Listed by View details

If you are selected for audition, the audition will consist of an online zoom meeting of up to 10 minutes that will not be recorded and will not be paid. A small selection committee will adjudicate. You will receive feedback and the result of your application before 30th July.

If you are selected for a role you will be paid at least £50 (negotiable) for up to 3.5 hours of online rehearsal (not recorded) and up to 0.5 hours of performance (recorded). This assumes that the app is free. Should the app or its rights be sold as a result of your participation then your further remuneration would be part of the deal.

You will be a participant in a small zoom meeting that will be recorded, that recording being used to advertise the app. You will be able to use the video on your StarNow profile. Your script will be tailored to enable you to introduce your character and for you to give a truthful feedback. Your script may include dialogue both in English and a foreign language that will be featured in the app at the same time.

I will run a special version 'Jigguess EN RU' (English/Russian) Android App (using Bluestacks on my Windows10) that will include several other language options to be shown on the screen for a commentary and audio/video participation with you and other members of the cast for recording in real time.

During rehearsals you will be invited to make your own comments or solve the anagrams - content to be included in the final scripts. A phrase in a foreign language of the phrase that contains the target word may be displayed, as will the English phrase with the target word blanked out.

About the app:

Whilst the app contains over 1000 English phrases currently, of which a few are translated into different languages as clues, the app will be extended to include translations in several languages and fonts if the advertising is successful.

The app is intended for use by all ages in its single language form, the phrase lists being compiled by educationalists if funding permits. As a revision tool the phrase list could include extracts from the subject being studied.

In its bilingual form the app will be useful for demonstrating spelling, grammar and pronunciation in the target language.

A recent Radio 4 programme demonstrated how a bilingual approach can aid dementia sufferers, or delay the onset of dementia. A particular phrase can refresh memories, sometimes when it is presented in an alternative language. I have led creative writing groups where a phrase can seed a whole variety of short stories from members. Perhaps this could happen in care homes also.

Some participants, or viewers of the video, may wish to collaborate in the design of the app and/or its content. Someone may offer to advertise my apps or help with a crowdfunding project.

Thank you for your attention, I look forward to your response.
