SEARCHING FOR AUSSIE BASEBALL STARS
FOR JAPANESE TV COMMERCIAL - 2ND CASTING OPPORTUNITY
JAPCO Productions, a Sydney based casting company, are searching for a group of people for a baseball themed TV commercial for an American company's sports drink in Japan to be shot in Japan.
Story and what you have to do
There is a worldwide famous Japanese baseball player who is playing in an American Major League team.
You will have to play baseball as part of a team with him and celebrate with him when your 'team' makes a good play.
You may also be required to act as the members of the opposing team.
The shoot will take place in a stadium in Japan, likely to be in Sapporo Dome, Sapporo, Hokkaido (North-eastern most island of Japan)
At present it looks like the shoot and rehearsals will take place over 2-3 full days.
