio, Houston International Film Festival, Art Directors Club, Addy, New York Film Festival, Mobius Advertising Award and International Film and Television Festival.
We are excited to have been a part of the creative process by finding the talent for the spots listed on our website.
