Voice-Casting Director

What does a friendly and optimistic talking frog sound like? How about a troublesome yellow 10-year-old? Just about anyone aware of pop culture could give you their best Kermit the Frog or Bart Simpson impression or perhaps enact Yoda having a conversation with Bugs Bunny. What these memorable characters all have in common is a distinctive voice that is inextricably linked to the image audiences carry in their minds. So, how does one go about achieving such a perfect pairing of personality and voice?

Talent Agent

A talent agent is responsible for securing employment opportunities for his or her roster of clients, which may include performers, screenwriters, composers, designers, and a number of other creative professionals in the entertainment industry. An agent differs from a talent manager in that an agent is licensed and operates under strict state and local laws.

Casting Associate

A studio or production company hires a casting director to find and audition actors for every role in a television or film production—from extras to leading characters. To handle the massive task of casting dozens and even hundreds of roles, the casting director will employ one or more assistants, or associates.

Casting Director

Good casting is often the make-or-break ingredient between a box-office flop and a ratings hit. To put together that magic blend of actors and actresses, studios rely on the services of a casting director. Though big names like Angelina Jolie and George Clooney rarely have to go through the extensive casting process that unknowns endure, casting directors are responsible for casting every role from the lead to “Girl on Train” or a herd of extras.
