Ad Council PSA Nationwide Open Casting Call for Real People

graduation

An upcoming Ad Council PSA nationwide open casting call for real people.

Casting directors are now casting actors, models, and talent to work on scenes filming on an upcoming public service announcement filming from home.

Producers are seeking the following types:

  • GROUP 1
    People in the middle of their careers, who needed to/wanted to find something different to do. Perhaps someone who went to a trade school, P-tech or an apprenticeship. They might possibly be working in tech, a hospital, aircraft mechanics, an electrician, etc.
    – Men/Women, 40s-50s who had to make a mid-life pivot and are currently working in a new career
    – Men/Women, 30s-40s who unexpectedly lost their jobs and had to change direction.
    – Men/Women, late 20s-30s, who were unhappy with what they were doing and decided to completely change their careers.
    – Open to other stories of how/why people made mid-career changes.
  • GROUP 2
    People who chose an alternative path right out of high school.
    – Men/Women, 20s, maybe even early 30s. Example stories:
    • Someone who decided the family business wasn’t for him/her and chose a different route.
    • Someone didn’t feel like a traditional 4-year college was the right path for him/her.
    • Open to other stories of how people who hadn’t yet begun careers chose an alternative path.
