Suzie Steen – Director

Suzie has been in the Entertainment business most of her life in front of and behind the camera. Her business acumen was formed when she was recruited out of business school to move from her humble Mid-west beginning to Washington, DC to become one of the first female White House interns.

Longing for the ocean, she moved to Los Angeles. Starting as a model (business woman on the side), she was spotted by Columbia pictures….and the rest is history – NO – She was offered a 7-year contract at Universal Studios and she ran for the hills and behind the camera. This was a free spirit not to be tied down by contracts. (Oh the hindsight of it all.)

When Suzie came to Australia, she started as a Voice artist (and worked behind the scenes in films, print, TVCs, with some guest appearances in TV Series and films), she began teaching acting. Her students insisted she set up her own talent Agency. She said “No” to that 17 years ago and since then has been nurturing and casting talent with professionalism & passion.

Jackie Steen – Casting Associate/Social Media

Jackie has been in the entertainment industry since a very young age. She modelled, acted in TVCs, Television Series and had a Guest Role in “Star Wars” Revenge of the Sith. She has worked behind the camera as well and is very knowledgeable in the industry.

Jackie turned her education to fashion design, and after working in the corporate world for several years as a Senior Fashion Designer, she now owns her own label “Cali Rose Creations”.
