The Audere Talent Corona Challenge Festival 2021
Welcome to The Audere Talent Corona Challenge Festival webpages.
Before viewing the entries, it's important that you're aware that each entry had to abide by a set criteria which included all of the following:
1. Each project should last no more than 15 minutes. Anything submitted that exceeds the 15 minutes allowance will be ineligible for voting and will not be included in any other subsequent Audere showcase or festival.
2. All participants must have equal 'on-camera' exposure (give or take 10 seconds). Voice-over is considered as exposure provided it is relevant to the character.
Each project must contain ALL of the following:
a) One reference to Donald Trump.
The reference need not be explicit (i.e. a background picture will suffice).
b) One character 4th wall glance.
One character at an appropriate time, will acknowledge the audience via a glance (but must not speak directly to the audience). Only one character can do this in the entire production and may only do so, once.
c) The explicit use of a chosen prop in plain sight.
The prop must be handled and passed from once character to another, at least once. The prop must be a bucket.
d) The explicit use of a spoken piece of dialogue
One character must use the line, "You wouldn't want that in your eye."
See if you can spot them!
All entries were also subjected to the standard rules on social distancing and COVID safety measures, therefore, for the most part, characters were filmed in isolation in various places around the UK unless the performers were already in an isolation bubble.
All clients that are represented by Audere Talent Management were invited to take part in the Audere Talent Corona Challenge Festival at the time of entry. Additionally, all artists were allowed to invite one person outside of the Agency to take part. We are aware of the lack of wider ethnic and cultural diversity being represented in this event which in no way reflects our approach, management nor attitude towards our responsibility to be decent and ethical human beings. All performers are volunteers and have not been paid.
PLEASE NOTE - VOTING HAS NOW CLOSED
