I am looking for very strong, somewhat strange
This is for a 90 second Youtube film for Ballantines
whisky and we are looking for an unusual looking person but the number one
priority is the voice (they will need to recite a poem). The director is
Thomas Hilland who is amazing.
A great showreel piece (but it is paid so don’t
We will look at headshots first but you may need to
send a more specific pic than their actor photo – all will come clear when
you read the brief.

HERO: aged 25 – 55). In this film, our hero recites the poem – in what
turns out to be a bar on one of Saturns moons – while his/her drink of
Ballantines is being poured and served. It ends with our hero toasting
his/her drinking companion – which is his/hers clone. The film will be very

a space traveller or space colonist. The character of the person is

SERIOUS PERSON WITH PRESENCE IS NEEDED – although the look can also at the

This all comes down to the person, how the
combination of the recital and look works together.
* An unconventional look that feels futuristic
somehow, perhaps androgynous, mutant. This is all open to interpretation
though – A STRIKING/INTERESTING LOOK IS THE MAIN BRIEF.
* Ethnicity: White(-ish) or mixed-race.
* Can be any nationality. A strong accent is fine,
although English needs to be fluent enough for the delivery of the poem.
* Fit without being bulky muscular.
* Can NOT be a well-known face, or a person that has
appeared in many TV commercials.

let it restrict you when it comes to looks or age.
