Requirement for Remote GSTN Actors
In order to be a GSTN remote actor, here’s what you have to be able to do.
First and foremost, you need to have spokesperson acting skills and be able to read from a teleprompter. After all, this is an audition for a spokesperson video service. If you think you have what it takes, then sign up below.
Second, if you’re accepted to the GSTN team, then you’ll need to agree to our terms and conditions for our actors. While we can’t tell you everything until you are accepted, the core of the terms are simple. Be professional and prepared for all shoots, respond to your emails and phone calls about orders quickly, and basically just do a good job.
Next, we’ll make you a page in our list of actors. Once that’s done, you’ll be officially a GSTN actor and able to accept orders from our clients. Please note that being listing on GSTN does not guarantee you any jobs. It’s still up to the clients and what they feel is best for their video project, but you can’t get hired at all if you’re not listed.
In addition to the basic requirements above, being a remote GSTN actor requires you to be able to shoot, or have someone else shoot your video for you meeting our technical requirements, then deliver the footage to us for final editing and delivery to the client. This could be in a home studio or you can have a relationship with a pro studio partner, the choice is yours.
