SALSA CUSTOMER SELF TAPE INSTRUCTIONS
In a close up slate your name and location
Let us know if your passport is good to go and up to date.
Let us know if you are fully vaccinated or if you have a qualifying medical or religious exemption.
Tell us how you relate to the role you’re playing (are there any types of food you specifically love and test out regularly)
Then give us a full body shot.
Take 1. Keep it real, easy going but thoughtful. Medium shot (waist up) Imagine you’re in your home kitchen shopping on your phone for salsa (you’re a connoisseur after all), looking through the options, thinking about what’s missing from your kitchen. Pick a salsa on your phone that you’re interested in and click the “buy” button on your phone.
Take 2. Imagine the salsa has arrived, you just got it delivered, open up the bottle and put some of the salsa on a chip, taste it… it’s satisfying. (Keep the reaction real, simple, not over the top at all).
If you have a reel of your past on camera work, commercial or legit, we’d love to see it. Send a link if you do. Not at all a problem if you don’t.
