Casting Call for TV Commercial
A Casting agency just released a casting call for families for a NATIONAL TV spot to air during the Superbowl. The casting call is asking for REAL families, not actors for featured, yet non-speaking parts in the spot.
They are looking for families that consist of a MOM, DAD and 2-4 KIDS ages 8 to 16 years old. They are looking for outdoorsy type families that look active and natural.
At this time, casting directors are only looking for Caucasian families. The TV commercial will be filming in New Mexico soon and the deadline to apply is the 13th. The TV commercial will be filming in the Albuquerque, NM area and all selected will get SAG level pay which is $627.00 per family member.
