Lee-Ann Hendrickse

Founder and Director
20 years ago, I began my journey to become a Casting Director with a small local client base and growing into working with clients from around the globe.

During this time I have developed a keen eye and mad skills for talent scouting and street cast. My career in the film industry started as a Production/Casting Assistant at Rae Goodwin Casting from 2000 – 2005. Working with this industry legend Rae Goodwin as my mentor, inspired me to become a Casting Director. Since then I have been working as an Independent Casting Director. I LOVE MY JOB and the magic of finding the perfect cast to meet director’s vision is extremely rewarding to me. I am a people’s person and the task of finding the right “fit” for a certain role fulfils me on many levels.
