How to apply 

Submit a self-taped read of ANY page from ANY scene in the script below.


read the script

I have posted the full script for this short film below. Please read through it and ask yourself if this is the type of short film you wish to star in. If you find the story and characters compelling, then the answer may be yes. 


understand the character

It’s important to really think about the character you are auditioning for. What do they seem to want in the story? What do they value? What kind of person do they seem to be? How might you bring them to life?


record your self-taped audition

Find a partner and ask them to read with you for the self-taped audition. Make sure you rehearse your lines several times prior to recording a take. Many actors submit self-taped auditions fully off book (aka they memorized the scene). Remember, the goal of the audition is to stand out from the pack with a strong performance.
