 #NatashaBassett Open Call – winner announced!

Sponsored by Actors Connection

Congrats to the winner, Brigitte Bertrand!

Clapit held an open call in August 2017 for the lead female role in Satellite Sky’s music video, directed by Hollywood actress Natasha Bassett (Hail, Caesar!, Britney Ever After). Natasha chose Brigitte from the top 5 most clapped auditions and Brigitte was filmed in Los Angeles, California.

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.
