My name is Fernanda and I’m a casting producer at Good People Casting.
I’m currently working on a commercial that films in Los Angeles. We are casting groups of 3-5 Latinx friends who will debate the spiciness of sandwiches at a national quick service chain restaurant. We are looking for a group of Gen Z Latin friends (18-27 or so) who speak a combo of Spanish and English, or Spanglish. Talent does not need to be fluent in Spanish but should be able to speak a bit of both. We are looking for diversity within the Latin diaspora and a wide variety of nationalities and accents.
I’m getting in touch because we are interested in finding a group of improv folks who know each other who would be able to be funny, riff and make the experience fun to watch.
Auditions: Now through March 2nd
Callbacks: Remote, March 6th
Filming: March 10th in LA
Pay: SAG scale
Filming would be in Los Angeles and all travel and accommodations would be provided. This is a SAG commercial, but talent does NOT need to be union.
For auditions, we just need the group to get together, film themselves having a conversation about food (maybe a few other topics) and send us those self tapes.
