Shannon Davidson Productions provides model casting services for shows produced by SDP as well as outside projects. The art of selecting the right model for the right job is something that SDP prides itself on doing well.
SDP casts women and men for runway shows as well as presentations, informals, television, film and promotions. Casting requires finding the model to fit the need and look of a given brand or event.Casting also includes managing all model rate negotiation and payment with agencies. SDP handles all of these aspects of casting.
SDP works with agencies across the country to cast models for projects in their given market. Models can also be cast in larger markets to work on shows in smaller markets. In these cases, SDP handles all travel arrangements for the models that are booked.
Castings for clients can be done remotely, through the use of video castings and email. Submissions are edited by SDP so the client does not have to go through endless submissions from agencies.
