Mad Dog Casting is a leading UK casting agency for film extras, television extras and commercial extras. The company takes pride in finding the best faces for every character on every job, be it a Hollywood blockbuster, TV series or a new commercial or advertising campaign. We also supply extras for art films, music videos and corporate videos as well as gaming and stills photography. Mad Dog has offices in London and in Cardiff.
Mad Dog was established in 1999, and is known for finding hard to find people and for taking the stress out of sourcing and co-ordinating supporting artists whether it is a crowd of 1000 on the streets of London, 300 Chinese people in Cardiff, or a 30 strong Russian male choir. Recent briefs our team have fulfilled include a group of expert kite flyers, a foot double for a Hollywood star and a man who could dislocate his shoulder! Mad Dog pays attention to detail and prioritises the authenticity that is important to production companies and assistant directors.
Many of the Mad Dog team has recent production experience which means that they understand the pressures the people Mad Dog work with are under. Mad Dog's philosophy is one of “no problem” which is why Mad Dog has worked on some of the biggest films, and best loved TV series and commercials made in the UK over the past decade.
Mad Dog aim to work with and represent only the best, most reliable supporting artists around the UK. Previous work includes Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Prince of Persia, Sherlock Holmes, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Snow White and the Huntsman, Hugo Eastenders, Inbetweeners, and Skyfall. Mad Dog worked on many of the Olympic ad campaigns during 2012 and television credits include Broadchurch, Stella, Being Human, Dr. Who and the soon to come out Da Vincis Demons.
