Casting Principal Actors for Film & Television
Vicky Johnston – Freelance Casting Director
Freelance Casting Director Vicky Johnston finds Utah’s most talented and professional performers on time and on budget and offers a personalized service that takes care of all your casting needs.
Talent is sourced through local talent agencies and unrepresented talent on file. I have been involved in the film industry since a teenager (back in the 80′s) in New Zealand. I started as an actor with small speaking roles on Betty’s Bunch, Crimewatch and Shortland Street. Since then, I have been heavily involved in the Utah film market training talent and as crew directing, producing and began casting in 2009 for locally made feature films, shorts and web videos in Utah USA. Casting is my personal love and I take great pride and joy in being part of a well cast film. I provide a dedicated, professional and well orchestrated casting service for my clients.
Comments from past clients:
Vicky is an extraordinary Casting Director. She has a keen eye for talent and has excellent resources. She picks out the best in people and brings it to light in the best possible manner. Vicky is intuitive and very realistic. I utterly enjoyed working with Vicky. Our film would have never been possible without her. Thank you Vicky.
Jorge Quinones – Director | All Mine
Vicky Johnston was a vital asset as my Casting Director for “Scavenger Hunt”. Her dedication and professionalism are second to none. I gave her the task of casting 8-10 children in starring roles, not an easy task. But Vicky provided us with a large number of willing hopefuls. Her networking skills allow her to be in touch with the filmmaking process and provide thoughtful and creative input regarding casting choices. I would not hesitate to use Vicky at any time, and will be using her again soon.
Steve Gehrke – Director | Scavenger Hunt
I contacted Vicky Johnston with Utah Casting to cast 2 parts in a short feature I produced. She was very easy to work with. Also having the actors I was looking for. Joseph Batzel by anyones standards is a professional and Andrew Numbers, for a young student was great. Both rose to the challenge. Working with Vicky was a great experience. Thanks for your help. Certainly I will call again when I need help again.
