Actors Required for for NSW Mental Health Commission Content - $500

Auckland, NZ

  Staff Pick

The Mental Health Commission for New South Wales requires actors for their video content.

It’s a job through Film Construction, shooting here in Auckland.

We’re looking to cast some non-identifiable talent to be in these little videos.

The vignettes will be filmed in a style which will keep each of the actors anonymous. We never see the faces of the cast. The camera follows them, watches over their shoulder, follows their hands. We may see them full length, but never front on.

We’re looking for talent that just seem like every day people. Really natural, and off the cuff.

These videos will sit on the Mental Health Commission website in perpetuity, so will be publicly available online. But will mainly be used for internal training resources, and shared amongst health professionals.

We’re casting via self tapes/home recordings for this project. Depending on your application, an audition script will be sent to you via email.

The casting should include over the shoulder shooting, hands, and full length shots from behind.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

Actors will be required for just one half day shoot between 1-3 June.

Job payment

Fixed price of $500 - in perpetuity.
