The NBC Talent Infusion Programs department seeks fresh, unique, and exceptional behind-the-camera and front-of-camera talent for all NBCUniversal shows. We provide talented creative individuals an opportunity to get their materials in front of key decisions makers from the entire NBCUniversal family as well as agents, managers, producers, and other industry players.

Our efforts are dedicated to diversifying and expanding the landscape of television. We particularly encourage women and people of diverse backgrounds to apply. 

  

As part of its ongoing commitment to diversity & inclusion, NBCUniversal and its employee resource group the Veterans Network @ NBCUniversal is partnering with SAG-AFTRA to host an ON-CAMERA AUDITION BOOTCAMP this summer in Los Angeles.

This ONE-DAY Intensive course is geared as a professional enrichment opportunity specifically for people who are serving or have served in the military and who are pursuing acting in film and television. The goals of this course are to demystify the casting experience, provide insight and develop tangible tools that will better prepare an actor to create a unique and dynamic audition. Show off how you win the role in the room or hear what is possibly hindering you from booking. 

This is NOT an “acting” course, but intended for talent with previous training who wish to sharpen their audition technique skills with professional guidance.

WHEN IS THIS AWESOME EVENT? THURSDAY AUG 22, 2019

TIME: 12-4pm

WHERE? Frank Maxwell Room at SAG-AFTRA, 5757 Wilshire Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90036

HOW MUCH IS THIS GONNA COST ME? It’s ABSOLUTELY FREE for all accepted participants & all auditors.

WHO CAN SUBMIT TO PARTICIPATE? Any member of SAG-AFTRA in good standing with experience in any branch of the military. 

HOW MANY WILL BE CHOSEN: A maximum of 12 actors will be selected to participate and 20 actors can audit with the chance to perform as an alternate.

HOW DO I SUBMIT? Provide: headshot, resume, reel or recent video of on-camera performance. Don’t have one? Use your phone and shoot a contemporary COMEDIC or DRAMATIC monologue of choice from a recent TV show or film.

WHEN ARE SUBMISSIONS OPEN? JUNE 20, 2019 – JULY 4, 2019

WHEN WILL I BE NOTIFIED IF I AM SELECTED?  By JULY 26, 2019
