29 June 2019

Minister for Innovation and Skills David Pisoni today congratulated award-winning South Australian casting agency Heesom Casting on being appointed Australian Casting Directors for South Australia’s biggest ever film production, the epic action film Mortal Kombat.

Heesom Casting is South Australia’s market leader and the state’s only Casting Guild of Australia accredited, fully serviced, independent casting agency with credits including Wolf Creek, Venice-selected Boys in the Trees and recently Storm Boy.

Minister Pisoni said Heesom Casting, and principals Angela and Louise Heesom are shining examples of the world-class talent that exists in South Australia.

“It’s great to see another talented and innovative South Australian company join the ranks of the Mortal Kombat production being made at Adelaide Studios, further bolstering local input into the film,” he said.

“The Marshall Government has recognised the job opportunities that flow from investment in the creative industries, and by securing the largest film production in the state’s history, we’re supporting the continued growth and capability of the local industry.“

Mortal Kombat will create an estimated 580 jobs in South Australia, with more than 1,500 actors and extras employed, along with some $70 million injected into the State’s economy.”
