WORDS FROM PAST JOBS

Corene Mathias, President, Avalon Media

 

"I hired Randi Acton and Break-A-Leg Casting to cast and associate produce, an educational film I produced called
Beyond Awareness to Action: Ending Abuse of Women. Randi displayed exceptional skills at finding exactly the right actor for each of the 18 roles, including Oscar winner Irene Cara donating her services pro bono for the Educational Video" "Randi is truly a one-of-a-kind jewel with a contagious aura that keeps everyone around her positive highly motivated, and having fun doing it.
Her professionalism, creativity, initiative, intelligence,
and managerial skills are exceptional. She would be an asset to any project. I highly recommend her".

 

Juli C. Lasselle, Writer & Director of Locked, Mandorla Pictures LLC

"During the first week of the low budget indie film Locked, our first Assistant Director walked off set. When a crew member recommended Randi Acton, we called her immediately. Her response was instantaneous. She came on board when we were already a day behind, had an unusable schedule and an unstable set".

"She brought us back on schedule so we didn't have to add days. She managed the crew effectively and brought people on as needed in capacities that had been overlooked previously. After Randi came on board, the crew responded to her style and worked efficiently as a team. I would not only recommend her to AD any set, but also look forward to the opportunity to work with her again".

 

Tohid Naeem, Producer, Thank You Come Again Productions
"It was an extreme pleasure to have worked with Randi on the feature film project, Locked. Her patience, resourcefulness and dedication brought tremendous energy to the production. Filming could never have been completed on time without Randi's participation. I can't thank her enough.
I look forward to working with Randi again and wish her much luck in future endeavors".

 

Kitt Weagant, President, Command Productions

"Thank you so much for the wonderful rush job in providing a Spanishspeaking female,
Caley Guida, on such short notice. I hope we can work together often! Good luck...
and thanks again".

WORDS FROM PAST JOBS

Corene Mathias, President, Avalon Media

 

"I hired Randi Acton and Break-A-Leg Casting to cast and associate produce, an educational film I produced called
Beyond Awareness to Action: Ending Abuse of Women. Randi displayed exceptional skills at finding exactly the right actor for each of the 18 roles, including Oscar winner Irene Cara donating her services pro bono for the Educational Video" "Randi is truly a one-of-a-kind jewel with a contagious aura that keeps everyone around her positive highly motivated, and having fun doing it.
Her professionalism, creativity, initiative, intelligence,
and managerial skills are exceptional. She would be an asset to any project. I highly recommend her".

 

Juli C. Lasselle, Writer & Director of Locked, Mandorla Pictures LLC

"During the first week of the low budget indie film Locked, our first Assistant Director walked off set. When a crew member recommended Randi Acton, we called her immediately. Her response was instantaneous. She came on board when we were already a day behind, had an unusable schedule and an unstable set".

"She brought us back on schedule so we didn't have to add days. She managed the crew effectively and brought people on as needed in capacities that had been overlooked previously. After Randi came on board, the crew responded to her style and worked efficiently as a team. I would not only recommend her to AD any set, but also look forward to the opportunity to work with her again".

 

Tohid Naeem, Producer, Thank You Come Again Productions
"It was an extreme pleasure to have worked with Randi on the feature film project, Locked. Her patience, resourcefulness and dedication brought tremendous energy to the production. Filming could never have been completed on time without Randi's participation. I can't thank her enough.
I look forward to working with Randi again and wish her much luck in future endeavors".

 

Kitt Weagant, President, Command Productions

"Thank you so much for the wonderful rush job in providing a Spanishspeaking female,
Caley Guida, on such short notice. I hope we can work together often! Good luck...
and thanks again".

WORDS FROM PAST JOBS

Corene Mathias, President, Avalon Media

 

"I hired Randi Acton and Break-A-Leg Casting to cast and associate produce, an educational film I produced called
Beyond Awareness to Action: Ending Abuse of Women. Randi displayed exceptional skills at finding exactly the right actor for each of the 18 roles, including Oscar winner Irene Cara donating her services pro bono for the Educational Video" "Randi is truly a one-of-a-kind jewel with a contagious aura that keeps everyone around her positive highly motivated, and having fun doing it.
Her professionalism, creativity, initiative, intelligence,
and managerial skills are exceptional. She would be an asset to any project. I highly recommend her".

 

Juli C. Lasselle, Writer & Director of Locked, Mandorla Pictures LLC

"During the first week of the low budget indie film Locked, our first Assistant Director walked off set. When a crew member recommended Randi Acton, we called her immediately. Her response was instantaneous. She came on board when we were already a day behind, had an unusable schedule and an unstable set".

"She brought us back on schedule so we didn't have to add days. She managed the crew effectively and brought people on as needed in capacities that had been overlooked previously. After Randi came on board, the crew responded to her style and worked efficiently as a team. I would not only recommend her to AD any set, but also look forward to the opportunity to work with her again".

 

Tohid Naeem, Producer, Thank You Come Again Productions
"It was an extreme pleasure to have worked with Randi on the feature film project, Locked. Her patience, resourcefulness and dedication brought tremendous energy to the production. Filming could never have been completed on time without Randi's participation. I can't thank her enough.
I look forward to working with Randi again and wish her much luck in future endeavors".

 

Kitt Weagant, President, Command Productions

"Thank you so much for the wonderful rush job in providing a Spanishspeaking female,
Caley Guida, on such short notice. I hope we can work together often! Good luck...

Randi Acton continues to refine her production talents in the film industry, while also keeping her in-house file of reliable talent and crew up-to-date. With over 25 years combined talent in acting and production, Randi deftly finds the right talent for on-screen and behind the scenes.

She offers a tenacious attitude to break through unforeseen dilemmas that might crop up.

Need to re-shoot a scene? Randi is on the phone and checking permits. Running short on sound crew? Randi is already making calls. Your talent and crew a little restless? Randi brings calm on and off the set.

How about casting 800 brides a day for two weeks? Randi was hired by Lisa Beasley, and she made it happen for the feature film The Bachelor starring Chris Donnell and Renee Zellweger.

No job is too small or too big....from feature films to indies...corporate videos to live events... documentaries, commercials, and voiceovers.

WORDS FROM PAST JOBS

Corene Mathias, President, Avalon Media

 

"I hired Randi Acton and Break-A-Leg Casting to cast and associate produce, an educational film I produced called
Beyond Awareness to Action: Ending Abuse of Women. Randi displayed exceptional skills at finding exactly the right actor for each of the 18 roles, including Oscar winner Irene Cara donating her services pro bono for the Educational Video" "Randi is truly a one-of-a-kind jewel with a contagious aura that keeps everyone around her positive highly motivated, and having fun doing it.
Her professionalism, creativity, initiative, intelligence,
and managerial skills are exceptional. She would be an asset to any project. I highly recommend her".

 

Juli C. Lasselle, Writer & Director of Locked, Mandorla Pictures LLC

"During the first week of the low budget indie film Locked, our first Assistant Director walked off set. When a crew member recommended Randi Acton, we called her immediately. Her response was instantaneous. She came on board when we were already a day behind, had an unusable schedule and an unstable set".

"She brought us back on schedule so we didn't have to add days. She managed the crew effectively and brought people on as needed in capacities that had been overlooked previously. After Randi came on board, the crew responded to her style and worked efficiently as a team. I would not only recommend her to AD any set, but also look forward to the opportunity to work with her again".

 

Tohid Naeem, Producer, Thank You Come Again Productions
"It was an extreme pleasure to have worked with Randi on the feature film project, Locked. Her patience, resourcefulness and dedication brought tremendous energy to the production. Filming could never have been completed on time without Randi's participation. I can't thank her enough.
I look forward to working with Randi again and wish her much luck in future endeavors".

 

Kitt Weagant, President, Command Productions

"Thank you so much for the wonderful rush job in providing a Spanishspeaking female,
Caley Guida, on such short notice. I hope we can work together often! Good luck...
and thanks again".
