An overworked college student tries a self-improvement app to help her through finals, but she discovers the promise of a new and improved life has a cost that far outweighs the $25 referral bonus.

Accepting self-tape auditions only.

Needed: 4 actors

Upload deadline:
March 08, 2022 at 11:59pm (PST)
Upload self-tapes here
Callbacks: March 11, 2022 (time TBD)

How to audition:

  • Download and fill out the PDF Audition Form here. Once complete, upload the Audition Form here.
  • Upload your Headshot here (not required; recommended even if not professionally done).
  • Record your self-tape and upload it through Google Drive here.
  • Label your self-tape with your last name-first name-ROLE.

Self-tape audition tips:

  • Be familiar with or memorize the sides of the character you are auditioning for, provided here.
  • The Setting: Use a quiet room with little to no background noise. The wall behind you should ideally be a plain color (ex. white or blue). Try to position yourself a few feet away from the wall to avoid shadows. The light should come from behind the camera.
  • Framing: Film horizontally, zoom in to frame yourself from the top of your head to just below your shoulders.
  • Reader: Please have another person or recording read the lines from the sides with you off-camera.
  • Remember to slate: Introduce yourself on camera with your name, height, where you’re based, and briefly tell us a little about yourself. Please include a full-body shot or a knees-up shot of yourself.

Important Information:

  • Please review the Cast Maximum Schedule here before submitting a self-tape and audition form.
  • For the audition wear simple, businesslike clothing with hair back and away from the face.
  • Actors who are cast will be enrolled in 4 units of TFDP 170 in the spring quarter.

Character information:
Tessa/Tessa Clone - (early 20s) The character is female-identifying. Introverted, stressed college student. The type of girl who would rather maneuver around her problems than directly dealing with them.

Whitney - (early 20s) The character is female-identifying. A classmate who is a little too supportive and persuasive. Believes her advice can help anyone and everyone. She’s falsely 'all-knowing' and thinks she could do no wrong.

Pedro - (early 20s) The character is male-identifying. Sweet, good natured classmate who has a crush on Tessa. Observant of the needs of others, a tad disheveled but tries hard to appear as put together. The kind of hopeless romantic who would fantasize about valentines chocolates and flowers for someone he’s not even dating.

Steve - (early 20s) The character is male-identifying. Nerdy, alpha know-it-all. A guy who spends a fair amount of nights gaming and listening to conspiracy podcasts.
