Ascension St. Vincent - Audition

Summary/Notes from Casting Director:

We are casting for several short scenes in real hospital settings. The hospitals are providing the docs and nurses. We are casting the patients and their family members, care-givers etc. Most scenarios will have a patient and a support person (parent, child, partner, etc.). Everyone will be in a standard surgical type mask the entire time they are on set. Of course they will have to be appropriately screened at entry, just like anyone entering a hospital currently.

 

The client has put a three-year buy-out on this but it’s important to note that they are going to be filming in masks so it is highly unlikely they will run that long. The point of the campaign is to entice non-covid patients to begin returning to the hospital for their regular/on-going health care needs. I would imagine this will be a pretty short running campaign.

 

There will be 26 actors selected. They should be strong facial performers so that we can read emotions by their eyes and physicality. Of the 26, we expect about six of the actors chosen to be pediatric patients (5-16) and 6 to be over 50. The remainder will be split pretty evenly between 20s, 30s and 40s. 4 of the adults will be expectant couples so if you have any pregnant ladies, we want to see them!
