I read this BBC News article
It describes how filming for Michael Sheen's new film, Submarine, based on the novel by Swansea writer Joe Dunthorne, is casting its young roles online.
They are using an online auditioning site
to ask unknown talent to apply for the roles in the film.
Virginia Heath, creative director at thecastingscene.com has said more than 1,200 people had signed up to the site and more than 100 auditions of "previously undiscovered talent" have been submitted for Submarine roles.
Auditions are open until late on Monday.
She said: "It's really useful to people who are on the margins of things, wherever they are from.
"That's why it is nice it has been a Welsh project that's the first project we've experimented with.
"Obviously, young Welsh actors are not in London and they are not at the centre of things, so it is great to give them an opportunity to take their own future in their hands and put themselves forward.
"We've had auditions from kids in mid Wales who would probably never have heard of the casting session or got to them."
Is this something that National Theatre Wales should also be examining as a way of casting? Or is it a bit too "X-Factor" for your tastes? Could this be used for casting a wide range of roles, or is this working particularly well because it is casting amongst a relatively small group of people (Welsh teenagers)?
Are any of you out there applying for this? Let us know how it goes! x
