"We gave Talented People a brief for a Series P/D role and they went straight to work and came back quickly with great options, which demonstrated that they understood the needs of the series and what the Commissioning Editor was looking for. It was a pleasure working with them both."
Head of Production, MiddleChild
"Kimberly and Rosie helped us find an SP for a tricky doc series. They did an incredibly thorough job in a very short space of time and were hugely helpful and communicative. I wouldn’t hesitate to use their services again."
Managing Director, Hello Halo
"Crewing up for observational series - and saved an inordinate amount of time by asking Talented People to get involved. Had a list of possibles the next day - all available and primed about the series, but they were also able to outline what each person would bring to the production. I took two of their suggestions, neither of whom I’d have found otherwise - and they’ve been brilliant. So fast, expert service from Talented People - very impressed - many thanks!!"
