SEEKING AMATEUR BREWERS FOR NEW TV SERIES
« on: March 20, 2014, 01:34:44 PM »
Are you insanely passionate about making beer?  Are you an amateur brewer who competes? Are you part of a group of friends, social club, or family who brew together? Do you devote every waking second (or all of your free time) to making beer?

A major cable network and Part2 Pictures, an award-winning documentary film and television company based in New York City have teamed up to develop a quality TV show about the fun, competitive world of amateur beer brewing. 

We are currently casting people who represent the wide-range of folks making beer – especially those of you who are very active members of a brew club or beer brewing group.  We’d love to speak with you to learn more about the where’s, how’s and why’s of brewing beer.
WE ARE SEEKING:
•   Amateur brewers who participate in competitions (or will be entering their first competition)
•   Members of a social brewers club who brew together
•   Colleagues or friends who are part of a brew team
•   Siblings or a whole family of brewers
•   We will also consider individual brewers not part of a cohesive group
•   Brewers with a “friendly rivalry” – or who have someone they’ve been dying to outbrew
•   We are open to people who have been doing this for many years or just starting out, or amateurs who have the dream of going pro
•   We are interested in people who just LOVE beer
•   Big personalities and huge passion for making beer a must!
If you fit the description or know someone who does, please email: casting@part2pictures.com with the following info:
•   name, email and phone number
•   a recent photo of yourself and your “brewmates”
•   where you live
•   why you love making beer
•   how long you’ve been brewing beer
•   describe your group (or indicate if you brew and compete on your own)
•   your local brew club (if applicable)
•   details of the competition circuit (how many competitions you participate in, when you will be next competing, etc.)
•   describe the type of beer(s) you make and why you think it’s the best!
•   why you’d love to participate in a show about beer brewers

About Us:
Part2 Pictures is a reputable television company that has produced a variety of high-quality documentary programming for OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network, National Geographic, the Discovery Channel, PBS, The History Channel and other major broadcasters. We are committed to telling great stories about people, their take on a world and how they operate within it.

Thank you!

That sounds like fun but I clam up when there is a camera around, so no thanks.

A year or so ago, the AHA hooked me up with auditions for a reality series about people who are passionate about their hobby.  I made it through the first couple rounds of auditions, but finally decided it wasn't for me when I discovered that my wife and I had to act like we were fighting about brewing.  Just couldn't fake that.

yeah, that wouldn't fly particularly well. I suppose we could fight about having to pretend to fight! although both my wife and I are recovering actors so maybe we CAN pretend!

Hi all-

This is a legitimate request. They have already been vetted by our PR Firm, and they simply requested that we post this information. If you are interested, please contact them. We are just serving as a way for them to get the casting call out.

Cheers,

I sent a top of my head sort of response and just got off the phone with William from www.part2pictures.com.

Had fun talking about that which I am so passionate about and we will do a Skype session next week. No biggie either way, and I gave him some other "larger than life" sort of characters that I have meet. Denny was on my list but I just read his response so I deleted him :-)

Hey, I'd be happy to talk to them.  Maybe they're not like the other guys.

I spoke with him earlier and he stressed that they were specifically NOT trying for a Jersey Shore sort of dynamic.
