Sesame Workshop is looking for highly talented puppeteers, age 18 and over and of Arab descent, for PR appearances related to the launch of our brand-new local version of Sesame Street for children affected by the Syrian conflict. As a company that advocates diversity, we recognize the importance of representation both on and off-screen, so that children of all backgrounds can see themselves in the content they consume. Selected puppeteers must be available to travel in the U.S., Europe, and potentially elsewhere, starting in June 2019. Proficiency in English required; proficiency in Arabic preferred.
If you are familiar with the Sesame Street style of puppetry and interested in the opportunity, please apply as directed below:
1. Make a short video (3 minutes MAX) showcasing your talents as a puppeteer following these guidelines:
i. Introduce the video as yourself.
ii. Enter and exit frame with your puppet (it’s helpful if the puppet you use has good eye focus) showing a variety of character voices (2-3 minimum). Please note: we want to see your original character voices, not existing Sesame Street character voices.
2. Upload your video to YouTube (Private setting) and send that YouTube link along with your bio/resume.
No emails or videos will be accepted after May 15th, 2019. Please bear in mind that we will contact you with more details only if you are selected.
