Covid 19 Update

 

Contributing to the entertainment industry through innovative and intelligent casting, keeping health and safety first.

 

Self taping, and/or virtual auditions (Skype/Zoom) have been the main format for our castings, but we are holding live castings as well. 

Our Casting team is here to help you nail your virtual or self-taped audition!

 

Actors - we encourage you to learn how to self-tape and practice your framing for your Skype and Zoom auditions!

  

Appointments will be staggered, actors will wait in their car and receive a text when we are ready for them, we will use hands free check in, and do our best to use social distancing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Heinz Casting team works with the Production Team to get as much knowledge as we can about the scope of the project. Reading scripts, understanding their vision, discussing character descriptions and getting a feel for the intensity they are looking for is just part of our job. 

We schedule experienced actors we know would be great for the role and rely on talent agents to send us their best actors. An important part of our job is knowing our clients preferences and providing a balance of established actors while also bringing in a variety of new talent. 

We encourage diversity, and try to cast talent from all walks of life.  

 

As casting directors, we have to be culturally sensitive and remember authenticity and creativity is key. ​

We connect with Agents and Actors and give them an informative breakdown, so they can give you their best performance. We provide clear and concise direction, but also allow the actor to be creative and show their vision for the role. 

Attracting local, regional, national and international clients, our solid reputation is efficiency and quick response time!

 

 


 

We find a cast that everyone is excited about, and we are the company that finds the "hard to find".

Self tape instruction should outline the framing the client wants you to use.

Thank you so much, yes I have been receiving all the recent scripts via email. I was treated with such respect and it felt like family. Working on David Makes Man Season 2, has open doors for me. I appreciate you believing in me. Have an awesome day

-Diedra Starr

Actor

I wrapped last Thursday for the FOREMAN role for DMM S2. Thank you so much for the opportunity. I had a great time! The cast and crew were so welcoming. I feel very grateful to have been a part of the project and to work with everyone I had the chance to encounter. Thanks again!

- Aris

Actor

Kudos from our client in Resorts!

Great job everyone! Couldn’t have done it without your expertise!

- UOR Resorts 

I've been learning so much and having a great time as a stand-in on David Makes Man this season!

- Jonas

Actor/Model

Thank you for searching and narrowing down real people for our team. I don’t think we could be happier with who we shot for the resorts the last part of this year. It’s a big feather in the team's cap for stepping out and letting creative opportunity happen to capture authenticate moments with actual real families.  

 

I told everyone that at the end of shooting, we need to want to be friends with everyone we shoot, to make the pieces work. 

 

I think who we shot at each property really reflected our task at hand. 

 

I thank you for absorbing our challenge and giving us who we shot.  

 

For any project like this, without talent, we can’t do anything! Thank you. It really means a lot to our business and especially our creative team.

- Tom

Producer | Universal Orlando

 

Heather and team,

One of my main goals of 2018 was to book a Co Star role on a TV show. Thanks to you and your team I booked "David Makes Man" as the Woman Church goer. That could not have happened if you and your team didn’t grant me an audition. For that I am extremely grateful. I know you get countless messages but Today, I wanted to celebrate you and you team to say THANK YOU HEATHER and the Heinz Team! You’ve helped me get one step closer to living my dream.

 

- Maria Artis

Booked a Co Star Role!

Everything went PERFECTLY! We couldn’t have been happier with Emalie’s performance. She was phenomenal. I would 100% recommend her.
 
Craig 

CSK Creative

Just wanted to thank you for the fantastic work assembling the auditions for our Winn Grips shoot these last 2 days. 

The 8 talent chosen were, in a word, amazing. All fun and funny and talented and game for anything, plus they soldiered through some chilly and windy conditions out there on the golf course both days. 

I am adding them all to my "definitely hire again" list!!

- Kirsten S.

Golf Channel

I have worked with Heather and HEINZ PRODUCTIONS since her companies inception. Heather is a seasoned professional within the talent & castings markets. Heather and her 247cast.com team are fantastic partners! I have hired them on a variety of projects, from large full scale productions to small one-day assignments. Heather has a tremendous ability to move quickly and provide effective solutions to my casting needs. Her never ending attention to detail and timely manner in providing a seamless casting from 10 to a 1000, HEINZ PRODUCTIONS can work wonders for you.

I would recommend and work with Heather any day.

- Paula

Universal Orlando

Hi Heather: I am the Producer for Big Break NFL. I picked the talent for the shoot from Heinz and I couldn’t have asked for a better cast. I am more than thrilled with the the gentlemen that made the final four cast. They were on time. They followed direction beautifully. Craig was awesome, he putted on cue. There wasn't a diva in the bunch. I would love to hire all of them again for separate occasions.

 

Thank you.

- Karen Wright

Producer | Big Break NFL

I appreciate the diligence, professionalism and great attitude that Heather and her team bring to each and every project they run.

Heather always thinks not only on behalf of the clients but on the talents and talent's agent and always offers great rates for all her bookings.

Furthermore, the feedback I have received from my talents who have attended her castings and also from the ones who have booked her jobs have been nothing short of kind treatment, organized and excellent productions.

 

- Sandra Suarez-Fielding

Owner/Agent | SELECT MIAMI TALENTS

I truly enjoyed working with the Heinz team. From the initial communication, to the on-set coordination, to the post shoot follow up, their level of professionalism is hands down amazing. 

Heather runs a world class team. 

- Zahide Wallace!

Heather Heinz and her team managed a very challenging non-traditional casting assignment for me. 

 

I was producing a series of videos for the US Army and needed to find/film testimonials from 10 Army veterans for an AOL micro-site called "Army Lifelong Success."

 

The Army provided us with an approved list of hundreds of real-life veterans all over the country and it was Heather's task to contact these veterans, screen them, obtain photos and/or video samples and submit them for client review. 

 

It was a highly sensitive, time-consuming process – and the result was a huge success as we profiled 10 superb, diverse veterans – and the US Army was enormously pleased with the final videos. 

 

Big thanks to Heather and her wonderful team!

- William Wiegman - Producer | StudioNow
