We are creating three 1-minute, animated documentaries sponsored by Excedrin in which headache or migraine sufferers explain their headache pain using a descriptive metaphor, and also what it feels like once relief finally sets in. We are in search of three people who suffer from migraines or headaches frequently or infrequently, but whose lives are or have been disrupted by the pain. Ideally, talent has tried and liked Excedrin to get the relief they need. If not, talent should be willing to speak positively about Excedrin’s ability to provide relief.
Each video will begin as a video interview, then transition into an animated world in which we creatively visualize the metaphor for the pain.
We’re looking for diversity in backgrounds, ages and also types of headache or migraines, and we’re looking for unique and creative ways that each person describes the pain.
For example, “it’s like someone hammering 1,000 tiny nails into my temples” or “it’s like a boa constrictor that tightens at the back of my neck and shoulders, then crawls up my head and squeezes my eyes.”
The animations will be light-hearted and not morbid while still emphasizing the pain that headaches and migraines cause.
Then, the second part of the video will describe what it’s like to finally get relief. “It’s like I’m finally freed and can float above the world on a cloud.”
To audition, please send an e-mail with your name, age, occupation and a 1-2 minute video of yourself (can be recorded on cell phone or web cam) telling us about your headaches or migraines to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pay: $75 and you’ll be expected to join us for a 1-hour interview in the Denver area the week of February 20, 2017.
