 *if you cannot make this date, but wish to make an appointment to be auditioned on an alternative date please contact us, the same rules of auditioning will apply* OPEN AUDITIONS 11-6pm at Jasmyn House, Midvale Road Paignton Devon TQ4 5BD SEPT 27TH 2014 _________________________________________________ A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT: In a nutshell, this is a long term crowdfunded internet film series, to be broadcast on Youtube and Vimeo, (and any other film or video sites chosen!) starting shooting by the end of 2014. Overall, this is a three year project, with filming taking place for each crowdfunded episode, over a few days, after funding has been raised. During filming days, shoots could be an early start to late finish, and for relevant characters also include night-time shoots. A lot of locations will be in and around Devon and Cornwall in the UK, some locations in France, especially for later episodes, will be looked into as well. This is a pretty different project, as it is based on Victor Hugo's UNABRIDGED novel (this is not the musical or a single feature film!) and we are remaining as faithful to that unabridged novel as is possible. Due to the nature of crowdfunding we are hoping to be able to pay our performers, but this depends entirely on funds raised, and may alter episode by episode as the series gets more well known, but at the minimum, once you have been cast as a character in the series, your expenses will be covered. Depending on what character you wish to audition for, and are cast as you may be required for several episodes (or indeed all of them), or simply one. HOW TO AUDITION: During August, our project website will be updated with set audition pieces for each character. You will be expected not to necessarily have learned the piece but to have made yourself familiar with it. There will also be an audition pack in PDF and Word format, which will contain important information, and an application form. You will be asked to bring that, along with a headshot and an up to date performance resume. At the auditions, you will be asked to perform the piece on video camera, as a screen test. We will be looking at your characterization, focus, and the realism of your portrayal of the character. You will be either auditioning solo, or with one other person, in front of the directors. When you arrive, you will be directed to a waiting room, and we will call people in to audition in front of our panel. Doors open at 11am, and close at 6pm. The earlier you arrive, the earlier you will be seen, unless you have made a specific appointment. There are several child roles, but all children MUST be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times. Please be aware that we cannot accept auditions or applications via email or video. In order to be considered for a role, you need to attend in person. THERE IS NO FEE REQUIRED FOR YOU TO AUDITION.
