Chicken and Chips Casting are a one-stop shop, full service, boots on the ground Casting team. We pump great Aussie talent into inspired TV, Film, Commercial and Online projects. We work with some of the world’s leading directors, Australia’s best advertising agencies and production companies and our credits span across all formats of entertainment. 

We’re most proud of the work we’ve done for local TV and Film projects, many of which are now airing across the US and the globe.

C&C HQ is based in our light-filled, beachside studio in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney, with a wall mural we are particularly proud of! With studio spaces that span across the East Coast of Australia, we cast all formats of projects between Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Our credits list also boasts a knack for street casting talent Australia wide.

Casting directors Alison Fowler and Stephanie Pringle won B&T’s 30 under 30 Award in 2018 and lead a talented team that boast skills in improvisation, acting, directing, producing and editing.

Our passion lies in becoming the most innovative and collaborative casting directors. We pride ourselves on having a nurturing and welcoming casting studio and believe this contributes to delivering the best performances. 

In 2018, Chicken and Chips Casting became the first Australian Casting Office to implement a paperless check in system - goodbye pesky paper wardrobe forms, hello streamlined digital session logs.

We are also proud advocates for diversity, inclusion and representation in casting and currently strive to be Australia’s most inclusive casting directors, constantly collaborating and aligning ourselves with other game-changers.

Chicken and Chips are currently developing a number of Film and TV projects with production slated for 2019 and 2020.

Al is an ex-advertising suit, and is immensely familiar with the advertising world and #agencylife. Whilst it turns out advertising wasn’t her jam, her passion for casting originated from earlier years in front of the camera as an actress.

Now, as one of Australia’s emerging casting directors, Al gets a kick out of discovering & casting unsurfaced talent.

Launching Chicken and Chips became her platform for advocating for change and diversification within the casting industry and for future female entrepreneurs. So much so she now proudly displays her 2018 B&T 30 Under 30 Award for the Entrepreneur category at CnC HQ.

Mother to 4 month old daughter, Riley, she also hopes to be an advocate for the working mum juggle. It's the ultimate enjoyable struggle!
