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 you will receive a voucher for $200.00. Location: Because of COVID-19 clapit winners will be advised by the filmmaker the location for filming when it is safe to film. We will not compromise the safety of clapit winners. 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 – Jack (male role)
Pizza delivery Guy: You enter in the middle of the video chat “date” and begin to make small talk with the woman on the computer, while the “date” gets the money to pay for the pizza you’re delivering. You are a congenial, quirky, unfiltered, dim witted, Rocky Balboa personality-type. Think about what you would say to the girl on the computer. You are alternately amazed, surprised, and disenchanted with the technology of video chat, and the fact that this type of technology even exists. Improvise this scene!
OPTION 2 – Maria (female role)
Cleaning Lady: Maria comes in to clean the room and pretends to not be paying attention to the conversation that the lead male is having with his online date.She is not impressed with his date, and does not hide it well. As she is tidying up, she is talking to herself, and responding to what she is hearing the woman say.She feels comfortable with this as she has been his cleaning lady for years, and they have a good relationship. Improvise what you will say based on what you are overhearing, and illustrate your comedic timing and sense of humor.
