OK, it won't let me add attachments so here...

Script:


Spot #1

Do you Kasasa?
Do you have a free checking account that pays you massive interest while you make a difference?
That’s right — the hand that swipes your debit card can be a helping hand.
For cancer patients waiting for a cure. For kids whose futures aren’t so sure.
You can even keep cats and dogs out of harm’s way.
It’s easy with automatic donations that speak louder than words.
Show how much you care when you Kasasa.
Do you Kasasa?

Spot #2

Do you Kasasa?
When it comes to your finances, are you the one calling the shots?
If you have a free checking account with Kasasa 360,
it only takes one screen to connect all the dots.
Should I save? Can I spend? What’s my plan?
At any given moment, you’ll know where you stand.
On your own two feet.
With the reins to your finances firmly in hand.
Do you like your money in full view? If you Kasasa 360, you do. Do you Kasasa?

We want people with some experience in the slam/freestyle poetry/spoken word world, it’s not a stipulation, but if possible we would prefer these types of performers. We absolutely need to cast people who can take direction well. Some experience with improv is required, and definitely some experience with stage work is a plus.

We are looking for approachable, men/women-on-the-street characters but must keep in mind that it’s their performance of the poetry that is really going to be key to how attention-grabbing the spots are.

This is a fun project.  Two years ago, me(Bobby LeFebre), Matt Zambrano, Lucifury, and Katie Wirsing shot the first set of commercials.  We also did Radio voice-overs and were in some print ads.  Do it poets.
