We are looking for an experienced casting producer, casting AP and senior casting researcher to secure a cast of high-flying entrepreneurs in the USA for a new documentary for a high-profile broadcaster.
We have very exacting casting requirements that mean you will have to infiltrate a very hard to reach subset of the US/global entrepreneur scene, securing substantial and unprecedented access to a group highly intelligent people who typically have very limited time and are under huge pressure in their professional lives.
Much of your time will be casting on the road in the USA. During this time you will have to recruit and interview a long list of potential subjects for the documentary, creating a long-list of at least 12 exceptionally strong candidates which will be narrowed down to 6 by the broadcaster. Some limited access has already been established in the development phase so you will be building on this groundwork.
We cannot stress enough how important it is that you ONLY APPLY if you have the right level of experience – you must have multiple high profile terrestrial casting credits and be known primarily for your casting skills rather than production skills. DO NOT APPLY IF YOU ARE NOT A DOCUMENTARY/FACTUAL CASTING SPECIALIST.
If you are shortlisted you will need to be available for an interview early next week (week commencing 17th February) and be available to start the following Monday 24th February) with travel to the USA two weeks later. If you are not available to start on the 24th DO NOT apply as we are unable to be flexible on the dates…. sorry.
This is an incredible opportunity for the right team. It requires individuals with tenacity, charm and a passion for finding amazing characters and story arcs that will make compelling primetime television.
Having an iVisa is a bonus but not essential. We also have some shorter term positions that are UK based, again only open to casting experts.
DUE TO DEADLINES PLEASE APPLY WITH CV/COVER LETTER ASAP as interviews will commence immediately.
Send a cover letter and CV to Jaime Brown: firstname.lastname@example.org>
Do not call the office. We will reply to all candidates. We are an equal opportunities employer. Thank you!
