Bay Area Rapid Transit commercial campaign casting call

Bay Area Rapid Transit, BART, is looking for people who use its system to appear in an upcoming TV commercial campaign. Here is what they are seeking:

● One person is a regular commuter who rides BART to work in San Francisco. Preferred age range is 25-50.

● The other person is a more casual rider who takes BART to social events.

● BART will also consider a small group of friends (3) for this commercial. Preferred age range is 20-35.

The project would require one full day of each person’s time. Filming would take place in the Bay Area and is currently scheduled for June 10, 2010. You won't get paid for your submission or for your appearance in the final advertising spots. But you will gain instant fame and the satisfaction of knowing you're helping get people out of their cars and onto BART!

Interested parties should visit to fill out an on-line questionnaire, and attach a recent digital photograph, or if possible, a video clip (5Mb limit).

The deadline for placing your entry is Friday, April 30, 2010. All entries and materials become property of BART and cannot be returned.
