About Us & Awards

Here is what some of our clients have to say about our work:

"Angela, you are awesome. I loved working with you and I tell everyone who will listen if they head to your part of the world they need to hire you. Your work on this film is demonstrable and felt throughout. You added color and character and authenticity, sometimes even all three in one person! Thank you for your tireless work." - Ben Younger, Director of Bleed for This

"Given a choice between shooting a movie in Boston or an anonymous back lot, David O. Russell says the decision is simple: He’ll pick the Hub. There are many reasons Russell enjoys working in Boston, and local casting director Angela Peri is one of them. “I love her. I can get whatever I need,” he says. "- Boston Globe (06.23.13)

"Angela and Lisa, I wanted to write to say thanks for another great year for our German TV movie project, Katie Fforde Presents. I know that Boston Casting does some really BIG productions … but I always felt like we were getting the same great service the big productions are getting." - Paul Van Wormer
