NYC Tri-State Area Sandwich Generation Caregivers Needed for Documentary

video-163893_640I received a last minute call for individuals caring for aging family member while raising kids to participate in a documentary. The details follow:

Vitamin Enriched, a real people casting company in NYC, is working on a documentary project that will profile Caregivers. We’re looking for stories from the “Sandwich Generation”. The ideal family will have three generations (parent/child/grandparent) all living in one household, but we are open to other caregiving situations.

The documentary project will feature the compelling stories of the everyday caregivers who are managing their own lives while caring for someone who once cared for them. Whether you’re single moms, single dads, partners in gay families or traditional married couples, we want to hear from you.

If selected for the documentary, each family member will be paid $1,000 total for a 2 day shoot. The intention is to tell the story from the perspective of 3 family members.

Initial interviews will take place via Skype either
Oct. 09th or 10th 2014

Callback interviews will take place either
Oct. 12th or 13th either via Skype or a home-visit.

Shoot dates will take place between
Oct. 16th – Oct. 21st 2014
