Jason Coviello - Casting Director
Jason has been an actor/photographer for the past 18 years. When not in front of the camera bringing someones creative vision to life as an actor, he's behind the camera as a photographer, helping to bring a persons true self to life to be captured, cherished and shared. Jason has acted in over 200 projects (film, television & commercials) and has photographed over 200 actors head-shots. "I love the creative process of story telling; weather stepping into character and acting it out, or stepping behind the camera to capture the true essence of a person... and tell their story with a single image." More can be found on Jason at JC Artistry.
