Bray Entertainment, the Co-Creators of Pawn Stars, is casting and developing a Documentary TV Series with the working title American Makers for a major cable network. We are looking to cast the key makers for the show. Each episode would highlight creations made by individual makers.
We are also looking to get some diverse cast members involved in the show and I wanted to see if you knew any women makers or makers of varying ethnicities. If you do, feel free to send along names/contact information.
We are in a time crunch from the network and we are operating around tight deadlines. If you want to be considered for the show we are simply asking for a short casting video.

Some Do’s and Don’ts of making a video:

If you are filming with an iphone, film with the phone horizontally.
Make sure to film in a well lit area
Please do not film with any music or edit with any music
Also, stand-up in the video. When you sit, the shot can look static and uneventful.
Please only send us files in .mov or .mp4
