TWENTYNINE PALMS, Calif -- Combat Center Marines were given the opportunity to be screened for Marine Corps Recruiting Command advertisements during the annual consolidated casting call held at the base exchange, April 25, 2014.

The casting call for Marines of all ranks, military occupational specialties and backgrounds was conducted to find eligible Marines to be featured in future MCRC projects. The tour, in partnership with the J. Walter Thompson advertising agency, traveled to several Marine Corps installations throughout the continental United States.

“This is one of our better days,” said Capt. Wesley Jagoe, advertising operations officer, MCRC. “We’ve had nearly 50 Marines today. People have heard about this through advertisements or simply saw us when they walked in.”

Some Combat Center Marines saw the tour as a valuable opportunity and way to represent the Marine Corps.

“I've always seen Marine Corps commercials and thought it would be cool to be part of that,” said Cpl. Zachary Corrales, Marine, 1st Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment. “Just the general information people have out there for Marines is enough, but seeing commercials and Marines in action can also really be attractive.”

Applicants were photographed and given a brief on-camera interview. According to Jagoe, those selected will be cast in advertisements such as web videos for Marines.mil, television commercials, social media platforms and print advertisements.

“When it’s time to shoot, we’ll see if specific Marines are available on certain days,” Jagoe said. “Projects could take a few hours or a whole week of shooting, and will require chain-of-command approval.”

To apply for the screening process, visit www.mcrc.marines.mil/casting or call 703-784-9434 and reference casting.
