Jennifer Peralta-Ajemian (Owner/Casting Director). Hi, I’m JPA. I don’t believe in luck, but hard work. As a professionally trained ballet dancer, I know what artists need to give their best performance. Having been trained by legendary coach Maggie Black, directing talent became a passion of mine. After graduating from Marymount Manhattan College with a B.A. in Dance and a Minor in Journalism, I transitioned into the agency and casting worlds. From 2004-2010, I cut my teeth assisting talent agents Jerry Hogan and George Lutsch, followed by casting directors Avy Kaufman, Bernard Telsey, Cindy Tolan, and Liz Lewis. I learned an immense amount on how to find various character types for film, theater, commercials, and voiceovers. After a two-year collaboration with casting director Robin Carus, it was time to take my leadership skills to the next level.
In 2014, I opened my own shop for film, television, and animation. Our work has premiered at various festivals including the Atlanta Film Festival, SXSW, Tribeca, and Slamdance. Outside of casting, I like to educate. I conduct a variety of programs that provide private & group coaching to actors, and a breakdown of the casting process to the next generation of directors and producers. Being a Jury Member is always fun too. I’ve judged the Socially Relevant and Burbank International Film Festivals, and look forward to collaborating with other festivals and platforms to discover, develop and acknowledge outstanding artists and work.
