Takeda Books AFTRA Industrial for Empower

This week, TV/Film actor Scott Takeda begins filming an AFTRA industrial training video for Empower Retirement – a subsidiary of Great-West Financial, the second largest retirement provider.


“I’m excited about the campaign for two reasons,” said Takeda. “First, it’s so nice to be doing union industrial work. The client asked for union actors, so I’m grateful for her support. Second, I get to work with a dog! His name is Epic, and I saw his video. He’s amazing. He’s obviously the star of the piece, so I’m just happy to be a supporting actor to him.”

Brock Sherman is the director out of Centennial. Takeda’s commercial representation is Donna Baldwin Agency.
