Damian Bao Casting is currently working on the Mercedes-Benz LGBTQ 2020 Campaign for Pride Month. The video, which will be directed by Jason Evans, will feature a loyal Mercedes-Benz driver who is part of the LGBTQ community. Jason and Damian also worked on last year's viral pride campaign, which was narrated by trans model Leyna Bloom and featured a diverse spectrum of the LGBTQ community in NYC. You can view it here.
We are specifically looking for a current Mercedes-Benz driver (own or lease), who is age 30+ and a member of the LGBTQI community with a history with the brand. The campaign will launch during Pride Month. It will be a video featuring talent’s personal images and videos where they will talk about their relationship with Mercedes-Benz and their life story. This campaign will not require talent to be on set as we will be remotely collecting videos, images, and audio from talent. If selected to be featured in the campaign, the talent will receive $8,000 for the use of their name, voice, and images and their time.
Potential candidates can submit their info and images to be considered for the opportunity in the link below. If anyone is having problems with the form, they can also email us their info at [email protected].
