SO YOU THINK YOU CAN WIN?
Here at Do or Die Studios, we have been looking into ideas on how we can support creatives and local communities through these uncertain times.
Thats why we created the #CastMeComp
A competition which will allow actors to keep active and learning, writers scribbling, Industry professionals seeing new talent and enable us to help charities who are in critical need.
How it works:
The competition is open to all actors over the age of 18 and with self tape facilities. If you are currently isolating on your own don't worry we don't mind if someone reads in with you via FaceTime.
The competition will cost £8.20 to enter. This will create the CastMeComp money pot, this pot will then be distributed to the winning actor, a charity, creatives involved and our Creative Collaboration Fund. Details can be found here.
To enter you MUST share our social media competition post, follow us and purchase a ticket.
Ticket sales close on Wednesday 1st July or until sold out.
On Wednesday 1st July at 6pm we will send out scripts to all actors. There are four scripts sent out, Two suitable for age groups 18-35 and two for 35+. All scripts are two handers. These scripts are being specifically written for our competition. All scripts will be sent to you, if you feel you're on the edge of an age group bracket and the other script suits you better, then please feel free to switch.
Self tapes MUST be uploaded to Youtube. They must be titled: (Your name) for CastMeComp (eg: John Smith for CastMeComp). Next, you need to send us the YouTube link to access your selftape. This link must be emailed to by Saturday 4th July by 5pm. Any tapes received after this deadline won't be entered. Please also upload your selftape to twitter using the hashtag #CastMeComp and tag @doordiestudios.
The Winner and Top 5 will be announced on Friday 10th July. The actor with the winning selftape receives a cash prize and the top 5 will also receive written feedback from an industry professional and have their selftape shared to our social media.
