Casting Call LA

You may have seen our latest post, where we updated you on the progress we’ve been making with manufacturing our own tees, and to put it mildly, things are getting real. We’re preparing to film our Kickstarter video in Los Angeles with our pals over at Sandwich Video in a couple of weeks (Thursday, June 1) and we need your help. We want to feature real Cotton Bureau customers in our video, so if you’ve ever bought something from us, are located in LA, and would like to be in our video please read on.

Here’s what we need you to do:

Check your calendar and make sure you can be free on Thursday, June 1, and have a reliable means of getting yourself to South LA that day.

Take a 30-60 second video of yourself describing your favorite t-shirt (it doesn’t have to be one of ours) and what makes you love it so much. It’s totally fine if it’s a lo-fi video taken with your smartphone or laptop camera…it doesn’t have to be professionally produced.

Send the video back to us via email to no later than next Thursday, May 25th. If you can get it back to us faster than that, that’s even better.

Here’s what you get in return:

If you send us a video submission, we’ll give you a coupon for a free t-shirt on Cotton Bureau.

If you’re selected to participate in our video shoot, you’ll get the free t-shirt coupon, $200 in cash (or like, a check or Venmo or something), one of every shirt style we end up producing for our Kickstarter project (exact details are TBD on that one), and our eternal gratitude. Also, maybe we’ll have time to grab a taco or an ice cream cone together out in LA.

We’ll be sharing all submissions with the casting and creative team at Sandwich Video and contacting those of you who we feel are strong candidates for the video. Again, we’re hoping to make this happen in fairly short order-collecting your videos by May 25th, shooting the video on June 1-so if you’re interested, don’t dilly-dally. Thanks everybody! We hope to see you in LA.
