Hi Judy,
Last day today so just wanted to send a quick email to say a MASSIVE thank you!! Again you have done us a great job, with not a huge choice of children as they are all sunning themselves abroad!

But from the start you did EVERYTHING you could to make it work and put in a lot of hours to help us.

So thank you thank you thank you!!

And until the next time! xx

2nd Assistant Director - "Motherland" series 1

August 2017

"JAM2000 are a production company’s dream, they take the brief and offer a fully integrated service.  Not only are they professional but they take the stress away from the assistant director's department and production as a whole, they can source, cast, license, transport and chaperone their kids - often with short notice.  I wold not hesitate to recommend Judy and her wonderful team.  In fact, JAM2000 are always my first port of call when needing to cast children as I know that there will be no problems and that Judy will go the extra mile to get the job done. I have been using JAM2000 on every production for the past seven years and cannot stress how good they are.  Use them, you will not regret it.”

Adam Jenkins

1st Assistant Director,

The Inbetweeners, Horrible Histories

"During the filming of Call the Midwife, JAM2000 has literally proved to be a massive weight off my mind. Requiring lots of babies and children of all ages, with last minute schedule changes, can be a huge cause of stress in my job role, but JAM2000 were always more than helpful. They were not only able to supply the kids, push through the licensing but also provide qualified and reliable chaperones. There's always someone on the end of the phone, casting photos quickly available, emails answered promptly etc. and I soon found myself worrying much less, safe in the knowledge that JAM2000 had it all covered! I would certainly use JAM2000 again and again and again and again..."

Ben Rogers

2nd Assistant Director,

Call the Midwife Series 3

"JAM2000's speed and quality of service is second to none. They take all the hassle of license application off your hands to provide reliable child performers in no time at all."

Brett Thomas

2nd Assistant Director,

Chewing Gum, The Windsors, The Agency, The Wrong Mans

“I have used JAM2000 on two series of the BBC drama, Silent Witness. I have always found Judy and her team to be enthusiastic and professional. They have always been able to meet the brief no matter how difficult or time pressured. I recommend JAM2000 wholeheartedly!”

Tim Wood

2nd Assistant Director,

Silent Witness 19 & 20

“JAM2000 make what can be a difficult process very easy. They are great at working to a brief and have a very fast turnaround on licences. I would wholeheartedly recommend them.”

Will Cummins

2nd Assistant Director,


“I've worked with JAM2000 on several productions in film and television and the team is always incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and quick to get things done. They offer a complete service, from finding the right child performers to getting licenses and chaperones and nothing ever feels like too much trouble. JAM2000 have a wealth of talented young performers who have always been, bright, well behaved and delivered on camera. I will continue to use them and encourage others to do so too.”

2nd Russell Dewulff Booth

Assistant Director,


"I am always impressed with the service, care and professionalism from JAM2000. Judy and her team listen carefully to the requirements from any one of my productions and give me a fabulous selection of children who fill the criteria given.

“As a 2nd AD, working with JAM2000 takes all the additional pressure of working with, booking and licensing children.  They try to do as much of the hard work for you and are very aware of the fast pace productions work at.

“JAM2000 respond to questions almost immediately and are on hand to explain anything (even if you ask them the same question a million times!).  They also help to solve any potential problems so you can be assured there is always a Plan A, Plan B all the way through to Plan Z!

“Also, must mention the chaperones who are selected, not only for their true professionalism and obvious care for the children, but also on the basis that they understand how a production generally works.

“JAM2000 are extremely easy to work with.  They are my number 1 stop for all things related to working with children on a production.  I cannot recommend them highly enough and always look forward having anyone JAM2000 related on my productions.”

“I've always had a really positive and well organised experience with JAM2000 Agency. Great kids and lovely experienced chaperones and a really hassle-free process getting the licenses sorted. Thanks Judy!”

Helen Kenyon

2nd Assistant Director,

“I would highly recommend JAM2000 Agency. Judy supplied supporting artistes for me at very short notice and with a very specific brief and was brilliant, going above and beyond to make sure it all happened. On the day all the performers were great - punctual and professional, what more can you ask for!”

Caroline Caley

2nd Assistant Director


"I was recommended JAM2000 by production staff on both Cuckoo and Call the Midwife. I was very impressed by their delivery on a difficult brief for BBC's People Just Do Nothing. All of the administration for both the babies and chaperone was taken care of efficiently and friendly.  I didn't have to worry about a thing from the first phone call to the shoot day itself.  Thank you so much Judy and Carol - looking forward to working with you again soon."

"JAM2000 kids are impeccably behaved, self-controlled and delightful to work with. We couldn't have hoped for a better group of youngsters, so thank you for all your help and hard work on our behalf."

Paul Gilbert

“Professional, diligent & efficient; JAM2000 work tirelessly to fulfil their clients' ever changing briefs & requirements - sometimes at the 11th hour due the nature of filming. Judy & her team completely understand the filming process & take each challenge on as their own. I have worked with JAM2000 on countless productions over the last 6 years and found their children & teens to be polite, well behaved & great performers. You can tell that all have been well prepped, including the parents.”
