Judging

Performances will be judged in the following categories:

APPROACH: First impression - How the actor comes out of the gate - Opening moment.  Time will begin with first word.

DELIVERY: How you use blocking with your words.

CONTENT: Overall performance value - Beginning, Middle, End - Continuity - Emotional Journey. We prefer scripted work from plays & film

BELIEVABILITY & FIT: How well does the monologue fit you?: How believable are you in it?

TIME:  60 seconds.  Time starts from your first word spoken (must be spoken within the first 10 second) We are looking how you flow - How well is the performance 'time managed'? Does it seemed rushed or too short? 

Presentation:

The Beginning of your video on a blank screen or speak on video. Put the following:

Your Name

What is the character name?

Where is the monologue from?

Example:

Chantell D. Christopher

Rose

August Wilson "Fences"
 
I will personally watch each video and give you critique.  Remember I come to you straight no chaser. 
 
 

Below is a sample of a Monologue of Rose from August Wilsons FENCES.  Please note that it is longer than 60 seconds so you need to give us your best 60 seconds. I challenge you to go where no one has gone before.  Act like you are auditioning for Denzel Washingson next movie for August Wilson.  

This is Viola Davis live on Broadway doing the same Monologue.  How would it look if she did it as a monologue?  Something to think about.  BREAK A LEG!!!
