    They're 30 seconds too. But nobody pays that much attention.

    Yeah, but you never know when the rules will be strictly enforced! Don't let an extra second of material cost you a spot in Area 55!

    I finally get to audition this year. Many of you have met me at the tailgating by Arby's.

    I'm going to do the live audition. Any tips? What should I expect?

    1.) Treat it like a job interview without the suit and tie.

    2.) Also, PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE! You don't want to freeze up in the middle of your live audition while you are cutting your promo.

    3.) Be yourself, and use EVERY tool you have at your disposal. Watch some of the live audition tapes from last year for examples.

    For the record, I will be wearing a suit. No tie though. Haha!

    Here's my main question: what do you think would get a better response, a "personality" based audition, or a "loud/rowdy" based audition?

    I don't know what the difference is.... I'm just being myself (albeit maybe being cranked up to 11) when I do these things (yes, I really am that insane in the day job).

    Anyone having trouble submitting their video? When I push the "submit" button for the MP4 video I made through Imovie, I eventually get kicked out of the website and have no idea whether the video was uploaded. Rob, can you please advise? Thanks.

    Try converting it to F4V (Flash video).

    Imovie converts to MOV, m4V and MP4, the first two of which are deemed incompatible for uploading according to the Area 55 website.

    People and their Macs.

    Okay, new idea, kind of roundabout, but this should work:

    1.) Upload video to Youtube
    2.) Take URL of Youtube video and go to keepvid.com, paste the URL into there.
    3.) Choose to download your video in FLV format.
    4.) Take FLV version of the film to pacersarea55.com and submit.
    5.) ????

    Thanks for the suggestion. I'm thinking it has to be something to do with the actual submission process from the website (which now says that MP4 and MOV files are compatible for upload). Hopefully Rob can shed some light on this. For all I know, my video may have actually been uploaded after all, despite the fact that I was kicked out off the submission page.

    Keep an eye on the site. If you don't see it tomorrow, then it didn't get submitted.

    Ben Schwartz of Parks and Rec / House of Pies is auditioning for Area 55? I assume (since he resides in Los Angeles) that this is just a joke, but I could be wrong. I know I couldn't say no to Jean-Ralphio.

    The actor/comedian is responsible for one of the best bits on Parks and Rec:

    Thanks for the kind comments guys! I hope to officially join you in the ranks this season. No more riding the wife's coat tails! Competition will be tough though. Only seen a couple of the vids so far but you gotta wonder how Roy could possibly NOT pick the creator of Little Roy for Season 3!
