    I saw this audition and did not submit because it was asking for LA based talent.. I live in Scottsdale, AZ and am willing to travel to LA ( a short one hour plane ride) but did not know if my audition would be waived by when the casting group realized I am not based in LA, your thoughts? otherwise, I would love to audition for this project. Would appreciate your input on this …
    Thank you,
