When submitting for any role with the studio, please send an email to the address specified in the breakdown. Please be sure to include the following in the email:
AFTER YOU SUBMIT
Remember to be patient. Sometimes, we receive dozens, or even hundreds of submissions for a single role.
You may not hear from us right away, and generally we will only contact individuals we are interested in seeing a video audition from. If we do not contact you, it is not because we don't like you! You just may not be right for the particular role.
Another common reason we do not contact certain individuals is because instructions are not followed complete. Please be sure you read all information in the breakdowns and include all requested information. If we get a submission that omits items we have asked for, we typically delete the submission right away.
IF WE CONTACT YOU
Congrats! We want to see more! Generally, we will send you a small portion of a scene or monologue to read for us on camera. You can record your performance on any camera you have at your disposal, and share it with us in a variety of ways. Just be sure to read all information we send to you on how to get your video to us, and be sure you submit it by the deadline we give you.
