WTYT 960 Call for Contestants!
Well... really we're casting a movie, that is part of Zeke Zelker's transmedia experience Billboard an Uncommon Contest for Common People!. The movie is about Casey Lindeweiler who inherited a struggling radio station, WTYT 960. To bring the station out of the ratings basement, he devises a plan to host a billboard-sitting contest, where four lucky people will live on a catwalk, eight feet wide by forty feet long, in front of a billboard to win a mobile home and "nine-sixty" thousand dollars.
Obviously this is a comedy with some dramatic elements. What makes this project so unique is Zeke's approach to telling the story all the way down to how he's casting it. The project has already been underway in the form of a virtual radio station, where bands submit their music to become a part of the station's play list.
We're asking people to begin the audition process by creating a submission video simply stating why you would be the best contestant for The Great WTYT960 Billboard-Sitting Contest? So make sure you make your video is entertaining, believable, no longer than 90 seconds, don't make mention of your acting background, aka resume, and that you're auditioning for a movie. This is supposed to be fun, blurring the lines between fact and fiction.
Please do not use anything already produced by anyone else that will infringe upon someone's copyright whether it be music, video, pictures, etc. This will result in the deletion of your video.
When you're ready to submit your video, log in and come back to this page. Once logged in, you'll find a form where we ask a few questions about who you are. After you submit your information, your account will be ready for video submission.
