Casting: Las Vegas, Nevada

Hastings Castings is Now Casting for a PSA / Commercial “Hidden Weakness” in Las Vegas, Nevada!

Hidden Weakness is a Vape PSA campaign with the intent to educate teens about the risks of vaping. This campaign revolves around the topic that vaping can damage your lungs and weaken you, affecting your physical fitness / athletic abilities. Vaping can weaken even the strongest of us.

Production for Hidden Weakness will involve a video production as well as stock photography shoot.

The video takes place on a football field, where we see our hero talent and some background talent practicing football. Our main talent is strong, but we see how vaping has taken a toll on his physical ability throughout practice.

COVID19 considerations and safety protocols are being planned for including mandatory testing, social distancing when possible, PPE, temperature checks, etc.

Casting will be done entirely via self- taped auditions.
