Tina Kerr, Owner/Casting Director
Tina
Tina Kerr began her career in casting as a result of her involvement in the late 80's/early 90's Seattle music scene. While hanging out with some musician friends at a party for the film "Singles", she met some great production crew who jump-started her interest in making movies. It all started in 1992 while Seattle was the "it" place for filming, allowing Tina to handle Extras Casting for over (30) projects in the Pacific Northwest before broadening her horizons.At the time, there were very few extras casting companies in remote cities/states, so On Location Casting was created to provide professional casting services "on location" wherever there was a need.

Los Angeles also quickly became a very busy market for Tina's type of hands-on creativity and casting skills.

Although her first career choice was accounting, Tina feels that she was chosen to work in casting for many reasons – her organizational skills, her natural instincts to see the right person for every role, her ability to interact with all types of people from various economic/social/ethnic backgrounds, her fearlessness to take on projects that most people find impossible and the ability to rise to the challenges that filmmaking presents.

"I am a military brat and have lived all over the country. Traveling and always being the 'new kid' in class helped me to hone my ability to walk in to a room or situation, immediately assess the environment and make the most of it. Like an actor, I have learned to be a chameleon and play various roles. I use that in my approach to casting and working with talent. Some of my favorite moments are bringing the movies to people who wouldn't normally have the opportunity to see a film or television show being made and watching the joy they get from their experiences. I have met so many amazing people during my career and have grown so much from the opportunities that casting has provided."

A few more interesting tidbits from Tina:
- Most people would say I'm a workaholic and I'd probably have to agree
- I have an annoying habit of hearing a word or phrase and immediately finding a song lyric that it belongs in
- I love animals of all kinds and have been a vegetarian for over six years
- favorite sports team is the San Antonio Spurs
- yes, I WAS named after the character 'Ginger' (Tina Louise) on "Gilligan's Island"

Some causes that Tina supports and believes strongly in include the ASPCA, The Humane Society, Earthwatch.org, The Leatherback Trust, Sea Turtle Restoration Project, Ocean Conservancy, American Diabetes Association and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Tina is a member of Austin Film Society, Women in Film Dallas, Texas Motion Picture Alliance (TXMPA), Reel Women, Women in Film New Mexico and Women in Film Las Vegas.
