Portland’s own Lana Veenker is celebrating 20 years as a casting director! In that time, she’s made a name for herself both here and abroad — having just returned from the Rome Film Festival where she rubbed elbows with Italian film royalty. Lana joined us to look back at the last 20 years of film and TV productions in Oregon. For more information about Lana Veenker, check her out on IMDb.
Many thanks to the team at AM Northwest for helping us celebrate this milestone! We’re so grateful for our community.

Kicking off the summer season with new connections and old friends
Cast Iron Studios hosted an intimate happy hour this week, celebrating a few new members of the Oregon Media and Production Association. This select group was joined by the Cast Iron team, along with a handful of studio friends, to connect, discuss the latest up-and-coming production buzz, and enjoy some delicious bites and bevs!
Thanks to everyone who joined in on the fun and conversation. Cheers to a new season with plenty of exciting, fresh projects barrelling down, or shall we say ‘shooting’ down the local production pipeline!
When you tune in for the Season 4 premiere of “The Librarians” on TNT at 8PM (check local listings), don’t change the channel! Another all-new episode follows, featuring these talented Pacific Northwest actors at 9PM.
SEEKING: An awesome couple in their late 20s or early 30s living in and enjoying the Portland community.*
The commercial will be documentary-style, following the couple in their house, out and about in town at their favorite hangouts, or on nature adventures with them. Couple should be interested in sharing their lives, their home, their interests, their hobbies, and their favorite places to be in and around Portland.
*No visible tattoos, please. If they can be easily covered up, that’s OK!
