Calling All Air-Heads

It’s like Six String Nation without the strings or the Canada, but thanks to the promotional needs of the film industry, you too can profit from the release of Air Guitar Nation.
The film follows contestants through the first ever US Air Guitar Championships and onward to the World Championships in Finland. To get the word out, Maple Pictures is looking for a couple of over-the-top Air Guitar Gods to practice their craft at select intersections, events, screenings and pub nights across this great city of Toronto. You can even demonstrate your superior rocking skills at Canadian Music Week.
To be cast as air guitar god(dess), you:

  • can be either male or female or anything in between.
  • will be experienced in the wholehearted strumming of nothing
  • will be available between March 5th and 16th, as duty calls
  • cannot belong to ACTRA
  • it’s not stated explicitly, but we think it self-evident that air-keytarists need not apply.

Accompanied by a boom box and decked out in “full Air Guitar garb,” you will then pretend-pick, gyrate, and high kick your way to local celebrity status, prompting all who behold you to exclaim, “Hey, there’s that Air Guitar chick and/or dude again!”
Can you already taste the airy local fame? If so, contact Jennifer Rashwan at Maple Pictures (jrashwan at maplepictures dot com). Auditions will be held as soon as possible.
Need more inspiration? Behold the dazzling theatrics of current US Air Guitar Champion, Hot Lixx Hulahan.

Prefer to strum in the service of your own nation? Air Guitar Canada is there for you.
