Models needed

Models are needed for a "popular art based competition television show," says the casting call. The filming is set for the third week of April, and it's a 10- to 12-hour commitment.

You must be 21 years or older, and although it's not a fully nude shoot, the casting call did warn that "minimal coverage" should be expected as you'd be getting "body painted" by the contestants.

The pay for this gig is a hefty $315 per day.
