Theresa Teresi

Theresa Teresi

Casting Director

Theresa Teresi was born to the South Bronx. Before she turned five she moved to Bergen County, NJ, then to Suffern, NY for a few years, where she had her first child, Philly, and eventually Fair Oaks (near Middletown), New York, where she had her second child, Cassie. One day she got a text from a friend asking if she could work the concessions once a week at the beautiful Paramount Theatre in Middletown. That's where she found a passion for the arts.

Theresa eventually worked concessions as the manager, and then was asked to work on a movie by Kenneth Del Vecchio, owner of the Hoboken International Film Festival. Theresa was scared to work on any movie because she didn't know what to expect, but she wouldn't let fear get her way.

She was hired as a production assistant, but within three days wound up getting a promotion to associate producer. The first year Theresa was working with Ken, he made her the vice chairwoman of the festival.

Theresa worked on many movies with many directors and producers as an actress, associate producer, casting for background actors, location manager, and even did hair and makeup.

Theresa is always happy to work on movies and videos, meeting new people, and calling them "family".
