Thin and feminine, but physically capable. A girl who is naturally pretty, but a no-nonsense, do-it-herselfer. Someone who was probably a tomboy as a kid who grew into a beautiful woman. Someone like Tristin Mays or Nathalie Emmanuel.

[EAR INFECTION: MOTHER] Female. Late-30’s. Caucasian. Brunette. Attractive. A woman with a career and two kids. Someone who can do the whole executive thing, but at the end of the day is a bad ass woman who loves her children and can take action. Maybe someone like Emilia Clark or Ellen Page.

[EAR INFECTION: BOY] Male. 5-7 years old (should be small, so they read younger). Caucasian. Brunette. Sweet. Cute. Adorable (so we feel bad when he’s in pain). Needs to look like our mom is his mom.  Would be good to cast him in his PJ’s.

[SUTURES: GUY} Male. Late-30’s. Caucasian. Brunette. Works at an office, but has a love for cars and restoring them. He isn’t the stereo-typical car maintenance blue collar guy, but does have a bit of a rugged streak in him. Handsome.

[MEMBERSHIP: HUSBAND] Male. Mid-40’s. Caucasian. Prematurely balding, but has a nice style about him. Probably a lawyer or an accountant. Totally dedicated to his wife and career. A slight introvert, but fun loving. Think Bryan Cranston.

[FEMALE PROVIDER #1] Female. Early-40’s. Asian. Smart, confident, approachable and caring. Someone who looks together, yet warm and friendly. Someone like Maggie Q or Yum Jung Ah’.

[FEMALE PROVIDER #2] Female. Early-40’s. Caucasian. Brunette. Smart, confident and together. Very approachable and pretty, but looks extremely intelligent. Someone like Natalie Portman.

Special Notes:

These spots each tell a powerful narrative, and will require strong actors to convey the emotions represented in each spot. We will be looking at strong resumes, training, and experience. Because of the nature of the spots, they will play more like theatrical pieces rather than commercial – so it should represent an excellent opportunity for actors to get good tape. Initial session (one day flat shoot + wardrobe fitting) $500 plus usage of $500 totals $1,000 flat (no rep fee) for principal actors. Featured players will receive $300 flat for session and buyout combined. (Principal and featured are noted below – we will pull featured actors from principal auditions.) Additional payments for rehearsal or ADR time will be paid at $50/hour. Buyout included is 2 years for regional spots, and internet usage. All actors must agree to these buyout terms. Please check your conflicts – we are not holding for any conflicts, however please do not submit if you have another conflict with another school or educational institution from a previous job.
