What is a Character Reel Spotlight?

The focus on a single charcter reel spotlight is to focus on one character. That character can go through one situation or multiple. The focus is on that one character. The character might have a range of emotions or only one consistent emotion. The focus is not multiple characters but only one.

How Long Should the Reel Be?

A Typical Character spotlight can be from 15seconds to 45 seconds. There is no length limit in this challenge so have fun and be free.

Can I use a character from an audition?

We are not providing scripts, so you can use any character script that you either write or that was written. Audition content is often confidential and not allowed to be shared, so please do not use anything that has not been released. 

What does the roster inclusion mean?

You will have the opportunity to submit to our audition roster. For any future project we have you will be on our consideration list. This is not a guarantee of work or a job. But you are on a production studios roster which is great. You will have the opportunity to submit other reels and character types for consideration.

Is the grand prize role in a film paid?
