Maura Fay the company is 25 years young. For those years, as now, we have been at the forefront of Australia’s film and television industry. The inimitable Maura Fay formed Maura Fay Casting in 1987. She was a tour de force in the industry and a great one for spotting talent and networking between actors, producers, networks and studios. She was at the forefront of film and television during the time that Australia became a global influence during the 1990’s, aggressively seeking relationships in the United States allowing creative business people to see the wealth of talent and opportunity in Australia. She worked out of Sydney but opened the Melbourne & Queensland offices in 1989. Then, as is now, the company had a presence at each of the major studios on the east coast – Fox Studios in Sydney, Docklands in Melbourne and Warner Roadshow in Queensland. Maura sadly passed away in 2001 but she left behind the integrity of her business acumen, her joy and passion for the job and her effervescent personality. Maura’s sister Ann Fay had worked with Maura for many years and continues her legacy today. Alongside Lou Mitchell, Marianne Jade and Leigh Pickford we are proud to embody those foundations and continue to work today as one of the most creative, exciting, successful casting companies in Australia.
We are passionate about our work and have nurtured and helped shape some of Australia’s finest talents. We are a dynamic group of people that work across all mediums – film, television, stage, musical theatre, TVCs – and continuously seek to provide the best talent Australia can offer. Our ability to combine the creative demands of the audition room, with the reality of the business side of the job are second to none. We are able to provide the very latest technology and, with the changing demands of the modern world, are in position to have actors auditions available in very short time frames. We have long associations with all facets of the industry both in Australia and internationally, most notably Los Angeles, New York and London.
