About Us

As a young graduate in the 80’s Jeanne spent 7 years in the editing room, learning invaluable film-making skills from award-winning talents like director Darryl Roodt and editor Max Lemmon.

During a 2 year stint in Amsterdam Jeanne freelanced as a Dutch/English translator for Vrije Universiteit. Returning to Cape Town in the early 90’s she briefly worked as a casting director, casting some popular and long-running commercials. She completed an Ogilvy Mather copy test which resulted in job offers from top advertising agencies. Jeanne decided against a career in advertising, becoming instead a Film and TV Line Producer.

A four year sabbatical in the Irish countryside saw Jeanne supplementing her income with feature stories characterised by her tongue-in-cheek humour, for one of Ireland’s largest circulation national newspapers, the Evening Herald.

In 2005 Jeanne opened Casting Cape Town, employing a team of talented and creative individuals who share her passion for excellence.

Audition Tips for Actors

  • Identify the range of characters you can and want to play. Let your agent know what these are so that you don’t get sent to castings that are not suitable for you.
  • Style to brief. This makes your audition more authentic.
  • Read the script and be prepared.
  • See the casting director as your best friend. Each actor presents the casting director with an opportunity to get an amazing performance; they want you to nail it as much as you do.
  • The successful audition is a combination of many factors that sometimes go beyond your skill as an actor. Don’t get despondent if you don’t land it this time.
