#NATASHABASSETT OPEN CALL – LIVE NOW ON CLAPIT

Sponsored by Actors Connection

Hollywood film actress Natasha Bassett is hosting an open call on clapit to cast the female lead in a music video she is directing for the band Satellite Sky. Natasha is looking for females of any ethnicity who appear to be 19-30 years old.

Only non-SAG-AFTRA, non-union females 16+ years old in the USA and New South Wales, Australia are eligible to apply.

Character Breakdown from Natasha:

Natural, wild, and free-spirited. We want to see who YOU are.

The love of your life is standing in front of you and this is the last time you’ll see them again. You want them to stay with you, but it isn’t working. Using only your upper body and eyes/face (no dialogue), show us how you would try to convince them to be with you. In the final moment of the scene, show us your reaction as you watch them walk away forever.

Keeping in mind this is a music video, we are really looking for an actress who can convey emotional depth through her eyes. Someone who understands how to use movement and her body to express the journey of the character through an imaginative, subtle performance. Shoot from above waist with clear, natural lighting.

How to Apply:

  1. Download clapit from the app store.

  2. Between August 9 and August 27, 2017, post a 20-sec video audition onto clapit (see character breakdown above). In the text of your post, write #NatashaBassett as well as your name, age & location.

  3. Invite your family, friends and fans over text, email and social media to download clapit and “clap” your performance.

  4. Natasha Bassett and Satellite Sky will choose a winner from the top 5 most clapped auditions. Talent will receive an all-expenses paid trip to LA to star in the music video!

    There is no charge to download clapit or to enter the contest. Read our Terms and Conditions here.
