BuzzFeed Casting Call

Seeking Parent and Child for a Toronto BuzzFeed non union video: ‘Kids and Parents Compare their imaginations with lego.

This unscripted BUZZFEED video aims to showcase and celebrate the boundlessness of a child’s imagination by having them build lego with their parents.

Looking for:
One parent with his or her child. Parent: Mom or dad, ages 38 – 46. Child: Boy or girl, ages 8 to 12. Pairings can be of any variety, as long as one parent and one kid are featured: can be mom and daughter, mom and son, father and daughter, etc.

We want kids who have a natural affinity for building with their hands and familiarity with doing so using LEGO. They should read as genuine, dynamic, inquisitive, and conversational on-screen, with natural humour from their unfiltered responses. We want their parent to read as loving, good-natured, and warm.

Here is an example of a past buzzfeed video:
