Thank you to those of you who have shared your introductory videos with the group. There are still many of you who havn't and we'd love you to meet you and for you to share your talent with your fellow 2020 Aussie All-Stars cohort! Here's the challenge... Using your phone, film the following things either in the one video or creatively edit it all together and post it in the closed Facebook group under the post:
* Introduce yourself
* Tell us your name and age
* Tell us what drama academy or school you are from
* Tell us your most memorable performance experience
* Tell us what you are looking forward to the most about being in America in January
* Sing us something
For the song, you can choose to sing the full song or just the part you feel you do the best. For the song you need to have backing behind you. This can be a backing track played from another devise as long as the sound level balances are okay for us to hear both the backing and your voice equally (best to do a sound check for yourself before posting) OR you may choose to do it in a singing lesson with piano accompaniment (or accompany yourself if you are clever kid!)
Introduction video messages will be due by Friday 5th April at the latest. Please make sure you post your introduction video message in the comments under this post on FACEBOOK.
Your online portal requests that you upload your passport. We already have a copy of your passport on file so please don't stress about uploading this onto your portal.
Ladies and Gentlemen....drum roll please!!!!!
