Youtube DIY Series - Host and Talent Needed

A new home improvement/instruction series targeting the DIY audience of home improvement, is now in pre-production and we are looking for several vital personalities. Shows will be filmed in various regions of the country 1-2 weeks on location, and each set of instructional videos, will feature a host and a different guest DIY'er, who will discuss tips and tricks for the specific project being constructed.

This is for a national company and the videos will run on the company’s social media and YouTube channels. Pay is standard market rates for on-screen talent, and travel costs and accommodation are fully covered.

Who exactly are we looking for? Bright, articulate people with enough skill to take on some home improvement tasks. Ideally, the successful candidates will have a positive attitude about solving problems as well as curiosity about how to design and construct home building projects. The task for the guest and the host will be to keep the content compelling for the viewer while helping the DIY audience to be informed of how to properly conquer various facets and/or specific tasks of each build project. This will be a hands on all the way, comfort with the use of power tools is essential. Age range Mid 20"s to late 30's Male and Female.

The Host:

Knows the difference between a table saw and a hand saw and can change the blades of a saw quickly and smoothly, and can explain why certain tools are used to do specific tasks. The key is that the host has the personality to talk about what he/she is doing as the task is being performed. We don’t anticipate that the on-screen tasks will require a huge amount of physical activity, but the host has to be nimble, dexterous and able to explain processes while working with a tool in his/her hand.

The Guest:

Someone who wants to improve their own home and can ask critical questions about how to pursue his or her ambitions to improve their house. The guest needs to be comfortable working with power tools, and they must have an enthusiastic personality, to ask questions and improvise on the spot with humor and insight. Energy and wit are absolutely critical to this role, and it’s safe to say we’re looking for somebody who might suggest a sprinkle of stardust.

The auditions are planned for mid-October in northern VA location, and the shoot locations will involve a one - two-week stay in a variety of regions in the U.S. The shows will have an outdoor component, but it’s safe to say we won’t be filming in snowstorms. There will be a subject matter expert on site, some scripts, improvisation will always be encouraged, and we intend to make this production a vehicle for both the sponsors product line and the new stars who connect with our nationwide audience.

The sponsor is a national brand, and respondents who audition will be asked to sign non-disclosure agreements. Compensation is market rates, travel costs are covered, and this will be a chance for the right people to excel and make their mark. Personality, personality, personality and ambition.
