VIDEO INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOUTUBE – FOR ACTORS: When you slate, stand in front of the camera framing the shot from the top of your head to your waist. Then pan down so we see your legs and feet, then back to a shot of your head to your waist. Turn profile left and if you have long hair pull away from you so we see your neck line, then profile to the right and do the same thing if you have long hair, pull it back so we see you neck line. Then turn forward to camera and please look directly at the camera, naturally smile, and state your full name, age, height and what interests you about the character and being in this production.
The person reading with you should be off camera and your voice should be the dominant voice heard. When you begin the reading, you may sit or stand. Frame the shot from the waist up, so we can see your face and upper body movement during the reading. You can either look at the camera or the person with whom you are reading. You can hold the script in front of you, but not blocking your face. If you choose to hold the script, do not let the paper inhibit your gestures. Or, you can memorize the scenes. A natural, free-spirited, engaged performance is preferred. Make sure that you have lighting so we see face, and have a plain background. No pictures on a wall or windows behind you.
Now upload and post your video audition to Your YouTube account, mark it private so no one else can see it and then send Pamela@rustybucketkids.com your private link. No passwords just use the private link.
Thanks so much and have fun with your audition.
