Casting directors Carla Hool, Mercedes Gironella & Luis Gimeno were on hand to help rollout Casting Workbook’s massive Spanish platform, while news of an exclusive global breakdown from a major studio network was also announced.
(Los Angeles, CA) July 27, 2021 – Casting Workbook announced today the success of reaching another strategic milestone as the company celebrated further expansion into 12 countries, with Spanish-speaking talent agents now on board from Spain, Latin & South America and Mexico. As the company charts new ground for Spanish-speaking talent where no other enterprise casting services company has been before, they are continuing to lay the foundation towards the goal of being the most expansive and complete casting service in the world.
Recently, Casting Workbook hosted a private invitation-only virtual summit bringing together some of the biggest Spanish-talent agents in the world. Over the 60-minute summit, the audience was able to connect directly with 3 of the top Spanish Casting Directors from Mexico, Spain and the US (Los Angeles). Further, a massive studio project was announced to the agents with an open breakdown looking for top Spanish-speaking talent from a major global media company to be posted exclusively on Casting Workbook.
The announcement today comes on the heels of more than 3 years of careful planning as the company’s global expansion efforts to support Spanish-speaking talent continues to thrive. Earlier this year, Casting Workbook Español was announced with more than 450,000 Spanish-speaking actors & talent joining the Casting Workbook global network as the company acquired the Madrid-based talent network Vibuk.
