Clapit is the talent discovery app that removes the barriers between actors and Hollywood decision makers. The two winners of clapit’s #richardrossi open call will receive speaking roles in Canaan Land, a feature film by award-winning director Richard Rossi.

The winners will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Los Angeles for the shoot in January 2018. Actors will receive credit in the film and on the films’ IMDb page, plus a copy of the completed project. This is a non-union production. Only people ages 13+ who are legal residents of the USA are eligible to enter. There is no charge to download clapit or enter the contest. IMPORTANT: Clapit reserves the right to disqualify any Entrant in breach of Section 6 of the Official Rules.


Canaan Land is a drama about a female faith healing evangelist who falls in love with a con man. For your 20-second video audition, improvise a monologue based on one of the following options:

Option 1: You are a college news reporter pitching your story about exposing a religious con man to a skeptical editor.

Option 2: You are a con artist trying to make someone fall in love with you.


  1. Download clapit from the iTunes App Store.

  2. Between November 30 - December 20, 2017, post one 20-second video audition onto clapit based on one of the character breakdowns. Be sure to write #richardrossi and the option you chose (Option 1 or 2).

  3. Invite your family, friends & fans over text, email & social media to download clapit and “clap” (vote) for your performance.

  4. Director Richard Rossi will choose one male winner from the top five most clapped male auditions and one female winner from the top five most clapped female auditions.
