BRANSON TV SHOOT - TALENT SOUGHT
NOW CASTING: TV COMMERCIAL for the State of Missouri, to shoot in Branson Oct. 21 & 22. Seeking attractive & fit men and women, ages 40 – 60, any race. Pay is $3,700 minimum for TV & print, possible additional residuals.
Send digital video audition:
1. Please audition with a partner, preferably someone who is also auditioning and is age appropriate.
2. Have someone else shoot the video for you – cell phones are fine. Dress nice, casual.
3. Shoot Widescreen, holding the camera horizontally, not vertically.
4. Arrange a table with two chairs side by side facing the camera, as though for dining at a nice restaurant in a romantic setting. Actors should stand behind the chairs side by side, facing the camera. Frame one individual head and shoulders and have them say their full name and age to camera and, where they live. Point the camera at the other talent and do the same.
5. Step back so we can see both actors on camera, as close as possible. Actors should improvise a short scene about looking at some “sight” in Branson in the fall. Look out beyond the camera as though what they are viewing is beyond, just off to the left or right of the camera. This should be no more than 1 minute.
6. Continue rolling as the actors sit down at the table, as though having just arrived for their romantic dinner. Step back so we can see talent from top of head to the table top. Talent should then improvise a short scene about dining in Branson, again, about 1 minute. Total video 2:30 MAXIMUM!
Videos should be sent via WeTransfer. Do not try to email them!!! WeTransfer is a free service on the internet and you can upload and then send a link to your video. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline is TUESDAY, OCT. 14, 2 PM.
NOTE: It is important to be very natural, pauses are fine, conversation should be about fun things you have seen or are seeing in the Branson area. Keep it genuine & real.
