To audition please improvise one of the following character breakdowns in your 20 second video audition:-
OPTION 1 – Marcus (male role)
You are a Detective who is trying to talk a woman down from killing her child, whom she has at knife point. The Police on the scene want to shoot her- so you have to figure out how to “calm” the Police down, while saving both her and the child’s life.. as well as keep your job on the force, all at the same time. Improvise this scene!
OPTION 2 – Sharon (female role)
You are a public defender and you have to defend a man who violated a young girl. This case has you going against everything you hold dear, since this has recently happened to your own daughter. Nevertheless, you have a duty as a Public Defender, but must reconcile this while struggling against your own personal beliefs. Improvise this scene!
