Jen Halpern has worked as casting director in New York City for the past twenty years. Her company primarily casts professional talent and real people for on-camera commercials, television, and branded content videos.
Jen also has a production background in film and television and worked for several years as a freelance 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". - Jen
As someone who enjoys working with actors, Jen also teaches commercial audition techniques and scene study to adults and kids. She also offers headshot sessions. Jen works with each client personally to get them the right looks they need as a professional actor.
When Jen isn't casting, she is running her non-profit animal charity, Pillows for Paws, whose mission it is to bring comfort and love to shelter animals while they are waiting for their forever homes.
