Casting Call

16 June 2017

arvold.casting is holding an open casting call seeking YMCA members and real people ages 20–60 for a still photo ad campaign for the YMCA of the USA. We are looking to cast people of all genders,
ethnicities, and body types. Enthusiasm for group exercise a plus, no modeling experience necessary. Members of the YMCA are encouraged to attend and the general public is also welcome.

Select applicants will be chosen to participate in a photo shoot on July 13th & 14th. Photos will be featured in an ad campaign used to promote group exercise classes offered by the Y across the country.
Participants may be featured on flyers, posters, banners, YMCA websites and more!

See below for further information and RSVP instructions for the open call.


Sunday, June 25th, 2017

The Y at Edinburgh

Those who attend the open call should be prepared to have their photo/video taken and briefly interview with the casting team. Attendees are encouraged to dress in comfortable, form fitting athletic wear. Attending the open call is greatly encouraged and the only way to be considered. No appointment is necessary, but a positive attitude and the ability to quietly wait are good traits to put into practice when attending an open casting call.
