CASTING: ART RACE
Gallery HD and Illuminations Media in association with Barbara Barna Casting are are looking for two “Fearless, Charismatic, Passionate & Informed Artists” to take the definitive chutzpah road trip.
For over twenty-five years, Illuminations has enjoyed an international reputation as a television and media producer specializing in the arts.
They are in search of two enthusiastic, go-getter Artist/Art Racers who must cross the US in 40 days, surviving only on Art.
That’s right, armed only with art materials, cameras and a $1 dollar budget, the Artist/Art Racers must “trade” Art for food, shelter and other art -works.
Starting on opposite coasts (one in NYC and one in LA), the Art Racers’ odyssey culminates in a home-city exhibition of all the works they have created and collected along the way. The winner is the Artist/Art Racer who sells/trades the most artwork. Or at least the one who survives.
Looking for great communicators who interact well with all sorts of people and can make smart commentary as life happens. Intelligent, sassy and witty are good too. All participants must live in the New York or Los Angeles areas, be at least 21 years old and a US citizen or legal resident alien.
If this is you, please submit the following:
- recent photo (no older than 6 months)
- bio or resume
- sample of your art (photo reproduction okay)
- short essay explaining why you are an Art Racer
- be sure to include your full name, home city and phone number
Please send all ASAP to: email@example.com
**Bio/Resume & Essay should be in body of email**
photo attachments okay
ART RACE shoots May 26 – July 11 for appx 40 days on the road + up to 5 add’l shoot days & voice over.
Each Art Racer will receive $20,000 US for participating.
Production Company is Illuminations Media UK www.illuminationsmedia.co.uk
We will not sell or distribute your e-mail address to anyone else.
