Other Actors wanted

We are looking for a male aged 55+ to play the role of an older patient who has had an accident involving (fake) chemicals.

This is for a training video for New Zealand Firefighters on how to deal with an emergency situation involving hazardous substances.

The video will be used internally for training for firefighters.

Basically in this situation, firefighters turn up, get the person out of the area with the chemicals, remove clothing with chemical on it, then wash the remaining chemical off with hoses as quickly as possible. Ambulance staff then take over care of the person.

The role is a worker in a workshop that has spilt (fake) chemical on their torso and leg and is dizzy and in pain.

They will then be moved from the workshop by firefighters, contaminated clothing will be removed and then the patient will be washed down with water.

You'll have to be acting in pain and distress and perhaps shock.

We are aiming to have the water at least at a warm temperature taking it from a pool of warm water. However there may be a take or two with cold water if we run out of the warm water. Having the ability to endure cold water for a minute or two outdoors may be required.

We will have dry clothing, trained medical professionals and heaters on hand to use straight away.

We can send you the storyboards which we are shooting if you need.

Locations for the shoot will be at Seaview in Wellington and a dress rehearsal day at Kilbirnie.

We will pay $950 for the shoot day 8am-5pm. (We could wrap earlier than this) Date is Thursday August 12th.

We will also pay $450 for the rehearsal day 9am-2pm. Date is Wednesday July 28th.

For the rehearsal day we will provide a full body wetsuit for any tests involving water. On the shoot day we will be hopefully be using warm water. Wetsuits will not be worn on the shooting day only the rehearsal day.

These prices are negotiable for the right person.

Ideally if you have an online payment option that would be great. Otherwise we can sort out payment if you don't have an online credit card option.

If you have any questions or would like more information please apply!
