Hallie Mckeig – Casting Agent has helmed Filmbites for over 10 years and launched the careers of some of Australia’s most up and coming actors.
With a deep love of story and character Hallie believes her job is two fold. One to provide the best support for the artist as they develop and create a career in this industry and two, to help the production find their character.
When looking for actors to represent Hallie is looking for heart and truthfulness. People who have a genuine love of story and are bold enough to be vulnerable enough to tell that story. When an actor can find a connection with the character and be truthful to their circumstance, magic is created.
Hallie continues to be an active member of the screen industry and is currently on the board of WIFT, Women in Film and Television as well as a senior manager at Creative Soul Management.
