New projects on schedule for MermaidHunter.Com and Mermaid Hunter Magazine and the need for new talent is pressing. Below outlines a program to attract new out of town models to audition in Key West, Florida.
The Preposition: What do I Need to Know ?
- Mermaid Hunter will contribute $100 for gas, tolls and fees, MH will pay for a 2 night stay at the Key West, NYAH hotel. MH will also give candidate an open tab at Harpoon Harry’s restaurant during your visit. A brand-new bicycle will also be provided.
- This offer is valid only for the candidate. If candidate wishes to bring a friend, friend must bear all personal costs for travel, lodging and meals.
- Audition will take 4 hours on Day 1 and 4 hours on Day 2. Before / After audition is candidate’s free time to explore KW or just relax on a beach.
- No Nudity
- Underwater modeling is focus of audition. You must be a waterbaby and please expect getting water up your nose.
- IMPORTANT… It is expected the candidate will be able to hold her breath for 1 minute, be in excellent health, and be able to work/look/pose comfortably underwater. In the past some models have used this type of promotion just to visit Key West on my dime; when it came to going underwater they looked like a dying blowfish – I sent them home immediately without pay. I will do this again in your case if you are scamming me. IF YOU ARE NOT A WATERBABY THIS GIG IS NOT FOR YOU.
- If you excel during the audition – you could be asked to extend your stay if possible.
- All filming will be done on video not still photography. All audition footage will be edited into a short film and placed in the Media Library where possibly in the future it could be put up for sale.
- A full pro model release will be signed before audition begins.
- After audition model will receive 3 portfolio grade images and a copy of edited film if produced. But best of all… a chance to return for more filming at a pro level hourly rate.
- Hotel and Studio are 1 block from each other and easily within walking distance to Duval Street clubs, shopping, etc. Studio is 1 block from famous Harbor Walk.
