Bollywood star Suniel Shetty has planned an interesting challenge to engage the youth and set their creative juices flowing, while simultaneously allowing talent to showcase their skills without hindrance or worry. And at a time when auditions are next to impossible, it provides job opportunities to thousands of talent worldwide. Considering social distancing holds the potential to affect films auditions for a long, long time and in-person auditions may become a luxury, this is a godsend.
Suniel Shetty’s company FTC Talent Media & Entertainment Pvt Ltd and its team, with its newly appointed CEO Omar Qureshi (the well-known movie expert) have put together ‘FTCShorts’ - a Short film challenge that can be created at home using your mobile phone. The movie must be shot within your home and you can act in it as well. You can also use your family members, pets, and other props (all that’s available at home) if needed.


Registered talent of FTC Talent Media & Entertainment company can participate in the contest. That’s not so difficult if you’re an actor, filmmaker, or editor- even if you are a beginner. Simply log onto https://www.ftctalent.com/  and register and you can send in as many entries as you like. The best part is that the registration is absolutely free!


The rules are simple
To be a part of this challenge, you simply have to follow these primary rules:
1. You must register as talent (actor, director, writer, editor, etc) to participate. Registration is free.
2. You can send in as many entries as you like but the work must be an original creation and filmed at home.
3. You must only use a mobile to shoot though you can use editing and sound support from available resources.
4. All work must be original and not offensive to any caste, creed, religion, political outfit or any nationality or race.


FTC has lined up mega cash prizes and giveaways too for the best entries. With the biggest cash awards going to the top three films (makers), there are other super exciting prizes of hampers as well going to the best director, best actor, best sound and best editing, etc. The winning films will be showcased on television and/or on streaming platforms. And selected winners will be given opportunities to work on an upcoming film project! That’s not all. They will also get a chance to assist on an FTC Talent Media & Entertainment production under an able director.


Now audition at home and get a chance to work as an actor or assistant director on one of the big films being produced by FTC Talent Media & Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. What more can you ask for? Go register, aim and shoot. And win!
