The National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) will present the LatinX Streaming Showcase, which highlights six short scenes written, performed and directed by Latinos. 400+ entertainment industry executives, talent representatives, and casting directors will stream the event. The goal of the showcase is for participants to establish relationships with key industry executives and ultimately break into network television.
Submit your self-taped video, headshot, resume, and reel (if available) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You must be a registered member to view submissions. Please contact email@example.com for more information.

Call For Actors
PLEASE READ INSTRUCTIONS THOROUGHLY – if submitted incorrectly, your tape will not be viewed. We receive hundreds of submissions and cannot notify everyone of their edits, so please follow all of the instructions.
SUBMIT YOUR SELF TAPE, HEADSHOT, RESUME, AND REEL (If available) TO SHOWCASE@NHMC.ORG
You can submit for up to two roles. One video per role. The Self-tape should begin with a slate of your name, role you’re reading for, and then go into the audition. Please note: Actors will need to provide their own readers for the self-tape.
Actors will send their self-tape auditions via an unlisted downloadable link (Google Drive, DropBox, Vimeo, YouTube, WeTransfer, Hightail) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Subject Line: LSS – First Name, Last Name / ROLE (Ex: LSS – Felicia Mora / TERESA)
Make sure it is a link and NOT a video that needs to be downloaded.
Be sure to exclude a password or permission tied to email addresses. Make the video public as we will be sharing these videos with casting directors and don’t want to have the extra step of requesting access.
Helpful Tips include:
- Use a tight medium frame
- Choose an area with good lighting
- Minimal background noise, and neutral background/backdrop
- Readers should be placed behind the camera/offscreen
- Actors eye-line should interact with the reader, and not directly at the camera
- Sides are ok to hold and use as a guide, but not continuous reading – we want to see your performance.
- Clothing: no need to dress fully as the role but mindful (ex. police officer/doctor/judges roles – no need to wear a uniform, but also don’t just wear a tank top)
