I recently started a production company in the Chicagoland area called Infinity ASMR (although we started here, we are expanding nationwide). Yes, ASMR like the insanely popular videos all over YouTube. Essentially, I am bringing ASMR videos to "real life"!
In case you aren't aware, Wikipedia defines ASMR as " Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) is a term used for an experience characterised by a static-like or tingling sensation on the skin that typically begins on the scalp and moves down the back of the neck and upper spine. It has been compared with auditory-tactile synesthesia. ASMR signifies the subjective experience of "low-grade euphoria" characterised by "a combination of positive feelings and a distinct static-like tingling sensation on the skin". It is most commonly triggered by specific acoustic or visual stimuli, and less commonly by intentional attention control." Basically, it's a really nice sensation that makes you feel "warm and tingly", and people are going nuts over it!
ASMR can be triggered by many different sounds, voices, textures, or even by watching someone complete everyday tasks, like folding laundry or washing dishes. Everyone's triggers are different, and there are videos out there with triggers you may have never thought of!
Due to my own love of ASMR videos and their worldwide popularity, I am opening a production company that specializes in bringing these experiences to the "real world". I am looking for actors who would share the same zeal and enthusiasm as the actors in the videos, in order to bring a rich, enveloping, 3D experience to the guest.
You are bringing the guests' favorite triggers to life! You may be crinkling plastic near someone's ear, scratching a piece of carpet, or giving someone a fake haircut. This is a chance for you to let loose and enjoy yourself!
Please note this is NOT sexual in nature. Absolutely no nudity will be expected nor tolerated.
There's really no right or wrong way to do ASMR, so there's NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY. You just need an open mind and ability to connect with people. This is an OPEN CASTING CALL, and we welcome people of all genders, shapes, sizes, and ethnicities!
We offer 4 options for working with Tingles:
In-Spa ASMR Experience: You will be providing an ASMR experience for up to 2 guests in a spa/massage studio/wellness center near your home. The sessions will last 30-90 minutes.
You will be delighting guests with their favorite triggers, which may include tapping, whispering, typing, crinkling, providing fake haircuts, playing with slime, etc. The performance is limited only to your imagination & creativity! Look on YouTube for ideas as to what you can expect :-)
In-Home/Group Session ASMR Experience: You will be providing the same ASMR experience, but in the comfort of the clients' home, much like a traveling massage therapist. If there is a group of 3 or more people, you will be joined by at least one other ASMR Artist.
Skype Sessions: You may also perform live via Skype for ASMR enthusiasts all over the world. If the client prefers, you may also record a custom video instead.
On-Stage Performances: You, accompanied by other ASMR Artists, will perform ASMR on stage for an audience of up to 100 people.
If you are interested in any of the above positions, please e-mail ASMRCasting@gmail.com and include:
