How to become a model in New York City

Be the lead's shadow: Casting call for stand-ins in exciting feature film.

Lights, camera, action! If you've ever dreamed of being part of the magic behind the scenes of a feature film, here's your chance to shine. An exhilarating opportunity has just emerged for aspiring actors in New York – a casting call for Stand-Ins in an upcoming feature film set to be shot in Orange County. The film, directed by the talented duo Amy Hutchings and Heidi Eklund, promises to be an enthralling and dynamic project that you won't want to miss out on.

Being a Stand-In is no ordinary task; it's a vital role that contributes to the seamless creation of cinematic masterpieces. As a Stand-In, you'll step into the shoes (well, more accurately, the shadow) of the lead actor. During lighting and camera setup, your presence will ensure that scenes are flawlessly framed and ready for their moment in front of the lens.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, involves several key responsibilities:

  • Body Double Brilliance: You'll act as a body double for the lead actor, meticulously mimicking their movements and positioning during rehearsals and setup.
  • Collaborative Genius: Working closely with the director of photography and the camera crew, you'll help achieve the perfect camera angles, lighting, and scene composition.
  • Patience in Abundance: With extended periods of setup and lighting adjustments, patience will be your virtue.
  • Consistent Charisma: Maintaining consistent physical characteristics and appearance is crucial – think height, build, ethnicity, and yes, even a bald head.
  • Effective Communication: You'll be the bridge between the production team and the lead actor, ensuring adjustments and concerns related to the stand-in process are effectively conveyed.

Do you meet the specified requirements and are eager to dive into this remarkable film production? Here's what we're looking for:

  • Height: 5'10" (178 cm).
  • Ethnicity: Hispanic Male.
  • Bald Head: Embrace the sleek look!
  • Availability: Weekdays from 8/28/23 to 9/5/23.
  • Mirroring Maestro: You've got the talent to closely mimic the lead actor's movements.
  • Patient Prodigy: Prolonged periods of standing and waiting are no challenge for you.
  • Experience Enthusiast: Prior stand-in or on-set experience is a plus, though not mandatory.
  • SAG-AFTRA Enthusiasm: While SAG-AFTRA membership is preferred, non-union actors might just find their way through the doors under the Taft-Hartley Act.

Your efforts won't go unrewarded. Here's what you can expect:

  • Compensation: A generous rate of $243 for an 8-hour workday.
  • Agreement: This project falls under an Interim Agreement with SAG-AFTRA.
  • Opportunity for Non-Union Actors: The Taft-Hartley Act opens doors for non-union actors to participate.
  • Perks Included: Compensation covers any necessary wardrobe and makeup adjustments needed for the stand-in role.

This is your moment to be the bridge between the vision and the screen. If you're ready to take on the role of a Stand-In and be an integral part of an exciting feature film, now's the time to shine. Submit your application, along with a recent headshot and a resume showcasing your relevant experience. The casting team is eagerly waiting to uncover the perfect candidate who will contribute their talent to bring this cinematic marvel to life.

So, are you up for the challenge? The big screen beckons, and your journey as a Stand-In starts now!
