Who We're Looking For
People with acting or improv experience who care about making a positive difference in the world and can volunteer their time.
Aspiring actors who are looking for new horizons and spaces to practice.
Recently graduated acting students interested in building their portfolio while benefiting the common good.
What You Can Expect
You will be given a role and script for a specific scenario.
You will review a role and the case scenario.
You will record a video as an actor for an assigned role (recording can be completed within 20 mins).
Once the recording is complete, you can send the recording to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Set up your webcam at eye-height. Facing the camera face-on creates the best connection with your audience. Look at the camera while you’re talking and not the screen.
Be mindful of the background. Try to sit in front of a nice-looking background without clutter, distractions, or embarrassing items.
Make sure there is plenty of light in the room. Do not put the light behind, above, or below you to avoid shadows in the face.
Avoid having a window behind you.
Use a microphone, earbuds, or a headset rather than relying on your device to capture the sound.
Speak clearly and turn off anything that makes loud noises in the room.
Rehearse your presentation prior to going live.
Reboot your computer several hours before the event to avoid any automated updates that could launch or ring.
Turn off/close any non-presentation related programs (i.e. email) to avoid pop-ups and alert noises.
Silence your cell phone; if it is on vibrate, put it in your pocket (or on another soft surface) so it does not make a buzzing noise during your recording.
