Cycle of Stories is supposed to be a highly immersive Alternate Reality Game (ARG) told in a fairly linear fashion that will maximize player interaction. It is told in an episodic style, and also requires actors to interact with viewers and players.
ARGs are interactive narratives, told through a variety of media such as YouTube, Twitter, email, phone calls, real life events, and any other avenue available. The story can be affected by the actions and responses of the players, making ARGs the next generation of choose your own adventures, but played in a communal environment.

I started on Explore Talent in March and immediately found my first audition for a voice over part. When I went for the audition, I didn't get the voice over...because they cast me for a supporting role. Next I self submitted to audition for a supporting role in a movie about a NY Crime Family Boss. I didn't get that part either...because they cast me as the LEAD!! Then I self submitted for a supporting role in another film and got that one. Yes, there have been others that I have submitted for but have either not gotten the call or had to turn down the audition due to conflicts (but that is a great feeling, when you can't do it- BECAUSE YOU ARE WORKING!!!) While these haven't been paid gigs, my resume has gone from basically nothing for the last 30 years to a nicely rounded experience grouping. As a result I now have 2 SAG Franchised agents to which I am signed. - Thanks for a great start Explore Talent!
