Child Actors needed for Educational Videos
Location: Austin, TX
LUMI Learning is an education startup that makes vocabulary videos. We are moving forward with a run of 1000 five-minute, live action videos and need a diverse cast of child actors to help present and teach our words. We are looking for high-energy child actors (8-11yrs) with positive attitudes and a passion for learning. Enunciating well and being enthusiastic are key to becoming an Actor/Teacher for LUMI Learning.
A link to a previous video is right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AU9HNPRK5hE
Send us an audition video following the script below. Remember to enunciate well (speak clearly):
“Hello, my name is (first name) and I am from (home town and state). Today, I will be teaching you the word, drink.’ Drink means to swallow liquid. I like to drink ______ because _______. Drink is spelled d-r-i-n-k. The /ink/ sound is formed by i-n-k.”
*Hint, many kids have trouble saying “is formed by.” Practice this and show us you can say it clearly in your audition video! If you can enunciate well, it’s far more likely you will be invited for an in-person audition.
