Aquarium to Hold Commercial Casting Call
July 31, 2019
PINE KNOLL SHORES, N.C. – The North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores is set to film commercials in the local area and is seeking individuals to be featured. The casting call will begin July 31 and will close at midnight August 5.
Three commercials will feature young families with toddler boys or girls, teen boys and girls, and males and females who look to be in their 20s to 70s to portray the family tradition. This opportunity is open to all ethnicities. Filming is weather and schedule dependent but is set to take place on weekends throughout August and September at the aquarium and in the local area. Each commercial will take approximately a day to shoot.
“We are interested in featuring local talent to showcase family traditions,” said Danielle Bolton, the aquarium’s communications manager. “While these are unpaid positions, this is an exciting opportunity to see the aquarium afterhours and behind the scenes, as well as participate in special activities such as kayaking and paddle boarding.”
Those interested in participating in the commercials can send pictures to [email protected]. Participants do not need professional headshots but should submit clear images of the individual’s head and shoulders, as well as a full body picture. In addition to their photos, individuals need to submit their height and contact information – name and phone number.
Photo submissions do not guarantee a spot in the commercials. Selected actors will be notified by phone no later than Friday, August 9.
