Genesis Studios

Genesis Studios is casting for a local injury attorney web commercial scheduled to shoot next week.

It’s an outdoor shoot, so we’re at the mercy of the weather as far as scheduling. We’re tentatively aiming to shoot next Thursday (3/18) with a 9:30am call time in Cayce, SC.

If weather conflicts with that shoot day (which we can’t predict this far out) we will likely push it to a sunny day during the week of March 22-26.

This is a half day shoot for all roles but will likely take less than a half day. For COVID safety, in addition to being outdoors, masks will be worn whenever talent are near each other or any of the crew except when on camera during a recorded take. We are looking to cast people who are local or very close to Columbia, SC. No coverage for travel expenses. Travel of more than an hour each way to participate is discouraged.

Primary Roles:
First EMT (speaking role, 1 line, wardrobe will be provided) – any race/gender, 25-45 years old, acting experience preferred – $200 rate
Victim (speaking role, 1-2 lines) – female, any race, 20-35 years old, acting experience preferred – $200 rate
Passerby (speaking role, a few brief lines) – female, any race, 25+ years old, acting experience preferred – $200 rate
Second EMT (non-speaking role, wardrobe will be provided) – any race/gender, 25-45 years old – $150 rate

Additional talent:
We’re looking for 15 background extras. All are non-speaking roles. Open to any race/gender. If couples or families would like to submit together that’s fine. Apart from people who live in the same household we will keep extras socially distanced as much as possible. The rate is $50 per extra.

All talent (primary & extras) will be paid via check within 30 days of the shoot day. All rates are flat rates; no additional compensation if submitting via agency. If you are interested & available for the tentative shoot day (Thurs., 3/18) please send a recent picture & acting resume (if applicable) to Laurie Nicholson via email at Please include the role(s) you’re submitting for in the subject of the email. If you are submitting for a primary role but are not selected as a primary please make note with your submission if you’d like to be considered for one of the background extra roles. The deadline for submissions is Tuesday (3/16) at noon (local time). To repeat, the contact email for submissions is
