Stonehenge Auditions 2020 - Self-Taping Auditions
For the past 15 years, Stonehenge has been helping connect actors and filmmakers connect with one another with an in-person mass audition. Due to COVID-19 precautions, we are going to forego the in-person event, but want to help the community connect, in this case via Zoom webinar.
Panelists Bjorn Munson, Francis Abbey, William R. Coughlan, and Tara Garwood will discuss:
- Gear: From smartphones to more professional equipment, we'll discuss cameras, microphones, and lighting.
- Presentation: We'll make suggestions about wardrobe and makeup.
- Monologue choices: Tips to find the right text and common pitfalls to avoid.
- Submission: Discuss standard file types (e.g. MP4) and standard platforms where producers and others will want you to upload your audition (Dropbox, Google Drive, WeTransfer, etc.).
In addition, the program will provide all attendees with details on how to submit their self-taped monologue to be posted on the Stonehenge Auditions YouTube channel later this summer. The channel is subscribed to by hundreds of local producers looking to cast their projects.
If this new program or revised date (July 29) doesn't suit your needs, email firstname.lastname@example.org and any registration fees will be refunded. Thank you for your flexibility.
Additionally, please bear the following details in mind:
- Actors must be 18 years or older to submit auditions for the YouTube page.
- All actors wishing to submit auditions will need to sign a release (which will be provided via online link).
Pricing is a bit different than usual for this event: It is absolutely free for current TIVA members (who must be logged in), and just $10 for the general public.
Refund Policy: Refunds are available up to 48 hours in advance of the program. No refund will be issued for a cancellation with less than 48 hours’ notice. If the event is canceled or rescheduled, refunds will be issued as needed. Similarly, refunds will of course be issued to any actors who are not selected in the lottery in the case of overbooking.
