How To Shoot a Great Casting Video

For best results, don’t hold back! Have fun and try to be entertaining. Keep your energy up, and show us what you’ve got. Don’t just sit there, film yourself interacting with your “world” including the people and things you care about.

This isn’t supposed to be professional, so don’t overthink it. Just have fun for a few minutes and send it over.

  • Tell us about your idea
  • Describe yourself and anyone else you think would be on the show. Ask them to describe you. What are the special likes, dislikes, and secrets that make these people who they are?
  • Sell it! Be creative and convince us that your idea is really great

In order for us to see what you look like, it’s best to hand the camera to someone else. If it’s a camera phone, make sure to hold it sideways, in landscape mode, and try to avoid noisy and public places.

Now all you have to do is upload your video to vimeo.com in the highest possible resolution. While your video is uploading (or after it’s done), click the "Privacy" tab. Then select "Only people with a password" and enter a password. Please don’t disable downloads. Then just email us the link and password at submissions@neontv.com and we’ll get back to you in a few days.
