Welcome to the casting call page for “Real Life,” an exciting short film that delves into the lives of four teenage friends: Tyler, Jerome, Ana, and Cree. Set against the backdrop of their everyday struggles and dilemmas, this film explores the consequences of the choices they make. We are seeking talented actors who can portray the raw emotions and complexities of these characters. If you are or look between the ages of 14-16 and possess a natural ability to captivate audiences, we invite you to audition for this thought-provoking and compelling project. Join us on this journey as we bring “Real Life” to the screen, where the choices we make can lead us to places we never intended to be.
Step 1: Review the character descriptions. Please specify which character you are auditioning for at the beginning of your video.
Step 2: Record a one to two minute video monologue as the character of your choice. The monologue should be the character telling the audience about their life (this will be an improv). Before you begin your monologue, tell us a little about yourself in real life.
Step 3: Make sure that your monologue is clean and appropriate. Professional recording equipment is not necessary. Cell phone videos are sufficient. Make sure that you are in the video frame clearly and that the audio is loud enough to hear during playback and you.
Step 4: Submit video recordings to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name in the subject line. Please also include your guardian’s phone number and email address. You must have their permission to submit.
