Audition 2021 — Finally Finished & Behind The Scenes

I. Behind-The-Scenes of the Black One Audition Team

This is how our audition backend looks:

Green marking means interesting/potential. Yellow means the aforementioned potential late callback. Grey is unsuccessful. Purple means file was not accessible/missing/erased. Statistically about 1 out 100 is a green and 3–5 yellow and 3–5 are purple. This time out of the thousands we had quite a lot of green and yellows meaning the quality of auditions got even better but also competition fiercer.
Some of the people out of this audition that we would like to get to know a bit better. Check your email inbox. This is to show: yes people exist who get into the next round and also into the challenges. And to give you a feeling, this list still goes on and more than 10 this time were straight away green. Plus a few of the yellow (which is many more) might be also contacted later.

III. Common Questions & Answers

Have you “really “ watched all submissions? — Yes, it’s in our interest to find the best (matching) talent. But beware checking the submission doesn’t mean that we’re going to watch long playlists of videos (unless we’re interested). It’s also important to mention that all data stays confidential and isn’t shared with third parties.
