- For Family Play, the mom is not being shot on camera with dad + boy. We would love to cast a real family for this but are also open to matching an individual with a real dad + son.
- For the Entrepreneur spot, we would love to consider real Black families with 2 parents and 2 kids, but we are also open to a single Black mom with 2 kids or 2 Black siblings age 5-10 that will be matched with actors playing the parents who are shot at a different time and room from them.
- For Art’s Garage, there is a big chance that the father and son roles may be shot separately.
- For Birthday Party, the Latinx grandfather can be an individual since he’s not shot with the mom + son. We are super open to cast the real grandfather of the Latinx son we cast so please submit with your grandfather if you can.
