Who We Are
River Red Casting was founded in 2011 by Terence C. Stanley and Serena Rosario-Stanley (formerly an Associate Casting Director at T.E.C. Casting) where she worked with directors such as Spike Lee ("The 25th Hour") and the late Sidney Lumet ("100 Centre Street"). River Red Casting is a minority / woman-owned business.
Since its inception in 2011, River Red has kept busy in the web series world having cast principals for the hilarious East WillyB, the very sexy, Harlem-based Lenox Avenue, and the fiery Whatever It Takes...as well as principals for two Ann Taylor/LOFT industrials, a commercial for Emirates Airlines, stand-ins for ABC News and both principals and background for several music videos, including Mariah Carey's "Triumphant" video.
Today, River Red continues to work with top companies in the industry, including Netflix, Hallmark, Toyota, TruTV, DeLeón Tequila, Island Def Jam, Epic Records, itCosmetics, Funny or Die, just to name a few. Highly recommended by the productions they've worked with, River Red is vastly growing in the film industry.
Why Choose River Red
Well, not necessarily for the scary image crossing your screen right now.
We're not a Casting Agency, per se...we're a team of Casting Directors who work under one entity. As a team, we have over 30 years of casting experience...starting from the days of T.E.C. Casting, headed by our business manager, Mr. Tuffy Questell.
Well yes, of course, everyone says they're "different"...hell, isn't that the main question you get when you're trying to land a job over that other people are up for? "What sets you apart from everyone else?"
According to many actors who have worked for us, they haven't experienced other Casting Directors (or Agencies) who do the following:
* We do our best to let every actor (who submits to a project) know when they did NOT get a role...so they're not sitting around wondering what's going on.
* We stick up for our Actors (from Principals to Extras) if they are being treated unfairly on set. And we our Actors accountable for any possible wrong doing as well.
* We probably over-communicate (to a fault) to make sure information doesn't fall through the cracks.
"It was a pleasure working with your crew. All were patient, professional and kind."
