In person auditions will not be held, auditions should be sent in via self-taped video auditions. You will need to film your child and send casting director Matthew Morgan a small video if requested to do so. There are currently no callbacks scheduled, however there may be a possible Skype with the director and casting director. The commercial will be scheduled to shoot sometime between May 10th and May 12th. Each child will only be needed for one day.
If you would like to submit your child for the shoot, please email the casting team asap at firstname.lastname@example.org. You must submit right away as the deadline is Saturday, April 16th at 1:00pm. In the submission you should include the child’s name, parent’s name and contact number, the child’s age and date of birth, the current city in which you live, your representation if you have any, two photos (one head and shoulders showing the child’s face and a full length photo that shows your child’s build and which category that best fits your child. i.e. Child 1, Child 2, etc.
For the shoot the kids are either PP (speaking on camera) or SOC with V.O. Still to be determined. Most likely PP on camera with just a few lines and should be fun and easy. They are seeking kids who can work local hire to Jackson, MS please. It’s a nice spot and will be a fun experience and good for one’s reel as well!
