To audition please improvise one of the following character breakdowns in your 20 second video audition:-
OPTION 1 – Dr. Pete (male role)
In this coming of age film, our lead character is 8 years old and getting her first pair of eye glasses. The problem is, she has a lazy eye in one eye only- which means her glasses will have a strong prescription in one eye, while the other eye will have no prescription at all. The other option is for her to wear an eye- patch. While the OPTHAMOLOGIST (Dr. Pete) doesn’t warn her that her glasses will be different from other kids, he does have to try to explain her condition to her and ask her to choose between an eye patch or glasses so that it seems like it’s completely her choice. Improvise this scene!
OPTION 2 – Jessica (female role)
Our lead character is now all grown up and has moved to Hollywood and gets a job managing an all-female valet parking company. In classic Hollywood style, the company is made up of attractive women and the valet service is camped outside of posh Hollywood parties. There’s only one problem, the owners never gave any of the women a driving test. And in this scene, The FEMALE VALET ATTENDANT (Jessica) gets behind the wheel of a stick shift but has to eventually confess that she has no idea how to drive it. She CONFESSES to her “BOSS” that she cannot drive a stick shift. Improvise this scene!
