Title: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 09, 2008, 11:36:42 AM
 I contacted Paramount Pictures about a week ago and asked them about the auditions they passed me onto the person who is supposed to have some info on the casting calls/auditions she told me that she had no idea when they were but that they were being done somewhere in New York by an independent casting director I called a few directors and companies but with number of Agencies and Directors I don't think that the list will ever end, eventually I gave up since it takes too long and there are not many chances of finding the person so I wouldn't try going with that option to find the auditions also logically the director can move from country to state to find unknowns so anyway he or she might not even be in New York :-\
I have seen a few people on forums saying that they were supposedly mailing Kevin Huvane of Creative Artists Agencies but what they didn't know is that it is probably and maybe sure that this email is a fake as a few other people called up the CAA and they clearly stated that they did not accept resumes and auditions just like that... I do not recommend that you send any of your personal details to this email :-[ Anyways I like probably lots of people have run out of ideas to find the actual auditions if anyone has called up any agencies, has any   info, knows something, anything just a tiny peace of info or tips to what we should do please feel free to post ;)

Thanks for the info...I ran out of breath just reading it. :p...Yeah, I'm a bit skeptic of the email right now, hopefully I will find some good info so I can let you all know. Thanks a lot, that's realy cool you've recieved that much info. mcuh appreciated.

Maybe we should try to talk with M Night Shyamalan ;D
I'm seriously.....
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on May 09, 2008, 05:18:35 PM
aw man this is definetly terrible. i'm afraid any day now they are gonna announce so and so's been cast and there would never had been a chance for the great ppl for the role who don't have representation. I mean if you called and called and still no leads there's really nothing left to do but hope that independent casting director will come forward with open castings. hey there's always that chance.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on May 09, 2008, 07:53:26 PM
We'll just keep hoping/praying or whatever. It'd be awesome to talk to Mnight, -}Zuko{-InMask-}, but that may be hard to do...sigh, if it was only that easy.  It is possible, I really Hope that at least one of you guys (hopefully quite a few of you guys) gets somewhere...
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 10, 2008, 05:56:29 AM
I have to call back an agency in Philadelphia after the happening comes out because they have worked with M. Night for practically all of his films including the latest one so lets keep our hopes up ;)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on May 10, 2008, 07:06:58 AM
Oh, Cool! Thank you...
If you don't mind, can you give out the number or PM it or something? If Calling the agency won't work for me, I'd like to try that one also.  ;) (you don't have to though)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 10, 2008, 07:09:20 AM
This is the site of the agency the number is on the contact page ;)
http://heerycasting.com/index.php
There is also a site with castings listed it is called backstage and I would check that everyday :D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on May 10, 2008, 07:11:34 AM
Oh, cool! Thanks again. :D

That site is pretty neat. I've just looked through it.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 10, 2008, 07:12:32 AM
Your welcome :D Btw what methods have you already tried to find the casting?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on May 10, 2008, 07:22:50 AM
Well, this site 8)
Also attempting to find good sites on Creative Artists agency, which lead to the contact info which I  will call them as soon as I can; my mom might try that too...if that wont work, I'm gonna write and attempt fax them (I need to go somewhere to do that)... I've emailed that one "audition" thing a question to test it out, which isn't working so I'm skeptic about the accuracy of it. And, I've been trying to google up anything that gives me god and useful news...but that part isn't working too great for me, guesssing I'm  being terrible at googling. I've also tried to use IMDB, but last time I checked, they have nothing on this film. :-\ Not the greatest stuff, but I'm trying.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 10, 2008, 07:26:08 AM
The first thing I did was to call the creative arstists agency but the person who answered the phone said that he had never heard of the movie before then I actually managed to find Kevin Huvanes contact phone (his receptionist or something like) but he told me that M.Night was not a regular client...
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 10, 2008, 10:40:45 AM
Which character would you audition for?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on May 10, 2008, 01:59:11 PM
Oh...well, i'll try anyways, and the Philly adrress...thanks for the heads up. :)

Well I'm hoping to go for Azula...then maybe Suki. I thought about Katara, but I'm still unsure on her. I heard my TyLee isn't bad though. ::) I know it's a lot...mainly Azula, the others are my other options. ;D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 10, 2008, 03:35:20 PM
So you try all ;) thats not a bad plan if one doesn't fit the other might :D anyways do you have any ideas what we should do next if they aren't holding the casting?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on May 10, 2008, 03:36:50 PM
I didn't know if either of you had contacted heery casting yet, but i'm sure tahnee503 has called but i went ahead and sent them an e-mail. I made it short and sweet, because I didn't want to sound like some un-professional kid with too many questions. I'll post it here, and if they respond back I'll post it here as soon as I get it.

 Heery Casting,
It is to my understanding that your agency has done alot of work for M Night Shyamalan. Will your casting agency be casting his next feature "The Last Airbender" as well? I would very grateful for a response.
                   Thank you,
                   my first name
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on May 10, 2008, 03:39:15 PM
Thats good. Thanks...good luck with a reply!

and thanks tahnee. :) Let's just hope they are still casting. :p
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 10, 2008, 03:44:40 PM
Yeah lets hope  :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on May 10, 2008, 03:46:59 PM
what we could also try is finding other kids on the web who got callbacks before (supposedly). Like there were some rumors Noah Hunt had a callback for Zuko maybe someone could ask him how it went. Just a suggestion.
Also I'm trying to get into this acting class that has some pretty good connections with kid work like on disney and stuff (alot of her kids work in disney) though that's not what I want to do, it could really help if casting calls do come up. So maybe some of you guys could try finding connections in your area as well. I tried to get an agent but they never contacted me back probably due to my lack of experience, hence the acting classes. If any new developments arise I'll let you guys know cuz you know the saying "Two heads work better than one."
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 10, 2008, 03:49:14 PM
I personally don't think we need an agent because what his or her job is to find the auditions but then its up to you so what do they have that we don't right now we are doing the agents job ;)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on May 10, 2008, 03:53:53 PM
yeah i agree but the reason i'm seeking an agent is because I want to act professionally meaning if avatar doesn't work out i will have info on other auditions as well. though i'm really hoping avatar works out.
You really don't have to have one but it would help... greatly.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 10, 2008, 03:57:58 PM
About the suggestion on finding the kids who got call backs it is a good idea but how are we supposed to find their numbers and how do we know they would tell us... maybe their agent told them to keep the castings secret :-\
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on May 10, 2008, 04:07:12 PM
that's where I'm drawing a blank. ;)
I was searching the net today just trying to find some kid bragging about a callback but no such luck. I know the hunt guy has a myspace and as we speak i'm sendin him a message askin about it but who knows if he will even answer. i don't really know what to do from here. I wanna say just wait but this whole thing might pass us by while we wait for news.
anyway who were u planning to audition for?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 10, 2008, 04:13:48 PM
Well I was mainly aiming for Katara (But I probably am not her twin anyways there is no harm in trying :( ) also if I had to do a character that only appeared in one eppie I could possibly look like Meng but I look more like On Ji who only has 3 lines thats why I honestly would prefer Meng... even if she is a weirdo ;D
and about the auditions passing us by thats one thing I am afraid too of because if we do wait for some news to appear I don't think I would be very happy for the headline to be This and that have been casted so that is a problem  ;)
thats why we need to do some serious thinking :-\
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 10, 2008, 04:19:02 PM
There is also another problem: Not everything on the web is true info so we can't exactly be sure unless if there is an agency or someone that we can call to check for ourselves  :(
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on May 10, 2008, 04:25:14 PM
i was planning on goin out for Katara as well. My only hang-up is that I may be too tall (5'10) but if they cast older then it may not be a problem. I don't really wanna be anyone else cuz i look alot like Katara and have all the right qualifications includin a little martial arts including lots of talent (not being cocky though). that's why i wanna audition so that if they don't pick me for katara they might just choose to put me as some new role that has a few lines or something.
I love to act sooo much and i love avatar so i would be grateful for any role i got. i'd be the perfect first film.
i know it sounds proposterous but a girl can dream can't she? ;D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 10, 2008, 04:27:01 PM
I don't think size would matter that much she is supposed to be taller than aang anyway and yeah we can still dream ;) how old are you?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on May 10, 2008, 04:28:50 PM
There is also another problem: Not everything on the web is true info so we can't exactly be sure unless if there is an agency or someone that we can call to check for ourselves  :(

You do have a point there. like how we thought we could trust imdb but look what happened with that. and that stupid creativeartist's agency e-mail stuff. so we gotta be careful with the internet as well.
I'm 15 going on 16 this month.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 10, 2008, 04:29:53 PM
So you could make a good Katara do you have blue eyes as well ?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on May 10, 2008, 04:54:45 PM
no but i've found blue is my color. ;) and i already wear contacts so that should be no problem at all.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 10, 2008, 04:58:26 PM
Good point wearing contacts is an option have you uploaded a pic of yourself somewhere on the forums?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on May 10, 2008, 05:05:02 PM
naw. i've learned my lesson about posting pictures of myself on forum sites. i prolly won't be doing that. put i do have a myspace.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 10, 2008, 05:05:53 PM
Could I see it? ;)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on May 10, 2008, 05:16:12 PM
yeah i'll pm u the url.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 10, 2008, 05:17:44 PM
Ok
anyway we should start thinking of an option to find the auditions :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on May 10, 2008, 05:45:13 PM
WOW...you've guys talked up a lot during my absence. lol. Anyways, thats really cool you two are going for katara and your absolutely right about contacts...I wear glasses and need to get some. I love the idea of looking for good classes with connections, but I live in the middle of nowhere right now and probably wont find much.  :( I wish you luck with it though, it's a very good idea...my option is most likely comunity theatre to build up a resume.

Happyelectron, I wouldn't worry too much on height...movie magic does wonders first of all, they made hugh jackman (pretty sure its his name) in Xmen look shorter than he was to portray Wolverine, and Tahnee is right about how it could work with the age difference with aang anyway.  Wishing you both luck. :D

Auditions are extremely hard to get info on w/o agents, and that may be a big problem here...but it is possible, just have to work harder....we probably first have to contact an agency or whoever is possibly in charge then work from there. I said earlier I'm googling like crazy, which has not really been successful...hmmmm....Well, we got the philly place and CAA...we should look for other possible agencies and try them.  :-\ 


Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 10, 2008, 05:47:01 PM
I am also googling like crazy lets keep each other updated ;)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on May 10, 2008, 05:48:03 PM
lol...okay. :D  I'm seriously not getting luck with it. lol.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 10, 2008, 05:49:45 PM
neither am I but as I can see we are both still searching anyways look at the positive side once we are done we will be googling experts lol
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on May 10, 2008, 05:54:13 PM
lol....yeah, i need the google skills.  :P
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 10, 2008, 05:55:11 PM
Gotta go I will talk to all of you soon ;)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on May 10, 2008, 05:57:21 PM
byes. :D

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on May 10, 2008, 06:00:18 PM
you know something tells me we won't get much luck with google till it's too late. I just don't think it'll show up randomly somewhere without it being on avatarspirit or this site first. but i think the agency thing is a good idea.
another fact though: A guy named doug aibel is credited on imdb with casting all of shyamalan's recent movies. so i guess he worked along with heery in finding all the ppl. my guess is he does most of the principal casting and heery does the extras and everything else.
I sent him my stuff a while back and never recieved any thing back. (this was back in like november) He doesn't really have an office but he is the head at a Theatre in New York called The Vineyard Theatre which is where he casts from.
Now back in December random ppl on imdb said they were auditioning in New York for this guy for the avatar movie. of all the ppl i spoke too none had gotten callbacks yet. I haven't spoken to them since and i forgot all about it until like just now.
the point is if this thing isn't already cast we might wanna add doug aibel to our list to look out for.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on May 10, 2008, 07:10:49 PM
Thats a good idea. If he's casted for MNight before it is pretty likely he could cast for this also. What's the theatre address or did you send your info to a different place he goes to? All in all, he should be added to the list.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 11, 2008, 04:41:48 AM
There is also a lady called Stephanie Holbrooks who has casted most of his films including his latest I asked my uncle to contact her on linkedin but so far no answer :-\
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on May 11, 2008, 08:43:01 AM
hmmmm...it's annoying how these people don't answer. :-\ Wish you get a respnse, I'm gonna try emailing the philly place later and see what happens...I'll do my phone calling when schools done with, which is in a few weeks so I can plan what I'm gonna say and a list of questions if I get a good respnse on Avatar...if they do have info, what do you guys think should be asked, other than if they are holding auditons/where are they holding them?  :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 11, 2008, 09:08:11 AM
First of all you have to ask whether they are holding them or not but besides that I think the only info we need is if we need to bring anything where and when are they... you know the basic stuff ;)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on May 11, 2008, 02:39:48 PM
Well I never really called Doug Aibel because each time I called it was after hours for their theatre. I did e-mail but never got a response (of course). So maybe I'll try and call again now that i've remembered it again. the website for the vineyard theatre can be found here: http://www.vineyardtheatre.org/1/index.htm (http://www.vineyardtheatre.org/1/index.htm). Doug Aibel is on the contact page. but if you look around the site, the theatre is pretty neat itself.

Edit: sorry he's on the staff page under "about us."
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on May 11, 2008, 02:45:52 PM
and i keep reading things like this: http://www.tv.com/users/carlonguiz/profile.php?action=show_blog&entry=m-100-25324301 (http://www.tv.com/users/carlonguiz/profile.php?action=show_blog&entry=m-100-25324301). It's just so unclear what's going on. but i really think this aibel guy might be the one.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on May 11, 2008, 03:22:55 PM
uh oh. guys just got some bad news. you know how i messaged noah hunt yesterday well he was kind enough to reply and he said that he had heard that they already have a full cast and are already filming. but also added that u never know what's true in this business, very sketchy.
so who knows what's going on with this thing. it could or could not be casting, could or could not be filming. Let's hope for our sake it hasn't even been cast yet. :)
but i'm definetly calling doug aibel since there really are ppl who auditioned for him last year. I think if we can get ahold of him we can get some answers.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 11, 2008, 03:25:47 PM
How are you sure that was Noah Hunt that answered? people play cruel jokes sometimes besides M. Night is supposed to start filming after the Happening... they are still writing the script ;) btw where did you get the email?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Dr Malcolm Crowe on May 11, 2008, 03:32:43 PM
Yeah, I believe filming isn't scheduled til March 2009. Noah is misinformed.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 11, 2008, 03:33:33 PM
Or he isn't Noah :o
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on May 11, 2008, 03:44:36 PM
well it was his myspace so i'm assuming it was him and it is very possible that he heard a rumor like we all have.

Yeah, I believe filming isn't scheduled til March 2009. Noah is misinformed.

originally is was reported by the Philidelphia Inquirer that it would film in mid-2008. but since the march thing was in Entertainment Weekly I think it is more accurate. Besides he can't do much filming while doing promotionals for The Happening. But I'm still lookin for info.

Who knows right? I'm thinking he's gonna take like 3 or 4 months for pre-production to build the sets, train the actors, set the production schedule and so on. So I think the casting in November and start of active pre-production in December could be what the case is. If not like really soon (during summer maybe). That is if it's really going to start filming in March. Which I hope it will.
tahnee what e-mail are u talking about?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 11, 2008, 04:29:36 PM
I meant where you got Noah Hunt's email :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on May 11, 2008, 04:57:40 PM
oh i don't have it. I messaged him on myspace.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 11, 2008, 04:58:44 PM
Ok ;) Anyways anyone been doing anything else?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on May 11, 2008, 05:55:42 PM
hmmm...I hope they'restill casting. No offense, i'm not sure if i would take the myspace thing to heart, seeing as a lot of people pose as other people (example being the Huvane Email address). If it was him, he was either misinformed like said or sadly is right. :(...I think happyelectrons senario sounds about right is it's march '09.

I haven't done anything new just yet. sorry. :-\
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 11, 2008, 05:59:36 PM
You don't need to apologize :D What I think we should do is call if you can find someone's number who is supposedly in on the casting because in emails they don't have to answer us but on the phone it would be way too impolite to hang up... what do you guys think?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on May 11, 2008, 07:10:59 PM
that sounds good. :) I got CAAs number, I think the philly number...what else?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on May 11, 2008, 07:17:39 PM
I think we should call the Vineyard Theatre casting number soon as possible also. Today being Sunday and I don't get home till 5 on weekdays I don't think I'll have the opportunity to call but nonetheless I will try.
Title: Re: Auditions

Good luck. :D

hey, i tried finding daibel on the contacts page...I can't. unless I''m doing something wrong. ???

edit: Nevermind i found it. ;p. I'll email him.


Edit again: I didn't send this yet, but how does this sound? Please tell me if things need to be changed to make it sound more professional. :)

Dear Mr. Daibel,

I am a 16 year old aspiring actress interested in The Last Airbender movie that M.Night Shyamalan is directing, and I was curious if you have information on the casting for the movie, or if you are helping with the casting of the movie. Please reply back, it'd be much appreciated.

Thank you for reading,

Aspiring Actress


Well?

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 13, 2008, 02:30:15 AM
I think it might need to sound a bit more professional I don't mean to criticize but it sounds a bit like your talking to a friend...
Maybe you could say

Dear Mr Aibel,
I have been hearing rumours that you are casting for the movie The Last Airbender which will be directed by M. Night Shyamalan.
Could you please confirm this if so I would very interested in participating.
Thankyou,
Your name here

Or something like that edit it your way... my personal opinion is that if you don't look professional they won't take you seriously and probably think it's a joke so just to be sure ;)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on May 13, 2008, 05:22:16 AM
Oh no, I'm not offended...thats why I didn't send it yet, I knew it needed work. :p

Thanks a bunch. ;D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 13, 2008, 08:47:34 AM
No problem let me know how it goes :D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on May 13, 2008, 05:39:09 PM
hey just a headsup I already e-mailed him and too many unsolicited e-mails might prompt him not to answer any of them. In mine I didn't mention I was an actress I just professionally asked if he would be casting or if he did cast Shymalan's next feature "The Last Airbender." Again for all our sakes don't everyone go and send him e-mails. Let's just keep it at me and Alana1991.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 13, 2008, 05:40:39 PM
Ok that's great ;D hopefully one of you guys get an answer let's keep our fingers crossed ;)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on May 30, 2008, 07:06:02 PM
New development...

So I just called Kevin Huvane's office in New York, I'll say word for word what was said:
"Kevin Huvane's office."
"Hi, I was wondering if Kevin Huvane was casting a Shyamalan* movie?"
"No, I'm sorry he's not."
"He's not?"
"No, he's not."
"Oh, ok thank you."

When he first said no he said it rather quickly so i asked him to make sure he said that he's not and he seemed definite in his answer.

I kinda knew he was going to say that but I think this proves that e-mail thing was fake and that Kevin Huvane is not casting the movie. I still think Doug Aibel has something to do with it but when I called his theatre they weren't there, hereby proving that his hours are crazy. But summer is coming up and soon as I get a chance I'll call during a better hour.

That's all I got for now.

*I can't remember if I said "Shyamalan" or "avatar", but either way it doesn't matter he should know.

Thanks for that. Yeah, that Huvane thing just made me mad...Anyways, I haven't had much luck with emails, but I'll be out of school in a week so I'm gonna try it again and start calling also. I admit I havent done anything for a bit only becuase I had a lot of schoolwork and exams stuff. '

Did he sound like he was lying because maybe he did not want you knowing because kevin huvane would have probably one two many phone calls if he said yes anyway ???
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on May 31, 2008, 01:12:53 PM
no. he has no reason to lie, if he was casting he would tell me to have my agent call up because any person has the chance of being the perfect person for the role they are looking for. It's really just not very professional to lie.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on May 31, 2008, 02:14:57 PM
Well i was just throwing in a possibility because when i called up paramount they asked me if i was the press and if you or i really was then even if someone revealed who was casting everyone would know and it would probably be a big mess so i just think lying is a possibility but anyways you do have a point though... did we run out of ideas or is their new news about casting ect.?

hey guys! I haven't been on here in a while. Thanks for all the great info. I know a lot of us want to audition, including myself, so I'm glad we're helping each other out. :) I'm starting to get worried because I just read a interview that implied that they have "found the next big superstars." I hope that doesn't mean they already have everyone casted. I'll try to get the link up here, or I think someone else already posted it. I'm so worried. I wanted to audition for eiter Katara or Toph. Or anyone really. I really wish they had open casting calls like they did for Harry Potter. At least give a whole bunch of unknown kids a chance, with or without agents. Well, good luck to everyone else hoping to audition. I hope we can find out some concrete audition information soon. It's making me crazy!  :P

I saw that too and I hope they are still auditioning I saw an interview that said that they were making the sets in August so maybe and hopefully there are still auditioning :-\ besides that does anyone know how they saw that many kids were the auditions mentioned in a NY magazine or newspaper that we didn't read since some of us don't live there???

Hellozombie, I agree, the open casting calls like they did for HP would make the most sense; it worked decently   with HP so far. Lets just keep praying people.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: tahnee503 on June 18, 2008, 07:56:59 AM
What I don't know is that how come that many kids have agents... you know maybe I'm wrong and lots do but would they really do private castings like that? I mean the creators of Avatar are involved and I think that if they would really want to do a great movie they would probably look everywhere right? So what now?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on June 18, 2008, 09:59:58 AM
I don't know, something doesn't sound right. It's possible maybe that that many kids do have agents, becuase the SAG has a numeruous amount of people, and there are many agents out there...on the other hand, it's still vague information. They could do private casting like that, but, like you, I would think they'd look everywhere like they did with HP. I know it isn't possible to go everywhere in the US and/or other countries in which they were looking into, but they could have gone to bigger cities in each region and held open casting. ???
Title: Re: Auditions

Ok, I've spoken to one of Heery Casting's head casting agents, and they said that casting has not begun and they don't know whether they will be doing the casting or not.

They are not allowed to give out too much information, according to one of the clerks, but they are almost positive that it won't be open calls. You must have an agent.

Post by: skander on June 18, 2008, 10:16:38 PM
I haven't spoke to Heery Casting yet, though I might - just to confirm the news on whether casting has or has not commenced. I did, however, contact Mike Lemon Casting; a company who has worked with M. Night Shyamalan a few times in the past. The Admin there stated that they did not have any information as of yet - which might be another good sign that casting has yet to begin.

I just wanted to add that I haven't directly heard from any people online on whether they auditioned for a role in Avatar, and usually you do when casting for a big feature has actually started.

So I wonder if M Night was being truthful when he said they've seen thousands of kids and he believes they've found the next superstars. Wierd thing to lie about if he was. I guess he wanted to spice up the presentation.

Did he say thousands? I don't remember him saying thousands but I definitely could be wrong, as I was just skimming the article. I don't even remember where I saw it...
It would be really cool if he did find the next superstars, and got really good actors, although I know it would be disappointing for the people who wanted to try out. I'm sure you're all great actors too! :)

yeah, good point. I mean seriously though, if Avatar is gonna be this epic film with "unknown" actors, at least hold open casting auditions to give many people a chance. If they want to make it EPIC and find the perfect people to portray our dear Avatar characters, then I don't understand why the casting process (as of now) seems so limiting. Like, Night says "They've auditioned thousands of kids." But I mean WHO kids? And WHERE? WHEN?? Seriously, what is going on?!  Like, hold open casting auditions and post announcements or give information regarding where auditions will be held. Be gracious to us please!! We're the die hard fans that want JUSTICE for the Avatar films for goodness sake! :P Why do they have to limit it to people with agents or keep it so darn secretive and vague. A lot of HP actors were discovered, and I don't think THEY had agents. Like Katie Leung, Emma Watson, Evanna Lynch, Rupert Grint, etc. I believe they all either went to open auditions or simply sent in videos of themselves.

Like Katie Leung, Emma Watson, Evanna Lynch, Rupert Grint, etc. I believe they all either went to open auditions or simply sent in videos of themselves.

I think almost all of the roles in Harry Potter were cast through open calls or discoveries at public locations. It sounds exaggerated for M. Night Shyamalan to say that they've seen "thousands" of kids with the casting process being so secretive and limiting. About 3000 girls auditioned for Cho Chang in HP, 15 000 for Luna Lovegood, Rupert Grint sent in a video audition, Daniel Radcliffe was discovered in a theatre where he had attended a play, and Emma Watson was discovered by casting agents who came to her school. In addition to the HP casting example, Dakota Blue Richards beat 10 000 girls for her role as Lyra Belacqua in "The Golden Compass" through open auditions around the UK. The key word here is "open". In order to get "thousands" of kids to auditions for such prominent roles, you need to send out an "open casting call". M. Night could have made that statement for publicity, but that's just a thought.

I also wanted to add that if Shyamalan is planning on casting a few Asian actors or actors with martial arts experience, open auditions are the way to go. Actors without martial arts experience are going to have to undergo several months of training. I do realize that there are stunt doubles, but it would be better for the actors to do their own stunts.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on June 20, 2008, 12:38:32 PM
I'm going to post this on the other auditions thread too, but i'll post here first.

I'm pretty sure was that they casted the main parts, and they will either have open auditions for the extras or closed auditions, which holds more people than you think. A lot of kids have agents. There's some people in your school who probably have agents that you never knew they did. I found three people this year. BTW, i wrote to Huvane again. Here's the bulk of the e-mail.

Mr. Huvane,

I realize I have e-mailed you once before, but most people I know were wondering about the Avatar: The Last Airbender trilogy. I also realize that you do not have much time, and it will probably take a while for you(or a rep.) to e-mail me back, but I need to ask you something.

I have been scourging the Internet for some time now, and feel that it is necessary to ask you this.
I do have an agent, and I have done some work(mostly around the neighborhood I live in though) and I was wondering if there are closed auditions that I could audition for without my agent contacting you. My contract ends with my agent in about three days, but I plan on getting a new one. Would that cause a problem if I did in chance get to audition?




Thats about it. I talked to my agent again today and I told her that if she did hear anything about an audition, to tell me. She said she would, and i promist he moment she does i'll tell everyone! ;D

I completely agree with every word you said. That's why i was blown away when shyamalan said that they've already seen thousands. I was sure if they had started atleast somebody would know about it. And yet nobody knows of anyone directly who auditioned. I can't wait to get some real answers.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on June 21, 2008, 01:54:58 PM
It could be true that he has seen thousands. More kids have agents than you know... but it is odd that no one came out and said anything unless there was a confidentiality agreement, which there probably wasn't. I guess all we can do is wait.

Yes you can. My agent is stationed in arizona, and i live like forever away from her. I do talk to her on the phone and e-mail and textm keeping eachother updated. She did recommend a manager in my area, so if you do find an agent that you like in another state, talk to them about someone local. ;D

Title: Re: Auditions

Yeah you just gotta make sure you'll be able to go to auditions that they think will be good for you. A good agent is always looking for work for you and if you can never go to auditions they will drop you pretty quick because they need to make money too and if you're not working they get nothing. They can be pretty understanding though but getting an agent is a serious commitment. If you do research on the net you can find all the facts about it and make sure it's something you want to do. Good luck though.

Yep, it shouldn't cost you anything to have an agent. If an agency asks you for money up front, it's not legit. I also wanted to add that an agency may not want to take you up as their client if you don't have any training and/or acting experience. It's not the agent who decides whether or not you get into an audition, but rather the casting director. The agent submits you for potential roles, the casting director looks at your headshot and resume, and then he, she, or they decide whether they want you to audition for them.

If you don't have an agent, and you decide to send your headshot, resume, and audition tape directly to the casting agency, your package may just end up in the garbage - that's if they are specifically looking for actors with agents. (In other words, it's not an open casting call).

I'm still looking for an agent. One of my problems is there are no franchised agents in my state, so I have to find one out of my state (hopefully it will work out). My main problem would be my resume. It sort of stinks. I really need to build it up big time. The only good thing I could have on there is if I can land a role in a few upcoming plays in my area. :-\ Other than that I just have Middle school drama and two years of high school Drama (I had to quit  :(). Pretty Pathetic resume. :-[


I need a headshot too, hopefully searching for a photographer won't be an issue. My best friend is in photography..she has the equipment and is pretty talented with it, but I'm not sure if I should bug her with it. I'm probably better off finding one. ???

On second thought, there probably isn't. If there was someone in the forums of Avatar Spirit that knew such thing, they probably would've told the site about it. But no posts on the site inform people about the casting calls. Ahhh! Just something needs to be sent out about these auditions!

i'm on ASN all day, so i'll tell you anything when I hear it.

I'm fine Alana. I just had to get an [gross]ingrown tonail[/gross] removed and they had to put novacaine in it so i wouldn't cry like a baby. It's all bandaged up though.

BTW, there is an edit button so you don't have to post more than once. Sry for armchair modding, but you might get a reprimanding if a mod sees it.

You're probably right, but it is still an option. Heery Casting is still an option too. I've e-mailed them, and like the other letter, no reply. :(

Oh and remember, on that page there's the phone and fax number of Creative Artists Agency too, so if you want to consider that option...

You have to call them. They rarely (or never) respond to e-mails.

I spoke with Noah Hunt, and he said he auditioned for the film "a long time ago"... :-\
He didn't give me any casting information, like who to contact, although I stated that I needed to know in the message. He said all he knew was that he didn't land the role.

Since he tried out quite some time ago, casting might be complete for all we know. It typically takes a few months, maybe 3-5 for a film like this. Keep in mind that Shyamalan keeps his projects pretty quite, so that may be a reason as to why we haven't heard anything. It's not impossible to replace actors that have already been cast or who are in the negotiation stage, though. It happened to someone I know, and not just for any film...it was big.

** Noah Hunt was rumored to have booked the part of ZUKO.

Did anyone here keep up with "The Happening" auditions? I didn't really, but I remember seeing open calls for extras on Heery Casting and an open call for a body double on another site. I think Shyamlan almost always casts the major roles through closed auditions. Pretty lame...

wow  :o

that guy does look kinda like aang, if he shaved his head. oh, by the way, my mom got some info on the movie itself. she says that it would be a 5 year contract for the people who get the main parts (sokka katara, aang, zuko etc) due to the whole 3 movie thing. and that they plan to start in january 09, this means that casting calls/ auditions HAVE to be happening sometime in the near future for roles to be finalized in time. i sent in a application for an agent close to me in Philly, hopefully that will possibly give me some info that i can relay to you guys.

Well I have to say if that's Aang than I'm not pleased. There's just something about him that seems so unlike Aang. I dunno what do you guys think. Oh and Skander, if you don't mind me asking, how did you get a hold of Noah Hunt. Was that all he said about the auditions? One more thing: It seems a bit early for the official casting. I mean, the film is being released on July 2, 2010.

One more thing. I had an idea that maybe we should "audition" on You Tube. Maybe somebody will see our videos and recognize us. Just an idea.  :-\
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on June 26, 2008, 01:27:04 PM
By the way, at Heery Casting they released something that said they were auditioning for extras in August 2007 for The Happening. Now, that's ten months before the release of The Happening. Before August 2007, they probably had the main characters already cast. Now the happening came out in June and the last airbender is coming out in July of 2010. 10 months before that date is September 2009. So, that being said, casting for the main characters of the last airbender will be done sometime before Sep. 2009, when they will most likely get extras for the movie. Filming is set to begin sometime in early 2009, so my guess is that if they're still casting for the last airbender, then it will happen sometime later this year, like November or December. Very confusing I know, but this is my guess.

I contacted him awhile back and he said the same thing. But he auditioned back in say November of last year. It's weird that it's not casted yet. But maybe they will hold more since we've heard nothing about who will be playing the main characters. And thank you guys for all the info you've collected about it. I think it's cool that we're all helping each other out now. Did anybody manage to call Doug Aibel casting?

i think that first kid looks goodish for aang, not really the second one. and that sokka guy? im not impressed. not cuz i want sokka or anything, but at least sokka, katara, bato, and sokka/ katara's dad should be somewhat darker skinned. maybe somebody black, or possibly native american-ish, possibly even hispanic. but not Ether brent guy. he does kinda look like sokka though if you ask me.

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: skander on June 26, 2008, 03:26:18 PM
I thought I would share this bit of information from the Heery Casting website:

From their FAQ's page:

How can I be represented by Heery Casting?
Heery Casting is NOT an agency, therefore, we do not represent actors. A casting director?s job is to represent the production company, helping them find the right talent for their job.

To be considered for auditions at Heery Casting, an actor?s work must be known to us; either from stage or film performances or through our open call process. Please DO NOT mail in pictures unless we specifically request them. Also please DO NOT E-MAIL pictures!

How can I be seen for auditions?

Once your work is known to us, if the right role for you presents itself, you?ll be called in to audition for that role. Stay in touch with your agent for ?updates? on work opportunities.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: riz_fo_shiz on June 26, 2008, 03:27:25 PM
What open audition?



its not for avatar, its more like an evaluation for people who are members of the Mike Lemon Casting Co. pretty  much, its so they can see how good you are, and what roles you can be fit to play, all the way from lead in a movie, to an extra in a commercial. if i do good, i could MAYBE get into avatar, or another movie. you shouldn't really worry about it unless you live in PA or close enough to Philadelphia to make it to the HQ


skander: yeah, we need 2 seperate pro headshots and a well put together resume. thank god my cuz is a pro photographer! he's coming on monday to get me set up with some good shots. if you can't get a pro one, they said you can use a good school pic, or close up of you. i live in Harleysville, pretty much a nowhere town

More important info I found on Heery:

OPEN CALL INFO:

The open call is a general audition for consideration for principal work.

We do NOT see children under age 18 at the open call. Children are only seen through an appointment made by an agent or Manager. Also, adult actors with professional representation may also be seen by a private appointment time made by their respective agent or manager.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: riz_fo_shiz on June 26, 2008, 03:37:19 PM

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on June 26, 2008, 06:29:27 PM
And now I reveal to you the best information on the auditions ever...

I found this on the forums at Avatar Spirit:





creativeartistagency said:
For all you eager Avatar fans, vital casting news has already been published for its Movie adaptation for 2010. Audtions MUST be sent to Kevin Huvane of Creative Artists Agency via e-mail. This is the e-mail for enquires: creativeartistagency@hotmail.com All actors of all ethnicities and backgrounds including prospective international actors/actresses are invited to participate. There are NO Open Casting Calls! Spread the Good News around.

I looked up the agency online and it?s a well known, legitimate casting agency company. I looked it up on IMDbPro.com and the man mentioned above is listed as a partner of the agency. I called the agency and they confirmed that they were not casting for the movie but that Kevin Huvane was a partner. I emailed the email address given above and I got an automated response back. Here?s what I received.

Dear prospective actor/actress,

Thanks for your interest in the Avatar: The Last Airbender auditions.
There is only one method of auditioning ? sending resumes (and preferably video footage audtion) via e-mail.
If you choose to send your resume you will be notified of the decision and an invitation to attend the closed casting calls later in November. All U.S citizens as well as International prospectives are invited to participate.

Only e-mails with the subject line Resume in verbatim will be open, checked, and replied.

Thanks for your interest.

Regards,

Kevin Huvane
Talent Agent
Creative Artists Agency

That means that if you don?t have a professional resume of acting experience, you better start building one. Don?t call the agency because it seems that they are not the ones doing the casting but Kevin Huvane, a partner of the company, is. NO open casting calls if you didn?t read it at the top. Seems you have time before November. Good luck to everyone if this is the real deal, and I think it definitely is!


I could just cry, this is spectacular news!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

I should get some info on Mike Lemon too. I Don't really live near Philly or the state of PA in general...but close enough I guess...It sucks that we need agents. There are no franchised agents in my state at all. I have to find one out of state (I said this already but still. :-\)

I really need to land a role in this next play in my area to help out my resume. :-[

Post by: skander on June 26, 2008, 07:15:21 PM
And now I reveal to you the best information on the auditions ever ... creativeartistsagency@hotmail.com

There has been some talk about that e-mail being a fake. Some people have claimed that they called CAA to find that the agency and Kevin Huvane are not involved with the Avatar project. Others have complained that the e-mail does not exist, and another individual - who was somehow able to submit his resume - shared with us that the user behind that e-mail asked for 3 shirtless shots.  :-\
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on June 26, 2008, 07:22:24 PM
Hmm... Lets keep our fingers crossed that it isn't fake and that there really is something going on in November. Maybe we should contact the agency. By the way, Mike Lemon e-mailed me back. He said that there wasn't really any info on the auditions. He said "keep your eye on the trades. -Hollywood Reporter...". He also couldn't put me in contact with M. Night Shyamalan.

well, i think you can just make one in word or works or any word processor, just as long as it has the applications to make it look professional. you should try googling different formats for resumes and pick the one you like best ^^ my mom says that as long as it looks nice, it doesnt matter what you make it on.

the only thing im skeptical of, is the email address. i mean, if its a pro casting company, wouldnt they have their own address? like:

mrperson@creativeartistagencies.com

or something like that? but hotmail.com? that seems like a kid made it and is trying to lie, but the thing about that, why would one person go through so much trouble, just to stop other people from auditioning? how far would they think it could get? how many people would see? im still a little skeptical... but hopeful at the same time.

Thanks, shadowbender...Skander is sort of right about the email, sorry to burst your bubble on that...I also emailed huvane a while back and never recieved a response about the catsing. It's awesome that Mike Lemon actually responded to you, though...I'm gonna try contacting him either tonight or tommorow to see if auditons have started.


Riz, I had similar thought about that. Bottom line, that person (if it's a scam) is a bigtime jerk that needs a new hobby. :P Why people do this stuff, I don't know, it's not nice to make fun of us actors like that.-_-
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on June 26, 2008, 07:57:59 PM
Totally agree. And I'm also gonna contact Kevin Huvane. I need to see if the news is real or not. What do you plan on saying to Mike Lemon?

Riz:
I've seen some legitmate agencies use "@gmail.com" or "@aol.com" for resume submissions.

To answer your questions about "why someone would go through so much trouble to create this casting notice/e-mail account," is so that that individual could ask for shirtless shots of young and aspiring actors, looking for their big break. Pathetic and sick, but it happens.
Title: Re: Auditions

Yeah...it is. But hey, although this may be a scam, November for casting calls do sound right.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on June 26, 2008, 08:16:55 PM
Hey, it does seem though that BuddyTV (which is where the girl on Avatar Spirit supposedly got this info from) gives a lot of casting info on The Last Airbender. So maybe, just maybe, she's telling the truth. Although right now I'm still becoming a bit skeptic.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: riz_fo_shiz on June 26, 2008, 08:19:23 PM
i want the information to be true, i really do, but if it is false, that puts us almost back to square one. make you resumes and headshots, and prepare just in case, and if it ends up being fake, then at least ur ready when the real one comes along.

I'm almost totally sure that that e-mail was a fake, and that you shouldn't e-mail it. I know we're back to square one, but you have to keep hoping.

BTW, Huvane and CAA doesn't take unsolicited requests, so your resume and headshot would most likely be thrown into the garbage. try for some agencies a little smaller. Trust me.  :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on June 26, 2008, 09:03:50 PM
yeah the e-mail is a fake. Don't e-mail anything there.
i called Kevin Huvane's office a while back and his secretary told me he wasn't casting this movie. It's in this thread a couple pages back. Make of it what you will but i don't think Kevin Huvane is casting the movie. If you look at his casting credentials anyway on imdb.com he really has only casted one movie and it wasn't of Shyamalan's. I think Doug Aibel has more to do with it. I think I'll call his theatre tomorrow and see what response I get. Good luck though. And again don't e-mail that hotmail account. It's definitely a fake.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on June 26, 2008, 09:06:57 PM
agreed. Good luck with your call!

....

I didn't email MLC yet, but that open call that was discussed a few pages back...does that require an agent? I don't know if I could go or not, but I read the info and it said teens have specific open calls if under 18, so...
Title: Re: Auditions

OMG!!!
I just called Doug Aibel's theatre and asked if they would be casting a Shyamalan movie coming up and they said not until the fall.
So that means Doug Aibel is casting it.
Great news!!!
And we have time as well. this is excellent!!
Title: Re: Auditions

for the MLC, the open call, is like an evaluation of your abilities. for this, they pretty much just look at what you can do, then put you into a group of other people, like extras, leads, etc, then they give you some things that you could then audition for based on your skills in acting. that's all it is, oh, and its at the MLC HQ in Philadelphia on JULY 16

OH, and i just checked the Heery Casting, they are having a similar thing, except its more or less of a workshop. the only issue is, its $325 and only 10 kids are accepted. its first come, first serve too.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on June 27, 2008, 12:44:05 PM
I should have asked if it was an open call or not. Oh well. We have time to find out. But I'm pretty sure we'll need an agent anyways.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: riz_fo_shiz on June 27, 2008, 12:52:16 PM
probably, im working on getting one. im going to that MLC thing on the 16th, and hopefully if i can the Heery workshop on the 18th and 19th
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on June 27, 2008, 01:02:23 PM
This sounds like great news guys! I know we've come to a conclusion that the old e-mail I sent out was fake, but read in another forum that another person practically got the same reply from "Kevin Huvane". What would be weird is if this was the same person that sent out the thing on ASN. Well, I think we should find out more on Aibel, how to send in the resumes and stuff like that. It sounds like exciting things are happening in the fall!
Title: Re: Auditions

Ahhh! That's awesome. At least now we know for certain that it's in the fall. Does Aibel work with an agency, (if so which one), or is he an independent CD? Did you by any chance ask if he was casting principal roles or extras?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on June 27, 2008, 01:15:31 PM
So lets think-

Doug Aibel is doing the auditions.

We have to build up resume.

Might need to get an agent.

Auditions happening in the fall.



Sorry, just a note to self! ;)
Title: Re: Auditions

Just a random question: What roles do you guys want?

Yue. Here's a sigg that someone made me on ASN.

(http://i181.photobucket.com/albums/x196/Hannahcatlover55/My%20Graphics/sigforiamkatara1.jpg)

What do you think? I was origionally going to go for Katara, but i thought this would be my best bet. ;D

oh and please don't double post. you could get into a lot of trouble with the mods if you do. there's a modify button on the top of your post.(sorry for the armchair modding)
Title: Re: Auditions

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on June 27, 2008, 01:27:23 PM
Yeah it's me. and luckily i have an agent(soon to be reinstated. my contract ended. lol. Do you think i'd have a chance?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on June 27, 2008, 01:30:20 PM
Well wouldn't previously having an agent go on your resume? I think so, even if your contract has ended. Therefore, I think you do have a chance.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on June 27, 2008, 01:31:34 PM
*squees* i'm acutally kind of excited. I'm thinking of calling their casting department and asking them about being accepted. hmmmmm
Title: Re: Auditions

Yeah, go for it! Do whatever you have to do to just find these auditions. As for me, I just need find the casting calls for Zuko.

No i forgot to ask. I was just really expecting him to tell me that he didn't know yet or some other gobbledegook. But i'll call back. Or maybe one of you guys could call and ask. Just check out this thread a couple pages back. I posted the Vineyard Theatre webiste and it has the phone number on it.
Oh and I think he's independent.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on June 27, 2008, 01:47:04 PM
I'll call him back, and ask the neccessary questions. One question though, how did you call him? Oh, and if you guys need any info on the movie, click on the link here:

Iamkatara, you really would be a good Yue, I can see resemblence. :D


Shadowbender, you're going for Zuko? I was planning to go for Azula. lol:D (I have two other roles as back up though if they already have an Azula) Good luck with your call by the way, and thsnks for the link!

should i try calling, or would that be too many people?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on June 27, 2008, 02:31:29 PM
Just like iamkatara, do whatever you must do. And good luck to you too! :D

p.s. They shouldn't have casted Azula yet, being that she isn't in Book one and that's what the first film is based on. So yeah, good luck again.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on June 27, 2008, 03:07:05 PM

Well, we never know who they casted yet...she appeard at the end of book 1 briefly I think.

Darn it. I waited to long. I tried to call back but they had already left for the day. I'll try calling back Monday and seeing what else I can find out.

And Alana1991, thanks. ;D

I had a huge hunch Doug Aibel had something to do with this, just took me forever to call.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on June 27, 2008, 03:35:57 PM
Wait, so we have to wait for monday then? Well, you tried.

i'll try then too I guess :p


Gut feelings are usually right, so maybe he is....it's really great you actually recieved that much info.:)

oh, and no problem.  8)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: skander on June 27, 2008, 03:57:12 PM
According to that Wikipedia link, filming starts February 2009. *I know anyone can alter the info provided by Wiki* That's really soon. By fall, it will only be a couple months until filming starts because the casting process itself takes a couple months. It doesn't sound right for the casting and filming dates to be so close.  :-\

Edit: But this link claims that filming starts May 2009.

i'm guessing they will be done casting by december that gives them 2 months for preperation before filming...

thats enough isn't it ???
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: AangLegend on June 27, 2008, 05:08:57 PM
one more thing if Kevin Huvane isnt casting avatar than that means that aang and sokka havent been taken yet..

because Kevin Huvane said they were casted already...
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on June 27, 2008, 05:17:03 PM
Alright, well first, on another wikipedia page it says as well that filming would begin in May 2009. Sorry, forgot to tell you guys that. Oh, and AangLegend, you're probably right. I just don't see how the main characters are already cast. It's a 2010 movie. Oh, and a note on production: The sets for the film are to begin being made this August.
Title: Re: Auditions

Questions to ask Doug Aibel - (On Monday, if anyone gets around to it).

-
-

Is Doug Aibel involved in the casting of M. Night Shyamalan's upcoming film, "The Last Airbender"?
Yes

When will casting begin?
Fall - (exact month unknown)

Is the fall casting for principal roles?

Is it an open call?

How can one obtain more information with regards to auditions as the time for the casting process nears?

i have the vineyard theatre's number programmed into my phone.

another thing to ask

If it is not an open call, if we have an agent but are unable to contact them, may will still audition?

and

if there are characters already cast, what characters are open for auditions?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on June 27, 2008, 07:27:37 PM
yeah, that might help also.

so, how many people are planning to call?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on June 27, 2008, 07:31:12 PM
I definitely will. I'm not sure about anyone else. lol

i'm going to call tomorrow and if not i'll call on monday.

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: riz_fo_shiz on June 27, 2008, 11:26:39 PM
wow... 3 pages in my absence  :D

iamkatara:

i think you should go for Yue over katara. you look like her more. good luck though ^^ and having an agent will help a lot too.

shadowbender:

it might be hard to get zuko, i think a LOT  of guys will try out for him. again, good luck though. if you really want it, you can get it ^^

alana1991:

i don't think they would cast azula at the same time as the other characters and roles in book one, maybe after some progress is made on the first movie. but keep lookin out though. its good you have backups, just wondering, who are they?

as for me, i want to go out for Sokka. *pokes siggie and pic* i dont know if i look a lot like him, but my friends who watch avatar say i act like him, even when im not "acting". i haven't seen anyone here who says they want aang or toph yet  :D both are major parts so they're still good to try out for, i couldn't handle aang though... probably too much pressure for me... i also don't look the part... if you know what i mean ;D

i can try to call somebody tomorrow and get some additional info on anything i can.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on June 28, 2008, 08:12:48 AM
Theres this girl that came a while back who looked exactly like Toph...I think she's on the ASN forums (I skim on the forums sometimes:p). I really think she should go for Toph if auditiions happen. I also think there's a kid here that wants to be Aang, but hasn't been on in a while.  :-\

Riz, my backups were either TyLee or Suki...Suki wouldn't be bad, but I have this hunch that out of the two Tylee might be better. So, if they aren't casting them yet, it may just give me some more time to find an agent, get decent headshots and build up my resume.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on June 28, 2008, 01:04:38 PM
Looks like we're gonna have to wait till Monday. I just called and they were'nt there. They keep crazy hours.

But in the mean time i would find out ways to take some classes and gain some experience. No better time than the summer to do things like that.
Title: Re: Auditions

Yep, summer plays here I come!  :) Getting the role of Zuko would be a dream come true for me, so I really need to work at this. I really think that if we try hard than we may be seeing each other on the set. I mean, don't we have just as much a chance as any one else?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on June 28, 2008, 03:19:09 PM
I wish all you great luck. That'd be awesome if we did, shadowbender. :D I was looking for acting classes in my area, unfortunately, none. BUT, I did find a modeling agency very close by..I didn't know there was one around where I live, probably because I have the navigation skills of a dodo and often forget little things. :p Maybe this will help me as far as agents go.
Title: Re: Auditions

wow really??? both are really physically intense roles, suki with the martial arts, tylee with all the filppy stuff... im amazed that you even are considering doing stuff like that! thats awesome!
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on June 28, 2008, 07:39:50 PM
Thanks. :)

My only issue with Tylee would be that I'm not as flexible as she is (I used to be able to do some of her stuff, but that was before I broke my shoulder badly. :-\); I'm pretty much considering her becuase I heard I could portray her pretty well. I'm also thinking (maybe) Suki becuase I just don't think she'd be a bad role, and according to my Dad and sister I could probably slide. I'm conidering Azula mostly becuase I LOVE playing villains, and apparently I can be pretty aggressive. :P

As for the martial arts; I've ALWAYS wanted to learn it, but unfortunately couldn't... :-[...your're probably wondering why I'm even bothering with these characters.lol.
Title: Re: Auditions

Check this out. In case you haven't seen this.

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on June 29, 2008, 12:52:58 PM
Well, Shyamalan previewed The Last Airbender by just showing some early storyboards and explaining what the movie is about and how they're gonna make it and how they feel about the movie. Fortunately, they didn't "preview" it like at a movie theatre where they show a trailer.

Oh, and Alana1991, the martial art is Northern Style. I took a special type of that called Praying Mantis style. Northern Style goes for all firebending, so you might want to look into it if you still want to go for Azula.  ;)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on June 29, 2008, 01:35:51 PM
Thanks for the article Happyelectrons, thats really cool! :D

Northern Style? Awesome, I'll try looking into that. Thanks. :D

Isn't Praying Mantis Style what Toph does?


....

DARN! They don't have a Martial arts studio offering Northern Style...they have a sudio that offers Korean Martial arts...Meh, I guess it's better than nothing.  ??? I don't really know if my parents will let me do this or not.

I took martial arts for a couple of years, I got to my brown stripe black belt, but then stopped for while cuz of exams.

my mom got these free lessons coupons, but they were only good for four lessons. but i SHOULD start taking them again. it is good excercise, and it would help a lot for understanding the different bending styles and techniques, at least a little bit, though i wouldn't use it much since im going for sokka, i need sword fighting, and knowledge of weapons

X-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------X

i researched a bit, and i found this for anyone interested-

Fire Bending- based on ancient Norther Xaolin *check for spelling* style kung fu. Strength type of kung fu that uses mostly powerful arm and leg movements

Water Bending- based on Tai Chi. not as much about strength, as it is about fluency, alignment, breath, and visualization. like water.

Air Bending- based on Ba Gwa style or "circle walking". Users of this style are known for always moving and constatly moving in circles. very evasive technique.

Earth Bending- based on Hun Gar *check for spelling* style. always rooted to the ground and using strong stances. Hun Gar is based on the movements of animals, such as the tiger (the harder punching and kicking in earth bending) or the crane (the more slow, flowing, stances and movements of earth bending.)

 :D Well, Martial arts wouldn't be bad to know for Sokka either. It could help with the sword fighting.
I was actually looking into Tae Kwan Do, since there's a few studios where I live that offer it...the other one is Karate. What do you guys think would be the most useful? I'm thinking maybe Tae Kwan Do, but I'd like to hear other opinions.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: riz_fo_shiz on June 29, 2008, 05:35:48 PM
i edited my post to show some of the bending history, i actually live less than 1/2 a mile from a tae kwan do studio and also really close to a karate place, same for jujitsu *spelling* i have a lot of options, the only problem is fitting it into my busy schedule, ill find a way though.

alana1991: i have no idea which is best. if you want azula, or tylee, (both fire nation) you should go for the korean style studio then at least you know somewhat about what fire bending is all about. i wouldn't mind learning some tai chi so i could "water bend" whenever i wanted too  ;D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on June 29, 2008, 05:44:26 PM
Ok, thanks. I also read up not too long ago that Tae Kwan Do sometimes incorporates pressure points (would be good for TyLee), but I think that depends on the teacher. It'd be cool to know too, it's a little more aggresive I think, doing techniques involving more with the legs than the arms...plus, I might get to break things (YAY!)lol.
(i know breaking things is in karate too though. :p)

those are all neat styles. Thanks for researching. :)

Post by: happyelectrons on June 29, 2008, 06:19:11 PM
Alana1991 I think you should take the one that you'd still be interested in continuing if you don't get the part. Not sayng you won't at all. But thinking practically I thing you should just do the one that seems the funnest bacause I think any of them would help for the role.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on June 29, 2008, 07:10:56 PM
Ok, I think Tae Kwan Do sounds the most fun, so... ;D

thanks.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: riz_fo_shiz on June 29, 2008, 10:23:20 PM
good point. they would probably be more inclined to cast somebody with some martial arts experience so that they don't have to start from scratch in teaching them the bending tecniques. im gonna start tae kwan do too, but i decided this before i even heard of the avatar movie :D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on June 29, 2008, 11:32:57 PM
It's actually a good thing for me that I learned some kung fu. But I recently quit, being that the school got new students like every week, making it more crowded and hard for teachers to teach me. Another good thing is that I actually self taught myself the way of the sword. This would be good for the Blue Spirit part of Zuko.  :D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on June 30, 2008, 05:45:01 AM
 :o

It's like your meant to play him!lol. ;D

That's good, Riz_fo_shiz; I think it'd just be cool in general to know a martial art. It's proabably one of coolest things to know IMO, and it just looks like  it'd be really fun...I've just always wanted to learn some sort of martial art, ever since I was like 4 or 5. I just need to find a studio close by that my parents will let me go to. 
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: elemental-x on June 30, 2008, 07:03:15 AM
Yeah its really cool to know some kind of martial art.
I think it might not matter which you learn, in terms of helping with a role,
I would think that learning any martial art might help you understand and do moves easier.
And I also agree to do the one that you think you'll enjoy the most.
Enjoying means your hearts in it [slightly cheesy]  ;D. 
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on June 30, 2008, 11:09:58 AM
Well hey, you are right! If your heart is close to that spiritualality of martial arts, than do it. Hey, it might sound cheesy but it is true.   ;)

Post by: vamptasticavatar on June 30, 2008, 03:39:16 PM
I just called Doug and he said that casting was taking place in the fall but he didn't know where yet and they wont know until around September.
they haven't started casting yet so all those rumors about possible roles I don't think are true.
He said if we have anymore questions then we should contact Paramount.
I took me so long to find all this :)
Actually though, before I called him I called Paramount because on the IMDBpro page it said they were the company to contact and they said Heery Casting was also casting but I called them and they said they were not doing anything with it at the moment.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on June 30, 2008, 04:13:57 PM
Thank you so much for that information! That was helpful and relieving. I was afraid any day now they would announce the cast. This is great info! Thanks again!
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on June 30, 2008, 04:21:20 PM
 :D :D :D. This is a really good relief!!!



So wait a minute, does that mean that Noah Hunt and all the other actors were lying about auditioning?  ???
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on June 30, 2008, 04:38:28 PM
I know! I found that out and I was like phew!
I'm calling Paramount back tomorrow to see if they know anything about the location
the lady there today wasn't very nice :\
I don't know, maybe they got wrong information
but this is like legit
I called Paramount (the lady even said it was Paramount and IMDBpro said they were the company) and she said that they were the ones doing the casting
I think Heely (i forgot if that is how its spelled) is doing casting for extras though
the woman at paramount asked me if i wanted to audition for a lead or for a extra and there website seems to be one that gets people to be in movies as extras
but yeah, if someone else would like to call paramount the number is 610-251-9200
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on June 30, 2008, 04:40:15 PM
sorry for the typos and grammar errors in that
I was trying to post it fast :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: skander on June 30, 2008, 04:56:02 PM
vamptasticavatar, when the lady at Paramount asked if you wanted to audition for a lead role or extra, what was her response to your answer? (Assuming you said lead)  :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on June 30, 2008, 05:05:01 PM
Vamppasticavatar, welcome and thank you! :D

Geesh, I didn't even get a chance to call Doug Aibel.  :-[ Well, thanks for the number for Paramount...what should be asked?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on June 30, 2008, 05:16:34 PM
I just asked her who were the people I could call for casting any of the roles
I wasn't exactly thinking all that clearly just because I was surprised I had even gotten this far :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on June 30, 2008, 05:59:41 PM
That sounds like a good set of questions, Skander. I'll try tommorrow or sometime this week. I'm sort of busy so I can't promise; but I'll try.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on June 30, 2008, 06:14:27 PM
I just tried calling paramount again but it went to the message machine
they are probably gone for tonight so I can try again tomorrow :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on June 30, 2008, 06:18:56 PM
Alright. I think I'll try to. Oh, and one more question for Paramount: Where are auditions exactly? This would be good to know too.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on June 30, 2008, 06:21:02 PM
I was going to ask that as well :D
I have a feeling they will be in NYC because thats where Doug is but who knows
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on June 30, 2008, 06:29:41 PM
Yeah...and they should have it in other cities as well. :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on June 30, 2008, 08:42:20 PM
They should, I agree. :D...I think NYC or LA would make the most sense, but lets hope they DO go to other cities.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on June 30, 2008, 08:58:03 PM
either that or they make it so you can send in a video
I just really want to audition  :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on June 30, 2008, 09:18:38 PM
Yeah...one of main goals right now. I'm just sooooo glad that we now have all of this info. Now I feel a lot more hopeful. :D

I'm just kind of angry at all these people that lied to the public about these auditions. I mean, they lied to everyone that they had auditioned a long time ago. Ah well, we have the info. Again, this is fantastic! ;D

Oh, and one more thing: The casting director might ask you this: How do you define your character? If he did ask such a thing, what would you guys say back to him. Just curious. It would be an important question.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: skander on June 30, 2008, 09:41:55 PM
We've made so much progress on this forum  ;D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 01, 2008, 10:38:20 AM
Ok, so I called Paramount and they know basically nothing (but the lady was really nice today so if you guys want to call to try to ask other questions then I would do it today :D)
But she said Doug is the casting director and he is the one to contact for most of the questions
so yes
I was kind of flustered when I talked to him yesterday because he answered on the first ring and I didnt even think I was getting anywhere with this so I didnt really know what to say
So I can try calling him again but if anyone else wants to so I dont have to keep him on the phone asking him questions for 5 minutes that would be great :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: elemental-x on July 01, 2008, 11:40:28 AM
Oh my gosh! So much information since yesterday ;D wow!
This is really good,
well time to ring and ask questions!  :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: skander on July 01, 2008, 11:45:33 AM
Okay, since Paramount can't provide much info, we'll go back to...
Questions to ask Doug Aibel

Is Doug Aibel involved in the casting of M. Night Shyamalan's upcoming film, "The Last Airbender"?
Yes

When will casting begin?
Fall - (exact month unknown, more information to come in September)

Have any roles been cast?
Casting has not started

Is the fall casting for principal roles?
If casting has yet to begin, then we can assume the answer is "yes"

How can one obtain more information with regards to auditions as the time for the casting process nears?
Contact Paramount or Heery Casting
(Maybe ask this question again? If you get the same answer, make a statement similar to the one below)

Paramount and Heery couldn't provide much info, so they advised me to contact you about casting.

Will it be an open call?

Where will the auditions take place?

For those out of the in-person audition range, which address do they send their resume/headshot/audition footage to?

If sides (from Avatar) are required, where can one get a hold of them?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 01, 2008, 12:05:41 PM
Wow...good info. :D This thread has definitely came a long way. So, now we call Aibel?  what time does his office close today/weekdays?

Okay, thanks Skander. So, who wants to call him. Vamptasticavatar, you've already called him, so should I call him or does somebody else want to?



Oh, and by the way, tomorrow is exactly two years until the last airbender comes out. TWO YEARS. One of us could be on that big screen in TWO YEARS. (or all of us, that would be awesome. ;))

Thanks for the Schedule, Skander. :D I'll try calling this week, or email him again if I can't call (I have a lot going on this week, so emailing might be easier). 

Two years? really? Wow.  :o lets hope at least one of us (all of us would be awesome, shadowbender :P) is. Either way, this is pretty exciting.  ;D

It's better to call Doug. If you e-mail him, he likely won't respond. I already tried.

Oh, Alana1991, you think Tokka will happen? Hmm, right now I don't know what to think. I know there's a bit of an age difference, but do you think something like Tuko could happen? :-\
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 03, 2008, 10:46:24 AM
He might be on vacation.  ;)

Yeah, I do.  :P I know there's an age difference, but I think the creators have dropped enough hints (it goes under radar, but it exists) and made them compatable enough to happen. As for Tuko, I don't think It will for the reasons of Maiko or Zutara (possibly, kattaang could stay.). Basicaly if Tokka happened, I don't think it will happen in a way where they kiss or anything, but will create a big foreshadow for a possible epilogue; such as Sokka coming to some sort of realization or something along those lines. If there is a kiss, I think it would be like Sokka is so happy they won that he kissed her on the top of the head and hugged her. IDK. I just have a feeling they will end up together.

I sound really obssessed.XD But your right, we never know what they will do in this show.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 03, 2008, 02:57:37 PM
Well, what can I say? I'm obsessed with Avatar too. I like your theory. In fact, it seems like that will probably happen. Well, I've been extremely busy lately, so I haven't found time to call him yet. :( But by now, it seems likely that he's on vacation. But hey, it's not like auditions are tomorrow or anything (If they were than we're in trouble). ;)

but since they arent I dont have to worry about that :)

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on July 05, 2008, 03:48:50 PM
I doubt it but you can see. I would try and call earlier in the day though like around noon. That's how I got him.

But i was just reading this article about Shyamalan and Avatar and in the storyboard that Shyamalan has drawn out there are 20 epic fight scenes. That's alot! He must be pretty confident that the CGI will not dissapoint. Sounds like good news to me.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 05, 2008, 04:10:49 PM
very good news. :D

I'd probably try calling Monday, he still may be out. Isn't the office closed on the weekends?  ???
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 05, 2008, 05:14:48 PM
I don't know, but you're probably right, I'll have a better chance on getting in contact with him on Monday. :)


20 epic fight scenes, that's awesome! This seems about right, since there's action in like every episode of Avatar. I was really thinking they should do this when I was imagining what the movie would be like. This movie will be a phenomenon.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 05, 2008, 09:52:28 PM

I have been working on a video that tells Aang's journey so far
like, editing one
its to "time is running out" by muse
so when I'm done I can post the youtube link here

(there is minor language at some points in some of the episodes)
but they are freaking amazing
so heres the guys youtube account that does those:

I LOVE the abridged series! XD I really wish he'd give us episode seven already.:p I think his specials are great too, like "When it's done" and the Angst (XD). The girl who makes the awesome trailers is another favorite. :D


I'd like to watch your video when it's done. :D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 06, 2008, 10:41:10 AM
I love all of those videos! Have you guys ever seen the Avatar Stupidity series? It's classic! ;D
The Angst is really hilarious too, being that I'm a big fan of Zuko. Oh, and then there's that video from Comic Con called Avatar: The Last Puppetbender. Another classic spoof of Avatar!

Good luck with the video by the way!

The series finale will be spectacular by the way, just like the upcoming movie...

happy late 4th!

i couldn't get on the internet, lets see what i missed shall we?




tokka? kataang? Tuko? what does that mean? is that the relationships between the characters? like how aang liked katara, and toph likes sokka?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 06, 2008, 07:54:08 PM
lol. No problem ,shadowbender. :D

yeah, pretty much. Tokka (Toph and sokka) Kataang (Aang and Katara) Tuko (Toph and Zuko) Maiko (Mai and Zuko) Zutara (Zuko and Katara)...there are a million names for these "pairings"...there's a shipping war all over the internet over this (Don't know how it started...or how these nicknames came about), and eventually one way or another you'll be sucked into it; no escape.XD 
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: riz_fo_shiz on July 06, 2008, 08:18:00 PM
sounds like fun! im for Kataang, or Zutara. im not 100% on Tuko or Tokka though... toph isn't a "people's person"  ;D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 06, 2008, 09:33:47 PM
lol, yeah, she isn't. XD...I'm 50/50 on Kataang and Zutara, and ship Tokka. :P The others I'm sort of indifferent on...Maiko is a maybe. IDK. ;D

It is fun though...I actually made a bet on Tokka with my sister (she's Sukka *:o!*)out of mere boredom and stupidity. XD.  What makes it more strange and obssessed sounding is that it's only One Dollar and she's eleven. XD.

A 16 year old making bets with a preteen...I have no life. XD

my sis is 12. she is very violent. I'm also for Sukka. sokka is crazy for Suki, but just for a twist, the makers would probably go for Tokka. that would be funny  ;)

OMG! im on this avatar site watchin some episodes, and i just watched the episode for the pic you have. with toph and katara and the scams XD funny as anything! im trying to catch up on what i missed. that puppetmaster episode is creepy though...  :-X

You never know with Avatar. I'ts full of surprises, so I really I have know opinion on what pairings will happen. :D

Post by: riz_fo_shiz on July 06, 2008, 10:05:39 PM
watch it be like toph and aang, and yue come back and goes out with zuko, while tylee falls for sokka.

they did have a "thing" between them in Book 2
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 06, 2008, 10:19:56 PM
You're right about that. In fact, I was just gonna say if Tokka doesn't happen than Taang should definately happen. Can't wait to find out. :D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 07, 2008, 07:15:40 AM
I can't wait! :D


I don't like taang much, but it's an alright one if Tokka doesn't happen.  :P
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: elemental-x on July 07, 2008, 12:27:31 PM
ooooh I like the idea of taang. I personally want Zutara to happen!
But I guess Kataang is sweet.
Very excited for the finale  ;D 
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 07, 2008, 12:39:44 PM
*points at you*Taang shipper! :o
Sorry, I couldn't resist. XD

Zutara wouldn't be bad.  ;D I'm very confused with the whole Zutaranng (Love triangle of shipping) thing. I could very well see Zutara happening, but then there's Maiko and Kataang. :-\ ???


WEEE!!!!!! ONE WEEK UNTIL THE FINALE!!!!!!!!!!! ;D ;D ;D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 07, 2008, 03:00:13 PM
I might die of excitement over this. I've already seen the western air temple, the firebending masters, and the boiling rock part one and two on DVD, so I cannot wait for July 17, the airing of the southern raiders. Then we have the 18th, the ember island players, ad then the epic, spectacular, two-hour finale, sozin's comet, on July 19. The suspension kills me! Again, I have no opinion on pairings right now, because I believe really anything could happen. ;)


Today is Monday, and I'm thinking Doug Aibel may be back. That being said, I'll try calling him today, hoping for an answer. I've got my fingers crossed he'll be there and have some more answers on the mysteries of these auditions.

You have the DVD too? Awesome! *high fives you*


Good luck with your call. :D

i don't have the DVD. i saw from wester air temple to boiling rock pt 2 on

avatarchapters.org

great site! though it hasn't been working right lately... will they ever show those episodes on tv? well, im still psyched for the finale!!!

Zutang? Zutara? Tokka? Taang? Maiko? TyLokka (i made that one up ;D)? WHICH WILL IT BE![/u]


Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 07, 2008, 04:19:44 PM
Nice scrolling thing. :p

Tylokka I think is the real name for that ship, IDK for sure though..:P.

The episodes starting with the WAT will air on July 14th at 8:00 ET and continue from there for the whole week. :D


YIPPEEEE!!!!!!

I'll try to be on later, probably after I finish some of my correspondence. If not, I'll probably be on early tommorow morning.


You have Sony Vegas? Lucky. :D I have a youtube with nothing on it.:p I don't have a whole lot of time to watch your vids, but I will.:D

I'm sorry guys, I had a long dinner and it looks like I can't call this late. Sorry to let you guys down. I'm making it a top priority to call tomorrow.

Whoa, you like "Harry Potter" and "Twilight" vamptasticavatar? Me too. :D Great books and can't wait for Harry Potter 6 and the twilight movie.

It's alright Shadowbender, no harsh feelings at all.

I never read Twilight, only becuase the library's waiting list is ridiculous and I haven't been able to buy one.  ::) I heard it's good though. HP is brilliant of course. :P


I sent you a youtube friend request, vamptasticavatar by the way.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 07, 2008, 10:18:16 PM
the Twilight series shares a special place in my heart with Harry Potter for best books of all time
I'm counting down the days till the next one in the series comes out (Breaking Dawn) as of this moment its 25 days :)

yeah I got it :) I accepted

So I'm defiantly also going to try calling Doug again....eventually
shadowbender, when are you calling him?
or just like, when do you think?
I don't want him to get all annoyed with us  :o
that would be a bad starting point

Post by: wingman on July 08, 2008, 09:31:13 AM
Okay, I'm new to this site, but I called Doug Aibel's office yesterday. The associate on the phone told me they weren't doing anything with it until September. I was so flustered that I forgot to ask the MOST IMPORTANT question: Is the fall casting for major roles like Aang, Sokka, Katara and Zuko?

I know; how stupid of me. Sorry guys, but one of us should call again and ask that question. I remember reading somewhere that M. Night said he saw thousands of kids already (so if the chances for these roles are slipping, then I'll need to find an agent). Sorry for this really long post.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on July 08, 2008, 12:06:09 PM
ok just got off the phone with a Doug Aibel associate.

They don't cast extras at that office. He said yes that it was for principal roles!!!

Let's hope he knew what he was talking about.

So I guess Heery casts the extras and Aibel the principal roles.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 08, 2008, 12:38:24 PM
Oh this is great! I am so excited, and it means we have until September!  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Did he say anything about it being an open call?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 08, 2008, 12:57:07 PM
Thanks guys for the info! Very good information! I was just thinking last night that September would be about right for casting. Oh man, I'm feeling so much more confident now! This is fantastic! :D :D :D Now we have only three questions left: When in September is it? Where are the auditions? And is it an open call?

I'm assuming you guys have seen the interview with Shyamalan on one of the Avatar DVDs. He said he would be casting mostly unknown actors. That being said, the auditions are most likely open.

Again this is outstanding news!!! :D :D :D I think we should call one more time to Doug Aibel so he can maybe answer those three questions, and then maybe we should call Paramount Pictures like Aibel said before.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: elemental-x on July 08, 2008, 02:21:34 PM
We got till September, which means we got the whole summer to prepare.
I think we should use this to our advantage.
I mean getting an audition is going to be hard work.
Getting a role for the film is going to be very very hard.  :-\
So we really got to work for it.
Taking up martial art classes, doing as much acting as possible,
Working out how to audition, just loads of things...
I've been lazy so I need to really step up.  :-\
Just been thinking... lol
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 08, 2008, 02:46:18 PM
First of all: Welcome wingman, and thanks for calling! :D

Thanks for the new info, happyelectrons! THAT'S GREAT!!!!!! 8)  ;D :D


I HOPE they are open...my only debate against that would be that article...if MNight supposibly said that they've casted thousands of kids, it could be closed and confidential to the public. Then, the fact that Aibel's office actually confirmed that information could say otherwise.  ???

Overall, lets keep praying, very good info here.

As for preparing, I still need to step it up; I've gotten a bit lazy over it myself becuase my correspondence is in the way of things. Other than that I try to practice acting whenever I can; and I'm trying to find a decent martial arts place...even that, my dad said  I can't do until my other work is done. :-\

exactly. that's what i'll be doin for the rest of the summer.

i didn't ask those other questions because they probably don't know yet. When i first called they told me fall and then someone else phoned in and got September. We got time to find out anyways. But i would still advise looking into and finding an agent just so they can do all the work with getting you an audition and all you'll have to do is go to it. I know that would take weight off my shoulders.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 08, 2008, 03:08:35 PM
Yeah, agents is a big "to do".
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 08, 2008, 03:12:23 PM
Yeah, it would help me out too...My mom and I were talking to someone so I could audition for a local play. ;D This would help out a lot.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: elemental-x on July 08, 2008, 03:42:52 PM
Yeah, agents is a big "to do".

Tell me about it... I'm really going to try hard from now on to get an agent.
I'm also going to make a "to do" list, might help me organise myself abit better  :D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on July 08, 2008, 04:50:52 PM
ok just to be clear, in The Last Airbender, what are all the principal roles?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 08, 2008, 04:56:58 PM
I am trying so hard to convince my mom to get me head shots, so an agent will come to me.  ::) I've never acted in anything before, and it's hard to convince her haha. Also, I feel like an agent would help me out with an acting class. No matter what, I hope by the end of summer I'll get one.

And for the first movie, the major roles would be Aang, Katara, Sokka and Zuko. I doubt they would cast for Toph, Ty Lee, Mai, or Azula until after the first movie is filmed. (They could get an Azula for the way end of the first movie; but that wouldn't be a top priority and it could wait).

Minor roles are more like Jet, Suki, and the Freedom Fighters. (It really depends what M. Night decides to keep) Haha we'll find out for sure in the fall though.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 08, 2008, 05:00:47 PM
I'm guessing this:

Main Characters
... Aang
... Katara
... Sokka
... Toph Bei Fong 
... Prince Zuko
... Princess Azula
... General Iroh
Major Secondary Characters
... Appa
... Jet
... Long Feng
... Mai
... Momo
... Fire Lord Ozai
... Avatar Roku
... Suki
... Ty Lee
... Admiral Zhao

Your right about the how they might not cast Toph, Tylee, Mai, maybe Azula until the secind movie...I hope you can convince your mom into an agent and headshots; good luck! :D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on July 08, 2008, 05:07:52 PM
so principal means major characters? basically the Gaang?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 08, 2008, 05:08:18 PM
the thing is, if hes looking for unknown talent
and if its open
you most likely don't need an agent
they CAN help if its not open
but open generally means that anyone can show up
like I know they had one for Lavender Brown for the 6th Harry Potter movie
I saw all these girls that went to it who posted things on youtube
I think they are more concerned on if you can be the part
not if you have an agent
also apparently you don't need previous martial arts expieriance
it may be good but they said its not required
I would probably MAINLY try and study the character you are aiming to be
if you don't really care then look at all the characters
because mainly also the first round of auditions is them asking you questions and maybe a little acting
if they do callbacks (which I'm sure they will) thats when they start getting you to act out full scenes and stuff normally
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 08, 2008, 07:33:18 PM
Thanks Alana 1991!  ;D

And yeah vamptasticavatar, I agree with you. But I do think I would want an agent anyway to maybe get my name out there and to model (I guess haha idk). I do think that if M. Night wants true unknowns, then he should make it an open call. I just don't want my chances to go away, and I need acting classes anyway haha  (so I definitely need an agent or an acting coach).
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 08, 2008, 09:13:20 PM
Well, in one interview with M. Night Shyamalan, he said he might shoot all three movies at the same time (Like what Peter Jackson did with The Lord of the Rings). So that means Toph and Azula might be getting cast right now or sometime a bit later than the other characters. But in another interview with Shyamalan, he said that he might not come back for the next two films, stating that he needed some rest. So this might mean that the Earth film and the Fire film will be filmed later than the Water film. If that is so, than Azula wil most likely be cast a bit later after the major roles for her brief appearence in Film 1, and Toph will be cast when the second movie is auditioning for new characters. So I guess those are two theories. :)

Oh, and wingman, what character do you wish to audition for? Just curious. :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 08, 2008, 09:42:49 PM
I was thinking Sokka (nearly 16). I just think he is so funny, and I would love to portray him.   ;D

Who would you audition for, shadowbender?

[Oh, and can everyone see my e-mail on my account...cause I can, but I asked it to be hidden. I figure maybe it only shows to me. And if you can see it, then how could I hide it. Thanks Guys.]

Another person going for sokka!!! woo! *highfives* im only 15, but that's close enough right?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 09, 2008, 08:52:40 AM
Yeah, Sokka is actually 15, so it's fine.

I meant I was almost 16, but I'm not sure if I said it right haha.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 09, 2008, 09:53:23 AM
awesome! :D Good luck. :)


Modeling actually might help, wingman. There was a girl on here who actually got an agent that way...I might do the same, I'm still looking at other option though.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 09, 2008, 10:48:27 AM
Well wingman, I actually want to go for the role of Prince Zuko. :D Modeling would probably help with an agent, and I'm pretty sure that modeling would definately help with headshots. ;D


Oh, and this is kind of random, but how do you get an icon or a signature for your username. I kind of want to define myself a bit more you know? Excuse my randomness.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 09, 2008, 11:28:32 AM
Oh, I was thinking the same thing, shadowbender.

Any new info. about auditions? (I'm trying to stay on topic haha)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 09, 2008, 11:57:35 AM
None right now wingman, but there should be some soon. :) Let's see, I think skander had the phone number for Paramount Pictures, I'm gonna see if I can find it in past posts, therefore I can call them. I thought they ought to know something. ???
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: skander on July 09, 2008, 02:33:38 PM
vamptasticavatar contacted Paramount, and I believe they suggested he contact Doug Aibel. It didn't seem they had much info at the time. Here's the number if you want to call: 610-251-9200
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 09, 2008, 07:25:10 PM
Thanks skander. I think now that if we need any info than call Aibel.


Oh, one more thing:

Avatar: The Last Airbender series finale is in exactly 10 days!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D :) :) :) :) :) :o :o :o :o :o

:D I'm obsessed


psshhhhaaaa.... i was in a six hour car ride, and every hour, i checked back on the site via my laptop and wifi adapter/ card/ chip thing... ;)


sooo.... here's what i have:

1. Doug Aibel is heading the casting for all principle roles (i.e. Zuko, Katara, Aang, Sokka etc.)
2. Heery Casting is doing extra casting
3. Casting begins this September
4. They might cast all three movies at the same time and film them at the same time as well.
5. Open/ Closed calls is still unkown, as well as location

anything i miss?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 09, 2008, 09:23:10 PM
nopeeee
I think you got it all
I'm actually planning on calling tomorrow about the last one
so hopefully we can figure that info out
It better be open
but like I said before, he said he REALLY wants new talent, so I don't know why he wouldn't
I also have noooo time to try and get an agent, and frankly, I dont know how *sheepish grin* :)
but yeahhh, that all sounds good (I totally spelled sounds wrong the first time...I wrote aoybsr.....thank god for backspace)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: riz_fo_shiz on July 09, 2008, 10:03:02 PM
idk what to do to get an agent either XD of course, having one would help SO much. i want one, but idk how to get one, or if im qualified
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 09, 2008, 10:25:49 PM
I do want it to be an open audition, but I feel that a ridiculous amount of people will show up. Oh well, the chances of making it will be very slim regardless, and this experience will be so much fun anyway  ;D!
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 09, 2008, 10:36:00 PM
it will! either way I just want to know I tried as opposed to not knowing if I ever could have or not
I mean even if I try and don't get it I'll at least know that I DID try :)
the thing is though the auditions are only for like 13-17? I think that was the age range
and half the people that watch the show are like 12...or if they are 13 their parents aren't really willing to have them pursue this yet
plus, most people think that Kevin Huvane or whatever is doing the casting
I think a lot will show, just maybe not as many as others
(Lavender Brown one being my main example)(I didn't go but there were SOOOO many videos on youtube which is like my home)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 10, 2008, 05:23:49 AM
Harry Potter IS the best example out there. I agree.:)

Exactly, just the fact of trying would be a great experience and (hopefully) a fun memory ;D..getting a part would make my life though.:P I do hope at least one of you (most of you; all of you would be great) land your dream role or a role in the movie in general.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 10, 2008, 09:47:39 AM
Yeah, I would hate to not try and keep wondering "what if?".

We just need one more person to call our friend Doug  :P and see if it's open or not.......
(Then we pretty much have to wait it out for more information)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 10, 2008, 11:07:00 AM
I'm going to call him around 2
I think his office opens at 1 but I don't want to be a pest :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 10, 2008, 12:26:28 PM
Sounds good vamptasticavatar. Some more info should be released soon on the net, especially places like Avatar Spirit. We should check that site daily. A resourceful site like that is bound to know something soon. And also, maybe we should frequently search on the internet "the last airbender casting calls", and then sometime maybe something will come up, stating where and when to be for the auditions.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 10, 2008, 12:38:56 PM
haha, we sound so desperate ( but i guess we really are 8) ).I do completely agree with you though, shadowbender.

I'm gonna work hard to get an agent, but I'll try to pass information I learn from him/her to you guys. Idk I'll see what happens this summer.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 10, 2008, 01:08:48 PM
cool. :D Yeah, I pretty much check ASN daily so that shouldn't be a big problem; I checked google not too long ago for new stuff and found nothing. I should try that again this week though.

good luck with your call. :)

Just out of interest, does eveyone wish to audition for major roles or extras?
And if a major role who?
I know being in the film would be very amazing no matter what the role.
But interesting to know  ;D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 10, 2008, 03:11:23 PM
Well, I'd wish to audition (preferably) for a major role. A minor role or an extra wouldn't be bad; depends on auditions I guess...like you said, being in the film would just be very amazing. :)

Title: Re: Auditions

Yeah, I'm going for a major role, but who isn't? haha... We'll see what happens

Did someone call Doug today? (I think someone said they were gonna)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 10, 2008, 03:54:28 PM
Yeah, I'm also aiming for a major role
the thing is I am much more of a Toph or Azula
I'm not as caring as Katara :)
I could act like that, but I think I would definitely be best at Toph, so if they don't cast all the movies at the same time, I guess I will go to the second audition
But like everyone else has said, I would be fine just being in the movie

but I tried calling Doug at 2 and 4 and he didn't answer
I will try again around 6ish
and tomorrow
Basically, I'm going to talk to him weather he wants to or not :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 10, 2008, 04:05:30 PM
Okay... oh and how old is Toph in the show? Isn't she like 12? (you'd have to look young if you'd wanna be her)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 10, 2008, 04:15:39 PM
yeah
I'm almost 15 but I'm not all that tall and I look pretty young
I can still pass for a kids ticket a lot of times (12 and under)
I don't normally but sometimes I run out of money for adult tickets cause they are like $10.50 now :P
but I diverge :)

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 10, 2008, 04:21:36 PM
haha i know tickets are ridiculous nowadays (wow that made me sound old) >:(

under casting for the home of this site it says that the guy has a neighbor that's about 19-20, and it said he got a call back for Sokka. The kid must be lying though because that is just way too old for Sokka. Idk, and I'm sure you guys have seen this (but for whomever hasn't then I'm just letting you know)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 10, 2008, 04:31:11 PM
oh gosh I know
stupid theatres

yeah I can't really believe that either
because then for him to look only a year or two older then Katara she would have to be like 18 so Aang would be like 16....caaaan't really see that.....
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 10, 2008, 04:42:22 PM
If they do that I will be very mad  >:(, but still go watch the movie  ;D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 10, 2008, 04:43:46 PM
same :)
its like with Twilight
well...for me anyways
 :D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 10, 2008, 04:46:29 PM
Oh, I haven't read that series...yet. I may once I see the movie and if it's really good. That's what happened when I saw the Golden Compass (and I think that series is tied with Harry Potter for me).
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 10, 2008, 04:54:07 PM
Cool, another Azula person! :D Toph is my favorite character, but I'm WAYYY too old and don't look like her at all. :P...I look like a cross between Katara and Azula, but Azula (IMO) in more fun to portray becuase she's a villain.  ::)


Toph is 12, wingman. ;)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 10, 2008, 05:03:33 PM
yeah, I agree with Azula being more fun to play :) Thats why I would mainly want her or Toph
Ty Lee would also be fun, I used to take gymnastics so I can do somethings but I don't think enough to play her :)

OHHH TWILIGHT IS AMAZING
the author approved the script and stuff so the movie should (hopefully)(better be ;)) good

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 10, 2008, 05:15:07 PM
I GOT THROUGH
he says that agents generally help but they are going to look at everything, all the submissions
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 10, 2008, 05:24:08 PM
Oh that is so great!  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Well I will continue to pest my mom into getting me decent pictures, which will hopefully lead to an agent!

I've gotta practice my Sokka impersonation too  8)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 10, 2008, 05:26:05 PM
gahhhhh I need September to come
NOW
and December
and November....
and July of 2010...
man I'm waiting on a lot.....
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 10, 2008, 05:28:52 PM
Haha yeah same!

... OH I forgot to add something in my last post:

Today I was watching Big Daddy, and my hairdresser was in it (for a second)! She told me she had an agent (cause I coincidentally had a haircut earlier), but before I could get enough... courage (?  ???) to tell her I was looking for one, the subject changed. Oh well, I can only hope my hair grows fast  ;).
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 10, 2008, 05:33:06 PM
ahaha :)
thats pretty cool!
the only reason I wouldn't want one is they can get expensive  :-\
but I may try anyway :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 10, 2008, 05:35:58 PM
But I thought they just take around 10% of commission?  ???

And yeah, my mom's been saying that it'll be expensive   :-\
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 10, 2008, 05:41:50 PM
If you pay your agent then it's most likely a scam.  ;) Just a heads up.

anyways:

THANKS FOR THE INFO!!!!!! WHOOO!!!!!!


Wait, submissions? How are they auditioning people? ???  :)


Wingman: that's cool, seriously cool. :D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 10, 2008, 05:46:04 PM
I have no idea....I was wondering that also....(how they are auditioning people)
I can try calling again tomorrow
unless someone else wants to :)
I've noticed they mainly answer later in the evening
the first time I called was around 5 and he answered and now 6 and he answered
when I called at 1 and 4 and 2 the other times no one picked up
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 10, 2008, 07:22:02 PM
Yeah I have the same questions: What submissions and how are they casting it.

Thanks, vamptasticavatar, and yeah that's awesome with your hairdresser being in the show wingman. :D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 10, 2008, 07:26:42 PM
I can't promise anything; I have been doing a lot of stuff lately that I really need to get done, but I would like to call them. If I can't call, I might email; but the last time I emailed them I never recieved a response.  :-\
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on July 10, 2008, 08:40:54 PM
Wow. So we don't even really have to have an agent for the auditions. This is seriously too good to be true. This is turning out to a really good summer!!

I'm so excited!!!! ;D ;D ;D

Wow, that was a cool message Alana1991. I looked at it and was like "What the?". :D Awesome. So am I correct? We don't need an agent? Fantastic! That being said, I'm starting to think that casting calls are going to be open. If this is true, that's great! Yeah, happyelectrons, this is an awesome summer.

But I thought they just take around 10% of commission?  ???

And yeah, my mom's been saying that it'll be expensive   :-\

Acquiring training and the occasional update on headshots will be expensive. You're right - your agent should ONLY take 10% of what you make.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 10, 2008, 09:34:21 PM
Yeah thats what my dad told me
he said the head shots and stuff were expensive
but yeah, I still don't even know where to find one
he said they send out ads on on the internet but I don't want to get some con artist or something
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: skander on July 10, 2008, 09:41:18 PM
You should find a photographer around your area. Just Google it. Legit photographers, as far as I know, have a website. I found several good photographers this way, around 5 top candidates, and I cut it down to one from there. It depends where you live, I guess. You might not find one in a small town. It cost me around $450. Then you have to pay more to get your headshot(s) of choice developed.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 10, 2008, 09:54:36 PM
My sister got head shots done before, because she was thinking about modeling (but idk she never pursued it enough  :-\). So I would know where to get pictures taken (well my mom would haha). I just have to convince her to let me do it. I keep telling her it's just for an experience; and if it doesn't work out, then I'll just be a better public speaker in the end.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: elemental-x on July 11, 2008, 02:33:07 AM
Wowowoww this is all very good news  :D
I think I still might try look for an agent as 'it generally helps'.
To be honest I need all the help I can get! ;D
But this is great news, very excited  ;D

Yeah...headshots can be expensive... and everyone try be careful with agents if they ask
for money and stuff, be on CON alert.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 11, 2008, 07:05:58 PM
Did anyone call to see what submissions were? If not... it's too late cause it's the weekend. So we'll have to wait to stalk our friend Doug  :P until Monday.
Title: Re: Auditions

What are submissions.. If that's your question it's your headshot and resume and maybe a video reel if you have one.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 11, 2008, 10:25:00 PM
Thanks for answering that question happyelectrons. So we now know what submissions are, but where are the auditions? But perhaps you send in a video...I don't know. This is a question that must be answered. ???
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: skander on July 12, 2008, 01:15:45 AM
Maybe there isn't anything going down right now with submissions  :-\ Didn't Doug say there was more info to come in September?

Well when I called the associate said they weren't doing anything with that project until September.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 12, 2008, 03:11:18 PM
Well we should just keep a look out, and we do know that something is happening in September, either more info or auditions are happening then. ???

wooh... i was gone for a day, but im back  ;) did i miss anything? i thought i read something about somebody getting a callback for the role of Sokka earlier on, is this true? did i miss any other important info? and what are submissions?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 12, 2008, 05:53:07 PM
Well, submissions are like your resume, headshots...stuff like that.
Title: Re: Auditions

oh, like stuff you would submit to the person who you are auditioning for XD i get it now thanks
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on July 13, 2008, 11:03:00 AM
awesome! :D Good luck. :)


Modeling actually might help, wingman. There was a girl on here who actually got an agent that way...I might do the same, I'm still looking at other option though.

*raises hand* Oh!!! OH!!! THATS ME!!! *smiles*

I think I posted something a while back about what you should put on your resume and stuff. It's a lot of fun, actually writing it all. ;D

I'm making a vid and sending it to Doug Aibel. If it gets sent back, oh well, i'll just send it later. ;D hahaha

(((sry if i'm a little delirious. I just got back from italy yesterday, and the jet lag is making me a little weird. lol)))
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 13, 2008, 11:17:30 AM
iamkatara... do you have to pay an agent? or do they take 10%?  ??? (or both)

I still need to convince my mom, so I can build up a resume.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on July 13, 2008, 11:23:17 AM
I'm pretty sure i only paid like 40 dollars, and then that was it(besides paying for headshots) they should only take about 10 percent, which is the usual. I'm freelance now, because my contract ended, but i'll find another agent soon. lol. I'm going to call Aibel today. hopefully I'll get some answers. ;D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 13, 2008, 12:16:19 PM
Is Aibel working today? I thought he was working tomorrow. ???

Italy? That's awesome! Did you see any good locations for The Last Airbender movie? :D
Title: Re: Auditions

Yes! Less than a week until the Avatar finale. Tomorrow The Western Air Temple airs, and then the end begins...Very sad, but very exciting.
Title: Re: Auditions

iamkatara, could you possibly tell me where you posted what you write on a resume? :)
I'm just a bit clueless :D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 13, 2008, 04:19:30 PM
So ok I've been looking for some time now about any casting call info for the last airbender movie
and I happen to see this forum, But im just wondering..... remember that comingsoon.net site
where they said that M.Night has possibly found the children to play the main roles and that they
already saw thousands of kids that auditioned for the movie.... well Im just wondering that if M.Night
has already seen thousands of kids that auditioned for the roles why would Doug Aibel say that casting hasnt
started yet and that its gonna start somewhere in september....I mean thats kinda weird...unless hes only
casting for extras.....which I hope not  ???
or maybe just a thought since Doug Aibel works in a theatre maybe theyre adapting Avatar into a theatre type thing
too? and not into a movie...and his casting for the theatre type...
If anyone calls him again pls ask if his casting for the main roles in the new the last airbender MOVIE.
Ty I hope hes casting for main roles I really wanna try out for Aang  :-\
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 13, 2008, 04:26:05 PM
and oh ya heres the site where I got the info form he seen thousands of kids...
http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=45822
Sorry for the double post  :P
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 13, 2008, 04:49:07 PM
Yeah we've seen that too. Why M. Night said this is unknown. I don't believe that M. Night is lying, I simply think he is trying to create hype over the movie. I hope it's nothing like a theatre production, I would like to audition for the film. If you look on IMDB it says that Doug Aibel casted some of M. Night Shyamalan's films. I just think, if casting has already happened, it seems like it should have been a lot easier to find. If I ever call him I'll try and ask those questions you had.

Welcome to the forums GotRice! :D 
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 13, 2008, 05:05:06 PM
Yes, Welcome! :D


You know, that's not a bad question...but like shadowbender said, he's casted for Mnight before...I guess it wouldn't hurt to ask that.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 13, 2008, 05:17:28 PM
See at first I thought that too, but what he said in the interview I saw was that "they have seen thousands of kids and he believes hes found the next superstars"
I'm not sure how to put it into words really :) but I think he means that he has seen thousands of kids out on the street, and the ones that are in this movie, are the next superstars
because after that he said "these kids are sitting at their desks at school or at home doing homework or eating dinner, and in two years they will be on the big screen" so I think hes just saying, whoever is casted, they are going to basically be like the next Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 13, 2008, 05:43:40 PM
Actually, that might be what he's saying...that makes sense...I wastched that interview once and was like"???" becuase I read the article beforehand. :p thanks for possibly clearing that up. ;D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 13, 2008, 07:23:08 PM
AHH this is making me so excited  ;D !

I can't wait until I get an agent and all that fun stuff
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on July 13, 2008, 07:37:55 PM
It's the best to be like "Yeah, i have an agent." It's kinda fun to say it.

oh... and i forgot to call today, so i'll do it sometime tomorrow. I've been really busy since i've been back. I went trapeze flying today. it was AMAZING!![/offtopic]

but anyway, i promise i'll call tomorrow.  :D

EDIT: here's that resume stuff you asked for

well.........

Name
Age
Height
Weight
Hair Color
Eye Color
address
e-mail

the any experience
wether it be theater or tv or radio, you split it up

training
(any kind of training for acting, singing, or dancing, or modeling. anything in the entertainment business)

Isn't it spectacular! :D

Ah, I will miss watching the shows. Great memories...well, we still have the movies, which we all hope to be apart of!  :D Avatar really changed my life, and I know that may seem a little too dramatic, but really, it's one of the best things I have ever seen on screen. Being apart of the Avatar universe would be amazing, so I really need to find the auditions, and I'm sure you guys all feel the same way.



Vamptasticavatar, that's a good theory about what M. Night Shyamalan said. Now I'm starting to think that M. Night simply said it wrong. Well, it's good to know that we most likely didn't miss the auditions.

What would be really cool is if M. Night has read some of our posts. I mean, this is a very popular fansite of the filmmaker, and you'd think he's most likely seen it now. ;D

Thx ShadowBender and Alana Glad to be a part of this forum  :)

Omg watch this new info in whereabouts OF the last airbender set
I wanna go to Vietnam xD
http://www.mnightfans.com/

and umm what does he mean those people will come from all around the world in pennsylvania
does he mean the actors or just the people working on the movie  ???


Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 14, 2008, 06:43:31 AM
WHOHOOOO!!!!!! SO EXCITED!!!!!!!


I think it means actors, crew, etc...:)

This is great stuff! It actually in a way ties up Aibel to the casting, he mentioned stages in the video clip...what do you think? :)


Shadowbender, that doesn't sound dramatic...aside from Harry Potter, Avatar has really changed my life too. :D

Oh, MNight reading this would be awesome! :D If he is reading this:

Hello Mr. Shyamalan! ;D





Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on July 14, 2008, 08:01:04 AM
All of this just made me smile. ;D

About that theory, I think that's a good idea. He could have just said it wrong, or else how could Aibel say that? I'm calling him once his office opens. ;D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 14, 2008, 08:46:49 AM

I am so prepared to bug my mom about all of this today too  ;D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on July 14, 2008, 08:54:14 AM
No kidding. And today is the perfect day to call, although the theater is closed. oh well, it's best for me to leave a message. ;D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 14, 2008, 08:58:47 AM
Well it's usually opened around 1. You should probably wait until around then.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on July 14, 2008, 09:35:27 AM
Oi. I just called. Scariest moment of my life. I wanted to call early so I would catch the answering machine. Here's what I said to him, bc i wrote it down.

Hello Mr. aibel,

My name is *********** and I was wondering if I could talk to you about a couple things about the Last Airbender movie. I realize you don't have a lot of time to speak to me, but I would just like to cleat a couple of things up for myself as well as my friends on avatarspirit.net and mngihtfans.net. If it's ok with you, I would also like to send you a reel, along with my resume and a couple of headshots of me acting out the character, Princess Yue, I would like to audition for this fall, because that's when we heard you said the casting would start. Thanks for your time and I hope to speak to you soon. My cell phone # is ****************. thanks again. Bye.

Scariest 3 min of my life ever. ;D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 14, 2008, 10:01:14 AM
Thats good. I hope you get a call back from him. :D


I was probably gonna email him...I can't ever seem to call him, and I don't have a cell phone number to give him if I left a message or something along the lines anyways( :-[)...if I send an email, should it be something along those lines maybe? ???




Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 14, 2008, 10:45:40 AM
Well I wouldn't bother with an e-mail, because I sent one before (he still hasn't e-mailed back). Calling would actually be better if you called when they were in. That way, you could get immediate answers about your questions.

What questions would you have though?  ???
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on July 14, 2008, 11:28:08 AM
it's in this forum a couple pages back and welcome to mnightfans.com!

We've already asked all the questions that were able to be answered at this point. I suggest reading back on the last 5-10 pages to soak all the info in.

Welcome to MNightFans.com!!

Doug Aibel's theare doesn't cast extras. I called and asked about it and the associate immediatley told me that this theatre doesn't cast extras. All the roles they cast are principal. Also I made sure to specifically say the words Shyamalan The Last Airbender Movie. So it's anybody's guess what the heck Shyamalan was talking about.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on July 14, 2008, 11:38:00 AM
basically the same stuff we wrote on here. and you probably shouldn't call unless you're seriously considering auditioning for the movie.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 14, 2008, 12:55:07 PM
OMG this is actually good news xD finally a real info about auditions
not some creativeartistagency@hotmail.com crap  >:(

and btw can anyone ask how to actually audition? do we send videos and resumes?
or go to NY and audition? is it open casting call?

I hope it is  ::)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 14, 2008, 01:03:08 PM
I believe we go to New York, and it could be open or through an agent. (Guys, correct me if I'm wrong)

BTW there's an Avatar marathon on 122 from now until like 7.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on July 14, 2008, 01:06:01 PM
it'll be in NY, i suppose, considering thats where the vineyard theater is.

and thanks for the marathon info. watching the boy in the iceberg right now. ;D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 14, 2008, 02:20:16 PM
Yeah, I'm watching the marathon too. Great episodes...Good luck iamkatara with your call. That was good what you said on the message! :D Right now we're practically making history by working so hard to get to the auditions. This is probably the most talked about auditions of all time, and we're all apart of it. I'm feeling more and more confident each day. I feel that in the fall we will all be going to these auditions.



Ellebeifong, welcome to the forums! :D As I do for everyone else here I wish you luck for the auditions! ;D

Wow its like the audition is meant to really happen in fall
my parents said I could go anywhere I want this september as
a graduating present, I was thinking of Rome but I guess Im gonig to NY
lol  ;D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 14, 2008, 02:41:51 PM
Awesome, GotRice! :D

If it's in New York, I hope I'll get to go. For conveinence I hope it's a send in video. That would be stressful to be put on the spot in front of people such as Aibel. Also, you could probably practice more if you made a video. I don't know if I can afford to go to NY in the fall. Also, the lines would be incredibly long at NY for the auditions. So yeah, a video would probably be eaiser for me, although going to NY would be a good experience. But now, I think any way to audition would be great!

you guys are my internet best friends :) I just want you to know that :D
GAHHH IM SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ok now that thats out of my system :)
this is all really good info! Yeah shadowbender I agree, a send in video would be more convenient, but I would love to go to NY, I don't think my dad would have a problem with it cause he LOVES NYC :) I guess thats where I get my love for it from.
When we do all go (and not IF, because we will :D)(and if its not a send in video one) we should congregate outside the audition room
I dont know just a thought :)

Very exciting! I need to convince my parents to go to NYC...at least one of them. :D If I can't go, video it is. (I still want to GO though). :P

It's the beginning of the end guys- exciting but very, very upsetting.  :'( :o :'(
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 14, 2008, 10:36:59 PM
The beginning of the end indeed wingman. Very sad, but unbelievably exciting. I just saw this amazing commercial a lttle while ago on Nick for Sozin's Comet and went nuts with anticipation! :D

Thanks, vamptasticavatar, it's nice to know that there are great people like you guys that also have the same ambitions as I do! :D :D :D

It really is marvelous that we've come this far, and the fact that we may be seeing each other in New York City, auditioning for the role of our dreams. I remember when I first heard about "the live-action 'Avatar' movie from M. Night Shyamalan"...immediatly I thought how miraculous it would be to get a role in that film, and how amzing it would be to be apart of the "Avatar" universe...I immediatly knew I had to get the role. I thought about it every day since then. It's funny...before discovering that there would be an "Avatar" film, I thought how spectacular it would be if there was a live-action film based on the series, and then, the spectacular happened. And, here we are, knowing that we will be auditioning for "The Last Airbender", a movie that will be remembered forever. And like the movie, I'll remember this mesmorizing experience.

What I"m saying might seem a little too dramatic, but really, it's all true.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 14, 2008, 10:51:31 PM
you said it all. :D I actually when I first heard the idea (ashamed of the thought now) was a bit skeptic...but the thought never left my mind, and from then I began to think of ways that this can actually be pulled off, then how it would be great, and so on; especially since this movie isn't going the traditional hollywood route (if you know what I mean)...I was just a bit afraid, being a fan, of the possibility of it becoming like the eragon movie...but I really at this point don't think that AT ALL, and hold high hopes for the movie and MNight.

Actually if it is open casting calls I believe you can send in a video reel
because remember the guy who plays Ron in Harry Potter
he actually sent in a Video of himself acting for the auditions
so maybe we can xD and besides I really wanna go to Rome lol!

Yes, you are allowed to send in a video reel if you can't make it to the casting site. For the most part, it's meant for those who live out of the audition location range.

Post by: iamkatara on July 15, 2008, 07:32:20 AM
I'm seriously excited for the auditions. Whatever it takes, I swear I'll get into these auditions. I promise it. I pinky promise it. I don't live too far from NY, so that shouldn't be a huge problem. I just have to convince one of my parents to take me to THE audition, which shouldn't be that hard if they know I want it, WHICH I DO!!!! Uggh, I'm so excited! Oi!!! I have to keep practicing! *Runs away but not really* ;D

I wish. But at least we found out about this now, and not like a week before auditions. Now we have time to prepare and get ready. Send in tapes. all of that good stuff. We can get a jump on the auditions now that we've researched it. ;D

could someone tell me when the auditions are..please tell me...and also where we can send tapes and resumes....i need some help, please. no one will answer my phone calls or answer my questions whenever i call the places or email the places where "supposedly, you go for auditions"...so i have no clue now...so please help me out...thanks =)...
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on July 15, 2008, 12:10:51 PM
hey. welcome to the auditions thread on MNightFans.net! and welcome to MNightFans! Your best bet is to read back a couple of pages, brobably from like the 10th back on, and just skim. It gives you more info than I could probably write right now. ;D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 15, 2008, 01:23:28 PM
Yes, welcome! :D We know that something is going on in September, either more info on auditions or the auditions actually happening then. More info should be released soon, don't worry. We don't know for sure, but we think that auditions will be held in New York, for that is where the casting director of "The Last Airbender" is at. If it's an open call, than you can most likely go to the auditions or send in a video. You may need to build up a resume, being that we were told it "generally helps", which goes the same for an agent. However, an agent might not be necessary, because M. Night Shyamalan is said to be looking for unknown kids. But then again, you never know what might help. As of now we're trying to get a hold of Doug Aibel, the casting director for the movie, so that then we can obtain more information. You can get Doug Aibel's phone number at the Vineyard Theatre website (Just do a simple search on Yahoo or Google etc. of "Vineyard Theatre").

So again, welcome gwags33, and best of luck to you with auditions! :D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: gwags33 on July 15, 2008, 02:22:24 PM
okay...thanks so much!! But one thing, has the main cast been chosen yet. I know a lot of people want to be the main characters...but no one knows if they have been chosen yet, so if they have...please tell me, and is there anyone else I can contact besides Doug...
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on July 15, 2008, 02:24:24 PM
I'm 70% sure they haven't casted the main characters yet. I say 70 because there has been no press about it, so we can't truely be sure. the best thing to do is snoop around and try and uncover some stuff.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 15, 2008, 02:52:24 PM
Right, and I think I can recall someone asking Aibel or someone if casting has started, and he said "No". That being said, he was probanly talking about the principal roles.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 15, 2008, 03:44:20 PM
umm actually there was some sort of press thing about it in BuddyTv.com about the
john nguyen guy rumored to play the role of aang and ether brent was in it too wasnt he?
I know for a fact that noah hunt probably didnt audition or anything because arent u not allowed
to reveal that type of information under a contract or soemthing? as for the other chinese kid that was
rumored to play aang it was just a picture posted in a forum no actual site proved it xD
and no news about katara except eleana fox O.o who is she?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: riz_fo_shiz on July 15, 2008, 04:21:48 PM
i haven't heard anything about the main roles being cast. i wonder if they would put in on tv or not... i don't think so...


OMG! ITS DAY 2 OF THE FINALE WEEK!!! ITS ALMOST OVER! THEY BETTER HAVE ANOTHER SEASON, WITH SOME OTHER FOE.... maybe like, Aang finds signs of more living air benders and he pursues them.  ???
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: gwags33 on July 15, 2008, 05:12:15 PM
so the cats hasn't been chosen yet...cool!!! Okay anyways...one more question...does anyone know where to send videos or resumes...??? thanks!!
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 15, 2008, 06:16:24 PM
Well, you would most likely send it to Aibel, but I wouldn't right now. I would wait until he says "Okay, you can now send in videos of yourself auditioning for one of these characters: ..." And that would probably go for resumes as well, being that I don;t think they're accepting these or videos yet. I guess we have to until the fall.


Oh, and do you think it would be cool if I called Aibel tomorrow? And you know that creative artists agency mail address that was supposedly M. Night's address, but it was most likely his agent's? Well, there was a phone number with that, and I thought I oughtta give it a try. Maybe his agent knows something that M. Night is planning to do with casting. Just a thought... ??? It's worth a try isn't it?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: riz_fo_shiz on July 15, 2008, 09:16:17 PM
that sounds like a pretty good idea! give it a try and see what turns out ^^

oh, and this is to anyone who lives kinda near PHILADELPHIA!

MIKE LEMON CASTING IS HAVING OPEN CALLS TOMORROW, AND THE 23rd! THEY ARE ALSO HAVEING PRIVATE CLASSES. ONLY 12 STUDENTS PER CLASS ARE ACCEPTED! THEY ARE THE WEEK OF THE JULY 21 AND AUGUST 18. FEE OF $500 IS RECQUIRED
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 15, 2008, 09:51:38 PM
Thanks riz! :D Yeah, that's awesome that Mike Lemon Casting is doing that, is it like an acting class or something that builds up your resume? Either way, it's awesome that the guy who casted previous Shyamalan films is hosting this! :D

So, yeah, I'll try calling Aibel again tomorrow, and then I'll try calling Shyamalan's agent.
Title: Re: Auditions

No, it's for Mike Lemon's agency or something. It's all on his website (just type his name in on google). I don't think teens are allowed to come to the one next week, though. But let me know if I'm wrong.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 16, 2008, 11:51:57 AM
Actually, I think Lemon casted Shyamalan's Unbreakable, and maybe some of The Sixth Sense. I think that was it.

Oi. thanks for telling me. lol

where do you get this information?
do you just surf random websites?

Yes. We just surf the web until we find something. that's about it.  :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on July 16, 2008, 03:04:09 PM
yeah. Mike Lemon did location casting for Shyamalan in Wide Awake, The Sixth Sense, Signs, Unbreakable and The Village. Location casting is casting extras. But he's casted principal roles for many other films as well just not of Shyamalan. Doug Aibel casts the principal roles in all the Shyamalan films.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 16, 2008, 03:18:09 PM
Thanks, good to know! :D

Ellebeifong I basically just go to wikipedia and imdb for info.


I'll probably call the two people later, but to be honest I might be very busy. Ah well, we'll see what happens. :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: riz_fo_shiz on July 16, 2008, 03:19:16 PM
ok. im here to clear things up ^^

Mike Lemon Casting is NOT doing the avatar movie! that is Doug Aibel's company. MLC is a casting company just like any other. the week long thing is like a mini camp with lessons and stuff to build up your resume, just like shadowbender said. the one day long thing is an OPEN CASTING CALL. from that they will evaluate your talent and put you into a section of extras, main roles, small roles etc. depending on your skill level. to participate, you need to show up, and have a 1-2 minute monologue prepared. if you are a memeber of MLC (like i am) then they can go from there and start signing you up for some real auditions for movies.

anything i miss?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: riz_fo_shiz on July 16, 2008, 03:20:23 PM
No, it's for Mike Lemon's agency or something. It's all on his website (just type his name in on google). I don't think teens are allowed to come to the one next week, though. But let me know if I'm wrong.

yes, its only for teens. its a teen casting call  ;)

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 16, 2008, 04:50:35 PM
Guys, I have some good news and very bad news.

Here's the good news: I called Aibel, he said that he couldn't answer any questions at this point being that info would be released n September. So, more info in September.

Now get ready for the bad news: Yes, I contacted Shyamalan's agent. He said that casting is in progress or is done. Most characters are about to be cast or already have. I asked if he was talking about major roles and he said yes. Casting calls are not open. Then, I asked him maybe where I could go for auditions. He said, "Well, basically we call you. You know, when you get noticed. Then, I asked him if an agent helps, and he said, "Yeah, to represent you that would help a lot."

(Sigh)...Who do we believe, his agent or casting director? This "already been casted stuff" seems like rumors or something. I'm feeling really down, and I'm sure you guys are too. I'm sorry I had to reveal that horrifying news. I'm not stoping though. I'm gonna do whatever it takes to get my role! I am not gonna let this happen. So, I'm gonna try to get an agent A.S.A.P. And whatever happens, we ARE going t audition.


I'm very busy for the rest of this month and won't be back for a while. But I will be back, and hopefully with  more information. Until then guys.
Title: Re: Auditions

you said that the number you called was with that creativeartsagency@hotmail thing right?
cause that e-mail was for Kevin Huvane who people thought were doing the casting and it wasn't his actual e-mail address because I read on his website that he said he has no hotmail account
so if that number came with it then its probably a fake
Title: Re: Auditions

Very slim, sorry. But maybe you'll be lucky  ;D!

I really hope that I still have a chance to audition. If not, oh well....  >:(

I just think if M. Night did cast it already, he lost a great opportunity to find many unknown, aspiring actors. It really should be open call!

I'm sorry you guys; this sucks for all of us.  :'( It doesn't mean I'm still not hoping the best for you guys, you're all very nice people...if anything, it may not be our time, unfortunately...Still, we shouldn't give up, maybe something miraculous will come.

Thanks anyway, shadowbender, for telling us...it's better to know this info.  :)

I still feel ill though.  :-[ But in spite of all of this, we still have an awesome looking episode to look forward to tommorow, if anyone else saw the preview for tommorow's avatar you know what I mean.

Yeah, The Southern Raiders. :)

Who knows, maybe something miraculous will happen. But like you Alana, I am in serious deppression right now. It just would have been great to be apart of the Avatar universe. Like I said before, Avatar changed my life...


Well, here's the link to the website. Unfortunately, I saw no creativeartistsagency@hotmail.com.

Here's the link:

http://www.fanmail.biz/26908.html

Yeah, so let's hope Aibel is right. If not...that's aweful. Who knows if Aibel is lying. Good luck, gwags33 to your trip to Philadelphia...I wish you best of luck, and hope you may find something miraculous.

I guess we are just going to have to wait till September
BUT if they don't film all three movies at the same time, maybe theres luck for being in the 2nd or 3rd movie
(I have no idea, just trying to be optimistic)

in the meantime we can talk about the season finale week episodes
had you guys seen the boiling rock episodes before today? I bought the dvd about 3 weeks ago so I had already seen them, but I still watched it tonight :D

Avatar is probably the single best thing next to harry potter IMO...as for TV shows, it's the best cartoon I've ever seen; heck, it's one of the best shows I've seen. This may sound dorky, but it's inspiring. ( ;D)


Vampasticavatar, I did the exact same thing, like you I own the DVD also. :D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 16, 2008, 09:50:11 PM
Totally agree. Who knows, maybe we still have a chance to be in the 2nd or 3rd, like you said vamptasticavatar. Remember, Shyamalan might not return to make the 2nd or 3rd films, so maybe that means a different way of casting, like open calls, and maybe the actors in this film won't return for the sequels. It happens. And then maybe we'll get to audition for the next films.

And yeah, I've already seen The Boiling Rock as well, on DVD. Great episodes, and I can't wait for the next phenomenal episodes to come.

Hmm did u actually call that number from that site shadowbender?
is that really his agent or is it creative artist agency's phone number?
the phone number is under the address information
OF creative artist agency not under shaymalans agent O.o
as I recall I remember something about that creative artist agency doesnt
take unsolicited messages,resumes, calls, etc unless its a agent

should I believe a site that looks suposedlly legitimate or a casting directors word?
ughh hard to decide

Im sorry for asking alot of questions im just trying to piece anything ANYTHING
to prove he hasnt casted yet  :'(
Title: Re: Auditions

ugh i doubt they gonna recast the main actors from movie 1 and be different for movie 2
they will probably use the cast from movie 1 unless they reallllly suck at acting
which I hope lol  :P and ya I guess good luck to all the girls whos gonnaa get casted in movie 2
as I recall theres no important "guy" roles in season 2 except girls and of course an old man for ozai
lol sucks for us guys
  :-X so either be casted as the main role for movie 1 for the men or not be casted at all lol

Well...i hope i find something in Philadelphia...and me and ,my grandparents will try to find something...I'm not trying to lift your spirits...but I seriously do not think that cast has been chosen...because creative artist agency confirmed that they were not affiliated with creativeartistagency@hotmail.com... it is very unprofessional for them to use a hotmail account...anyways...to get back...this "creativeartistagency@hotmail.com" e-mail address also asked several kids for "pictures where they have no shirts". A real agency would never ask a child for a shirtless photo...so this also leads me to think that castings have not started yet...and if shadowbender did get has information from creative artist agency (m night's shyamalan's agent)...hes lucky, because I tried to contact them so many times about this movie, but they never said anything about casting. They said that they weren't doing casting, so to try to find who M Night chose for a casting director...which we found (Douglas Aibel)... now all we have to do is hope that Doug is telling the truth...I hope he is...


Thanks everyone for listening...please let me hear your feedback too....thanks so much!!!

umm this is what im implying kinda its actually hard to get info from anyone about castings for this
movie so to just find a contact info in a site that couldve been created by anyone at anytime
is a bit weird?
hmm oh well as u guys say that u are calling doug aibel and he supposedlly(has to be) a legitimate
casting director for him to say that casting hasnt started till fall and find out that hes kinda lying is
a bit unprofessional( I dont think he would lie about something like that or it would cost him his job
and people wont trust him) I dont think thats a risk his willing to take if his casted for big movies.

ALSO
actually I just had a major flashback
I called Paramount who is actually PRODUCING the movie
and THEY said that Doug Aibel is the casting director for the movie
and I doubt that Paramount would lie....
and if you want to know where I got Paramounts number I subscribed to the 14 day free-trial of IMDB pro which is what is sounds like, for the professionals
they give you the name and the number and address of all the companies affiliated with the movie you look at
the trial is over, but me being me copied every single address it had for contact on the avatar movie and saved it (hehehe :D)
so yeah, Paramount themselves said Doug was their casting director
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 16, 2008, 11:21:31 PM
OMG so basically whoever shadowbender talked to was either lying or have no idea about the movie
ummm vamptasticavatar can u pls post the adresses and contact info from IMBDpro
preety pls xD
lol for that info I just loved you rite now xD

make sense cause why would a casting director lie?  :-X

oohhhh nice thx vamptastic xD  ;D

you know i just noticed something, u know the site that shadowbender
gave that has the contact information for shaymalan
http://www.fanmail.biz/26908.html

well okay each province/state has a 3 digit number that is the same in every beggining
phone number that is within that state/province
for example MTV phone is 323-956-8023 and Nickelodeons phone is 323-956-8650
and both companies are within the state of California and have a 323 digit
the other company which is in Conshohocken, PA has a phone number of
610-251-9200 so any phone # within PA starts with a 610

well the phone number that supposedly be real for CAA is (424) 288-2000(from the site)
the site says its the CAA from Los angeles so if its phone number is that it should start with
a 3 digit of 323 making the phone number fake xD

weee case closed  ;D


 
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 17, 2008, 12:49:28 AM
Omg we may actually still have a chance  ;D
and btw the 3 digit thing is called i think local number
its also the same for other countries I checked
like canada etc xD
if you doubt compare ur phone numbers with your friends
within YOUR state/province
and also compare with distant relatives or phone numbers outside your
state/province xD they'll be different

wow i feel like a detective lol
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: skander on July 17, 2008, 12:53:06 AM
There would be no reason for Doug Aibel to lie about casting if he is stating that it hasn't begun and there is more information to come in September. However, there is certainly a reason for CAA to claim that the major roles of the film have been cast in order to get the hype surrounding auditions to die down a little while they haven't started yet. This way, the agency won't get so many phone calls from all those who would like to audition and obtain more info, especially since they aren't the one's casting the film. Even so, this would look rather unprofessional on CAA's part. In addition, I wonder how many incoming calls Doug has been getting lately about the casting for Avatar? Probably quite a few, and it's likely getting a bit annoying. That would give him a reason to say that casting is complete, but he hasn't and he won't, because it wouldn't be true.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: skander on July 17, 2008, 12:56:56 AM
The first 3 digits 424 is what CAA Los Angeles uses. You can check it out on their website. I believe it is something you can get changed, especially for an agency like CAA. My cellphone does not use the same area code as the households in our province.

Post by: GotRice on July 17, 2008, 01:14:53 AM
wow ok forget about everything i said oh well i  just got excited maybe its fake
 :-\

wow ok i actually get what skander is saying or atleast maybe
so what your saying is that CAA is not involved in anything for the last airbender
and that they just lied cuz they got annoyed of the phone calls?

and besides CAA doesnt do unknown actors i think cause of agents and everything rite  :-\

and oh ya shadowbender didnt talk to the agent probably because the fanmail.biz site hast the same
phone number as just the CAA company if its an agent itll be different O.o
so basically he just got a response from a worker behind the phones and not an agent
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: skander on July 17, 2008, 01:25:08 AM
That's right  :). And as far as I know, CAA is solely a talent agency, not a casting agency. I don't think they mess with unknown actors, they work with the best.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 17, 2008, 01:37:04 AM
Haha so we just kinda proved that Doug Aibel IS the casting director
and that CAA has nothing to do with the movie except as Shaymalans Agent

So we are kinda like 85% sure that castings has probably not started
and 15% is ehh maybe!!

SO GUYS DONT GIVE UP WE CAN STILL PROBABLY HAVE A CHANCE TO AUDITION
YOU JUST GOT TO BELIEVE AND CAPTURE THE DREAM!!

hey, so i'm kinda new kinda not, my last post was a looooooong time ago,

anyway to give some more credibility to the casting stuff, i have called:
Paramount
Nickelodeon both New York & L.A.
MTV New York  and L.A.
and Blinding Edge Pictures.

Ya I called a lot - even bought a calling card ;D
 although they were all monumentally unhelpful the one thing that I did get out of them was that I'm to call Doug Aibel the casting director in New York, to get info for auditions.  And ya they would wanna lessen some of the hype about auditions, less people bothering them and more time to think about people who are auditioning.

So i would tell ya to stick with doug aibel, and to shadowbender even though you got that horrible news, fake or not, your positive and determined attitude is amazing. Even though the news was depressing near the end you made it optimistic. thanx dude ;D

there names are Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall...maybe we can try to contact them...or there agents to get info...

anyways, i have a genius idea...why dont we just try to contact m night shyamalan himself about the movie...hahahahah, it would be a lot easier...=)

I really think everyone's focus should be getting an agent. Yeah, it would be great to get in contact with M. Night, but if we had agents, they could annoy people for us  ;D! (Just a thought)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on July 17, 2008, 11:22:58 AM
I kinda realized forever ago that they'd want to make the audition info a little hush hush. It's kinda usual in Hollywood. God. I was gone for a couple hours and you guys have gone from so happy, to a complete breakdown, to extremely happy again.  :D :D :D :D

I wouldn't think Aibel is lying. That I know for sure. He's the casting director, and he wouldn't lie about casting. it's his job. lol

That agent of shyamalan IS lying. He probably doesn't want swarms of phone calls coming into their office( especially if he isn't Shyamalan's agent. I'd be careful about that.).

Clear things up a little? ;)


I should be getting a new agent soon. I need one if I'd ever like to audition for anything.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: gwags33 on July 17, 2008, 12:12:17 PM
also two things....

some people should help me find out some more info on the other two directors Kathleen and the other guy...because they have just as much power as Shyamalan...or almost as much...

also...what do you guys think of that younger Chinese boy, who was "rumored to be Aang"...I'm really worried because he looks a lot like Aang...and they said he does martial arts....thats a big plus, and i know a lot of poeple who want to be Aang...so...did he make it, if so, does anyone else know about him??
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on July 17, 2008, 12:13:23 PM
Yeah i would be more inclined to believe Aibel. But what Shyamalan said in his preview is still nagging at the back of my mind. That's prolly why the call to Shyamalan's agent stuff was so easy to believe. I try not to be a downer but why would Shyamalan himself lie about casting. But I fully believe Aibel too. It's just confusing. And I agree with wingman, agents would be really useful right now. And get some good headshots incase you can't land an agent by September. And i gotta remember not to get my hopes too up, you never know in this business, you know what i mean?

I think that other kid is just a rumor I won't believe anything till i see someone official say it.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 17, 2008, 12:27:59 PM
lol that creative artist agency email crap was proven like before you
and I even joined this swags i think it was like 3 months 4 months ago it was proven O.o

and about the other chinese kid that sopposedly rumored to play aang i if he and john
are battling for the title I would go for the john guy kinda lol something about the other kid...
that I kinda dont like plus john guy has some acting background lol. and the other rumored
chinese kid was just posted in a forum no actual site like the john guy news
Anyways wouldnt mind me being Aang to lol since Im hoping to audition as him
yay for me being short and asian and looking like a kid

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 17, 2008, 12:47:25 PM
I just dont like the kid lol something about him doesnt seem right
not because hes taking Aangs role I just have a hunch that guy just
put his picture up as a lie and told everyone hes rumored to be
attached to Aang I hate liars lol after that email thing was fake hated them even more
(wow omg I hate myself cause I lie too in my life hehe)

Oh well if those 2 guys really battle for the role I PICK JONATHAN NGUYEN
looks more asian(because he is) the other kinda looks caucasian lol O.o
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: gwags33 on July 17, 2008, 12:52:07 PM
hey your right...but i don't think he just put his picture up...i think he did audition...just like Noah hunt...but the kid is Asian too...just half, but it makes him look more like aang, and thats what I'm worried about. Johnathon looks too old too, and too Asian...aang is Asian and so is every member in the show...( don't try and tell me there white people with Asian names...come on there Asian)...but Aang doesn't really look tottally Asian...anyways...he looks a lot like aang...and thats whats getting to me lol...i really want to be him =D...and i cant have some kid who looks like him taking my spot...=)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 17, 2008, 01:18:40 PM
I contacted Paramount Pictures about a week ago and asked them about the auditions they passed me onto the person who is supposed to have some info on the casting calls/auditions she told me that she had no idea when they were but that they were being done somewhere in New York by an independent casting director I called a few directors and companies but with number of Agencies and Directors I don't think that the list will ever end, eventually I gave up since it takes too long and there are not many chances of finding the person so I wouldn't try going with that option to find the auditions also logically the director can move from country to state to find unknowns so anyway he or she might not even be in New York :-\
I have seen a few people on forums saying that they were supposedly mailing Kevin Huvane of Creative Artists Agencies but what they didn't know is that it is probably and maybe sure that this email is a fake as a few other people called up the CAA and they clearly stated that they did not accept resumes and auditions just like that... I do not recommend that you send any of your personal details to this email :-[ Anyways I like probably lots of people have run out of ideas to find the actual auditions if anyone has called up any agencies, has any   info, knows something, anything just a tiny peace of info or tips to what we should do please feel free to post ;)

Haha more proof that Doug Aibel is the real casting Director weee the 1st post lol

And wags no one knew he is half I know he looks like it but no information actually
went out on the internet except his picture whered you get the site again as a
resource where all this info was leaked out?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: gwags33 on July 17, 2008, 01:29:34 PM
i dont know that site...im just going along with the picture i saw...maybe someone else knows??? but from all the hype about him...it seems like he got it...and i want it lol
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 17, 2008, 01:54:03 PM
ok the only information i got that is kinda a resource is that a
kid going by the username of sweewag on the tv.com forums
posted the picture of the chinese kid and it was kinda his first post
my guess is that sweewag (whoever he is) is the chinese kid lol
and he just posted his picture up for probably fame or something

and besides that picture doesnt look like from a show or a proffesional photo
another thing is that I reviewed the pictures properties and it originated from
http://www.tinypic.com/
if you wanna check go to the buddy tv forums:
http://www.tv.com/avatar-the-last-airbender/show/28841/the-last-airbender-movie-official-news-and-discussionupdated-06-17---new-poll/topic/13281-965058/msgs.html?page=35
right click the picture and click properties
itll show you location: http://i27.tinypic.com/2l8b0d0.jpg
which is form the tinypic website
the sweewag kid said he saved the photo up so basically if he save the photo
he would have right clicked and save image as... and a legitimate known site shouldve have been
different from the location rather than tinypic.com
which anyone can post picture in
The site is not a forum or movie news type of thing its just so people can upload pictures videos etc.
 :P

This is the only site that I can find this picture from and its a forum so basically itll be
probably 99% fake  ::) giving the other proofs that surrounds it

sorry I have to be like this my dad is kinda like a cop so I got it form him lol
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on July 17, 2008, 02:03:45 PM
I doubt it but I've been wrong before. Most things that originate on forums are lies. The reason they become such huge rumors is because there is some kernal of truth to it. Like this one the guy does look like aang and the movie hasn't been officially cast yet. I've already dismissed it, mostly because there was the same hype about Johnathan Nguyen.

I know we already kinda solved this but, also about the Aibel thing, his office only casts principal roles and that directly conflicts with "Shyamalan's agent". One of them is definetly lying so I'm guessing the "agent."

I don't have an agent, so I would absolutely love for it to be an open audition.. And it would be nice if they traveled around a bit, say, have a spot around St. Louis, or even Chicago..

GotRice, I think you are thinking what you want to think. I bet the kid got the part, don't worry were all down and you don't have to be jealous. It is clear that you over analyzed that to the max! Hehe, and you really need to stop being so obsessed. How long did it take you to come up with that? Oh well, I hope your over-analyzation wasn't wrong, lol. So, any new news? Or just over obsessed fans trying to get the part of Aang, and trying to bash a kid that they don't even know, so pathetic. But, that's just my opinion.

I know it was your opinion or whatever, but that was rude. Please don't come onto the forum just to bash other people. It's all speculation and he can hate the kid if he wants to. There's nothing wrong with that. Don't come on here to put down others. (looks at the persons post count).

That's what I thought.

Please leave if all you intend to do is make foul and crude remarks. Thanks.
[/offtopic]

I think what we have to do is just practice and mabye ask some more information in late august. mabye like 1 week before the start of september. Any opinions?

I think we should mabye stop calling Aibel for a while. Ya know, give him some breathing room.  

I wouldn't trust that "agent" guy. Aibel is well known and runs the casting for a theater as well as many of Shyamalan's movies. I doubt he would lie. I think what Shyamalan is trying to do is just create hype. We've known him to be secretive. He's made cast members sign confidentiality statements for goodness sakes. He probably just wants too keep it hush hush and we're just weeding out info from the source. We're probably most likely spot on with Aibel.

EDIT: BLT, you could probably pull off Suki or Azula. Prob not toph. Your face is the wrong shape for it.

What about me? Think i could pull off Yue? ;)

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 17, 2008, 05:06:52 PM
Actually Im not obsessed and certainly not jealous if he gets the part (gratz to him if he does)
well maybe I am obsessed but Im not obsessed about being Aang Im obsessed more about finding the
truth cause after the email crap was proven fake I dont want people to get the wrong idea
and have all their hopes shattered cause it was also hard for me to face that a jerk would actually do
something like that. Im just basically trying to seperate the truth form lies because
people have the right to know if their being scammed!! and as I said before I
hate liars. Im also not trying to over analyze but basing my accusations in proofs and facts.
and you know if that email crap wasnt proven wrong some children might be missing right about now
Im sorry I have to bash the kid in the internet but if I have to, to reveal the truths to the people I would...
but lying over the internet for no apparent reason, for just fame and glory is even more pathetic and lame.
But, thats just my opinion. :P

Well, GotRice I didn't seem to be rude. I was just pointing out a true fact. You tell me not to be rude to you, but there you go being rude to a kid you don't even know or his side of the story. Maybe he is Aang, and maybe is isn't. All that is important is that we find out about AUDITIONS, LOL!!!! To get back to subject, I wasn't trying to be rude, but seriously, you really did over- analyze, to the max. So, I think we should all stop being so judge mental over a kid you don't even know. That's just my opinion.


IAMKATARA: sorry but no, You look nothing like Yue. Yue is Asian, not white, and you can clearly tell your hair is blonde, not white.

But keep trying. =)

OK ok truce truce I know I have a tendency to over analyze things lol
I got it from my pop hes a cop T.T lol

anyways umm no she looks allrite as Yue the hair u can always dye it O.o
lol ::)

and SKUIisHOT lol welcome to the forums  ;D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: SKUIisHOT on July 17, 2008, 05:23:45 PM
Alright truce lol. I know where your coming from though. I really want the cast to be good, and I don't want people telling me and others who really want to be in the film lies about them making it. But, the kid, I don't know if I think he was lying. I don't think he would lie about that, it's just so immature, but he could have. If he did get Aang I would be satisfied. He looks like Aang, and if he really does martial arts, thats great too, even better!


And for the girl, I think she looks nothing like Yue. But she can think what she wants lol. If she thinks she's "cute" and looks like Yue, she should go for it. But, personally, I really don't think she does. She kinda looks like this annoying tall girl in my school. Hehe! Sorry =)

getting alot of new members here. yeah i like to think this forum is giving ppl hope. We're kinda the unofficial thread for the auditions here. Welcome to all our new members and if u read back you'll see we're pretty positive and friendly here so i'd certainly be cool if it stays that way as we grow.

Yeah the best thing we could do right now is probably to stop bothering Doug Aibel for a bit, if it's in September than we don't need to bug him till around then. For folks who seriously want to act I would say your priorities are get into an acting class, headshot, and an agent and your agent can guide you from there. And for folks who just really want to audition for Avatar I would focus on a good headshot and maybe some classes to put something on your resume. Good luck to all of you who really want to go for it.

Oh yeah and it really pisses me off too about ppl lying. I can feel u guys on that.

Post by: gwags33 on July 17, 2008, 05:34:10 PM
Wow lots of fighting...hahahaha...i think the fact that no one knows really good information about this movie is getting to everyone.

listen to this you guys, I had my mom call paramount and guess what they said. They said that "the last airbender, wasn't on their list of upcoming films, and that they had no idea what she was talking about."

now that is total bull...sorry for language, but these people keep lying to us, when they obviously know information. It makes me so mad that they are hiding everything. I mean if they would just tell us something good, we wouldn't bother them lol...but seriously, they need to stop lying and i really want to be in this movie and i need answers!!! hopefully Philadelphia works out for me =(!!!
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on July 17, 2008, 05:39:26 PM
haha. the nerve. i wonder if it was the associate she talked to or if they tell all the ppl who answer the phone to say this. Yeah answers would be nice.

i hope philly does work out. If i may suggest you can try and find out stuff where the soundstages are going to be built next month. That may lead you somewhere. Or try and visit Blinding Egde. These are just suggestions though i know you prolly have stuff to do. I hope you find something though. :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: gwags33 on July 17, 2008, 05:43:05 PM
yea well, Ill try im flying from new hampshire to phili to visit my grandparents...and i have a good idea...hahahahahahah its kind of funny too...lol


maybe one of us should call doug aibel and be like "hello doug this is m night, I found the a character who I want to be aang. * then he will say but you already have someone, or okay cool who is he?* That way we could find out if the cast has been chosen or not...haha i know it's wrong but i think we should do it hahahaha
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: As1a on July 17, 2008, 05:45:14 PM
it's understandable. not acceptable, not nice, but i understand that they just don't want a huge mass of people.

see, if people have agents then they can pick and chose quietly. and especially with this perticular movie, they need people who can act. other wise the movie will suck.

very crucial.

what we have to do is find some connections.

anybody you know ever been in a show, or movie? anybody who knows anybody with connections? school drama department teachers?

they're everywhere. we just have to get creative.

i know of a few.
with that i'm going to try to ask them to reach higher up the chain to find some info.

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 17, 2008, 05:45:38 PM
haha thats actually a good idea gwags lol

and As1a good luck lol I hope you get some info but
casting people without agents doesnt really mean they will suck
look at harry potter it was open casting call
and the main roles act preetty good specially emma watson lol
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: As1a on July 17, 2008, 05:47:44 PM

IAMKATARA: sorry but no, You look nothing like Yue. Yue is Asian, not white, and you can clearly tell your hair is blonde, not white.

But keep trying. =)

Yue is actually Inuit, which all waterbenders are. Bryke said so.


and my hair isn't blonde. it's actually brown.

That's the pic that's in my sigg. ;D

gwags: that's probably a good idea, but I doubt he'll fall for it. also the fact i'm a girl won't help. hahaha

-adding on to my paramount post:


but i'm not trying to bring people down! nonono!

i don't have much acting experience i just think good acting is good acting. years of training or not.
we all have a chance, it's all fair game :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: gwags33 on July 17, 2008, 05:53:14 PM
well...my old teacher was a ballet dancer in some movies...but she moved to Ecuador and is unreachable lol...um, i had an agent when i was younger, and got to be a movie, one, and that was my only job. My sister is a model and her agent is the same one I used to have...there called dynasty, a talent agencies in Boston... look up there website, its...dynastymodels.com...He told me to come back, because he liked me, and I never did want to go back, but now i do because i so badly want to be in this movie. The only probably is, it cost a lot for a casting card...like 1,000 and my parents don't have the money for that...so, i have no clue lol....maybe he'll take me for free, but I doubt it. I'm going to contact him tonight and have him answer some of my questions =)...
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: As1a on July 17, 2008, 05:53:56 PM
annnd they are going to need people (training or not) who can bring the realisim to the film. thats all i'm saying :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: gwags33 on July 17, 2008, 05:55:37 PM
also Inuit people are also Asian...look them up on Google...

very Asian..and they trace there origin back to Asia too...just saying =)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on July 17, 2008, 05:59:52 PM
all good ideas. Well i have an acting class that i'm starting next week who have good connections in L.A. not so sure about New York. Hopefully i can get something from one of the instructors. Their most successful students are on like Disney Channel stuff though (not being a name-dropper but) Her students include Cody linley, demi lovato, selena gomez and madison pettis. But maybe they can help us, who knows.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: As1a on July 17, 2008, 06:01:31 PM
gwags- what is katara suppost to look like?

i hope my connections could get us somewhere.
ok so i know;

a teen, Oliver, who has an agent and has been in the acting buiz for some time, he's played and house and more (i forgot lol)
a niece who was in commercials and a main char in janet jacksons music video,
a friend whos grandpa is the producer of broadway,
a friend whos dad is a hollywood producer.

lets cross our fingers X)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: gwags33 on July 17, 2008, 06:03:27 PM
well considering the creators said she was intuit...maybe Inuit?? I don't know...why would you ask me that...that was stupid...

Post by: babyloutattoo on July 17, 2008, 06:05:12 PM
Oops, sorry iamkatara.. I went off to eat dinner and forgot to mention I was leaving/logging off.. But yes, I definitely think you could do Yue. You look very much like her.  :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 17, 2008, 06:09:02 PM
Wow thoes are some good resources As1a and Happyelectron
I hope we get some vital information from them   :o

as for paramount lying .....
wow speechless

guys Just dont call anyone as of rite now in those categories
probably a week or 2 before september they probably getting really annoyed  :-[

and that was not a stupid question gwags maybe she hasnt seen the show or something
I dunno..




 
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on July 17, 2008, 06:15:02 PM
yeah no such thing as stupid questions. I'm guessing anybody that looks like her has the potential to play her. I think it'll depend more on if you capture her character or not. Put looking like her helps. Because we do live in America and given the nature of American cinema she probably won't be Inuit, and there are going to caucasian actors in roles that many ppl think should be asian. That's just the fact of the nature.

Anyways I'm excited for the show tonight. It's brand new and is dripping with lots of action from Katara. I'll see u guys tomorrow.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: As1a on July 17, 2008, 06:18:10 PM
well idk, i never heard the creater say anything about what they look like so anybody that knew anything i though would know what katara would look like.

i have native american roots, not quite Inuit, but maybe it could work :)

i gtg get some jamba juice then off to yoga. i'll be back at 6:30 my time (2 1/2 hours from now)

Happyelectrons- i agree. no such thing as stupid questions. also i love your name lol
i just hope they find the perfect actors ^.^

i hope to see you all later ~!

Namaste,
As1a

bloody hell I'm gone for like 3 hours and 3 new pages appear
you all are mad :)

anyways NEW EPISODE IN 10 MINUTES (eastern time)
I'm pumped :D:D:D:D:D:D

also about the looking like thing
yes that is a fact that they are not going to go searching the far ends of the globe for someone who looks like the character especially putting into account the amazing technical and make-up departments the industry has today
They can dye hair, make skin darker or lighter, change eye color, etc.
so I have a feeling they are going to be looking not so much for exact look a likes but more who captures the "essence" of the character
I know that I look almost identical to suki but with gold hair but thats obviously easily fixed
same as toph but with gray eyes and once again golden hair
but all those appearance aspects are not hard for them to attend to

firstly, welcome new people! :D And sorry I forgot to thank you skander. :D


Alot of stuff here.....I DO think Iamkatara could pull off Yue, I agree that everyone doesn't have to be asian to be in the movie, I just think if they have resemblence and could act it out then go for it. :D


i have native american roots, not quite Inuit, but maybe it could work :)



you too? awesome! *high fives you*

Sorry, I'm part Cherokee so this is cool. :D

Agree completely, you said it all.:D In a way you do kinda look like Suki (judging by your youtube :)), but I could see Azula too (hope that's okay). :) It wouldn't be heard to alter hair at all.
I look more like Katara in a way, I have Darker skin than Azula, but it's somewhat lighter than Katara's and I have azula's brown eyes and straight hair so...IDK. :p Skin is proabably a bit harder to alter, so I'm stumped.


LASTLY!!!!
THE SOUTHERN RAIDERS WAS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i'm going to prepare a video for the auditions just in case.
(suggestions?)
how should i present my resume? on paper and send it with the video? or just say what i've done in my vid?
(suggestions wanted again ^-^)

and did anybody go the the AX?
Title: Re: Auditions

ALERT: LONG POST

holy crow you guys its a good thing I stopped having it send me e-mail
seriously you all are crazy
and I love it :D

oh yeah yeah azula is fine! even though she is evil shes actually my second or even first choice of who I would want to play. Seems like playing evil would be fun :D

I actually got my hair cut though about 5 days ago though :D its a little below the chin if not right at
but yes I digress
Yes I agree, skin is probably harder to change so I would say katara, they could always do contacts and hair dye but skin would be a bit harder :)

Actually I have the phone number for Binding Edge.....
shall I post it?

I would say put skills and stuff in the resume, thats normally what happens with it
you can search on google and it tells you what stuff you normally put in a resume
as for video I would say maybe list the characters you would like to audition for, what you are willing to do (like if you are willing to dye your hair or something say that) and then act out a few scenes with each character you are auditioning for :)

WHOOHOOO!!!!!! Congrats! :D *throws confetti on Riz* ;D


That (IMO) is the best idea for a video, vampatsticavatar...back when I thought that Huvane vid was real  >:(, I was thinking of doing something similar to that...maybe that plan should stay for everyone here. :)

You know, my dad said the same thing about Katara, just needing blue contacts and changing the hair around, so I shouldn't rule her completely out (but he's also said I sorta look like Suki too, so IDK; confused)...Katara isn't a bad character at all, she's one of my favorites, but I like playing villains :P. I might just do the plan stated earlier if they accept videos...I hate being indecisive. :-[ lol.

Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 17, 2008, 09:30:29 PM
woah yeah really riz congrats!! thats big!!

ahahaha don't worry I'm not totally sure who I would wan't to play
my first two are Toph or Azula but I really don't care which
after that comes Suki then Ty Lee
ahaha dads are never helpful, they give you more input then you want then you get all confused :D
at least, thats what my dad does
or he's just like "I don't care." yeah thanks dad -_-
ANYWAYS (man I need to work on staying on topic)
yeah Katara would be fun to play though! and from what we have seen of her in a few episodes she can get a little aggressive :)

and for that girl a few posts above...I dont think catsing has started yet, I think some roles have been attahced but not finale lol...and yes maybe i could visit blinding edge...and could you post the number....


but im still going to write them, hopefully they answer...what about dounglas aibel...is he in nyc? I go there like once every month because my relatives live there...so do you think it woudl be a good idea to stop by and ask them some questions???

help me..and also please not lets stop finding answers. I think we should call around to places and try to find connections, we need to know if the auditions have past or not. I think I'm going mad, I have spent my summer on forums and stuff trying to find out when or where or if auditions have past...and it is seriously tearing me apart, so if the castings have been done...im seriously going to be so down...so help me out...and maybe some positive feedback, I dont do to good with negative, but if it is negative about the movie...please tell me..like if you think that cast has been chosen, thanks lol

the character i want to play is... take a guess! *pokes sig and pic* other than him... i'd say, maybe Haru, but he's like 17 and im way too young to play him, possibly one of jet's fighters. i can't think of any other roles for a black kid...

I past madness LONG ago. *does insane laugh* If I haven't been on forums and hunting google for possible news on this, I've been doing schoolwork (go ahead and laugh :-[) so it's been busy.


Oh,I think he is in NY. :) Not a bad idea at all, that'd be great. :D should we help make a list if you do this?

vampasticavatar:
lol...my dad does that too. My family is very opinoionated so if it's not my dad it's everyone else (which is A LOT of people, my family is very big).  Katara lately is scary and awesome...she would be fun. :D So, I'm thinking Azula or Katara, and for minor I will say Suki (I said Tylee once earlier, but once again I changed my mind *shocker*lol.).


Riz_fo_shiz:
Hmm....maybe jet. OR, if they add in Hahn, Yue's fiance...or some of the teen roles from season three. Haru or Jet could work too. Good luck with Sokka though. :D Sokka is 15 so 17 is only 2 years, so I wouldn't worry too much about the age difference if you feel your too young. heck, they've casted adults to play teens before, I don't think teen playing teen would be bad. :)

Speaking of that I HOPE they DON'T cast adults.O_o? lol.

*I'm still hyped from that episode so I'm I'm all out there that may be why. XD*

I'm 5'3".. but just barely. Or maybe it just depends on the nurse who measures me. It's really not that short for a girl, but it definitely cuts down on opportunities I have. For example, I could never be a model.. unless some modeling agency comes up for the average/short people. And I'm pretty sure people would prefer some typical, anorexic stick to be a singer (I'm about 120.. give or take a few pounds). Although, some are a little wider and shorter when it comes to rock.. but I definitely don't have the rock style voice, as I've been told various times.. Oh dear, I'm ranting again, aren't I? I'll just.... shut up now.... heh heh..  :-[

Hi guys! It looks like a lot of new people signed up too!

So, anything important I missed regarding auditions?
I heard that they're going to film all three films simultaneously. So does that mean they are going to cast characters right away, even if they don't appear until the second/third book? Because I really want to be Toph! lol Or Katara. Or anyone really. :)

Helllozombie!!!!! Welcome back! :D


Well, I'll try to sum it up the best I could:  We think Aibel is Casting the movie, and he (most likely) hasn't casted anyone yet..then we ran into a spot when it was rumored to be over, but that's fixed. More info about casting will be out in September.



5'5" isn't that short. For a lot of actors, that's the average, even for guys.  ;) (Harry Potter cast is the best example I could think of...Daneil Radcliff is 5'5" I think.)


Babauloutattoo, you could still model. They do have petite modeling (don't take to offense, it's just for us people who aren't 5' 10" +) and teen modeling in general.  ;)

WOAH! so many new people. Took me ages to read all that i've missed  :)
Been so busy have just finished the musical Oliver! something to add on my resume  :D
Now time to start hunting for an agent.

ooooh and I would love to play Katara... and then maybe Yue.
But I would feel blessed to be a randum extra in the background  ;D

ahhh wingman your so lucky I wanted to see that at midnight so badly but my parents didn't want to drive and neither did my friends parents so we had no transportation :P

I think the episode looks kinda good for the sole reason I think Zuko and Aang are going to fight over Katara
I know that thats a bad reason but I think it will be exciting to maybe find out who she likes :)
it looks kinda funny also :D
but I'm easily entertained

Well I hopefully still have a lot of growing to do and I'm 5'9''. Idk if it'll affect you though happyelectrons- maybe if they got a taller Sokka or made you look shorter  ???

Today, I think my mom is going to call my hairdresser to see how she got an agent (why not, right).  ;D And then I guess I'm getting pictures taken next week, which I feel is gonna be awkward  :-\. Oh well haha.

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 18, 2008, 12:39:57 PM
ummm i looked up what pre production meant and umm....

Pre-production is the process of preparing all the elements involved in a film, play, or other performance.

In the film industry, pre-production usually only commences once a project has been developed and is greenlit. At this stage a project will generally be fully financed and have most of the key elements such as principal cast, director and cinematographer in place, as well as a screenplay which is satisfactory to all the financiers.

During pre-production, the script is broken down into individual scenes and all the locations, props, cast members, costumes, special effects and visual effects are identified. An extremely detailed schedule is produced and arrangements are made for the necessary elements to be available to the film-makers at the appropriate times. Sets are constructed, the crew are hired, financial arrangements are put in place and a start date for the beginning of principal photography is set. At some point in pre-production there will be a read-through of the script which is usually attended by all cast members with speaking parts, all heads of departments, financiers, producers, publicists, and of course the director.

Even though the writer may still be working on it, the screenplay is generally page-locked and scene-numbered at the beginning of pre-production to avoid confusion. This means that even though additions and deletions may still be made, any particular scene will always fall on the same page and have the same scene number.

wikepedia ...... :'(

im undersatanding that they casted or something O.o
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 18, 2008, 12:56:35 PM
but it does also say

Because this project is categorized as being in production, the data is subject to change; some data could be removed completely.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 18, 2008, 01:03:58 PM
but still it actually gives us time i think from july 14th the day it was posted on imdb
to may of 2009 where its suppose to be the production date it actually give us 10 months before movie starts
and since isnt auditioning a 3 month process or more we stil lhave a bit of time
so I wouldnt really believe they casted yet...
and since Doug Aibel said september!! ehhh.....i dunno anymore.... ::)

reading what that thing said on top really just made me depressed but to whoever
got casted(if they did) gratz to them....I just hope we still have a chance
 :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(
*goes to corner and cry*
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: gwags33 on July 18, 2008, 01:12:06 PM
i think were all thinking the stuff we want to happen, lol. I seriously don't know if they casted or not, some things bring to believe they did, but other things bring me to conclusion that they haven't casted yet. But if they haven't they must start soon because casting does take a while. then the cast that does get chosen has to learn martial arts and learn more about there character...most of the cast probably isn't even avatar fans, just people who want to be in a movie. most avatar fans, don't have agents and only want to be in the movie because they love avatar so much. so this leads me to think that most of the cast is not fans. but...anyways, i hope they didn't. cant wait until Saturday at 8...isn't it a 2 hour movie?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 18, 2008, 01:17:48 PM
oh ya i forgot about the learning martial arts too
that counts for probably 2 months and cast has to learn scripts and stuff
.......
wow these is really making me believe they casted and stuff
but on the other hand Doug Aibels words....
i dont know what to do anymore....

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 18, 2008, 01:25:21 PM
and plus that quote that shaymalan made that hes seen thousand of kids is

roles is mostly done....
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 18, 2008, 01:26:58 PM
the only thing I am thinking is I called Paramount
the people who are actually PAYING SHYAMALAN to produce the movie
they have more power about it then he does
and THEY said that Aibel is the casting director
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on July 18, 2008, 01:54:06 PM
exactly they were called and told someone on this forum that they had no idea what they were talking about. I think we should just wait for more news. That's pretty much all we can do. Sooner or later we're gonna find out what's going on.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: As1a on July 18, 2008, 02:16:53 PM
hopefully before it's too late.


i think everyone should make an audition video. then send it directly to Doug. i'm getting some acting training over the summer just in case.

please everyone, remember that it's pretty 50-50 right now weather or not we even have auditions to audition for. and that if we dont have a chance, we tried! i'm amazed at your determination. i wouldn't have gotten this far with out you guys.

so what i'm trying to say is that, keep your spirits up! no matter what happens! okay?

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: gwags33 on July 18, 2008, 02:23:24 PM
well...here i go, listen to this...


Okay, say casting starts in September, and filming starts in may of 09...that gives them 9 months to get ready the movie. That means casting, learning their parts, scripts, buildings, learn martial arts ect. if casting does start in September, then everything works out...if casting has started...we are screwed lol...but i think that my conclusion is right...but only if casting hasn't started because ten months is plenty of time to get ready fro everything...
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 18, 2008, 02:30:39 PM
Actually if casting starts in september that leaves 2 months basically wasted
so casting would be probably be done somewhere december january if it is in september..
that leaves 5 months for martial art training, script memorization, and basically
whats ever left the cast has to do......

So yes we do have some time IF auditions actually start in september!!

why cant people just say casting are over if their over nothing wrong bout that
rather than disappointing thousands of kids hoping of what couldve been
I just dont want this thing wasted without even trying....
ugh Im so frustrated..... >:(
I feel so helpless rite now  >:( >:( >:(
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: As1a on July 18, 2008, 02:32:03 PM
in my audition tape i think i'm going to put my resume, my monologue etc.  i really want them to see the character in me, in the way i talk and move and look, im just going to be myself. in my monologue, i'm going to act as if it was my own experience. and i think i'll put in some footage of what i do. its crucial that they see the character in me, if they don't then i can except that. because then i'm just not right for the movie.

best of luck to everyone!

does anyone have a myspace?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 18, 2008, 02:37:21 PM
I guess creating an audition tape doesnt hurt...
Ill probably audition for the 3 main guy(Aang, Sokka,Zuko)
roles so if the other one doesnt work out I can be the
other one...I hope making a vid actually will be helpful
If those 3 doesnt work out...I just want to be part of the
movie...
I really want to make it in the acting buisness but if youve
seen lately not so much asian pple in hollywood
this movie will definetly help.... :'(

Except my mom is away next week, so I'll have to wait  :-\. I hate waiting. Like I hate waiting for tomorrow night to come for the series finale.

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 18, 2008, 05:43:49 PM
Well my mom really isn't for it. But she understands that it's something I want to do- or she may just think of it as a phase. I've always wanted this, and I feel that The Last Airbender would be a perfect place to start. However, I would still pursue acting even if it's already been casted.


Oh, and I may put up my head shots once (or if) they're done  ;D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: As1a on July 18, 2008, 06:09:28 PM
wow thats tough guys.

prove them wrong! i really suggest getting involved in some  nearby acting activity. like look up on the web, "acting, plays (and then what ever town you live in)" to find some sort of studio where you can train over the summer. or ask your highschool drama teacher, just keep asking for help. or maybe a friend or cusin who has done plays. then learn from them and come back to your parents, with whom ever tought you, and show them. show them what you can do. and that it's worth trying for.

thats just my suggestion.

and if your 18, dude you're legally an adult. you can pursue you dreams if you want to. (but try to get your parents support)

i'm not overly over weight but i know it would show up in film, so i started excersizing everyday and cutting out sugers, soda, breads and just unessisary stuff. cardio is key.

my parents say i should follow my dream, they've always blessed me with the freedom of choice. i've devolped as my own person more then anything i think, since i haven't been forced into any sport or religion. but i can't help but get the feeling they think it might just be a faze, like they're going to help me but they know it won't work. i just think, all it takes is one, and i don't see why it couldn't be any one of us. if i don't make it, thats ok i can accept that. but i can't live with knowing that i didn't even try.

so i'm going to show them that i can act. first, i'm going to find out if i can lol.

keep going everyone!   :D

shes also done some castings together with Doug Aibel for most
of Shaymalans earlier movies...maybe shes a casting director for
"The last Airbender"...
hmmm how to contact....
I think I have a hunch....maybe wrong though lol..

hmm she was a casting associate in "The village" and "lady in the water"
but a casting director in "the happening"
maybe she got promoted  :o

Does everyone here realize that Kevin Huvane is an agent for CAA and not a casting director? That's not to say that agents can't become CD's, but I don't think Kevin has any casting credentials under his belt. Just a thought.

Edit: Oh, wait, I found this posted on IMDB on February 1 2008, which states that casting has not commenced (around that time).

I did some research myself and managed to contact Kevin Huvane from Creative Artists Agency (CAA) and beleive me when i say it was DIFFICULT!

He did confirm to me that castings HAVE NOT commenced (i'm pretty sure he's telling me the truth), except for some actors which have already been attached. Unfortunately, the main character, AANG, has already been assigned to attached Australian actor, Jonathan Nguyen, so i guess the rumors are true.

I'll try to phone again to ask about the casting information.

AVATAR ROCKS!!!!

Skander you posted this a long time ago in the other auditions page...
but just asking did u talk to kevin huvane for real or was it
the fake email?if u talk to huvane did he really say those things?
cause if he did he might be part of the last airbender movie then
and jon guy is maybe for real.....
i know the email thing is a fake but if you really talked to him a long
time ago for real he might have not lied considering it was Long
ago before they got annoyed...

AVATAR FINALE MOVIE TONIGHT!!!!

Oh yeah, and you're all probably aware but I just wanted to say that there's gonna be an Avatar panel at Comic-Con next Friday. I'm going to that, and if anything regarding the live action film is mentioned, I'll let you guys know.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 19, 2008, 01:58:03 PM
Alright, so I just wanted to ask everyone new here to stop asking questions (like what do you guys know about auditions or something) before reading the whole forum.  ;D Haha, I'm not trying to be mean, but I think I've read that question from 7 different people who have come to this site after me (and I've been on this site for maybe... 10 days).

But welcome to everyone who's new!  ;D ;D ;D

Oh and hellozombie, if you go to the signing the day after, see if you can ask if the movie has been casted yet  :P (or when it is). I doubt they will answer, but who knows?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: gwags33 on July 19, 2008, 02:03:56 PM
yea hellozombie you are very pretty, lol. and yes you did those right, i hear Chinese all the time too. my parents don;t speak it, but my grandparents do lol...and ill be sure to find stuff in philly.

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 19, 2008, 02:50:51 PM
Oh i just found out in Imdb.com that
Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall

Post by: skander on July 19, 2008, 03:13:14 PM
To GotRice: I have never contacted Huvane. I was merely quoting someone else when I made the post regarding:

Edit: Oh, wait, I found this posted on IMDB on February 1 2008, which states that casting has not commenced (around that time).

I did some research myself and managed to contact Kevin Huvane from Creative Artists Agency (CAA) and beleive me when i say it was DIFFICULT!

He did confirm to me that castings HAVE NOT commenced (i'm pretty sure he's telling me the truth), except for some actors which have already been attached. Unfortunately, the main character, AANG, has already been assigned to attached Australian actor, Jonathan Nguyen, so i guess the rumors are true.

I'll try to phone again to ask about the casting information.


It has been confirmed that the e-mail is a fake. Some people called CAA to ask, and others had sketchy experiences with the e-mail. I did state this, however:

Does everyone here realize that Kevin Huvane is an agent for CAA and not a casting director? That's not to say that agents can't become CD's, but I don't think Kevin has any casting credentials under his belt. Just a thought.


And this:

As far as I know, CAA is solely a talent agency, not a casting agency. I don't think they mess with unknown actors, they work with the best.

Ever since you came on this forum you've been nothing but rude. Honestly, if you want to bash us go ahead- just make sure you spell right before you do it. You sound like a complete idiot. We're giving you info about the audition, and if you don't want it leave. No one is making you stay.

Anyway  ;D, I think our best bet is to see what news hellozombie brings back to us.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 19, 2008, 05:29:23 PM
I hope so. :D I did a google search for the three people that may be involved in avatar...I couldn't really find any contact info.  :-\ The only way I could get it is if I signed up for a bunch of mumbo-jumbo; I won't do that for the reason of not knowing the outcome. Sorry. :(

I still haven't gotten a call back from Aibel. I'll call him again sometime in August. :)

hi, i'm new here and just stumbled unto this forum. i was actually looking for some info on the auditions and i'm happy with what i've found here.

i'd like to audition for either katara or azula but i'm not sure if i even look like either.... maybe someone would be nice enough to give me an opinion.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 19, 2008, 06:18:34 PM
Welcome! :D I'd be happy to BTW. :)


go you iamkatara.lol.

Holy, I can't belive the end is so close!
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: gwags33 on July 19, 2008, 06:24:41 PM
the finale is in like 42 minutes!!!! and...i think I'm going to watch it at 11 pm though...i like watching at night....its from 11-1 am...so watch it then, night movies are better...anyways, ill try to find some stuff on this people. one thing i did find out is that Kathleen helped m night director movies like the sixth sense...seems like she has dealt with him before. Ive never heard of her though, maybe this will help us get a hold of her agents.

Stephanie Holbrook, was the casting associate for the village and lady in the water ( more of m night's movies )... this means that were dealing with people who have worked with m night before...we could contact them ( which i don't think will be hard to get a hold of their agents or there people there represented by)...


also!!!............................................



i asked my mom about helping me out, and she told me that my aunt has been working for a Hollywood magazine called "people's magazine". and that she could help me out a lot with connections and finding out if they have already casted or waiting to cast. and just more movie stuff in general. My understanding is that "people's magazine" is a Hollywood gossip magazine, so maybe she can help me...well I'm out, I'm done talking =).... PEACE AND ENJOY THE LAST AVATAR EVER =(!!!!
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: hellozombie on July 19, 2008, 06:26:59 PM
Yes, I will definitely let you guys know of any juicy details. I have a feeling they'll say something like, "Oh, we can't say anything about that yet" if I ask them though. :P But it won't hurt to try of course.

So, what questions did you guys want me to ask exactly? I was thinking I'd ask:

Are the characters for the live action film cast yet?

or

How are things going with the live action film?

IDK, I'm not good at this. XD I just don't want to annoy them or anything.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: As1a on July 19, 2008, 06:30:56 PM
holy gwags thats great! let us know what you find!

also, has anybody tried to contact doug at the vineyard theater? i have the number so if not i can try. also when i looked him up in the white pages another number popped up. maybe his home or cell?

what i want to know iss Where can we send the audition tapes? if we can even do that. what age range etc.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 19, 2008, 06:34:57 PM
ahaha don't worry they wont be annoyed
just be nice and friendly :)
I was just myself when I called Doug and he was very nice. He actually sounded sincere when he said "you're welcome"
so if you know what your going to say and just be yourself you should be fine

and I guess what you could ask is maybe "Hey, I've just been wondering, have you guys casted any characters for the live-action movie" if they say yes then you could ask "which ones" that way if they say they haven't your question will have been short and simple
thats just my thought though :)

I am about 95% sure it said the age range was 13-17 BUT I MAY BE WRONG
I am about 99% sure it started at 13 but I don't know if it ended at 17 or 19
I know for a fact it did not go into the 20s

and yeah I called Doug there twice and he answered so we have info from him :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: As1a on July 19, 2008, 06:39:22 PM
ok cool, i'm just going to call him at the vineyard and ask him if and where could we send the vids.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 19, 2008, 06:41:55 PM
ok :)
that would be useful
his office whenever I called him I always got an answer when I called around 6:15 so yeah
just a little tip

gwags. you know better than this. not the place to post here. and they're making like 3 1 hr. movies remember?

gotRice~ goes the same for you. Try and incorporate that into something on topic.

please edit your post, and make sure you use the modify button next time.


At the end of the show, i can't wait to see it made into movies. I was happy with the finale and loved the last half hour. Aang made the right choice.  :)

why do you keep posting your picture at the end of everything you say. sorry but you dont even really look like her, only the hair. hellozombie looks more like her in the picture than you do
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 19, 2008, 09:19:50 PM
well first off I'm a girl

but I meant that I called him and asked him about casting
he said the main roles were not cast
he said he was casting for the avatar movie
he said you do not need an agent to audition
and he said that more information would come in September

and that was about a week ago
someone just asked if anyone had called Doug at all and I said yeah, I did
but I haven't called about tapes
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 19, 2008, 09:21:00 PM
please dont be rude gwags and like you said....

iamkatara: ill write things where i want...

so IamKatara can post it up whenever she wants and besides its her sig
 :P
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: gwags33 on July 19, 2008, 09:23:37 PM
Yeah, i guess, lol, sorry. but i was just saying, i didn't mean to be rude. I was just saying she doesn't really resemble her...


and okay thanks for explaining.

now for this question: why would m night say he has seen 1,000's of kids, and then his casting director say they haven't been casted yet??? makes no sense!!! XD...i'm going crazy, seriously!!!
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 19, 2008, 09:25:54 PM
I said my personal theory to that a few pages back
actually more like probably 15 pages back
but yes
basically to sum it up I saw another interview with him and he said "these kids are just sitting taking a test in school or sitting at home doing homework and in a few years they will be some of the biggest stars"
so I THINK he means that he has seen a bunch of kids on the street and stuff
and that whoever is in this movie is going to become basically the next harry potter cast
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: gwags33 on July 19, 2008, 09:28:43 PM

It's ok gwags. I jsut think i look the most like her in the cast, so i just had some fun with the pic and made it into a sig. It's ok. you have your opinions. What matters in the end is that we all get to try out, right? ;D


That is odd that he said that. mabye it IS an open audition. that would be crazy. after all this time. ;D lol
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: gwags33 on July 19, 2008, 09:33:46 PM
naww...iamkatara, that wasn't fair of me to say that. I apologize, i shouldn't have said anything. I mean i was raised right, and if i don't have anything nice to say, don;t say it at all. too tell you the truth, you did look the most like her, but hellozombie just has more of her features..the "Asian" features...

but you fit her pretty darn good too.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on July 19, 2008, 09:36:54 PM
hellozombie is a MANIAC.

she fits every part and i love her for it.  :)

i think we all have a chance to audition. i mean, even if we don't get the main parts, we could still all be cast as extras and we'd still all get to be in the movie and go "THAT'S ME!!!" and scream it out in our local movie theater. God i love my life.  :D :D :D

Post by: GotRice on July 19, 2008, 09:37:12 PM
well umm vamptastic i know what interview you where talking about
the one posted on youtube
look under shaymalan interview....
but actually (sorry to be over analystic here) lol...
judging by the times those interviews where posted
the interview video on youtube was
OLDER than the interview that gwags is talking about
so basically judging by the timeline
the interview that gwags is talking about is more
up to date than the interview u
wer talking about vamptastic....
so ya ur quote vamtastic wont really counter
the 1000s kids interview...
I hate being over analystical  :-[

Post by: GotRice on July 19, 2008, 09:39:28 PM
I know rite Iamkatara...
but if all goes well I hope hellozombie could be katara
cause I mean shes so hot.. lol
lol but toph would be good too  ;D
and plus looks like she can act ;D

IM A HELLOZOMBIE FAN!!!

well I don't know with the whole video thing thats just something I was thinking about a little back

but yes, Doug did say that you do not need an agent to audition
he said it MAY help
but he said they are taking and looking at everything

DON"T POSt ANYTHING PERSONAL. TAKE THAT ALL AWAY NOW.



We have nothing to do with the movie, we are just looking around. Contact Doug Aibel if you want to give him that info.


BUT PLEASE TAKE IT DOWN

i know a lot of people who want to be Katara. It'll be hard to stand out, but considering how much you want this, I hope you stand out.  :)

Okay, so last night I was betting on horse races at a track  :P and didn't come until around 12:30. I was jumping in my seat on the way back and telling my dad to go faster, because I could seriously not wait any longer for the finale. AND IT WAS INCREDIBLE  ;D!!! I mean, the lion-turtle part was kind of corny, but everything else was great.

But anyway... what more information could we get from calling Doug Aibel?

Post by: Alana1991 on July 20, 2008, 09:02:49 AM
Related to the finale:

I just read they aren't doing anything else in the review on ASN...what 3-1 hour long movies are you talking about, iamkatara? is there a link? I'm sort of confused. I keep hearing different rumors on this.  ;D

We all want this. Nothing will be accomplished if we all keep saying that we want this. We all have to do something. Sorry if that sounded mean, but we need to stay focused on finding the auditions.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on July 20, 2008, 10:31:58 AM
No you didn't sound mean. Just being real.

Yeah and just a tip I would try and get something a little professional under my belt to help me stand out from the rest of the fans who "really want this." They're gonna be looking for professionals who can lead this trilogy so when you contact them always be professional and try not to sound to much like an extreme fan. I would even feign being impartial about it, even though inside I'm freaking out. lol. What I'm trying to say is "I am Katara" you sound too much like a fan than a professional actor. Again not being rude but trying to help you because alot of the other ppl who audition are going to be just like you.

about calling Doug, I don't think his office is open on Sunday
I'm pretty sure its Mon-Fri from 1-7
so there is not really anything we can do about calling him today

Post by: wingman on July 20, 2008, 12:04:00 PM
I really don't believe the film has been casted yet (no news on imdb). And I'm sure "they" (whoever they are) would give some sort of official statement regarding the cast. It would make sense, because then they wouldn't get annoying phone calls  :P.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 20, 2008, 12:08:33 PM
ahaha I kinda figured
I was just like what!?!
yeah I get it. I make those video's specifically for youtube but yeah
audition videos I wouldn't post on the web I would just send it to Doug when the time comes

Lets just try and keep a positive attitude
happyelectrons is right, it will help to have acting experience, but not just school play wise. I have been to a legit acting camp twice, once in NYC and the other, the same camp but in RI. Things like that will help. So if you do REALLY want the part (for serious not to sound mean) but telling us really...won't help. I mean too bad the casting directors not my dad or anything (that would be amazing)
but yeah. If you do really want it, do out and do something

wingman I agree completely. If they had casted the film, it would have leaked out or IMDb would have posted it
they are very good about updating with information
like with Twilight, basically the second they casted Kristen Stewart she was on the cast list
and yeah, if it can stop audition-wanting people from calling, why not post it?
Title: Re: Auditions

IamKatara who where you talking too?
me?
I was just gonna make a video a preview so people can
judge it and see if I really have a shot...
and anyways if you guys really want to stand out
I dont think years of acting class will really do it
I mean it will help but basically you should just be yourself
and show 1 personality that really is different that you find
in yourself and not in others(well most of them)
so getting acting classes?..i bet lots of kids going in there has
been in an acting classes and thats not really making you
stand out..,
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 20, 2008, 12:59:58 PM
I was just giving an example
but the more they see you have done (not just acting camps)
they will feel more secure giving you the part
if you have no acting experience and totally just wing it you may not be able to do it again
and if you have nothing at all behind your belt then they may think, well
okay
person with some experience in acting, has done some martial arts
over someone who totally just winged it
they both do a great job
who would they pick
the person with more experience because they would know that they can keep it up
it wasn't just a one time thing

your really just sounding like a fan, making you new doesnt mean this will give you katara and wanting it wont give you anything
and did u just say you all just want this last night just cause of the 2 hour movie?
.....
doing something to get info will help rather than just kinda complaining




Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 20, 2008, 01:05:52 PM
actually some kids on the harry potter when they first got casted
didnt have any formal training including i think the guy that plays ron
the girl that played luna said she got it because of her personality and
she just became herself...
if you become yourself that doesnt mean its a 1 time thing lol
and besides probably hundreds of kids have parents that are against and
want their kids not to go to acting so classes... just say goodbye to that?
so become yourself isnt really acting and its not a 1 time thing
 :P
but yes I do understand that more experience in acting gives you more
chance..
but im just giving hope to all the kids who cant go to acting or have
never acted...including me!! cause of whatever reasons out there
that doesnt say we have no chance ;D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 20, 2008, 01:14:31 PM

person with some experience in acting, has done some martial arts
over someone who totally just winged it
they both do a great job
who would they pick?

ok lets say were casting for aang the guy with the experience
looks like him talks like him but has a personality of a person like mai
lol
on the other hand the guy with no experience is more optimistic
more out there, more caring, and also looks like him talks like him
who would you pick
remember acting is not for experience its how the person
relates to the character lol so if people can just relate to their characters
then who knows!!

and remember experiences can be gained personalities are hard to change
lol
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 20, 2008, 01:18:11 PM
nonono I totally get what your saying
but IF there is someone who does just as good of a job and they have some experience they have the upper hand
there are the people that have experience but still suck or just wouldn't be right for the character
but you have to be ready for anything and anyone
but I completely get what you mean and I agree
just if there are two people that do equally as good of a job
Title: Re: Auditions

any more news..lol
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 20, 2008, 01:26:59 PM
I am becoming so impatient haha. I hate always having to speculate about auditions. But...

I feel that if you have some kind of aura about you when auditioning...idk how to describe it. But if I was in charge of casting, I would cast myself haha...But seriously, I would get my instant gut reaction when first seeing the kid- then hear them say their monologue, and then make a decision. But that gut feeling would still be in my head. So I think it's just as much luck as it is talent. (And idk if that makes it more, or less stressful  ;D).
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 20, 2008, 01:30:19 PM
ya thats what im kinda getting at wingman
ok remember kung fu panda if you watched it...
the old turltle master was picking who to be the dragon
warrior he picked a chubby old panda with no experience
rather than the 5 most elite kungfu masters of
all time, he picked him cause he saw something in the
panda not cause of talent lol...
so basically who knows kinda bad example but you get what i mean lol

and wingman the aura your talking about is star quality when you walk
in the room they see that.. lol i remembered it form american idol lol
simon always used to say it...
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 20, 2008, 02:53:46 PM
I'm back guys, and feeling much more better now that I've seen maybe one of the most amazing things ever: Avatar: Sozin's Comet. Now, I'm a bit too lazy to read about 20 pages, so could someone fill me in on the most important things that have happened. This is probably old news for you guys now, but I'm still kind of neutral on Doug Aibel and Shyamalan's agent. The thing is, sometimes Shyamalan has more than one casting director, and to my disapointment, I think Doug Aibel has been casting the secondary adult roles, and someone else has been casting the kids, which links us to him saying "we've seen thousands of kids. I think we may have found the next superstars." I really hope my theory isn't true that'd be terrible. This again puts me down, but still, Sozin's Comet was phenomenal (I know, I say that word a lot. :)).

I now have one more question: Has anybody called Blinding Edge yet.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on July 20, 2008, 02:58:23 PM
No i haven't. I think Doug Aibel is the real deal. he said in his own words the "lead roles" so I doubt it'd be the secondary adult characters.

IamKatara who where you talking too?
me?
I was just gonna make a video a preview so people can
judge it and see if I really have a shot...

This wasn't about you. the person deleted their post. don't worry ;D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 20, 2008, 03:19:27 PM
Doug Aibel said the lead roles?...Okay, didn't know he said that. I thought they were unknown roles. Good to know, thanks! :D

Just one thing though: Although the supposed Shyamalan's agent sounded somewhat unsure, the CAA linked me to a lot of people, and eventually to him. Why would the CAA link me to him if he was a fake. I'm really not trying to discourage you guys, I'm just telling you guys what I think. Hey, I'm getting discouraged too. I need the role of Zuko.

So do you think the CAA are liars? It is a possibility, but wouldn't they get caught by now? Arrgh! So confusing on who to trust! >:(
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 20, 2008, 03:30:19 PM
well first off I'm a girl

but I meant that I called him and asked him about casting
he said the main roles were not cast
he said he was casting for the avatar movie
he said you do not need an agent to audition
and he said that more information would come in September

and that was about a week ago
someone just asked if anyone had called Doug at all and I said yeah, I did
but I haven't called about tapes


Shadowbender to answer your question read the quote, and for the
CAA agent that said they casted already she/he was probably lying
cause you called a person behind the CAA office probably cause
the number that was used is CAA's number not shaymalan's agent's
number

and besides like skander said CAA is a talent agency not a casting agency
and CAA if youve notice works only with A star actors and with the best.
I dont think they'll be looking for unknown actors yet...
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on July 20, 2008, 03:31:34 PM
what wingman was saying with that aura thing. I was reading this auditioning book like a year ago and it was talking about casting and stuff and something it said really stuck with me. It said to walk into the room like you're that person that they are looking for. See the casting director is going to be tired of seeing a bunch of no-talents and things that he doesn't want. You have to walk in with the confidence that you're about to end his search. Like you are the person he's been waiting for all day. If that makes sense. :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 20, 2008, 03:35:05 PM
Yes that makes sense. GotRice, good point. The only thing is though is that I asked if it were Shyamalan's agent and he said "Yes". If he was lying, than, man, he should be fired. All I want is the truth.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 20, 2008, 03:41:39 PM
another things is that shaymalan just got signed to produce
the movie in january 8, 2008 plus he still had "the happening"
movie going on which came out somewhere in june so
theres no way he could've casted before june....
so i don't think they've casted cause its onli been 1 month
and I think I believe casting usually takes a long time
maybe taking up to 3 maybe more so Im really hoping its
in September an it probably is judging by the timeline....
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 20, 2008, 03:43:43 PM
and Shadowbender they probably got annoyed of
the phone calls so they decied to lie that its
over so it would stop it...lol and i think for all companies
they have a person behind the phone
you have to ask if you can speak to shaymalans agent
then theyll put you in hold and you have to wait
its really unlikely you phone them and voila your talking to them already....
i dont think shaymalans agent is a phone person just sitting
there and taking calls...lol
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 20, 2008, 04:05:56 PM
Actually, that's exactly what happened...I asked for Shyamalan's agent, they put me on hold several times, and finally to a young guy that claimed to be his agent. But yeah, this one of the most wanted auditions ever, alongside Harry Potter (and unfortunately we can't audition for that, because they only cast British people). So yeah, they probably want to make everyone think auditions are over and that no more auditions are happening. Shyamalan's probably heard about the hype by now, and that's why he said that at the Licensing Expo 2008. Also, it does seem a bit early to be casting yet. And remember, they're starting to build sets in August, and a month after that would sound about right for auditions. :D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 20, 2008, 04:15:23 PM
OMG you never told that you waited so long and stuff
omg thats bad news what if they really put it on shaymalan's agent?
then he might be telling the truth....
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on July 20, 2008, 04:18:02 PM
I doubt that. I totally doubt that. They WERE probably lying. I've seen it done before, where they tell you it's over just so they don't have to worry about calling. With all the things going on around the happening, he probalby hasn't even had time to breathe. They haven't even finished building sets yet, which is what i would guess from he latest interview. They're still even brainstorming areas to film. They wouldnt have casted this early if they aren't even sure where they're casting yet.  :P
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 20, 2008, 04:24:34 PM
when did he  actually finish the screenplays and scripts?
because if theyre finish then maybe....
whos in charge in hiring everyone paramount right?
Omg im getting paranoid...

ok someone should call CAA again and ask who the
casting director is...
I mean if they say another name we'll try and contact
that person and we'll see who's lying
Doug Aibel or the other person
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on July 20, 2008, 04:38:07 PM
It's Doug Aibel. We already confirmed this. Now we're just going in circles. I think that we need to stop over-analyzing this. News about auditions isn't going to come everyday. We just gotta trust in Aibel and wait. I don't think we need to rehash this every 12 hours.
Title: Re: Auditions

Thankies. I need that.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 20, 2008, 04:44:16 PM
I agree. I think we should just wait till September unless someone gets information then they can just tell us
but I think we are all over analyzing like happyelectrons said and just relax. We don't need to get stressed over stuff that we don't even know is true.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 20, 2008, 04:45:23 PM
happyelectron we actually didn't confirm it were just assuming
its Doug Aibel cause he said he is...but everyone can lie...
so ya its best to find out sooner which one of the two
is lying(cause we actually really havent proven whos lying or whos not)
 rather than missing out on a chance because you waited and
and didnt do anything anymore cause you trusted
on someone that maybe is lying.
but who knows...

and yes I wanna believe and wait that Aibel is really gonna cast
but its better to put out the other rumors out by questioning it
because for all we know Aibel might be lying and not the agent.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: gwags33 on July 20, 2008, 05:32:43 PM
well...first of all, when you "thought" you talked to shyamalan's agent shadowbender, I bet you everything i have, that the person talking to you was not his agent. a person wouldn't just put you on the phone with a professional agent. maybe if you were Adam Sandler. But ya...they wouldn't put you on the phone with him. that is just the most obvious thing ever.


so, avatar is over, and now we have no more avatar. except for the movies. which, i hope we can all audition for...
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 20, 2008, 05:56:50 PM
Maybe gwags, but I think really anyone can talk to a proffesional agent if you do enough research, otherwise he wouldn't really be an agent. Part of an agent's job is to talk and answer anyone's question about the person's doings in the movie business, in this case Shyamalan's doings. So yeah, he wouldn't really be an agent if nobody could ever contact him, only professionals. It's his job to talk to people, including people like us. They don't care if your Adam Sandler, as long as you got some questions. An agent answers questions for people.

No it isn't. their job resides with their client and only their client. their manager talks to others. the agent only talks to the client.

that's why i'm more inclined to believe Aibel instead of this "agent". Aibel is a known casting director, and has casted many of shyamalan's movies. He seems more reliable than this "agent" or M Night's. beside's, if you called CAA, it wouldn't matter. He's not one of their clients. scratch that. he is, but that still wouldn't matter.


No offence, but i think they just wanted to get rid of you.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 20, 2008, 06:01:38 PM
Well then who do you suppose I contacted then? It was someone, and I went through a lot to talk to this guy.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on July 20, 2008, 06:03:18 PM
He might have been a representative of M. Night, but there was no way it was his agent. Besides, the agent wouldn't know about casting. Again, it's his job to find M. Night jobs. nothing more than that.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 20, 2008, 06:07:34 PM
How was it "not his agent". He probably got the wrong information, but that doesn't mean he "wasn't his agent". People make mistakes you know.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on July 20, 2008, 06:09:43 PM
I know that, but i doubt you would get in touch with his agent. again, it might have been a representative, but not his agent. His agent wouldn't know stuff like that. he has other clients and better things to do than know about casting information. I'm not doubting that you talked to someone, but I doubt that it was his actual agent.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 20, 2008, 06:13:12 PM
But still, how do you know I didn't contact his actual agent. I mean, yeah, it seemed a little too easy, but that doesn't mean it couldn't be done.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: gwags33 on July 20, 2008, 06:14:14 PM
ehh, everyone, who cares. we all figured this out already. the cast probably hasn't been chosen, and aibel is probably the casting director. we also figured out some names besides aibel, so i think we have enough people to call and ask information about. plus, like i said, ill ask my aunt to ask some people around. because like I said, she works for people's magazine. I don't know how much that will help us, but it's worth a try, and i got nothing else, so yea...and oh yea, i got philly to look forward too. even though theres like 1 in a 1000000000000000000000 chance ill find something good...=)

AGREED.


hellozombie is a MANIAC.

she fits every part and i love her for it.  :)

i think we all have a chance to audition. i mean, even if we don't get the main parts, we could still all be cast as extras and we'd still all get to be in the movie and go "THAT'S ME!!!" and scream it out in our local movie theater. God i love my life.  :D :D :D

aww iamkatara! I LOVE YOU! :D You were seriously a great help with this whole audition thing. *hugs*
and seriously, I wouldn't mind getting cast as an extra or better yet an extra random bender or something. It would be awesome just to be part of the whole film experience, the main reason being that it's an AVATAR film of course. But main lead roles are most definitely preferable. :P

I know rite Iamkatara...
but if all goes well I hope hellozombie could be katara
cause I mean shes so hot.. lol
lol but toph would be good too  ;D
and plus looks like she can act ;D

IM A HELLOZOMBIE FAN!!!

i agree...hellozombie, sorry to sound weird, but you are seriously very beautiful. I love your asian-ness, and your features...ur eyes are so easy to fall into...how old are ya???14? lol

*blushes* thanks.
I really appreciate the support. :) As far as acting goes, I think it's a lot of fun. But I need to work on it.
Character-wise, my number one choice would be Toph because I personally feel she would be the most interesting and fun to play (she's blind and kicks so much butt!!!). I worry about the whole age thing though. I read somewhere here that the age range to audition is like 13-19 or something? No one in their 20s? I hope that isn't true. I'm not 14, I can tell you that much. :P  I mean, the first film won't come out in another couple years. So the auditioners as of now will definitely be older than their characters by the time it does release, not to mention by the end of the 3rd film. I don't think it hurts to be a little "old" as long as you can look and act the age. And there's numerous examples of this in films, so I'm pretty sure that's obvious.

Trust me, you look 14. So don't worry about that  ;D ;) :)

gwags33
ehh, everyone, who cares. we all figured this out already. the cast probably hasn't been chosen, and aibel is probably the casting director. we also figured out some names besides aibel, so i think we have enough people to call and ask information about. plus, like i said, ill ask my aunt to ask some people around. because like I said, she works for people's magazine. I don't know how much that will help us, but it's worth a try, and i got nothing else, so yea...and oh yea, i got philly to look forward too. even though theres like 1 in a 1000000000000000000000 chance ill find something good...=)

thank you. from your mouth to gods ears.

yes hellozombie lol you actulally look 14 lol
thank god were filipinos lol
Im like 18 but I look like a 11 year old kid....
i hate genetics no facial hair lol
and lol filipino girls look like their still in elementary or high school lol
my 32 year old girl cousin can still go for a kid pass in
Disneyland lol

and as for the CAA agent why not somebody cal them again
and this time ask who was the casting director
if they give us Aibel that means their lying if they give us
someone else find out about the guy
WE ALL BELIEVED THAT THE EMAIL THING WAS REAL BUT IT WAS FAKE
IT ALSO GOES FOR THIS WHOLE AIBEL THING IT COULD
BE REAL IT COULD BE NOT!!
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: hellozombie on July 20, 2008, 06:26:00 PM
oh the wonders of looking younger than your actual age. LOL

but I mean, I was just wondering if they would do anything like prevent us "older" people from auditioning? I'm sure it would be ok right? Sorry, I don't know much about the industry. haha :P
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on July 20, 2008, 06:28:17 PM
If you look the age and sound the part, they'll cast you, no matter what age you are. It'd actually be better because they wouldn't have to worry about child laor laws. You could work longer hours(wheeee :D).
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 20, 2008, 06:29:01 PM
Im sure it would be ok lol
some actors play younger characters in movie
so it would be ok.. lol

GotRice, I've mastered the art of annoying (if you  want to call that stuff by the name :P) the same way...except mine is more with voices than movements. ;D

As you can see avatar is based on a martial arts fighting
its basically not fighting since they dont even get to have a contact except the bending
so it has to look good...
and i never said itll make me an expert I just merely said Ill TRY
and copy the moves to have a basic idea of the form
and I have some knowledge of Bagua and have used it from before but not a master

besides if he didn't want to be referred to by Jr. they wouldn't put it
also if it was his dad that died, then it WOULD just be Michael DiMartino
because it also says his full name is Michael Dante DiMartino

If I audition, it will be for Sokka. So I don't really have to worry about martial arts  ;D.

Gwags, wouldn't it make sense to ask your aunt before you go, so you can get the info when you see her (or remind her if she didn't get it yet). Unless you're seeing her for like a whole week... then just ignore what I just said  :D.
Title: Re: Auditions

actually who you guys gonna audition for?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on July 20, 2008, 09:49:53 PM
i'm going for katara but i was thinkin in my tape to do some monologues with different tones of what I can play and then maybe a couple katara scenes. But mostly monologues to simulate an audition. But I'm gonna ask my acting coach for help this week as to what is the best approach.

*quickly taps GotRice on the head filling him with the knowlege of the voice*

there you go grasshopper, the knowlege is within you now. :D


I'd like to audition mostly for Azula...I just need to learn some martial arts.:).


Welcome Sanhlami!

I think wer'e all pretty confused...September we might (most likely will) recieve some more info.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 20, 2008, 10:29:07 PM
I'm going really for any female role
my main three are Azula, Suki and Toph
Ty Lee would also be fun though
or even Mai
like I said really anyone
I will probably read scenes for a few characters and I guess I'll figure out whichever is best :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 20, 2008, 10:33:07 PM
cool...If I were to choose two others it would be Suki or Katara. Tylee would be pretty fun though. ;D

That's not a bad plan.:)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 20, 2008, 10:35:52 PM
my main are Aang, Sokka, and Zuko

and oh ya if anyone is going in that comic con thing
ask them HAS CASTING STARTED?
ARE LEAD ROLES CASTED?
WHEN ARE CASTINGS?
WHERE IS IT?
WHEN?
AND HOW?
anyone wana add onto that? lol
lol xP :P
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 20, 2008, 10:37:29 PM
Yeah :)
I think if I try reading lines from each it will help me figure out which one fits me best so then I know what the best one for me to try for is
like personally I am more like Toph or Azula, I'm not really as caring as Katara, I can be but its not my strong point :) I'm a little more tough and so are Toph and Azula so I think I would be more natural playing one of them

ahaha quite a list of questions
I totally wish I could go but
1. I live all the way across the country
2. Psh yeah right my parents totally want to pay for me to go there for like a day
3. I'm working at a film studio and I can't really just leave :)

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 20, 2008, 10:45:31 PM
Theres only 14 main roles lol(including Ozai and Iroh)
so basically 12(excluding the maybes)
only 10:
Aang
Katara
Sokka
Toph
Zuko
Azula
Mai
Ty lee
Suki
Yue
Jet(maybe)
Haru(maybe)

I dont think everything will work out for everybody  I am Katara lol
considering theres only this much role not many people will get
what they want....
Title: Re: Auditions

just wondering Im not trying to be racist or anything but would you rather see the entire cast for the movie asian
or mostly main roles caucasian and some asians...
I just cant see a white guy dressed in asian outfit lol looks weird
and Im a white girl lol
I mean have you watched forbidden kingdom lol the white guy with monk outfit
looks soooooo weird  :P
well In my opinion it should be mostly asians playing the main roles and some whites playing secondaries
It would be weird to see a white guy play Aang lol dressed in monk outfit and bald
 :-\ I could see it in my head...doesnt look right... ???
and as bad as I want to hate this Imagine them being played by caucasian
with asian names  :o
I still hope I could be yue even though I want to be toph :'(

You keep sounding like an obsessed fan. I really try not to be mean, but you have to stop saying how great it would be if you get it. We all want it to work out, but I think we need to be a little more realistic. Sorry if that sounded too blunt and mean.

Post by: GotRice on July 21, 2008, 11:26:00 AM
I also get what your saying IToph but Im kinda in the middle lol yes i think a white boy in a monk
outfit looks weird lol but its 4 nations and represents different types of races lol
and beside if a white girl plays a kyoshi warrior i dont think we really gonna notice cause of the make up
so ya Im still kinda on the fence about that...but yes if a white guy plays Zuko
and his father is harsh asian guy lol and his sister is somewhere indian...then im kinda against it
lol(FOR ONLY THAT)family characters should resemble at least each other including ethnicity
lol

Just mainly talking about random stuff. The Avatar Finale, how info on the auditions most likely will be out in September, and, we weren't being racist, how many Asian and White people should be in the film. We've also gotten quite a few new people to the forums. Don't worry, I was gone for a while too. ;)

Welcome back Riz! :D



And that thing about the dedication at the end of Sozin's Comet, it said Dante DiMartino, not Michael DiMartino, or Michael Dante DiMartino. It must have been his father.
Well good luck to you all and i know that the way i have been talking i am just sounding like i am a big fan well i am but being Katara would mean the world to me she or i mean i am just like her i just wish that everything would work out and people get the part that they want and all the people they use should be new.

Well to start off with I'm new so hi everyone!  :D

IToph I understand what your saying about a white monk but you've got to remember that make-up can sometimes work that out!

Which brings me to my question:
I really really want to audition for Kataraand I think that I'd do pretty well if I auditioned for her. Some of the people that I go to school with who watch the show even tell me that I look a lot like her... if only I was tan. I am actually pretty pale and I was just wondering do you think the casting directors wouldn't even consider me based on that factor? Im just curious because I really have no idea. And good luck to all of those on here who are going to audition, Im sure you'll all do great!

yes there is nothing wrong of being an obssesed fan we all are too lol since we want to be in this movie
but I am Katara your actually kinda sounding stuck up like your gonna get Katara's role and that your
just hoping everything works out for you...Im not trying to be mean but Im just warning you
we all have a slim chance and just be realistic since theres a lot of kids wanting to be in this movie too
and Katara is a main role just being like her wont do anything kinda.... its also about ur acting talent
so i would practice it and not just hope evrything will work out cause you have to make it not wish it...

If you are under 18 it is mandatory for them to give you schooling on set. whenever you're not filming they school you. I'm pretty sure it's at least 3 hours a day, usually early in the day.

Hi welcome to the forums avatarlover989

yes I think you get taught by a private tutor but I think its only for highschool classes
I dont think theyll be teaching you college level while working like 17 hours a day lol
and plus It doesnt mean if you audition youll get it(maybe grtz if you do) but
if you dont you can still go to college after then... but if you do make it
I dont think College will fit in a schedule rite now cause youll also be travellin around the world
role an besides your gona be a Superstar if you make it O.o

Well to start off with I'm new so hi everyone!  :D

IToph I understand what your saying about a white monk but you've got to remember that make-up can sometimes work that out!

Which brings me to my question:
I really really want to audition for Katara and I think that I'd do pretty well if I auditioned for her. Some of the people that I go to school with who watch the show even tell me that I look a lot like her... if only I was tan. I am actually pretty pale and I was just wondering do you think the casting directors wouldn't even consider me based on that factor? Im just curious because I really have no idea. And good luck to all of those on here who are going to audition, Im sure you'll all do great!

 ;D

well watebender Aang as a white guy wearing a monk suit and mascara even looks weirder lol

and waterbender its summer you can easily get a tan lol just do something outside lol
maybe they wuld base it about that too I dunno also...

andWelcome to the forums waterbender7
Thanks! Im glad to be here!
Yeah I've tried tanning before and that didnt really work out because I got really burnt but I can always try it again. And yeah I cant even imagine Aang in mascara that would creep me out!

Yeah, let's keep crossed fingers there will be all the info we need about auditions! :D

Oh, and Ben Barnes, the guy who played Prince Caspian in Narnia, said he got a fake tan before filming. So, Waterbender7 skin tone shouldn't be too big of a problem.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 21, 2008, 12:40:21 PM
but also don't forget
(not Katara or Sokka or anyone from the water tribe)
But half the people in that movie are pale looking
and actually to me Aang and Suki and Azula and everyone all look American
the only one that looks kinda Asian to me is Zuko
but maybe its just me
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: IToph on July 21, 2008, 12:56:39 PM
Suki looks like japanese what you talking bout'
and if you make zuko asian the dad has to be asian
and if azula is played by a white girl think of the logic
do white people get born from an asian family I dont think so
and vice versa
and she looks asian too with the eyes what you talking about...
but yes they are pale theyre are some asians like my friends who are
actually pale  :o
and just picture white people wearing asian culture attire lol
it doesnt look good lol
the onli thing we can look good on is the water tribe attires
all other attires is taken from an asian culture society...
it just looks weierd all im saying  :P
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: gwags33 on July 21, 2008, 01:33:57 PM
its a misconception that people think asians are darker and naturally tanned. it can go either way. just asians like the pale look because they say " when your tan, it looks like youve been working in the fields...they are very stubborn and only want fair skin, because onyl peasants work in the field...most asians are really white, but some are also very dark...it depend on the person. my aunt is the whitest woman i think ive ver seen, and shes asian...it doesn't matter, it's your genes that make you what you are...=)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 21, 2008, 01:49:59 PM
yeah...agree.  It's like my mom is part naitve american  but she's really pale due to my grandma's trait, even though her dad wasn't...my dad is 100% Eastern European and he's really dark, and I'm sort of in between. genetics is everything.

But if they do cast an asian Zuko it could lessen my chances for Azula, so I'd probably have a backup role like Suki, which is fine. Azula would be cool though. But like I said and will keep saying they don't have to be exact clones, they just need to fit the part and share some of thier traits. If people want to try out for this movie they should. Yes, certain races may be better to fit different roles, but it's not a crisis.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 21, 2008, 01:52:04 PM
actually no I picture Asians pale
I'm saying from the look of their facial features they look more American to me
and like I said maybe its just me, you don't need to go around bashing my opinion IToph
besides, American's wearing Asian attire does not look that weird

but yeah like Alana1991 said, they are going to cast people who can be the role, if they don't look Asian in an American movie, its not going to matter that much....
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: gwags33 on July 21, 2008, 01:53:53 PM
but...still, they need asians in this film...in based in an asian influence world...look at the houses, the clothes, the names, the chinese martial arts, the culutree...everything is asian...and you can't deny that...
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 21, 2008, 02:00:36 PM
I know, my point is that not everyone has to be Asian. Yes the heavy influence is there, but the Avatar world is, well, a different world, but like our world not everyone has the same ethnic backround. Thus the four nations come in...even then you see pale and dark people among the earth and fire nation...with the exception of the water tribe, they're pretty diverse. Even the Water tribe has Native American influence as well as some Asian and Aztec influence. The fire nation also has some Aztec influence, like the sun warriors. That's what's so cool about the show, they mixed things in there pretty well. :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 21, 2008, 02:08:30 PM
yes I agree to Alana kinda lol
it should have a lil bit of diversity but not entirely asians
but in another point of view in ITophs view
have you ever seen caucasian dressing up in
a anime costume convention lol some looks like
ehh "you just ruined it" and some looks actually good
so that doesnt mean they will all look bad IToph lol
just have faith xD...

GWAGS i mean gary maybe you could go to the vinyard theatre and ask doug aibel in person
lol this is how he looks like
i think...its whats on google and mostly pic popping up

(http://www.playbill.com/images/photos/levine-7gp6dhiw.jpg)

well just a thought since your in NY already and his also in NY
and if he is telling the truth this is what he should look like
and if its different LIES!!!
just a thought....

ok I just checked in youtube he is Douglas Aibel lol
and for the people who said they callled Douglas Aibel
watch this video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0309YgNQqCo
TURN ON THE SPEAKERS HIGH and CONFIRM
THIS IS THE VOICE YOU HEARD ON THE PHONE...
If not then maybe LIES!!lol
you have to wait for Doug to actually talk in the video so wait...

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 21, 2008, 03:08:07 PM
just think 2 or 1 month from now well see this face in actual
real life and he'll be behind the tables while we audition for the
most important day of our lives...hopefully lol  :D
IM SO EXCITED!! Yet scared :-X
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: lizzardman30 on July 21, 2008, 03:39:39 PM
hi. im new to the forum. i was just wondering how sure you guys were that Douglas Aibel was the guy to see for auditions. i have been skimming over a lot of the older posts and am really confused. i found that someone had posted the contact info. for the vineyard theatre thing. and any information at all on whether it will be open auditions, or when the auditions take place would be incredibly helpful.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 21, 2008, 04:02:37 PM
I called Paramount, the ones producing the movie, and they told me they could not tell my Doug's number, but they could tell me he was the one casting for The Last Airbender from M Nigh
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: lizzardman30 on July 21, 2008, 04:09:25 PM
so i have been reading more and u guys seem sure that auditions are in september and in NY. It would be kinda hard for me to get to NY, but i could easily send in a video. I am just not sure what i would put in a video.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: innocence on July 21, 2008, 04:31:09 PM
I'm new (:
It would be cool to audition for the movie, but I have on acting exp. whatsoever xD
But I'll stay here and cheer you guys on  :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 21, 2008, 04:35:36 PM
Well what you would put in a video would probably be you saying some dialouge of the character you audition for. Most of it will probably be that, but you would also probably put your experience in acting, why you want your role, and how you describe your character, or in other words how you define him.

So, welcome to the forums! :D If you get a chance to audition in September (maybe), good luck! ;D

Hi, Inoocence, welcome! You know, some of the best actors didn't have acting experience when they got started, so go for it! ;)

Welcome new recruits! :P

I might end up making a video anyways incase I can't go...I'd LOVE to go to NYC though for auditions. It'd be blast;  like GotRice said it'd be exciting yet terrifying.  I'm in for the rush. :D

hmm... maybe some hispanic people (mexicans mostly) could pull off water bender. the only way a black boy could get it is if he got his hair to grow downwards

*is my problem*

for a black person's hair to grow down, they need either corn rowes, or dreads... but it can't grow down straight.


eskimoes huh? that sounds about right XD dark skin and super heavy coats

i would need to grow my hair really long though to get it to hang down low enough. i always did wonder what i would look like if my hair hung down.

i agree, to an extent. i would love the whole cast to be asian, but i dont think they can find that many good actors in just that race. thats a whole lot of asian people. i mean, what if they have to pick between two actors, one asian and one not, and the one that's not can act better than the asian one? that'd...be hard.

Oh I hope not haha. It's sad because my ancestors aren't from anywhere exotic. Italian and British- funn.  :P I think, if by some miracle I would get the role of Sokka, I could easily get a spray tan or they'd put make-up or something on. Oh and blue contacts.  :P Right?

And I want to say sorry to I am katara because I was sort of out-of-line with my last post. I'm just trying to help you, but I did it the wrong way. What I meant to say was that when you're auditioning, make sure to act like a pro- not a HUGE FAN.

Im trying to ge the part of Katara but fmaily is suffereing finacially so no agent!!

Im trying to learn Tai-Chi or Northern Shaolin!!

Also i'm an actress, who other than school and the annual festival in my town has little experience!

I really hope more information comes out on the auditions!

No, I dont think so..

me and my sister were going to get agents but my family isn't all that great financially. Either way, my parents didnt want that because they were afraid that we would pushed to our limits and crack..

but that was 3 years ago roughly. nowadays my mom is considering letting me learn Martial Arts and letting me act.

i'm not sure. but i know they take some percentage of whatever you make.

would an agent take in a client if they had no acting experience whatsoever?

umm.... maybe, but they might ditch you if you don't get any work soon, after all, since their services are free, they need to make money some how, and the only way they make money, is if you make money.

high schools? well, i just graduated...and you know, funny thing is, the theatre teacher at school lives on the street behind mine. i took theatre class in my 10th year, but i never really participated because the other students were unbearable, really. so, i wanna try something new, somewhere new with new people. if push comes to shove, maybe i'll walk down the street...or call. :)

and anyways I hope they would make it actually open auditions and stuff
I have a feeling it will be since Doug Aibel from vamptastic's quotes
that he stated that we all dont need agents but it will help
and that they will look at everybody so...
open auditions Harry potter style lol maybe..
and hope we can actually send in videos it would be great going in there
and audition but its really nerveracking standing there and them judging you...
sending them videos would take off some pressure lol
I mean its also bad for people who has stage fright or need financial aid lol
i mean if they looking for unknwns give chance to everybody xD ;D

lol...Were all insane! HEHEHEHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

:D


Exactly,GotRice,  and welcome new people! :D

Agents are your business partners to sum it up...they take a percentage, you really don't pay them...if they ask for money it's most likely a scam.


I've looked everywhere for acting jobs (yes, I'll use that term) and really found nothing. My local theatre may be doing the Lion, The witch and the Wardrobe, but auditions for that I don't think are near. I just have to hold my breath for an open call...and hopefully as far as agents go try to get into the modeling agency (I discovered it a about a month back, but I need to make sure it's legit.) in my area.

really off topic but uhh...

maybe theyll make a new season AIR lol
just a thought since Aang can bend energy of people by
removing their bending then maybe he could bend some peoples
energy and make them airbenders lol
and thus reviving his culture and the airbenders

and huh I could see katara and Aangs baby half waterbender and half airbender
xD

so Ive been trying to look for more proofs that doug Aibel is REALLY
the casting director for this movie Ive mostly found bad and good
news to back it up but mostly the good is ruling out(thats good lol)and putting
away some of my questions out...although Im not entirely sure
whether or not the people that claimed they've talked to him
really talked to him...
The probabilty that he is casting for this movie is 94%
hope he is really the real deal...

so Im begging for the people who talked to him to please
watch the following link and confirm if that is the voice
that youve heard from the phone...
http://youtube.com/watch?v=0309YgNQqCo
(you have to wait for him to talk he comes in the midlle of the Video)
this will actually help in proving more that he is really the casting director

I'm about to listen

my friend Caroline is the perfect example
she sounds about 12 on the phone but in person she sounds nothing like that
I also sound about 10 but I'm 14

Hey everyone I am new but I have read posts on this thread and stuff anyway if Doug Aibel is the casting director for The Last Airbender, why is it such great news? Has he stated he will do open calls or anything? Im sorry to say that I haven't gotten much info like the rest of you but im hoping you know more than I do since I started to look into this movie yesterday.
Title: Re: Auditions

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 21, 2008, 10:55:20 PM
welcome to the forums freedomfighters

and it is great news cause we know who the casting director is
and hes gonna give more info in september lol
he hasnt stated its open casting call but he did
state that casting has not commenced and it will probably be
somewhere in fall lol and he did also state he is looking for
anyone so you dont really need experience or agent
so thats really great news...
cause we all may have a shot ;D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 21, 2008, 10:57:31 PM
sanhlami dont send resumes and videos yet cause he hasnt really said anything yet
and we dont even know if thats the auditioning process
so dont annoy him lol
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: FreedomFighters on July 21, 2008, 10:57:51 PM
That is really great news and now im really hoping he is the casting director because im a nobody in the industry and I don't have an agent and I want a role in the movie so the only thing that can go wrong is if I mess up or he isn't the casting director

I'm so lucky to have found this place, so much information.. but I don't think my parents took me seriously when I said I wanted to try out for the movie, LOL.
There were just like, "yeah, that'd be cool" *life went on*
So yeah, as I said before, I'll just be your cheering squad  ;D
It would be a huge dream come true, but.. IDK...

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Sanhlami on July 22, 2008, 12:04:46 AM
Oh man, I really hope its open cast and is in Los Angeles. I can't afford to travel all the way to New York just for a slim chance of being Aang or a element bender.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 22, 2008, 01:46:53 AM
hmm I was looking for a number of ways they might make the
auditioning process but so far no luck...

Im just wondering remember the movie Hairspray they had a huge
open casting call and they had i think a budget of 75 mill...
anyways they held casting in 3 different cities..
so it might be the same for us if they did open calls
so it would not just be NY probably some other places if they did open casting calls(I repeat)...
anyways I was just wondering did some people send in videos for hairspray?
I mean if Doug Aibel actually did open casting calls and if its the same as the Hairspray auditioning process
then we might have a general idea of whats gonna happen
like if we can send videos or not...


Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 22, 2008, 08:17:50 AM
THEY SHOLD CONTINUE AVATAR! :D *sign the petition riz ;D*


I think if they do open calls allow videos and go to the biggest cities in America. Like LA, NYC and Chicago maybe...Houston is also very big so the southern states can have a shot. But reason they wouldn't do that probably becuase it's pricey to travel.  :-\ Videos would be sooo great if they allowed it.


Innocence, Don't give up yet...try bringing it up again and if they do the same reaction explain your serious about it.  :)

Hairspray had a budget of 75 mill lol and isnt avatar like 250 mill or more
so I guess they wont have a problem of the travel its the people who have to audition
that has to worry about it not them....I hope they do videos but I really wanna
go to an open audition because they see who you are and they can get to know you...
and that will help if you want to be spotted...and if your there in person
you can answer their questions if they have any or if they say your doing it wrong
you can change it...cause you may never know if your doing it wrong in the video lol...
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 22, 2008, 12:03:52 PM
Ive been checking how the cast of harry potter auditioned
for their roles... the only guy I know who got a role through video is rupert grint who made a video
rapping on why he should get the role...
the rest auditioned in open castings... emma watson took 8 auditions to land the
role of hermione...So im guessing we have to do that kinda process too...
evanna lynch(luna lovegood) said she flew form ireland to Uk and tried out...
and out of 15000 girls only 400 made it...so Im guessing that the 8 audition thing
happened also to her...
So if it is open castings It will take months and a few times auditioning for the roles
crap I only got a week if i go to NY....
Hope it really is Video!!!

"We just found the cast for the entire movie here are their names!" Because if something like that happened I would seriously be mad. Im really hoping that its open auditions though so all of us can try out. I think it would be just a good experience to be there at the auditions if anything.

Yeah, it was said they wanted "undiscovered talent", so what other way than an open audition.

Awesome Alana! :D

That would be a great idea, only that would go against the part of the name "The Last Airbender". Did you guys here though that Mike and Bryan are trying to make a T.V. series about the past Avatars? It's really cool, but they don't know if they can do it. :(

To be honest, I am against the idea of the whole cast being Asian. The Avatar world is made up of four nations, which I guess would mean four different races. Now, Asian people in the movie isn't bad at all, but the whole cast? Come on. I mean here's an example: Jong Jong, Aang's first firebending teacher, looks Asian, while Azula looks Caucasian. Now, it would be great if they cast both of the races. You see what I mean. I'm seriously not trying to be racist. They can really do alot of things with casting, for example the vampire Leraunt in the Twilight movie is black, when they never described him being black in the book.

Another thing, when I talked to Aibel on the phone, he sounded a bit different than he did when he was on the YouTube video, but remember, I said, "a bit". And like somebody said before, people can sound very different when on the phone.

And yes, Wingman, I love the many pages.

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 22, 2008, 04:26:44 PM
And I also have some more evidence that Aibel is probably doing casting. Remember a while back when I e-mailed Mike Lemon, well he said there wasn't much on it now, similiar to what Aibel said.

Another thing, Mike Lemon said to check the Hollywood Reporter for info on auditions. The Hollywood Reporter is a website, right?

well first off I'm a girl

but I meant that I called him and asked him about casting
he said the main roles were not cast
he said he was casting for the avatar movie
he said you do not need an agent to audition
and he said that more information would come in September

and that was about a week ago
someone just asked if anyone had called Doug at all and I said yeah, I did
but I haven't called about tapes


hmm ya vamptastic when you called did u ask specifically that if they are
making the auditions somewhere in fall?...
because "he said the main roles were not cast" it can simply
mean they havent casted yet but they are doing it right now....
and that the information about the people that are casted will be out somewhere in Spetember...
I mean did he say his casting for the Avatar movie right now or somewhere in September?
Title: Re: Auditions

sorry shadowbender I might have to go with gary(gwags) on this one
lol they should have at least the same ethnicities for the family lol cause
a white guy cant be born from a full asian family...
and if you make one character caucasian the rest of the family should be too
but In my opinion Zuko should be really asian lol...
and besides ozai by far looks asian...and ursa too and zuko, Iroh has an asian beard
lol so if azula were to be white shes an orphan xD
but you may never know a white girl can always wear make up too gwags
and some caucasian girls look asian  ;D
and some are half-half even better lol

actually still goes to my family ethnicty thing lol
Zuko's mom came from Avatar Roku's line of family
so if Ursa is white then that must make her also an orphan
cause Roku totally looks asian lol but yes I do agree
Ursa if you look closely looks white...
but u have to know that that is a cartoon If you were
to make it in real life some traits has to be kept real lol

Post by: riz_fo_shiz on July 22, 2008, 05:57:34 PM
in my opinion, they organized the nations by ethnicity... like this

fire nation: asian

earth nation: hispanic or whiteISH

water tribe: eskimo (inca) or black

air nomads: white

that makes a good variety of races to be in the movie, and that makes the most sense to me, cuz the water tribe CERTAINLY isn't asian, though some of the characters dont fit the stereotype... like tylee... certainly not asian lookin, but mei looks straight from confucious *terrible spelling* era! or toph... she's from the "hispanic" earth kingdom, but she and her family look white...
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Waterbender7 on July 22, 2008, 06:02:58 PM
In my opinion ethnicity shouldn't really matter. As long as you look enough like the character and are good at acting then it shouldnt really be a problem based on ethnicity.

a caucasian lady half bald and being called yang chen lol
and plus with all the caucasian dudes wearing monk uniforms
that including Aang lol...its like your making fun of the culture or something

I think it's about time we drop the "Cast a Certain Race Debate" becuase other than the fact people are starting to get offended; if it's an open call they will choose who they want and what we want is sort of irrelevant to their casting. Just aim for the role you want and lets leave it at that.

that's a possibility... a good possibility, but don't forget, it's the casting director's choice in the end to have open or closed, whether we petition or not.

I know that its his choice but this is to let him know how many kids really wanna be  part of this so it will give him second thoughts
so a petition can definetly change his mind or not lol

yeah, it could give him at 100% change of thought and it could cause him to do an open call, it could work!

Post by: shadowbender on July 22, 2008, 08:55:53 PM
Yeah, a petition could either work or cause the person to do the exact opposite. So, okay, I'm thinking that one more person should call Aibel for the last time till September. I feel like calling him too much will turn him against us. Plus, he seemed nice when I talked to him, and I don't want to feel like a burden...So yeah, whoever calls him next should ask all the necessary questions and then maybe that should be it until September. What do you guys think?

And about the whole race thing, I've noticed that every nation has a portion of EVERY RACE in it. I've even noticed a white kid in the Water Tribe.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: FreedomFighters on July 22, 2008, 09:22:50 PM
I agree with shadowbender, one more person should call and ask necessary questions like
1) Has casting for all roles begun yet? If not when?
2) Will there be open auditions for roles?
3) If there are open auditions are there any locations in mind?

Just simple questions that will get us the important information everyone here is waiting to here, don't call him just yet, if anyone has more questions that I missed then add it and we can make a final list of questions for the person that will call Doug Aibel.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 22, 2008, 09:34:44 PM
You pretty much got everything covered FreedomFighters! :D There was just one more question, what was up with Shyamalan's agent? Was he really giving us the wrong information? If so, why?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 22, 2008, 11:02:25 PM
Ok to whoever is going to call...I vote vamptastic...lol
you have to ask:

2) Will there be open auditions for roles?
3) If there are open auditions are there any locations in mind?
4)Shaymalan's agent said that casting is done is he telling us the truth? why would he lie?
5)are videos allowed if its open casting calls?

think of more questions to ask him before anyone calls him
so that way everything will be answered once and for all
and it wont annoy him anymore....

So think of more questions guys!! :o

did it start already or not... if this guy portraying greg baldwin is fake
im seriously getting frustrated with all the liars claiming their the real deal...

Im really getting annoyed

and vamptastic you said you did that 14 day trial on imdbpro...
did they mention anything about auditions or any news that people got
callbacks because 1 guy(glory19) in this forum quoted

I read on imdb.com that auditions were held in New York City in December and there have been callbacks for Aang, Katara, Sokka and Yue! I wonder if they actually have someone for real! I'm trying to figure out when the next auditions are, but nothing on that yet. And also that only kids with agents were allowed to audition, so they weren't open auditions. Mr. Baldwin, how is the best way to get or find an agent? Thanks and take care everyone!
http://distanthorizons.proboards31.com/index.cgi?board=avgeneral&action=display&thread=8419&page=23

your the only person I know that had an Imdbpro for 14 days so did you see
anything like what this person said on imdbpro...

god someone call Doug Aibel for real this people are annoying >:(
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: FreedomFighters on July 22, 2008, 11:57:26 PM
Idk about asking Doug Aibel why Shaymalan's agent would lie, after all it isn't that important if auditions haven't started.

and GotRice, im starting to get frustrated with the auditions too, why can't the casting director (maybe Aibel) just say auditions have/have not started and will start ______ or the roles of Aang, Katara, and Sokka are not going to be open for auditions or something informative. Im sure you guys would be just as devastated as I would be if they announced that auditions happened in January or something like that.

Idk about asking Doug Aibel why Shaymalan's agent would lie, after all it isn't that important if auditions haven't started.


It is important cause we dont know even if audition has started or not...the agent said its already over and the main roles were casted
so that is REALLY IMPORTANT!! so we need to ask Douglas Aibel if it really is over...

and thats what Im afraid of everyone is believing him as Greg Baldwin and maybe it is him
and its also frustrating cause why would a guy lie about him being Greg Baldwin in a forum
I  mean whats he gaining A couple of questions? I mean thats a bit sad and pathethic
just to lie that your somebody else to answer questions?...
God I mean why The F*** would you lie to answer some friggin questions
thats just so stupid...I mean the only thing thats coming out is more lies
and people are asking questions and they are being told more lies...
I mean whats the "portrayer's" point of saying that his greg balwin? just to answer some friggin questions and fan mail?
*sorry for the language* >:(

the movie just for couple of months of fame and glory...
but pretending to be someone just to answer theyre questions is beyond
stupidity I mean why would you lie being Greg Baldwin to answer fan mail...
its so pathetic...
its only bringing people down and misinforming them...
I mean Im really getting frustrated with this people...
GOD A MESSAGE TO ALL OF YOU AVATAR LIARS OUT THERE SERIOUSLY GET A  F****** LIFE!!!

Post by: lizzardman30 on July 23, 2008, 12:20:25 AM
okay not sure that i totally understand whats going on, but if these people have been cast i can guarantee that none of us would know. confidentiality is guarded religiously. if a person cast for a role goes blabbing there are severe consequences and can include losing ur role. something is only really gonna spill after everything is final and right before the public finds out anyway. for that many people to blab this early on seems like a hoax or something. this early in development those people probably wouldnt still have their role. plus i just hope that im right for all our sakes. last year i was on the reality tv show endurance fiji and my contract had like a .5 million dollar fine for releasing any info. prior to being shown on television. and that was kinda  a small time tv show not some huge 3 part movie.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: FreedomFighters on July 23, 2008, 12:30:22 AM
I think you might have mis-read my post, One of the questions already asks if casting has begun for all roles, actaully edit that and make it any roles, anyway if Aibel says that casting has not begun at all then we don't need to ask about Shaymalan's agent because Aibel already said no. Anyway I agree with the whole Baldwin thing you were talking about but there are some people that are really bored or don't have anything to do and yea it seems stupid because it is but it could be an imposter anyway lets hope that whoever calls Aibel gets informative answers and most importantly Aibel says that open auditions will take place in the fall (Im hearing November). After all if the roles of Aang, Sokka, and Katara are under negotiations or something than it isn't that bad considering its 3 out of 30+ roles and then you have extras and Jonathan Nguyen, Ether Brent, Noah Hunt, Eleana Fox, and Chee Keong who are they? I know Nguyen, Brent, and Fox but who are Hunt and Keong supposedly playing?
And to lizzardman30 I hope your right too
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 23, 2008, 12:37:49 AM
well first off I'm a girl

but I meant that I called him and asked him about casting
he said the main roles were not cast
he said he was casting for the avatar movie
he said you do not need an agent to audition
and he said that more information would come in September

and that was about a week ago
someone just asked if anyone had called Doug at all and I said yeah, I did
but I haven't called about tapes


Ok Freedom lol we never had information about Doug Aibel saying that Castings has not commenced
(please feel free to prove me wrong on this one lol) we only know he said that the main roles WERE NOT CAST
so that can simply mean that they are casting but they dont have the cast yet...
please if you can find any info in wheter he said it hasnt commenced please post it up...

Haha ok GotRice, I can't prove you wrong because you are right and btw so you know I didn't mean to prove you wrong in the first place or anything like that, as for the whole "they didn't decide a cast but they are casting thing" I agree with you on that one because his response can be taken in that way but lets hope all the crew is doing right now is like building the set and casting hasn't started but back to the people you listed...what roles are associated to who? I know nguyen, brent, and fox but not the other two, actually never heard there names come up

WHOA. I just read through the last several pages and they kind of...irritated me.
I don't mean to go back to all the racism stuff again, but I just wanted to give my own thoughts. Hope you guys don't mind?

As a Filipino, I just wanted to clear some things up. Yes, Filipinos are Asian due to our continental location (Southeast ASIA) and some aspects of our culture are clearly asian. But we also have other cultural influences such as Spanish, American, Chinese, etc. That's why many Filipinos come in all sorts of skin colors and appearances. We are not Mexican, but we share a similar tie in that we both have Spanish influences, with Mexico obviously having more of that influence.

And another thing, as we all know, Avatar is clearly an Asian influenced series and it is modeled after certain ethnic groups. However, that shouldn't limit other people of different ethnicities to audition. I personally think that this film will be a great opportunity for Asians, given that it IS an Asian influenced world and that I am myself, an Asian. But that doesn't mean people should go around saying "Only Asians should be in this movie! No [insert ethnicity here] people!" (and perhaps this wasn't directly said on here, but I've heard it so many times before). How do you think that'll make other people feel? It's ignorant, and just plain mean. I say, as long as you have the general look of the character and can ACT the part, then you're good to go. Keep in mind that we are all Avatar fans here going for the same thing: we all want to be in this movie. We should support one another and stop being so darn racist. :P It'll make things easier for everyone.

OK.


Anyways...to get back on topic...the Avatar panel at Comic-Con is in TWO MORE DAYS. I'm going to try my best to ask Mike and Bryan personally about the status of the film and cast (and maybe even audition information? haha doubt it) Hope I can get any information at all. *crosses fingers* I'll let you guys know right away if I do.

Shyamalan made the following announcement at the Licensing International Expo 2008 on June 10th, 2008 in New York City: "Casting has begun and we've seen thousands of kids. I believe we've found the next superstars."

We've come so far in this forum, and I'm sure you wouldn't even know whom Doug Aibel is if you didn't have us. So really, you should stop being so negative and start helping us out by maybe saying, What could I do? But no... you continue to mock us- and that is going to make us work harder?

if your going to be like that get out of the forum
NO ONE HERE LIKES YOU
YOUR NOT FUNNY AND YOUR NOT COOL
AND BY PUTTING ALL OF US DOWN THAT JUST MAKES YOU EVEN STUPIDER
because we are actually getting somewhere on this information
so I suggest that if you want to stay here
SHUT THE F*** UP
if anyone is being a "faggot", its you

anyways before I lose anymore brain cells talking to this idiot
I seriously think we should just call Aibel and ask him the questions, try to get info at comic-con
and I guess if casting has already been finished or whatever then maybe we can try for the other movies, Shyamalan said he may not do the other two so he can rest so if thats the case they wouldn't cast all three books yet

also about that IMDb Pro thing, I saw NOTHING like that on there, and I looked AT EVERY SINGLE PART of that page for the last airbender
I clicked links after links and all the subpages and there was no list of casting anywhere except the rumored ones on the message boards

thats why we should find this out if castings has started cause you may never know
what a month can do...

and SKUIisHOT seriously SHUT THE F*** UP U F****** IDIOT
I know it must hurt being a retard in real life but please stay
away from this forum before everyone catches your stupidity
and you calling us "faggots"? have you seen yourself in the mirror lately?
it also must hurt to look the same way as you cause its so pathetic
making a name Skui is Hot wtf kinda name is Skui....
seriously your getting annoying if you didnt bother using this
forum you would have never gotten the information you have right now...

anyways before I blow my brains out welcome citypigeon
and for this lets just hope he is lying but judging by the time of the interview june 10
he was still in "the happening" project dont directors take time off a bit?

I don't have the link but I think it was on IMdb that they were going to start working on the set in august, idk if directors work on the set than look for a cast because than it would make sense since they would work on the set in August and then in September they would "release more audition information". Thats the only logical way I can think about it, that is if thats how directors go about making their movie.

I just called Doug and he said that casting was taking place in the fall but he didn't know where yet and they wont know until around September.
they haven't started casting yet so all those rumors about possible roles I don't think are true.
He said if we have anymore questions then we should contact Paramount.
I took me so long to find all this :)
Actually though, before I called him I called Paramount because on the IMDBpro page it said they were the company to contact and they said Heery Casting was also casting but I called them and they said they were not doing anything with it at the moment.


Omg to put things to rest lol wow Ive read 19 pages for this....
read this its really starting in fall
so about shaymalan stating that they casted I dont really know lol
maybe he said that to put the hype down a bit...
but it is Douglas Aibel casting cause paramount said so and they have more power in hiring people
than shaymalan does i think...

but it wont hurt asking those questions for more clarification...
so vamptastic work your magic lol.... ;D

SKUIisHOT wow you have got to be one of the most
ungrateful sons of b****** out there because this people
have come so far to get everyone real information about this movie
and I would have never gotten any info if it wasnt for this forum
and by judging by your time in here you wouldnt have got the same
info aswell

Did your mother drop you when you were a baby and resulted
in producing the most retarded baby ever? and yes it is sad Skui is
probably your name isnt it, thinking your hot doesnt make you so...
i mean its like saying crap looks good and it doesnt...
So take your lil' ugli ass out from this forum and dont ever use the things in here
DUMBASS!!!

If I could see you now face to face I would kick your ass P****
you'll probably lose too from a girl  ;D

Well, I was wondering...if I try to make a petition, should it be after SDCC and talking to Aibel again?  That way we can have better info to put in the open statement...speaking of that, any input/suggestions for that would be nice. :)

probably. it would just be much easier and more precise, considering(hopefully) we'd of found out more info. Good idea though. :)

Has any real information come up? Or are you guys still just pissing and moaning about your problems?

To answer your question, yes we did. From what i've seen and what Aibel has said, the auditions might actually be open. Someone called him I think, and he said that not having an agent wouldn't be a problem, so the only other alternative is an open audition.

On that note, if it is, the places they'll probably have it is NYC, LA/Hollywood, and Chicago.

I left out Houston because of southern accents(unless they're looking for the swamp benders. ;D )

Well I'm sure southerners could talk in a north-eastern accent, if they are trained or something. Who knows  ??? ? Because I've only been as west as Wisconsin ( :-\), and they had Canadian accents. That's not too far from Chicago is what I'm getting at. But oh well... Right now we're just speculating- anything could happen! ( ;D and  :()

But I think no matter what they'd have auditions in LA and NYC. Which is good for me cause I live like an hour and a half from NYC.  ;D

lol...wisconsinites do sound canadian. XD Where I live a lot of people do too, and they think I have the accent. XD.



Anyone can change thier accent though. :P


Lucky, Either way wherever auditions are for me it's gonna be a long drive. One of the many times I wish I never moved. ::)

1-7 on sunday i think. i'm calling him today, and hopefully we'll get some answers. We got to stop calling him though. We don't want him to get discouraged from giving us information.

Post by: shadowbender on July 23, 2008, 03:11:38 PM
I don't think I've ever seen such a freakin' idiot like SKUIisHOT before. Well, moving on from that absolute retard's disruption. That thing with Greg Baldwin a couple pages back, I think it was a huge misunderstanding. I think that maybe Greg Baldwin was joking or the kid he was talking to was joking. It sounded like he was just joking about the irony since he plays Iroh. And that thing with M. Night Shyamalan, I think he just said that to create hype about "The Last Airbender." Hopefully that's true.

Vamptasticavatar, I see that you're being voted to call, if so good luck! :D Maybe we should call sometime later this week though. Oh, and your signature is awesome. The Dark Knight rocks.

Gary, good luck man.  ;) Hope you can visit the Vineyard Theatre. ;D

Whoa guys...I was just reading where you can submit questions for the cast of "The Spirit" movie when they're at the Comic Con panel. Maybe there's something like that for the "Avatar" panel somewhere... ???

Ok good luck! I hope you get something out of calling him! Report back if you do!

Anyways I know that they will more than likely have auditions in LA and NYC but I, really really hoping that they have auditions in Chicago considering its only about 2 hours away from where I live (I live in the middle of nowhere, its hardly ever on any map!) Do you all think that there is a possibility of the auditions being in Detroit because thats even closer to me!
Oh and Im really glad to be a part of this forum now, mostly all of you seem so nice!

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: gwags33 on July 23, 2008, 03:27:59 PM
okay, if i was going to see him, HOPEFULLY! what should i ask?

1. when are auditions?
2. has the main roles been taken?
3. who are these people who claim to have the part?
4. when are auditions if there are some?


anything else???


and are you sure that i can just go in and talk to him, isnt he some high hollywood guy???
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: innocence on July 23, 2008, 03:29:42 PM
well, you're some high forum questioner getting info for us, you're important to us, too!
I bet we'd all appreciate your courage (since you're showing second thoughts & such)
And just remember, he's just a person, like everyone else.. except he's rich and has partial power over the movie every kid in the world wants to audition for  ;)
Ok to whoever is going to call
you have to ask:

1) Has casting for all main roles begun yet? If not when?
2) Will there be open auditions for roles?
3) If there are open auditions are there any locations in mind?
4)Shaymalan's agent said that casting is done is he telling us the truth? why would he lie?
5)are videos allowed if its open casting calls?
6)Some people are claiming that they have auditioned already for the movie is that true? did some auditions happen a while ago?
7)does Jonathan Nguyen, Ether Brent, Noah Hunt, Eleana Fox, and Chee Keong one of those people if not are they lying?
8)Shaymalan recently stated in an interview that casting has begun?is it true? if not why would he say it started?

think of more questions to ask him before anyone calls him
so that way everything will be answered once and for all
and it wont annoy him anymore....



Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 23, 2008, 03:30:55 PM
I dont think his some high hollywood thing hes only a
casting director lol...
anyways your already close there and it would really be helpful
having a word from the casting director himself in person
If i live somewhere near NY i would have gone there myself but
Im like in the other side of Canada lol
so it doesnt hurt to try lol...
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: riz_fo_shiz on July 23, 2008, 03:32:48 PM
umm... you have when are auditions twice  ;D

oh, and maybe ask where are auditions.. like just LA or major cities
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 23, 2008, 03:33:09 PM

Well I'm sure first you will have to talk to an associate. Then maybe they'll bring you to him if by some miracle he isn't busy. And I don't think you should ask the third question (because if he says casting hasn't begun yet- then they're just lying).  I think you should just ask when, and where the auditions are and for which roles.

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: lizzardman30 on July 23, 2008, 03:36:56 PM
#1 and 4 are the same question. i think u mean where are auditions? its worth a try, but you may not be able to see him.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: FreedomFighters on July 23, 2008, 03:37:53 PM
1,2,3,5,9 I think are the main questions that need to be asked
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 23, 2008, 03:39:20 PM
You may never know out of some miracle maybe
Doug Aibel will be kind enough to see him
like I said doesnt hurt to try especially if it
will get us some info for real...
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: innocence on July 23, 2008, 03:39:39 PM
And:
10) Does Ether Brent have a girlfriend?
LOL
just kidding  ;D

*Just ask 4, he would probably tell you the info for 1. If not, then ask 1
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: lizzardman30 on July 23, 2008, 03:40:02 PM
wow this is quite a rush of comments. definitely ask him if it is open casting.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 23, 2008, 03:41:50 PM
1,2,3,5,9 I think are the main questions that need to be asked

Im thinking question 4 and 8 should be important too because its an interview about the Director saying
that casting has begun and Doug Aibel said its not
so it should be important too
it will also clarify on whos lying or not...
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: FreedomFighters on July 23, 2008, 03:44:21 PM
I thought #1 and 4 were the same question asking if auditions have started so if Aibel responds and says no than we know who is lying
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 23, 2008, 03:47:41 PM
lol I think that question is saying
why would shaymalans agent lie about casting
has already started if your saying its not?

and number 8 is
like who has more power Shaymalan or Doug lol
so I would intend on believing Shaymalan but then again
Doug is the Casting director so...
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: lizzardman30 on July 23, 2008, 03:50:41 PM
doug is the casting director but m. night will have a big say in it. i mean its his movie.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: FreedomFighters on July 23, 2008, 03:50:53 PM
OH I get it now, I thought #4 was saying Shaymalans agent said casting has begun, is that true? Like your asking if auditions have started which is the same as #1, oh ok I got confused
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: innocence on July 23, 2008, 03:54:47 PM
Because he could answer like: "it's a true to an extent because only the parts for [so and so] have been cast..", ya digg?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 23, 2008, 03:58:48 PM
Because he could answer like: "it's a true to an extent because only the parts for [so and so] have been cast.."

ya what I meant  ;D
and also it could clarify on who is
lying the agent or Doug Aibel lol cause Im still kinda questioning both sides
As much as I want to believe Aibel fully Im still questioning to who
did shadowbender really talked to in CAA is it really his agent? so Im a bit unsure...
I mean anyone can lie right lol
tis includes Aibel too lol
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: innocence on July 23, 2008, 04:04:49 PM
Non-accusingly...I wish people would stop lying just because they look like they have "connections". I mean really, it's kind of pathetic. Also, that and if we knew who was lying or not... such devious people..  :P

i know right their just really getting in the way...
I mean if they casted why not just say so...so we wont really bother them
if not great when is it? so we wont have to call them all the time if we are unsure...
but no all we got is 'more info will come in september" and some are like "oooh
Im attached to a role yay or omg sorry we already casted for the role"
I mean that raises more questions up rather than puting down the hype...

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 23, 2008, 05:35:58 PM
I really think that if gary asks too many questions the people will get annoyed. I'm sure they have no association with the people who are saying they have the roles. Rumors happen for movie casts all the time. Besides, if he says casting won't start until the fall, then we know those people were lying. Just ask when, where, and how auditions are...because that's all the information a professional would need.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Waterbender7 on July 23, 2008, 05:36:53 PM
I dont think he would lie, what would he gain out of lying? People do tend to lie about things like Oh I got the part of so and so but thats just them talking, I dont think Shyamalan has confirmed anything yet and hes pretty much in charge of the movie. Like GotRice said, why dont they just give us more information other than more info will come in September!

And yes cookies can pretty much help everything!
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: gwags33 on July 23, 2008, 05:39:51 PM
are you guys sure, that i can even get in, because i dont want to have my mom drive and sit through all the traffic, trying to get into the city, for them too say, no hes in a meeting, or no hes gone...you know...so maybe i should call and ask, if it would be a possibility to see him sunday? yes or no?

Actually in a recent interview Shaymalan did state castings has started and theyve seen a thousand kids but Douglas Aibel
did say its not started so Im really confused about that...

but wingman this also goes in your post too Shaymalan did state that casting has commenced so for all we know those rumors may be
true...
like i said anyone can lie that includes Aibel too

and gwags I dont think you'll really get in and talk to him but there is a small chance...you should call them first and try to arrange a meeting if you can...
but if you cant do all of those its alright some people will call anyways...
but just having him talk in person would be great and really knowing that its him is making us believe more its the truth...
but if you cant its ok lol...

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 23, 2008, 05:50:20 PM
I know, so confusing! But I think Shyamalan's agent just said what Shyamalan said at the Licensing Expo: "Casting has begun and we've seen thousands of kids. I think we've found the next superstars"(It hurts me to say that). So being that he heard Shyamalan say that, he says it too. So, he probably got the wrong idea, and he wasn't lying. Or Shyamalan told him to say that. Who knows.

What's weird though is that when I asked him if he was Shyamalan's agent he was like "Uh...yeah", and sounded very unsure of himself throughout the whole conversation.

All those questions sound good, but if you go into conversation with him, it may lead you to not ask some of the questions because his answers were kind of self-explanatory. But try to ask all the questions (Maybe you should right them down :-\.) Best of luck to you Gary! ;) Yeah, I would call first too, and see if you can arrange a meeting with him.

Yeah I saw that interview and it is pretty much confusing but maybe he just said that to throw people for a loop. I dunno why he would say that if the casting hasnt started so I guess we will just have to "wait until September" or wait until more people get information to truly know. And yeah that does include Douglas Aibel as well if he is also lying about there being any of the cast yet.

And Gary I would call first if I were you, it wouldnt hurt if you did! The worst they can say is that he's busy or something.

Great scene I agree.

I was thinking maybe Vamptastic should call first, ask all the questions we want, and maybe they'll all be answered, and Gary wouldn't have to get a meeting with him. But then again, an actual conversation would be better, being that you might get more info.

Lol! I love it thats a great scene too! Is that where they are going to the library? Sorry Im drawing a blank  ::)

Edit: Oh wait! No its from the episode The Chase (the one where Toph and Katara get into a "completely calm" fight!) lol Doesnt Sokka say something like "!‌ I?ve never not slept before! What if I fall asleep now and something happens‌ And something always happens!"

i'm a lil sad that katara and zuko never happened >.< although not surprised.

ANYhoooo..

back on topic O.O

I plan on calling Doug tomorrow, anything besides where there vids should be sent to, do you guys want me to ask him?

 :D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: As1a on July 23, 2008, 08:01:51 PM
also, some food for thought; perhaps studying his past films will give us some tips as too how to make our audition video, and help us understand him a little better.


good luck everyone~!
Title: Re: Auditions

if your calling tomorrow could you ask him if a fan could come in and talk to him???
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on July 23, 2008, 08:14:24 PM
hey guys. haven't been on in a while. Lot's of posts since my last visit. That SKUIishot guy is a doosh. I just don't get why he would keep coming back if we're all so lame. I guess that's what gets him off, whatever.

Anyway, I've been attending an acting class this week and I've realized something about acting. It's not as easy as some of you might think it is. I've been having alot of fun with it but for those of you who have never gotten in front of ppl and basically bared your vulnerability to a group of ppl, auditions are definitely going to be hard for you. I would advise to all who will hear to get some type of experience going, whether it be in front of your family, at your next school play, theatre class whatever. We all need to practice this amazing craft. After starting that class I realize that I may be as good as I think I am but it all means nothing if the only place I can deliver is by myself or in front of a camera and put it on youtube. I realize now that I may not be as ready as I think I am if I get a chance to audition and I wish I had started this process years ago. I have a lot of growing to do as an actress. Nevertheless, I'll still go for the Last Airbender auditions in September but I'm definetly going to grow as much as I can professionally in the next few months. I hope you all heed my post. lol.

And also I think for that question thing 10 might be to much. He might get pissed about that. But I have a feeling that most of them are just going to be "wait till September" answers.

Post by: shadowbender on July 23, 2008, 09:42:56 PM
Yeah, I watched it...very awkward...but funny!

So two people are calling him tomorrow, alright, but do we just want one person to ask all the questions? I thought Vamptasticavatar was calling him sometime soon? As1a, that's a good question of where videos should be sent, but maybe we should first ask him how the auditioning process will be done, and if we even do send in videos.

Innocence thanks for the website! :D I loved the pics! ;D I'll try and ge one soon.

Well I'll be back tomorrow, so until then! ;)

sry, but why exactly are we under the impression that just anyone can try out?

well, if they casting director is holding open auditions, then anyone can try out, but if they are closed, i think u need to have an agent to be ok to audition.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Sanhlami on July 23, 2008, 10:42:40 PM
Because M. Night Shamamalamala said they wanted unknown people and they haven't said anything specific about casting until september, and we at this forum are just hoping that it is open casting. Don't take our hope away, thats all we have  :'(
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: huntgrav on July 23, 2008, 10:46:46 PM
^ lol no way i didnt mean it like that

I'm a pretty good actor and i rly wanted to try out, but i wasn't going to get my hopes up if this was just a "what if" thing.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: lizzardman30 on July 23, 2008, 10:53:56 PM
hey guys, a good way to practice acting is to go into a store, walk up to a stranger, and act totally different from your normal self. walk different, talk different, and keep ur act consistent. it gets u used to playing different parts, gets u used to preforming in front of a lot of strange people, and its just good for a laugh.

also just an experiment. next time ur in a store that has gift wrap. challenge random people to duels. it is hilarious and could also help with ur acting.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Sanhlami on July 23, 2008, 10:57:16 PM
Good idea, I'll go into a store with a ski mask and a bebe gun and ACT like if everything is free. We'll have a bunch of laughs from that and I'll be a shoe in for an avatar role!  :D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: lizzardman30 on July 23, 2008, 11:26:14 PM
u might be a shoe in for the prison version. haha  yeah dont take it that far. but it is interesting to see other peoples reactions and how u will hold up. if ur scared to do it in person prank call some people and just act like a random person who needs something. but again dont take it to far.

Another fun thing is to do different voices when sales people call. It's useful as well as fun, becuase every no and then they will stop calling for a while. *muhahahahaha!*

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on July 24, 2008, 05:14:28 PM
Try something like: Would it be possible to come in and talk to Mr.Aibel on so and so day? I would just come out and ask it. And if they ask the purpose say something like "I would like to talk to him about his career" or something. I would just pretend I'm writing an article about him for my neighborhood newsletter or something. Idk. Don't be nervous though, I heard he's a really nice guy.

Oh and happy birthday riz!!
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 24, 2008, 06:10:40 PM
That would work, but I think he'd get mad once he finds out you're lying. I'd just say you're an aspiring actor and would like to have an interview or something like that... I'm not sure really
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on July 24, 2008, 06:12:09 PM
Hey, I called Aibel(which i promised I would), but he wasn't there. I called at like 6:15 EST. I'll try again tomorrow if I can.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 24, 2008, 06:14:24 PM
Riz, happy birthday man! :D :D :D

Gary, just say "Hi, is there any way I can arrange a meeting with Mr. Douglas Aibel sometime soon?" If they request a purpose just say "Casting purposes". Good luck! ;) That stinks iamkatara, we'll just have to call tomorrow.

Alana I love that video! ;D

Have you guys seen Avatar Stupidity? Classic! Here's the link:

Hey, welcome back! :D

Yeah, we have posted a lot! ;D

By the way, I just read this really old interview with this kid who was in Shyamalan's "The Village", and he said he went to an open audition in Deleware! Could that mean The Last Airbender auditions are open? :o :o :o This gives me more hope!!! :D :D :D

Hmm, Deleware, not one of those huge cities, that might mean that the auditions will be all over! :D

Guys, more great news! I just found this great website you can go to. Seriously, check it out!

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: babyloutattoo on July 24, 2008, 07:42:07 PM
Uh, I tried skimming.. But then my brain blanked out. BUT I did see a few things.. Like some racist-like comments against Mexicans.. Oh boy, that one REALLY caught my eye. I'm Mexican. 100% by heritage (though I do imagine there is Spanish and Aztec somewhere back, but not close enough to really be considered). BACK OFF! YOU'RE JUST JEALOUS OF OUR SUPER COOL SPANISH SPEAKING NESS! .. And I caught bits of the whole skuishot (or something of the sort) deal.. Man, what an arse. And the whole look alikes thing that I didn't see before.

So about the last bit.. HELLOZOMBIE, YOU ARE A BEAST! Like, you could put on an Avatar play on your own and play all the characters! Gawd!
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 24, 2008, 08:15:04 PM
Yeah, I think skuiishot is finally gone. About time! He was always like that on the forums. Yeah, now we're past the racist thing. And now we have A LOT more people on. It's nice to know that so many people are passionate enough to try and find info on auditions. So yeah, welcome back!

that was pretty good :D:D
but yeah
well it seems like we have 2 people calling and one person possibly going in for an "interview"
I'm so used to doing interviews now, I'm working on two documentaries for a TV station so I have been talking to SO many people
I never realized how hard it is to think of questions and crap
then I have to vlog the video
jesus that takes FOREVER
my bad
off topic once more :)

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 24, 2008, 10:36:06 PM
yeah :D I got a paid internship at a local TV station and we are making two documentaries for some cable channel

I WAS but I don't really know what happened to that
I guess other people wanted to contact him :)

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 24, 2008, 10:40:36 PM
I hope so
some of the people we have been contacting seem kind of uncanny
so this should get us some legit info :)

ahaha me?
if so thanks! :D Dark Knight is my love, I just saw it for a third time tonight :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: riz_fo_shiz on July 24, 2008, 10:42:17 PM
wait... did i hear tv interview ???

O_o dark knight 3 times? wow... i haven't even seen it once...

from the phone calls to Aibel, we keep getting the same info, so i think its legit, and true. i think that gary's and iamkatara's calls should be the last ones before we annoy him too much.

Post by: kuromi on July 25, 2008, 02:08:02 AM
Ahm, hi everyone.
Could someone please help me out? :/
I really wanted to audition for Toph, but I'm starting to think it's too late..

I noticed a lot of people on here are saying they've been calling companies and what not, and have "agents" and such..

I live in California, and I'm just trying to figure out how or where to audition if I possibly can.. I don't have an agent, nor would I have a clue of who to call to figure this out. I just thought I'd have a shot at this character, after Night said he was looking for "undiscovered" kids.

Oh, thank you.
^^;
I haven't been in all too many plays, but the thing is, I really think I could pull off Toph, I've never really found a character more like myself. Hearing about the movie got me really excited..
I hope they come to LA x_x New York is so far away..

I may sound stupid for asking this, but..um... who is Doug Aibel? o_o;
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 25, 2008, 02:18:07 AM
He is supposedly the casting director for this movie(we hope lol)

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 25, 2008, 02:24:26 AM
well if you google him he works in vineyard theater in NY lol
it also has a site so just look up vineyard theater in google

anyways some people are calling him tomorrow
were trying to limit how many people are calling him cause
it might get him annoyed and not tell us any info...
because a lot is actually calling him so please dont call him
some people are gonna(I hope) provide more info tomorrow
but they are actually providing...as you can see as to how many pages we have in
this forum  ;D
Title: Re: Auditions

I know! And the fact that there are people willing to help!We're like a great big family now! Seriously, I thought that people would be like "back off, b*tch, I'M going to be Katara/Yue/Suki/Toph/Azula/etc etc, but instead, we're supporting and helping each other. Ahh, I love how most Avatar fans are kind =)

 ;D

also, yeah I recognize your animation :) someone said it before but it was like 10 pages back
its when Azula was following "team avatar" (:D) in that freak machine thing and so they couldn't get any sleep
it was something like
Sokka: Oh no, the sun is rising. We?ve been up all night with no sleep.
Aang: Sokka, we?ll be okay.
Sokka: Are you sure?! I?ve never not slept before! What if I fall asleep and something happens?! And something always happens!

Post by: thejohngalt on July 25, 2008, 09:07:41 AM
Ask if their are open auditions for "all characters," when the auditions take place, where they take place, and how to apply or join the auditions.

That would be me who posted 10 pages back! lol. It was in the 2nd season the episode was titled "The Chase."

So how many people are calling now? We really dont want to annoy him because so far it seems that like 5 different people are calling and that could proably get on ones nerves when 5 different people call wanting the same information, Im just saying.

 ;D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 25, 2008, 10:49:39 AM
Gary, just ask if you could do an interview. I say you just tell him the truth, and if he says no you can't come then be like...Well can I ask you my questions over the phone? (I guess). Then just ask when, where, and how auditions are taking place...Oh and if anything has been casted.

I think that's all we need... right  ???
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: thejohngalt on July 25, 2008, 11:03:21 AM
ya, if there is five people, he is going to be annoyed...
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on July 25, 2008, 11:08:24 AM
You wouldn't find his number. He probably made it private(because he didn't want people calling him) I'm going to call the theater again today around 3. (Hopefully) he'll pick up.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 25, 2008, 12:03:49 PM
I know this is video is of topic
but its really amazing...
makes me want the part of Aang even more  :'(
or Sokka or Zuko  :'(

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9cocx7Srk0

the music is awesome i hope they have a trailer like this for the movie...
does anyone here auctually live in NY because wouldent it be easier to find his home number in the phone book? or just drop by his office at the theater he works at?

and elle where have you been in this past post we are planning on talking to him in person but we gotta do it professionally
and not just drop in lol gwags is near NY but we gotta check if he can do an interview so he doesnt waste time and gas lol

I can definitely feel you on that. I'm horrible on the phone, if he answers though it should be cool. He has a reputation for being a nice guy, which I am inclined to believe, just check out the story behind his theatre.

Hey guys wow i have watching you for a long time! And i think you guys are all so cute! SO i am friends with a guy in the band incubus and i asked him if he could get any infomation for me so as soon as he does i will let you know! And for gwags33 dont be scared just be your self.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 25, 2008, 01:12:27 PM
welcome. :D And that's great, thanks.  ;D Just anything that can help should be tried.

Wish you luck, Gary...:D



GotRice, that is a cool trailer...I've seen it before, but I watched it again. :D It's awesome. I know what you mean about it making you want the part more. That girl who makes those videos is amzing at it.


(oh, I added the youtube Alladin guy to my subscription.XD)

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: yhmhmily on July 25, 2008, 01:26:57 PM
so you guys are all kinda younger right? like 13, 14 ,15
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: yhmhmily on July 25, 2008, 01:35:34 PM
Just cuz i am 19 and i wonder if i am to old to audition but i look younger. its so funny i got into avatar when i was babysitting and i just fell in love with the whole gang and i got my boy frind into it and we rented every single episode! SO i can wait for this movie to come out and i would love to be apart of it! Is any one taking marshal arts for this movie cuz i am so i can be so prepaired i think it will really help.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 25, 2008, 01:41:39 PM
I think we're all mixed ages aren't we? But maybe all in are are teens. By the way welcome, and thanks for trying to get info. We need all the help we can get! :D

GotRice, I've seen that trailer before and yeah, it is AWESOME. It inspires me even more to be apart of the "Avatar" universe.

Gary, good luck with the call. About twenty more minutes right now. Don't be nervous, man. I've called him before, he's a nice guy. You'll do fine! ;)

Yhmhmily, I last year I actually took Northern Praying Mantis Style Kung Fu, and Northern Style is what firebenders use, which is good because I wish to acquire the role of Zuko. ;D So yeah, Martial Arts would probably help for preparing to be in this film. Just curious, who do you wanna audition for?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 25, 2008, 02:43:23 PM
I think we're all teens (hopefully, unless one of you is a 40 something year old  :o...XD...j/k :p).

Well, martial arts would help probably...I really need to take classes, even if i don't get a role it's just something great to know and (most likely) fun to do.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 25, 2008, 02:45:20 PM
I think there's one 12 year old on here... I just can't remember who it is, but oh well.

Gary what did he say? (I feel like I'm the guy who tells everyone to stay on task  ;D.)

hi! i am new to this post but i have been reading it for the last few days, i absolutly love avatar and cant wait for the movie!...any new information about the auditions (if they didn't already happen) would be greatly appreciated!
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: yhmhmily on July 25, 2008, 03:30:09 PM
I want to audition for suki! She is so cool and i think i could play her well.  ;D . So ya what about everyone else? DOes anyone want to be suki too?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: kuromi on July 25, 2008, 04:06:44 PM
Hi again everyone ^^

I'm 13, but I act much more mature than a 13 year old. XD;

I'm just seeking information, I live in California with just my mother, I've been in about 8 performances, but I don't have an agent or any special connections.

Toph is my favorite character, I think I look and act a lot like her. Compared to all the other characters, she really isn't all that dramatic, which is why I think I could pull her off. I haven't really noticed too many people saying they wanted to try out for Toph, but I'm sure there are hundreds if not thousands of girls out there..

I hear you guys are restraining from calling this Doug Aibel guy so you don't annoy him. So when would be a good time to call him, and what should I tell my mother to say anyways? If he works in New York, I'm not sure if that would work out too well cause I live in California..
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: gwags33 on July 25, 2008, 04:29:38 PM
ive been calling doug since like 2, every hour, and hes not there...has anyone else got in touch with him???
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: thejohngalt on July 25, 2008, 05:36:35 PM
I wonder if Doug has already gotten enough phonecalls, and told his "secretary" to say he is not there to all people except those who he has bussiness with...

It is strange that there still has been no announcement about casting, for ex. when George Lucas was casting for Star Wars he atleast said something, so I wonder if the auditions have not been started.

However, there is the possibility of casting being done in other countries, for ex. if the rumors are true about Aang being casted (don't know his name) as an Australian, and Sokka (is it Ether Brent??) as a Greek, then the other large roles will also be done likewise.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: thejohngalt on July 25, 2008, 05:38:04 PM
Also, thank you Gary for taking your time out to call him, hopefully you will be able to reach him finally.  :)

And kuromi, if you want to try for Toph, I don't think they will begin casting till 2-3 months after editing on the first movie is done.

Post by: kuromi on July 25, 2008, 05:56:55 PM
True, she did come later in the series..
It sure would be helpful if they had a movie info page or something. =/
You never know when they might pre-cast or something.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: thejohngalt on July 25, 2008, 05:58:52 PM
Well these forums can equal that of a movie info page, its just annoying that there is no great way to contact Night or Doug...or anyone really...
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: kuromi on July 25, 2008, 06:00:45 PM
Yeah. Everyone here seems to be nice and helpful to each other, I'm really glad I came across this place in time. Plus it'd be cool to meet the future stars of the movie. XD

Random question.. And by random, I mean REALLY random..! What happens after the casting? Will we keep this board up? I think we should! That way, in case one of us does get one of the parts, we can ask about how things are going!
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Sanhlami on July 25, 2008, 06:27:25 PM
Theres going to be three Avatar movies so until all the movies are done which is like 6 years then this forum will be up.

I hope so. ::)

I want to audition for suki! She is so cool and i think i could play her well.  ;D . So ya what about everyone else? DOes anyone want to be suki too?


Sort of...I want to be Azula more, but if she isn't going to be casted for the first movie (she's at the very end of book 1, so IDK), I'm gonna try to attend the call for Suki. If I don't get Suki, then Azula for the next movie. ;D



This forum should stay active....very helpful and fun. ;D

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: kuromi on July 25, 2008, 06:50:53 PM
Geez, I'm gonna be 15 by the time the movie actually comes out. I might actually be too old to play Toph xD

And I like Azula too. Second favorite character. [= I'd like to try for Toph more, but if not, then I'd try for Azula maybe.

I just got a little information on youtube, not sure if it's true yet, but someone said that casting doesn't start till November, and auditions havent even started yet. I'll try to get more information from this person.

Anyway, so how many plays have you guys been in? [I've only been in a few plays and a few dances, so I'm trying to see if I really don't stand a chance XD]

When I was little I was in 3 dance performances.
In 4th grade I was in the Hobbit as a minor character..
Then I got to be in School House Rock as a lead singing role.
Then I was in Grease as a dancer.
In 6th grade I got to be in Dirty Dan meets Pecos Bill as a majorish character.
Then I was in Hospital as a minor character..
I wanted to be in Alice in Wonderland this year but that idea just kinda faded away =/

Post by: NinjaBlank on July 25, 2008, 07:49:45 PM
Oh my GOD!!!! I read all 85 pages of this topic :D

I have concluded with these statements:
-Not necessary for any requirement of an AGENT, but it looks better that way.
-Auditions are held in NYC. (But may also be held in Philadelphia and Los Angeles as well...?)
-Casting has not yet started-Casting Director (???)
-Casting has already started-Agent (???)
-Doug Aibel is a very busy man with a very limited schedule :\

I have also concluded with these questions:
-Do you still need to send a video and have it approved of BEFORE you attend any auditions?
-When & where are the auditions going to take place???

XD Thanks, I've seen a few people on here who have done way more though. I suppose there are kids who have been in lots of plays or even commercials. My dream career is to be an animator, but I do have fun with acting.

Sure, hold on, I'll post the link.

GotRice, your sig. is FUNNY! :D

my resume is a bit pathetic...it's pretty much nothing...as far as acting goes: just a few mini-plays, two years of high school drama...I'd do local work but there's nothing really happening right now, I'm just gonna look into the modeling thing. :-\


Really, Kuromi? I plan to go to school for animation/cartooning just in case acting won't work out (hopefully it will)...what kind of animation are you looking into? :)
Title: Re: Auditions

lol Alana i know its funny xD

and you guys are going for animation too lol
im gonna take 3d animation in the college Im going too...
xD
hope acting works out.. :-[
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: kuromi on July 25, 2008, 08:16:34 PM
I want to someday create an anime-ish type show, basically just like Avatar. I have characters and a storyline already. Next month I start High School, so I'm deffinitely going to get majorly into art and hopefully drama. Voice acting looks pretty fun too, but I'm more of one to create characters than play them.

I just really have a lot of confidence that I could play Toph. Out of all the characters, I think she is the most realistic. Deffinitely my favorite. I just hope I get a chance to audition, even that would be a dream come true. Getting the part would be an absolute miracle.

Oh my GOD!!!! I read all 85 pages of this topic :D

I have concluded with these statements:
-Not necessary for any requirement of an AGENT, but it looks better that way.
-Auditions are held in NYC. (But may also be held in Philadelphia and Los Angeles as well...?)
-Casting has not yet started-Casting Director (???)
-Casting has already started-Agent (???)
-Doug Aibel is a very busy man with a very limited schedule :\

I have also concluded with these questions:
-Do you still need to send a video and have it approved of BEFORE you attend any auditions?
-When & where are the auditions going to take place???

NinjaBlank

wow rly :o

that must have taken FOREVER! welcome!  we don't have much info on the actual auditions. the when and where are still unknown, same for if you have to send in a video. if i were you, i would be workin on a video just in case.

@gotrice: AWESOME PIC IN YOUR SIG!!!  :D :D :D


@kuromi: really? that's what i wanted to do for a while. create a hit anime show. I LOVE TO DRAW! and i like to give my characters their own personality and give them a little story ^^ good luck in your show may i ask what its about?

Wow, I feel lame.. I was in Bugsy Malone as part of the chorus.. in 8th grade.. that was 2 years ago. SO LAME. That's it. Besides Swing Choir in 8th and 9th grade.. I was kicked out of it last year because I kept missing practice (<ranting>due to sickness! That old hag just wouldn't listen to me! And she saw that I was missing on those days!</ranting>). I tried out for musical last year.. But they didn't let me in due to the whole "missing practice" fiasco. I have a bit of a resume.. For singing. And even then, it's only minimal things like "solo in Swing Choir." Gaaahh, I have no chance!

Post by: riz_fo_shiz on July 25, 2008, 08:24:09 PM
hey, you know what i found weird... i haven't seen anybody wanting to audition for Tylee, Mei, or Haru. or some of the other semi-main roles XD did anybody else notice that?
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: kuromi on July 25, 2008, 08:28:25 PM
Wow, looks like there are a lot of animation fans on here xD

Kay, I'll give you guys a little scoop.

Here's the main character. (http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d7/kitten94/Art/kuromicg.png)

[The name on it is my screenname on Gaia]

I named her after Kuromi [A Sanrio Character] but now I realise if I plan on making a show I'm gonna have to change her name for sure XD;

She lives with her younger sister and her mother. Their father mysteriously left when they were both very little.
Her mother despises both of her children because of their resemblance to their father. She just feeds them and doesn't really talk to them.

Kuromi has a special ability to do funky card tricks, and the story basically goes on to where she discovers her magician abilites, and at the end, her father is her enemy and she becomes a wizard. That sums it up in a few sentances I suppose. XD

don't feel bad, i don't have much of a resume either...

Music: Chorus 4th-7th grade

Acting:
-Mulan: the musical- Mushu (yay me!)
-Charlie Brown- Lynus
-The Music Man- Oliver Hix (major singing role)
-After Ever Happily- Rumplestiltskin (spelling ???)
-High School Musical- Jason
-Lewis & Clark (musical)- Napolean Bonepart

i think that might be it... but other than that, ive done swimming for a couple years, and soccer for 9 years. basketball for 3 years...... that's all for me...

you guys have better resumes than you'd think. ;)

Kuromi: I LOVE THAT! you draw well. :D I'd love to do something similar and make my own show, do voices for it, etc...and like i said earlier only if acting doesn't work out for some reason. heck, even if acting works out I'd still do it. lol. XD

(Do any of you have deviantart?)





Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: kuromi on July 25, 2008, 08:58:30 PM
I do have a deviantart, but I haven't uploaded any pictures too recently cause it's been kinda weird. XD;

http://mewyuki.deviantart.com/

The cool thing is thinking about having the show come to life with voice actors and music and everything, and just like Avatar, if your show becomes popular enough, it could be made into a movie. =]

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 25, 2008, 09:01:58 PM
I added you to my watch. :)


exactly. :D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: kuromi on July 25, 2008, 09:08:40 PM
Yay ^^
I personally think Avatar is better than any anime I've seen, just the concept of it all blows water on other shows. Naruto to me is just complicated and over popular. Avatar has a great mythic storyline and it's easy to understand the whole thing.

But anyway, out of curiosity, who's trying for what part? =]
As you all know I'm deffinitely hoping to audition for Toph. ^^;
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Alana1991 on July 25, 2008, 09:14:06 PM
Agreed. Avatar is the best I've seen. I've tried watching Naruto...that's something I obviously need to see from the beginning.lol. The other ones are on a bit late but I catch them here and there. But Avatar out of many shows has the best plot and animation IMO...the voices also fit the characters perfectly.


And to answer your next question: Azula mainly.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: riz_fo_shiz on July 25, 2008, 09:22:53 PM
*pokes siggie... pokes pic*

i think maybe sokka XD

my top 3 are
1. sokka
2. haru
3. jet

sokka is just awesome, with haru, i can do some bending, and jet... aside from dieing... he's pretty cool
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: kuromi on July 25, 2008, 09:24:25 PM
Ah XD
It's kinda cool just to think we could all actually have a chance at ending up on a set together.
As soon as my mom went to the salon I even practiced a little praying mantis style kung fu xD; [Toph's fighting style]
I think I get the movements of the types of bending now.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 25, 2008, 09:49:06 PM
long time no talk :)
not really its been like 10 hours
but anyways

wow a lot of new people
we are becoming quite the popular forum here  :o

kuromi, to answer your question I'm mainly going for Azula or Suki, Toph is another possibility :) and I also think Tylee would be really fun :D
so yeah those are my four main choices

OFF TOPIC:
if any of you are looking for something to do I just had a movie marathon with some friends today (we wound up watching only 3 1/2 movies though because two of them were over 2 1/2 hours and our pizza took an hour to get here :P) but ANYWAYS
all the ones we watched were amazing, so if anyone need entertainment
1. Brokeback Mountain
2. V for Vendetta
3. 10 Things I Hate About You (best movie ever)
4. Penelope
we were going to watch like 4 more but we ran out of time  :-\

Wow xD I almost decided to take tae kwon do, too bad I didn't. I'm not the kind of person who's easily disciplined.
I keep hearing rumor that some 17 or 18 year old Australian guy got the part of Aang already though..

I keep hearing rumor that some 17 or 18 year old Australian guy got the part of Aang already though..

I really hope not- cause that would just be ridiculous. And I'd go for Sokka or Jet  ;D.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: kuromi on July 25, 2008, 10:35:49 PM
Seriously. If that guy really did get the part already, that'd be so unfair. Number one I think it's a bit early to be deciding the role of Aang, number two that guy is wayyy too old D:
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Sanhlami on July 25, 2008, 10:52:13 PM
Yah I heard that rumor as well. I doubt it though cause its just a rumor and that guy is to old and tall. It doesn't really matter, I doubt I will even get the part cause I have no experience in acting. I'll be glad just to be an extra. Although I have to say that I look like Aang with his hair, like my picture.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: FreedomFighters on July 25, 2008, 11:17:30 PM
really the only role I want is Jet, I would settle for anything really but if I could pick it would be him over Sokka and Aang. I think I can pull off his personality more than Aangs or Sokkas, so wbu you guys? what roles are you aiming for? (of course hoping for open auditions in November)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: kuromi on July 25, 2008, 11:46:24 PM
Yeah, it'd still be fun to be an extra on set even. I'm still hoping we all can get the chance to audition.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: lizzardman30 on July 25, 2008, 11:48:01 PM

Me and NinjaBlank are in the same boat. Just read the whole thread, and I have to love the fact that there are people who are as giddy about this film as I am. I'm hoping for open auditions (who isn't?), as it would at least give the higher-ups on this project a chance to discover untapped talent.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: kuromi on July 26, 2008, 12:10:42 AM
Sweet. =]
I don't think I've ever been so excited for a movie in my life, never have I even thought about auditioning. But right now I feel like I have to try, something is making me feel like I could pull this off. I just wish we could get a litle more information about auditioning..
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Sanhlami on July 26, 2008, 12:15:59 AM
I never thought I would be trying for a movie audition in my life, but the storyline and the universe of Avatar: The Last Airbender is so intriguing and so likable that I'm willing to try for this.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: kuromi on July 26, 2008, 12:26:01 AM
I feel exactly the same way. It's such an awesome and different world from ours we'd like to be a part of.
I may not have an agent, I may just be some stupid kid who's kidding herself, but if I get the chance to, you're damn straight that I'm gonna audition.

I didn't even think about the aftermath until now. If we did get the parts, I suppose we'd become rich and famous child stars. That thought hadn't even crossed my mind until this very second.

Post by: babyloutattoo on July 26, 2008, 12:27:35 AM
Oh.. I don't remember who said it (I only read the posts, not the user names), but yeah.. I've been thinking about trying for Mei. I think I can pull off the whole bored attitude as I have experience with being bored for extremely long periods of time XD. About the whole behaving well deal.. Heh, I don't think I could pull that off :P

So here's my list now:
1. Suki
2. Azula
3. Mei
4. [Maybe, possibly, unsurely, perhaps] Toph
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: kuromi on July 26, 2008, 01:14:50 AM
In your picture there I think you kinda look like Azula or Suki. ^^
I don't really have many Toph-like photos, but if I styled my hair correctly it'd look pretty good I bet.

http://a785.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/65/l_ec4b1f7eee9db0fdf6dc37ef2fc3c750.jpg

My hair is black but my brown roots are coming back in x_x must redye them..
and I wear my hair in my face on a daily basis. xD
And I'm pretty sarcastic and cocky. [=

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Waterbender7 on July 26, 2008, 11:05:34 AM
^Yeah your sig does look pretty cool!

Anyways Im going for Katara. I just think that shes a great character and I could portray her well.

If for some reason I cant get her, I would love to be Ty Lee because Im kind of a cheerful happy go lucky person like her! Too bad I have no gymnastic skills what so ever though!

And I'm gonna need another hair cut soon (which means I'll get to see my hairdresser who used to have an agent)! So maybe I'll have an agent sometime soon (crossing fingers)!

welcome. :)


I just watched the panel thing...as far as I know there was only movie question asked, and the question was sort of asking if the movie was gonna take place after book three and the answer was obviously "It's going to be book 1" *sigh* (they said it looks accurate though.)...I hope hellozombie still may be able to get some questions in.  :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: thejohngalt on July 26, 2008, 06:08:51 PM
This is somewhat random, but for anyone who needs an agent, an idea is to get someone you trust, such as a parent. It may not be so high caliber, but its better than nothing.

Also, the auditions will probally be the 3 cities of LA, Chicago, and NYC. However, Night does love Philly, so idk.

and, kuromi, hopefully we don't turn into the wacko rich peoples, *cough lindsy lohan, jamie lynn spears cough*

Welcome all new people, and as I do for everyone else, I wish you luck in the auditions. ;)

Well, for those of you who don't know, I wish to acquire the role of Zuko. His character is so complex and lost...It really would be an honor to play him. Plus, I love his style of martial arts. :) Yes, being apart of the "Avatar" universe would be spectacular.

Whoa, Kuromi, this is weird, a while ago I had a story just like yours in mind with the whole magician thing. Weird. :o I think if you ever create that story into a T.V. series it will be great! :D And yes, you could pull off  a Toph. ;)

Vamptasticavatar, that idea with a movie party, I actually just had one with some friends. So many coincidences! :o :o :o We watched the "Harry Potter" movies, another series I love.

Gary, that's awesome that your Aunt is gonna try and help us! :D Doesn't People Magazine know practically everything that goes on in Hollywood? This is really great! ;D I'm very confident that we will find auditions. :D

Lion Turtles are real? Seriously? That is sweet! I loved that one Lion Turtle in the finale.

Hello shadowbender and thejohngalt, and yes I was wondering about the auditions but I would have no idea who to go as...

I am a five and a half foot tall sixteen year old vegetarian Filipino half-breed born in Texas currently residing in Virginia.


you look like Jet xD or maybe Zuko
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 26, 2008, 09:15:13 PM
Yeah, I would say you should go for Jet. ;)

Yeah, we'll hopefully find more info on auditions soon, there is supposed to be more info coming in September, we're pretty sure. So, I guess we'll have to wait until then.

One of the more interesting characters to cast must be Jet. He's so devious, kniving, and sly. You have to get the absolute PERFECT person to get it. If it isn't played well, the performance isn't done right, it could be a disaster. But if someone went in and nailed it, they could create a great character in American cinema.

I'm Tiffany and I'm new to the boards. I love Avatar and I'm totally excited about the movie. I'm just totally confused about the casting like everyone else. I just skimmed through the last 90 pages and i'm so glad i found this forum. My preference for characters i would like to play would be:

1. Azula
2. ty lee
3. mai
4. and maybe katara?

Oh.. I don't remember who said it (I only read the posts, not the user names), but yeah.. I've been thinking about trying for Mei. I think I can pull off the whole bored attitude as I have experience with being bored for extremely long periods of time XD. About the whole behaving well deal.. Heh, I don't think I could pull that off :P

So here's my list now:
1. Suki
2. Azula
3. Mei
4. [Maybe, possibly, unsurely, perhaps] Toph

actually babyloutattoo in your sig pic
I can actually see you play tylee you kinda look bubbly and happy in that pic lol
and I can also see you tie your hair O.o lol


Heh, about Ty Lee.. Yes, my personality is actually quite like her. I was very seriously considering trying for her.. And then I remembered that I have no skills when it comes to acrobatics. And I'm so inflexible that I swear one of my legs will snap off if I even try to do the splits XDD.

And did you mean dye? Yep, I dye my hair. Your see the natural color around the blonde and orange ish ness. But it's been brown, red, and an odd maroon/magenta looking color (dye gone awry X|. Well, it wasn't that bad, actually. It wasn't horribly bright, the color was only kinda like a.. flat looking red, you know?).

@babyloutattoo: i think it would be fun to play a person like mei... so "blah" and emo all the time XD

Indeedy! I don't get to act like that much. Only in the summer when I'm moping about my room for lack of outside communication.. But I'll have to admit, I've been doing a lot less of that since I've joined this board! =)

Ok, now for postage.

Okay, where do you people get your acting foundation from?
Classes? Books? Don't have yet?


I got most of my skills from classes and shows, as well as practicing on my own with just monologues. I'm pretty sure that there are some books out there that would give you a lot of information and help you with all kinds of auditions. ;D

Well based on how many posts you have, you earn a certain rank, all ranks named after M. Night Shyamalan's films. The newer Shyamalan movie you have, the higher rank it is.

Innocence- Im so sorry. I hope your knee and leg and arm feel better! I play outdoor soccer (my dad is one of the coach) and if it makes you feel better one girl on my team broke her leg another guy got his nose broken and then got a red card because he took the ball away from the dude who broke his nose, and some girl elbowed me in the jaw, and I wear braces so that didnt tickle too much!

Well I think like 20 pages back people said who they were auditioning for but Im going for Katara! What about everyone else?

lol...well, Azula mostly or Suki; maybe Katara or Tylee...

Alright guys. I just wasted ten minutes reading the last four pages! Like really, we are all getting so off topic . The last time I checked was like 11 or something and then I come back and there are 4 pages.  :P

But really, this whole part of the forum is supposed to be for auditions, and we're not really talking about them. (I feel bad for the people who just joined and had to read 90 pages  :P).

Well I'm trying not to be the grouchy, nagging person on this forum, so I'll stop being annoying  ;D. And Gary, let us know what your aunt says! (very exciting cause it'll be real info) ;D ;D ;D

Kuzon, I would say The Duke, you have a lot of his features, but then again it's not all about the looks. :) Well, who's your favorite chararcter in "Avatar". Maybe that can better determine who you should be.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 27, 2008, 04:26:50 PM
Yeah that would. :D

Well, I guess who is your favorite boy chararcter? Mine is Zuko and I'm auditioning for him. I really think I could portray him well. So, who do you think you could portray well? And yeah, aren't you 16, yeah, you are about twice his age. In one picture you actually look like Aang, but in another you look like Jet.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: avatarluv13 on July 27, 2008, 04:30:21 PM
i, like alot of other girls, want to be Katara!
shes fun, shes determined, shes fierce, bull-headed, and a great waterbender!  ;D
i think i would make a great Katara!
ive studied the martial art used for waterbending and if u add some water on camera with digital effects it wud look like im a really good waterbender.
lol
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: wingman on July 27, 2008, 04:31:53 PM
My favorite is Azula too! haha. But I like Sokka too and that's who I'd audition for.

Well Kuzon, how tall are you? Cause if you're really short than The Duke would be great for you (and probably less competition)!
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 27, 2008, 04:35:37 PM
Katara, Azula, and Sokka are great chararcters!

All would take a lot of work, so maybe we should start practicing now. Avatar Spirit has the scripts for the shows. Maybe we should print those and read the chararcter's lines.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 27, 2008, 04:39:01 PM
I'm mainly going for Azula or Suki, possibly Toph
but really any major girl character or secondary girl character would be fine
hell any character would be fine
I wouldnt care if they stuck me in there as some random bender it would just be great to be in :)

I'm turning 15 on August 8th, about 5'4 1/2'' 5'5'', golden blond hair (but I'm willing to dye it), really athletic and gray eyes
oh and pretty pale :)
if thats still kinda hard to picture, about 80 people have told me I look exactly like Britney Spears back when she was popular
personally I don't see it but yeah
so I don't really look line anyone in the actual show, but if I dyed my hair I think it would be better
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 27, 2008, 04:46:08 PM
We should actually post youtube videos of ourself acting out as the charatcers we want. ;) And then we could give each other tips.

And vamptasticavatar, I've seen you on your youtube account, you don't really look like Brittany Spears. Oh, and if you don't get a role in "The Last Airbender", you could try to find auditions for the next "Batman" film, being that you're a Dark Knight fan. :)
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 27, 2008, 04:47:41 PM
THANK YOU
I really have no idea what people are talking about when they say that
I really don't see it AT ALL
I was actually thinking about that
like batgirl or something :D
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 27, 2008, 04:53:34 PM
Me neither, but I want one!

And yes, you could audition for Batgirl or something. There were actually rumors she would appear I think. Or maybe Harley Quinn if they show her in the next film. ???
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 27, 2008, 04:57:14 PM
lol im sure that jonathan nguyen thing is just a rumor and fake, nothing else
because if they were this quiet they would have been because of contracts and stuff...
and plus he looks too old and that picture of him was taken 2 years ago or something so he'll look even
more older...
personally Im going for Aang  ;D
Im 18 though but in my school...people still think im in gr8 or 9
Im like 5"5 so im short and thats a good thing cause Aangs short too
and Im like light skinned Filipino too xD
lol lots of Filipino xD
Hoy Pare!!! ;D

I wouldnt worry much about those people that were rumored to be attached cause it was too early
I mean that jonathan nguyen got attached before paramount even approved of making Shaymalan direct the movie
and that was in january of 2008 when he got approved he was rumored to be attached like in 2007..
so thats a big Fake...

Haha, I saw the Dark Knight last night. It was pretty good. Yahoo kept saying how disturbing and creepy it was for kids under 14, but it takes a lot to scare me. xP

And making audition video actually sounds like a good idea. Next time my mom leaves I just might. xD

If you guys make videos please do it on the other post

these post was created for audition info and its really hard to track things after all
this off topic stuff...im not trying to be mean...
but if you want to send,create and post pics
please do it on the avatar audition fake thingy....not here...
and gwags did u find any info yet...
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: kuromi on July 27, 2008, 05:07:07 PM
True, people from the net are probably coming here in search of audition info and some of them actually read through all the pages. So we should avoid getting off topic. =]
Even though that kinda was off topic. *shot*
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 27, 2008, 05:10:36 PM
well I mean to find out about them we have to wait for the people who said they would call and stuff
theres not much else out there
I spent a good entire day looking
theres nothing wrong with getting kinda off topic while we are waiting for info
especially if its not coming till september
this board shouldn't die just because we have no info on auditions
we can still chat :)

speaking of calling though, did the people that said they were going to call to ask ever call?
a lot of people were saying I should but then others said they would and I really don't wanna piss off Doug

OFF TOPIC:
ohhh Harley Quinn would be great if Heath was still alive
he's one of my favorite actors so if I got to be his sidekick, especially when he was playing such a great character I would probably die

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: kuromi on July 27, 2008, 05:18:00 PM
I think we should wait to call him till at least mid August.

Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 27, 2008, 07:07:19 PM
heres the monologue definition:
A monologue is an extended, uninterrupted speech or poem by a single person. The person may be speaking his or her thoughts aloud or directly addressing other persons, e.g. an audience, a character, or a reader.

so yeah, its a long speech, not just a few lines
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on July 27, 2008, 07:16:24 PM
yeah, but usually in a monologue you're not adressing the audience, unless directed to do so. I guess a monologue can be both a soliloquy and an aside.


I never thought of that before.

Not trying to be mean or anything like that just saying, im 5'10 and hoping for Jet or Longshot hmm you never know maybe you get the role of The Duke and I get Longshot, what are the odds of that happening? Anyway going to go practice some lines for Longshot....

i asked him if he had any info on the auditions for The Last Airbender movie.
i told him to call me or e-mail me wit any info.
nd if i dont hear from him in a week ima call back nd keep calling till i get an answer from someone there.
calling him was so nerve wrecking!!  :o
lol
but once it was done i felt like i was really doing sumthing about being in this movie.
i think if we all work hard enough and give it our all, we can all be in this movie.
sure we might not get the part we were hoping for... but being in it at all is amazing!! ;D

I will not call Mr. Aibel. I think it might be a tad frustrating for a grown man to be bombarded with calls from pubescent teens asking for information about a movie he just started work on. I suggest we lay back, have fun speculating, and then leap into action the second we get any official information. Give the man some rest though, I think he may dserve it.

I suggest you guys go look for more things about avatar everywhere..
not just staying here...
forums, fan sites, google, casting sites, etc.
I mean to find info you have to look everywhere right? :P
SO PEOPLE LOOK!!!
because it would suck to find out casting is over from Doug Aibel
when he said more info will come in September!!
I dont want to miss this chance and I know you guys dont want to too
SO PEOPLE STAY ON TOPIC AND SCOUT EVERY SINGLE SITE IN THE INTERNET!! >:(

there would be open auditions in fall...people will question it...
this interview are both the same but different sources...

What Tv guide states is that Aang, the main role in The Last Airbender, has been casted. However, it appears Night has not said anything on casting the other characters or open auditions. I'm sorry to all you Aang hopefuls.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: NinjaBlank on July 28, 2008, 06:38:07 AM

Btw, if Aang was already casted and we haven't found that much information about it, won't it be a closed audition?
Title: Re: Auditions

Welcome new people!

I'm sorry GotRice. :(. Does anyone think Mnight may be lying again, or is it aibel? But when if Mnight wasn't lying when he said "We've seen thousands of kids.." I'm very confused. Why would he only cast Aang so far? It could very well be closed or it could be bluff to the press. ???

Overall, I'm very sorry, I'm dissapointed myself. :(
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 28, 2008, 07:02:08 AM
The thing is, Aang is (obviously, and if any of you didn't know I WOULD have to shoot you) the main character
and so Shyamalan may want him to be a more experianced actor
so he didn't hold an open call for Aang, he just looked for someone who has had previous experience in something
for the other roles however, he may want to get new talent
he just wanted to make sure that the lead wasn't completely new to this
if that doesn't make sense just tell me
it makes sense in my head just not sure if I got it out right...

Vamptasticavatar is right. Mark Hamill (portrayed Luke Skywalker is Star Wars) was not a newbie. He played small roles in a few tv series. Night has the same idea and probally got a small time actor, not really known about, and has found his "Aang."

Wow. A lot of real news since last night. I feel that this is what we should have been doing for the longest time- looking on websites to find information (not talking about our height  :P).

Sorry for all you aspiring Aangs  :-[. This is going to make me work so much faster! But I still feel that we shouldn't be calling Doug until mid-August. This may be why they won't hold open auditions- because of fans really wanting the parts and being annoying  :P. Not that we're annoying or obsessive (haha yeahhhh).

We should wait until Gary's aunt gives us real info (or says she can't find any) and then decide where to go from there.

Top priority for me: Get headshots/agent

so aang has been chosen ehh???

that kinda leads me too think that he casted everyone...god, right when we find something good out, something bad happens. i officially think this movie is going to suck...and my dreams are shattered... :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[

Gary, the tv guide website ONLY said that aang was casted, nothing about the other characters.

well when there is no new news it is hard not to say random things  ::) i amgoing to try to get an agent bc i have had some past acting expierences

Post by: thejohngalt on July 28, 2008, 10:25:13 AM
For casting you don't need an agent except it looks good, I heard...

However an idea for an agent is a parent, or someone you trust a lot

From now on... We're all going to be positive attitude Sokkas  ;D!

Let's not panic and speculate too much. We'll wait until Gary's aunt tells us info, and then panic. Or no.. we won't panic then. Because we can always be casted as extras (Heery casts them, right?). We WILL at least audition guys. We just need to think what we can do. Just think about how far this forum has come. Granted, it's been over 100 pages. But if we take out all the crap that's been said, we probably have a good 30 pages of info to work with. So let's not be pessimistic Sokkas (coughGARYcough), and let's try to do something.

And that's my speech for the day  ;D

time for my Over analystic power to come!! >:(
and its also bad news to you guys becase the other interview said castings has begun...
so maybe in a few months they would find everyone...
not only aang...

and mostly my over analytical thingy is mostly right I just got to find proofs...
I hope I find something to make this untrue...
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 28, 2008, 11:13:27 AM
Ok so I'm going to turn into my over-analytical self which has been happening a lot because of the Breaking Twilight quotes of the day
so it shouldn't be too hard :)

Anyways, with that whole "casting has begun, we've seen thousands of kids, I believe we have found the next superstars"
Ok, so this may be kinda confusing, but what I'm thinking with that, and I said this like 80 pages back but there is no way in hell I'm going to try to find it (rant), is that, casting is not JUST casting, maybe he meant getting the casting director, and getting the kid to play Aang all strapped down, the search for Aang had begun, or the search for all the characters he wanted to not have an open call was being done. By the "we have seen thousands of kids...etc." I think he may mean that, they have seen thousands of kids walking down the street and in stores and stuff, and when the roles get casted, they will be the next superstars. Make sense?
like the Harry Potter kids
it was open call wasn't it? I know Rupert Grint sent in his video late to try and show his "alikeness" to Ron
so yeah, they have seen all these kids out in the world, and he thinks they will become the next superstars (whoever gets casted)

and then I just said my thing about Aang today like, one page back, so if you missed that thats not too hard to find
but I'm still too lazy :)

BIG LONG SPIEL OVER
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 28, 2008, 11:16:29 AM
haha sometimes I love me being so over analytical  ;D

ok lets see...
have you guys noticed that the keyword in the 2 interviews I posted yesterday was
"Licensing International Expo 2008" I googled that word mostly up with of course
attachment of the last airbender...
and there were two differences in them too...

as I remember in school a teacher always said that you have to have quotes if your writing about
essays,stories,articles,etc.
that way they will be more believable and they will see more truth...

anyways in all the interviews about the licensing expo they did have the same quotes saying...
"casting has started and I believe weve found the next superstar"

http://community.tvguide.com/blog-entry/TVGuide-Editors-Blog/Movie-News/M-Night-Shyamalan/800041251

but this link to an interview is merely saying that they casted Aang's role but have nothing to back it up
except the same quote..."casting has started and I believe weve found the next superstar"...
so how come In every interview no one stated that they casted Aangs role except this interview in the above link...
I mean think about it...that is the only interview that stated they casted Aang...
and they have no proof of him stating that except their back up quote was...
"casting has started and I believe weve found the next superstar"
but all other interview just used this quote and none of them stated
that Aang is casted...except the above link...
Ive read 5 interviews about the expo and out of those 5 only one said Aang is casted
and out of 5, four just commented about him saying "casting has started and I believe weve found the next superstar"
but none of those four ever said anything about Aang being casted...

so in conclusion... out of probability, out of proofs, out of that interview not having any back up quotes...
I think that the interview was merely an assumption that Aang is casted...
so my point is would you believe 4 interviews and a directors word...on a 1 interview?
I mean i tried also looking for an interview the same as that but every interview that I came across with never
stated that they casted Aang...

but if anyone finds another interview saying that they casted Aangs role please post it up because Im also
basing this in probability...
so for now I believe this to be an ASSUMPTION!!

yay...lets just hope Im right

Well, vamp may be right once again. ;) I'm not entirely sure what's the story now, but that doesn't mean giving up, so we should all be on look-out. :p. Again, if that's true, sorry to all the aspiring Aangs. The rest of the casting could be open for all we know so if Aangs casted at least strive for another role. :)

I think all of us should look for agents just in case. With all these rumors the only way we could probably know if they are fake is with an agent.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 28, 2008, 11:33:04 AM
If that was true what you said about Aang being an experienced actor vamptastic...
then you also have to know daniel radcliffe didnt have much any experience to begin with
I mean none of the harry potter people never had any real experiences except school plays...
but it maybe true though since Mnight's career maybe on the line judging by his past movies..
and that hes not gonna put it down for an unexperienced actor... :'(

but anyways that interview I have a feeling its an assumption...but you may never know...
if its true they casted aang I wish him best of luck..Im just sad if it is cause I atleast
wanted a chance to try even if Im not going to make it... :'(

I just hope we still have a chance...
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: thejohngalt on July 28, 2008, 11:36:48 AM
Ya, Daniel Radclif also sent a movie of himself in

But so many sources say that casting have taken place, what if we don't get a chance to the audition...
And we don't even know if open auditions were or are ever going to place...
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 28, 2008, 11:39:01 AM
anyways the only thing we can do people who cant get agents is
try and call Aibel and try and clarify everything...

Ok to whoever is going to call
you have to ask:

1) Has casting for all main roles begun yet? If not when?
2) Will there be open auditions for roles?
3) If there are open auditions are there any locations in mind?
4)Shaymalan's agent said that casting is done is he telling us the truth? why would he lie?
5)are videos allowed if its open casting calls?
6)Some people are claiming that they have auditioned already for the movie is that true? did some auditions happen a while ago?
7)Shaymalan recently stated in an interview that casting has begun?is it true? if not why would he say it started?
8)Do we need agents?
9)a recent article stated that Aang's role is taken is that true?

anyways, im really bummed, my whole summer spent on this forum, just to find out that i didn't take enough action fast enough to get enough information for us...now none of us can audition...but before i went to bed something funny happened...i was praying ( like i always do) and at the end of it, i said, "st. jude, could you at least help me get into the movie, or audition, it has been my dream since march, and you know it has been". and when i wake up, and check the forums, this is what i find...god, life sucks...

No Gary, its not final ... Rice is putting all effort to find out proof to declare that the auditions are still open.

And if the casting has happened its only "Aang" that would be official

EDIT: IDK, she could be back...one of my friends on deviantart went and she just posted art up...is SDCC over? ???

The "Avatar" panel is actually over, and the QandA I think is over as well, and all the questions about the movie were asked. Unless, Hellozombie asks them the questions when they're doing autograph signings.

Post by: GotRice on July 28, 2008, 12:42:53 PM
Gawd! was no one reading my long post... :-\

well there had been a dozens of interview like what kuzon posted
but out of 12 Ive seen only one that actually said Aang has been casted
and thats what Kuzon posted and the other interviews none of them said Aangs role is taken
and also plus the one kuzon posted had no quotes of Mnight saying theyve casted
Aang...
So who would you believe more 11 interviews saying the exact same thing or 1
interview that has no legitimate proof that Mnight said Aangs roles is gone... :-\
As I said Im 89% sure that the interview Kuzon posted was a false and assumption type interview nothing more
because basing it on proofs, other sources, casting directors word, and probability...
It may not be true...
I hope..
If Aang doesnt work theres always Zuko for me..
but I just hope Aang is still out there... :'(

Okay, this all obviously a huge misunderstanding. Yes, GotRice you're right. A bunch if interviews say similiar things but are all different than the whole "Aang has been casted". I think we covered this before. M. Night Shyamalan did this to create hype, OR, the press misunderstood what he was saying. This is all a big misunderstanding.

not necessarily true...thats 1 interview versus a dozen

to get pro or big agents, you have to have a good resume

again, a easy agent to get is parents or someone you trust


also not necessarily true Shia lebouef send a video himself through an agency thats how he got an agent...
he had no other experiences too...
and I dont think it can be a parent because they have to be a part of a union?
SAG, all those stuff, etc...

this is bothering me though...
woudnt it haunt Mnight in the future if casting has really not started and it would be open auditions?
I mean people will ask in the future "why did you say it has started 2 months ago if your only starting now?"
It's making me really wonder if it will be open auditions...
I hope its not closed...

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Waterbender7 on July 28, 2008, 12:58:40 PM
Well I just read through like 8 pages! Wow you guys have been busy! If its true that Aang has been casted Im really sorry to all who have auditioned for him. But to be completely honest I feel that it could be completely false so dont lose hope yet! I say most of the information should be coming in September and that information BETTER have when and where the auditions are going to take place and not just "These are the people that are casted for the following characters...." because I will be seriously mad if that happens!!  

And Aibel I dont think is answering his phone or emails or anything because too many people are calling. We may just want to have 3 people call instead of like 10 so he isnt annoyed by us, just a thought! Im sure whenever Hellozombie gets back she'll have information and if not, well then atleast she tried along with Gary (which I give you credit for, thanks for trying!) But now I say lets just stay positive and not let information about THIS PERSON IS CAST AS AANG or anything like that get in our way of auditioning.

I really do not want anyone getting pissed at us for calling
I know we are just trying to figure stuff out, but getting the casting director angry and/or annoyed at us is no way to get info or to get on his good side
so really before we have 10 people calling him 50 times a day, can we kinda...not
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: gwags33 on July 28, 2008, 01:22:07 PM
well, i don't see why if it is over, they don't tell us. it is so annoying that we keep finding out bad information after we finding out good info. and we need to find out if the cats has been chosen...god, i hate m night shyamalan...he keeps all his movies so quiet, and he should not direct any more movies...



him making this movie is kind of making me not like avatar any more...because he isn't seeing all the kids who are truly fans of avatar, even get info on the movie...he just Wants to make a good movie so hes stealing someone else's story....and HES GOING TO MAKE IT HORRIBLE...!!!!!!!!!!!!  >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

Yeah, please, enough calling. I mean really, a while back we decided that one more call should take place and that Vamptastic was gonna call, but I guess that plan was completly thrown out the window. And f you guys are wondering why he isn't answering you're calls is because by now he's stopped answering unknown calls. So seriously, this is no good way to get on the good-side of the casting director that's casting for the movie you want to audition for.

And Gary, if you think he's gonna ruin the film, than why do you wanna audition? I know, it's very frustrting, but really...

well, i think he's going to ruin the film because he isn't letting the true fans even know any information about auditions or castings...i don't think hes going to ruin it because hes horrible at making movies, i think he's going to ruin it because he isn't going to see every person who wants to audition...


and its not making me hate avatar, it makes me frustrated about avatar... because every time i watch avatar, i remember that theres going to be a movie about a show and thing that changed my life...and i don't even get to audition for it...thats what makes me mad...BUT I STILL LOVE AVATAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

You guys wouldn't want your parent as an agent (unless your parent does it professionally and has a lot of connections). Otherwise, your parent could be a manager (that way they can protect you and blah blah blah). You want to get an agent that gets his/her job done and knows people in the industry.

And Kuzon- really it's great that you're happy sometimes, but we don't need a post that only says " ;D" or "goodnight". Not trying to sound mean, but this thread is getting long enough.

And Gary...stop being so negative!

of not getting info too... :'(
I just really wanna be part of this movie...
but its like were not even being given a chance...
let alone any info...no matter how hard we try...
Its like all youve been doing was for nothing... :'(
I mean if its over why not just say its over rather than
disappointing thousands of kids...

Same feelings here GotRice...We all want to be apart of that amazing universe. And it's sad. I'm sure there were numerous amounts of kids wanting to audition for Aang. Were there any other parts you wanted to audition for? And again, I'm really sorry...I know how it feels, because when I talked to Shyamalan's supposed agent, he told me auditions were most likely over, and then I thought it was all over.

You guys, don't feel bad. Remember the whole Aang thing is still a rumor.

So for now we just chill, don't panic, and keep searching for info, and don't believe everything you read.

Okay here is what I found

http://www.mania.com/paramount-mnight-shyamalan-previews-last-airbender_article_58631.html
at this website it said that the Licensing International Expo 2008 was at theJacob K. Javits Convention Center, which is where i found this nest website.
http://www.javitscenter.com/events/default.asp?month=5&year=2008
(look at June 10, 2008 - June 12, 2008)

when I clicked on "Licensing International Expo - trade" it had a link to their website
(there is a CUSTOMER SERVICE HOTLINE when you click on it but I found more contact info on this website:

http://www.licensingexpo.com/licensingshow/v42/index.cvn?id=10110

here is the home page for the expo

The Iroh thing is also old, and the quote has been displayed everywhere. However the reason most of us dont believe it is b/c there is no proof to back it up.

well i just called paramount pictures, nickelodeon, caa, mtv films, blinding edge pictures and the vineyard theatre...the only thing i got out of any of them was blinding edge pictures...and they said too call back in September because they would have more information then...BLAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 28, 2008, 05:40:41 PM
Well then
I suggest we do what Doug AND the main company producing the film suggest to do
WAIT TILL SEPTEMBER
I hate to sound mean but people seriously
saying that you are all depressed by auditions being over isn't helping anything
its just making everyone all depressed and angry and we don't need any of that
Obviously everyone here loves Avatar and would love to be part of that world, we all feel what you are going through, your not the only ones, I'm pretty sure everyone loves Avatar the same amount in here so don't go thinking your the only one that would be depressed if auditions were over
we all would be
and I'm not singling anyone out but I have just been seeing all these negative comments
we have been told more information will come in September, if something big got released (i.e THE CAST) we would not have to go digging through random websites to find it
Like my crew coach said, were hurrying up and waiting
if the company producing it and the casting director tell us to wait in September, I suggest we do
thinking its over isn't going to do anything but make everyone else sad
and I really don't mean to be rude but I'm tired of getting on and seeing 5 pages of people whining
so, suck it up
we all want this
(rude session over)

So lets just
wait
be calm
more information will come if we relaxxxxx

Post by: gwags33 on July 28, 2008, 06:06:33 PM
as true and "rude" as the comment was...(it wasn't rude but you called it rude)...helped me out a lot!!! i forgot i wasn't the only one that wanted to be part of this movie. and im not the only avatar lover out there. avatar has changed all of our lives, not just mine.

even if we don't get into this movie...i will always remember you guys, and the crazy summer i had trying to figure out when this amazing show would become real...even if i did waste my summer trying to figure out when auditions are, it was meant to be, so i guess i cant be too sad...

and we still have my aunt to fall back on, and very true, if the cast was chosen, it probably would have been leaked, so i still have hope!!!

im going to make a movie this week, just in case...  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D


also...sozins comet is on right now, on nick  ;D ;D ;D ;D :D :D :D :D

Post by: shadowbender on July 28, 2008, 06:11:14 PM
Well said guys. :)

I mean really, we seriously wouldn't have to even try and find all this stuff. If people have been cast it would be leaked all over.

And, Kuzon, to answer your question before about when I contacted his supposed agent, that was earlier this month. He said casting was in process or the cast had already been cast. Before that I called Aibel and he said wait until September.

And again guys, if auditions had already taken place, it wouldn't be thishard to find info on it. And I posted this before, there was a kid that was cast in Shyamalan's "The Village" and he said he went to an open audition to get the role.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 28, 2008, 06:12:33 PM
Oh, and Gary, one more thing to add to your list of things we know: The movie is set to be released on July 2nd, 2010.

Oh, and someone also said a while back that it was announced there would be an "Avatar" movie in January 2008, it was actually announced January 2007.

Sorry guys, just want to cover things. ;)

But seriously though...we gotta be realistic...
someone should call Doug Aibel...(I vote vamptastic)
and ask 3 main and important questions...

1)has castings started for the main roles?
2)is it open auditions?
3)when and where is it?

I think those are the only main questions that we need to really
clarify on...It will just make me feel better if this questions are answered...

lol. well said vamptasticavatar. I mean the last 50 pages have been just whining and overspeculation. I would suggest to do something to take your mind off avatar, maybe get of the computer for a little bit and just chillax. There are some of us here who visit this page way to often, trust me it makes it harder to wait. Don't call Doug Aibel with those questions they've already been asked. Just wait till the end of August, it's going to be alright. Maybe catch some movies on TV or something, pick up some acting books from your local library, study your character for a while. But please stop posting about things we already know, it's getting tiring. Please and thanks. And the casting hasn't started yet, every part hasn't been cast. Just be patient.

honestly I think you have a chance. Like if you seriously are perfect for the role then anything is possible. Or extra that's always awesome. ;)

He doesn't reply to messages. IamKatara left one. And if you think about it it's just not likely he would reply to fans or unsolicited calls.

My favorite song applies in this instance! Sort of! "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming. Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming, what do we do? We swim." ;D Optimistic, happy faces, everyone! Breathe, enjoy life! Even if you don't get a role in the movie.. you could make a play for it (not like the one in the series.. haha) and star as your favorite character! You can post it on youtube, give us the link, and we can make each other super well-known Avatar players! Or you could get a chance in another movie! Or you could make your own Avatar movie..! Only it won't be as highly funded, probably.. Unless you are unbelievably rich and have that kind of money to spare for the production. ;)

HEY GUYS! I was still "recuperating" from the last couple days so I couldn't post anything up right away. :D

So let's get right to the point. Unfortunately, there wasn't anything new or major at the Avatar panel regarding the live action films. I'm sure if there even WAS anything newsworthy, you'd probably have heard about it by now anyways. As for the autograph signing, there were A LOT of people in line and we had to move kind of quickly, so I wasn't able to ask them any questions. But it was so overwhelmingly AWESOME seeing them in person. Maybe that's another reason why I couldn't ask them. lol I wouldn't even be able to talk right. :D But yeah, basically, I got nothing.

AHHH! I KNOW! I couldn't believe it myself. I always look at that picture and think, "WOW, it's them." And then I just love Avatar even more after doing so. haha! Yeahhh, I should've cosplayed an Avatar character. I don't have a Toph costume and I have an unfinished Katara one. I just wanted to stick with costumes I had already. ^^; But I was thinking that too. Maybe they would choose me or something if I went as Toph/Katara. That would be soooooooooo AWESOME.

It states that the Aang gang has already been casted. Im not sure what to expect but Im really hoping this is not true. Im trying to stay positive but its just really hard for me to do so when a whole bunch of information like this keeps popping up everywhere.

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: shadowbender on July 29, 2008, 07:35:05 PM
That's right. And, when you search up "Harry Potter auditions" on youtube, what do you find? Videos from auditions. And, when you search up "The Last Airbender auditions" what do you find? Nothing. Thus, auditions most likely haven't started yet unless they were closed. Besides, that was not from a legit resource, it was from a blog.

Random question for Hellozombie: How much were tickets to Comic Con? I really wanna go celebrate "Avatar".

depends on what days you're going and your age. I paid $35 for my cousin (junior price, one day passes for fri and sat), and I think $50-60 for myself? I can't remember exactly. adult 4 day passes are the most expensive, they're like $75 I believe? again, not exactly sure.

hey ninja, what do you mena by they can only look at your resume and headshot??? does that mean there taking headshots and resumes for the movie now???  :o :o :o :o ??? ??? ??? ???

I had to ring a bell and all that in order to speak to some guy.
When I asked if I could speak to Doug Aibel or ask questions he(the guy at the front desk...not they) said no. He could only pass your resume and head shot to him but that's about it. --> Meant for casting in General.

Post by: NinjaBlank on July 29, 2008, 08:23:39 PM
Ninja, can you explain who "they" are?

I didn't mean they, it was the guy that was in charge of the appointments and what-not. He sounded like the first guy you hear when you call the "Casting" # for Vineyard Theatre.

I could not, I needed to get an appointment and they wouldn't even answer my questions.
Damn, this sucks. :[
Well, they said that all they could do was view your resume and head shot...


Did you set up an appointment?

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: avatarluv13 on July 29, 2008, 08:50:33 PM
Well I'm thinking that cant be right because it said filming would start in August
it says in some interview with MNight that they were going to start SET PRODUCTION in august
so I don't know how they can film without a set...

yeah i heard that in may of 2009 filming wud start...
that or late this year.

i dont have the exact website cuz i, like many ppl on here, went thru alot of webistes to try and find sumthin on this film i didnt already know.
so unfortunately, no i dont.

yeah no doubt due to the amount of fans who want to audition bothering him. Well it was cool of you to go in though. I guess we really do have to wait for September.

And as for that article the filming start that it claims is not right. Sets are being built in August like vamp said. That I know for sure. And the first 3 weeks are in Greenland. I hope it's not true but we'll just have to wait and see. In the meantime headshots and resumes... ;)

Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum and I'm trying to get an audition for the movie as well. (big surprise im sure...)  ;D Anyways, I'll do what I can to help get some information on casting.  Right now I'm trying to find out what's going on by asking some of the people that have already auditioned. I'll let you know if I find anything out.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 29, 2008, 09:29:19 PM
Matt800 welcome to the forums!!

ummm I dont think anyone has auditioned for the movie yet...
those Jonathan Nguyen, Noah Hunt, Eleana Fox, and Eher Brent were all
just rumors and fake!!
well of as for now were waiting for a real info from the casting Director
who said it will come in september....I hope auditioning info too...

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Matt800 on July 29, 2008, 09:35:36 PM
How do you know they're fake? I'm pretty sure at least Noah auditioned, I sent him a message and asked and he said a bunch of people have been asking him but he didnt get the part. I'm assuming that means he auditioned, but its possible he meant that he never had anything to do with it. I'll get back to you with more on that though.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: GotRice on July 29, 2008, 09:39:44 PM
because the casting director said that the main roles were not casted...
so if he didnt get the part then shouldnt some kid have it by now?
and more info will come in september...

anyways look BOOK 4: AIR episode weee!!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLI1AvPjUeQ

and matt some guy quoted on page 15...

OMG!!!
I just called Doug Aibel's theatre and asked if they would be casting a Shyamalan movie coming up and they said not until the fall.
So that means Doug Aibel is casting it.
Great news!!!
And we have time as well. this is excellent!!

if you really want to find info I suggest reading everythng from page 1 lol

Haha yea I've only read the last 20 pages or so. I'll ask Noah to clarify his situation and anything he knows about casting, just to make sure. All the information so far has been pretty vague, so either way, knowing his situation will at least confirm something.

Sorry  if this is off topic or whatever, I just have to vent because I am in a really bad mood for some reason  :-\.

Yeah I'll make sure to get to the bottom of it.

Has anyone tried writing shyamalan? Just c/o through his agent and for all we know he'd respond. I've got a few friends who are actors that say they get a bunch of fan mail that way, and they read it.  There's a bunch of stuff he could clear up, and I'd be willing to try it if someone hasn't tried already.

I should get on making a video, resume, and getting a headshot.. Although it's probably best for me to do so when school starts.. I have some photographer friends..

 :-\
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: Matt800 on July 29, 2008, 11:13:52 PM
I think it would be best to not call him again. If he's already said there will be more info in september and is not responding further, we dont want to keep annoying him. If anything, i would say send him a nice card or gift just to sympathize with him being hassled so much, and give him some respect for the random avatar fans out there, That way he would likely be more open to casting us. Other than that, I'd say contact people that havent been tried yet. Maybe Shyamalan, or people in the business who would be able to ask these people and get a real response (agents, actors, etc).

welcome to the forums al55  ;D

Ninja has already tried to go "talk" to Aibel face to face. Also, trying to call Aibel hasn't been a sucess, for he doesn't appear to answer the phone.

So there isn't much to do but wait.

Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: iamkatara on July 30, 2008, 09:51:10 AM
I guess we could make our audition videos(without any personal info of course) and post then here, asking for tips and stuff. It's probably the best way to get ready.
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: vamptasticavatar on July 30, 2008, 10:05:54 AM
I agree :)
lets let him get some air
we don't want to suffocate the casting director
I'm sure he wouldn't like that very much

I think we should, yeah, make videos if you want suggestions
maybe put together a resume and post it in the other topic thing (called "resumes" :))
and then just relax and wait for more information to come to us
or at least until September
Doug if you don't release anything in September you can answer to me >_>

anywaysssss
has everyone seen the finale??

Post by: gwags33 on July 30, 2008, 10:27:06 AM
ive seen the finale 11 times   ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D never gets old!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

and i think iamkatara is right we should post ourselves right and see if we should change anything about our selves for the better...


and someone said about sending resumes to m night shyamalan's agent, i tryed that about 2 months ago...they didnt even respond to me, and i sent it to LA, NYC and Beijing...oh well, hopefully september works   :) :) :) :)


and hellozombie...i think you look more like katara then toph now that i saw that picture...hahah...your very pretty, and aang would be lucky if you got the part as katara XD
Title: Re: Auditions
Post by: happyelectrons on July 30, 2008, 10:48:31 AM
lol. I love u guys. we say the same things over and over.  ;D

Yeah I made an audition video yesterday but I'll probably make another cuz I really didn't like what I was wearing and I want it to be perfect. The first part was me telling about my experience, my interpretations of Katara and things like that. Then the second part was 2 monologues, one serious and one funny. But I was trying to think of ways to standout apart from my acting. like Rupert Grint sent in a tape of him doing rap lyrics he made up that were about Ron. I think we should each find something to do that will make us standout.
