Real People, Real Communities

Casting Call – January 10, 2019
Portland, OR and Bend, OR areas

Client: First Interstate Bank

Summary: First Interstate Bank is looking for real, everyday people to be featured in a visual piece about the beautiful communities and families they serve. There are no speaking parts – you just need to be energetic and comfortable in front of the camera.

Union Status: Non-union

Type of Project: Video

Usage: 1 year online and industrial

Talent Rate: $750/day for featured talent + additional pay dependent upon other factors (e.g. use of locations, vehicles, pets, etc.)

Auditions: We may ask you some questions about your day-to-day life as we are casting real people in real environments, but we will typically cast directly from photo submissions. (So please make sure to upload great photos!)

Callbacks: TBD – Most likely January 23-25

Fittings: January 28 (Portland area talent only)

Shoot Dates: January 29-30 in the Portland metro area, plus an additional shoot day January 31 in the Bend, OR area. Talent will typically work local to the area they reside in. You’ll likely only work one day, but open availability is a plus!

Who We Need

  • Farmers and ranchers, especially women
  • Business owners and workers in real environments (e.g. auto body shops, construction sites, bakeries, creative studios, tech start ups, and so on! Please try to submit photos depicting you in your business environment.)
  • Families with young children (e.g. toddlers and infants)
  • Real couples (ages 40-65), bonus if you own a dog!
  • Little League teams
  • College students
