I was putting in several DVDs recently that include 'Screen Tests' of actors auditioning for the roles in the specific film.

Am I right in thinking we have no box to tick for this?

No, we have Featurettes.

There is a huge difference between a screen test and a featurette.

On one hand I would like to see it added.

On the other hand I really don't see it enough to make me think it is worth it.

But it is something I put in Other Features.

It's not video documentary material regarding the film or those associated with it?

Which doesn't match?

- video material
- documentary material
- regarding the film
- regarding those associated with it

I'd like to see a feature checkbox for this, yes. Semantics aside, an isolated screen test/audion tape really isn't a featurette, just like an isolated interview isn't a featurette. So yeah, I support giving this it's own checkbox.

A interview is video documentary material regarding the film or those associated with it, too. But someone thought a interview important enough to have its own check box. I'm against splitting up video documentary material into countless sub "Features".
