An actor needs the same vocal control as a singer.  At times they need to project emotional dialogue, like yelling or screaming, without tiring or damaging their voice. If they don’t understand how to bridge between chest voice and head voice, actors risk vocal issues like hoarseness and possibly vocal damage.

Steve Glazer Music is offering the winning actor of the “Emerging Talent – Acting” award five free one hour sessions of Actor Voice Training.

Founded in 2002 and one of the highest rated contests on MovieBytes, Screenplay Festival features four categories so that Drama, Comedy, Action/Adventure and Thriller/Horror scripts do not have to compete with each other.

100 Screenplays was created when one of the judges at Screenplay Festival, had an idea, “What if we hold a contest where we limited the number of entries to one hundred? We could get the judging done quickly. The writers would know who they are up against. The whole thing would be different.” This idea got kicked around the office until it grew into 100 Screenplays.
