Welcome to 2minaudition!
It’s not easy to make it in the world of entertainment and for the vast majority of artists the word “NO” is heard far too often.
Statistics will show that more than 95% of people will pack up and leave for home after an average of 9 months. 95%! It’s safe to say that “HUSTLE” and “DETERMINATION” are two key components to making it in this industry. Our CEO and Co-Founder, Franco Zavala has been in the entertainment industry for the past 8 years now and he knows first hand what it is like to struggle in the day-to-day rigors of this business.
5 years ago Franco and his daughter Clara decided, as a fun side project, to build a contest for actors where they can compete against one another for a chance to win a prize. The objective of the contest was to build, launch and provide a fun, safe, and exciting challenge for actors so they can continue to work on their craft. Classes, seminars, workshops, etc. are great for the “Resume” (learn why it’s a waste of time) but putting your talents out there, for your friends, peers, and public to see is the only way to really grow as an artist. Stand-Up comedy follows this model very well. In order to be a great comic you need to get up in front of people and fail so you can grow.
After a successful trial run Franco and Clara decided that they wanted to build the company bigger and offer more prizes other than cash (see our first ever winner).
Last year, 2minaudition launched a Dance Contest and the winner was flown to NYC and spent an entire day with Emmy Nominated Choreographer Stacey Tookey. WATCH VIDEO
This year 2minaudition will launch an acting contest, available for artists that are 13 years old (Parental Consent Needed) and up to participate. The winner will be flown out to LA and receive a Principal Role in a real Hollywood Feature Film being produced and directed by Mark Cartier and his distribution company; North of Two.
Yes, you get paid. Yes, you are flown out to and taken to set on the day you’re scheduled to shoot, and yes, you will be treated like a peer. This contest was created to help artists who are serious about the word “HUSTLE”, get one step closer to their dreams.
Will this contest make you famous? We don’t know! But, what we do know is that you will grow as an artists and your confidence will grow right along with you. So, we encourage you to take a chance! We encourage you to be bold and take risks. Remember, 2minaudition was created for artists by artists to create and deliver REAL, fun, and exciting opportunities that will fuel the fire in your creative hearts! We encourage you to TRY and stop making excuses. What if you WIN?
Open Submissions begin July, 30th 2018!!!!!!!!!!
