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.
Emma Thorpe – Commercial Agent is currently in her final year completing a Bachelor of Screen Arts at the University of Notre Dame Fremantle Double Majoring in Film and Theatre, this has let her foster her love and appreciation for the arts in all capacities. The opportunity to explore and study her craft in an amazing environment with likeminded individuals made the switch to Casting an extremely rewarding experience. After working directly underneath Hallie for the past year and a half she has now taken over the commercial arm of Filmbites Talent Agency. As an Actor herself most recently training with Annie Murtagh Monks in her Advanced Studio she knows the value of going above and beyond to help actors receive every opportunity available to them, not only so that they can excel at their craft but so they can have their best foot forward in every audition.
