Actors and Other Performers (Dozens of upcoming casting calls for studio productions)
Dozens of upcoming auditions / casting calls for all kinds of performers to participate in the many
productions being done by a respectful and high quality studio.


Position Available:
Actors and Actresses
Dancers
Singers
Models
We are also hiring for staff positions (videographer / shoot producer, video editor, special effects and motion graphics, etc.). If you know
someone in any of these areas, please do them a quick and friendly favour by letting them know about this posting.


Position Overview:
Productions include many commercials for technology products, short films, multi-episode series, photo advertisements, and possibly a rare
feature-length film. Currently all parts are on-camera.
Respectful with zero nudity for all productions, and our scripts even avoid over-sexualized subject matter.
Legitimate and paid: we know there are a lot of scams out there. These are legitimate performances: you get paid quickly, we don't request any money from you, and our studio is in a safe location.
We are directly the production company, we are not agents and the intent is to hire for our own productions (although at times we may do referrals within the industry from our list)
Award-winning productions are the aim, written by our multiple full-time studio writers and editing by our full-time video editors.
Many productions will involved visual effects and some even involve full 3d animations with motion capture acting.
Occasional opportunities to work with famous actors.
Example project: A mix of computer generated and live action as seen at www.paranoid.com/videos
Filming will range from hours to many days.
Full hair and make-up support.
The production crew is incredibly friendly.
Applying to this position gets you on to the master list for all our casting calls. You will then be emailed only the casting calls that are a reasonable fit for you.
All ages, races, shapes.


Covid Related Notes:
Casting will be contact-less, and done at significant distances (at least double the requirement). We will accommodate additional concerns.
If weather permits, it may be done outdoors.
Some roles can be done at distances. Some roles require close proximity to another actor.
If covid counts are elevated at time of filming, we may take additional measures for everyone's safety.
In short, we are taking covid very seriously.


Requirements:
Honest in your application (we confirm facts for selected candidates, misrepresentations will result in termination).
Can take creative direction without taking it personally.
Respectful to other performers and staff at all times.
Takes pride in work.
No specific requirements for industry experience. We evaluate each applicant based on merit rather than formalities.


About The Work Environment:
Friendly, non-threatening, and non-political environment.
We are a great environment for both outgoing people and those who are very shy and introverted (so long as it fits the part).
Auditions are done efficiently, performers can expect very short wait times at auditions, aiming for less than 15 minutes.
Seating available before audition, no standing line-ups.
Typically auditions will be done in front of a green-screen with cameras running.
Our productions are typically scripted by our own full-time professional writers and video edited by our own full-time, professional editors.
Many productions are in the studio and green-screen, but some shoots will be on-location.
