Imagination Publishing is parterning with Gail Borden Library in Elgin to create a pro bono video promoting the Illinois Library system. To the tell the story of how libraries inspire young minds, we need to cast two adult actors to portray the mother of our kid hero and our kid hero in the future, after he's grown up to become a professor.
More About the Project:
- The video will shoot at Gail Borden Library in Elgin, Illinois on Saturday, Oct. 27 and Sunday, Oct. 28.
- Actors will only be needed for 4 hours or less, and likely only on one of the two days.
- Light snacks and drinks will be provided for all participants.
- Actors will not have lines to memorize, but will be given storyboards in advance and direction on set.
- The video will be used broadly online to promote the greater Illinois Library System and encourage underserved communities to visit their local libraries.
Who We're Looking For:
- Woman, age 32-38 to play the role of "Matias's Mom"
- Man, age 20-24 to play the role of "Adult Matias"
- Matias, our lead, is Latino so we're looking for Latina/Latino actors to play his mother and his future self. Please see a photo of Matias below, for reference.
- Interested actors should email their headshot (or a recent photo is fine) and resume to email@example.com with the subject line "Library Actor Submission".
- Actors will be chosen by 10/19 and the producer will share the storyboard, a call sheet and shoot schedule at that time.
