We are looking for actors and actresses, ages 18-80, of all ethnicity’s to represent a cross section of American voters in a short web commercial.

The shoot will be taking place this Friday, 10/28, in Williamsburg off the Bedford stop on the L train. Participants will need to commit to a half hour time slot of their choosing between 10am-4pm. You will be performing a single line.

Pay: $50

If you are interested please contact us with a headshot and description of your voice quality. We are looking for some individuals with accents, but will need to know ahead of time if, and what type of accent you have.

Help us elect a president, not a party.

Thanks for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you.
