“Sony PSP” ad – Mercedes Crescenti TV

Francesca was an absolute star on the Sony PSP shoot. She was very patient with all the technical hold-ups. Most importantly, she took direction really well and gave the director what he needed every time. We were seriously impressed!

“Another Life” – Kate Plantin

Dear Diane,

I would like to pass on to others how impressed I was by the standard of young people that you represent. I, along with director of Another Life, Philip Goodhew, spent a very enjoyable day with you.

We were both impressed by how well the workshop was run and by how talented and well-behaved your students were. They responded very well to us and had a lot to offer. I would most certainly come back to you when in the future I need children from the Merseyside area.

“Across The Universe” – Sound Films Ltd.

I wanted to thank you for all your hard work on “Across the Universe”.

After 3 months filming in New York, the look and feel of Liverpool became a vital element to our movie.

All the children who worked on the film performed brilliantly, behaved impeccably on set and were a credit to you and your agency. Thank you for all your hard work in casting and licensing.

I hope we can work together again.

Best regards

David Brown
UK Producer

“1982” – Paul Whittington

Dear Diane,

Many thanks for your invaluable help in casting the above project.

To have such a well constructed workshop, tailored to the script, was hugely beneficial to judge the boys suitably for the role. I was extremely impressed by the talent on display. They were all enthusiastic, responsive and eager to learn, which is a credit to your approach.

In Chris, I feel we have someone with not only the ability to play the part, but the maturity to enjoy the experience. I hope that we can ensure he has a rewarding and enjoyable time.

I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone seeking casting services and hopefully we will work together in the future.

Many thanks again

Paul Whittington

Letter from Parents

Dear Mrs. Lamont & Sue the Chaperone,

We just wanted to drop you a short line to let you know how much our daughter, Caroline, enjoyed the recent filming of “Hilary & Jackie”.

The experience of being involved in the making of a major production film is something that has surpassed our wildest dreams. Indeed, since joining your agency earlier this year, we are both delighted with the level of confidence Caroline has achieved in attending various auditions.

We were a little bit anxious about Caroline working with strangers in a strange environment at the film studio, but Sue the chaperone did a great job in settling her nerves and making her feel in very safe hands. Please send her a big thank you from us!

Kind regards from two very proud parents.

Mr. & Mrs. Davie

“Liam” – Liam Films

Dear Diane,

As you know we have recently successfully completed filming ‘Liam’ and I would like to take the opportunity to thank you on behalf of the producers, myself and all at Liam Films for your efforts over the past few weeks. All the children were extremely well behaved and looked fantastic in their period costume!

As yet we don’t have an exact transmission date for ‘Liam’ but we will let you know when it will be screened nearer the time.

Once again many thanks.

Best Wishes

Donna Molloy
Production Manager

“Hilary & Jackie” – Oxford Film Company Ltd

Dear Diane,

Now that our filming is coming to an end in Liverpool, I am taking this opportunity to thank you, your children and chaperones for their co-operation and hard work during the filming of ‘HILARY AND JACKIE’.

The children were extremely well behaved and provided excellent performances whenever required, and both the director and producer were very pleased with the results.

I would strongly recommend your services to any production company shooting in the North West in the future.

Yours sincerely

Rupert Ryle-Hodges
Assistant Director

“Coca Cola” ad – Annex

Dear Diane,

Re: Coca Cola – 2 x 30 secs TV Commercials.

Just a short note to say thank you very much for all your help on the above production.

I would be grateful if you could pass on my special thanks to Jo for all her help with organising all the children on the day and generally making my life easier. She was brilliant! Dealing with 24 children is not as easy as it sounds, as I am sure you know.

On top of all the help I received getting the children to where they should be, I would like you to know that the kids themselves were great, they were all polite, well behaved and honestly a pleasure to be around. I also know that Mitch himself was extremely pleased with their performances.

All in all it was a very successful shoot, made easier by Lamont and I would not hesitate to use you again when shooting in the area.

Kind regards,

Sam Lodge
Production Manager
