Organizers: This video is being produced by Social Security Works – Washington and the Economic Opportunity Institute, in collaboration with Reel Grrls Productions.
What: Building on the wild success of the rap video Scrap the Cap (We’re Movin’ In), we’re seeking volunteers to appear in a country music video for a new song called: “(Don’t Wanna) Work ‘Til I Die”. Once completed, the video will be posted on social media and websites all over the country by people and organizations working to protect and expand Social Security.
When: A few hours during one Sunday in April. The exact date is weather-dependent, but will be either April 12th, 19th or 26th. Volunteers will get a confirmed date and time range with several days’ notice.
Where: Orting, WA (50 mins. south of Seattle, 30 mins. southeast of Tacoma). Exact location/address will be given to confirmed volunteers.
- Personal transportation to and from the location;
- Personal clothing (some volunteers will be asked to wear work attire, others casual/weekend clothes);
- A signed media release (provided when you arrive on set);
- To be on-site for the duration of the time specified (there will be busy times, and slack times); and
- A willingness to take direction as requested by the director/producer.
You’ll Receive: A really unique and fun experience, your name in the credits, and the satisfaction of knowing you’re helping protect and expand Social Security: America’s best-loved social insurance plan!
