Rose Waite is a London based Creative Researcher. After graduating from Goldsmiths University in 2012, she went on to gain experience at a variety of media and production companies before finding her niche in casting, image and story research on a freelance basis.
In the past she has provided research on a number of commercial projects for clients including The Times & The Sunday Times (Unquiet Film Series), The National Lottery and Ikea. Simultaneously Rose has worked on various non-commercial films, including shorts for Vice Media, and as lead researcher on Tomas Leach’s feature documentary, ‘The Lure’, which recently debuted at DOC NYC film festival.
Rose has since specialised in documentary commercial research, finding real people with real stories for companies such as Somesuch, RSA Films and Mother London. In 2016 Rose worked as Casting Researcher on 4Creative/ Blink Production’s “We’re the Superhumans” for Channel 4, promoting the Rio Paralympic games. For her work on the project Rose was awarded a Gold Cannes Lion, a Gold British Arrow for Casting, Gold at the Creative Circle Awards, and a D&AD Pencil for Casting.
Rose continues to regularly find interesting stories, people and images for directors, production companies and agencies across the UK and Europe.
