We are casting multiple roles for REAL SKATERS, for a major TVC.

Not just a journey of improving to skate – it’s a journey of personal growth.
Trepidation, mistakes, bravery and finally inspiration. We want to treat it like a miniature feature – splitting it up into three acts. A clear beginning, middle and end. The first act establishes she loves to skate but hasn’t quite cracked it yet. In the middle – her fall at the skatepark ends badly… …but she’s welcomed into
the local skate crew. In the last act –we show her making friends, gaining in confidence.

Aamira - Real Hijabi Muslim

We want to cast as close to the actual role as possible. The girl needs to look around 15 and must be able to skate. She must have that optimistic fearless attitude you only get when you’re a teen. She’s not a kid and not yet a cool teenager. It is also our intention to cast a real Muslim skater who wears a hijab. Since discovering skating she lives and breathes it – it’s a huge part of her life. Immersing herself in the scene, Its culture; the fashion, art and music.

Female, aged 14 to 16

  • Ethnicity: Black / African descent , Eurasian / Pan Asian, Indian, Middle Eastern , Pakistani, South Asian

Applications closed 26 October 2021.

Aamira's Friend - Any Ethnicity

Her friend could be slightly older but no more than 16. They need to be confident and have that skate swagger. Like the rest of the cast, they need to actually be a skater. It would be cool if they were also not your ‘traditional’ skater- type, as someone who has also struggled to fit into the mould would be more likely to reach out. – To Aamira she’s a hero, untouchable in her eyes. An older kid at the same school, more streetwise, a better skater. She’s got all the vibes Aaamira wants.

Female, aged 14 to 16

Applications closed 26 October 2021.

Skate Crew

The crew should be a mix of genders and ethnicities and aged anywhere from 13 but no older than 16. Must all be able to skateboard.

Anyone, aged 12 to 14

Applications closed 26 October 2021.

Young Boy

The boy at the end should be younger than Aamira, around 10 years old. He can be of any ethnicity, providing of course we are ensuring diversity across our principal characters. He should seem innocent, a little naive, and full of wonder at what he’s witnessing.

Male, aged 9 to 10
