Female Actor / Presenter
We are looking for a Female Actor/Presenter to host a series of online video interviews with clients from across the UK, Europe and Worldwide.
The interviews with clients will be pre-recorded (via Skype) and we then require an actor/presenter to record the Introduction, Questions and Closing Statement. The client interviews and presenter recordings will then be combined in post-production.
We would require the actor/presenter to visit our office in Bristol to record a number of interviews over the course of a day. We would then need them to return at regular intervals to record further interviews. There is a possibility that once the project is working efficiently the presenter may be able to conduct their recordings from their home. The regularity of recordings will be dependent upon the number of videos produced (which is not known at this time).
You can see a draft version of what we are looking to produce below:
What are we looking for?
The ideal candidate would be:
- A warm, friendly, sociable character.
- Able to record their interview segments in a genuine way as though recorded live.
- Available to record batches of interviews in Bristol (on days to be arranged).
We are asking for a taped audition demonstrating the actors ability to talk directly to camera and give the impression of being involved in a live interview.
Due to the nature of the project (and the need to film on several consecutive days) we are ideally looking for someone living within (or willing to travel to) the Bristol/Bath area.
Examples of previous productions
Below are some example videos produced recently. These are a different format to the Cargo Cast project but help to illustrate what we are looking for.
