Tire (sample#1)

Ps-s-s-t….Do you have what it takes?

No, not up there…down here!

Hey, you look familiar…do I know you? No?

Well that’s the most important question you’ll need to answer with us.

And that’s proving your identity! So bringing the right documents

with you is super important.

In fact, that’s why they created me in the first place. To remind

YOU to have the right paperwork in hand before walking in that

door.

 

Tire (sample#2)

Alright…now that you know what documents you need, I gotta

split. Well not literally…look at me; I have less than 3,000 miles

of tread ware… I mean I gotta go… But before I do here’s one

last don’t forget.

Don’t forget that a lot of  this info can be completed online,

using your smartphone, tablet, or computer.

You can even schedule your next appointment…how great is

that?!

MUSIC VIDEO CASTING- BEA MILLER, SEEKING SAG & NON-SAG TALENT

Project: Music Video
Artist: BEA MILLER- Fire and Gold V2
Label: Hollywood Records, Syco Music
Producer: Michelle Cameron
Director: Tim Mattia
Shoot Dates: March 7th AND/OR March 8th
Location: NYC
Rate: SAG- $350 flat/8, NON-SAG- $75 flat/8 (possible waiver)

Reference Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMMNrth246k

A story of a teenage girl’s alienation from those around her. Her loneliness and frustration will be beautifully photographed using the epic yet claustrophobic cityscape of New York as a backdrop. It will ultimately be a story of connection.

SEEKING:

 

[GIRL- LEAD]

Female, 18+ to read as 14-18 years, Caucasian, petite, under 5’4”,  looking for cool/funky/edgy hair cuts/colors/styles (possible reimbursement to dye hair) SAG and Non-Union, LEAD, STRONG ACTOR, VULNERABLE and can CRY ON CUE. Think the essence and substance
of young Kristin Dunst in her Virgin Suicides days, Evan Rachel Wood in 13, Chloe Grace Moriez or Claire Danes in Romeo & Juliet.  Someone you look at and know that they are different, a bit special and unique.  Also let us know if you are willing to alter your hair (reimbursed and restored by production) with color/cuts/styling- please specify.

This video will be all about the sense of isolation and alienation that our lead girl feels – that “alone in a crowd” sensation – all until the very final moments when she finally has a connection with Bea, and realizes that she’s not alone after all, that there are others like her, and perhaps that everyone feels disconnected at some points during their lives. Possible two day shoot.

 

[COUPLE]

Male & Female, 30-35 years, Caucasian, SAG/AFTRA, SUPPORTING, slender, good looking but striking in a unique way, not your typical beauty. Possible two day shoot.

[BACKGROUND]

Male & Female, 18+ to read as 15-20 years, all ethnicities, NON-UNION talent only, attractive, unique looks a plus. Shoots one day only, either 3/7 or 3/8.
