Casting Call - MTV's The Paper
Extra! Extra! Read all about it! MTV is casting for The Paper, a new reality show that delves into the ins and outs of a high school newspaper. Get more info right here so you can apply to be on the show!
The Paper - MTV's Latest Project
The Paper may not sound as exciting as American Idol or Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County, but trust us, it will be! MTV crews and cameras want to come into your school to get the inside scoop on your high school newspaper. They want to find out what goes on behind the scenes of the newspaper and follow you around as you search for the latest breaking news and battle it out for who and what goes on the front page. MTV also wants to know about the lives of the newspaper staff outside of school, like who you're crushin' on and who's crushin' on you! Being selected for The Paper could launch your future journalism career... or just put you in the spotlight and send you to Hollywood, much like Laguna Beach did for Kristin Cavallari.
The Paper - Calling All Student Reporters
The Paper is accepting applications via video submission, so here's what you need to do. Make a video of a tour of your newspaper office, a typical staff meeting and sit-down interviews with all the staff members and advisors. The sit-down interview includes questions like what grade you're in, what your responsibilities on the newspaper staff are, why you're interested in the news, what your hobbies are, who you're dating and a whole slew of other questions. Take as much time as you need to answer the questions and be yourself cuz MTV wants to know the real you, not someone who's just putting on a show for the cameras.
The Paper - Video Application Details
When making your video, you'll have to use a miniDV, DVD or VHS. Send your video tape, along with a recent copy of your newspaper, to:
770 Broadway, #10-58D
New York City, New York 10003
Attn: Claresa Mandola
