Mad Dog Casting has been bringing life to film, television and commercials in the form of supporting artists for 16 years. Briefs are varied and limitless and have included: providing a crowd of 1000 people on the streets of London at 4am,; 30 ladies with period faces in South Wales; background artists for a modern day series set in Cumbria; hundreds of ethnic faces in Manchester and a body double for a Hollywood star. The art of casting authentic extras is our business, and quality search, selection, logistics, payroll and support with 24 hour access is Mad Dog's standard approach to working with its clients.
We are proud to have worked on many of the nominated TV series for the 2016 TV Craft Awards including providing many extras to BAFTA Nominees: Wolf Hall (including the Ladies-in-Waiting pictured); This Is England '90; Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell; Catastrophe, Broadchurch; Cucumber; and Fungus the Bogeyman. The challenges of making sure that we find and provide the right people, in terms of look and size is part of the attention to detail needed to help make sure managing the extras for those we work with runs as smoothly as possible. This year we wanted to recognise those in costume who work tirelessly making our extras look the part. We are delighted to sponsor the Costume Design category.
