Scouts – Skills for life: Ted’s story

“Nikki you made what seemed a pretty impossible project actually happen. Despite the short timescale and with very difficult items to source your team handled every aspect professionally, calmly and on budget. Nothing was too much of an ask and all the hard work and dedication to getting the job done truly showed. You made the whole experience truly enjoyable and stress-free. Can’t wait to work with you in the future.”

Kate Phillips

Senior Creative, Innocent

“Nikki, not only delivered a breadth of incredible talent, she was also instrumental in coaxing great performances during the auditions. With Nikki helming our casting we got exactly what we wanted and needed all under the most pressured schedule.”

Waiel Al-Nour, Director ‘GIFT OF LIFE’, Channel 5/5Creative

“We worked with Nikki on the Football Manager advertising from 2012-14. Her casting was spot on and, thanks to her meticulous pre-production planning, every shoot proved a great success”

“I have worked with Nikki for 2 years now and quite simply, if I have a shoot that involves any kind of production, the first person I call is Nikki. Working with Nikki means I don’t have to worry about what she is doing, or look over her shoulder as I know she will ensure she completely understands the job and the purpose of the shoot. She is highly creative and experienced and will bring things to my attention that I may have missed, and at the same time is extremely collaborative, there is no ‘big ego’ to have to deal with. She creates a strong sense of team and family on shoots and all my technical crew love her. In short, creative, meticulous, extremely hard working and a pleasure to have around.” Ranald Mackechnie

“Early in 2015 I had a little shoot to do for a client new to film. All the usual attendant issues. Wanted Spielberg production values for a can’o’spam budget. Nikki rallied. We had fantastic talent. Fantastic crew. And made the whole thing work.   The next issue was that the client went off the actress he chose so we had recast and reshoot her part and then edit the new actress seamlessly in to the first shoot material. No easy feat on a shoe-string. Again Nikki rallied, and we won the day.  In film it isn’t whether challenges are going to crop up, it’s when.  When they do, that’s when you find out whether you’re really cut out for the business. Anyone can breeze through a simple shoot with loads of money and a fair wind. Nikki is one of those consummate professionals that’s good when it really counts. When the sh*t hits the fan. That’s worth its weight in budgetBetween you and me, she’s quite literally an arse saver.  So the real question is, can you afford not to hire her?”

“Nikki has been casting and producing for us for many years and she is now an extension of our team. She has the same attention to detail that I pride ourselves on and I wouldn’t dream of using anyone else. No detail is overlooked and often flagging up things that we didn’t think of at the time, she is worth every single penny. If I asked her to find me a talking dog she would find it, and it would probably be able to play drums too! My work is made so much simpler knowing that every detail will be taken care of by Nikki, allowing me to focus on what I need to be doing. Her years of experience really shine when things get tricky, always producing a solution with a smile. Nikki is a a real asset and a pleasure to work with!” Darren Mostyn

“Nikki Meadows Casting were a joy to work with. We had a challenging brief with a tight schedule and modest budget, but Nikki surpassed all of our expectations. She was collaborative and imaginative throughout the process, presenting some fantastic casting choices which helped us find an adorable, bright and funny 3 year old star-in-the-making for our commercial.”

Andrew William, Creative Director Vamanos – Paddy’s Bathroom TVC

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Nikki in her roles as both Producer and Casting Director for several years. I have always found Nikki to be extremely organised, highly efficient and on top of her game and I am always taken with the regularity with which so many of my clients comment on what a great job she has done. I can recommend Nikki without hesitation – she would be a huge asset to any production.”
