THE EYE CASTING

LAUNCHED THE SUMMER OF 2006 IN LONDON’S EAST END, THE EYE CASTING CAME TO FRUITION WHEN FOUNDER JODY FURLONG SAW THE NEED FOR A CASTING COMPANY WITH A SHARPER VISION, CLEARER UNDERSTANDING OF ADVERTISING AND NO FEAR OF GETTING ITS HANDS DIRTY.

WITHIN TWO WEEKS THE EYE WAS CASTING A MAJOR CAMPAIGN FOR NOKIA WITH RANKIN. THEY HAVEN'T STOPPED SINCE! WORKING WITH  MANY OF BIGGEST BRANDS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS IN THE INDUSTRY, THEY HAVE CAST SOME OF THE MOST RECOGNISABLE ADVERTISING CAMPAIGNS AROUND, INCLUDING - LOUIS VUITTON, PRIMARK, MOLTON BROWN, SAMSUNG, FURLA, JIGSAW, JD SPORT, NATWEST, ZALANDO, DOVE, SAINSBURYS, DIAGIO, UNIQLO, BENETTON, JOHNNIE WALKER AND MANY MORE.

BUILDING ON THE STREET CAST TALENT DISCOVERED BY THE EYE, JODY’S TWIN BROTHER BAYO CAME ON BOARD IN 2007 TO RUN THE EYE AGENCY AND REPRESENT A DIVERSE RANGE OF THE HIPPEST STREETCAST TALENT AROUND. EXCLUSIVE TO THE EYE THESE INDIVIDUAL AND EYE-CATCHING MODELS, PERSONIFY LONDON AT ITS COOLEST.
