About Mathew

My Work Ethic

Welcome To

Mathew Waters Casting

Meeting all of your casting requirements in a friendly & professional manner.

With more than 20-years in the business, I have always believed that courtesy and professionalism are key, I totally believe there is such a thing as “friends in business”, after all, who wants to work with someone they don’t like?

Courtesy, respect and professionalism are more than just  catchphrases, they are fundamental to my business. My career in casting began back in 2011 in the UK. Initially as a  freelance Casting Assistant work on several commercials, then a Casting Assistant and Casting Associate  on a number of television shows and films including a tenure at the BBC working on Casualty amongst other things.

Since returning to Australia I have worked as a Casting Associate & Assistant on approximately 100  commercials and was the Casting Director on ‘Christmas Down Under’
