“I HATE TO SEE MYSELF ON CAMERA” is a sentiment universally expressed by everyone I meet when I tell them what I do. And yet, a video footprint is now essential for everyone, but especially those in the business world, in any field.
My name is Cathy Reinking and I’ve had the great privilege of working with actors for most of my life as a Casting Director. I’ve spent 24 years in the casting trenches (two Emmy-winning shows, Manager of Casting at NBC, and much more) and learned so much about what makes us attracted to others. What is it about certain people that makes us want to listen and watch? To be emotionally moved to take action? To become connected?
I help people reveal more of their natural charisma. A byproduct of this is that it can make you a happier, more productive, more sympathetic person.
