Auditions for Agricultural Careers Video Shoot to be Held

LAS CRUCES -- New Mexico State University's agricultural communications department will hold auditions for parts in a video shoot about agricultural careers at 9 a.m. August 6, in the Social Living Center of Gerald Thomas Hall.


The department is developing a multimedia kiosk to include shots from the video taping for the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum in Las Cruces.

Nine people are needed to play parts associated with careers in the agricultural industry including a geneticist, a rancher, a veterinarian, an agricultural teacher, a wildlife conservationist, and a computer graphics artist. Males and females, ages 19-55, from diverse ethnic backgrounds are being sought.

A teenage boy also is needed to serve as an on-screen host. One man and one woman are needed to provide Spanish audio narration.

Actors should bring a resume that lists acting experience and current contact information to the audition. Actors will read from one of three scripts provided by the department. Scripts for the video shoot are available from the department and also will be available the day of the audition.

Successful candidates will be needed either Aug. 12 or Aug. 13 for the final video shoot. Pay for the shoot will be negotiable. All selected actors will receive a videotape of their final, edited performance. Travel expenses will not be reimbursed.
