Did you watch Gilligan's Island re-runs or the original show when you were a kid? Now it's time for a new version of Gilligan's Island and Five Star Crew is 'cast' as the crewing contractor for the show!
The show will film in Hawaii starting in September and we need crew to run the all-new S.S. Minnow! Unlike the original S.S. Minnow of 38.6' in length, the new boat will measure just over 70' in length to accommodate some at-sea filming with camera crew, cast and boat crew.
All crew must be American or green card holders.
We are looking for an experienced Captain to oversee crew, cast, all on-water operation and to work with producers/directors to ensure smooth sailing with regards to weather/filming schedule, etc. Must be able to shout and scream at his crew yet remain lovable. We realize the size of the boat is small but have been asked for a 200-ton (minimum) or Yachtmaster Ocean-licensed Captain for insurance reasons.
As well, we are looking for an experienced Engineer, Y2 or equivalent as a minimum as there will be on-set (island) engineering and again, as required for insurance purposes. Must be a natural smart-ass and educated in all areas of science and technology.
Our third crew member requirement is for a Stewardess (female). We require someone with a minimum of 3 years of experience on yachts who closely resembles Dawn Wells as a young woman (Google: Dawn Wells). She should be in her early 20's with dark hair including bangs and brown eyes. Max height of 5'6" or 167cms and must be of a slim build. She will play a double for Dawn's character in stunts so must be athletic and flexible.
Next we require a Mate. We can accommodate relatively new crew (minimum 1 season of experience) and must be male. Must closely resemble Gilligan (Google: Bob Denver). Must look good in a red rugby shirt. The Mate will be responsible for the upkeep of the vessel and must be able to swim and fish.
All crew must speak English as a native language and be available for Skype interviews immediately.
This show is a social microcosm and only those with faith in what they're doing need apply *wink*
