3 Male Actors Required - Online Branded Content - Chance To Travel
Dates: 28th-29th September
Age: 25-30 (Legally must be 25+)
Strong Improvisors Required
Travel/Overnight on Saturday 28th
Terra Nova are producing a piece of branded content for Gamble Aware which will be published by Lad Bible and that is designed to challenge negative betting behaviours; e.g. betting whilst drunk, betting whilst bored, chasing losses. The piece will feature three fictional "lads" as they create a travelogue/vlog of their journey to an obscure European football game.
The narrative will introduce the idea that one amongst their group has a bad habit of betting on particularly obscure European football. He has always claimed that he is ITK and knows what he is doing. In reality, the habit is the result of betting whilst drunk, bored and trying to win back his losses. To challenge these habits once and for all, his two friends have decided to get him to put his money where his mouth is by booking flights and tickets to see his "favourite" Slovakian football team, Spartak Trnava. As the video travelogue progress, and through a series of pre-determined (with improvised dialogue) comedy beats, it becomes increasingly obvious that our featured better knows very little about the team and that his habit needs re-evaluating.
We are looking for three male actors, with strong improvisation skills, who would travel with a small crew to shoot these comedy beats. The cast and crew would fly out to the featured country/city in Europe early on Saturday 28th, filming sequences en route, before attending a football match in question to film the in-game sequences. There may be some pick-ups that would be required on Sunday 29th, but most of the content would be shot on Day 1, leaving Day 2 as a travel day back to London.
In addition to the acting fee, or travel accommodation expenses will be covered in addition to a Per Diem for meals. The film will be shot in the style of a Vlog so the acting style must be naturalistic, rough and believable to avoid the audience knowing that these characters are fictional. Please make sure to reflect this in your self tapes. Please feel free to apply for either or both of the two roles.
Audition / Rehearsal / Production datesAudition: Self Tape Required. Please Improvise the following scene for your self-tape:
You are packing for your weekend away to Slovakia and have decided now would be a good opportunity to start the Travel Vlog. You introduce what your doing, where you're going and your secret agenda; i.e. to get James to finally admit he's wasting his money on these bets. You've got to be quiet though because James is in the next room packing his stuff too...
Filming Dates: 28th-29th September
£150 per day - Two Days Required - Total £300
Expenses paid - We will cover all travel expenses; flights, accomodation and will include per-diems for meals.
UPDATE: Please provide your self-tapes as a WeTransfer link in your cover letter. Thank you.

James - The Bettor
Character Description: James is your typical mid-twenties lad. Football is his main passion; he watches it, plays it, bets on it. To the increasing concern of his best mates, Dan and Tyler, he has started making a habit of betting on quite obscure European football matches; the Slovak Super League to be precise. In his opinion, he thinks you get better odds on smaller leagues and now considers himself a bit of an ITK expert.
Males, aged 25 to 30
Nick - The Friend
Character Description: Nick is your typical mid-twenties lad. Football is his main passion; he watches it, players it at the weekend. Recently, Nick has noticed that best mate James has started betting more and more on very obscure European football and more often than not losing those bets. This is particularly annoying because James owes nick £50. Nick and other friend, Tyler, have schemed together to organise a trip to Slovakia to see the team James claims to know loads about.
