Working with RedPenny over the past few years has been a great experience for us. Suzanne and her crew deliver excellent service and understand clients' budgetary concerns, as well as timing constraints. From a production standpoint, Suzanne understands the contractual needs, and keeps information organized and accessible. The interactive experience on the RedPenny casting site allows for ease of use and up-to-date shared communications among agency, producer and photographer. We have relied on RedPenny's expertise for sizable pharma jobs, and are pleased with the outcome again and again.

I teamed up with RedPenny on a project where my client had very specific ideas about what their customers look like. I knew from working with Suzanne in the past that it wouldn't take rounds and rounds of casting to find what we were looking for. She asked all the right questions at the start and delivered loads of options on RedPenny's wonderful interactive site. The whole process was collaborative and seamless. I look forward to our next project together.

What I love about RedPenny is that you can give them the specs and then move on to other project facets that need tending. Knowing full-well that the talent choices will be fantastic makes projects go so much smoother. Suzanne is a trusted and 100 percent dependable partner.

On Monday, we exchanged emails about setting up introductory meetings.  On Wednesday, before we'd even met, I called RedPenny and said, ‘I need casting by tomorrow'.  In less than twenty-four hours they delivered. Over 100 male and female athletes had come into the casting. That night, client made a selection, and by Friday we’d booked the models for a Monday shoot. Now that’s service and attention to detail. I was also extremely impressed by the website, which makes selection easy and, if necessary, viewing private. I love that feature. We’ll be back. Hopefully next time we’ll have twenty-five hours.

RedPenny's incredible casting for our global Minute Maid campaign was an imperative piece to our puzzle. Their efficiency helped to avoid a delayed production schedule. The casting was so tremendous that our end client established brand demographics that were not intended for the campaign. The talent was picture perfect, and blended in to our campaign seamlessly. A sincere thank you!

The Chevron campaign was a huge casting challenge. In addition to the talent being the focus of the ads, there was the quantity (over 100 talent to be booked) and extremely specific, corporate-directed requirements: Nigerian, Angolan, Kazakh, Saudi and Indonesian talent in addition to Caucasian, African American, Hispanic and Pan-Asian. RedPenny nailed it by providing plenty of choices, fantastic professional talent and phenomenal street casting. Their real people turned out to be the stars of the 12-day shoot. By far, the best solution I have seen for organizing, sorting and presenting talent is RedPenny's web-based interactive software.

Casting was crucial to the success of this multiple-day shoot. RedPenny knocked it out of the park with fantastic presentation, and delivery of quality talent to satisfy a demanding worldwide cultural casting brief, that called for Angolans, Saudis, Nigerians and Kazakhs. The agency and client were thrilled, which made it that much easier for me to stay focused on making compelling images for their campaign.

Suzanne and her team at RedPenny are a treat to work with. 

They make my life easy. They are quick to respond and pick up the ball.  I always push for authenticity when it comes to casting. Real people who look real. Suzanne understands this and nicely streamlines the talent selection. Somehow she finds them -- even without much notice, and in faraway places.

Everyone was really pleased with our Chase talent -- a combination of street casting and real-looking models -- who made the shoot that much more successful.

RedPenny makes the impossible seem almost effortless.Their casting crew consistently handles the most elaborate and time-sensitive projects with a perfect mix of enthusiasm, high energy and professionalism. They are especially spot-on when it comes to casting the most complex specs: mothers and newborns, and diverse ethnicities. In addition to all of their other attributes, RedPenny provides talent who have a believable chemistry, making my job that much easier.

You’re in a hotel lobby in Bangkok at 2:00 in the afternoon. The talent arrives from the U.S. and the Client decides you need someone different, but you’re scheduled to start shooting in the morning. You quickly log on to the casting that was done by RedPenny, easily pick another model using the Quicktime video, and your new talent arrives from Hong Kong by 8:00 a.m. the next day. Who else can deliver that? International scale and super high quality, right to you, whether you’re in New York City or Bora Bora.

When the NTT Data worldwide campaign was approved, at first the task of casting and selecting 32 talent to represent multiple cultures and occupations seemed daunting. That is where RedPenny came in and saved the day. The casting was flawless, the client was thrilled, and the kicker was that RedPenny actually was able to find and cast a real 20-year-old handicapped man for one of the Hero ads. Not only was his shoot a success, but it was one of the highlights of his life.

"My projects -- like everyone else's -- are often fast, budget-conscious and unpredictable. Quality is always non-negotiable. RedPenny gets it. Their presentation is excellent and they always deliver on time with professionalism and good humor. They make my job easier, which is not a simple task."

RedPenny provides me with peace of mind. I know that the casting will get done right, and be delivered on time. In addition, the interface they use to present the talent is by far the best solution I have ever seen.

RedPenny is by far the best casting agency I have worked with. Give them the parameters of the job, and they take care of the rest. The software they use is by far the best for both video and stills and makes for collaborating with people in various locations very easy. I would highly recommend them for video/stills casting.

The RedPenny casting technology is far better than what I've seen from any other agency. What really impresses me about RedPenny is the way the photographer approaches each person with a degree of subtlety. The lighting is beautiful: professional, soft and even. It brings out the expression of the model and allows me to get a real sense of the person. It's the same with the Quicktime movies; the talent is well lit and you get great insight into their personality, which is fantastic. When you get to RedPenny's casting site you think, 'this is what a casting should look like'. The interface is flawless and user-friendly.

I have never seen better casting. The talent photos are not only properly exposed, but they really capture their personality. And the website -- well, it couldn't be more organized or useful. RedPenny is the best.

These guys understand casting. We did a project with them where we cast in nine different countries.  It was all integrated into one area where you could manage all the talent with ease. It doesn't get any better than that.
