Any one need a cool gig?

From the mail box today:

Hello I'm a talent agent in Colorado and I've been contacted by a casting director for a project they will be casting for in Colorado on May 23rd. If you have someone that may interested in this project, please have them contact me and I can set a time for them to meet the casting director. I can be reached at [email protected]

Project Name: The Guide : Real and True Expert Outdoorsman
Project Type: Pilot
Union Status: Non-Union
Submissions Due By: 5/13/2011
Rate: $2075 plus 20% per episode
Casting Dates: Saturday , may 21st
Shoot/Performance Dates: June 22nd - June 26th , not incl travel
Shoot/Performance Location: tbd , in the states
Shoot/Performance Dates Notes: possibly in Idaho

Synopsis This person needs to be a true outdoorsman and able to handle whatever sport/adventure we attempt. Extremely knowledgeable, able to handle themselves in extreme situations, and game to try anything. Sports might include, but not limited to- extreme river kayaking, canyoneering, back country skiing, rock climbing. ice climbing, mountain climbing, fishing and fly fishing, cave diving, mountain biking etc.

They have to be comfortable in front of the camera...don?t HAVE have done TV work...the outdoors part is much more important. We need this person to be authentic. A guy that people like and resonate to. Good looking but not too much so... , ruggid, the focus of the show is each this person our host (our anti-host) is kind of like the guide's "tour" ...their audience, a wide eyed and enthusiastic participant...not so much a cheezy host. I'd like them to have a sense of when to engage and when to back off... they are :ready" for the experience.

Project Notes: We are just shooting the pilot now ( cable , sports network)

This would shoot June 22nd-26th, not including travel. Travel and per diem paid for , of course. Travel all over the United States

If the pilot is picked up , our host needs to be available to shoot randomly , for 5 days per episode over the course of several months , with hopes for it get picked up for another season , where another contract will be negotiated... schedule to be worked out later , and agreed on upon all parties

us into the lives of the world?s best outdoor guides in their own words,shot in their exclusive corner of nature, with the audience and our host simply along for the

THE MASTER GUIDE takes us into the lives of the world?s best outdoor guides in their own worlds, shot in their exclusive corner of nature, with the audience and our host simply along for the ride? adventures ensue ? Explore , Experience , Escape?

We are looking for our host , or anti-host, we like to call him, he is our audience , who helps us experience this world , befriends our guide .. gets to know to the real deal?


? each episode will be 5 days not including travel

? We will only be contracting for the pilot until we get a "green light" for the entire series.

? One location per episode; no idea how far apart or close together the episodes will be spaced; very dependent on sport and season; so they will need to have a somewhat flexible work situation so they could get a week off every now and again. I would think that when we get into series mode...we'd have it all pretty well planned out.

Thank you

MB received this message rather than Christine actually posting it. You'll need to send Christine an email as I doubt she's monitoring MB.
