Real People Casting

Job Details:

 

We are casting for a commercial for IU Health.  This spot will be a montage of quick shots with these different roles (non-speaking). The concept behind the spot is looking ahead for brighter days after getting the Covid vaccine. They are looking for real people for this. It's OK to submit if you are one of our actors/models, but they are also open to real people you may know in your friends and family circle.  

 

They will be filming in the Indianapolis area on April 14th, 15th and 16th.  It will be a pretty fast-paced shoot day, so each person will probably only be needed for a couple hours and they'll be on to the next location.  These are paid roles, $500 flat per person.   

Please review the different roles below.  They are just asking for a quick video with your phone for your submission.  Please read the notes for each role on what they'd like you to say.  We are collecting these submissions through the weekend and on Monday, so please submit sooner rather than later.  If you know someone you may match one of these roles, feel free to send them this link, but we ask you not share on social media.

The videos don't need to be long, something like 30 seconds or so if probably fine.  You can use your phone to record with (just remember to turn sideways, so you are filming in widescreen instead of vertically if you can).
