Project description: Forty actors are needed to play the role of a "patient" in a project collecting video data that will be used in the improvement of patient monitoring systems in medical facilities.
Seeking a variety of height, weight, age, and skin tones to optimize the data collected.
Right now we especially need actors who are very tall (71" for men and 65" for women) and actors with an 18.5 or lower BMI.
Most of the actions will be lying restlessly in bed, walking around room, etc. However, it is important to capture footage of patients needing assistance.
Accordingly, actors must be able to safely execute a simulated "fall / collapse" from seated and standing positions onto a cushioned fall pad.
COVID-19 safety protocols strictly observed; actors and all on-site staff will be masked; facilities are sanitized, bedding is changed, and there is always at least a one-hour gap between participants.
Data Use: Submissions are for technological research only and will not be publicly displayed
Must be an adult (18+)
Must have some type of acting experience (performance, on-stage, camera, etc.)
Gymnastics, martial arts, or stunt experience is helpful
Must sign COVID Entry Advisory and Declaration (see sample here)
*All actors must be paid as employees and must be eligible to work in California. Pay will be issued in cash on site. (ePay options available.) Pay rate will be $50 / hour plus a producer's transportation stipend; the total on-site in-cash payout will be $100.
