Feature film director with studio experience. One day shoot. Rate is flat for a 10-hour shooting day (plus the 10% if there is an agent). Separate rider for potential regional broadcast at pre-negotiated cost of $1500 for 2 years, only to be paid if spot airs.
Character Descriptions and Notes (plus Storyline if applicable):
The spot is light and funny in tone, but actors should be natural and grounded. Quirky people who are funny or have comedic chops is obviously a plus. Think interesting types – like in Woody Allen films. Great characters. Minimal improv necessary.
[PRIEST] Male. Caucasian. 50’s-60’s. Kind, puritanical, strait-laced, but has a good sense of humor.
[HIP-HOP GUY] Male. African-American man. Late 20’s. Has a hip-hop vibe – baseball hat, urban, cool, real.
[ORTHODOX MAN] Male. Caucasian. 40’s. Orthodox Jewish man – should look as authentic as possible (i.e., must look Jewish).
[SIKH MAN] Male. East Indian or Ethnically Ambiguous. Late 30’s. Man with turban/pagri (if possible or willing to wear one) – must look authentic.
[HARAJUKU GIRL] Female. Asian. 20’s. Japanese animation Harajuku girl – pop, colorful, cute.
[MODERN MUSLIM] Female. Middle-Eastern. 30’s. Modern looking Middle-Eastern Muslim woman – good natured, warm.
