Testimonials

“Not only did Debra come through with great casting recommendations, meticulous organizing, and thorough preparation; she delivered. And every one of Debra’s actors listened, took direction, and were willing to give whatever I asked of them take after take. And to top it off, Debra not only helped me get all the scenes in the can, but she also delivered as an actor in the last scene in my film “Not the One” and she nailed it. They don’t come much better in Boston.”
