'Making It' Season 4: Here's how to apply for NBC's craft reality show
NBC is yet to order another season for 'Making It', and meanwhile if you are good at any kind of craft then go ahead and give the show a shot
Although bosses at NBC are yet to order a fourth season, we feel there's more coming from the crafting competition series. 'Making It' Season 3 premiered with eight makers who were tasked to create DIY projects with nostalgia and family as central themes. The fast craft round had them create toys from their childhood and the next was all about paying a tribute to the families. Becca Barnet and Adam Kingman emerged winners of rounds one and two, respectively. There were no eliminations. Instead, hosts Nick Offerman and Amy Poehler introduced new crafters Melanio Gomez and Kara Walker.
Sounds interesting, doesn't it? Well, you can be a part of it too. The network has an easy peasy screening process that requires you to fill a form. Now, we only have to wait for the creators to greenlight Season 4. Meanwhile, you can catch up on a bunch of craft shows and reality competition series to keep you busy. 'Craftopia', 'Blown Away', 'Sugar Rush' and 'Nailed It!'.
How to apply for 'Making It' Season 4?
The NBC site currently has an application form and information about the current season. But, it's unlikely that the process will change drastically for next year. The team of 'Making It' is an open-minded bunch and it helps that everyone on it is a craft lover, especially Offerman and Poehler. For these two, it's Candyland.
The show is inviting anyone who is "a household hacker, a DIY decorator, a quilter, knitter, a scrapbooker, basket weaver, needle pointer, wood worker, accessory or jewelry maker, doll maker, textile maker, shibori expert, potter, hand-builder, paper crafter, leather or denim worker, costume maker, an artisan or maker of any type… basically any super creative person who loves making things by hand."
Once you know which category you fit into, filling up the 44-question-long form shouldn't be tough. Once done, interested crafters must upload a 2-3 minute self-video. It may be recorded on phone. This is just to get a better look at the maker. The selectors expect you to tell them "fun facts about yourself" and show "a few of your favorite pieces or talk about the inspiration behind your art".
Those experiencing trouble submitting their forms or uploading media can email the channel at: [email protected] The email should contain city/ state, contact information and the name of the casting producer if spoken to one. Please note that the application procedure stands valid only if the network doesn't decide to tweak the existing process and orders a new season.
