Casting Call

From time to time, Senior Planet receives requests from casting agencies, research groups and others looking for help in finding seniors to participate in paid or unpaid projects of various kinds. In our occasional Bulletin Board feature, we pass along any that look worth following up.  We haven’t fully vetted these opportunities; use the contact information provided to draw your own conclusions.  Please contact the agency or group directly (and not Senior Planet) with your questions or to get the status of your application.
