About us

Founded by Kay Price - Lindsay and Ross Lindsay in 1995, Kayos has grown to be one of South Africa's premier commercial casting studios. With 1000s of international and local commercials successfully cast, Kayos is often the first choice for directors, agencies and production companies alike.

As Kayos is passionate about making everyone we work with look good, we pride ourselves on delivering a quality service. We ensure that clients are presented with the freshest and best talent Cape Town has to offer. When the talent look good, then the K team looks good and when we look good then our clients and the industry as a whole looks good. That's what still drives Kayos two decades later.

Kayos has cast numerous award winning commercials and have worked with some of the best directors and creatives in the ad industry.

Monique Murray (BA HONS Drama) and Chris Geils bring their experience, eye and sensitivity to each casting and ensure that each job is to brief, including props, stand in actors, wardrobe and voice coaches as required. Terence Yawa ensures that all cast coordinating such as options and call backs run smoothly.  Iain Milne coordinates the studios, to ensure all artists are shown in the best way possible, ably assisted by Lungiswa Sithole at our front of house.  Roxi Pijper, our operations coordinator, makes sure that the entire building and HR run like clockwork.

Featured in UK's Campaign Magazine as one of the top three commercial casting directors in theWorld, Kay Price-Lindsay stands behind the Kayos Team ensuring a systematic, passionate and attention to detail product.

Each and every job through the Kayos doors is supported by highly experienced casting directors, a dedicated studio manager, quality controller, cast coordinator and trained freelance studio directors.  We embrace available technology to consistently present in the most efficient and accurate manner.  

With customised LED lighting, and an almost paperless environment, we continue to strive to be as green as possible.  A Kayos job is also backed up with technical support and up to the minute searches and picture castings off WholeBangShoot.

That's why everyone looks good ;-)
