Performers at AMTC’s Summer 2013 SHINE Conference reveal what they think you should know about…
Dress in neat, casual, age-appropriate clothes—nothing dressy, nothing sexy. Keep your appearance fresh and clean. If you wear makeup, keep it minimal or none at all. We like to see your hair natural. If it’s curly, wear it curly. If it’s straight, wear it straight. This will give us the best idea of what you really look like.
Singers and dancers do not need to wear costumes.
If possible, bring a snapshot that we can keep to remember you. *You don’t need to bring professional photos. We will take an additional photo on site with your AMTC audition number.
Dancers prepare a 30 second – one minute routine. Bring music and your own boom box or speakers.
Singers prepare a 30 second – one minute song a cappella (without accompaniment).
Singer/Songwriters may bring a guitar, keyboard, or instrument.
Actors prepare a 30 second – one minute monologue or read a script provided by AMTC.
Models will walk for our Scout.
Everyone must read a script. Download sample audition scripts
We encourage you to fill out the AMTC audition application online, print it, and bring it with you. If you forget it or are unable to print it, you can fill one out on site.
Singers must sing a cappella. However, singer-songwriters may bring a guitar or keyboard.
The minimum age to audition is 4. As far as bringing toddlers to watch you or a family member audition, an AMTC audition is fun, but serious. If your child can’t sit quietly through the information session and audition, please leave him or her with a baby-sitter.
We encourage teens and adults to bring both parents, a spouse, or anyone who loves you and is interested in your future. AMTC is a life changing event and a one-of-a-kind company. Your loved ones will not only learn more about AMTC, but also about the entertainment industry in general, including how it works for performers who seek to honor God. In addition, they will get to watch you audition and meet the scout.
Dancers should bring a boom box or speakers to play their dance music.
AMTC is looking for actors, models, singers, dancers and comedians who love God and feel a calling to perform: ages 4 – 84!
The AMTC audition is more than an audition. It begins with an information session: It’s an insider’s look at the entertainment industry and what it takes to succeed. Most importantly, you’ll find out about God’s movement to launch models, actors, singers, and dancers as role models and stars. After the information session, individual auditions will begin. The audition process usually takes about 2-4 hours, depending on your arrival and the # who are auditioning during your time period. *Video and photography is prohibited.
Does your child love to perform? Kids who are gifted for the entertainment industry often (but not always) start performing around their house at an early age; they may mimic TV commercials or put on skits for family and friends; they speak easily to strangers; they are verbal and smart. Some are beautiful. Some are characters! The most important attribute for children in modeling or entertainment is an outgoing personality! Your child must be at least 4 years old. (Occasionally, AMTC will accept a very mature 3 year old.)
Yes. You are encouraged to audition in whatever you feel called to do: acting, modeling, singing, or dance—even stand up (or all five).
Everyone must read or perform a script. No matter how gifted you are in modeling, singing, or dance, acting is the foundation of the entertainment industry—including fashion and music. Give us your best effort. We don’t expect you to be a pro. If you have good potential in modeling, singing, stand up, or dance, AMTC has coaches who will teach you how to act if you are willing. You can download an AMTC script, prepare a short monologue (30 seconds), or get a script on site.
Singing or dancing groups are welcome to audition as an ensemble. However, we will also want to see you individually, depending on the group size. Group size maximum is four. *We do not have time for band set ups.
The AMTC SHINE event in Orlando is attended by 50-100 of the top Agents, Managers, Casting Directors, and Music Industry Professionals in the world. It’s a “Who’s Who” list of industry insiders who can make careers happen. Success is all about “What You Know” and “Who You Know.” If you are accepted in the AMTC Bridge Program, we’ll teach you what you need to know and put you in front of who you need to see. For more on our “VIP’s,” take a look at the VIP Section of our main website.
AMTC calls back performers we believe are mission-minded, who possess a teachable spirit and have an earnest desire to become role models in the entertainment industry. AMTC maintains high performance standards. We prayerfully consider each audition.
AMTC does not charge a fee for the information session and audition. If you are invited to join the AMTC program, we do have a fee for the Bridge Training Program and to attend the six-day SHINE event. The AMTC package is detailed in the FAQ section of the main amtcworld.com website.
