FSU College of Social Work: Call for Actors



The FSU College of Social Work is casting for a series of videos to film December 1-8.  The shoots will be 1 or 2 days each. The videos will attempt to re-create real counseling sessions and will be used as part of a larger educational curriculum being developed by the School of Social Work for instructional use. Some of these scenarios may be triggering. This is a paid opportunity. Non-Union. Florida and Georgia residents preferred.
