About the company:

Lifelike develops highly immersive simulations based on artificial intelligence and interactive cinema.
We believe the total and complete emotional engagement of the user is necessary to obtain effective training results.
Our simulations improve people’s automatic behaviors because they allow the user to gather experience from continuous and contextualized feedback in a highly realistic, unpredictable and dynamic simulation environment. Our simulators provide an immersive life-like environment where the user is invited to interact with a counterpart (a real actor) to achieve a specific, declared, target.

About this project:
We will have a new bundle of simulators to shoot this autumn for a Belgian client and we are looking for actors able to play in a really natural and realistic way.
They need to act like real people in the real life, this is really important for us because it’s crucial for the product effectiveness.
During the days of the shooting we shoot different alternative stories so we need good talents capable of acting with different intentions, performing all the different real life “shades” even if the dialogue sometimes doesn’t change.

Budget
These are our standard budgets, usage rights included:
400,00 euro for one day of shooting (this is the rate for this project for the female actors)
700,00 for two days (this will be the rate for this project for the male actor)
900,00 for three days

Agency fee: 10%
Payment are usually on 60 days EOM with direct invoice to the agency or, depends on local workers law, a receipt from the actor for his fee plus a separated invoice from the agency for agency fee.

Shooting details
The shooting will be in our studio in Northern Italy in Sulbiate (close to Milan): we use a green screen and we have a teleprompter.
