Most actor monologues are poorly shot, single angle shoots for auditions. We want to combine great acting with matching cinematography. Goal is to make monologues as visually interesting as possible. Also, re-enacting visually some of what they are describing is cool too.
The ground rules are fairly simple:
Should be between 2-4 minute total running time
No more than 3 locations
No actor can do more than 1 monologue in the series
The audience cannot hear anyone else speaking, on the other line or speaking to the actor
Try to avoid pop culture references (IE, no politicians, rock stars, movie stars, TV shows, or music talk if possible, but it's your choice)
Try to make it a half day shoot at the most
Do I care if you exactly follow the "rules""? Nope. Not really. It's your movie.
THERE IS NO COST, NO SUBMISSION FEES - nothing to participte. There are no prizes or 'winners' to this either.
