Clapit is the talent discovery app that crowdsources professional and amateur actors straight into film & TV roles. The two winners of clapit’s “The documentary” feature film open call will perform speaking roles in the feature film “The Documentary” by filmmaker D.J. Higgins.
All people ages 16+ who are legal residents of the USA are eligible to enter. No prior acting experience is required. Non-union, no pay but up to $500.00 reimbursement for travel and lodging. IMPORTANT: Clapit reserves the right to disqualify any Entrant in breach of the OFFICIAL RULES which you should read on clapit.com prior to posting your audition.
To audition please post a 20 second video audition and improvise one of the following character breakdowns:-
OPTION 1 – Gina (female role)
You are a neighbor of Justin (the protagonist and crooked cop) and walk your dog every morning. One morning you walk your dog at 5 am and see Justin come home with his hands covered in blood. You interact with him on your walk and ask him what happened. You are scared, suspicious yet brave as you do not want your kids growing up next to a murderer. Improvise this scene!
OPTION 2 – Bobby (male role)
You are Justin’s cousin and are interviewed by a reporter as to what he was like growing up. You are prompted to give a full evaluation of his character and you try and convince the reporter that despite his bad temper and drinking problem, he has a good heart. Improvise this scene!
