Succession
I cast so many actors who do not reside in the states, I use Spotlight for all projects we work on. It's the easiest and most effective way to find talent abroad. It is great, easy and wonderfully effective.

Spotlight is the go-to and it’s really important for actors to have showreels on their Spotlight page.
Rachel Sheridan, CDG Casting Director

We use Spotlight as a searchable tool - we go through things like base, skills, languages - languages we’re doing a lot of that at the moment. We use it to just absorb information.
