Since its inception in 2002, Catch Casting has carved a place for itself as New Zealand’s pre-eminent multi-media casting service. Founder Stu Turner’s early roots in street casting have been foundational for the business it is today; this is a team of restless perfectionists with a keen eye for human potential as well as a respect for the magic of talent - both raw and finely hewed – on both sides of the camera. Catch offers a multi studio operation with a complete digital infrastructure to support the human capital at its heart.
STU TURNER. Founder of Catch Casting, Stu originally trained as an actor before moving to the other side of the camera where he found his calling.
