    we are working on a large project for the middle east for which we would need a casting of arab-type children…. we are looking for a back up location that is not in the middle east itself, in case of escalation of the situation…. any suggestions welcome! (casting should include five principals, 10-15 featured extras, and 20 – 30 extras). thanks,

    Dear Helen,
    Casting of Arab looking people / children is possible in Turkey and also the location. It will be great if you can give more information and I can be more helpful. You can check our web site for the different selection of location in the previous commercials or I can send you some pictures upon your brief. Best is to do the casting at the location of the shooting (more to the southern east of Turkey). Please do not hesitate to contact me for more info. Gulin Ustun / Atlantik Film + 90 212 278 36 11

    Hi Helen,

    Razor Sharp Films is a Cape Town based production company facilitating jobs shooting on the Southern African continent. We have all relevant locations you are looking for available in the area we facilitate in. We have an extended database and if necesary I will be able to forward you some reference pictures.

    There are a lot of Arab and Middle East looking cast available in South Africa and we have our own in house casting director who has cast for the Middle East before, so we would be able to do a small presentation for you already at this stage to show what is available.

    Hello Helen
    We are based in the UAE, far from the hazards. Casting is not in problem in here as we have to cast for our own commercials whicg are mostly in Arabic featuring Arabic chldren and adults. The back up location is the big question, what exactly do you need?Please feel free to have a look at our website and judge for

    Hi Helen,
    Come to Tunisia in north afirca, there will be no problem with the casting, and there’s many locations that looks like east or middle east arab coutries.
    the country is calm and there is no risk here for a foreign crew.
    feel free to contact us.
