CASTING NOTE: VERY PLEASED TO BE INVOLVED WITH THIS – I HAVE WAVIED MY FEE AS THIS IS SO IMPORTANT IN OUR INDUSTRY!
MALE OR FEMALE – ANY RACE – WITH A VISIBLE DISABILITY
(HERO) They are an actor (or have the ability to act). They have a visible disability. They are one of 3.8 million diverse Canadians who have a disability and rarely get represented by popular brand advertising. They are engaging, expressive, and confident. They probably sound and appear differently than what we would consider as “typical”, especially compared to the majority of people cast in commercials. They fit within a popular age range of target consumers often represented in ad. For example: “the millennial mom-age” or “the late 20-something guy”. We are looking for someone who can playfully move through our script, performing various scenarios and emotions that are common to advertising: the bite and smile; the look of amazement from a passing car; the thoughtful signing of paperwork; the casual tussling of their hair; the expert advice-giver (realtor, doctor, scientist); the affectionate look at an animal or baby (played by an inanimate object in the casting session); the look of joy upon receiving a gift, etc. Note: they will perform these things in a way that is authentic to someone with their disability.
