Ok so check this out,

I have been receiving lots of emails saying that the talents doesnt have any footage or reel, but they would film themselves reading some sides.

So I thought It would be cool if anyone has an idea of a 1 page side that can really get me to see if this talent will fit in this drama. So if anyone of you are interested in writing a 1 page side that I can send to these actors to record, that would be great, and really fun as well. I always found it cool to see my words written being spoken by an actor. So the best 1 page side for an emotional (crying scene "I need one for males & one for females") will be sent out to all the talent requesting it.

Go ahead and attach it in this thread and I will try and pick one tonight.

(note) maybe you have a page in your script that will fit this request, that works too.

This may also help show your talent in writing :)

If you have to do 2 pages, thats fine.

Hi Nick!

Here's a crying scene.

MICHAEL is a young English guy who is trying to make things work on a remote, weather-whipped Irish island. MOSS is his uncle and, until this scene, has never uttered more than a couple of grunts.

Hope you like it.

Ok, so im going to "like" the one im going to use :) - This doesnt mean those im not using that I didnt like your, just I felt the one I use will best suit what im doing at this point.

Ok, ive read them all, and I need something more. I am going to have the talent film themselves doing this. I personally felt the most well written was Ruben's, I was there at the potato field. That is how a professional script and test side needs to be, though Ruben, if you can give me a little more dialog either in that scene, or a different one that would be great.

Kayak & Ralph, you obviously show you can right, but show me something better, I know you guys can do it.

Hi, Nick!

I'm flattered. Here is the new version of the scene, with added dialogue.
Please let me know if you require any other changes.

This one's called, "IF," one of the biggest words in the English dictionary.
It's one page exactly, light on action, heavy on dialogue, and pregnant with emotion for a male and a female actor. Hope it's what you're looking for. Thought this was "gone." Ignore 2nd post.

"Selenaville" is set in an underground moon city. A serial killer who stowed away on shuttle is loose in the city.

It's two scenes several pages apart.

Hi Nick.

Here's a piece (two-pager) which you might be able to give to the talent.

PHIL is a young mafioso who arrives at this venue, the candy store, half
expecting to get whacked. He is enormously relieved when his friend and
colleague, SAL, turns out to have nothing but affection for him.

It is almost all dialogue.

I try, as a rule, to write my scenes so that they are "stand-alone", ie they
form little self-contained dramas. It's another way of saying, I've got a
lot of material that the talent can use.

Regards,

Ruben

Ruben, Ralph, rdhay, = all accepted

I will use all of you sides and all talent will read from all three, this way I can get a good feel.

If they give me permission, I will show you the video so you can see your work come to life :)
