We're looking for two performers to co-host a short documentary-style video series.

The series is an educational resource that aims to destigmatise menstruation, focusing on the challenges that people who menstruate face when in the outdoors. It will break down historical and cultural stereotypes and beliefs around periods and deliver tips, tools, and shared experiences from a range of incredible people.

The hosts' job will be to engagingly deliver scripted lines that tie all the videos and participants together into a cohesive story.

There are a lot of lines spread across the two hosts, so you'll be working off a teleprompter. However, we will be filming in outdoor locations, so we'd like both performers to understand the script in case of glare and poor visibility in some of the locations on the day.

We're producing these videos for a charity organisation, which means we're working on a reasonably tight budget. Having said that, this is a paid gig!

This video series needs to reflect Aotearoa, so we welcome performers from a range of ethnic backgrounds and ages. We'll be talking about some sensitive topics, so we need people who are warm, open, and accepting both on and off-camera.

While you will be working off a script, there will be opportunities to share your experiences as well (if you're comfortable doing so).

This series, along with the written resource that goes alongside it, has the potential to be a real game-changer and will be the first cohesive series about menstruation in NZ.

The videos will be shown to students, outdoor educators and will potentially be played at schools across NZ. We're hoping they will also have a solid online presence.

If this is something you're keen to be a part of, please reach out!

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

Our shoot dates are yet to be confirmed, but they will likely be in late October/early November (at the latest). 1 - 2 shoot days.

Job payment

Fixed price of $1500 - Videos are a free resource for the public, so they need to be online, in perpetuity

Male co-host for a short documentary series

The performer must be warm, open and have the ability to bring the scripted dialogue to life in a genuine way. We want your personality to shine through, whether you're warm and soft-spoken or boisterous and bursting with energy! Because this is a series about menstruation, we need for our male host to be comfortable discussing these topics. These videos are about de-stigmatisation, and we feel an important part of that is hearing people across the genders talk openly about periods.

Male, aged 19 to 65
