CASTING CALL – we’re looking for a Radical Retiree
Are you over 58 years old and looking for a place to retire but haven’t found the right spot yet? Are you looking for a change to start that next chapter of your life? Is the average retirement home not your cup of tea and you’re looking for something special? Are you comfortable in front of a camera and like to be the centre of attention?
Then this might be the right project for you.
Fathom Film is looking for an extroverted and fun-loving woman or man over 58 to be the main character in our documentary film for Zoomer Media.
“Radical Retirees” is a one-hour documentary that explores innovative retirement living arrangements, new alternatives to traditional senior-living models. Some models support aging in place, such as co-housing, aka “golden Girls living” or grassroots communities. Others involve new communities of like-minded souls – retired artists, cruise ship lovers, LGBTQ seniors, even hard-partying swingers.
Together with our small and supportive film crew you will travel to Florida, Arizona and rural Ontario as you search for the right place to retire. You will get a behind-the-scenes look at the most creative, quirky and distinctive residences and meet a wide variety of seniors at these residences. The camera will follow you as you try to make up your mind – are any of these retirement communities the right fit for you?
Filming will take place over the course of 14 days between January and April 2019. This is an unpaid gig, however all travel, accommodation, food and fun is included for free. Come for the adventure of your life!
If interested, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us a little bit about yourself and your current living situation. Also, please don’t forget a photo!
