We are searching for people SEPARATED BY DISTANCE IN NYC & SF to appear in a commercial for a major tech company.


GREAT PAY – $6,000 per person!


We’re looking for pairs of people where one is located in San Francisco area and one is in NYC area (within 100 miles of either city) – who are separated by CoVid, but are connected and stay in touch from across the country.


Seeking those stories that really move someone emotionally; looking for stories that make you feel.


We are looking for really special stories, including but NOT LIMITED TO: 

•  College student separated from their family

•  Ex-roommates who haven’t seen each other since CoVid

•  ASL speakers and those who are deaf / those who use ASL to communicate

•  LGBTQ+ couple separated due to CoVid

•  A family with a new puppy

•  A grandparent that is not tech savvy but has communicated with you w/video chats

•  Grandparents who have yet to meet their first newborn grandchild

•  Twins that have been separated because of CoVid

•  A Down syndrome person who is separated from a loved one

•  Long distance family relationships

•  A First Responder who is separated from their newlywed spouse

     … or ANY pair of people separated by distance in NY & SF with a moving story about their separation.


We’re looking for people who haven’t seen each other face to face for at least 6 months – each pair should know each other well and have a built in relationship.  They should have stayed in contact using the many technologies currently available (video chat, phone calls, etc.) – i.e., they should NOT be estranged.


Beyond just knowing each other, we’re prioritizing quirky, unique characters with interesting relationships or stories.


Seeking all sexes, all ethnicities, all ages, physical abilities, and backgrounds – ideally reflective of the diversity found in both cities.


Interviews/Auditions:  Monday March 15th and Wednesday March 17th, 2021 with the pair, via Zoom

Callbacks:  Friday March 19th, 2021 with director via Zoom

Filming:  One day on either March 24th or 25th at a studio simultaneously in NYC and in San Francisco.

Status:  Non-Union

PAY:  $6,000 per person  ($1,000 each for filming, PLUS $5,000 each buyout if used in final commercial)


Additional info:

–  You can NOT have flown in the 2 weeks previous to filming.

–  You will be required to have a CoVid Test and test negative for final consideration for booking (testing to be provided by production).


NOTE:  Regarding Covid-19 safety protocols, please note that all in-person filming will be done in accordance with all federal and local standards set by the CDC at the time of filming.


We’ll be casting several pairs, so feel free to forward to others you know!
