Bluewater Ranch was established by Mindy Marin in 1991 and is located in Santa Monica, California. It is a creative oasis for the development of ideas for film, television, and books. And hopefully an invention or two. It is also a place where the practice of kindness to animals and our environment is held in the highest esteem. Marin also founded Casting Artists, Inc., a subsection of Bluewater Ranch, out of a deep desire to paint landscapes with talented members of humanity. They are governed by a work ethic defined by truly caring about the artistic process and the spirits involved in bringing life to characters on a page. Although the focus of Casting Artists, Inc. is feature films, they have also collaborated on projects for television.
