***CASTING FOR NORTHERN BASED ACTORS ONLY*** (another Casting Director is casting southern based talent.)

We are casting for a Christmas TV commercial for a Supermarket.

We are casting for 2 x funny and heartfelt scripts for this Christmas ad that focus on the family & food;
Script One - All Gravy
Script Two - Mum's Turn

These films show the truths about the communality of food, the role food takes in so many of our memories, the way it can become part of a family’s traditions, or in the worst cases, folklore!

Most importantly, these films are about the way food connects to the idea of home and what our homes mean to us; comfort, safety, understanding and the kind of relationships you can never make out in the real world.

The films are full of magic and humour, not in spite of their authenticity but because of it.

Christmas is a magical time, undeniably, but it’s also funny - it’s a time people and families let their guard down, get drunk, do silly things, fall asleep, buy inappropriate gifts...so there’s visible humour inherent situationally.

Older Gravy Dad

He is the older version of the younger Dad. Ideally has a strong accent, from Jamaican, Nigerian, to Liverpudlian. The Dad is a bit of a character. He’s always trying to embarrass his daughter and is the sort of guy who doesn't mind performing in front of friends and family. The relationship with the daughter needs to be convincing. We need to instantly buy that this man is this girl’s daddy. Real Dad and Daughters would be great but not essential.

Male, aged 60 to 70

  • Ethnicity: Black / African descent

Applications closed 19 September 2020.

Gravy Daughter

The daughter is old enough to feel shame when her dad starts singing. Even though it’s not in front of anyone other than the family, she’s mortified as soon as he opens his mouth. She is maybe a bit awkward. A little too tall for her age, or a little uncomfortable in her own skin. CAN NOT BE APPEARING IN ANY OTHER XMAS ADS BSF: £350 BUYOUT: £1,000 USAGE

Female, aged 9 to 11

  • Ethnicity: Black / African descent

Dad - Script 2 - Secondary Role

This scene is from the past - set in the 1980's. Dad is a bit more sensible, smart, well presented. He thrives on a task. Being in charge of carving the turkey is very important to him. There’s a kindness about him too though and he is well loved by the whole family. CAN NOT BE APPEARING IN ANY OTHER XMAS ADS SECONDARY ROLE BSF: £350 BUYOUT: £2,000 USAGE

Gravy Dad

Ideally has a strong accent, from Jamaican, Nigerian, to Liverpudlian. The Dad is a bit of a character. He’s always trying to embarrass his daughter and is the sort of guy who doesn't mind performing in front of friends and family. Maybe he’s a let himself go a bit since having kids? Maybe he’s given up on trying to look good and is now all about comfort? He’s not fat, but a bit “hearty". We need to instantly buy that this man is this girl’s daddy. Real Dad and Daughters would be great
