Recommended Posts

Filming a commercial in Mexico...advice plx?

 

So i got an email from someone looking for stunt guys for a chocolate bar commercial. He contacted me through a site I help out with. Thing is, the email was super sketchy (misspellings and grammar, but i ended up deciding to attribute that to the fact he's from Mexico. Here's the initial email:

 

 

> > > Hello my name is Paco _______ from Mexico city, i am making a comercial for

> > _________ (chocolate), the agency is BBDO Mexico,

> > > and the production company is Distrito Films www.distritofilms.com.

> > > The shooting it will happen 22 and 23 of july but we need the guys

> > > here july 19 in the morning, and the come back on july 24

> > >

> > >

> > > I need 1 guy look like __ or __ or __ years old, (last year of _______)

> > > white or dark caucasian, no asian, no black guys

> > > I rather like guys with stunt experience but isn't obligatory

> > >

> > >

> > > Maybe you can help me

> > >

> > >

> > >

> > >

> > > Thank you very much

> > >

> > >

> > > Paco _____

> > >

> > > +[phone number]

I got this like 4 days ago-- talk about short notice. Anyway, I replied basically for fun/to be kind, letting him know what I thought about the way he came off, but was impressed by the filming company's work and so i followed through a bit.

 

Long story short, we've had about 18 or so emails back and forth. I've sent him a few pics of myself, along with a video (a sampler of sorts). He says its all expenses paid + 1,500 USD.

 

Another weird thing is i'm located in Boston, why go so far as to pay for someone from another country to come down? Surely they have people capable of what they need IN Mexico.

 

AND he hasn't replied back since the day i got it and replied. Throw that on top of how UNprofessional he sounds, it makes me wonder if i'm gonna end up bent over in front of some huge scary drug lord.

 

Advice?

Oh, sorry.

 

+/nohomo

 

Also, I'm not very familiar with these sorts of correspondences (I've done media stuff, but no actual business type things like this), so I just immediately thought that such a thing would be more structured and professional. Though I rather casual encounters.

Jesus, bad call on the buttsecks joke.

 

But good call on the contact through the site ralphy, though its all in Spanish. And i guess i sound paranoid because i'm young and have never done anything like this and have presumptions as to how it should go about.

1,500 is pretty good money considering how many hours youd likely work and you get exposure for commercial work....imagine how many pesos that would be...get a spanish english dictionary

I hate it when people dont reply to emails at all. Its really unprofessional/rude. Its like how hard is it to go:

 

"We are currently under overwhelmed with orders at the moment and and are currently unable to help you. We look forward to doung business and a later date and will contact you when we are in a position to do so. Thankyour for your time"

 

Seriously?

No, Not really. Mexicans don't do stunts or extreme sports.
