Steve is not only respectful and kind with all the actors, he is great with producers as well as clients. He brings in great talent and will bend over backward to make sure the casting goes smoothly.”

Whatever the project may be, his approach to casting is to first understand the needs of his client and secondly to draw without limitation from where he must to find the right talent. Stephen Salamunovich is a true professional.”

“Not only is Stephen Salamunovich the best and most experienced casting director in the Northwest, he’s also adept in the Hollywood mainstream from where he cut his teeth. He’s a pleasure to work with and a true professional on every level. I recommend his without reservation for feature films, television, commercials and corporate work. If you’re casting anything in the Pacific Northwest, Stephen is the man to call.”

– Lenville O’Donnell, Executive Producer, “Crimes of the Past”


“Stephen has cast several projects that I have written/directed. It is my privilege to work with him again and again for three three reasons; First, casting is 90% of performance and Stephen’s taste is impeccable. He supports my vision but is not afraid to push back and is usually right. It’s his goal to make me look like a genius. Second, he’s not afraid to go after anyone regardless of budget. He believes in material and will approach anyone with any offer if it can be justified by its quality. He is fearless in this regard. 
Finally, he’s the perfect gentleman. In a business where most people ‘don’t get the part’ and are often disrespected, he treats everyone with equal respect and sensitivity. This is HUGE to me because it’s a reflection on my priorities, project and reputation. I cannot recommend him highly enough!”     

– Rick Stevenson, Writer-Director


“I’m a great admirer of the many independent film projects that have benefited from Steve’s artful eye and I’ve been lucky to have that same deft touch brought to my commercial projects. We’re extremely lucky to have a resource of his caliber in the Pacific Northwest!”

– Steve Utaski, Director, Silo Films


“Throughout my career, Stephen has helped me cast a wide range of projects from small low budget independent shorts to large scale, national commercials. His knowledge and familiarity with the local actors, agents and unions has always been a great asset. In addition to all of this, he is very easy to work with and is also a heck of a nice guy.”

– Paul Breslin, Producer
