AM Northwest talks 20 years of Oregon casting with Lana Veenker

by admin

On November 7th, Lana dropped in on AM Northwest to chat with Helen Raptis about Cast Iron Studios’ recent anniversary.

As reported by KATU:

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.

Cast Iron Studios Hosts Intimate Welcome Happy Hour

by Cast Iron Studios Staff

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!

John Srednicki, Ranielle Gray, Eryn Goodman and Lana Veenker from Cast Iron Studios

There was much to celebrate, as the local production community here in Portland and surrounding areas has been a hotbed of activity. As KGW recently reported, eight television series recently wrapped filming in the state, including Netflix’s “Trinkets” and  Freeform’s “Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists,” in addition to feature films and stop-motion animation projects, currently on the rise.  Tim Williams, Executive Director of the Oregon Governors Office of Film & Television, quotes an estimated 200 million dollars was spent last year alone. We’re rolling!


Guests of the happy hour with Cast Iron K-9 and fan favorite, Calamity Jane

Special shout out to Wine Bridge Imports for sponsoring the event with these three delicious varieties of wine! @winebridgeimports


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!
