Casting: Poly-Relationships for Documentary
Are you in a OPEN relationship with more than one person? Is the other person ok with it? Are you 23 - 40, attractive and interested in sharing your unique love story?

A MAJOR NETWORK is casting a new documentary about "POLYAMORY".

If you are interested in learning more, please send us your: Name, Age, Contact Number, A Recent Photo of You - and tell us a little bit about your situation.

*We are looking for people that are proud of their relationships and feel that Monogamy is truly not for them.

No pay for this project, but your story will be featured to Executive Producers which may lead to pay in the future. :)

Watch out for this anonymous appeal
Note that this appeal says nothing about who they are or who they're working for. Bad sign.

It may be a coincidence... but Firecracker Films also has a similar casting call out currently. That is the outfit that made "I Love You. and You. and You" for Britain's creepy freak-show program "Tainted Love" in 2006. It was a snark job and not what the participants/victims had been led to expect. See my posts about it at the time here:


and here:


...including the comments especially from people who participated. A
member of one family they filmed wrote,

When I researched Firecracker Films before we agreed to be filmed, I
found out about the "Tainted Love" series Channel 4 was commissioning
(then called "the dark side of modern love") and specifically asked
them if this documentary was part of that series.

They said no. Obviously, they lied.

This family was filmed for several days but was not shown in the final
cut -- probably because, they think, they were not dysfunctional
enough to meet Firecracker Films' needs even with creative editing.

If anyone is tempted to respond, *at least* contact the Polyamory Media Association (http://www.polymediaassociation.com/) and/or Loving More (http://www.lovemore.com/) and get advice on how to draw up a binding contract with the filmmakers about how you do and don't agree to be used -- including your right to review and veto the final cut of this use and any future uses of all filming done of you, your property, etc. etc. And be prepared to walk away from any deal.

Thanks Alan,

I just came across your notes elsewhere and was going to make sure people knew to approach this call with caution, but you beat me to the punch.

After reading your notes I now definitely recall the show. Weak.

Weird phrasing here.

Why should looks or age matter for this?

Because it's for television. That's show biz!
