Pro-Tip: It’s important to take an opportunistic approach to your shoots, especially when wonderful things happen outside of your control. Allow spontaneity to happen with your actors. Authenticity demands that you take an attitude with your work that coats the banalities of everyday life with an aspirational gloss.

Location Diversity: Urban, suburban, and rural interiors and exteriors.

Casting Considerations: Age, gender, and race diversity. Authenticity and diversity will play an important role in the success of your shoot. “Real” body types recommended.

Before You Shoot:
• Please check what content already exists in the Pond5 marketplace

Submission Checklist:
• Remember to tag your clips with the keyword code: HOLISEP17
