CASTING IN AUSTIN, TX FOR AN UNDISCLOSED BEER COMMERCIAL

Burton Casting is casting a commercial campaign for an undisclosed beer company on Thurs. 2/20 in Austin, TX (and possibly in the morning on Fri. 2/21). Callbacks will be on Mon. 2/24.

We are looking for the following:

For the Main Characters and the Bachelorette/Beachgirls – Ideally we would like to find groups of friends who already have a relationship with one another so that chemistry does not have to be created on the shoot days. Therefore it would really work to your advantage if you brought some of your close friends to the audition with you. When submitting, let us know if any of your friends are available to join you.

MAIN GUY (Main Character): 25-30 yrs. (but should look younger), open on race, good looking but still authentic looking. Good/average shape but not overly athletic. He has a decent, yet aloof-looking style, making whatever he’s wearing work for him. He’s confident, friendly, and approachable. He’s your average guy that everyone wants to be friends with. There is no dialogue in these spots. ALL TALENT MUST BE OVER 25 YEARS OLD (for beer advertising). WE WILL BE CHECKING ID’S AT THE AUDITION.

MALE FRIENDS (Main Character): 25-30 yrs., Open on race, more diversity here. We are looking for a variety of different friend types. The stylish friend, the meathead, the hipster, multiple friends of different races, etc. That said, real friends will create a chemistry on camera, so let’s absolutely aim for that. There could be a jerk type guy in the group, there could be the shyest guy ever in the crew. There is no dialogue in these spots. ALL TALENT MUST BE AT LEAST 25 YEARS OLD (for beer advertising). WE WILL BE CHECKING ID’S AT THE AUDITION.

GIRL FRIEND (Main Character): 25-30 yrs., Open on race, This is the naturally pretty, hangs-out-with-the-guys kind of girl – in good, athletic shape, similar to a runner’s build. She’s not super skinny but not super muscular. She’s cute, smiley and approachable and doesn’t wear a lot of makeup or have to doll herself up to be attractive. She’s the kind of girl who doesn’t have a lot of girlfriends, feeling way more comfortable with her guy friends. There is no dialogue in these spots. ALL TALENT MUST BE AT LEAST 25 YEARS OLD (for beer advertising). WE WILL BE CHECKING ID’S AT THE AUDITION.

BACHELORETTE/BEACHGIRLS (Secondary Characters): 25-30 yrs., Open on race, All types of fun girls who would be going to a bachelorette-type party together. While they’re certainly attractive and like to party, they’re approachable, friendly and not the bottle service kind of girls. They all have their own unique identifiable qualities. For example, maybe one is blonde, another is wearing glasses and one has short hair. There is no dialogue in these spots. ALL TALENT MUST BE AT LEAST 25 YEARS OLD (for beer advertising). WE WILL BE CHECKING ID’S AT THE AUDITION.

BALDIE BEARDO (Secondary Character): 25-40 yrs. Open on race, Big, tall, brawny bouncer who’s bald and has a big beard. Think biker kind of build. He’s wearing pretty understated clothes and is pretty intimidating-looking. You do not need to necessarily be bald and have a beard if you are tough and intimidating looking. There is no dialogue in these spots. ALL TALENT MUST BE AT LEAST 25 YEARS OLD (for beer advertising). WE WILL BE CHECKING ID’S AT THE AUDITION.

MULLET MCHEADBAND (Secondary Character): 25-30 yrs. Open on race, Kind of a jock but seems like a nice enough guy. He’s tall, well-built and decent looking. He’ll be dressed as a beach bodybuilder for the costume party. But he’s not an asshole, just a guy getting a drink. There is no dialogue in these spots. ALL TALENT MUST BE AT LEAST 25 YEARS OLD (for beer advertising). WE WILL BE CHECKING ID’S AT THE AUDITION.

Session Rate: $400.00 if talent is being used for one shoot day, $300.00 if talent is being used for multiple days.

Buyout: Main Characters: $1,500.00 for one year usage. Secondary Characters: $1,000.00 for one year usage.

Usage: For Canada only, all electronic media (TV, cinema, non-geogated web, stadium, industrial)

Shoot dates: Thurs. 2/27 – Mon. 3/3 with a possible weather day on Tues. March 4 (secondary characters will only be needed for one shoot day)

All talent must work as an Austin local hire and be able attend audition in Austin.

TO SUBMIT: Please email a current photo along with your contact info and who will be able to attend the audition with you (if selected for an audition) to burtoncasting@gmail.com
