TIME SENSITIVE: Special Filming Opportunity for JDRF on Wednesday, March 16, 2011

March 11, 2011

JDRF and Janimation, Inc are looking for JDRF ambassadors to help us with a special filming opportunity taking place on Wednesday, March 16, 2011.

Janimation, Inc is producing an educational video for JDRF on the daily trials people living with type 1 diabetes face. The filming will take place in a school, classroom and gym setting, so we are looking for ambassadors who can help by standing in as students. It’s possible that some of the kids that attend will be asked to do some short speaking parts, but the majority of the talking will be done by the “4Day Weekend” improv group and other actors brought in by Janimation.

This is going to be a fun and educational video that will be showcased at this year’s Dream Gala, placed on our website and used for other events to help bring awareness to type 1 diabetes and JDRF.

We realize that next week is Spring Break, but if you are in town and meet the below criteria we would love to have you! We have a limited amount of space so please RSVP as soon as possible to reserve your spot!

Who: Looking for JDRF ambassadors between the ages of 10-14 years old

Date: Wednesday, March 16, 2011

Time: Morning Shift 8:00am – 11:30 am or Afternoon Shift 12:30 pm – 5:30 pm

Location:Bishop Lynch High School – 9750 Ferguson Road, Dallas, TX 75228

RSVP: Please RSVP to Tressa Thomas at ASAP if you are available and interested. Space is limited!

Important: Since this is a controlled environment, the filming crew has requested that the parents only bring the participating child to the shoot. Unfortunately, we cannot have any young children attend (under 9 years old).

Dress: Ambassadors will be asked to wear what they would normally wear to school – casual/play/street wear (no uniforms). Please avoid clothing with big logos and no white shirts for camera. Since they will also be shooting in a gym setting, please bring/wear tennis shoes/sneakers.

What to Bring: Please bring snacks/lunch and beverages in case your child gets hungry or needs to treat a low. Please also bring two additional clothing tops to possibly wear.

Thank you for your consideration! If you have any questions, please reach out to Tressa Thomas at
