This is the self submissions page for the COMCAST “READY FOR THE GAMES” project. If you’re looking for the audition schedule page for this project, you’re in the wrong place – check your call to audition email!
WHO ARE YOU CASTING?
We need folks from the Portland and Mt Hood area with the skills/experience below:
Skiers with a lot of experience on a ski simulator (like this)
Competitive Luge or Skeleton athletes
Bartenders or Servers
Front desk or Concierge (or other hospitality) workers
Anyone our location scouts send to this page (thanks Doug + James!)
WHAT IS THIS FOR?
This will be a commercial for Comcast Business – similar to the commercial seen here, but themed for the Winter Olympics.
We’ll cast a number of actors and non-actors with specific skills (you, hopefully!) to work for a day either in the Portland area, or the Mt Hood area.
To be considered for the project, you’ll need to send us your information, along with some media (photos and video), and then we’ll audition you either during our normal auditions this + next week, or at callbacks the week of Nov 8.
