Instructions

This is an online open call for young performers to audition for upcoming Nickelodeon live-action projects. We are committed to diverse, inclusive casting. Please submit qualified performers, without regard to disability, race, age, national origin, ethnic origin or any other basis prohibited by law. AUDITIONS MAY ONLY BE POSTED TO THIS SITE; DO NOT E-MAIL THEM. All material is considered property of Nickelodeon and should not be posted or shared on any public forums. If you have any technical issues related to the uploading of audition footage, please email NickOnlineOpenCall@nick.com.

TO SUBMIT:
SLATE (this must be before the audition)
Please hold up a piece of paper (for 5-10 seconds) with the following information written or typed in large, clear letters:
*Name
*Age and Date of Birth (if over 18 - please say ‘over 18’)
*Height
*City, State (or Province, if in Canada) you reside in
*Agent/Manager’s name if represented. If not represented, guardian’s phone number and email address

TAPING INSTRUCTIONS:
*Please tape each portion of the audition as separate clips and upload each as individual files.
*A guardian should tape the performer from mid-torso up. NO - hats, sunglasses, gum or props. We want all performers to wear casual attire – a plain t-shirt and jeans with natural, fresh faces and laid-back hair and makeup is perfect. If taping with a camera phone, please tape horizontally.
*If you are able, please stand when performing, speak slightly to the left or right of the camera and do not look directly into the camera lens.
*There should be no other person on camera and be sure the reader speaks softly off camera in order not to overshadow the performer.
*All performers should have the scene memorized.
*If you use an assistive device, feel free to do so in your tape.
*We want to see each performer bring the comedy. Pacing should be quick and playful.

Please tape the audition in the following order and make each part a separate video clip:

A. SLATE

B. SCENE (please choose ONE of the three available scenes attached)
Please note sides will download as a pdf.
If you need a .doc .docx version of the sides for any reason, such as adaptive technology compatibility or interpreters, please email us.

C. SPECIAL TALENTS - If the performer has any funny characters, impressions, or special talents, we would like to see them. If the performer is a singer and/or plays an instrument, they are welcome to self-tape a chorus and a verse of an upbeat, popular Top 40-style song – no showtunes or Broadway please. Footage of each talent should be no more than 30 seconds, max.
D. At the END, full body shot (No side profiles)

Please note: there are no costs associated with self-taping. Please follow all the instructions above for a successful self-tape.

Please do not send us any sensitive personal information like financial or health information, or anything else you consider confidential
