CASTING CALL: Dozens of People Needed for OK Tourism National SpotsCASTING CALL: Dozens of People Needed for OK Tourism National Spots
Active individuals are needed to appear in next year’s advertising campaign for Oklahoma Tourism. The commercials will air nationwide and online.
The commercials will be paid, and will include a gas allowance for those living 50 miles or more from the shoot location.
We are looking for all ages, unless otherwise indicated. We are also looking for all ethnicities. Please do not submit for a specific activity if you do not have experience with that activity.
Unlike recent years, no one appearing in this campaign will be asked to speak or sing. These are all non-speaking roles.
There are NO AUDITIONS for this commercial. We are hiring from photos only! The photos must be recent snapshots taken within the past 7 days. Camera phone photos are fine.
Although we are unable to list in print what we are able to pay each person, we will include that in the booking information if you are selected for the spot. At that point you can either accept or decline the role. But we can’t consider you if you don’t submit.
Entire families and actual couples are encouraged to submit for the project, although we are happy to consider individuals as well.
Over 100 people will be selected to appear in the commercials.
Usage for the spot will be a full buyout for all media.
