Steal Away Director's Notes

Director’s Fast-Track Audition Viewing

Realm is committed to breaking brilliant undiscovered talent. 


We believe that some of the most extraordinary actors have yet to be “discovered,” in large part because of the challenges they face getting their auditions seriously considered via the traditional casting processes. To level the playing field, Realm is not only engaging the major agencies in casting Steal Away, but giving actors a powerful means of getting their auditions potentially directly seen by the Director. 
 

After submitting your audition through the breakdown service that provided your sides, we invite you to follow the steps below to post your audition on TikTok. The Producers will be directly monitoring TikTok for auditions that rise to their attention, and outstanding talent brought to their attention will be fast-tracked to the Director for consideration. 


(Posting your audition online is purely optional, and will have no bearing on the audition you submit through the breakdown service being seen by our Casting team.) 

First, Submit Your Audition through the Breakdown Service

First, see the Director’s Note for the character you are auditioning for on the appropriate CHARACTER CARD at the bottom of this page, then self-tape and submit your audition through the breakdown service that provided your sides. 


Important: Please self-tape your audition in PORTRAIT format, not landscape, if you intend to post your audition on TikTok. Also, individual reads must not exceed TikTok’s maximum of 3 minutes (you may trim dialogue to shorten, if need be).

Next, Post Your Audition on TikTok

1. Review the material for your character:

  • Find the character you’ll be auditioning for among the CHARACTER CARDS below. Hover over the card for more information about that character. 

 

  • View the Director’s Note for your character. 

 

  • Download the sides for your character, or use the sides you have already received via one of the breakdown services. 

2. Self-tape your audition (skip if you have already done this):

  • Use PORTRAIT orientation, not landscape 

 

  • Individual scenes must not exceed TikTok’s maximum of 3 minutes. (You may trim dialogue to shorten, if need be)

 

  • Make sure your audition is filmed on or saved to your mobile device. 

3. Upload your audition to TikTok:

  • Log into your TikTok account or create a free account by downloading the app on your mobile device and signing up. 

 

  • Click the + button at the bottom of your device, and then click the “upload” option on the right side of the record button. 

 

  • Select your self-taped video. (Don’t add any sounds, filters, or effects) 

 

  • Click the subsequent NEXT buttons until you arrive at the POST page (But don’t post yet!)

 

  • Add the three hashtags on your CHARACTER CARD to the “Describe your video” area.

 

>This is extremely important. Adding all THREE hashtags for your character will enable us to correctly locate your audition. 


>DO NOT use hashtags for characters other than your character, as it will cause your submission to be omitted from consideration.

 

  • Click “Post” 

  • Once your audition is uploaded, click the three dots (...) on the right side of your audition

>Ensure that “Who can watch this video” is set to everyone.


>Adjust the other settings (comment, duet, stitch) as you please.

4. Follow Steal Away and Realm Pictures:

Steal Away features a large cast of over 65 speaking roles. Upcoming casting calls (including for the lead roles of The Fisk Jubilee Singers and several strong supporting roles), as well as callbacks and breaking production news will be first announced via social media.  To get all announcements, take a quick moment to follow the @stealawaymovie and @realmpictures TikTok accounts to stay up to date. 

5. Submit your audition:

  • On your audition video, click the share arrow, then “copy link.”

 

  • Return to this page, and complete the audition submission form, adding your or your agent's correct information.

 

  • Make sure to add your TikTok link to its designated form field.

6. Share your audition: 

  • Click the share arrow on the lower right side of your video.

  • Share your audition on all of your social media platforms to increase your audition’s recognition. Let your friends know that Realm is giving Movie Lovers the opportunity to like their favorite auditions to make the most liked stand out. 

7. Like other auditions:

Support your fellow actors by liking outstanding auditions that come to your attention on Tik Tok, and asking your friends to like theirs, using #StealAwayCasting 

Very best wishes from Steal Away’s Producers and Director. We look forward to seeing your work, and to hopefully seeing you on screen!
