Want to be a show biz star? Helene Weinberg, Program Director at Long Beach Senior Arts Colony, reports that recently she’s been in touch with the casting director of NBC’s new spinoff show hosted by Steve Harvey called, “Little Big Shots – Forever Young.” They are seeking seniors 65 + with BIG personalities and special skills/talent. Helene told the casting director that LBSAC has a talent show scheduled in their theater on Thursday, February 16th @ 7pm, and they will video the performers that evening for audition submissions for the show.
If you don’t have a handy local talent show coming up, you can still make your own video and submit it from wherever you are. You don’t have to live in the LA area! Here are the instructions:
We are excited to pitch your act to the network for consideration on Little Big Shots – Forever Young! We look forward to receiving your home video submission to get to know your personality and hear a little of your backstory. We want to give you the best possible chance of making the show, so have a lot of energy and enthusiasm – really let yourself shine! It is also important to have the best quality video possible, so please tape in a quiet location with great lighting and a nice background. If you need technical support, please ask a friend or family member to help you! A great cameraman can make all the difference in the world.
Here are a few of the questions we would like you to answer during your video:
Please give us a lively introduction with your name, age and where you live.
Tell us about your special talent, how long you’ve been doing it, and how you started.
What did you do for a living when you were still working (if you are retired)?
Tell us about your family.
Do you have special hobbies and interests that make you uniquely you?
Give a “shout out” to Steve Harvey! Let him know you’re looking forward to being on Little Big Shots – Forever Young.
Tell Mr. Harvey what skill or life lesson you’d like to teach him when you come on the show, since he’s just a youngster at 59!
Do one more great introduction at the end since you’re all warmed up now.
Say “Goodbye” to Mr. Harvey and let him know you look forward to seeing him in LA!
Be sure to turn your phone long ways if you’re using your camera phone to tape your video. We want full landscape view, not the skinny strip of video!
Please upload videos to You Tube or Vimeo and send us the links. Do not edit or add effects – we have a pro in LA that will select clips and polish them for the presentation! You can also send via large file transfer service like Hightail, We Transfer or Dropbox.
Please send recent photos of you displaying your talent, as well as a nice individual shot of your face. If your act is a group, please send group photos. If you have additional performance videos, please send us those video links as well.
Thank you again for your interest in participating in the show! Let us know if you have any questions, and please send your videos in the next two weeks. If you need additional time, please let us know ASAP. We look forward to seeing your video!
Best of Luck!! Send submissions to:
