Seeking Male and Female Lead for Upcoming Music Video

We are currently looking to cast a man and a woman for a 1 day music video production, set to shoot next week (exact date TBD)

The theme of the video will be the dynamics between a man and a woman during the initial attraction phase, right up until they separate the morning after. We are shooting on location, and will shoot for one day for anywhere between 12 and 14 hours.

What we are looking for:

A man and a woman who are experienced actors. We are trying to capture the essence of what it is like to fall in love, to feel jealousy, to seize power, to be vulnerable, and to encompass all of these emotions in a shortened period of time. Acting experience is a must.

Our actors must feel comfortable with their bodies and be open to kissing another person. (Note: This video will not contain any nudity whatsoever. We are more interested in capturing the essence of a romantic encounter through facial expressions and body language). These will be details that will be discussed throughout the audition process.

Male Lead

He must be handsome and athletic. He feels comfortable with his body, and has had extensive acting experience. Having been in love is a plus. 5’8 and above. Light colored eyes is a plus. Preferably between the ages of 25-35

Female Lead

She must be pretty and athletic. She is comfortable with the push and pull dynamics of courtship. She is an experienced actress, and is comfortable with her own body. 5’5 and above. Dark hair. Having been in love is a plus. Preferably between the ages of 22-32

All food and transportation will be covered. Any footage taken from the shoot will be added to the actors reel free of charge. Actors will also receive a per diem of $50.00
