Hi Everyone!

My friend and I produced a small monologue series called CharacterBased.

This series was initially created because my friend, Lynnese, was having a VERY VERY difficult time landing auditions. With so few roles written for women of color, many casting directors were not reaching out to her for projects, and as a result, she had an incredibly sparse reel.

These films were produced out of the need to build her portfolio.

Characterbased is a collection of preexisting films, plays, and literature reenacted by Lynnese, in different locations around New York City.

Hopefully this structure can inspire other actors to follow the same format, particularly if they're having a hard time landing auditions due to a sparse reel. You can learn more about our project here:
