BLACK TEAM LEADER: The team leader of the main strike team. He is cool under pressure and a quiet professional. He is able to think quickly under fire and loves his team as if they were his own children. You should have an athletic build- taller is preferred but not required. Ideally you come dressed the part, but this is not a determining factor. Prior military experience is a plus but not required. This is a major role and will require approximately 5-6 days of shooting.

RED TEAM LEADER: Leader of one fire team. When the strike gets split in half, he takes command of his team and doesn’t miss a beat. This character does get shot, although not fatally, so you will be required to portray this convincingly. Ideally you come dressed the part, but this is not a determining factor. Physical conditioning and appearance are considerations so be in moderate to athletic conditioning.
