Bay Area CA – Cellphone Company Seeks Paid Comedic Actress for Commercial


Bay Area Video Company Seeking Female Comedy Soloist

Location: San Jose CA

Type: Comedy

I’m with a film and video production company in the South Bay. One of our clients, a startup cellphone company, has asked us to create a comic social media video for them to use on their own sites – so pretty quick and low budget, but it’s a simple idea and we will do a great job on it.

Without getting into detail it is based around a woman telling her boyfriend she is breaking up with him, and riffing through some of the reasons why, before we get to the final cut away shot showing the boyfriend is her cellphone – the video isn’t an advert, it is actually saying “live life without your cellphone taking it over” as a PSA-style two minute piece.

So we are looking for a local female comedian, who looks to be in her twenties, for the shoot. She should be able to think on her feet (and ad lib her way through the concept as it isn’t scripted) and be able to work solo with the camera – a professional comic who can improvise rather than an actress who needs to be fed lines.

This is a half day paid gig that we need to shoot at the end of the coming week somewhere in the Bay, and as a bonus we can provide a high quality digital video file for her reel at the end of the project.


Payment: Paid
