Also remember to attach a CURRENT headshot and full length photo in your submission.

Please make sure your photos do NOT have a filter – these roles are selected by the director and we cannot submit filtered/Snapchat pictures. Photos must represent your current look.

In order to help us find your submission easier, please use the words in quotes (below) as the subject line of your email.


“NIGHT GAME” – Seeking African American boys, 12-15 years old, to play basketball for a nighttime scene.

You must be available on both of the following dates:

-Wednesday 10/21 – pre-employment testing ($75 / half day’s pay)

-Saturday 10/24 – filming ($150/8)

You do not need to have basketball skills for this scene – it’s just a fun pickup game between the neighborhood kids. This casting is third-party and is not affiliated with Latitude or any other company.
