Hiring the right actors and attaching the right sports talent to your filming or event can be what makes and breaks you. But to any producer or end client the process of finding a reliable company to source this at short notice can be quite daunting.
If you secure the right sports talent to your production or event, it can propel your brand. If all you can provide is a script/storyboard without the specialists, you won’t get so much as a glance. This is because large brands get shown creative briefs every day, if you have recognisable or distinctive up and coming talent secured it’ll seem like something worth investing in.
Where to start
First you need to build the foundations, this means creating a solid creative brief tying in the brands key USP’s. Something that’s commercial and will stand out amongst the competition. Make sure the script has been seen by people and you’ve gained as much feedback as possible.
