Diane Vanaria is the hardest working, kindest and most dedicated "real people" casting director that I have ever had the pleasure to work with. From the minute the job is even considered Diane and her team begin crafting the very best plan to make it a success. Diane wants first and foremost for the client to find a match with all the people she can find, but what sets Diane apart is her care and considerate acts of kindness to each person that she talks to, that walks thru the door from start to finish. Very simply Diane cares and when you have her or anyone on her team around, you feel a sense of comfort and detail that leads to great results. I can highly recommend Diane Vanaria for casting, she is aces in my book.
I love working with Diane. She comes up with the most unusual ways to find the real people talent we are looking for. Great results.
Diane Vanaria has the very special ability to find talent that embodies the spirit of the narrative for the project at hand. Diane has great personal energy and is very grounded which allows her to connect and read people as well as reliably predict the ones that have that special on-camera magic. I’ve worked with Diane and her team for a very long time and I have never had a subject that could not deliver on set. Diane goes beyond just finding the look of the person. She and her team find the person that meets the client's demographic AND is the complete package. The talent can always emote, follow direction, and is comfortable with the process of being on set. I cannot recommend Diane Vanaria Casting enough!
