4) Are you between the ages of 25 and 65?
5) Are you willing to take direction performing to a more senior audience and those with Learning Disability?
6) Are you confident in front of the camera?
7) Are you punctual?
8) If not cast in a primary role within a program are you willing to be a freelance backup Performer (in case a Performer is unwell)?
9) Are you willing to follow strict sanitation and cleaning procedures before, during and after entering the on-location TV studio? (disinfectant spray, wipes will be provided)
10) Are you willing to wear some PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) upon entering the site? (Mask and Gloves will be provided and are to be worn until the filming commences)
11) Are you willing to video a self-tape of between 2-3 minutes for this first stage audition?

Significance:
This is a vital DVD TV Production service delivering offline programs for the mental wellbeing of the audience (those confined within Care Homes and Supported Living throughout the UK lockdown).

Rates of Pay:
Rate of pay starts from £80 p.h. for Videoed Performance Program content within a 4-hour (half-day) session or 8-hour (whole-day) session, depending on assigned agreed activity program/s involvement.
On-location filming sessions will determine your pay (The hourly rate factors in some preparatory one to one skype and team zoom meetings, your preparation, the on-location filming itself, travel expenses and royalty release).

The regularity:
Video production will run within a 4 weeks cycle:
- Week 1 and 2 (Filming Programs)
- Week 2/3 (Editing, DVD Production and Delivery)
- Week 4 (Buffer period and rest)

Potential further work:
After the pandemic has subsided (it could be up to 6-7 months at least) I intend this offline HMBS.TV DVD Channel to continue into the future. It has huge development potential outside the crisis period.

Strict cleaning protocols will be followed (considering the Coronavirus Pandemic). Nova Multipurpose Cleaner (Containing a Quaternary Ammonium Compound which breaks down the Coronavirus) will be used on all surfaces (It’s used in Care Homes, Schools, Hospitals etc). Also, Alcohol wipes will be used on all equipment.

I anticipate a lot of response to this Performance casting call, so please be patient. I will respond in time to all submissions that meet the criteria but will not respond to those who don’t.

What to do next:
Audition stage 1 brief (read carefully)
If you believe you fulfil the criteria, you are required to prepare a 2-3 minute self-tape (video). You need only to video using your smartphone (or video camera if you prefer but this will not influence the casting process). Upload your video to your profile as an audition self-tape and forward me the link with your application.

Content of the sample video:
Feel free to perform a sample compilation that you think might interest a senior (elderly) person and includes those with Learning Disability (Autism, Dementia etc.). Yes, it’s a challenge, you may have experienced already with this kind of audience. I want to see how you would perform something of potential interest.

I wish you every success, and I look forward to receiving your applications.

Best regards,

James
