From Team Pegine, Inc. 4/13/16

Pegine - AHHHHHHHMAZING!  The role players were wonderful.  Rita, it was better than I ever imagined!

Tamera - You hit a home run with this job!!  Everything is going great--one more session to go. Actors are enjoying it as well. Great job and much appreciated!!!


Thank you, Rita!

The assembled talent fit the commercial better than we had hoped and I want to express my gratitude for all of your hard work and perseverance with our casting needs.  Caleb, Erin and Allen fleshed out the writer’s vision (and more) and also had a lot of fun working together.  You already know Caleb and his skill, but if you don’t know Erin you may want to note her as an actress with exceptional range as well as being very easy to work with.  We have so many great takes from her that we will have a challenge in edit picking from all of our favorites for that one line!  Allen was rock solid with his performance and well worth importing from LA.  He had the looks, the swing, and the acting chops.  The extras did well and really enjoyed all the time they got hitting balls on the PGA range.  A great cast all around, thanks to you!

LinkedIn Recommendations

Joe Schreiber has endorsed your work as President at Martini Shot Casting Ltd. Co..

Details of the Recommendation: "We are all measured by how we react during the toughest of times. Rita Manyette passed her test with us with flying colors. First, she turned around a last minute request for casting of 16 actors for a television spot on a major network. Then on the eve of our shoot, Rita suffered a family tragedy, took care of her personal responsibilities and showed up an hour early for the shoot the next day. Rita's professionalism, affable personality and resourcefulness were integral to our success. We plan to have her travel for future business. Best of all, I've made a new friend."
