"A great background casting director takes an eye for detail. It's not about moving people, it is about painting the exact background needed for each scene. Robin's intelligence, talent, and eagerness to work makes her one of the best at what she does. Detail is her forte'."

"Wisely, I hired Robin Batherson to help me with casting on the Tony Scott/Jerry Bruckheimer movie, “Déjà vu”.
"DejaVu" was my first casting job in New Orleans. With the daunting task of needing to cast over 6,000 extras of all ages, shapes and sizes in New Orleans, with less than half of it’s population back in the city post Hurricane Katrina, I knew I needed to hire a partner who was up to the task.
There was no one else who could have taken on this challenging a casting assignment except Robin Batherson.
With her feature film and TV experience, Robin has the files, contacts, and excellent relationships with the regulatory agencies, in particular, the Labor Commission. She is meticulous in her paperwork with all permits.
Besides her spot on talent for picking the right faces Robin is cool under fire, navigating her way through the constant changing schedules, last minute additions, and all the other details that are the norm with filmmaking.
Lastly, and to my way of thinking her most important quality - Robin is compassionate in her dealings with each and every extra, actor, and member of the production staff. Simply put - she cares.
I would hire Robin on any production shooting anywhere.
