Amanda Tabak established Candid Casting in 1993 as a full service casting company with the capacity to carry out large-scale projects, real people searches and quick
turnaround commercial work to the highest standard. Today, Candid Casting is one of the UK’s leading facilities with our own West London studio. Between Amanda
and Jennifer, they have a remarkable knowledge of actors and work with the best directors and brands out there. Seamlessly balancing creativity with organisation,
they lead a spirited team of researchers, session runners and street casters to fulfil any brief. The Candid Casting studio uses the latest upload technology. Our clients
can view online castings in real time, download in full immediately after the session, Skype cast for overseas directors and we can use our technology whilst street
casting or on location. Producers attending castings are welcome to use the office facilities, with desk space, access to an iMac, internet and landline. We are happy to
travel to an alternative studio to run a casting session, should our client prefer.
