Production Description

Casting young talent (ages 9-12) for a commercial and promotional shoot for Sphero, which manufactures a smartphone-controlled robotic ball. Coordinator states: “Sphero has taken this hi-tech robotic toy around the world, (Paris, London, L.A.), and President Barack Obama has even driven it around on a campaign trip to Colorado - the location of Sphero headquarters. The goal of the shoot, get kids together and having them take the ball into iconic areas and scenes in New York and just see what happens. We have some gimmicks and canned shots we want from everyone, but overall, we want to take it into NYC and explore. The more adventurous and up-for-anything attitude you have, the better. The shoot will be a lot of fun, and stills from the videos could also be used for the upcoming holiday promotion for the company. Sphero is sold in stores around the world, like Apple and Brookstone, and is looking to expand into a more global entity with the introduction of its newest model – the reason for the new promotional. What’s in it for you, other than pay? The promotions are used for YouTube videos as well as Sphero Commercials. Right now, Sphero has six videos that have over 100,000 views, and two with over 250,000 – so it's great exposure and a good resume builder. Plus the product is awesome just to mess around with and get paid to do it.”
