Diversity Casting, formerly known as International Talent Casting, was started over fifteen years ago – and primarily specialized in foreign-language and ethnic casting. During the dot.com surge, many projects were being localized, so ITC also began providing consulting and producing services. Over the years, we have grown to provide mainstream casting for feature films and television while still maintaining our strengths in diversity casting – as well as producing and directing voice-over projects. In 2010, we changed our company name to Diversity Casting – to truly reflect the contemporary nature of our industry.
We are always ready to exhaust resources to find the best talent for each and every project – as a partner in the creative process. We offer local casting, as well casting in other markets – both nationally and internationally.
