Who we are


Oncata is a community casting platform that provides all humans (and their pets!) an opportunity to make supplementary income by being featured in media content for brands, ad agencies, production companies, and photographers. We inspire change to media representation to be more authentic and diverse through community casting by challenging stereotypes, bias, or perfection beyond appearance.

Our mission


Since 2014, we have supported the community with supplementary income opportunities and paid out over $1M in talent fees. We noticed we need to improve the reach of this income opportunity to people from disadvantaged neighborhoods, immigrant communities, and people with disabilities especially during these trying times. We strive to bring more authenticity into media by elevating people in the community and their passions and eliminating celebrity culture by highlighting role models in the community around us.
