I've been with Big Fish and Melissa for 6 years. I've had an incredible experience working with these guys. They really look out for their actors, and Melissa is a wonderful advocate for her talent. Elyse is also a great agent. She handles Background Extra gigs and is so personable.I lucked out when I signed with this agency (my first agent ever!). They work hard. I don't know what Melissa saw in me when she decided to sign me, but I'm super grateful to know that someone with her amount of experience saw some potential in me.

Melissa at Big Fish is a pro! She's a strong advocate for her talent and for high production standards in the PNW. We can always count on her to respond quickly and efficiently to all casting needs, submitting stellar talent each and every time.

I've worked with Melissa and Big Fish NW Talent a number of times and it is always a pleasure. Whenever I need to cast talent for a project, she's the first person I reach out to.

BFSW was a hidden gem that I'm glad I reached out to a few years back, in this global, digital world of casting, BFSW is a great resource. Always professional, friendly and understands the voices that I'm looking for on my projects.

Melissa works her tail off for her actors—finding and creating opportunities, negotiating the best rates and working conditions, and following up on every detail. Any actor would be fortunate to be represented by her and the Big Fish team. Melissa encourages you to push beyond what you think you’re able to do, and that really pays off. I’ve been with her since 2017, and it has been an amazing ride!
RUN Studios needed 23 actors for a narrative shoot and three scenes involved families with children. Melissa Baldauf supplied us with a large inventory of talent including actual families of actors. We chose 3 families with children ranging in age from 8 to late teens. You can't imagine how smoothly shooting those scenes went as the family chemistry was real and instant. The final scene took place in a bar with 14 actors all of whom were talented and professional. I highly recommend Big Fish NW!

This talent agency was very efficient in helping me get principal cast and background actors for my feature film. I do not think it would be possible to make my movie without the help of Melissa. Extremely grateful!
