Union/Non-Union Casting for Political Response Ads – All Types, 18+

Posted on September 26, 2014 by admin

Team J has been asked to potentially support rush casting for political ads created in response to events and other political spots this election cycle.

Because of the fast turnaround nature of these spots, we’re looking to assemble a roster of actors who have availability between October 6 and October 31.

We will contact specific actors with specific details depending on the spot. Right now, we understand there might be both non-union and union projects, both at respective commercial rates.

We are using Stonehenge to collect and organize our submissions. If you already have a profile there, just log in and submit. If you don’t have a profile already, you can create one for free. If you’re already logged in, you can go right to the project link.

Under the “Roles” field, please indicate what general category or categories you wish to be considered for:

Everyman/Everywoman

Whether it’s an earnest young professional or a concerned retiree, we’re looking for all ages and ethnicities of everymen and everywomen. Character actors, your time is now. Chiseled jaws need not apply.

Background performers

While less likely, there is the possibility that we would have a setting requiring background performers, so if you have availability and interest in background work, let us know.

Voiceover

Whether you need to be an authoritative expert OR an earnest citizen about why we need more OR less regulation regarding [issue], we’re looking for both male and female voiceover artists. Note: these will most likely be SAG-AFTRA, but please also submit if you are a non-union voiceover artist.

We look forward to working with many of you.
