Lynchburg – Casting Call for Pocket Testament League Videos – Jan 29-Feb 2 – Paid

Production Company: Hello Studios
Director: Adam Everett Miller
Casting Director: Alex Miller
Description: The Pocket Testament League is hosting a special weekend event to raise awareness of their ministry and Hello Studios is creating a series of engaging, impactful videos for them to showcase their history, mission, and membership testimonies. These videos will cover a variety of scenarios that will be filmed over the course of a few days. We are seeking a diverse group of actors who can tell their stories visually as these films will be using voiceover narration instead of regular dialogue. This Olympic Games ad from 2014 gives a rough idea of what we are going for: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQoJqDi8490
