2019 – Happy New Year

Today sees the GBM Casting team back to work and ready to see what 2019 is going to bring.

Just now, while things are quiet gives the team time to get involved in housekeeping and recruitment so we are ready to go!

Are you ready to go? Check your profile now!
Up to date photos and all your details in your profile including measurements and skills are SO important. We cannot stress how important this is. If your profile is not up to date you could miss out on jobs. So please check and make sure your profile is bulging with detail.

Photo shoots for new recruits and those who need new photos are scheduled for the end of January. Please contact us if this is you!

A new year allows the GBM Casting team to look back over the last year. This reminds us just how well things are going and where we need to get better.

Here are a few GBM Casting highlights from 2018:

Being part of a thriving Scottish TV and Film Industry
2018 saw us continuing to work alongside all productions and 2ADs who keep the industry alive and kicking.

Contributing to the Scottish Parliament Enquiry into the Scottish Screen Sector.

Biggest Challenge of 2018
Sole supplier to the feature film Marionette filmed in Portsoy and Aberdeen.

Most amusing job of 2018
Facebook Live Ad for Innes and Gunn, Mangoes on the Run Mango IPA. This job saw our SAs as human fruit machines in orange morph suits.

Bringing in the Prestigious Brands
Seeing Constance on the Talisker Whisky ‘Wild Spirit’ advert filmed in the Isle of Skye.

Talent not Credits – Supporting Scottish talent
GBM Casting was proud to see the amazing talent of Emma Snellgrove as Mary Queen of Scots and Gordon Millar as Walter of Atholl on BBC Scotland Rise of the Clans.

And not forgetting Deborah as The Permanently Furious Security Guard on BBC Scotland Chase the Case https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IMHviCvzoT8

Supporting the Scottish Film Talent Network
2018 saw Alison Piper direct Duck Daze a black comedy drama. GBM Casting were proud to help Alison reach her crowd funding goal.

Most importantly, a big thank you to everyone on our books for the early starts, the long hours, turning up on time and with the right costume, helping each other with lifts to location and going above what is required.

GBM Casting can’t do it without you and we look forward to working with you in the months ahead.

Big hugs,

Graeme, Irenée and Fiona

“I have worked with Graeme and his team at GBM casting for several years and have always found them a joy to work with. Once briefed they deliver a range of possible cast members quickly and if they don’t happen to have the right type on their books they will do their best to find that person elsewhere.

GBM work to my sometimes ridiculous tight timescales and even tighter budgets and I really get the impression that they know something about the people on their books (which is backed up on set when the cast talk about GBM)

The talent from GBM has always arrived promptly, been personable and at ease and know what is expected of them on set.

I can heartily recommend them for any casting requirements.”
