Want to be in a TV Commercial?

By Olivia Olley

Ever wanted to be on TV?


Come join us for our Lions Australia TV Commercial this Sunday January  20 at Shepherds Hill, King Edward Park, Newcastle NSW.


The commercial is for Lions Australia – Two More Hands recruitment campaign.


Filming begins at 9.30am and will finish at 11am


At 11 am Lions Australia are providing a gold coin donation BBQ where all profits will go to support all those affected by last weeks Tasmanian Bush Fires.

We would love to see you there! Details of where to go and what to do are below…


But first here is the concept for the commercial:
Lions Australia is holding a fundraiser event for Medical Research. The fundraiser is Hang Gliding. Once the Lions members finish setting up three hang gliders they put up a sign which says “fundraiser for medical research”. The actors then look up and to their surprise there is a sea of people standing before them, holding up cash, ready to support the Lions cause.


TWO MORE HANDS is a media campaign for Lions Australia. The campaign will be released nationally in April 2013. It  will promote what Lions Australia do for communities locally, nationally and overseas; our aim is to also entice people to join a Lions club and help support local communities.  To find out more about Lions Australia, be part of the TV commercial, have fun and get your self a sausage!
