Casting directors Lesley Freedman (left) and Dawn Mjoen
Voiceover casting director Dawn Mjoen has rejoined McHale Barone, a leading creative radio/commercial music production company. Mjoen will collaborate with long-time McBone casting pro Lesley Freedman on the shops’ expanding workload.
“Casting is an integral part of every production, and both Dawn and Lesley have the knack of keeping a fresh perspective on every actor they audition,” said company co-principal Joe Barone. “It’s not as easy as it seems when you have to listen to the same script over and over all day long. We’re extremely happy to have Dawn back full time.”
“Voiceover talent is a significant issue for ad agencies,” Chris McHale adds. “The casting process requires patience, sensitivity and an incredible memory. Both Dawn and Lesley are blessed with playful, creative spirits. Their occasionally unorthodox recommendations are almost always on target.”
Founded in 1993, McHale Barone clients include AOL, Budweiser, Cingular, Delta Airlines, DirecTV, FedEx, JP Morgan Chase, McDonald’s, Mercedes, Heineken, Pizza Hut, Snickers and Volvo. Their radio creative has won The Radio Mercury Grand Prize and numerous Clio’s, One Show and London International Advertising Awards.
