Greeting from Studio 1 at Ocean Campus at City College of SF,
We're looking for telegenic and charismatic people who are high-energy but relaxed in public speaking environments to be the face of our new, HD-based 30 minute Television program series called "IDTV".
If chosen, your work as the IDTV host will be to host IDTV as on-screen talent introducing the show itself, program segments and packages, interview guests and to work with producers and writers. IDTV shows are broadcast on local TV to 220,000 viewers in the Bay Area via Channel 27 & 75 (SF/Comcast cable) and also via a dedicated internet video channel. Next to working with upcoming video professionals from the show, you'll generate great materials for both a DVD and an online reel.
On-camera auditions will be held ONLY on Wed. 23 and Fri 25th of February (10AM-12:30PM). Please let me know when you plan on coming:
Day: Wed, the 23rd OR Fri, the 25th
Time: Early 10-11 OR Middle 11-12 OR Later 12-12:30
Where: AUDITIONS will be TV Studio at City College of San Francisco Ocean Campus (ARTX 164 - close to the student health center).

We hope to see you at the auditions!
All attendees will be able to audition from a teleprompter script and with improvisational material for at least 10 min (more if time allows). We'll have as much of the daily schedule set as possible but allow for additional time (≈ 1hour) when you arrive. We'll provide a short, simple introduction script to the show as well as a short intro script to a guest interview - that you can read from a camera teleprompter - and we'll ask you to improvise for a few minutes also to get to know your style.
No specific attire is expected, but we suggest wearing clothes that you're comfortable in but that are appropriate to a host of a college TV magazine show.
