Lumber Liquidators, the nation’s largest specialty retailer of hardwood flooring is casting for 2 young adults to appear in a 5-6 minute video that will appear on our national web site.
The theme is a young couple doing an in-home DIY project, installing some flooring on a decorative wall. While no heavy lifting, some actual physical movement will be required. For this reason, the cast must be individuals who are healthy, trim, and physically fit. No actual experience is required, but a DIY / HGTV / “Fixer Upper” feel is what we’re looking for.
We need a guy & gal to appear as if a couple, so you must be willing to have fun with the other person – whom you will have only just met on the set. (No kissing, etc., just fun.) No audio, so no talking or lines will be required.
- FEMALE: 20 – 30, Caucasian. You must be fit & athletic, with an extremely bubbly personality. Very expressive looks, and a beautiful smile that you can produce at will. No glasses, contacts OK. Short hair, or, preferably, hair that will go nicely into a single pony tail, with some loose bits out. No tattoos or multiple piercings. Pay: $300 for one long day (See below.) This person will be in every shot. If you don’t like being in front of a camera, please don’t apply!
- MALE: 25 – 35, Caucasian. You must be very fit and well groomed. Short hair. Also a very positive-attitude and motivated character. And an easy-to-get, nice smile. No tattoos or piercings. Pays $250 for one long day (See below.) This person will be in most shots.
Agency fee: we can pay $100 per actor.
IMPORTANT: No fancy contract required, you will sign a release giving us full and complete rights to use the footage forever. We will pay you that very evening with a pre-paid Visa card in the full amount.
The shoot will take place in our own studio in Toano, VA, just north of Williamsburg. Call time is 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., February 1, 2017. (Rain date Feb 2. Unlikely, but possible.)
There is an ambitious shooting schedule planned, so look forward to a very full day of acting – especially for the female, who will be in every shot. Please be available to stay late an hour or two if needed. We won’t plan for that, but will add an extra $50 to the pay if we must ask it.
Lunch will be provided on set. No pets or kids, please.
To try out:
Respond via email only: Top priority will be to applicants who can send a link to some online video. It doesn’t have to be pro-video, just shoot it today out in the yard with you dancing, jogging, boxing, it doesn’t mater, just moving around. And show the smile big and clean. Pop it onto youtube or Facebook etc, and send us the link.
Include in your email a few pictures that show you in full length, perhaps in athletic attire, swimsuit, etc.
Include: Full name, phone, age, & height.
Please respond ASAP to Jeff Hillman at Lumber Liquidators marketing dept: email@example.com
Final casting will be done by January 17th.
