how does one,audition for the show. i have been doing special effects make for a while.it would be a thrill to try.
andrew says:
Face Off had a great start last week. The format is fairly typical for a reality-show but the subject matter really makes this one come alive. As a DISH Network subscriber/employee I am glad I was able to watch this one in HD. High Definition is almost a necessity for a show like this where every detail really matters. If you don’t currently have HD I recommend making the switch. The prices for HD TV’s have gotten very reasonable and DISH offers HD Free for Life with all of their top packages. You’ll be amazed at the difference.
