When Jen isn't casting, she is running her non-profit animal charity,
Pillows for Paws, whose mission it is to donate beds, toys & treats to
NYC shelter animals while they are waiting for their forever homes.
Jen Halpern has worked as a casting director in NYC for the past twenty years. Her company primarily casts professional talent and real people for on-camera commercials, television, and branded content videos. Jen has a production background in film and television and worked for several years as a production manager and line producer.
Her unique perspective serves her well since she not only understands the casting needs of a director, ad agency or production company, but also those of budget and schedule.
"I have always loved the creative process of working with clients and connecting them with the talent they need. It is exciting to be a part of the beginning stages of a project and help bring the roles a director envisions to life. Working with actors everyday is a huge plus. The talent and dedication most bring to their auditions is inspiring".
As someone who enjoys working with actors, Jen also teaches commercial audition techniques and scene study to adults and kids. She is also a photographer, and offers Headshot sessions at an affordable price.
