QUALIFICATIONS: Temple-worthy members of the LDS Church (ages 12 and older) who are expressive and comfortable on camera, and who are willing to share their thoughts and feelings about the temple.

1. Choose ONE of the questions listed below:

QUESTION #1: How has the temple helped you overcome challenges and find joy?

QUESTION #2: How have your temple experiences helped you become a better person?

2. Video your response to the question. State your FULL NAME and the CITY where you live at the beginning of your video. Please limit your response to no more than TWO MINUTES.

Video tips:
·         Make sure lighting is good
·         Make sure voice is clear
·         Minimize ambient noises (cars, kids, etc.)
·         Casual attire is fine

What we look for:
·         Did you follow directions (including submission guidelines)?
·         Did you answer the question clearly and concisely?
·         Do you appear relaxed and natural on camera?
·         Does your voice sound genuine and believable?
·         Is the video quality acceptable?
3. Upload your audition video to a video sharing website (such as YouTube or Vimeo.)    Mark your video “unlisted” so it may be viewed by simply clicking the URL link. DO NOT mark your video “private” or require a password. Please upload ONE VIDEO ONLY.

4. Complete the form below to submit your information, photos, and URL link to your audition video.

You will be asked to upload two current photos as jpg files no larger than 2MB each:
a.      Headshot (from about the chest upward). Doesn’t need to be a professional photo.  A digital snapshot with your phone is fine as long as the photo is in focus and has good lighting so we can see your entire face clearly. Avoid obstructions such as hats, head-coverings, or sunglasses.
b.      Profile shot that clearly shows your unobstructed face from the side.

If you have any questions, please contact us at

Thank you!
