Can screen testing help you craft a better video story?

A screen test is kind of like a job interview for actors.  But if you’re making documentary or a factual project, and you don’t have actors, why would you need to do a screen test? Today I’m going to share with you why it’s still going to be a very useful tool for you in your pre production.

Welcome to this weeks episode of Moonshine Moonshot, I’m your host Sue Collins and this is where I share with you all the things I’ve learned making content for the past 15 years or more.  I am also excited to let you know that the Moonshine Communications Academy is now open for enrolments so if you want to dive deeper into what I’m sharing with you, then that is the place to do it.

But back to todays episode, - screen tests!

I’m a huge advocate for screen testing your proposed talent as soon as it’s possible but definitely during the pre production phase. I know it might sound like “extra work” but I promise, it can go a long way in helping you cast the right people in your film or video. And by the right people, I mean those who are not only meaningfully tied to your video’s topic, but those who can also relate to and engage your ideal audience.

Let's dive into the episode.
