The Audition Tape

1 Comment

My 11 year old son, Blair, wants to be a movie director when he grows up and asked if he could attend Denver School of the Arts so he has a better shot at getting into a good film program someday. The audition process was as grueling as getting into college. He needed a 2:00 film, an essay, a resume, a storyboard and examples of his graphic work. Then there was the interview and test. And of course he needed to show passion and enthusiasm. A process not for the faint of heart. We are still waiting to hear if he got in but I thought you might be interested in seeing his film. He has been at this since he was 7 and even has his own company called Figure Productions. The motto is “Go Figure.” You can see more of his work and ideas at He’s very talented (if I do say so myself) and I’m so proud of my little Steven Spielberg.
