Below is the full breakdown to give you a sense of what we are looking for and the money talent could earn if selected to appear in the commercial.
This is a NON-UNION breakdown for a “regional fast food project”.
Run: spot market Southeast, no majors. 1 year (includes Internet)
Shoot dates: Either 2/3 & 4 or 2/4 & 5
Breakdown on talent fees:
$750 session fee +10% agency fee (there will likely be 2 session fees for each puppeteer except Chik)
$2000 buyout +10%
$250 per travel day +10% (if they have to travel)
Talent will likely be doing 2 spots.
Shoot will be either in NY or LA.
We are looking for PUPPETEERS with experience.
They will be rod puppets, so hand moves the mouth and rods control the arms/legs. They will be speaking, as well.
Puppeteers will be playing roles as follows:
He’s a 30ish MALE who’s casual but quite observant. Not one to be taken for a ride, he’s savvy enough to see through the BS out there, but fun-loving enough to go along with the joke when it’s worth his while.
She’s a 20-something FEMALE, strong, smart and sassy, this female character is no pushover. She calls it as she sees it and doesn’t pull any punches, wise beyond her years.
He’s a MALE, open age, both streetwise and stylish, Fries is an urban upstart brimming with confidence (and occasionally chili cheese). True to his form, he’s hot as can be, and just a bit salty from time to time.
Country Fried Krystal:
He’s 20’s-30’s MALE, naive and innocent, CFK is a bit of a rube who’s sort of the “country mouse” to Krystal’s relatively more savvy “city mouse.” He’s new to town, but immediately likeable.
ALL ARE PLAYING SOUTHERN CHARACTERS AS THIS RUNS IN THE SOUTHEAST.
Please submit on behalf of puppeteers or have have individual puppeteers submit to [email protected] at your earliest convenience. We’ll be holding auditions this Wednesday, 1/27/16.
PLEASE INCLUDE TALENT’S RELEVANT EXPERIENCE (RESUME, BIO, ETC)
