Our experienced team will work closely with you to understand your vision and identify the right talent to bring it to life. Contact us to find out more about how we can help with your casting needs.

  1. Consultation: We begin by consulting with the client to determine the needs of the project, including details such as the roles required, shooting schedule, budget and any special requirements.
  2. Casting Plan: Based on the client’s requirements, we create a casting plan that outlines the talent required, the anticipated casting schedule and the casting methods to be used.
  3. Talent Selection: Using our network of talent agencies and other sources, we identify potential candidates for the roles and present them to the client for review. We work closely with the client to ensure that the talent selected fits their vision for the project.
  4. Auditions and callbacks: Once potential candidates have been selected, we organise auditions and callbacks as required, either in person or remotely.
  5. Final selection and negotiation: Following the auditions and callbacks, the client selects the final talent for the project. We then negotiate contract terms with the talent and finalise the casting process.

Throughout the process, we work closely with the client to ensure that their needs are met and that the casting process runs smoothly. Contact us to find out more about our casting services and how we can help with your project.

Talents’ Spoken Language(s)

Talents’ language proficiencies for English varies. The following is approximate distributions (not scientific). 

  1. Elementary – 50% – Many Japanese people do not speak English at all.
  2. Limited – 30% – Some Japanese people have a basic understanding of English.
  3. Business – 15% – A significant number of Japanese people have at least a working knowledge of English and can use it in a business setting, particularly in urban areas.
  4. Full Professional – 4% – Fluent English speakers are relatively rare in the general population, and are typically limited to specific industries or professions.
  5. Native – 1% – nglish speakers who were raised speaking the language as a first language are a very small minority in Japan.

If high-level language skills are your priority, your chances of finding better talent locally will be limited. On the other hand, projects such as the ones below can make good use of DFS’s local casting service.

  • Music videos
  • Non-English speaking roles in films and commercials
  • Projects that don’t require English dialogue

The DFS casting director/fixer can act as an interpreter during the production if required.
