Casting an amazing cinematic spot for a well known slightly
upmarket tea brand. Both roles have one line to say. Overall we think it’s
key that when it’s said it’s got a memorable twang to it. By memorable
twang, this might be their accent or subtle nuance in their delivery.
We’re open to regional accents. In our heads the dad is northern but
we don’t want to rule out people who aren’t northern if they’re great.
What’s important is that the delivery isn’t over egged. This isn’t a
moment of realisation or a sudden jolt to the senses. This is a subtle quiet
moment to themselves.
The line of dialog they deliver is crucial in nailing the tone of the
spot, keeping the audience with us and making them laugh.
It’s vital we believe our people. It’s imperative we AVOID the usual
kinds of people we see in adverts, NO bright white teeth with super cheesy
smiles -which I am sure are not your clients anyway. WE NEED REAL LOOKING
CAST WHO CAN GIVE US THE NATURAL, NUANCED PERFORMANCES THAT ARE ESSENTIAL TO MAKING THIS CAMPAIGN TICK
These are British ads for a British audience, so we need to make sure
your suggestions are believable as such.
