I have been a Casting Director for television and film drama for many years and possess a wide ranging and thorough knowledge of all aspects of the casting process; from initial cast suggestions and advice on casting budgets to organising smoothly run casting sessions and concluding final contractual negotiations.
I have a comprehensive and widespread knowledge of actors and actresses and maintain excellent working relationships with all the major theatrical agencies in the UK, US and Europe; providing me with full access to the best acting talent available, both established and upcoming.
I believe passionately about the quality of service I provide. I deal with all aspects of the casting proceedure personally and do not delegate important responsibilities or decision making to assistants or others. I run all my casting sessions in person.
From the outset of the casting process to it’s conclusion, I possess the ability, enthusiasm and dedication to ensure that the procedure is professional, efficient, enjoyable and, most importantly, successful.
"Matt has an intelligence about casting that is impressive. Anybody can cast the obvious, but Matt delivers ideas that are inspirational.
