Win a little cash and receive a one-on-one Skype consultation with Emmy Award-winning casting director of MAD MEN, Carrie Audino.
We’ll provide the monologue (to keep the focus on the acting, rather than the writing), you make the choices (circumstances, place, objective, prior circumsances, etc – play!).
Here’s the monologue:
“If it were up to me… IF… it were up to me… well, it’s never been up to me, so I’ll have to think about that… But now that it is, now that I have the power, then I would just leave. And not come back. And not tell this story. Just erase it – the whole thing – from my life, like it never happened. But it did. And it’s too late, and it’s NOT up to me.”
To enter, simply submit a video of yourself performing this monologue (you will need to add the video to one of your video galleries first – or create a new gallery and add the video to that gallery; for instructions on creating galleries and adding media, CLICK HERE; for a guide to submitting your media to an initiative, CLICK HERE). Unedited webcam or smartphone videos only. Winners will be selected as follows:
- MyTeeVee members (i.e., YOU) will vote for their favorite monologues
- The 30 entries with the most votes will move on to the “semi-final” round*
- Out of the 30 semi-finalists, we and our blue ribbon panel will select 10 finalists*
- MyTeeVee members will vote again for their favorite finalists
1st, 2nd & 3rd place prizes will be awarded to the three finalists who receive the most votes.*
