Grand Bahama, The Bahamas – If you’ve turned on the television, listened to the radio or even walked through the airport then you’ve probably seen their work. With a well-established reputation for providing creative and innovative marketing concepts, the team at Barefoot Marketing has had more than two decades of experience in sourcing the best and brightest talents for various client campaigns, from the Water & Sewerage corporation, recent #BeAHero work, to the Bahamian Brewery & Beverage Company. Now, the company is preparing to launch a new arm solely dedicated to recruiting Bahamian talent.
Launching this week, the Barefoot Talent Agency will recruit actors and models of all ages, sizes, genders, and ethnicities in addition to talented voice actors to work on its various commercials, and campaigns both local and international.
“We get asked quite a few times a year for models for various tv campaigns, photo shoots, or movie extras for international productions,” noted Barefoot Marketing Director, Sarah Kirkby. “It becomes a desperate search for people who are Bahamian, who are free at odd times and who want to do this work. Though we are based in Grand Bahama, we are looking for talent throughout the country, as projects are located on various islands in The Bahamas.”
To apply, interested talents may submit a recent photograph or comp card, a brief biography, social media handles, and other contact information as well as personal details such as age, height, and natural hair color etc.
“We are also looking at social media influencers as well,” said Kirkby. “This new form of marketing is big business in the international market as well as in our own tourism marketing, but now it’s starting to be utilized in local advertising too. Those with established followers, just starting out, or interested in this work need to send their social media information too.”
Barefoot is also in need of models for print and social media campaigns. More details can be found on the company’s social media pages where all information should be submitted. “I want to stress that we are not looking for runway or super models, we embrace all shapes, all sizes, all colour and all ages for this work. We welcome those who are extroverts and love the limelight, and that includes children’s as well. We look forward to hearing from the talented people of The Bahamas.”
