My Plan: film shoot in New York area

The Priesthood Department is creating a new program called My Plan to help returned missionaries transition to life after mission.  This program will help these young men and young women set goals and prepare for their future.
The Publishing Services Department is making a film to introduce this new program.  

We will be filming part of this piece in the New York area.  We need to find talent to fill the roles listed below.  While, ideally these roles would be filled by members of the Church, we will consider those not of our faith as well.

Film Description:  When they return home, missionaries often struggle to fit back into normal life and to have a plan for success.  They’ve spent so much time thinking about others, that they have a hard time thinking about themselves.  We are making a film for our missionaries, in order to inspire them to have a plan and to find happiness upon their return.  The film will be seen by missionaries worldwide.    

We are shooting a Terrence Malick (Tree of Life, The New World) style film, in which we follow a missionary home and see him engage with his family that he’s missed, job opportunities, and his future family and life.  The cinematography will be beautiful and the film will be shown to our missionaries worldwide.

Native Portuguese Speaker Needed for Washington, D.C. Temple Visitor Center Video **UPDATE

The Publishing Services Department of the Church is producing a video that will be shown in a kiosk in the Washington, DC Visitor’s Center.  The video will feature a Portuguese speaking chorister singing and leading several hymns and children’s songs.  We are casting a native Portuguese speaker who is comfortable singing and leading music.  This person does not have to be a professional singer, just confident enough to carry a tune on camera.  We are looking for someone with a fun personality!
Male or Female; age 20s-30s; native Portuguese speaker
