Paid Performance For Tv – Shooting August 12 & 13

Bolin is a marketing and advertising agency founded in 1950. We are excited to be creating a TV commercial for a local walk-in closet manufacturer for web, social media, and television. We are even more excited to be looking for one Minnesota-based dancer to feature in the commercial.

Concept

The commercial will feature one dancer, moving within the enclosed space of a sizeable walk-in closet. During the course of the performance we’ll be asking the dancer to interact with the closet itself ( opening drawers, opening cabinets etc) and the clothes contained within it. Generally, the performance will be upbeat, positive, and have the dancer “dance” their way from undressed (no nudity) to fully dressed.

Booking Dates

The dancer will be required for one day of technical rehearsal
and one day of shooting. Both will occur in Minneapolis.
TECHNICAL REHEARSAL IS ON TUESDAY AUGUST 11.
FILMING IS ON WEDNESDAY AUGUST 12.

Initial Audition/Casting

We are asking dancers to submit auditions via video. Dancers are asked to film themselves in an enclosed space of their own home, interacting with that space as part of their performance. Filming in a kitchen, bedroom or a walk-in closet would be ideal. We would suggest using an upbeat track like Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” or Marion Hill’s “Down.” Dancers are then asked to send their video to Bolin via the email below. Sending a link to a private, uploaded video on YouTube or Vimeo would be preferable. However, we will do our best to accept the submitted videos in any form. The video can be edited, or shot as one continuous clip.

Call Backs

Call backs will happen on August 5th via Zoom. Dancers will be contacted individually to schedule a 10-minute call-back. The successful dancer will be notified as soon as possible after August 5th.

Who We’re Looking For

We’re looking for a female dancer between the ages of 20 and 40, proficient in hip/hop, street-style, modern or contemporary dance, or any combination of those styles. We’re looking for dancers confident interacting with objects, moving in semi-confined spaces and who can improvise and have fun.

REQUIREMENTS

Highly Skilled Dancer
Choreography Experience
Modern Hip-Hop / Contemporary

Payment

WE ARE OFFERING A

Covid & Filming

We will be maintaining a strict Covid-safe production. Everyone on set (other than the dancer during live filming) will be required to wear a mask and maintain a distance of 6 feet at all times. We will be running a small crew, a closed set, and have full control of the studio and location (we own the building!).
