Why we are pro-diversity
We believe true talent is equally distributed, yet the opportunity is not. It’s crucial for the longevity of our industry to encourage diversity in front and behind the camera. SHOTZ takes measures in all departments and divisions, eagerly contributing to a more inclusive and open industry.
In front of the camera
We aim to achieve this by providing a truly diverse and inclusive casting service at SHOTZ Casting. We leave no stone unturned in our quest to find talents from all demographic and socioeconomic backgrounds. Each encounter with a casting applicant during one of our castings helps us better understand how to approach diversity – may it be in terms of developing roles and characters, writing casting briefs, or connecting with talent agencies that share a similar spirit.
Behind the camera
When building our teams, we focus on a good balance of highly skilled crew members with a wide range of backgrounds. Based in Berlin, a melting pot of social backgrounds, we strive to work with people from all over the world on every project. We endeavor to work with a balanced ratio between genders, we regularly train interns to become integral parts of the film industry, and age for us is just a number.
For the future
A more open and diverse approach to filmmaking is beneficial for everybody involved. It helps tell stories, shows perspectives unseen by the many, and empowers the few to raise their voices, bringing equality to all. Let’s strive for a more open and diverse film industry together!
