Audition Description

Got a speaking part in a full-length Movie Exploretalent is so helpful for people that aren't on the East or West coast. I have lots of auditions to go to, but many areas are too far away. ExploreTalent uses the whole U.S., and I went to my first audition (in Minnesota) and got a speaking part in a full-length movie, and want to thank Explore Talent for the opportunities it opens up to me.
