COMMERCIAL CASTING - FRI 28th AUG - LONDON (UK)

BUSKERS! - STREET MUSICIANS/SINGERS ONLY

I am a London based Casting Director working for a Spanish Film Production Company.
We are making a commercial which will be filmed in Spain during 4th - 7th September.
I am looking IN LONDON ONLY for several street musicians/buskers to be featured in the commercial.

the job: This is a commercial to be filmed in MADRID (Spain) in early September. At least 3 or four acts will be featured in the final commercial

what we are looking for:
Genuine street musicians / buskers
Artists can be any age, sex or nationality
You can be a solo artist or play in a small group
We would be particularly interested if you use any unusual instruments - but this is not strictly necessary

If called in – what will you be asked to do at the casting?
Perform your own take on a classic and well known song, the actual track has not been decided on yet but it will probably be something by Eric Clapton, The Beatles or David Bowie…. PLEASE NOTE: All artists will be asked to sing the same song

dates - if you get the job
Friday 4th Sept leave London - fly to Madrid
Sat 5th Sept wardrobe fitting & rehearsal with the other musicians
Sunday 6th Sept filming the commercial all day
Monday 7th Sept filming the commercial all day
Tuesday 8th Sept leave Madrid - fly back to London

We will be paying each individual artist a fee of 3,500 euro (approx £3,000 sterling) This is for 1 x year’s usage on Spanish TV & Radio plus the Internet.
The production company will also pay for all travel, flights, hotels & food.

interested?
If you think you could be right for the job please email the following details
1) A RECENT PHOTOGRAPH
2) YOUR FULL NAME, CONTACT NUMBER/S & EMAIL ADDRESS
3) YOUR LOCATION - YOU MUST BE ABLE TO ATTEND A CASTING IN LONDON on FRIDAY
4) THE TYPE OF MUSIC YOU NORMALLY PLAY
If we can see any clips of you performing online or if you have a website or a myspace/facebook page with photos or film online please include any links

Please email your information to: buskerscasting@ntlworld.com

what happens after you send us the info?
we will contact you by telephone, ask you to learn a particular song and arrange a time for you to attend the casting on Friday. We will then email you the address for the casting. You will need to confirm that you have a full UK passport OR that you are entitled to travel freely within the EC

As we are expecting a big response to our search unfortunately we will not be able to contact everyone by return - If you have not received a call by mid day on Thursday 27th August it means we will not be calling you in for the casting but we would like to thank you in advance for your interest.
