CrisisActors

CrisisActors We are specially trained actors helping first responders create realistic drills, full-scale exercises, high-fidelity simulations, and interactive 3D films.

Crisis Actors is always on the lookout for experienced, passionate actors committed to creating superior training events and programs for professional and non-traditional first responders. If you would be interested in using your talent to make our communities stronger, we would count on you to deliver intense, realistic performances of people under stress - on location, in the studio, or in a 3D motion-capture lab - while response agencies work to improve their ability to manage life-threatening incidents large and small. If you have tackled difficult topics on stage or screen, such as domestic violence, community turmoil, and risk behaviors, we invite you to join Crisis Actors, and put your heart and soul into stress-testing the people who save our lives every day: 911, fire, police, mental health, emergency medical, and school staff. After weeks of training with safety experts and first responders, the members of Crisis Actors can take on the role of frantic parents, concerned neighbors, aggressive reporters, injured victims, victims in shock, hecklers in the crowd, motorists blocking traffic, bystanders giving wrong information, victims suddenly fighting those saving them, online rumor-mongers, and more. All these roles require precision and prolonged focus, in tight coordination with all the other event activities. Besides active shooter and intruder emergencies, Crisis Actors scenarios simulate a full range of threats faced by schools, including non-custodial parents (#1 threat in many schools), teen suicide, bullying, cutting, building collapse, severe weather, HAZMAT spill, concussion, gang violence, bus accidents, and many others. We focus on exactly what to do in the first 30 seconds, in the first 5 minutes, and the first half-hour. Our events may involve hundreds of other players being tested. Crisis Actors is supported by contributions from community partners established in each state. Crisis Actors also draws on community television and other film and performing arts resources in the communities we serve. Additional support comes from individuals who want to see improvement in the way public safety protects us all. Crisis Actors does not engage actors in any real-world events. And none of the Crisis Actors performances can be presented anywhere as real. Our actors register with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for their training certificates. They undergo weeks of training with school safety experts and first responders. And they are subject to any screening requested by any of the response agencies and community stakeholders involved. All Crisis Actors activities support the use of the Incident Command System, the gold standard in coordinated emergency response, and now required by law in many public schools and charter schools. If you are an actor with exceptional talent we invite you to register on our website, CrisisActors.org, and come to one of the auditions we will be announcing on our site. We are looking for stage actors who can stay in character for long periods of time for live full-scale exercises, and we are also looking for screen actors who can deliver natural, realistic, "non-acting" performances for our recorded simulations.
