I am casting several very short (20 sec) spots for voucher/coupon website
and looking for several cast – ALL ACTORS TO LOOK PAN-EUROPEAN. The
directors are very much looking for the comedy angle i.e. they want their
cast to be intrinsically amusing. All ages are playing ages
They will need to establish their character in a
very short space of time so will want to have a really accessible
performance and look.
Shoot: 1 day either 28th OR 29th Sept
Fee: the actors will NOT be needed for a whole day filming as they are shooting 7 scripts in a
day – probably on set for a maximum 4 hours. The fee all in is £1000.
This figure needs to include shoot fee and buyout
for UK, Spain, Italy, France and Germany. TV and internet. IT WILL NOT RUN
FOR MORE THAN A FEW WEEKS IN ANY OF THESE COUNTRIES
The only info from client we have at the moment is:
UK will begin end of October and run for 2 weeks
until circa 12th Nov. Germany is the same.
Spain – TBC, likely to be towards the end of the year.
I know this rate is low – as does the production
company – my huge apologies – I can only stress that these are very short
vignettes. I want you to know that I ALWAYS try and get decent rates for the
actors however sometimes it is out of my hands. I often turn down or lose
jobs because I insist for more money however I have a 10 yr relationship
with this prod co….
