HOW TO APPLY (NEW Deadline March 24, 9AM)

- Record a self tape with every family member who is applying together. Please remember that only the Abuela can apply individually. 

- Please shoot Landscape (horizontal) and NOT in Portrait. 

- In a medium shot (chest or waist up) each family member introduces themselves with name, age (children only) and if you like to play video games! What's your favourite game right now (if any). We encourage applicants to speak English and Spanish

- Shoot Scene 1: (improvise around these scenes and make it fun) The family is making dinner together (tamales, maybe?) We want to see each family member interact and speak. Spanish should dominate the scene, with some English also spoken (Abuela should only speak Spanish). The kids can ask if they can help. People can sneak in bites, ask when dinner will be ready, what's for dinner. etc. 

- Shoot Scene 2: The kids are already playing a fun golf game that uses motion controls in front of the TV.  Dad joins in, and Mom asks if it's a new game? She wants to join! Dad takes a turn and he messes up. Everyone laughs. Mom tries, and she gets a hole in one! Beginners luck. The kids ask for their turn again. Abuela sits and watches and laughs along. 

- We understand that some scenes will need to change based on who is auditioning together. Keep the main focus of these scenes and have fun. 

- Keep each scene under 2 minutes if possible. 

- Upload the videos to Google Drive, Dropbox, etc. Attachments are usually too large to send over. Make sure that the permission to view/download is not restricted (several people need to watch the audition). 

- Email with the subject line "The Course – Real Family - <your family name>". Include the link or attachment (must be Mp4) in the email. Please also include a photo of the family (or individual photos).  Also include your phone number, and city. You can also CC Please direct any questions to
