Casting Direction

From street casting to navigating the ever-changing social influencer landscape, we provide our clients with fresh talent that is tailored to their unique brand requirements.

In addition to casting for a specific project, we provide our clients with seasonal casting, where we review talent across the globe, presenting a curated selection of faces best suited to represent their brand.





What We do

Creative + Studio Operations

We partner with our clients to identify and implement big picture strategies and best practices around creative and content to ensure they can meet the needs of today's "content velocity".

By analyzing existing planning and activity around creative and marketing operations – including in-house and out-of-house agencies and studios -- we help our clients put actionable changes into place that optimize the people, processes and technologies that make up the business of creative.

Who We Are

“The women whom I love and admire for their strength and grace did not get that way because shit worked out. They got that way because shit went wrong, and they handled it. They handled it in a thousand different ways on a thousand different days, but they handled it. Those women are my superheroes.”
Elizabeth Gilbert
