Real estate brokerage looking to cast a non-union, 3-4 minute long, real estate property tour video to be shot in the Kahala area of Honolulu. Filming to occur over two or three (8- to 10-hour) sunny days between June 9-15, 2019 (alternatively, June 16-22 if weather or casting require). Talent will be paid $20/hr + 10% agency fee, if any. Talent will be fed meals determined by call and release schedule, and receive a digital copy of final video for use in self-promotion (digital format negotiable.) We do want to pay but it’s real estate and that means a shoestring budget. ONGOING CASTING BEGINS IMMEDIATELY. THIS NOTICE WILL BE TAKEN DOWN WHEN THE ROLE IS FILLED.
ROLE: The Host
Though the role is The Host of a virtual tour, we are not interested in prior experience as a host or spokes model, nor are we deterred by it unless prior experience causes you to slip inadvertently into a performance of which you are not in control. There will be no teleprompter or cue cards. You will be playing a scripted character. Bonus points for: facility with language, ability to change intention quickly & completely, well-tuned comic timing, and the ability to connect intimately to your listener thru the camera’s lens. The character is hard-wired to be an optimist that approaches the world with humanitarian enthusiasm. He is not world-weary, coy, nor a dreamer. He considers people precious, not things. He would say, “Reverence is a pretense,” and he is not pretentious. Nor is he disrespectful and, though he doesn’t hold non-living things “dear to his heart,” he has a good grasp of their true value and respect for expense.
Host must read as grounded, informed, engaged, well-spoken, and MOST of all likable/relatable/believable/authentic (and therefore trustworthy). You will be our best friend touring us through the specifics of a $5.9M house for sale on Kahala Ave.
If interested and available, TEXT the following:
1. A selfie taken today (no need to be fabulous),
2. Your preferred style of communication (call/text/email)
3. Your name & email address
4. (Please add your cell number if you are not texting the above from that number)
