When submitting your “VIDDIE” (video selfie), please take note of suggestions here:


  1. Tell us your name, age, and occupation;

  2. Tell us why you want to be a part of this film, i.e. you've always wanted to learn to surf, or you want to travel and clean up your life, find a new direction, start fresh-- whatever it is that motivates you to take part in this special experience;

  3. When shooting the viddie, be careful to not only shoot yourself talking to the camera. Show us your world: your home, your work, your friends, your hobbies. Share what makes you, you;

  4. When finishing this masterpiece highlighting your life, make sure that it is no longer than three (3) minutes in length, that it is in focus, and that sound is clean, as these excerpts may be used in the film itself and/or as part of our online casting campaign;

  5. REQUIRED: At the end of the viddie, you must say, “I approve the gratis (free) viewing and use of my image in the casting for Ruta Del Sol, for any and all usage related to the casting, shooting and marketing of the film and any ancillary usage related to said film.”

  6. Share your viddie and our website with your friends, family, and the world via your social network. Getting the word out on this amazing opportunity and event gets everyone involved.  Even if you're not picked, you're still part of the production!
