We had the good fortune of connecting with Adam Browne and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Adam, how have you been keeping yourself busy during quarantine?
I’m learning spanish! I am naturally a very busy person, I can’t sit still and do nothing. Also I moved during quarantine so we are slowly renovating our house. To be honest I have not had much down time, we are still casting for clients and this combined with moving and learning a language I’m busier than ever. The way I like it.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I started this business over 10 years ago back in 2009. I remember we worked out of an old artist studio in the inner city of Sydney with a bunch of other struggling creatives. Our first job was street casting goth kids for Cadburys – we were so excited to get our first client but back then we were hitting the pavement with a camera and clip board all day for days on end. It was hard work. Fast forward to now and we are fortunate enough to be working with some of the top fashion, beauty and lifestyle brands in the world. It was a tough road, I sacrificed a lot in the beginning to get the business to where it is today but never giving up and pushing forward will eventually get you there in the end. It is true what they say, the more you put in to it the more you get out of it. We still have so much more to accomplish but its a win every-time we get a dream client and you think this is it, finally we got to a level we have been wanting to achieve. Then another client comes along which tops the last and the same feeling comes back. I don’t think this will ever go away – there is still so much I want to do! But this is how it grows. Six Wolves has always been about finding those unique and interesting faces that are outside of what people classify as a classic beauty. We celebrate individuality, inclusiveness and diversity with people from all over the world. We are about casting people that maybe never thought they could be represented in main stream media. There are so many beautiful people in this world with incredible stories that have been under represented – they need to have light shined upon them.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would start with an early morning hike in Griffith Park and finish with breakfast at Home State for their breakfast tacos – its important to see LA from above to get your bearings. This city can swallow you up but seeing the ocean to downtown on a clear day is really quite something. I love hoping around the galleries so definitely seeing what exhibitions the LACMA, Hammer, Broad and Hauser & Wirth have on, actually lunch at Manuela at the H&W gallery is a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. A drive down to Laguna Beach is magic in the summer. One of the things I love about living in LA is the close proximity to whats around you – I would do a night or two in Palm Springs and Idyllwild and day trip to Santa Barbara to sit on the pier and have a clam chowder over sunset drinks. It would all end with an intimate dinner with close friends in our backyard.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Marcia Rothschild – she has always been my biggest supporter and a true friend in the industry and in life. She is a Casting Director with Six Wolves along with juggling many other film projects – hugely talented and incredible woman.
