The role will involve a few scenes using the skincare product (applying to lips, face, neck and hands) and a few scenes playing the "happy mother" role opposite a 7-11 year old child. Depending on the talent chosen, there may be some spoken voice over content to capture on the day as well.
Location: The video will be shot in a home location and photography studio in Sydney's inner west
Time and Date: Filming and photography will occur on the Wednesday 8th November 2016 from 8am - 6pm (at most) with possible extra pickup hand closeups and video shots occurring on Thursday 9th November 2016 from 8am - 12pm (only if required).
The look we are going for is:
• caucasian in appearance (but open to other options for the right candidate)
• youthful but mature enough to play a mother
• has great face and hand skin
• has natural lips in good condition
• hair colour preferably brunette or blonde with a slightly darker tone.
• an articulate speaking voice is a plus but not required
Casting: Once we have a shortlist of talent we will be conducting a basic 15 minute on-camera casting sessions in our production studios for the client to give final approval. We will be making our recommendation to the client as well.
Usage: The video will initially be used in a retail and point of sale environment but may in future be cut down to shorter segments for use on TV, cinema or other advertising platforms such as social media. Photography will similarly be used for online, offline, social media and print advertising and marketing. This is not an exhaustive list but indicates the usage expected.
Talent release: As this is a new brand and product with a limited budget for launch, we prefer to work directly where possible and require a full release of all rights in perpetuity for the content produced in terms of photography, image, audio and video recordings.
All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Paid - $300 - $500 for total project
