NETHERLANDS: casting various actors for paid educational shoot in Amsterdam in English and Dutch
About the project:
This film will represent a “case study” inspired by real events and will be used to teach leadership courses. This approach is groundbreaking for the field of management education, and will transform how learning is experienced and internalized. The film will be distributed through outlets such as Harvard Business Publishing and will be purchased by educators around the world for the purpose of teaching in executive education and MBA programs. Therefore your performance as an actor in this film will be watched (and re-watched) by MBA students and by managers around the world.
Clara is a successful CFO (Chief financial officer) for the Romanian office of Crossroads, a major worldwide financial corporation. She is promoted to CFO for the whole Crossroads Europe region, based in the Netherlands. But once she arrives in Amsterdam, none of the leadership tools she had used before seem to work. Her team, her peers and her boss behave differently than she had expected, the job is much more complex than anything she’d done before. She persists, working very long hours and upholding her high standards (or what she considers as such), yet she seems to sink lower and lower. Will she yield, maybe admit she had aimed too high, find a less demanding job? The solution takes an unanticipated shape, forcing Clara to reconsider her approach to leadership and the very core of who she thought she was.
