Actress Masiela Lusha Partners With 2 Le Jit Productions to Find Hollywood's Next Breakout Actress Through Online Contest, "Starfall Search"

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 13, 2015) - 2 Le Jit Productions, an innovative and dynamic new production company, has just enlisted television/film actress Masiela Lusha (George Lopez Show) as their spokesperson to assist with the company's nationwide social media hunt for Hollywood's next great leading lady. The search takes the form of an acting contest, in which aspiring actresses are invited to submit audition videos for a chance to win a $50,000 grand prize and be offered the opportunity to star in 2 Le Jit Production's 2016 feature film Starfall, written, produced and directed by company CEO Ervin Peter. Contest rules and terms are available here.

"Masiela Lusha was specifically chosen as our spokesperson for her artistic expertise and industry experience," says Ervin Peter. "I'm very excited to have her help in evaluating contestant's auditions and to find that one untapped talent who deserves a breakout role in my film."

The first round of the contest has now begun during which aspiring actresses (18+) in the United States and Canada may submit a set of three self-recorded video audition monologues via the 2 Le Jit Productions' website. Contestants will be required to send in a performance from each of the following classic stage plays: Three Sisters (Anton Chekhov), A Doll's House (Henrik Ibsen) and Miss Julie (August Strindberg). The monologues are now available at Facebook.com/2LeJitProductions.

In their search for the next great undiscovered talent, 2 Le Jit Productions' use of an online acting contest, together with social media and celebrity guidance, represents a radical departure from the traditional Hollywood casting process.

"Starfall is going to require a new type of actress to play the lead -- perhaps unlike anyone we've ever seen before," says Ervin Peter. "And using a conventional casting approach would only get us conventional results."

Masiela Lusha states, "The film industry has entered a new era of casting with 2 Le Jit Productions' 'Starfall Search' and it is an absolute dream to embrace the process alongside Ervin Peter. Together we will discover talent from across the country and grant individuals the right to pursue their Hollywood goals through social media. I feel this will redefine filmmaking and it is exciting to be in the front row as we progress."

Those interested in showcasing their talents can register today at 2LeJit.com for a chance to be discovered and become entertainment's newest "IT" girl!
