In the audition episodes, we meet the top 50 applicants to the series, and see how they will be tested. First they are brought to Los Angeles to visit a real-life film set, many for their first time. Then the top 50 have to endure a "Hollywood Boot Camp" where they will wind up facing the judges, and many will be marked for elimination.

This series will feature a cast of 16 undiscovered filmmakers competing to win the support of the show's viewers, who will decide their fate in a weekly audience vote. After a global search already under way, applicants will be winnowed to a group of 16 talented filmmakers. These finalists will be brought to Hollywood, where they will be divided into teams and will begin the journey toward their "big break". Every week, the hopeful filmmakers will produce short films from a chosen genre, running the gamut from comedies to thrillers, personal dramas to romance, sci-fi to horror. They'll have access to the best resources the industry has to offer - professional writers, cast and crew, and possibly even Hollywood celebrities.
