monate (adj.), definition:

a feeling of pure bliss and satisfaction – when you get that monate feeling, all is well within your soul and you know that everything is going to be alright.

At Monate Casting Directors & Services, leading our clients on a Monate experience is our mission.
Our aim is for directors to proclaim 

“eish, go monate man!”

whilst watching casting tapes that we have put together for them.

singobani (about us)

Monate Casting Directors & Services are Talent Loving Casting Directors with studios in Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa. We cast talent for film, television, commercials, theatre and corporate projects for the local and international markets.

We pride ourselves in providing our clients with effortless casting and options who are just right. Our process is simple, yet effective: we do not rest until we have brought a project to life with the perfect talent. This is done through traditional studio casting, and where needed, street-casting journeys into retirement villages, high schools, township & community theatre groups and beyond. We aim to grow with each project we undertake, ensuring that our knowledge base widens in our efforts to become the most resourceful casting directors in the country.

Monate Casting Directors are 100% black owned and boast level 1 BEE contribution status. 

But we’re not just about scorecards – our team cover an array of skill sets with years of industry experience, meaning we’ll provide a tailored approach to execute your project requirements. Need us to cast an MNet telenovela? Theta nathi! Or maybe you’re in production on a KykNet drama? Geen probleem!

So, if you’re looking for the perfect one-stop casting solution, pop us a mail or give us a call and we’ll work out the perfect way to breathe life into your project. Speak to us, no job is too big or budget too small – we’re all about the creative process and can’t wait to read your script and/or treatment.

please note

Monate Casting Directors does not own or operate an agency – if you are a professional and trained actor looking for representation, please look at agencies who are members of The PMA (mostly Johannesburg) or SAPAMA (mostly Cape Town). For model agencies, visit NAMA for a countrywide list. We advise all those looking for representation to do their research and meet with at least two – three agents before making an informed decision! And remember, no reputable agency will charge a “registration fee” nor will they promise to get you onto TV; agents can only get you in the door for auditions and castings, it is up to you to work on your craft in order to book work!
