So You Wanna Be A DiVA?!!

Well then you're in luck!!

In upcoming episodes of DiVAS, there's going to be a big need for an in world group has been founded for those who'd like to come join us in the fun!!

If you're interested, and you KNOW you are!, please read all the info and boring but necessary legalese after the cut, then join the DiVAS ExTRAS group and let's have some fun!!! <333

The DiVAS ExTRAS group will be available to all residents interested in particpating in the show. Casting calls will be announced at the producers discretion, any time of the day or night, weekend or weekday so all time zones are encouraged to join. DiVAS celebrates many things, especially social diverity. It is the colorful people who populate our world that make it entertaining! And we need people from all walks of Second Life; Men, women, humans, elves, furries, tinies, young, old, vampires, every shape and size you can imagine.

**Note** This is a non-paid position. Participation is completely voluntary. DiVAS is a non-commercial entity.

We politely request you have a current photo on your profile! We need to know what you look like! We also request that you do not Instant Message the cast or crew for information on call times. We rarely are capable of providing advance notice, so our announcements for casting will be random. We can only consider group members who are online at the time of the call.

Remember: filming can take a considerable amount of time. If you are engaged in an activity or have obligations within one (1) hour of the call, please do not respond to a call. This is for the sake of continuity.

We hope you consider having some fun with us!

And because our Lawyers say so, here is the legal fine print.

* An invitation to participate in DiVAS does not suggest or imply that the participant posseses any ownership of the series, in whole or in part, the episode in which they may appear, storylines, ideas, concepts, characters, nor does inclusion imply a partnership with or between the production company, or any of it’s subsidiaries with the participant.

* Participant understands and agrees that an invitation or inclusion does not permit them any authority to act on behalf of the show, it’s creator, cast, crew or production entity, nor does it entitle any individual to represent themselves as a designated figure or spokesperson, or to negotiate on behalf of the show, the cast or production crew, with any third party.
