ASK DR. MEL
MY NAME WASN'T ON THE HIGHLIGHT LIST. DOES THIS MEAN I WON'T GET A CALLBACK?
Don't worry if your name isn't on the highlight list as it does not mean you will not have a callback. It means you didn't make the highlight list that week. Additionally, your name can be on the highlight list one week and off the next as we review all auditions. THIS HIGHLIGHT LIST IS NOT THE OFFICIAL CALLBACK LIST. AS THE NAME INDICATES IT IS A SPOTLIGHT OF OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCES. THE CALLBACK LIST WILL BE PUBLISHED ALL AT ONCE.
NO! AS WE ARE CURRENTLY REVIEWING ALL OF THE SUBMITTED ONLINE AUDITIONS THAT MADE IT TO THE DEADLINE OF MAY 30, 2011 BY MIDNIGHT. CALLBACKS FOR FACE-TO-FACE AUDITIONS ARE IN PROGRESS.
HOW DO I FIND MY AUDITION I POSTED ON FACEBOOK, IT DOESN'T SEEM TO BE THERE?
Your video isn't lost, but buried beneath 700 pages etc. To find your posted audition, go to the top of the Facebook site, click on the magnifying glass, and in the search bar, type your name. Your posted audition as well as all of your comments should come up. Just click on your audition and it will open up. If that doesn't work, search by character name.
WHY ISN'T THE KEYSTROKE KILLER LISTED ON IMDB?
I usually never list a project on IMDB until the last week of production, that way I can make sure all cast and crew are included. I don't like to double my work or efforts.
I also never submitted the short film version of The Keystroke Killer to IMDB. Maybe I should. However, I'm not certain if they would accept it because it was only released on You Tube. I never entered it into film festivals, never held a premiere, nor did I release it for sale. Therefore, I don't it meets IMDB guidelines. If anyone knows for sure, let me know.
IS THIS A SAG PROJECT?
It will be once we get closer to production. We respect SAG and what it stands for as I am a SAG actor myself.
SAG rules state that we have to be SAG prior to our first day of filming and recommends that we apply at least three weeks in advance of the shooting date. I have worked and produced SAG projects and I am very familiar with the process and all paperwork that goes with it. They require lots of information including finance contracts, actor contracts, director contracts, LLC paperwork, and escrow percentage of Actor's salaries. Since we don't even know who the cast is, we don't know who is SAG or who will have to have a Taft-Hartley. So, applying for SAG at this time is fruitless.

EPISODES: 13 FIRST SEASON - 62 TOTAL IF PICKED UP
