CASTING CALL: Real Barbers & Boxing Trainers

by Cast Iron Studios Staff

Cast Iron Studios is seeking REAL BARBERS and REAL BOXING TRAINERS for an upcoming Adidas spot. This is a paid gig at union rates.

Submissions are due by 4pm on FRIDAY, October 5, 2018.

Casting is THIS MONDAY, October 8, 2018. 

BARBERS: Male, black or mixed ethnicity, late 20s to mid 30s, with real barber experience. Charisma and ability to improvise is encouraged. Portland local hires only.

BOXING TRAINERS: Male, any ethnicity, age range 25-45, with expert-level training experience. Charisma and ability to improvise is encouraged. Portland local hires only.

This project is SAG-AFTRA, but we will consider both union and non-union performers.

Pay starts at union scale of $671.69 for one day of shooting. In addition, there are several options for internet, new media, print, industrial, and broadcast usage, which could bring this rate up by a few thousand–to several thousand–dollars, if exercised!

Shoot is on one of the following dates: Thursday 10/11, Monday 10/15, Tuesday 10/16, or Tuesday 10/23. You must be able to fully clear your schedule for the shoot date, if hired.

Wardrobe fitting is on Wednesday 10/10 or Friday 10/12.
