NON-UNION casting - I will be seeking 2 actors in the NYC area, for a one day shoot either May 2 or 4. Only one talent on set, crew members will stand 6 feet apart and wear masks and gloves. No speaking lines, will be actions only, e.g. showing how contactless turnstiles work (in a new building), 30's age men and women who can supply their own professional corporate wardrobe and come HMU ready. Pay is $500 per talent for the one day shoot (in perpetuity). The architecture firm has many safety protocols in place already as they continue construction and this will be a video they will distribute to their employees for when they resume work in May, and it could be on their website as well. I will post on casting sites but you can also send photos (in corporate attire) to amerifilmcasting at yahoodotcom with CORPORATE (and your NAME) as the subject line. Please note if you are available both days as of now, but it will just be one. 30's, non-union.

Music Video Audition early 90s

I hope everyone is holding up okay, wherever you are. As there's no production casting to post about, I thought I'd share some more of my "casting collection" I've saved over the years. I have many VHS tapes of auditions from the late 80's on - here's a quick snippet from a Blind Melon video I cast - I remember I had to look for side show type performers, so a lot of people came in who worked the Coney Island show - here's a fire breather who came in to the old loft space I was using at Broadway and Bleeker (everyone had to climb the 100 steps to enter) - I'm not sure what I was expecting but you can hear my surprise!

January 1, 1990 I moved to Philadelphia for a few months to cast the background and some local day players on ROCKY V. I can't believe it was 30 years ago. A lot has changed in the casting world, with the internet, but it's still about filling those empty seats. We had to get thousands into the stadium for the big fight scene. We hired someone to coordinate a raffle for the many who came for free, and we had to hire hundreds for pay - and the non-union got $50 cash at the end of the day. Talk about a long line to check out! The staff photographer got this of me with Burt Young in the stadium, gave me a copy later and Burt signed it to me.
Happy New Year everyone!

JULIAN, 36, to play Jewish, handsome but not pretty. Very reserved and measured but harbors a lot of hurt and resentment on the inside. He is also compulsive and obsessive to the point of self destruction. He lost his job shortly after he lost his wife. Befriending a child he assumes a father figure that gives him self esteem. His potential as a human being is immense. He has a dry sense of humor.
