CLAPIT’S “SHOWDOWN ON THE BRAZOS” FILM OPEN CALL
LIVE 27 July 2019 – 5 August 2019
Clapit is the talent discovery app that crowdsources professional and amateur actors straight into film & TV roles. The two winners of clapit’s “Showdown on the Brazos” film open call will perform speaking roles in the feature film “Showdown on the Brazos” by filmmaker Bill Foster.
All people ages 16+ who are legal residents of the USA are eligible to enter. No prior acting experience is required. There is no charge to download clapit or enter the contest. IMPORTANT: Clapit reserves the right to disqualify any Entrant in breach of the Official Rules which you should read on clapit.com.
To audition please improvise one of the following character breakdowns in your 20 second video audition:-
OPTION 1 – BOB (male role)
“Bob” is a simpleton; he is not too bright. He’s an old-world cowboy, even by 1887 standards. One night, he’s in a saloon when a fight breaks out between two patrons; one of the fighters is 6’4″, and very muscular. Bob wants to immediately “initiate” a formal bet among the patrons in the bar that the “big guy” will win. He enthusiastically tries to “draft” everyone into the bet before the fight begins. Improvise this scene!
OPTION 2 – VICTORIA (female role)
“Victoria” is a waitress at the saloon, and takes Bob up on his bet. She’s attracted to Bob, but still frames the bet so that whatever happens, she wins, not Bob. It’s a “heads I win, tails you lose” scenario. The bet does not have to include money- it can be a drink, or an evening with just the two of them. Victoria continually talks, so that eventually Bob becomes confused- and accepts a wager he can’t possibly win. Improvise this scene!!
