Casting Opportunity from Pixcom Productions

 

 

Hi Everyone

 

We received this email and thought we’d share it with all of you.

From: Harriet Luke <hluke@pixcom.com>

Subject: Pixcom Productions – Development/Casting
Cc: Taeo Soleil Levine <taeolevine1@gmail.com>

I just wanted to follow up on our conversation re: the show we have in development right now with CBC, that you might be able to help us with!

Just to recap the series will feature a group of individuals with disabilities who are super eager to get a job in the restaurant industry, but have struggled to do so. They will be put through a training course with a top head chef in order to learn the skills needed to work in a restaurant and set them up to enter the workforce!

We are looking to cast people with a wide rage of disabilities, ideally people who are starting out in their careers (18 –  25  years old). We are looking for people who have a positive attitude, an outgoing personality, and who would be capable of working long days and can communicate effectively. They can be located anywhere across the county.

Any leads would be greatly appreciated! At this stage we are just looking to speak with people on the phone and do Skype interviews. Taeo, cc’ed here is heading up the trainee casting, and will be in touch as well.

Look forward to hearing from you and don’t hesitate to give me a call if you have any questions!

Chat soon,

Artists with Disabilities – Invitation!

Hello Friends,

We are sharing this on behalf of our volunteer  & Support Staff Zoe Stark.

She recently become acquainted with a wonderful organization that is holding an event in Toronto in May. They have asked her to help them find artists to round out their collection in order to represent different demographics and communities. She is reaching out to DramaWay in hopes that some of our Artists or someone that you are in contact with, knows of any artists with a disability who would like to get their art out and seen, and also make a little cash!

If you are interested, please, please e-mail Zoe as soon as possible (they are in a bit of a time-crunch), even more preferable email her and attach a picture of an art piece/pieces the Artist has created and is willing to sell.

A bit about Time Raiser:

“Timeraiser150 is a Canada 150 Signature Project supporting emerging Canadian artists and nonprofit organizations.  10 Timeraiser150 parties in 10 provinces allow Canadians to bid on original art by investing volunteer time, not dollars, to causes they care about.  Each Timeraiser150 pulls out all the stops to throw a great party – from live performances to delicious local food and drink. Timeraiser is truly a celebration of creativity and community! Artists are paid for their work, nonprofits find skilled volunteers, Canadians find meaningful volunteer opportunities.
