Working with Etch for the Guardian’s commercial casting projects was an efficient and professional process from concept to execution. They understood the brief and were flexible with budgets and time constraints. The range of actors provided was diverse and perfect for the campaign we commissioned them for. The quality of actors delivered was of a high standard and I am looking forward to working with them again in the future.
