Breakdown Services, is hosting “Breakthru with Breakdown,” a unique event offering child actors from ages 6 to 18 in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Minnesota, Missouri, Kansas, Iowa and Wisconsin to send in their virtual scenes for free. The reads will then be sent to every agent and manager in Hollywood for review.
Actors or their parents should go to www.actorsaccess.com, select the project Breakthru with Breakdown, choose one role, either dramatic or comedic in their age range, and send in the filmed audition to firstname.lastname@example.org. Breakdown Services will then send the scenes to various L.A. agents and managers using its Eco-Cast Audition System to choose the best of the best. The agents and managers will look through all of the virtual auditions and send a list back of which actors they are interested in. Breakdown Services will then send the actors a list of the companies interested in them and the contact information.
The company released a Breakdown on Monday, November 1 through their Actors Access site (www.actorsaccess.com) inviting actors to send in their videos. All videos should be in standard video format (mov, mp4, wmv, m4v, mpg, mod, flv). From there Breakdown will virtually send the readings to the agents and managers through their new product, Eco-Cast, a virtual pre-read system. All auditions must be received by November 14, 2010.
