Casting call: basketball enthusiasts, this is your chance to shine on screen in Canada.

Are you passionate about basketball and have dreamed of showcasing your skills in front of the camera? Well, this is your golden opportunity! A new commercial production is on the lookout for basketball players, and they are calling all enthusiasts within the age range of 25 to 60 years to come forward.

The production is seeking individuals with intermediate to advanced basketball skills. The roles involve performing as a basketball player in various scenes, encapsulating the essence and energy of the sport. Participants will be expected to engage in on-court activities, including dribbling, shooting, and playing defense, all while following the director's instructions to bring specific scenes to life.

This isn't just about playing basketball; it's about creating a dynamic and authentic on-screen environment. Collaborating with fellow cast members and the crew is crucial to do this effectively. As such, having a solid on-court presence, confidence, and the ability to take direction well are key attributes for this role.

One of the significant aspects of this casting call is that previous acting experience, while beneficial, is not a mandatory requirement. This opens the door for pure basketball talent to shine through, regardless of their experience in front of the camera. However, being physically fit and capable of performing basketball activities without limitations is necessary.

As for the logistics, the production is based in Canada, so all applicants must be legally eligible to work in the country and able to travel to the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) for the shoot. The commitment required is for the entire duration of the shoot, including any potential overtime. This is to ensure a seamless and uninterrupted filming process.

Now, let’s talk compensation. The pay range for a single day of filming is quite attractive, ranging from $675 to $2,175. The final payment will depend on various factors like the role assigned, experience, and the number of shooting hours. The package might include perks like meals and transportation, subject to the final agreement.

In summary, this casting call is an exciting opportunity for basketball players who want to experience the thrill of commercial filmmaking and earn a substantial amount for their participation.
