User Reviews for Amy Gossels Casting

The best casting director in NYC. Period. I’ve known Amy Gossels for many years; we first met when she came on board to cast my short films while I was at Columbia Graduate school and most recently, she cast my feature “Love Hunter” which was a NY Times Critics Pick and garnered great reviews by every other important critic. What made this film a success were the great actors – and all of them came through Amy’s casting. She reached out to actors who otherwise would never have considered such a small project, but who trusted her judgement completely and embraced the project, despite the micro budget. Amy has an unmatched passion for her work and always exceeds expectations to significantly raise the bar of your project and I’m beyond grateful to have her on my team. If Amy takes on your project, you should consider yourself extremely lucky, as her contribution will be immeasurable.

There are no words that can fully express how grateful I am to Amy Gossels. Amy took on our film “If We Must Die” last fall as a producer and casting director and I was thrilled she was then able to take on my next film “Puppy Love”. I can honestly say these films literally exist thanks to Amy’s incredible work and generosity. In fact, the films doesn’t just exist, they are films we couldn’t be more proud of or excited about. From the very beginning, Amy helped us in such a determined and positive way, championing us and our projects to name actors and generating interest in our film. I still can’t believe how many unbelievable opportunities came our way because of Amy’s passion and commitment. She lined up countless meetings with amazing, well-known actors whom she knows personally, something we could never have even imagined in our wildest dreams. Not only was each actor Amy suggested perfect for the role, she went on to successfully lock in all of our first choices, despite their very complicated film and television schedules and the fact that they command rates that are much higher than we were able to offer. Moreover, every single actor was wonderful to work with, which made everything easy and a joy on set. Amy is remarkable casting director and producer. There’s no question about that. But, she’s so much more. She also became our most trusted collaborator and our essential creative partner in the entire filmmaking process. I cannot imagine moving forward with a film without Amy as an integral part of my team.

Amy Gossels is simply phenomenal. As a casting director, a teacher and a human being. As a talent manager, I know and interact with her regularly in all 3 capacities. As a casting director, her poise and professionalism are legendary and she’s always wonderful to work with. As a human being, her warmth, grace, dedication and integrity are unmatched in this business. And as a teacher, all I can say is WOW. Since the first time I came out to observe one of her workshops, I was blown away by the transformation I saw among the participating actors, even just half way through the first class! The key pointers Amy made had a huge and immediate impact on everyone’s work, and it was such an exciting thing to see. Amy is amazing and her workshop is without a doubt the best I’ve ever encountered. I encourage all my clients to work with her, and those who have find themselves much more comfortable in the audition room and many have gone on to book work because of Amy’s remarkable technique. Her workshops are so beneficial that quite frankly, I think they should be considered required training for any actor who is serious about succeeding in this business.

As a filmmaker and commercial director, with critically acclaimed films at Sundance, I first met Amy 12 years ago, while casting a commercial project I was directing for a major pharmaceutical client. I had never been completely satisfied with what casting directors delivered in the past, and never felt the whole hearted commitment I was hoping for. So, I reached out to Amy after hearing enthusiastic feedback from several colleagues — and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

Amy is the consummate professional with an incredible eye for talent. She has an independent sensibility, so her casting always bring depth, skill and authenticity to the project. She works with not only the most seasoned talent, including well known actors, many of whom she counts among her close friends, but with newcomers as well; Amy’s incredible instincts bring actors from all different backgrounds to the table that not only mesh with your directorial vision but also elevate that vision. She also brings heartfelt integrity and commitment to the entire process, shows tremendous respect and warmth toward actors, and is great to have on your side when making final decisions. I would never trust casting my projects to anyone else.

Amy Gossels is one of my most trusted and respected colleagues. Quite simply, she’s the best in the business. As a producer, there’s no one I’d rather be casting with. With her keen sensibility, creative vision, vibrant energy, steadfast determination and infinite talent and enthusiasm, she has the unique ability to find that needle in the haystack, those rare gems that literally ignite a piece. She’s also remarkably generous and a truly collaborative spirit, which makes working with her an absolute joy. You’ll never find a casting director who cares more about her projects and the people she works with or delivers more spectacular results.

As a filmmaker, I’d been a fan of Amy’s work for many years, and when I finally had the chance to work with her, I couldn’t have been more thrilled. Amy just “gets it”. She’s extremely intuitive and an upbeat, out-of-the-box thinker, who makes her clients’ needs her number one priority. No matter what the challenge, she always delivers more than you even hope for. It’s a wonderful feeling to be in her uniquely capable hands and she will always be my “go to” casting director.

I’ve yet to come across a person as dedicated to her work as Amy is. It is her passion and her joy. It shows in every decision she makes, every endeavor she undertakes, every person she comes across. Amy’s knowledge, experience and support is unparalleled and she shares all of it so freely. Consider yourself very fortunate if you have the opportunity to work with her. Her projects are flawless and she’s the loveliest person ever to work with!

Taking Amy Gossels’ workshop is like being given a definitive roadmap to a successful acting career. She not only instructs, she inspires and empowers. Her workshop gave me the confidence and ability to approach auditions like a pro and the insight, advice and tips she shared about the business had immediate results, and led me to land my first principal role in a global commercial 3 weeks later and a national spot shortly after! I can’t thank Amy enough for helping me kick off my career in NYC!

Amy Gossels is the real deal. I just took her on-camera workshop and let me just say, it was worth every penny. Her training is totally result oriented and I got so much practical information, critical information I hadn’t heard from other instructors in any of my previous classes. I just wish it hadn’t taken me so long to find Amy and her workshop and information of this quality that’s so useful! Her workshop is a MUST.

Thanks for having me in your awesome workshop series, Amy!! I learned so much and can’t wait to work with you again soon! Your direction on the fly is so awesome and insightful. AND I just got a meeting Tuesday with the agent you brought in last night! Thanks for ALL you do for us actors. YOU ROCK.
