As far back as he can remember, Guy William Gane III always wanted to be a Civil War soldier in the movies.
Guy has gravitated toward the American Civil War since early childhood. In 1989, he joined a Reenactment unit local to Western New York, and eventually participated as a soldier in 1997. In 1999, he was asked to join the Reenactor cast for a small film, and that’s where he caught the film-bug.
In 2006, Guy was asked to help build up the Background Soldiers while in mid-production of a Civil War project to great success.
In 2007, Guy dreamed of building up a Consulting & Casting company where he can utilize the finest Reenactors for film, TV, and other media, as well as train Local Talent in the art of combat for the era the current project is taking place.
In 2013, he got the chance to make that dream come true, first with “Field of Lost Shoes”, and immediately following, with an episode of “House of Cards”
The phone began to consistently ring in 2014, and Old Timey Casting was born.
“My dream for Old Timey Casting is to provide Consulting and Casting services to Productions that want to add EXCELLENT service, and get MAXIMUM Production Value for their project.”
Let our love of History be your comfort in knowing we want to bring you the best to the screen.
Large production, or small… Reach out and let us steer you in the right direction.
