I am a casting director in Austin in need of deaf &/or hard of hearing people with ASL proficiency. I would love to find a way to either post the info to your newsletter or have you share the information with the community.
We are casting a web & social media based commercial for a reader in a specific smart device that will transcribe calls into real time texts. If cast in the commercial, talent will be paid $500 for the shoot day plus another $1,500.00 to cover the usage of the commercial for 2 years. There will also be a possible renewal after 2 years at the $,1500.00 rate again.
Previous acting experience is not needed for the commercial. The target audience for the advertising campaign is people in their 20s, 30s, & 40s so we can audition anyone in that age range and of any ethnicity.
There are 4 roles to cast and we would love to have people who know each other. For instance, a real couple or family members or friends who regularly use signing with each other and possibly other communication devices.
Auditioning is easy. We are asking people to email self-taped videos to us by Monday, June 22nd. We do not need high tech videos. We can accept videos made with smart phones.
The client wants to film the commercial in the Austin area during the week of the 29th so casting decisions will need to be made next week.
Please let me know if you have any questions and if you will forward this opportunity to members in your organization. If so, I can send over an instruction sheet and the audition scripts. Thank you for your time.
