Lets summarize what we had in the 1st post

-Doug Aibel lied..
-we found out Gail Levin is the casting director
-there was a posted avatar audition in actorsaccess.com
-there is a site for all Aang hopefuls which is thelastairbendercastings.com
-Gail Levin is preety mich looking at anything that comes in the door
-send your stuff in to Gail Levin not the mailing address from the Aang search site but in actorsaccess.com site
-search for Aang ends in september 2...maybe fro all other characters too
-this is the continuation of Auditions...

anything else Ive missed?

We just have to make sure everyone stays ON TOPIC in this thread(cough, the originals... cough. KUZON! cough. jk jk lol). My stuff should be reaching Cali. today or tomorrow. Hopefully I'll get a phone call sometime soon. PLEASE GOD LET ME GET A CALL SOON!!! lol.

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: monkeyswima on August 06, 2008, 11:50:39 AM
i hope you do and then can you reccomend some of us????
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: iamkatara on August 06, 2008, 11:56:28 AM
Hopefully I can. IDN about you guys, but i'd def. recommend hellozombie and Malia from ASN for Toph and Ty Lee.

I really hope I get a call. At least so i'll be able to help you guys with everything.

make sure to keep trying to get agents. It's the key. I swear it.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: monkeyswima on August 06, 2008, 11:58:00 AM
and how do you get an agent if you have almost no expirience?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: shadowbender on August 06, 2008, 11:59:01 AM
Yeah this could help. The other thread was getting so long. But still, it would've been nice to see the auditions thread as the longest on M. Night Shyamalan Fans. ;D

Oh, and Happy Birthday M. Night! :D

And Iamkatara, it might be a while before you get a call, I sent mine in days ago and they have yet to call. :-\

Post by: Bright.123 on August 06, 2008, 12:00:15 PM
Ok, so I'm figuring if my stuff gets mailed tomorrow-

It should arrive at Paramount in about 2-5 business days.

What I need to do now is go find a magical way to take a lovely picture when it needs to be of my face and I'm the only person available to take the picture...
Gah.

And now I'm curious about why Doug Aibel would lie directly to us, about doing the casting, especially since we would find out eventually. So random.

And ok, what do you all think for pictures- Outdoors, indoors, etc.?

And I'm new here, but since I've been stalking these forums I know you are all amazingly amazing, and if there is any chance I get a part, I'll make sure they check out the forums and the people from the forums who auditioned.

Ack, if anybody gets a call, make sure you post it!

I suggest do it indoors with a room that has a window and that gets alot of sunlight
and also do it in a empty background
you only need a digital camera....
and you can actually time it
and dont forget to remove the flash...
makes it look more proffesinal xD

I think what Doug Aibel meant is that the cast aould be revealed in September, I mean, look at the deadline for Aang's auditions. And as for outdoors or indoors, it depends on your emotion in the picture. For example, if you're lonely looking, than indoors, or if you have an amazed look on your face, than outdoors with like a sunset or something. Might sound cheesy at times, but hey, it'll probably help. And good luck with sending in your stuff.

So iamkatara usually do they wait till they have looked through everything that is coming in or do they just call as soon as they like you? You've done this before right? Or does it just depend on the casting director?

In the defence of Gary as he is not here,...

No Gary, you don't have to be mean....However, if your not going to take critiscm, then don't post anything that you would be offended by if it got shot down.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: shadowbender on August 06, 2008, 12:16:31 PM
Seriously, exactly like SkuiisHot. I mean, first all of the racist comments, and now this? Do us all a favor, like GotRice said, and shut up yourself.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 06, 2008, 12:18:52 PM
thanks to all of you!
I'm going to go magically make myself presentable and try a few shots, see how they turn out.
Hopefully, well.

One last question- I have braces right now, so should I show them, or do a closed mouth smile, or anything?
I'll probably end up taking both and posting them up here so you can tell me which ones better.

And I've been mailing resumes with just a picture to agents, no callbacks yet, but I've only sent out a few.
I'm really excited still, though.
Ack!

And I think maybe we should work a little harder on being, I don't know, gentler? Or something less, well, rude?
With the risk of sounding preachy and like a grade school teacher, do to others as you want to yourself!
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: monkeyswima on August 06, 2008, 12:20:29 PM
well everyone i think we should just stop with the insults
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: shadowbender on August 06, 2008, 12:21:42 PM
Yeah, I would take one picture with your braces and one without.

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: thejohngalt on August 06, 2008, 12:22:27 PM
Maybe you can get those new braces, the ones that are clear and fit right over your teeth
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 06, 2008, 12:22:38 PM
well isnt it only a simple smirk...
when you take a picture...for acting
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued

Oh yeah, Invisalign.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: monkeyswima on August 06, 2008, 12:23:42 PM
ya i think those would help if you really really really badly want it
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 06, 2008, 12:26:52 PM
Oh, spiffy!
I may need to search costs for that.
But I probably won't be able to get them unless I most definitely get a part.
Braces were expensive enough, my grandparents had to help pay for them, and I don't want to them to have to pay for more extra unless there is a very good reason.

Yeah, I am going to take like a million pictures trying to decide.
Hopefully, I'll get some good ones.
My only problem is, it's not very sunny.
So I'll try a faint smile, outside, so it's a little serene and a bit nice.
And then I'll just wing it.
Since it's homemade, I can take a million or so.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: monkeyswima on August 06, 2008, 12:29:45 PM
ya im going to do a homemade pictures to probably where theres a clear spot on the wall... no light switches or posters or pictures
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 06, 2008, 12:30:34 PM
i think a simple smile without th braces being shown is good enough
I dont think they really care if you have braces or not
if they really can see you
as the character the movie people will pay for it to be fixed....
or you can take it off for a little while
then you can show your smile  ;D
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: monkeyswima on August 06, 2008, 12:31:32 PM
can you take off braces?

can you take off braces?

Maybe for special reasons.

well dont people with braces use retainers at night?
i dont really know if you can remove them or not?
but if oyu do have braces and cant take it off an they gave u a callback
you atleast have to let them know you have braces
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: shadowbender on August 06, 2008, 12:35:53 PM
Yeah I always wondered what they would do for a situation like that. Maybe they have you take off the braces, and also pay for something else like Invisalign, all just in time for filming.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: monkeyswima on August 06, 2008, 12:36:07 PM

Oh yah, since some us were still wondering about the minor but important characters, I had them clarify by email about auditions for those characters and once again, its looks pretty hazy :(
This is the reply I got:

I do not know at this time as to whether or not the small roles will be open to actors access submissions.  However, the only role for which thelastairbendercasting.com website applies is ?Aang?.

Yeah that's true. But we have to continue a thread with all of us in it. I mean, with gone really far.

For the people who want to audition for the secondary charatcers, I say to audition for the available charatcers, and then maybe they'll have you in mind for another character, and then have you audition. :-\

It does. Trust me I called and asked and other ppl called and asked if you care to read the other board over, which I'm sure you don't lol, you will find the evidence. I suggest to stop asking questions cuz u'll only get confused more. When talking to multiple different sources they might not all know the same information. But I called Gail Levin myself and the associate who anwered the phone told me they are looking at everything that comes through the door. I asked SPECIFICALLY about the actorsaccess address and she said yes, send it there. Our stuff will get looked at. I'm trying to give you some comfort here....

well seriously this is why I got confused i was asking alot of people and they were telling me different stuff...

Most likely they will look at ur video tiffany, you know they can't pass up the opportunity to find THE ONE. Casting directors are very curious ppl. lol
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 06, 2008, 12:54:36 PM
cool it's [email protected]

On a different note, I was reading back on this forum on some pages I missed and saw that iamkatara called and got a different address to send her stuff too and they told her you might need an agent. So I called the number myself and got the paramount operator. I told her I was trying to reach Gail Levin and she directed me to her office. Here's how the convo went.

"Casting?"
"Hi, I'm calling in regards to an audition that was posted on actorsaccess for the movie The Last Airbender,"
"Uh-hmm."
"Is Gail Levin looking for submissions to the address that was posted?"
"Yes she is."
"She is? So do you need an agent to send stuff in?"
"No, we are looking at everything that comes through the door."
"Alright. Good to know. Thank you."
"You are very welcome."
"Bye."
"Bye"

So everyone who was worried, don't. And no more calls. Which I think are dying down anyways. You should all feel good about sending stuff in now. ;D

so basically this was what HE did...hopefully everyone sees it and
no one gets left out..
and yes I guess that means they looknig for others too
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: NinjaBlank on August 06, 2008, 12:55:13 PM
That's nice to know...
Btw, what if the other "Auditions" thread continues... and the people continuing it don't really care if there's another one or not...what happens...o0.

As for the other thread, we'll just have to see. If people start splitting up and posting in both, maybe I will lock the older thread.

This thread is a great continuation and is providing or clearifying the audition process.

As for the other thread, we'll just have to see. If people start splitting up and posting in both, maybe I will lock the older thread.

This thread is a great continuation and is providing or clearifying the audition process.

Phoenix Moderator! It is an honor to be in your presence. :o

I agree, this is great continuation of the auditioning process. Very great indeed.

And that would be so funny if they thought Momo was the Avatar.

Exacatactly.
Most helpful.

And I've been taking some pictures for my headshots, and so far, nothing...

I don't have nice windows in my house, and it is not very nice and sunny outside.
It's actually quite bleh.
...Terribly, truly, bleh.
But I've discovered some good lighting.
And I've been practicing my smiling while I chill.
Yeah, a little silly, but helpful.
Been trying to think 'Katara' too.
Just in case.

I don't really know about the braces, but if they wouldn't pay for me to have them taken off, then I would, for a part. I want it that much that I would live in Alaska for the weeks we have to film there.
I've had reoccurring dreams about it!
I'm so impractical, but so optimistic.


THE PHOENIX MOD!
WE MUST ALL BOW IN THE PRESENCE!
*enthusiastically bows*

And you, HappyElectrons, are clearly one of the most helpful in all of the avatarforumdom.

Just try and take the best pictures as you can. It's stressful, but just try your best. You can do it. :)

how many pictures do you put in your auditioning material?
1 or 2
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued

I'd put 2 1 smiling with teeth showing another without

Post by: Alana1991 on August 06, 2008, 01:59:41 PM
Yeah, thanks again happyelectrons.  ;D


So the deadline for everything is Sept 2? And They aren't casting Azula yet or Suki but will probably post the auditions for those roles on actorsaccess? Sorry If I'm being annoying right now, I just skimmed through the old thread real fast so I'm just double checking.

I'm still thinking of sending the stuff in anyway, but I probably wont have time for professional headshots. :-\ But I really don't know what to do for the tape, wjich is bad, there's only so much time. ???

Alana for the video...
I guess you can do anything in it...
Happyelectron said that when she talk to levin
they said they looking at anything....
so I guess anything goes then lol....
except for Aang...
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Alana1991 on August 06, 2008, 03:04:19 PM
alright, thanks.:)


I must look for Azula lines...I thought I had  some, but since season three is done I should use some of those ones maybe. As for Suki lines, I might use some from her first appearance. Or I could do something original, but not sure if I'd have enough time. :-\

just in case *goes to asn*

*comes back*

Darn, no new transcripts. -_-...I guess I'lljust use some old ones *or watch DVDs :p*
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: shadowbender on August 06, 2008, 03:12:10 PM
Yeah, ASN is probably the best place if you want lines to have. I suggest, Alana, that you do lines from Suki's first appearence, because I think that best defines her, you know?

As for Azula, maybe that one scene in the episode of "The Chase" where she says "Do you really want to fight me?" and stuff like that. Another good scene for her would be her first appearence talking when she says "Do the tides command this ship?"

I think those would be good lines.

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Alana1991 on August 06, 2008, 03:17:19 PM
Ok, thanks. :) Yeah, those are good Azula lines..I was thinking the tide one actually or when she reunites with Iroh and Zuko in that episode...I was also thinking maybe the season two finale. She's sort of hard, she has a lot of good lines.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: shadowbender on August 06, 2008, 03:18:54 PM
She does have a lot of good lines. What might really help you get the part would be when she has that mental breakdown at the end of Season 3. :-\
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 06, 2008, 03:24:59 PM
it would be good if u can react azula in the crazy scene
it will show like 3 emotions
angry, crazy, and sad lol

I did the Zuko lines in ASN when he defied his father
the
"im here to tell the truth"

and for Sokka I did the library scene
when they found the info for the solar eclipse
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: shadowbender on August 06, 2008, 03:29:52 PM
Nice scenes. :D

For my Zuko video, I might do some lines in Season 1 where he's very focused on capturing the Avatar, intense scenes from Season 2, and his transformation in Season 3. And then I'll do the neccesary sides.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Alana1991 on August 06, 2008, 03:31:24 PM
Those are good scenes, Gotrice, especially the Zuko one.


OH! That would be awesome! Thanks! *writes that down* I loved her insanity in the last couple episodes.

Southern Raiders:

Isn't it obvious? I'm Celebrating! I'M ABOUT TO BECOME AN ONLY CHILD!!!! XD

How about the betrayal scene in Boiling Rock?  ;D


Good luck Shadowbender, that sounds like it'd be good.  ;D


Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 06, 2008, 03:33:42 PM
i also did 2 monologues so I guess those 2 were ok lol
Sokka-I love farting monologue
Zuko-Rain over me
xD
both really reflects each of their lives lol
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: shadowbender on August 06, 2008, 03:35:10 PM
The Southern Raiders one and The Boiling Rock scenes would excellent, because those lines show how evil she is. ;D Definately do those. ;)

And those two monolouges would really help GotRice. ;D
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Alana1991 on August 06, 2008, 03:35:56 PM
Farting monologue? So you sent that? lol! That sounds very Sokka-ish. Good luck.


If you don't mind me asking, what's the Rain over me one?



ok, cool. thanks for the help!
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued

Did you send in your's yet GotRice, or are you going to?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 06, 2008, 03:40:30 PM
well actually Im just waiting for my head shots to be done lol....
everything else is done though so once I get my pics its off to
Gail Levin...
Hope I get an actual callback lol

well the "rain over me"
is about appreciating who you are
and appreciating life....
i think thats what I understand when I read it lol...
and I think this kinda what happened to Zuko lol
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: shadowbender on August 06, 2008, 03:42:38 PM
Oh, okay cool. ;D

I hope I get a callback soon too. Everyday I wake up and think to myself "I wonder if I got a callback?!"
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: avatarluv13 on August 06, 2008, 03:43:32 PM
i hope atleast some of us get a callback!
and atleast 1 of us get a role in this movie! ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: shadowbender on August 06, 2008, 03:45:19 PM
There are a lot of people on this forum, so I the chances of one of us getting a role are kind of high.

I really want to send this fast so i can resend again
a week before september 2...
lol

I was eating chinese food today
and I got a fortune cookie..

This is really random, but I think we lost some people that were on this forum, like Riz_fo_shiz and Skander. Remember them? Excuse my randomness.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued

Just wondering. :-\

Do you guys think I should start making my video. I was waiting for them to call me back to tell me what to do, but do you think I should start making it?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: avatarluv13 on August 06, 2008, 03:58:26 PM
lol yeah i kinda stopped being on this for a few days too...  :)
but i wuz juss really nervous bout everything...!!
lol
and i was wondering if anyone knew how to use a Lexar portable memory holder thingy?
cuz mi printer ran out of ink so i cant print my new version of my resume.
it now says what movie this is for and what role.  ;D
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: shadowbender on August 06, 2008, 04:03:28 PM
I don't know how to use "Lexar". Sorry. I created my resume on Actor's Access, and then I sent that and everthing else to Gail Levin electronically. Does that help?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: monkeyswima on August 06, 2008, 04:06:30 PM
hey guys won't be on for a while so buh by email me sides!!! and does actors access have a template for a resume?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: shadowbender on August 06, 2008, 04:09:34 PM
Oh, alright, Bye! :)

And yes, Actor's Access does have a template sort of thing to make a resume. I don't know if you can print it or not, but I suggest that you use it, it's very easy.

Well we'll see you when you get back. See you later! :)
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 06, 2008, 04:29:22 PM
well it did say they prefer hardcopies...
and if your resume is crap like mine lol
and your only gonna rely on your headshot
i suggest do a video lol
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: ilyz on August 06, 2008, 04:36:44 PM
i'm not sure if anyone answered the braces question...
they don't really care if you have braces :) they look at your face overall, and braces won't be a problem to remove while filming. you can take them off with a nailclipper, but that's not recommended. your dentist will get mad ^_^
just saying, that's how easy they are to remove, and won't cause any sort of problem. so smile all you want :)

also, i have a question that was posted on the "old" thread, and i didn't know if it got answered or not ^_^
I have fringes (or bangs, think of how Mai has hers) and I don't know if I should leave them as is, or push them back so reveal my forehead. I think i look weird without my bangs, but that's probably because i'm so used to them :D
any input is appreciated :)
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: vamptasticavatar on August 06, 2008, 04:40:08 PM
Just keep calm, Rupert Grint sent his video and stuff in late, but still got the part

Panic = Confusion, Confusion = People Panicing even more and the cycle continues over and over

But he did that on purpose to show his likeness to Ron
...unless your trying out for Sokka I don't know how well that would work out :\
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 06, 2008, 04:45:25 PM
um ilyz I read somewhere before that your hair has to be atleast pushed back
and that your face has to be shown in your pic...
so they will take a good look at your face..
but i really dont know about bangs...
i think its ok because you really cant push it back lol
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: ilyz on August 06, 2008, 04:48:22 PM
thanks GotRice :)
i was thinking about trimming them a little. they aren't exactly in my face or anything, they reach my brow. but still, i'm iffy about it :O
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: vamptasticavatar on August 06, 2008, 04:51:01 PM
If your going to don't forget to get headshots and make your video till after
otherwise they will be like
"wait...you don't look the same"
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: monkeyswima on August 06, 2008, 04:52:47 PM
um hey im temp back i want to kno wif i can wear a headband like aang did in that one epi well i think it might help me with looking like a character
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: ilyz on August 06, 2008, 04:53:31 PM
:) i was planning on taking / making my video on the same day!
just so i don't look different, like you said :)
and i think you can wear a headband in your video.

um hey im temp back i want to kno wif i can wear a headband like aang did in that one epi well i think it might help me with looking like a character

Hey I was thinking the exact same thing. But I'm pretty sure it isn't a good idea. The casting officials probably want to see you fully.

um hey im temp back i want to kno wif i can wear a headband like aang did in that one epi well i think it might help me with looking like a character

The only thing I'm thinking is that was not until the 3rd season
And for the first and second you would just be baldo with an arrow
so they probably don't want headbands
but thats just what I'm thinking

Of course, you'll most likely get paid and ...WOAH.
Had not even thought of that.
To get your dreams, and paid too.

I have headshots!
Most are good, I think.

How?
LOL, I have no clue how to...

And no, my sister made me beautiful and did my hair and stuff (she was surprisingly good) and we had a little photoshoot in my yard.
The photos aren't professional, but will hopefully do.
I got three different photos in 8 by 10 in size, with a thin white border, in hopes of making it look professional.
And I'll have to go get the camera to get it on my computer, but I edited out the scar on my forehead, lol.

(http://i37.tinypic.com/28s4y8m.jpg)DOS

(http://i38.tinypic.com/wjidt2.jpg)TRES (I ended up cropping my chest out of this one...)

But there we go.
I edited my scars and such out, and gave them a thin white border.
Overall, I like them.

1 Who do you think I could play?
2 Which one do you like best?

Post by: Bright.123 on August 06, 2008, 08:35:35 PM
Yeah, lol.
I've been working on my tan, but I've been busy with... well, everything under the sun, bleh.
(OH! That pun was not planned, but now that I realize it... so intended.)
And it's been cloudy where I am.
But hopefully, I'll tan up, and if they like me, I will get some colored contacts and a spray tan if I have to!
And people tell me either Suki, Katara or Ty Lee are my best bets.
And I am happy with any of them, most definitely!
I don't know who to hope for the most though, lol.
Thanks!
I've never thought of myself as pretty.
And the photography.. well, that's my sister.

So most of you all like the last one best?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: endurancekarmatiffany on August 06, 2008, 08:50:48 PM
I like the last one too
you're really pretty :D
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 06, 2008, 08:51:40 PM
yes i like actually the 2nd one and last one
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 06, 2008, 08:57:34 PM
Yes, I think the second or the last one too, actually.

And you all need to stop thinking I'm pretty, I'm really not, I just manage to fake it.
It's either a talent or a skill I've developed overtime.
Not sure which.

And yeah.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued

Post by: Bright.123 on August 06, 2008, 09:06:33 PM
Same here, avatarluv!
But I'd die to be anyone, really, so just this oppurtunity makes me giddy.
I'm also going to send copies to agencies.
That's the key, right?

And no, I got one of each professionally printed.
Well, Costco.
But they are 8 by 10 in with a thin white border.
Looks real professional and all.

I'm prouded.

Any of you all have any headshots to post or anything?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: ilyz on August 06, 2008, 09:08:23 PM
hah i don't have headshots yet, just regular pictures my sister took of me :)
maybe i will post them somewhere to see if i can play anyone ^_^
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 06, 2008, 09:09:17 PM

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 06, 2008, 09:11:36 PM
Yeah, homemade works well for me.

And if they're jut regular, you can make them fancy.

I mean, that's all mine are.

Of course, my sister also did my make up and hair (reminder: never let her touch my hair again. PAINFUL.) and she chose the setting, but it's pretty simple.

You all should post yours!
I did tinypic to host my images and then just used the copy thing to put them in here.

oh yeah i wanted to say this in my last post but forgot.
i think you would make a good suki since you hair isnt that long.
well it doesnt look long in the picture but you know how pix can be. lol
how long is your hair?
mines bout mid-back.  :)
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 06, 2008, 09:18:45 PM
I do that constantly.
I'm like... wait, what was I going to say here?

But yeah, my hair is actually rather longish, around my chest, but if they wanted me to cut it, I'd gnaw it off with my teeth if I had to.

And GotRice, you could definitely be someone.
If only I remembered the name...!
It wasn't Zuko, but I think it was someone important, or at least, kind of important!

I know Morgan Benoit isn't Zuko, but randomly, he would've been good.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued

Post by: Bright.123 on August 06, 2008, 10:03:50 PM
GotRice, you could be a male supermodel with those smokin' looks, lol.

And if you like avatar, you are automatically pretty.
I speak the truth.
Do not deny it.

You all are all pretty.

AvatarLuv, you're cute, I think you'd make a good, what's her name, um..  Jin? Girl who Zuko bonds with? Scar on her leg? I don't know, you just kind of remind me of her. And you also look like Jennifer Garner, by the way.

ailyz, you look like katy perry in a good way. you've got gorgeous lashes. I'd think you could be Jun. The girl with the lizard hunting thing.

IToph, you're so pretty, i love your skintone. definitely a katara skintone or something. maybe yue too.

Everyone should feel free to post pictures.
But if you don't want to, well, yeah, don't.

Post by: Bright.123 on August 06, 2008, 10:09:43 PM
I feel special.
I get everyone agreeing with me, lol.

I'd especially like to be like Suki, just so I'd get to kiss Sokka, but it'd rock to be Katara, I mean, it's Katara, and just as cool to be Ty Lee, and just as cool to be absolutely anyone.

Do you all think I should make a video?
I don't have anything to put it on though...
So I guess that is out.

Maybe I should write a letter or something...
Eh, maybe that would too pushy or annoying or whatever.

And Gahhhh, yes, Zuko is gorgeous.
It'd be awesome to be Mai to be able to...
Can't even imagine, lol.
So hot.
But yet so animated....
FANGIRLICIOUS.

The problem with me is that I bet they will kill the scar... MY LOVELY SCAR.

And yeah, acting is a big part.
Say, I may not look a whole lot like Katara, but if I have ahmazetastic acting skizizills, then I could totally get the part.

And for the video, I don't have a DVD or anything to burn it on...
Issues, issues, issues.

Oh, FF, I'm sure you is not gay. Even though people assume half the male actors who are not famous are...

I bet you did excellent, IToph, I have faith in you and your performance!

And I've never actually joined ASN.
I'm too lazy.
But I guess I could play toph, if I had pale skin, dark hair and blue eyes.
The only similarity is that we're both short.
I'm 5'2".

Oh, FF, I'm sure you is not gay. Even though people assume half the male actors who are not famous are...

I bet you did excellent, IToph, I have faith in you and your performance!

And I've never actually joined ASN.
I'm too lazy.
But I guess I could play toph, if I had pale skin, dark hair and blue eyes.
The only similarity is that we're both short.
I'm 5'2".

oh i get it now. lol

If you're going for Aang you'll need to send the Contact info so they can call you up if you get the part.
If you're making a video and you're under 18 you'll need the video consent form.

So far I've only heard that that website is only for casting Aang, for your other Characters you send them to Gail Levin at Actorsaccess.com.

lol probably not...

My first audition letter was one that I put together by calling in (before actorsaccess.com gave out resume info) and deciding what I thought was important :)

My second audition letter was one from actorsaccess.com, and I followed their resume info and created a picture-perfect resume and headshot and sent that in.

Now I'll have to send in a THIRD one with a video included!! aaagh :P I'm a looney, eh?

Bright how are you planning on video taping yourself just wondering...

cause Im thinking if I should just redo my audition thing....its kinda long 7 min estimate...
sooo
and Im also wondering if I should do the sides rather than a monologue and a script...
what do you guys think should I just redo
and do the sides...or just leave it...
hmmm i want it to be at least 4 min or less grrrrr

Don't even ask GotRice.
It will involve bring a stack of chairs to my yard.
Balancing and presetting the camera on that.
And then trying not to die while I do that.
Hopefully it will work.
Probably, it will not.
Oh well, I'll harass my friend into camera-holding.

Yeah, my video is probably going to be pretty short.
I'm guesstimating around, let's say...
3-5 minutes.
Yeah.
Make sure to say your name in the beginning and all that jazz!

Post by: ilyz on August 07, 2008, 02:17:49 AM
well as long as they see some acting skilllllz, right?
i'm pretty sure all of your vids are great :D
so i need a suggestion:
right now, i'm trying to figure out who I should be trying out for
i'm going for katara (and i'm sure i won't get the role, but still xD)
and for suki, since people say I can pass off as her.
ANNND Mai. even though she doesn't come out until like, book two. should i cut it down, or just not audition as one, or what?
anyone have any suggestions?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 07, 2008, 04:00:09 AM
Mochi, I would suggest you find a role you want to play/think you'd be good at and go for it. You could look at a character list or watch the episodes, and see if a character looks and acts like you. If you cant think of anyone, you could always try for an extra, or something.

we should post videos. i think it would be interesting to see what other people are doing. Especially because you guys are saying yours are 4+ minutes and to make a good video that long it takes forever... I'd go into greater detail but I dont feel like making everyone freak out. I might just have high standards because I've made a lot of videos.

Ilyz I would suggest auditioning for whoever you want to play. Idk if you'd want to send all those in now, because they said they were only considering the 4 main roles, but its up to you. At worst they'd just not consider the other roles right now, and you'd have to resend

YES!!! if i can help one person feel better, I've done my job. :D

Most likely they will look at ur video tiffany, you know they can't pass up the opportunity to find THE ONE. Casting directors are very curious ppl. lol

You've done an outstandind job Happyelectrons. You've made a huge difference in the forums, and if I ever get a part in the movie, I will tell everyone that Happyelectrons helped me and many others find auditions.

Absolutely. same with me! Thank you sooooo much for your help :)
i feel so much better now about sending in a aud material

aww shucks... ;D.. thanks guys.

yeah this thread is on the same track as being as long as the last one. still over the 10 pages a day mark. lol

But yet so animated....
FANGIRLICIOUS.

The problem with me is that I bet they will kill the scar... MY LOVELY SCAR.

And yeah, acting is a big part.
Say, I may not look a whole lot like Katara, but if I have ahmazetastic acting skizizills, then I could totally get the part.

And for the video, I don't have a DVD or anything to burn it on...
Issues, issues, issues.

GotRice is the sides master.

Ok, I don't have anything to burn the DVD onto.
Should I just send my headshot and resume, without a DVD?
Or should I wait until I can?
Or should I send now, with headshot, and resume and send again later, when I have the ability to burn it onto a DVD or something to send it with?

AND WHICH HEADSHOT SHOULD I CHOOSE?

Remember guys, keep what your doing you know...low key. You don't want to get caught.

This might sound weird, but the reason I'm not doing the side stuff is because I'm afraid they'll find out and that will lower my chances to get the part. Sorry, I don't mean to sound stupid.

It was cool seeing you guys like, almost in person with the photos. I think you guys will all do great! :D

well shadowbender if we couldnt actually use the sides
then that showfax.com site would have been sued by now lol
cause they were selling all those things...
and since actorsaccess.com is a legit site and they said showfax is also
legit...
then I think you can really use the sides if you want...
Im just gonna use the sides now because my thing is really long
i want it short, simple, and that just grabs you...
mine was like long lol 7 min....
and I dont want to bore them lol
lol
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: shadowbender on August 07, 2008, 03:09:04 PM
Well, the reason I'm worried we'll get caught is because we have to pay for those, and we're just sharing them without paying or anything. I like how you guys are helping each other out, but just a heads up...

Hey everyone! Has anything important happened while I was gone?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 07, 2008, 03:13:00 PM
not really we were just talking about auditions like usual...

and anyways Im just really scared about this...
do you have to include the consent forms or not?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: shadowbender on August 07, 2008, 03:17:55 PM
That's actually something I would call about GotRice, because on Actor's Access there aren't any forms and on thelastairbendercasting.com there are forms. The reason I think this is so is because on Acor's Access the first thing you do is send in your profile, and then maybe once they tell you to audition, then you sign the forms.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: shadowbender on August 07, 2008, 03:40:51 PM
I have another question. The deadline for submissions for the Aang auditions is September 2 or September 15. Do you think that goes for the other roles as well? I mean, I'm waiting to hear back from them saying to audition, but I just want to know if they weren't gonna consider me because It's past the deadline. Did that make sense?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 07, 2008, 03:51:31 PM
well Im putting in the forms just in case I guess lol
I mean I dont think theyll like say
"omg he signed the form...throw it"
Its just weird not signing it cause most of us are under 18...
lol

and as for the deadline stuff it said september 2
Im guessing the other characters as well but just
send everything early and fast lol....
we still have 3 weeks hopefully
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: shadowbender on August 07, 2008, 03:58:16 PM
I sent in my profile a while back, and I don't want to have to call three weeks from now and ask "Hey, are you guys gonna give me a heads up to audition?" and then they'll be like "Oh, you were supposed to send in a video with your profile." So, I'm thinking I should wait for them to give me the "O.K." but then again, I don't know. I'm still thnking about calling them to see if they got my profile and then maybe while I'm at it I can ask a few questions just to be safe.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: IToph on August 07, 2008, 04:00:43 PM
well I sent mine 2 days ago....

are you suppose to include the forms?....
 ??? ???

because if you do I need to resend again....
well maybe shadowbender call them and ask
lol
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 07, 2008, 04:03:01 PM
hmm Happyelectron based on the convo you had with Gail Levin office...
(I tried to call lol almost fainted)
they just said submit through actoracess lol

how would you answer this based on the information you got.....

Hi uhhh...Im trying to contact Gail Levin's office is there anyway you can direct me to her office?

Hi Im calling in regards to an audition that was posted on actors access for the movie "the last airbender"

Is Gail Levin looking for submissions to the address that was posted?

She is? So do you need an agent to send stuff in?
Cause I emailed a question at thelastairbendercastings.com
and they said that they are only doing open castings for Aang
and that they are only looking for experienced actors for the other 3 that was posted. is that true?

So if Im sending a video of me about auditioning for Zuko
and I dont have any acting experience....
would you guys still take a look at that?

Ok ...umm...about the video...do u have to use sides or can you use anything...like monologues, episode scripts, those type of stuff...

and in "the aang site" it said that you needed consent forms
and the contact information form
just wondering do you have to include it also for the other characters like Zuko and Sokka?

and last question..sorry for asking alot
but about the mailing address where should I send it...?
because both mailing adresses in actorsaccess
and "the aang site" kinda look the same...
so should I adress it to Gail Levin or to Paramount Pictures
Corporation?

i tried to start a convo with this question didnt work lol

or shadowbender or anyone can kindly call them lol and ask this questions just to really make sure
1 FINAL LAST TIME
really would appreciate it lol

well, technically
it will be sent tomorrow
should get there on monday
or if i can get my mom to run me to the post office,
saturday
its just sitting in my mailbox

and i included a consent form
just in case
you know?

i'd rather be over-prepared than under

and they will contact us
if they want us

Send it to Gail Levin!

i know thats why im having my mom buy them for me...
that way if they ask me a serious question about the sides at the audition i can show them that they are purchased.
cause your not supposed to be able to get them without buying them and i dont want any chance of ruining my shot at getting this part.  ;D

so yeah...
but that doesnt mean im not gona use the sides while im waiting for the official sides to reach me.  ;D ;D
lol

but once i get the real official sides im gona erase and evidence of ever recieving the fakes... O_O

I didn't make a video, at least, not yet.
I don't think I will, but I might.
I've been making videos and not sending them.
I'm just working on the sides, trying to really master them.
I'm not so good at the 'lets go to the north pole!'.
But I'm pretty excellent at the earthbender speech.
My ability to cry helps.

Babylou has.. *dun dun DUN* RETURNED!! MUAHAHAHAHA!!

So, switching to a new board.. Veerry clever. Nice idea, to whoever it was that did it.

Indeed, I have also noticed that Riz is gone.. Kinda sad, actually. So we gain a few and lose a few.. Oh well.

Preparing for school has become such a drag.. It was really nice; my mom kept taking us shopping.. But it got old. *sigh* I still have to do my homework.. Gahh.

I'm getting my hair done on the 10th.. 3 days.. And then I can get my headshots and video done! Yay! Which is a good thing for me.. I think I'm going to get the consent form filled out so there is no way that my package can be considered "incomplete." I am under 18 afterall, and I don't want to take risks..

So, how is everyone? Is the panic phase over, GotRice :P?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 07, 2008, 05:15:03 PM
yes my panic phase is over..all caise i missed one important INFo...
when HE called Gail Levin xD...

all you girls are lucky lol...
I have to memorize 3 sides lol hehe
Aang Sokka Zuko...
I got Zuko..and Aang...
Soakka is so big grrrr

and yes ill also include the forms so I dont miss anything lol

Hey, welcome back! :D Yes, I noticed Riz has been gone for quite a while. Gain a few lose a few lik you said. I'm doing good, not panicking. How about you?

If you don't mind me asking GotRice, who is "He".
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: thejohngalt on August 07, 2008, 05:19:48 PM
No, in the last Audition article, Riz said he was going to be away for a little while, between a few days and a week I think

Its at thelastairbendercasting.com, click the "how to apply", then click consent and release form, and then you will need an adobe opener to read and print it. ;D

Well, they put it under a site that is supposed to be only for Aang auditioners, but as it says that you have to fill it out if you're under 18.. I'm assuming it applies to all other roles too. I'm not willing to take any chances when it's something as big as this X|
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Sanhlami on August 07, 2008, 05:40:18 PM
Its suppose to be for Aang, but for all the characters, I don't THINK you have to resend your stuff with the consent but if you didn't send your stuff already then you should send it with the consent for just in case.

I mean theres probably lots of auditioners who sent their stuff before the thelastairbendercasting.com site appeared and I don't think the casting officials would want all the people who already sent their stuff to resend it because that would be a pain in the butt for them. Actoraccess.com didn't even mention consent forms on their site.

Oh okay sorry. Just wondering what HE meant. And as for stamps, I believe they're pretty cheap. I had to learn about all of this when I mailed M. Night Shyamalan in October (Probably wasn't M. Night, I think it was his agent.). And avatarluv13, I don't know if it's just for Aang. When submitting through Actors Access, I would say just follow the directions, and I don't think it says anything about forms.

and thelastairbendercastings.com said you needed them...
so Im guessing you actually need them...
bt if not

I suggest for the people who didnt hand it in yet
to fill those form out at least...its better to be over prepared
than under prepared lol....

Well, The Spiderwick Chronicles are mostly the same studios as "The Last Airbender", so yes they can do that. Also, Shyamalan said they will use tons of CGI, and the budget is supposed to be big. So yeah, they'll make something extroardinary. ;D

My mom kept saying that she was going to teach me to drive this summer.. She never did. I got away another year! Yes! (I'm terrified of driving..

Ok, I made a video, me doing all the roles, of Monty Python and HOLY Grail...

In all of them third question is the same/corresponds as it does in Monty Python

Scene, Crossing of the Bridge and Bridge Keeper

What is your name... all that, but instead of saying holy grail a put something else in, for ex.

Sokka the Brave- Defeat Firenation (Lives saying fav color is blue)

Zuko the Rebel - Regain Honor (fails question, says "Honor" as he dies)

Toph the Bandit - Teach and help the Avatar (fails question, "No" as she dies)

Aang the Avatar - Bring Harmony to the World (Lives, bridge keeper dies)

I think I might send this in, but otherwise I'll just do a scene from an episode in Book 1....

the introduction can be done in like 30 seconds easily. and the 2nd category you have is in your resume, you dont need it in your video too, or you're just repeating information--although you can if you want i guess...

Right, that would be a fun character Ilyz. :D So yeah, I would stay on Actors Access and maybe those roles will come up and state how to audition.

And Vamptasticavatar, nothing really big happened.

GotRice, I wish I could help, but I really don't know how.

wait wait EDIT
did you mean how to make your CD
into a DVD?
because it basically is :)
or you can go purchase the CD things that act like DVD's.
i think either way, you can get a video on it, and that's all you need :)

Post by: shadowbender on August 07, 2008, 07:01:48 PM
Sounds pretty easy. I thought it was a bit more complex than that. I might have to do that with my video.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Sanhlami on August 07, 2008, 07:05:30 PM
1st minute, introduction: name, address...
2nd minute: Martial arts experience and acting experience
3rd minute: Martials arts demonstration and show video of me doing tricks
4th minute: Demonstration of acting with given sides/monologues (and maybe a side by side video comparison of the demonstration and the actual scene)

It will vary around 4-5 minutes.



the introduction can be done in like 30 seconds easily. and the 2nd category you have is in your resume, you dont need it in your video too, or you're just repeating information--although you can if you want i guess...

For the introduction, I'm going to take my time in saying my information. I believe that you have to not only focus on the material that you show them, you have to show how yourself naturally during anytime you talk, if you hurry or just talk without emotions then they will think negatively. Its just what I think would help. ;D

actually you have to repeat it Matt cause hes trying out for Aang
it specifically asked to describe in your video martial and acting experience lol

yeah i forgot about that ;D that is weird though that they want you to repeat information.... normally they want things to go as quickly as possible. it might be because they are kindof having those aang vidoes as auditoins, and they want to keep them uniform and have all the information there so they can compare them easier.

well ok I used windows movie maker to edit my videos
then when I clicked publish as...
I pressed recordable CD...
but it said file is not supported....
but when I insert a CD-R into the computer and press publish as CD
it records fine...O.o
so how do you make it into a DVD...

LOL i just thought of something....
you know what would be weird
by the end of the 3rd movie the guy playing Aang might be like
16-17
and katara would probably be 20
it would be really weird
for a 16 year old kissing a 20 year old
as they did in the episodes
but then again the guy will be LUCKY LOL
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 07, 2008, 07:58:04 PM

money, fame, girls, "the Role", bragging rights,
plus kissing a girl 4 years older than him
LOL
how lucky can a guy get lol

Post by: Sanhlami on August 07, 2008, 07:59:35 PM
you bring up a good point. 1 more reason for me to try for the Aang role  ;)

... but they did that for harry potter. By the time harry potter movies are done the guy would be like 30. lol that is weird.

they've got a website up, publicly looking for aang;
now this whole ActorsAccess deal.
I have an account on there, but, WHAT is it exactly that we do through there concerning Gail?
Is she already accepting auditions/videos of other characters?
I'm sorry for being so ignorant here. ^^;; Can anyone in-depthly catch me up?

Where is this address that everyone continues speaking about?
I'm very bad at maneuvering around actorsaccess.com.
Edit: Oh, and only Katara, Zuko, and Sokka?
No info on more minor characters like Suki, or info on Toph, who might not be in the first movie?

avatarluv13, someone said you resembled the girl with the burn on her leg, i believe.
and hi jade! welcome :)
the address is found if you do this:
log into your actorsaccess account. go to the little thingy that says 'Breakdowns.' just let it search any city. it has some search box. in that box, type in 'The Last Airbender.' it will show a result for the Last Airbender. click on it, and you have all the information you need! it should say something like GAIL LEVIN and some address :)
hope that helps!

GAIL LEVIN
PARAMOUNT FEATURES CASTING
5555 MELROSE AVENUE, HOPE #206
LOS ANGELES, CA 90038

actorsaccess won't really help you unless you've got moolah. So I kinda ditched it, as have most of the others on this board XP. Well, at least the sending in resumes, pictures, and videos part.

Nope. No info over those characters, but most of us who want to play minor roles sent in stuff anyway. Not including me. I can't do that yet!

guys what does this mean...

IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT THE DATE OF BIRTH BE INCLUDED FOR ALL
ACTORS UNDER THE AGE OF 18.


it was on actorsacess.com lol
does it mean that we have to show are birth date somehow somewhere or were screwed?

You don't need martial arts experience, its just a plus. But you need to tell them about your acting experience and show them an audition scene. Thats pretty much it. (just follow the steps that is in http://www.thelastairbendercasting.com/docs/Audition_Instructions_Aang_only.pdf)

Thank you guys for doing so much research for these auditions O__O

I'm kinda anxious >_>

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: ilyz on August 07, 2008, 09:54:31 PM
GotRice; imperative means it can't be avoided. so you have to, by all means, give your birthdate somewhere, either in your resume, a personal letter, or your video.
and jade, i know what you mean! when i first got here, i had to start out with the Audition topic with over 240 pages! ah it gets blah after a while. hah it took me hours just to find this forum with all of this great info!
and Kolya, we all want to be in this movieeee so bad :) and that has made us really determined!

Just tell your parents you want to try for it, and that thousands of students have sent in their stuff already and it won't hurt or effect schoolwork or anything, its just  a movie you really want to be in.

Post by: happyelectrons on August 07, 2008, 10:21:24 PM
hmm Happyelectron based on the convo you had with Gail Levin office...
(I tried to call lol almost fainted)
they just said submit through actoracess lol

how would you answer this based on the information you got.....

Hi uhhh...Im trying to contact Gail Levin's office is there anyway you can direct me to her office?

Hi Im calling in regards to an audition that was posted on actors access for the movie "the last airbender"

Is Gail Levin looking for submissions to the address that was posted?

She is? So do you need an agent to send stuff in?
Cause I emailed a question at thelastairbendercastings.com
and they said that they are only doing open castings for Aang
and that they are only looking for experienced actors for the other 3 that was posted. is that true?

So if Im sending a video of me about auditioning for Zuko
and I dont have any acting experience....
would you guys still take a look at that?

Ok ...umm...about the video...do u have to use sides or can you use anything...like monologues, episode scripts, those type of stuff...

and in "the aang site" it said that you needed consent forms
and the contact information form
just wondering do you have to include it also for the other characters like Zuko and Sokka?

and last question..sorry for asking alot
but about the mailing address where should I send it...?
because both mailing adresses in actorsaccess
and "the aang site" kinda look the same...
so should I adress it to Gail Levin or to Paramount Pictures
Corporation?

i tried to start a convo with this question didnt work lol

or shadowbender or anyone can kindly call them lol and ask this questions just to really make sure
1 FINAL LAST TIME
really would appreciate it lol

wow. been gone just a few hours and all these pages. To answer your questions. They will look at your Zuko stuff regardless of your experience: "We are looking at everything that comes through the door."
For your video you can do whatever you want. Like Matt800 said, the actorsacces one is not an audition, it's a request for an audition. It's basically you just highlight your personality and maybe your acting if you want. And for that same reason you don't have to have consent forms if your under 18 for the actorsacces one. If they want you to audition they will contact you and have you make an auditon tape and have you fill out forms and such. The 'Aang site' is like your auditioning already but the actoracces is just a way to submit yourself for a chance for a live audition. I think somebody e-mailed that TheLastAirbenderCasting e-mail and it said that the other characters will be cast at a later time than Aang. So we have time. And if you're not auditioning for Aang send it to the actorsaccess one. Does that answer your questions??

Oh and just letting you know calling and asking these types of questions might hurt your chances if they recognize you as the caller. It shows a lack of experience and it could be potentially shooting yourself in the foot. This submissions thing is a waiting game, ask any actor. Just when you think that you probably didn't get it, they call. Don't worry, if it's meant to happen, it will. ;)

and like Kuromi's mom said, she would help me out however she could and do whatever she could.
she said if they called and wanted me to fly to Los Angeles for a live audition, she would let me go.

Well, that's kinda weak in itself, due to the fact that we used to live in L.A. and all.. Uhh, well, usually, mothers want to pull every possible string to make sure you succeed at your dream. Maybe this is one of those times.. I hope this is one of those times..

Last time I asked them about something "fame" related, they said no. Like one of those harsh "don't ever think about it again!" no's. It was about record deal stuffs.. Maybe they'll take it differently with acting..? And now that I've matured a bit and know the possibilities/chances that exist..?

the only guy I know thats for Sokka is GotRice and Riz lol

Welcome back babylou and I Am Katara! And Welcome new people.


That's sort of wierd, babylou, I started school early also, and I started school in California also then moved east and was younger than everyone else. :P

I don't know if my parent are taking this seriously also. I do want to act regardless, but my mom I know doesn't really want me in the hollywood crowd if I did get somewhere with it...I love her to death, but I hope she understands I'm not going to turn out to be this nutcase if it happened. ::) My dad I really don't know what he thinks about this. My brother already shot the acting idea down but he's my brother so he doesn't count. :P

It also looks like I'm gonna have to make my video and take "Headshots" with glasses,  contacts probably won't happen until September. :-\ Then this wierd feeling came to me last night saying I should wait and not make the videos now...almost like a gut instinct. I honestly don't know why, and it'd be risky to trust my instincts for the chance of maybe being wrong.  :-[ Then again, if what they said about casting the other characters later is true, it may not hurt to wait...(scared, don't know what to do!).

God, I sound crazy.  ??? :-\ :P :(

Alana, I know how you feel. I dont think my moms taking this whole I want to act in this movie thing seriously either which is kind of sad. Oh well, I'll just have to persuade her to let me do it!

Oh and whoever made this new auditions thread(I think it was itoph) good idea! The other one was getting super long.

Thanks everyone!! :D
all the food looks really good :)

Oh gosh I know what you both mean
I tell my dad and he's just like, "okay Emily." with that sort of kidding tone
But I think he actually figured out that I REALLY want to be in this movie
It would actually be a dream come true, no joke
It would be for all of us I think
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: thejohngalt on August 08, 2008, 10:40:45 AM
My dad acts the same
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Orica on August 08, 2008, 11:13:35 AM
My mom is just like that too.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: happyelectrons on August 08, 2008, 12:16:17 PM
lol. Happy birthday vamp!!!!! Hope it's a good one.

I kinda have to talk to my parents about it everytime I send a letter cuz my dad sends them for me. They've both known I've wanted to act since I was 8 and they both know I've been following this movie for a year and a half now. I don't think they have the heart to tell me I can't send my stuff in, but I tell them anyway that the chance of getting a callback is like really slim and they always say "But what if you do, what will happen?" But they support me no matter what and if I were to get a callback they would probably try and help me go, cuz i would be HEARTBROKEN if I wasn't able to. I still feel kinda selfish about it though cuz we live in Texas but I got a job so I could save up to pay for part of it.

my dad doesnt really know i want this.
only my mom does.
but i dont think she takes me seriously either...
it sounds like none of our parents take us seriously.
my mom dont take me that seriously cuz i wanted to be a singer last year.  :P lol
but i luv acting, singing, and dancing so if i dont make it in this movie ill try out for the second and same for the third...  ;D ;D ;D ;D
lol

Post by: endurancekarmatiffany on August 08, 2008, 12:28:15 PM
aww for those of you whose parents dont take these auditions seriously, i'm sorry :(
but i'm sure you'll make great audition tapes and everything and prove them wrong!
it wasnt hard for me to break this to my parents because as soon as I heard night was making a movie about avatar (long before we got any of this info) I was talking and talking about. my parents were like:  ::)
plus, ive done some video audition stuff similar to this so i guess my parents are used to it
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: al55 on August 08, 2008, 12:28:49 PM
my mom is supportive about it cuz i been begging her for almost two years now but as far as it concerns my dad he is all like yeah as if i was just telling him a joke or something :-\ good thing they are divorced :)
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Alana1991 on August 08, 2008, 12:43:30 PM
I'm sorry their divorced. :-\ And sorry for all the other's whose parents aren't taking them seriously. I guess we do have to prove them wrong.

I only made one other video, but it was for a Drama project and I really wasn't very good in it since I 1) didn't understand my pat well at the time (I didn't watch the Office at the time) and 2) it was my first time acting on camera and I was nervous. :p If I'm taping myself again I really need to rehearse and tape a lot and hope for the best. ::)
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 08, 2008, 12:44:26 PM
lol some of you guys are lucky you have understanding parents lol...

I just say "I wanna audition for...."

after that big fat "NO" comes lol
oh well good thing Im 18...
lol
Ill just tell my parents I guess if I got a callback
if not they will never know lol...
but If I do get a callback they would hesitatingly be happy to send me to LA
cause they know this is a once in a lifetime chance lol...
 ;D
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Alana1991 on August 08, 2008, 12:50:20 PM
Yeah they shouldn't say no to a callback. :P
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: happyelectrons on August 08, 2008, 12:51:01 PM
That would just be mean. lol

You know there just isn't much to talk about now that we finally got all this info. It'll probably get busy again though when callbacks start happening. (which i can't wait for!!!!)
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: al55 on August 08, 2008, 12:54:33 PM
ok guys so does anyone knows what episodes the sides take place - when katara said - we need to find you a water-bending master  - ? :) :) :)
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 08, 2008, 01:00:12 PM
I think they just made it up
cause i remember gran-gran is the one who sent those Katara and Sokka after Aang
OMG gran-gran might not be there lol....
they never really said we need to find you a water bending master in the episodes
my guesses it would be like the 1st or 2nd episode lol

anyways Happyelectron i sent you Sokka sides tell me if you got or not..
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Alana1991 on August 08, 2008, 01:03:00 PM
 happyelectrons: lol yeah it would be mean.lol.

al55, I think it's in the beggining. ;)

Question: If we didn't actually buy the sides, should we use them?  :-\ If I decide to make a Katara video as well I don't know if it would be a great idea or not.


NO Gran-gran? :o Wait, she migth be there, the fact she's related to Kanna helps Pakku break his own rules, right?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 08, 2008, 01:06:22 PM
well Im actually using it lol...
and I didnt buy it...
It was posted in showfax.com so I guess everyone could use it...
but if it wasnt showfax would be sued right now cause of those agreement things lol
its not like they gonna ask you...
"show me the receipt that you bough this!!" lol
and Im using it cause it will make my thing shorter lol
i need my vid to be 4 min or less lol
I dont want to bore them...
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: al55 on August 08, 2008, 01:08:59 PM
i tried to look for it in the avatarspirit net but no  - anyways thanks guys - noticed how the audition post died :-\
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Alana1991 on August 08, 2008, 01:10:06 PM
Yeah, good point. I hope they don't do that.lol.


WE CAN KEEP IT ALIVE! MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: dearelle on August 08, 2008, 01:14:27 PM
hey so is everyone just sending in audition stuff? like a hardcopy?
because i sent in an electronic one through actorsaccess.com but i didnt

i sent in an audition request thing.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: avatarluv13 on August 08, 2008, 01:53:36 PM

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: al55 on August 08, 2008, 02:36:41 PM
so i found this fan site and a really good story its based on the avatar after the war ended - aang and katara are sort of dating and then aang gives katara a necklace just like her mothers, he wants to marry her but she says that she is not ready for that kind of compromise yet. And then Zuko pops in to the picture and asks katara to help him find his mother- oh well find it out for your self they are really really good i liked them. Only read if you are a fan of Zutara love. :D ;)    just thought a little distraction would come in handy since theres not much to talk about :D

Wow...I just got off the phone with my mom, she actually sounded excited that I was auditioning. I'm kinda like... :o
Now we just need to keep it secret from dad, who is completely skeptical of these things like so many other dads are xD
thanks whoever replied to my other post...very comforting to know I'm not alone  ;D

And an invisible cake to the birthday girl!

anyways Happyelectron i sent you Sokka sides tell me if you got or not..

yeah I got 'em. Thanks :)

I thought that Sokka's sides would showcase his humor but it doesn't seem so. I really hope they choose somebody who can play his humor good.

Nothing much really happened while you were gone shadowbender, except Vamp's b-day is today and people are just talking about how their parents are for or not for the entire auditioning for the movie thing!
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: babyloutattoo on August 08, 2008, 05:35:25 PM
Why am I so lame? I could've spent this time practicing acting and stuffs.. But instead, I'm trying to learn a dance o.O

Oh well, I could put that in my video! Because some of the moves that some characters use are dance y! A good example of that would be Aang, right? Like how they were saying that dance experience was a plus?

Well.. I'm still lame TT.TT
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: thejohngalt on August 08, 2008, 05:37:31 PM

Yeah, my brother thought I was nuts since I didn't see yet. It'll kill at the Oscars, I'm sure. Except for Animated Feature. That has to go to Wall-E  :D
There may be some nutty people out there who have seen it 20 times. You just never know!

On a more topic-related topic: I got headshots, BOOYAH. In our video are we supposed to do like a monologue and such? Or just an intro...or whatever we want??

so i found this fan site and a really good story its based on the avatar after the war ended - aang and katara are sort of dating and then aang gives katara a necklace just like her mothers, he wants to marry her but she says that she is not ready for that kind of compromise yet. And then Zuko pops in to the picture and asks katara to help him find his mother- oh well find it out for your self they are really really good i liked them. Only read if you are a fan of Zutara love. :D ;)    just thought a little distraction would come in handy since theres not much to talk about :D

Link:  http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4410470/1/Maybe_A#@!

i like that story.. it was really really good..!!! XD
sry thats y i wasnt really on yesterday cuz i was reading it.
i got done reading it at like 2:30 in the morning!!  ;D ;D ;D
i cant wait to read this persons sequel to it..
tho from what i read its goin to be really..... intense. O_O
lol
but its still a good story.
but al55 was right... only read if you are a fan of Zutara love!!!  ;D ;D ;D
which i am so dont be hatin! lol jk
but really this person wrote some other stories and they involve some Kataang love so if you go to this link http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4410470/1/Maybe_A#@!*a you can go to the authors profile and he has 6 other stories and their all about Taang love, Zutara love, uummm wut ever you call Sokka and Suki love... ???, and Kataang love, and he said hes gona start writing another story based on MaiLee love... O_O . oh and he has a story on the Big Bang Theory. for those of you who would be interested in that.  :P lol jk
but really check it out!!
it definetly got my mind off all the stress from this forum and the nervousness of waiting for callbacks and everything else that came along with this audition.
which was a really good feeling!
so go check it out get your mind off this forum for a little bit and when your done come back and tell us what you think.  ;D ;D

Hey guys, what's up? Well first of all I'd like to say happy burthday to Vamptastic since I was practically gone yesterday. Also, Vamps, I love your signature. The Dark Knight is sweet!

Second, the Olympics Ceremony was amazing. Absolutely amazing!

And third, I started a new thread about what episodes should be in the movie. :D
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: iamkatara on August 09, 2008, 01:39:47 PM
I'm BACK HOME!!! so i should be on a whole lot more. ;D

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 09, 2008, 02:43:04 PM
Hooray! We're all returning from our vacations!!

I contacted thelastairbendercasting with a few questions, and I got some good answers, but most of the we already knew. Here's what I got:

-the purpose of thelastairbendercasting.com is to make it easier for children auditioning for Aang because they don't know how the acting world works ;) so it basically skips the "actorsaccess" step.

-it could take a month to receive a callback from actorsaccess, and they won't contact you if your resume isn't selected. :-\

-if your resume is selected, you will most likely be called by paramount, not emailed or snail mailed.

so if any other "gossip" gets out, I'll let you guys know! :)
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: thejohngalt on August 09, 2008, 03:17:55 PM
resume ???, you mean video and forms...
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: iamkatara on August 09, 2008, 03:19:33 PM
forms= resume and headshot
lol
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: shadowbender on August 09, 2008, 03:54:12 PM
Pirate_Jeff, you rock. I'm really not so worried about them contacting me. I was scared they weren't. But a month, that's great. I've still got time. :) But one question, What do you mean by selected resumes. I sent mine in with my profile which includes headshots. So what do you mean by selected resumes? ???
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: iamkatara on August 09, 2008, 04:37:01 PM
They select you if they want you to audition for them. The headshot/resume is just asking them if you could audition for them.  :)
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 09, 2008, 04:40:46 PM
Ack!
I missed no real new information, yet there are still about 10 bajillion pages...
Except for Jeff's contributions!

Ok, so I have till probably the end of September until anything.
So I wait.

I hope something gets leaked!

And I wonder if they select you, and you get chosen for a role, are they going to put you in some vigorous martial arts training?
I would think so, but this is all new to me.

And then, though it's obvious...

I'M BA-ACK!
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: ilyz on August 09, 2008, 05:15:11 PM
only the resume is going to be viewed??
are you sure it isn't the resume AND videos/ everything else we sent?

I'm sure they'll look at everything.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: vamptasticavatar on August 09, 2008, 05:26:07 PM
Is this just for Aang or for Aang, Katara, Sokka, and Zuko?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: shadowbender on August 09, 2008, 06:01:25 PM
I don't know if it's for all of them or just Aang. ???

So has anybody been to my new thread yet?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 09, 2008, 06:04:37 PM
Depending on where you sent it.
If you sent to Gail Levin, everything will be viewed and considered for everyone.
The other address is only Aang and just, I believe, what they told you to include on the site.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 09, 2008, 06:15:40 PM
Hey guys! Let me clarify!!!

I was asking them questions about other characters BESIDES Aang. Any Aang info is on thelastairbendercasting.com

So my answers are about Actorsaccess. So when I say resume I mean the one you sent to Gail Levin :) :) Hope that helps!
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: vamptasticavatar on August 09, 2008, 06:16:00 PM
So for Gail what if you want to try out for Suki?
(that is the only person in Book 1 I would want to try out for)

No info has been put out about suki or any other characters. If you'd like, I (or anyone) could email and ask them about other characters besides the main four.

Secondary characters are Haru, Suki and Jet, so ask for them and any others I forgot to mention.

They answer emails during the weekdays, so don't "over-email" them :P

What is suprising is that I was talking to an actual person over the internet, and he (or she) would answer questions in about 30 seconds

so i found this fan site and a really good story its based on the avatar after the war ended - aang and katara are sort of dating and then aang gives katara a necklace just like her mothers, he wants to marry her but she says that she is not ready for that kind of compromise yet. And then Zuko pops in to the picture and asks katara to help him find his mother- oh well find it out for your self they are really really good i liked them. Only read if you are a fan of Zutara love. :D ;)    just thought a little distraction would come in handy since theres not much to talk about :D

Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 09, 2008, 10:35:03 PM
BOYS AND GIRLS, I have good news and bad news.
Let's start with the bad news, so we can end on a good note.
BAD news: I emailed Paramount yesterday with the question about other characters besides Aang and they said:
"Thank you for your interest in this project.
 
At this time, ?Aang? is the only role that we will be opening up to auditions from the public via this website.  We will be casting other roles through live auditions with experienced actors, primarily submitted through agencies."
(Yes I did post this in another thread but I thought it was relevant to post it here)
So that seems grim....

GOOD news: I believe that answer was directed to people (primarily children auditioning for Aang) who don't know about actorsaccess, because I later emailed them and they said that it is still possible to be accepted for characters like Sokka and Zuko (the two I auditioned for :) ) and I presume Katara as well :). Very soon I will email them and ask about Secondary Characters, and you  guys will be  the first to know!!! :D

AND TO ALL OF YOU LURKERS OUT THERE!!! *...I'm watching you...* *...it is wrong to spy on threads, and you can never completely free your mind and spirit unless you are honest to yourself, and those around you...* *GET AN ACCOUNT YOU JERKS*  ;D
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 09, 2008, 10:48:26 PM
lol avatarluv13 you are so correct.
i'm the same way.

and jeff, you rock!

I agree with your thoughts that it's for those who don't have actors access, or any real professional means in the business. And I can't wait to hear more about secondary characters! Eventually, we will get there.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued

I'm going to assume they were hoping for a DVD, but you can most likely just use a CD.

Post by: Matt800 on August 10, 2008, 12:48:23 AM
yes we do, we know they are being cast for at a later time. Someone posted about it a few days ago. I you want to try for a character not currently being cast, just wait and submit when they call for them.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 10, 2008, 12:50:20 AM
was that an assumption,  or does someone have hard evidence?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 10, 2008, 12:57:31 AM
I am curious, but I don't want to annoy.

If Jeff feels like asking, he's welcome to.

But I don't have the nerve.

I'm relying on you all's information, because I don't want to irritate the poor bombarded people at Paramount Casting. I just have to trust they will see me as fabulous for someone, anyone.

Hopefully, our assumptions are correct, and we get hard evidence without any trouble for anyone.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 10, 2008, 12:57:54 AM
thats what paramount casting said. so yes it is "hard evidence." This is the acting business anyways, if they want you to know something, they will post it. At least wait a few weeks to give them a chance to get the information out... They are going to get annoyed, if you keep calling/writing with unnecessary questions. AND as some advice, if you keep contacting them they will realize who you are, and your chances of getting an audition will drop significantly. Looking like you have no understanding of how things work in the acting business is not a good thing.

actually, if you want to call go for it, even if they are annoyed by questions it probably wont affect their judgement of my submission. It might ruin your chances, but hey thats your decision.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 10, 2008, 01:03:05 AM
Matt, I haven't asked them yet. Also, I'm smarter than to send them emails from the same address as I gave them for my resume. And even if I do ask them, I think it would show an interest in the production, not a lack of understanding. Asking: "are you accepting auditions for other characters?" is not an amatuer question. I'm optimistic, so you don't need to worry about me :) Either way, if I get booted from auditions by asking questions, at least I've helped someone else make it.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 10, 2008, 01:10:53 AM
rgr that pirate jeff. I dont mean to be rude, and you seem like a smart guy.. I'm just getting irritated when I see people repeatidly post about emailing or calling with the same questions.  you're welcome to ask about the auditions for other characters, but they already said they will be doing them at a later time. I would suggest you just wait and see what information they release within the next few weeks, but its up to you. good luck.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 10, 2008, 01:18:03 AM
ok :) I'll wait and see what happens. They only answer questions on weekdays anyway, so I'll just wait for something new to pop up. What I was thinking is that it would be better to ask questions earlier on, before "everyone" knew about thelastairbendercasting.com
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 10, 2008, 01:31:16 AM
makes sense. If you want to email something on Monday, I would suggest thinking of everything you might want to know, and asking it in a clear way, so you wil get all your questions answered at once hopefully. As long as you do it clearly, and ask good questions it shouldnt be a problem.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 10, 2008, 01:42:29 AM
EDIT*
I did that once, only I did ask from the email address I sent to them in my resume ::)
They gave me a lot of good answers, but I'm not going to email them from that address again.

I think I will ask them two direct questions:
1. How do you audition for secondary characters? ie Jet Suki etc
2. How many resumes are selected for each character? (for my own curiosity)

*perhaps I should collect questions from other people in this thread as well.. just to lower the number of emails being sent in
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 10, 2008, 01:50:15 AM
i would suggest asking when and how to request an audition for secondary characters like they are doing on actors access for the 4 mains currently--just to get a specific answer.

For your second question, the answer is almost definitely, "as many as they like". They will audition people if they think they might fit the role. They are doing whatever they can to get the best cast possible. The only limit they'd probably have is  adeadline that they want to decide by. If you want to ask something about that type of stuff, i would go for something along the lines of, "about how many people have been requesting audiitons via last airbender casting and actors access and other non-agent means", or something like that. Orrr ask for the dealines for the other characters submissions. You might get something worthwhile out of those.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 10, 2008, 01:55:05 AM
ok! :) I found out a lot from my first email, so I'm not even sure I need to send a second one. Obviously, if anyone wants a part they should send in as soon as possible and be optimistic, but still sensible. So perhaps sending another email is useless anyway. I imagine their answers would be like this anyway:
1. Send to gail levin (and all the other info from actorsacces)

2. As many as we can until we find the right person.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 10, 2008, 02:03:41 AM
yeah, might be best to just wait and see what happens. If we need more information at some point we can ask, but I think we know everything right now already. at least i cant think of anything id want to ask...
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 10, 2008, 02:07:51 AM
:) Ok cheers! Thanks for talking some sense into me :P I guess all the excitement is just getting to me. Hopefully, someone gets a call soon (even if it's not me ;) ) I just want to know that things are moving forward, because the anticipation is awful!

Post by: Matt800 on August 10, 2008, 02:14:15 AM
yeah jeff, no worries, its tough to wait it out. I'm sure new information will come soon though.

Ilyz. I agree, it'd be fun to see peoples videos they made, to see what other people are doing, or to help people that are in the process of making them. I cant post mine because my friend filmed it and has all the stuff on his computer. I've got a lot of experience with making videos thouhg, so I'd love to give suggestions to anyone who wants to post their vidoes on youtube or something. I dont really want to give "new" ideas, because the video should be something you think up, but i wouldnt mind helping with the formalities, and stuff.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 10, 2008, 02:16:23 AM
haha that would be a good question for paramount..

do videos sent to actorsaccess boost your chance of being accepted, or are videos only viewed if your resume is acceptable? haha I'm starting to sound like Iroh
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 10, 2008, 02:20:31 AM
honeslty its a good thought, but I wouldnt ask that question. If they get a video right now im almost postitive they will watch it which would dramatically help your chances. You wouldnt want to ask, because if they were leaning towards not wanting vidoes, then they oculd decide to create a policy, which would make it harder for us to get auditions. Especially those of us with weak resumes, because the videos purpos is to show that even if you dont have a lot of experience, you can still act, and you have the personality to play the character. without that all they have is your picture and a short resume which doesnt say much about you.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: ilyz on August 10, 2008, 02:21:13 AM
i love iroh  8)
and yeah, it'd be nice to see what other people have come up with! like how they chose to present their scenes, how they dressed, the personality they used...ah there's so much to see!
if i had a video, i would definately post it up :)
just to see what i could improve on. Matt800, it would be great to see yours later on because you sound verrryyy expirienced!
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 10, 2008, 02:25:54 AM
haha thanks. honestly all i did was crank out some stuff in like 20 hours of solid work. ( i was under the impression we needed it submitted early). It was pretty cool, and I think it was good enough to get an audition, but if i had more time i think it couldve been like 10x better.  I just did the about me/why i want to play the character, then a scene from avatar, then some martial arts. I'd definitely like to help other people out tho because knowing how to make videos, makes it way easier.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: ilyz on August 10, 2008, 02:29:31 AM
i tried to make my scene, because, like you, i thought we had to send it in early. i want to send it in a few weeks earlier than the september date, but, ah nothing is coming out the way i want it to on the camera :(
maybe i'm just too picky. eep.
you organized your video verrry good :D it's great to know that all of us that are auditioning have someone to kinda give us some insight on the business and nudge us in the right direction.

lol yeah, Im new to acting too, but ive been working hard to figure it all out. I have some friends who are actors, and a bunch of random experience with business stuff so I've got a decent idea of what we need to do. But yea, everyone on the forum seems to be able to offer at least some help. It's been a really good resource. We should definitely try to get people to post vidoes, I think that would be really cool.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 10, 2008, 02:37:42 AM
I'm quite excited, because I read up on M. Night before I wrote it, and I filled it with puns and things that I thought he might like (or his casting director). So where I lack a video, I hope it makes up for it in my resume. :) the worst feeling in the world though is when you think about something you could have done better, so make sure you finalize it BEFORE sending it! For example, in my resume I wrote "previous karate experience" instead of "2 years of karate experience".... Oh well lol I guess nothing is perfect and things happen for a reason.. AAGH I'm sounding like Iroh again :P

Ey matt, you just did any martial art form right? Cause they want a "kata" which means form technique right?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 10, 2008, 02:42:36 AM
It depends on who you are auditioning for. If you want to be Aang, then do exactly what thelastairbendercasting tells you to do ;). for any other characters, however, it wasn't even specifically requested that we send in videos. So do what you think is best for other auditions.

haha that would be a good question for paramount..

do videos sent to actorsaccess boost your chance of being accepted, or are videos only viewed if your resume is acceptable? haha I'm starting to sound like Iroh

i sent in m resume and headshot through actorsaccess but if you want to upload a video, its gonna cost you i think.. like $11? or something like that. I forgot to do that and my parents aren't informed that i've even sent in an audition. (i'll tell them when i get a callback) so i didn't send in a video.

i'm hoping that they will choose me off of the headshot really. But i'm sure it wouldn't hurt your chances at all.

Post by: Matt800 on August 10, 2008, 02:43:47 AM
hey sanhalami, yea.... I think a kata is a japanese form or something... its so sad when people dont know about martial arts and use random associations ;D like i could spend hours talking about Shaolin, and gung fu, and various chinese martial arts and how most people have no idea what is actually true about them, but anyways... thats not really relevant. Sorry for the rambling, Yeah i did a basic martial arts form. Some northern Shaolin stuff, that they use for firebending.

:) thanks! Really you should use Snail mail though, because that's what they requested, and it's more formal. So you could send a DVD through the mail, and it'd only cost you postage! ;)

*Also, telling your parents might be a good idea! :) Parents are suprisingly supportive, and if you are honest with them, they might even have words of encouragement!

(wow I might as well change my name to Iroh..)

Thanks, I'll be working on my form technique this week. I'll be doing my own vietnamese martial arts form which is practicaly kung fu.

I wish I learned Ba Gau. It would be so cool if I knew Ba Gau and tried out for Aang. Damn I wish I knew about this movie last year. :'(

Goodbye for now! :D Remain optimistic, and wait anxiously for a paramount call!!!!

Post by: Matt800 on August 10, 2008, 03:02:47 AM
see ya jeff.

yeah sanhalami, bagua is pretty cool. I took like 6 months of it last year. Really though, I dont think they are doing too complicated of martial arts stuff for the movie, so its not too big of a deal if you arent really good. general experience is probably all they are looking for. Although i guess if you were pretty good, and had gymnastics or wushu training, you could do all your own stunts  ;D thats my goal if i get in the movie.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Sanhlami on August 10, 2008, 03:10:19 AM
Yah, I've been freelance practicing stunts for a while. I think I'll be able to master the basic four stunts and some other stunts before Aang audition ends. Man would that be awesome. I'm going to put some stunts in my video, I think it will help me with my [email protected] resume.

I think Martial arts will raise a slight amount of chance because the production company doesn't have to waste time and money with training the person if the knows martial arts already. hurray for both of us for knowing martial art.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 10, 2008, 03:16:08 AM
hah yea knowing martial arts is going to be a big help im sure, but not the deciding factor. So you actually do stunts??? what are the  "basic four stunts?" I have some basic gymnastics and wushu training, but id need a lot more if they wanted me doing crazy flips and stuff. Martial art movies tend to use a lot of flash, so id need to work on that if i actually wanted to do my own stunts.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Sanhlami on August 10, 2008, 03:20:52 AM
Basic four: Backflip (back movement), Frontflip (front movement), Aerial ( side movement), butterfly twist(twisting movement) [in my eyes these are the four basic]. I don't have any gymnastics or wushu training but I do go to gymnasiums and practice, and practice on mats at my dojo.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 10, 2008, 03:23:41 AM
yeah that'd help alot. you should throw those in your video if you ahvent made it already. i'll work on gymnastics/wushu to get good at stunts if i start getting callbacks.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Sanhlami on August 10, 2008, 03:28:38 AM
Cool, hope you get a callback. Well I have to go to sleep now. Its been nice talking to you about martial arts (which like you no-one ever gets what I'm talking about when I tell them about it)
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 10, 2008, 03:32:00 AM
hahah yeah time for some sleep.. good luck with your submissions too. I'm excited to hear who gets callbacks in a few weeks.

Post by: Alana1991 on August 10, 2008, 06:47:50 AM
Good luck everyone! :D

As Far as Suki and Azula roles, I'm gonna see if anthing apprears on actrosacces before I send anything in..sort of risky due to this time, but they said they are casting the other roles later so it could pay off. besides, it gives mre time to prepare and practice (I hope)...I also probably don't have time to make a video this moment unfortunately,I have schoolwork :-[

Since I'm a little shortie :[

I didn't know hellozombie was 5'8" o0

shes not 5'8" I am lol

and hellozombie is the future toph lol
and she said she was filipino so no offence
but all my filipino friends that are girl are short...
guessing shes like 5'4"

Nope, I'm 5'2" actually. Toph's exact height I believe, according to the official bio on her.

Have you seen the series?
All the information is in this discussion. you just have to read over, well, everything.
If you want to be considered for the main four roles (A, K, S, Z) send an headshot and resume to Gail Levin.
You might also send one just so you're there and considered.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued

yeah if you havent seen the series then your in trouble.
if you the fill in just read everyting...
like he said.
but yeah send in your stuff to Gail Levin.
they said that they wanted more experienced people to play the role besides Aang...  :'(
thats kind of a let down for me cause i wanted to audition for Katara... but im still sending in my stuff that way even if i dont make this movie i will still be there.
that way im at least getting a start in my acting career as a professional.  ;D ;D
so send in your stuff and hope for the best! :D ;)

regular post office

oh, then why not just say "through the mail?"

hmmm...
Im torn between choosing...
so you can send anything right?....

like monologues and stuff...
because Im having trouble with the sides....
they are good but its so short it doesnt really
showcase your acting...

and I really want to stand out...

so can you really send anything even if its not sides?

I believe so.
The sides aren't available to everyone, anyways, and if you want to send a video, you might as well do something you're good at.
And if you can do some form of gymnastic magnificence, go for it!
Good lucks!
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: thejohngalt on August 10, 2008, 01:10:22 PM
Well maybe make up your own little idea, like a skit....
However, in the Aang rules, says the audition is..........

1 Tell your name, birthday, and location
2 You "can" show a little kata or martial arts stance
3 Do One of the sides

My entire movie took about 1 min
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: IToph on August 10, 2008, 01:13:46 PM
lol haha but Im a girl cant really do Aang
or maybe... :D

Im actually going for katara but
see that video is so short...
they cant really see your acting...
and its all the same as the other aangs hopefuls...

Im just really unsure whether or not to do the sides
or monologues/script...
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: thejohngalt on August 10, 2008, 01:17:58 PM

I wonder how important the voice of the auditioner will be... Do movies usually do a complete voice over if they want? Aang's voice is pretty hard to match, my voice is a little deep but I can make the tone a little higher but it is still so hard to match Aang's voice.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: thejohngalt on August 10, 2008, 05:38:35 PM
hopefully, since the guy who does the voice of aang is 14, he doesn't look like aang and/or doesn't audition

Guys, don't mean to be the idiot of the forums, but if Gail Levin knew you guys would do that, that would really lessen your chance of getting a role. I mean, I understand why you guys would be mad, but if she found out about it...

Again, sorry, I just want all of you to at least have some kind of role.

We can all get along! It was a misunderstanding and now it's an understanding. Thanks for trying to help, shadowbender, and thanks for sticking up for us, thejohngalt. We're all just a bit anxious about the phonecalls, but if one of us makes it then we can be happy for him/her and then we can support them in their quest to be the next big star. :D Nobody is boycotting anyone, and nobody is being extremist.

Guys, all you have to do is follow the directions on Actors Access. You sed in your profile which includes resume, headshots, skills, and info about you. It never said anything about sending in a video right at this moment. They'll contact you and say you can send in a video to audition. All they wanted you to do was to send in your profile, unless you were auditioning for Aang, where you could send in a video right away.

AAAAAAGH we're turning against one another! It's audition fever!

Shadowbender's right, they didn't ask for videos. However, if you send one in, I imagine they'll watch it, although I'm not sure it'll make any difference as to whether or not you get a role. It's worth a shot though! :D
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: thejohngalt on August 10, 2008, 06:47:21 PM
They asked for only videos that show you reading the sides, stating your name, and if you want to show kata....
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Sanhlami on August 10, 2008, 06:47:53 PM
I think making a video will be one of the deciding factors IF you have a bad resume (like me  :'( ) and need to show that you have natural talent at acting and anything else that will benefit the production in making the best movie. but this is only for other characters

For Aang I'm pretty sure you HAVE TO send in a video.

Thanks for the sending the e-mail, but you can send in photo shots and a resume, but they have to select you to do a video for the audition. This goes for all the characters, unless you're auditioning for Aang and are sending in through thelastairbendercasting.com.

And yes, any day now someone could get selected, but it might be like a month, so we'll have to be patient.

Thanks for the sending the e-mail, but you can send in photo shots and a resume, but they have to select you to do a video for the audition. This goes for all the characters, unless you're auditioning for Aang and are sending in through thelastairbendercasting.com.

lol shadowbender
ok remember when happyelectron called gail levin's office...
they said that "they are looking at everything that comes to the door"....
im assuming that she really called and that you can send in a video...
Ill beleive  :D
i mean just in case if your resume is crap and you only have a head shot
a video that showcases your acting will help....alot
I mean a crap resume and a headshot
isnt really gonna do anything....

and besides shadowbender the thing you said about it
that you have to wait for a instruction for additional messages lol...
it was in that "ASAP box" if you take a look around every acting audition there...
that "wait for the people to contact you an send a video thing"
is basically in every one of the auditions there including not avatar...
so basically that was just a basic idea of how the acting job is done
that we have to send in things fast...
and its for the people WHO HAVE A GOOD RESUME and photo
they can wait for additional instructions...not us lol

but this is different this is like open auditions...
but most of us have crap resumes lol....
NO ONE is going to get an actor just based on how they look
I think.. :P
because really its all bout how the acting thats really important....
and how a person can portray them...
and if you look like the character thats a major big plus...

i totally agree w/ you got rice if we dont have a good resume and one head shot we really need something that says that we can act it.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 10, 2008, 08:44:24 PM
thanks for all the info but i dont kno wat a ruseum is and wat address do you send it   ???

http://www.actorsaccess.com/projects/?view=breakdowns&breakdown=155667&region=1

you have to make an account kiss then after that go to the breakdowns-Los Angeles
skim through it....
it should say "The Last Airbender"...it should be in pages 1-3 but maybe more
so just look there...
and a resume is a list of experiences youve done...
and as for this movie youll have to make an acting resume...search it up in google
the mailing address is in the site....

ok another thing....
the closest auditioning process that this movie has on other movies
is Harry Potter's way of open auditions...

read it basically its the same thing....

The positions (or rankings) are listed right below your Username. The rankings correlate to the titles of Night's movies in chronological order, The Happening currently being the latest released film and the highest rank. Of course, The Last Airbender will eventually be the highest ranking.

EDIT*
Ok :) I just got back from The Mummy, and it was ok.

I'm excited to say that I have a good resume, but I didn't send a video. I have a good headshot, and I've been told I look like Zuko. :D OPTIMISM!!!! hahah I'm probably more like Aang in real life, but portraying such a comlicated character as Zuko is the fun of acting. GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE!!! Keep practicing your bending! ;)

* I thought it was funny how you can see the links behind The Mummy and Avatar. For examle, The Dragon Emperor = The Phoenix King. Water, Earth, Fire, Air = Water, Earth, Fire, Wood, Metal. (of course, Avatar's elements are the actual ones, but Mummy can't copy them ;) ) Chinese culture is fascinating!

if you look like zuko can u post a pic of your self pretty please lol

if they become  huge superstars lol
so I can at least say I know him weeee  ;D ;D

Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 11, 2008, 12:30:32 AM
haha I'd love to, but ironically enough it's on my other computer that doesn't have internet :(

Either way, I'm 6'4" (pretty tall, but if you watch the series [at least the 3rd season] Zuko is tall too)
I have messy red/brown hair
I have gray/blue eyes (and I do wear contact :) )
I have the same facial features (minus the scar, of course :P ) as Zuko

Haha trust me, if one of us made it, you'd know. The forums would be roaring with "I GOT A CALLBACK I GOT A CALLBACK!! GAILBENDERS, HOLD  BACK! I GOT A CALLBACK!!!" etc... ;D
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 11, 2008, 12:45:37 AM
ahaha daaang jeff you're 6'4?? hopefully your acting will be good enough that that wont matter because they are probably looking for someone 5'8-6'1. Zuko is tall, but really only tall compared to like 14 year old girls. No worries though, the guy who played gimli in LOTR was 6'1 soo if you fit all the otehr characteristics it shouldnt be a problem.

Btw I wasnt a big fan of the mummy. Really nice graphics and stuff, but it seemed really poorly written.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 11, 2008, 12:55:33 AM
I've never really cared for The Mummy movies.
Just never really interested me, seemed too...
I just didn't think they were executed well.
And the writing was ok, the acting was ok, everything was ok.
But it was just that - ok. alright.

6'4?
Gahh...
I'm 5'2!
And I look a little like some characters, but...
I'm not especially anyone.
I'm not, you know, 'THE KATARA'!
Nor 'THE TY LEE'!
Or 'THE SUKI!'
Or whoever, really.
But I could probably pull off any of those.
Magic of makeup and all.
I wonder if me being 5'2 will mean I can't play any of the leads...
Probably...
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Sanhlami on August 11, 2008, 12:58:17 AM
Would Aang be 5'4''?  ;D

or is that to tall for a 12 year old?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 11, 2008, 01:00:53 AM
i wouldnt be too concerned with height. If you fit everything else, they can deal with your height. There are lots of ways they can make you look taller or shorter.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 11, 2008, 01:01:23 AM
Would Aang be 5'4''?  ;D

or is that to tall for a 12 year old?

I'm thinking the range for Aang would be from 4'10 to about, yeah, 5'4 or 5'6.
They'd want to keep him short, for his youth thing.

But yes, height isn't a big deal.

If I somehow got Katara, I could wear platform boots, ahaa!
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Sanhlami on August 11, 2008, 01:04:28 AM
Yah, I guess, around 5 would be fine, as long as your not like 7 feet or something like that.

I hope they make the height difference the same as the animated series. Toph and Aang about the same height, Katara a little taller then Aang and Sokka taller then all of them.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 11, 2008, 01:12:48 AM
haha height should be the least of your concerns. With "movie magic" height doesn't matter :) You guys are fine. I'm not expecting this movie to be exactly like the series anyway, so really all it boils down to is that you can play the part, and play it well.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 11, 2008, 01:14:26 AM
i just read about waht they did for Lord of the Rings. Apparently there are a lot of things they can do to make size differences work. They often shot things multiple times and rescaled them so people would seem smaller or taller in comparison. so dont worry too much about it. If you are good enough to fit the role, they can do things to make you the appropriate size.

So to all of you who have sent in resumes..
Did you guys do it electronically on actorsaccess or send in a hardcopy resume?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 11, 2008, 01:16:02 AM
Hardcopy, sir. :) It's the way to go. Also reading 666 replies is kinda creepy lol (this is 669)
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: DAang on August 11, 2008, 01:18:09 AM
Thanks Pirate_Jeff,
Along with the headshots and resume, did you send in some sort of video? and do you have some sort of link that shows how to make formal resumes?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 11, 2008, 01:21:43 AM
You don't need to send a video (I didn't :) ) but if you think your resume is... lacking... then I'd  recommend it. Also, on actorsaccess there is a sample resume :) Be original, and be  sure to stick something that makes you stand out from everyone else!
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: DAang on August 11, 2008, 01:26:24 AM
Ah ok, Thanks.
It might be a little late to turn in a resume, but this is for fun anyways hehe.
Good luck to everyone who has already turned their resumes in!
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 11, 2008, 02:25:35 AM
If you send it by snail mail anytime in the coming week, it will most likely get there.
(Well, unless it gets lost, or the train/plane/transportation thing carrying it dies...)

Don't worry about it!
If you're meant to be in Avatar, you will be.
Just keep realistic, and optimistic.

And go for it.
If you think you need to send a video, by all means, really send a video.

No no not like, highest posts
but the higher number of posts you have you get a higher ranking
the less posts you have you have an older shyamalan movie
the higher the newer the shyamalan movie
and I did the math and figured out how many posts you have to have to get bumped up to the next level

6'4''!!?!!?!?
My brother is 6'3'' so I'm used to tall people but yeah :)

I'm down at almost 5'6''
(5'5 3/4'')
Not sure how that is for a 15 year old
I think its above average but I'm not sure
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 11, 2008, 10:59:42 AM
Yeah, my best friend is like 6'3.
He puts his elbow on my head...

And I'm 5'2 and I'm not getting any taller, so...
If they choose me for a part, you don't have to worry about being too short, just standing by me makes people look taller.

But once again, height doesn't really affect it, as they can make us magically taller or shorter, if we are, ehem, the ONE

Magnificentlicious.

Post by: happyelectrons on August 11, 2008, 11:51:14 AM
yeah anything that is a pyhsical problem can be fixed/altered/made-to-look-different so don't even worry about that stuff. What they can't change is your talent and your acting abilities so I would just work on those in the event that you get a callback.

just had a question I was thinking about and since the board is pretty slow now I guess I'll ask:

If one of us were to get a callback and had to fly out to L.A. how many days do you think they would make you stay? Or would they do one callback out of time (because they have a series of callbacks)? Do they do all these callbacks close together? If anybody might know.... Cuz I live in Texas and if I were to get a callback I would hope they have me fly out there and finish through whatever call I make it through before I come back cuz I don't want to go back and forth. That'll cost a fortune.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued

One, I'd assume you'd go to LA and stay there, throughout the series of callbacks, until you are eliminated.
And there is the possibility the studio will pay for it.
And I'm a texas girl too, ahaa.

Fort Worth is loveleh.

But yeah, Paramount said it was possible for them to cover flight costs, and I would take their word.
If you get a callback, they'll probably explain all this to you.
And if you need hep paying for the flight, I have no doubt Paramount would help.

Yeah, before long, everyone will have something in.

A lot of new people, and anxious people waiting for phone calls from Paramount! (I'm one of those anxious people!)

Otherwise, no new significant info has been released. Good luck!!! :D

Also, Aang Sokka Katara and Zuko are the only ones we know about at all!
Perhaps one of us could email thelastairbendercasting and ask about secondary characters like Yue, Jet, and Suki

Ah, it's quite easy

Go to your profile, and click Forum Profile Information

In "signature", type [img.]right here goes the url of the picture. for example, go to google images and find your picture and click "see full-size image". It'll be just the picture on the blank white page. Copy the url. and paste it right where these senteces are.[/img.]

but i think that this would be like your big break, your school wud be all like, "yeah go do this thing!" lol
i wish my school would say that!!  :P lol

oh and i start school next week too...
on tuesday! O_O

usually if you didn't finish high school, they would tudor you on set so you could get your high school dilpoma. then you'd have to wait to go to college.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 11, 2008, 04:53:54 PM
If you got the part in Avatar, you would leave school, like... dis-enroll.
You'd be tutored on set, and probably at home for the next 6 years.
But no college tutoring, yeah.

Yeah, you will stop attending public/private high school and be home schooled or taught on set just like Bright said.
Anyways, I have a question for the sides.
It's only you in the picture and someone off the set reads off the lines for the other characters right?
and iamkatara i remember you saying you had to put your headshot or some page in a hardcopy resume facing the other way?  I'm kind of confused on that hehe.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: iamkatara on August 11, 2008, 05:12:12 PM
someone else can read the other lines... but you should be the only one in frame.

basically, the picture and the text face away from eachother.

DaAng, you can also get your resume printed on the back of your headshot.
that way, it doesn't get sloppy if it falls apart :)
and if you staple your resume, be sure to staple all four corners, or it could get ruined!
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Sanhlami on August 11, 2008, 06:07:37 PM
The best summary I can make is...

thelastairbendercasting.com has all Aang auditioning information only

http://www.actorsaccess.com/projects/index.cfm?view=breakdowns&breakdown=155667&region=1 has Sokka, Katara, Zuko and Aang audition information(but just go to thelastairbendercasting.com for Aang)

http://www.showfax.com/role_selection.cfm?l=1&t=3&p=96642 has the sides (audition monologues) but you can get it from this forum in another topic.

Currently other character besides the 4 main ones aren't being casted right now and they might want more experienced people for those roles, but you can still send in your headshot, resume, and (audition video optional) if you want

Anyone tell me if I missed anything

It'll be magical.
You'll stick it in the mailbox, feeling fulfilled, and before long, an executive at Paramount will open it, look at your resume and pics, decide they like you and pop you in their computer. As you play on screen, the person will exclaim "THIS IS IT! THIS IS THE ONE!" And your phone will ring as you are cast as one of the leads.

got rice 1 minute of acting isnt bad for a video. If you do it right it should give them enough of an idea of what you can do. then just spend like 30 seconds saying why youd fit the role, and 30 seconds of something of your choice. Thats all they need to see.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 11, 2008, 10:46:17 PM
Yeah, I haven't made a video, so I can't exactly disarm you with amazingness, but it doesn't have to be long.

If it shows you can act, and you tell them why you want this role, and tell them about you, and then its done. a minute is a long time, actually.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 11, 2008, 10:59:14 PM
I would say 90% of the videos should be between 2 and 3 minutes--maybe 4... That gives enough time to do whats necessary and put some personal spins on it. Any longer or shorter and you've probably put too little or too much in. It's possible that you could make good videos that are longer or shorter, but really only for special cases where someone has a unique idea that takes a certain amount of time.

And you really should make a video unless you look exactly like a character or have a great resume. Otherwise you probably wont have much of a chance at getting picked. You have to remember that its a big movie with lots of people trying out. You have to stand out if you want a callback.

Anyway, I know this was way back, but..


No babylou, you are not lame.  ;)

Oh my gosh, I'm sooo behind! A Ton of you have done so much, I haven't done anything! *slaps self*


Heh, I still feel pretty lame.. =P

Same for me.. I haven't done a thing, though the resume would be relatively easy to do, what with those generators out there and such.. Headshots will be the hardest for me. And for the video.. The only problem there is there is finding a chance to do it (in other words, get my parents and sisters out of the house so I can do it without having to fear being judged.. =/)

I was thinking that they will cast toph as 5' 3" and 14-15 years old

This sounds pretty close to me! I am 5'3" AND I'm 15.. Though I will be 16 in a few months' time.

So, the real question is who hasn't submitted.

I haven't! =(

My hair was done yesterday.. And it looks awrshoom! I shall take pictures tomorrow and post them for a character re-evaluation XP.

Post by: IToph on August 12, 2008, 12:07:25 AM
matt 1 min is definetly too short for a video
as gotRice say that if you have a crap resume
you really need to showcase your acting in your video...
Im guessing 6 min is fine...
2-4 min is average...
but 6 min is max...

and gotRice they said they will take a look at everything
so Im guessing if your video is 7 min I think thats allright
just dont make it a 1 hour video lol
or theyll be annoyed
my video was actually 5 min but it was normal
just a monologue and katara side
but if your gonna do something wacko and different a bit longer isnt really gonna hurt...
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 12, 2008, 12:18:43 AM
lol thanks for trying to help itoph, but i already did my video and I know what Im doing. I'm trying not to worry you guys but if you want me to be honest, a video over 4 minutes is almost definitely not a good thing. If you want to make a good video it has to be concise and well put together. given the information they want to see, it should take between 2 and 3 minutes. If you decide to go a little overboard it might take 4. And if you just want a short video with like martial arts on it, and a short acting piece, it might take a ltitle over a minute. You could do that if you have a really good resume and some sort of basis for which you wanted a short video (like if there were a creative reason for it). I dont want to say that anything over 4 minutes is horrible, becasue you MIGHT be able to pull something decent off, but for the most part anything over 4 minutes is going to be too much. They will probably still watch it, but it wont "wow" them because they are a business and dont want to sit for 5-10 minutes watching you do stuff. I am a very experienced at making videos, and have won awards in school and other places, soo i know what im talking about as far as what people like to see for length.

to give you an example... if you were a casting director and 500 people sent you videos. you want to find someoen whos funny, charismatic, and can act. Would you rather have them send shorter 2-3 minute videos that cover there attempts to show all those charactristics or some sort of long 5-10 minute thing that has those things all mixed in and repeated multiple times? The answer is obvioulsy the shorter one. It doesnt waste their time, and they will like you for it. Ultimately, you guys can do what you want, I'm just trying to help you out so you'll have a better shot at getting a call back. 
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 12, 2008, 12:33:56 AM

i think it should be short
i agree matt
you are most helpful!

I plan on introducing myself, reading the sides, doing some gymnastics, talking a bit, then ending it.
I don't want to overlode them, just want to prove I can act, I'm flexible, etc.

after that i will send in another different one lol...
and it will be shorter too...
because likely if they dont like my long ass video they will throw it
and forget about it lol....because why would they remember
it if its crap and they looking at thousands of videos lol

Hey, sorry to double post, but I recommend you don't talk too much about what you lack, and more of what you possess! Don't apologize in your video :)
Send it to Gail Levin. (I can't remember the address off-hand) :P
And it's good to tell them that you learn quickly :D and even if you can do a cart-wheel, at least that's better than nothing. If there is something that makes you stand out, they will remember you. Good luck!!!

Just showing the clip like when I'm in a gymnasium at a recent time. (as a part of my audition video) Would that be unprofessional?

hey, yeah I did something like that. Ideally have it close enough so they can tell that its you, but it doesnt really matter if its a different location.  If the video clip works, then by all means use it. IT might seem slightly cleaner if you do the whole video in one or two areas total, just to not have a bunch of switching, but as long as all the clips you use are good it shouldnt matter. Make sure to put transitions so whoever is watching knows what they are about to see.

hmmm..what you say matt does make sense lol...

Good idea gotrice, its nice to follow formalities but they arent absolutley necessary. If you like the ideas and personality you showed in your videos, then send it. As long as you like it, it should be worth sending. If you dont get a call within like 2-4 weeks you can always send in more refined stuff to try again.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: happyelectrons on August 12, 2008, 12:32:16 PM
yeah. good advice Matt800. I have a question for you. When you say the video shouldn't be over 3 minutes is that for each segment? For example when I did mine I had 3 segments, one was the intro-just me trying to show my personality, the other 2 were monologues each like 2 minutes, one from avatar, one from a movie. None of the videos was over 3 minutes and on the DVD that I made for it they are broken up and titled appropriately.

And also going along with the topic of the thread I sent mine on August 1 so I'm pretty sure it's there now. I just really hope they like it!!!
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 12, 2008, 12:43:04 PM
but if their combined are they 3 min?
because if your monologues are 2 min each
isnt that 4 min and thats higher than 3 min lol

I might be a little late and missed the post that said this but,
I read through ASN forums just now and it seems you Have to
have a video of some sort to showcase your acting
if you are not part of an agency. I know it's been said that they are
looking at everything coming through but I feel the load of audition
material will be too big for them to look at every single thing.
You can check out the ASN post to see the
e-mail one person received.

Edit:I guess what I mean is that if or once they open your resume
and see that you are not part of an agency a video might help
persuade them to consider you.

I was reading your posts a while back and some of you guys say not to use the sides actorsaccess provided, in your audition tape (should you choose to make one for characters other than Aang).
If Paramount Pictures said everything in actors access was legit, we can use the sides they provided in an audition tape. It says that we can use it for "your consideration or use." (1st sentence of instruction sheet that comes with the sides)

I mean the sides are for each person's individual purposes, and the only thing they prohibit is distribution. So I think we can use them instead of taking lines from ASN or whatnot.

Im gonna try to make a video soon.
im going to tell them the truth i cant do Gymastics, but im Dedicated ive been in school plays i love the show i dont know i need help. What should do!
So can i just send the video... wait who do i send it too?
ahhgg  im confused

Hey, sorry to double post, but I recommend you don't talk too much about what you lack, and more of what you possess! Don't apologize in your video :)
Send it to Gail Levin. (I can't remember the address off-hand) :P
And it's good to tell them that you learn quickly :D and even if you can do a cart-wheel, at least that's better than nothing. If there is something that makes you stand out, they will remember you. Good luck!!!

Thanks i can do a Cartwheel and a handstand! lol
I'm learing Tai Chi too for Water bending!
Hmmm.good idea thanks
When you remember can you please send me the Address?if you can?
Mine is Probaly going to be 2 minutes.

Is anyone going to ask about secondary characters or are we just going to send stuff in?
the thing is I don't want to send it in and have them throw it out
then the time will actually come for secondary characters to audition and they remember me or something and think "oh she's not paying any attention she's just sending it to whoever, not very professional" if you all know what I mean
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 12, 2008, 05:21:31 PM
vamp, I did ask, and I got an automated response that didn't answer my question

My question was
 "Is it possible to audition for other characters besides the four listed on actorsaccess.com?"

And the response was
"Thank you for your interest in this project.
 
At this time, ?Aang? is the only role that we will be opening up to auditions from the public via this website.  We will be casting other roles through live auditions with experienced actors, primarily submitted through agencies."

I wouldn't recommend emailing them, because we want to stay on their good side! ;) Otherwise, Gail Levin might forumbend us until we can't even type any more.

EDIT when it says "via this website" it's talking about thelastairbendercasting.com
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: vamptasticavatar on August 12, 2008, 05:58:01 PM
Yeah but the lastairbendingcasting IS only for Aang
I was talking about e-mailing Gail or actorsaccess or something to find out if Katara, Aang, Sokka and Zuko are the only charcaters you can audition for from that site
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 12, 2008, 06:15:12 PM
if I were you I'd just wait until they post something on actorsaccess. or Id just submit now. They did say before that they would cast secondary characters at a later time, soo yeah. I woudnt worry too much.

Jeff, I dont mean to be rude, but you wont get a helpful response unless your emails are more specific. They send out that automated one if you dont mention actorsaccess and stuff. Something like "I noticed you are currently requesting submissions for the four main characters on actors access. Will secondary characters such as suki, jet, iroh etc. be requested for in a similar manner? Can we mail in our submissions for those characters now, or will there be a time for that later?" might've been better. I would suggest not emailing them agian, because im pretty sure they have something similar to that asked in almost every email they get.

Id say just wait or submit now, and hope for the best.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Sanhlami on August 12, 2008, 06:43:43 PM
Thanks Matt800. Now, I can die peacefully  ;D

If it were me, I would send the stuff for the secondary/other characters, and put a note saying that if they would consider you now or for future references. Right now it seems kind of iffy if the officials are going to look for professionals or make it a public audition so it would be better to be safe.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 12, 2008, 06:48:14 PM
:) my email was more specific. I didn't want to write the whole thing out, and it's on a made-up email address anyway. Don't worry about me. ;)
Thanks though. Also, I recommend if you do email them (which you probably shouldn't..) you should only ask one question. Otherwise, they will only answer one of them. (I've sent them 2 emails. One of them asked multiple questions and they only answered one. The other one was this one lol)
My email was very similar to the one you wrote, and I got the nonsensical answer.

But thanks for your help! I have a  feeling they're not searching specifically for secondary characters, and they might just pick secondaries from the list of resumes they're already receiving in bulk ;)
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Sanhlami on August 12, 2008, 07:13:31 PM

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 12, 2008, 07:44:03 PM
haha yeah jeff, just trying to help  ;D Yeah they seem to be pretty hard to get a decent answer out of, (which is what I was trying to say, but you clearly already know that anyways).  ;D I agree that its not worth emailing them again, id say people looking to audition for secondary characters should just submit anyways. They are a casting company so if you mail them hardcopys it would just like the normal way to apply for an audition. Except I assume if you had an agent they would do the calling or mailing. we know that they are casting for those characters so just submit and hope it works out. You can always resubmit. 

Also by "experienced actors" I think they just mean they dont have an easy process for people to submit through. You need to go through a actors medium such as actors access to find out about it. Therefore because we found actors access i think we're fine.

GotRice, I'd  only  send  in one (just so you seem more professional)

Maricelita, I think 2 is the best.

ForeignBelle14, I put puns in my resume, and I told them I can ride a unicycle and all the other WONDERFUL things about me. ;) hahaha just kidding I'm not really hot-headed like that but it'd be funny if I was (but I really did put small puns and the unicycle thing)  ;D

And Matt, I completely agree with you. Paramount is assuming that if you are on thelastairbendercasting.com, you either A) Have never come to this forum :D or B) don't have an actorsaccess account. Also, I agree about secondaries; A lot of the time, casting directors put you in for a part completely different than the one you tried out for. You could be trying out for Zuko, and you could get a callback for Sokka, or maybe even Jet (casting directors are funny that way  :) ).

Either way, if you follow the rules on actorsaccess or thelastairbendercasting.com, and have a good amount of luck (or posotive karma/fate as some people call it) than you should be good to go!! BEST OF LUCK!!  :D

i think it means to trim your resume so that it will be the same size as your headshot. it makes it more...professional.
like i said before, and easier method would be to print your resume to the back of your headshot. no mess, no worry!

Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 12, 2008, 11:32:11 PM
If you're that worried about it being correct to the half-inch, then go ahead and trim it. However, I don't think it will truly make that much of a difference. It might show some experience, but I don't think it would change your chance of being in the movie or not.  ;)

Post by: Matt800 on August 12, 2008, 11:44:02 PM
yeha gotrice you;re supposed to trim both to 8x10 and have them back to back. thats the regular format. If you want to send 2 pictures go for it. Thats not the regular format, but it might help your chances, if it helps to show you look like a character. I did 2 pictures, one with more of a shoulders up type thing, and a full body--just to show my face well in one and that I'm in good shape in the other.

The formalities show you care, and are intelligent, but they arent absolutley necessary. Actually if you try to do everytghin perfect and look too experienced, it might lower your chances if you dont show that experience through your acting... they'll wonder why you arent better. Its best to be honest and say that you arent experienced so they know you can improve easily. basically just find the balance between showing you care, and overdoing it  ;D

Haha well said, Matt. I couldn't put that into words, and I was afraid I was coming off as too inexperienced to GotRice.  ;)
Anway, for my resume, I first followed the format on Actorsaccess, and then made minor changes to make it a bit more formal.

:D I think that's the way to go, but I guess it's up to you! I was afraid if I made it too formal, I would look hot-headed.

OMG! IT MAY HAVE POSSIBLY ARRIVED!


I didn't trim my resume...
Should I have?
Hmm.
Maybe...

Guys, something about videos

I'm just playing devil's advocate on this one, but do you think there's any possibility they see the video and think "this person is just assuming their resume will be accepted?!  >:( "

I dunno, I'm a bit skeptical about sending in a video..  I guess it couldn't hurt though :)
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Kuzon on August 13, 2008, 01:13:29 AM
Honestly, I don't think that they would have a hissie fit and throw away you profile over the sizes of everything...

hmmm... one thing that could make you stick out more is if you sent them a big picture of yourself like the size of a movie poster or something...

Pirate_Jeff, I think that it would depend on how professional the video is, or whether or not they even watch the video...
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 13, 2008, 01:16:55 AM
hahaha Kuzon when you say that I picture Gail Levin with a huge poster of me that says "The Pirate_Jeff Experience" on the bottom or something like that lol :D

But I agree. They said they were looking for "newbie" actors. I don't think they are that strict. Perhaps if you were trying out for Broadway, it would make a huge difference. Otherwise, I think this one just comes down to raw talent and good looks :D

I already used this fake Iroh quote, but I'll use it again

Hey Bright.123! :)
I just want you to know that they might not reply right when they get your resume. They probably read each one, mark which ones are good enough to be accepted, and then when they get a good number, call the people. Otherwise, they could call a bunch of people with decent resumes, but soon after receive hundreds of AMAZING resumes and have to make EVEN MORE CALLS!!!!  :o

General Information: Name, Adress, Phone Number, Email, Date of birth....
(talk about) Experience: Acting/theater or/and martial arts
Demonstration: Martial arts form or/and an acting scene from you
(and if you want: Why you should get the role)

Hope this helps  ;D
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 13, 2008, 02:58:48 AM
just follow what they had listed on lastairbender casting for videos, although I wouldnt do the sides if I were you (for characters other than Aang). Do something else like lines from the TV show. Basically: introduction--who you are, why you fit the role, acting scene, optional martial arts scene/or applicable talent.

Pirate jeff videos are very customary to submit for these types of things. And they are NOT videos of you auditioning.  They are a good way to show yourself better. Your submission is a request to audition, so its not like you are assuming you were accepted just by sending a video. In no way would it be a bad idea to submit a video, as long as your video isnt horrible.

really everyone CALMMMMM
if you have sent in your stuff theres nothing left to do but wait! even if you made little mistakes like not trimming resumes or your video is a minute longer then someones, in the long run, that stuff REALLY will not matter if they think you fit the part!
so just make your video how you think it represents you
trim your resume if it suits your liking
and just wait and hope for the best!

they said...
"[All criteria] are considered as we sift through the actors access submissions.  Out of thousands of submissions, I am afraid that a much, much smaller number are asked to audition."


by all criteria they mean like physical similarity, voice similarity, acting talent, martial arts, personality, etc. Soo yeah if you feel like you can do a better job with your submission you might want to, because apparently a toon of people are submititng and not many are getting audtiions.

Didn't you guys say that hardcopy is preferred?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 13, 2008, 05:04:13 PM
yes actorsaccess.com gave all the information to submit a hardcopy.

also, guys they said: "If you are submitting a headshot and resume through actors access, you should do so immediately.  In fact, it has been two weeks since the breakdown went out.  Nearly all of the submissions that we expect to receive have come in already."

So if any of you havent submitted yet, they actually already wanted them in already.

Also, guys. It's ok to re-send information, but I wouldn't freak out too much.
Unless you left out something REALLY important, it might just be redundant to send in your information again if it only has a small change to it.  ;)

Also Matt, is that all that was in the email or was there anything else?

OMGOMG I'm really sorry to double post but I just heard something AWESOME

In "Avatar Day," Uncle  Iroh says a quote that is just like the one I made up!!!

Zuko steals a really really nice teapot for  him, and Uncle says:
"To be honest with you, the best tea tastes delicious whether it comes in a porcelein pot, or a tin cup"

:D that makes me ecstatic!
So basically, the link to this is that really it comes down  to what's in your Resume, not so much what it looks like. Although you at least want to make it look nice enough that you know what you're doing!!

NOBODY WANTS TO DRINK MUD.

sooo....
do you guys think youll get the roles you want?
you know, some actors got chosen just because they have the right look.
wether they can act or not.
like Miranda Cosgrove!
or Rihanna!  ;D ;D

i kinda hope that happens to me!
lol  ;)

hahaha avatarluv, that is very true.
I think some people might get roles they didn't want.

 :D I wouldn't mind.. Just being in the movie would be an incredible honor!

yeah jeff thats all they said. I dont know if that means they dont want any more electronic submissions, because they'd have to check their actors access account to view them or something, or if they dont want more submissions in general. Id guess its the first one, and if you send a hardcopy within the next week you'd easily be fine. I wouldnt worry much about it.

Im just a little sad that we have confirmation on how many people have been submitting for this. I assumed a lot of actors have auditioned, but I didnt think they would have thousands of submissions through actors access alone. Oh well, I did a pretty good job, i have faith.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 13, 2008, 06:52:56 PM
:) I don't think a thousand is so bad. If you think about it (and once again, I hate to sound hot-headed)
but so far we (this forum) have been the most informed people who have made it all the way here with only the real support of eachother. None of us are part of some huge corp. with so much more experience than everyone else. But of the "unknown actors" M. Night is looking for, we are by far the most informed. I have high hopes that at least ONE of us will get a callback!! :D We've made it this far!!!

EDIT* I suppose our lurkers are informed, too. ;)

School starts for me on Tuesday. What happens if I (and my family) are not home when Paramount calls?
Would they leave a message, call again later, or just FORGET ABOUT ME.. ? ;) Hopefully not the 3rd one

Honestly, I think that if they're interested enough in you to call then I'm pretty sure they'll do the first two, for how long I don't know...but, they wouldn't just forget if they want actually want you.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 13, 2008, 07:10:18 PM
they'll leave a message.

I'm just hoping that not many other people have a ton of martial arts experience, look like a character, and show promise with acting. Its hard to picture the thousands of people who submitted having all the neccessary qualifications. Thats at least what im banking on... ;D
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 13, 2008, 07:18:20 PM
well Matt, you sound like you know what you're doing! I wouldn't worry.
I have a really good resume, but I didn't send in a video at all.
I didn't get professional headshots, but I got headshots that looked really good.
And I do have karate experience, but I forgot to write how many years of karate experience on my resume, I just wrote " Karate Experience" without thinking about it :P

You're one of the Elite Mnightfan Forumers!! I' m really hopeful that we'll at least get one of our fellow Elite Mnightfan Forumers accepted! :D
iamkatara looks a lot like Yue, and she knows a bunch about this stuff. GotRice looks very good for a role in the movie, as does Bright and everyone else who's put in pictures and thoughts (sorry for not writing all of your names lol). I can't figure out how to put in a picture of me, but I've been told that if I had the scar I'd look like Zuko. And I don't know what you like, but you sure sound intelligent! :) I have confidence!!

IMPORTANT EDIT HEY GUYS
My Friend emailed paramount and asked when he should expect callbacks, or when it would be too late.
The reply was: "It is hard to say.  I would assume that if you don?t hear by the end of the month, then you won?t hear."
Haha I told him not to email paramount, and instead to come to this website. Thelastairbendercasting sounds just about as informed as we do!!  ;)

I guess I'll just send
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 13, 2008, 10:08:28 PM
Vamp, I'd send as soon as you can. In the example Resume on actorsaccess, there is an option to have a footnote.

In your footnote, you could write something about you being happy to play a secondary character, or that you'd be honored to play any character, even besides one listed on actoraccess. :) just a suggestion...

I'm not sure what the "formal" resumes say about footnotes, but I'd say it'd be safe.
You could get a second opinion from GotRice or Matt though, because they know a lot more about the formalities of resumes than I do.

eeeeek omgomgomg
so would it be better to just send out a headshot/resume, which i have already made, then later send in a video (i'm afraid they wont notice that its from the same person though and just be like what the heck, why did someone send me a random video), or wait a bit until both are finished and send them in together?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued

Probaly both im going to wait. im practiceing,and then im going to record it and save send it
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Sanhlami on August 14, 2008, 01:51:32 AM
I think sending it all at once would be better. Its more professional and it won't confuse the casting directors more then they already are with the thousands of auditioners.

I'm practicing my specialty and the Aang sides right now and will probably send everything 1 week before deadline which is September 2 (or is it Semptember 15?)
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 14, 2008, 02:03:26 AM
Ohkay, everyone is this forum is officially awesamazfantastilicious.

I've sent in one copy of my resume with a headshot, and I know I don't need to resend anything, and I don't want to clutter them, but I have found the strong desire to make a video. So I've been making some and they've turned out pretty well, and I figure I'll do a final one tomorrow or Friday and then just decide if it's send worthy, and if it is, then I will send it. Woo.

And for the date, I'd try to get it in before September, just because there is so much confusion relating to either the first or the fifteenth. Who knows?

And if callbacks begin at the end of the month...
We won't have to wait so long!
I really do hope anyone here gets a callback.
And while I'm dying to get one, it's just the business if I don't.
And I really hope you all get one!
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 14, 2008, 02:30:28 AM
ok i thought I said this but I guess I forgot to mention. The last airbender casting people also said that they mostly care about your photo. I think they are primarily looking for people who look like the characters. They implied they look at the videos, but arent really sure how much they attention they will give them. soo yeah if there's one thing you need to do right its the photo.

also I think they are nearing the time they are done accepting submissions. September is for aang. For the other 3, they said if you havent sent in already, do it immediately. You could probably get away with a few days, but id guess by next week it'll be past the time they'd want them. They might still look, but they wont be as happy about it. 
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 14, 2008, 03:10:36 AM
yeah get it in soon. If you dont live in california, I'm pretty sure you can arrange with a fed ex kinkos near the paramount address to print your resume and photo and deliver it, which would obviously be much faster. but It might be easier to just mail it. Of course, if you submit a video they couldnt print that, so youd have to do it yourself by mail or electronically. You could just go electronically through actors access, but they said they prefered hard copy. Im sure it doesnt matter too much though.

good news about them caring most about the photo though. Mine was really good so I'm happy about that.

Hello!!! I'm new to the thread  ;D. I have a few questions for Matt800.

-Would it be wise for me to send two headshots?
-I read in some previous pages that it is not recommended for one to perform the official Paramount sides (non-aang character) in their video. Is this true?
-I want to send in my resume, headshot, and video as soon as I can but I 'm moving to a new place. I will most likely be able to send them next week. Unfortunately, I just recently learned of the casting call. I want to contact Paramount and see what they have to say about me turning my stuff in so late :-\.
-Thus, where can I find their contact information and would it be wise for me to contact them?

I want to say THANK YOU to everyone and to all of the knowledgeable people in this thread. The info provided on here are like pieces of gold nuggets. I hope to contribute to this wonderful thread as well in my future postings  ;).

Welcome to the forum. :)

-if you think 2 headshots will help show that you look like a character better I'd say go for it.
-Sides are what they have you perform at auditions, because you are not auditioning in your submission-- you are requesting an audition-- I would suggest doing something else like lines from the show. (It provides variation). I recently heard from Paramount that they dont really care about videos for non-aang characters. They are not as important as your photo, or resume... So its up to you if you want to do one and how much time you want to spend on it. 
- I would suggest you try to get your submission in sooner. You could consider not sending in a video, or trying to get it all done sooner than next week.  They told me they want people to submit immediately if they have not already. I am sure they would still review your submission if you got it to them early next week, but if you have to send late, you might want to try and play it off creatively so you wont upset them as much.
-I would suggest not contacting them about it, because I already asked. They would say they have recieved almost all the submissions they were expecting and if you havent sent in, do it immediately.

wow. I'm glad i already sent mine in. Yeah matt800 it is kinda scary that they have thousands of submissions to sift through and that very few of those will get a callback. I'm hoping that alot of those are just fans who look nothing like any character, lol. I know that's bad but if there are a whole lot of qualified ppl it makes it alot harder. So if they like you, you should hear back by the end of the month? Is that just for Aang or the other 3 too?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued

Hey, someone asked earlier about who the deadlines were for.
It's for everyone besides Aang.
If you're trying out for Aang, there are different calls you'll receive.
Thelastairbendercasting skips the "callback" phase, so when they said the deadlines were the end of the month, they were talking to people auditioning for Zuko, Sokka, and Katara. I'm not sure how they're doing secondary characters, but I imagine it's the same.
 :) Hope that helps.
BASICALLY:
Aang's deadlines are September 15.
Everyone else is ASAP. (If you haven't sent in already, do so NOW)  :D GOOD LUCK, MY FRIENDS!!!

For the headshot should we be smiling, like showing teeth smiling?

 :D
Thank You Matt800 for being very thorough in answering my question about deadlines and such. I really want to send a video and I think I can, but without a monologue and only a "kata" demonstration. If I put in a monologue that I don't feel confident about and didn't have my acting teacher critique I feel that it might hurt my chances.

I believe I can create my video 2mrrw so the question is should I put in a monologue that is whipped up and in my opinion may come across as unskilled or should I just work on it, lose some sleep and throw one in there?  ???

thanks  :)

For the headshot should we be smiling, like showing teeth smiling?

To answer the question above:

I'm sending in one headshot where I'm smiling and my teeth are showing because I feel like I look young and enthusiastic like the characters. However, I did read somewhere once that smiling may distort your face and casting directors really want to see your features. I'm actually sending two. The second one I'm not smiling at all and it's more of like a fighter picture.
If you feel that smiling with your teeth makes you look better, and you look like you're in character, and one can still see your unique facial features then you should do so.
I hope that helped  :).

For a picture, I'm not sure what is the "formal" thing to do, but they're looking for new actors anyway, so here's my advice ;)
I'd say you'd want your picture to look like the most regular "you" you can muster up. :)
If you never smile, don't force one just for the picture. But if you have a nice smile, bring it out!
I think the thing said "make it look like a glamorous you, but still you." :D GOOD LUCK

hmmm I'm not sure
I don't usually smile big in pictures so I'll just do a regular facial expression
maybe I'll send two
but that advice did help :D
thanks again

So It's decided that the latest you can turn a resume for a character other than Aang is by the end of this week or ASAP, which means I probably have to skip the video and just turn in a resume and headshot. I'm planning to do my headshots tomorrow and type up my resume now, but... thing is I have no acting experience other than school plays which I assume can't make it onto the resume list. Should I turn in two headshots and a resume since i don't have a video, one smiling and one just regular?  People say I look like Zuko or Jet mainly cause I am Asian haha... but they're animated characters so I'm not really confident on just that.  I don't think I can afford to wait until Monday to submit a video along with my resume and headshot.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 14, 2008, 10:34:50 PM
oo DaAng that's a tough call....
umm I'm not sure if mail picks up on Saturday, but if you think it's worth it to make the video, I think you should.
hmmmm
Because it's better to have a good package sent in later than to have a bad one sent in earlier, but then again it's better to have any package sent in than no package.....

 ??? I dunno what to say.. I guess I wasn't that much of a help, was I..
Check with your parents to see if mail picks up on Saturday where you live, and if it does, I recommend that you do put in a video tomorrow and then mail it Saturday.

To reply to your question DaAng

My acting teacher, a professional actress who is SAG affiliated, recommended that I put ANY type of acting experience I have, even if it's school plays, student films, etc. You can even list any acting training you have received. So definitely flaunt any type of acting experience you have.
It was stated in an earlier post that two headshots should be fine. I'm sending two. It definitely gives the casting people more range of your look.

If I send 2 pictures should I staple it in my resume
or just leave it?

GotRice, can you go to a friend's house and print it? Save your stuff on a USB drive and bring it to wherever you can find a printer. If I were you, I'd staple your best picture back-to-back with your Resume in all four corners, and then staple the other one in just one corner behind that one facing out.

Like this:
                         <-RESUME|Best picture->Other picture->
And then send ASAP.
Be optimistic! If they call you back, you don't want to sound worried. :D

dripdrop, people are putting some martial arts experience in, some information about themselves, etc.
The purpose of the video is to show that you could play that character. You're showing that you look/sound/act like them. :)
Be optimistic, and show them that you are the person who deserves that role.

Post by: avatarluv13 on August 14, 2008, 11:10:31 PM
ok so.
earlier, like way earlier, we were talking about a release form or something..  ???
it was for people under 18.
your parent had to sign it and everything...  ???
still unsure about that.

NOT RELATED!:
my 2 sisters were helping me rehearse my sides for Katara and they were like, "you sound just like her when you mean it."  ;D

sorry it made me feel special because i know they are the criticism type of people. lol  ;)

OMG!!
all this news is making me really scared because i havent sent out my stuff yet. O_O
i just dont want to be too late and skipped.
that would both suck and hurt really bad... :'(
im sending in my resume, a headshot, and a letter to Gail, and maybe, possibly, likely send in a video too.
i just hope it all gets looked at and someone from here gets a callback.
you know if they're looking for unknown actors and actresses, so how many do you think they would call back?
if there are about one thousand submissions and potential actors?

as for my video im goin to say name, age, living, experience, tell about me (not too much though), a scene, some lines, and a 'thank you for your time' ending.  :)

avatarluv, to the best of our knowledge, unless you're auditioning for Aang ;) you don't need the release forms.
If your resume is accepted, they will call you back, and THEN you will need to fill out all the bloody forms. :)
And congrats about sounding like Katara!

AND THIS MESSAGE IS TO EVERYONE:
If you haven't sent in your stuff yet, follow the advice of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and Don't Panic.
Right now, it is not too late. They never posted a solid deadline. If you send in your stuff, then at least you have a chance at getting a callback. If you spend your time worrying about what to do, you won't get anything done.
To quote Zuko in The Boiling Rock: "You have to try every time. You can't quit because you're afraid you MIGHT fail."
The only way to find out is to send it in as soon as you can!  :D Things happen for a reason. I have faith in you guys!!!

EDIT GotRice, is there any way you can go buy ink tomorrow, and print it out and send it? For what it sounds like, that's your best chance. Also, is this the second package you're sending in, or the first?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued

Do i send my audition to Gail or paromunt? spelled it wrongXD

On the topic of school plays on resumes, are we talking about full on drama productions, or can they also be well rehearsed plays in classroom settings? since I have done countless of these.

On an off topic, I have never heard any boy in their teens or even an adult have a voice like Dante.  His voice is so unique which is probably why he voices so many characters. I don't think anyone can really sound like Zuko, but maybe exhibit his frustration and conflict?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Sanhlami on August 14, 2008, 11:38:52 PM
^ Put any acting experience. I don't think skits count, but anything official like a drama class/any class that promotes acting, or school play is good to put in.


So does anybody know if its September 2 or September 15 for sure (deadline for Aang). Because if its September 15 it can make a little difference for me for the better.

I'm still wondering why thelastairbendercasting.com has 2 different dates. Is it a typo?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued

Well, FINALLY I'm back with pictures of my new cut and color! Of course, I have no makeup on or anything.. But well, they will do to show the main point ^.^

The color has faded a bit.. Bright color tends to do that.. But this will probably be an odd tint of pink by the time school starts.. Oh no!!  :o

Post by: Sanhlami on August 14, 2008, 11:54:08 PM
I would suggest going to yellow pages, looking up the keywords like "cash loan" or something like that, put in your adress and you'll get something. You are 18, I'm pretty sure you go there and just sign your name and maybe a little payper work. Although you have to pay them back, don't want to be in debt now  ;D

Idk, I haven't tried it, you could try it if its your last resort, just suggesting  :D

Post by: GotRice on August 14, 2008, 11:59:17 PM
reichan I have glasses...
it doesnt mean you have to buy the contacts yourself
they will get one for you if you get the part...
it doesnt also mean you have to have exactly blue eyes
or anything...
they can change those stuff
and in your Audition video just dont wear the glasses and
just act without them...
thats what i did...
but dont forget to mention you have glasses in your resume
or video atleast i think...
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 15, 2008, 12:00:24 AM
Ok 3 things.
1: GotRice, you could try asking them. Could you say "We need new ink cartrages. May I buy some?"
    There's got to be SOME way you can get 20 dollars from them. If you told them that it was really important to you, I'm sure they have to at least hear you out.  :-\ I dunno, bud. That's a tough call!! You have to get the money from somewhere, and I think they're your only hope.

2: Babyloutattoo, I think you look a lot like Suki! You definitely have the right eyes and smile. :)

3: reichan, the color of your eyes is the least of your worries. :) Contacts are cheaper than glasses, and you could stick it somewhere in your description in your resume that you wear contacts/glasses. :) You'll be fine.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Sanhlami on August 15, 2008, 12:03:13 AM
I would suggest not wearing glasses if you can still act without them. The casting people probably just wants to see your face features at its best, but just put it in your resume/tell them. You don't HAVE to buy contacts just for an audition video, unless you are planning to use it from then on.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: dripdrop24 on August 15, 2008, 12:03:43 AM
it is better to have glasses bc then you are already used to wearing contacts ;) ( well usually)

hmmm...
is the words...
"we clearly DO NOT want any part of your acting career end of discussion!!
you will be a doctor!!!!"

Im alone in this one lol...
but if I do get a callback they will let me go
but as for getting an actual callback Im on my own...
I even tried to fake act cry lol almost work but moms..ugh
they know when you lying or not....
my dad almost gave it to me lol....
the only money I can get is if I exchange my american money then I have
$120 canadian lol....

not just in appearance but also as in attitude and life...
then a guy like that can really act out Zuko but not just acting
the character....hes also acting himself...
which is what I like about actors they relate the characters on
what happened in their life...

Anyway, it wouldn't matter :) The only girl available is Katara, so if they wanted you for anyone else it'd be up to them. ;)
It's that one girl who likes Zuko in Ba Sing Se...

Also, GotRice, I think you do need an account in the bank....

Sorry for having so many questions guys  :-\ but since I should turn it in by Saturday I'm in kind of a hurry.

yes that does count, any class that helps or promotes acting will count. Any official experience in your whole life counts.

i dont know..
Zuko just doesnt seem to fit you. lol jk    ;) :)
you knida remind me of a woman from Katara and Sokka's Water Tribe Village.
she was really pretty! :)
you look like someone who would be a waterbender. ;D
you look gentle and nice, but can be deadly when necessary. O_O

he looks to pampered and fake lol...
i want at least somebody that can really relate to Zuko
not just in appearance but also as in attitude and life...
then a guy like that can really act out Zuko but not just acting
the character....hes also acting himself...
which is what I like about actors they relate the characters on
what happened in their life...
then a guy like that would be worthy...
did that make sense?


Yeah :) It did.           I know this is extreme, but kinda like Heath Ledger and Joker. However, I don't think the actor needs to be like Zuko in real life, as long as he can connect with Zuko and realistically bring him out.

GotRice, you have to get the money!! Hmmmmmm there HAS to be another way!!!

Let's see... Could you borrow 20 from a friend, and pay them back later?
I'm sure there's SOMEONE who is willing to lend you twenty quid if you promise to pay them back.

no because it was proven that he took too many sleeping pills.
he was not suicidal, but after he played the Joker, many people beleive that role made him go kinda loopy.  :-[
but like Johnny Depp.
i heard he would go around and have people call him by his characters name instead of his whenever he would do a movie (which was alot of times!!) and that he would take his character too seriously.

what better way to connect to a character than actually living a similar life than that of the character lol
but yes he should at least connect and feel what the character feels lol
and be able to express it on his own...

and hmm
well first off i dont think its $20 to send stuff
when I went to the post office to buy stamps at least
I saw someone pay $27...plus tax since if your in Canada...
plus I also need to buy stamps...
I also need to send in my Aang video...and it has to be in a different
envelope
cause 1 goes to Gail Levin and 1 goes to the Paramount one

all in all I kinda need maybe like $70 maybe..
30$ each just to make sure I pay for everything
the other $10 for bus and stamps lol

I dont want to ask my friend $70
I still owe him lol O.o
Ill try anyways thx Pirate lol
I was like panicking i forgot about that!!

I don't know about you, but I think Jack Sparrow is the best character in that movie. haha I respect Mr. Depp for that  ;D

And you're welcome, GotRice! I think if anyone deserves an audition for all of their hard work, it is you.

got rice, if you dont want to be a doctor talk to your parents about it. If they are shortsighted, it may be hard to get them to see your side, but if you try to think of their point of view and reason with them, I'm sure it would be better in the long run. Or if you dont want to be that outright or deal with your parents, you could try to reason them down a bit. Most medical schools reccomend you take the first semester or year of college off, to pursue other interests and build life experience. They actually perfer it, because it builds a wider range of experience and understanding, and helps you to focus your goals to know what you actually want to do. Most kids who go into college thinking they want to do something realize after a semester or two that it really isnt right for them, and they burn out and have to start over. Theres a bunch of news articles about that stuff online, so you could always show them to your parents to try and reason with them. OOR you could just go spend a day working under the table doign yard work or random stuff, and easily make enough money.

I'm taking Japanese in college! I would've started earlier, but they don't offer it at my school, and my parents aren't very willing to put money into learning it.. So I'm waiting. And that's probably not the best idea.. But it's the best I can do for now =/

GotRice and every other person here who's having the same problem, good luck and I hope your parents will understand and I wish you luck with your videos!

I don't know how I could do my video...I really need at least my siblings to leave the house to do this so I could focus. And not to mention I don't want a bunch of screaming kids running around acting like thier being murdered or something stupid while I'm trying to film. :P


babylou, I love your hair! ;D And there is nothing wrong with being Mexican!!!!!

I'm petty much Iron Curtain as far as heritage goes. :p Then there's Cherokee Indian and some French...I guess this is all leading to the conclusion that even when I'm of legal drinking age I should avoid alcohol  at all cost. XD

Or do I have to send something there and if, where ???
I know it's late but I just found this Forum, I always thought the roles are already casted...
You gave me hope!!!! ;)... or not because it's too late isn't it??
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 15, 2008, 10:41:36 AM
Ack, I'm just French, Polish, and some Irish.
Not all that wickedly interesting.
And I don't have plans to learn any of their languages.
I'm already half-fluent at Spanish, practically.
And it's a fun language.

And I think my parents want me to go to med school.
But they, thoughtfully, kept it to themselves.

And there are no open casting calls.

You can send a head shot and a resume, and possibly a video, to Gail Levin.
The address is a few pages back.

Post by: happyelectrons on August 15, 2008, 11:43:43 AM
Ok so since some of you asked questions to Paramount and got more specific answers I decided to create a fake e-mail and ask some of my own:

I sent this:

'Hello,
                  I submitted via actorsaccess for one of the roles listed there. I was wondering if you guys had begun the process of calling back actors for characters or if you are waiting for all the submissions to be turned in before you call anyone?  Also, will you be calling back actors who don't live in California? One more, I'm sure that thousands of submissions have already been turned in, out of those how many do you expect will get a callback for each character? I'd appreciate a reply. Don't mean to be a bother.'

They replied:

'Yes, we have begun calling in actors from their submissions, but it is an ongoing process that will continue for at least several more weeks.

While we are looking at submissions from outside of California, we had only asked that the breakdown go out in Los Angeles.  An actor who is not represented by an agency would have to be really extraordinary for us to request them to audition from somewhere else.

I hope that answers your questions.'

So I hope ur extraordinary... I know my video shows great potential but extraordinary?? That's a strong word. But I'm still hopeful though they said they are still looking at the ones from outside the state.

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: vamptasticavatar on August 15, 2008, 12:00:04 PM
Oh boy
extraordinary is a big word
oh well, I'm not giving up
maybe they will think we are extraordinary :)
because *ahem* we ARE
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Alana1991 on August 15, 2008, 12:08:26 PM
wow...I really hope they accept you guys! I agree and that IS in fact a big word. :-[...

I do think you guys will do good!

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: wingman on August 15, 2008, 12:15:33 PM
That is actually.. discouraging. I didn't even have a monologue or side in mine  :-[! I just tried to do it, so they would remember me! But it makes no sense if they want unknowns... why would it matter about having an agent or not? Idk this just makes me pretty frustrated
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: vamptasticavatar on August 15, 2008, 12:48:49 PM
I agree
we are getting mixed messages from everyone
OH
I JUST HAD A THOUGHT
GAHHHH
Maybe Aibel wasn't lying!! Maybe actorsaccess and that Aang site ARE only casting the 4 main roles and Aibel is casting the secondary main characters.
He said main but they are just not the MAIN main. They are secondary main characters.
And I remember someone said information on secondary characters would come later. Aibel said info in September. Then this all goes back to my theory that they want more experienced actors/actresses as the leads (except Aang who they want totally fresh) 
So they said you need an agent

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 15, 2008, 01:31:58 PM
hmmm that's a real annoyance...
:) I guess if you've sent in, all you can do now is wait... I still have confidence that one of us will make it!
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 15, 2008, 01:38:49 PM
wow that word is really discouraging...
I mean if they really want to find the best...
why are they only trying to limit it for people who have agents...
weve work so hard trying to find auditions...
this is like a slap in our faces...
probably some of us sacrificed at least something to try to get an audition...
I mean we still have a chance
but we have a lesser chance than people who have agents
a lot lesser....
I hope everyone atleast gets a callback from this forum
I mean probably out of all the people who wants to audition for this movie
we are the most deserving people to get callback...
.....
I mean "extraordinary"?
ughh
this isnt fair....

I mean my chances now...

I dont have an agent
I live outside of USA
I have no formal acting experience...

my chance is like less than 1% lol

well the world is a cruel place what can I say...

but gotRice if they looked at Jonathan Nguyen and Ether Brent supposedly...
they would be looking at other countries too...
and Canada isnt far from US lol its on top of the US...

and guys dont give up hope yet...
like my moms says "everything happens for a reason"
every bad thing is followed up by a good thing...
you just got to believe...

but yes I also believe it isnt fair...
and something good will come up soon...if not this movie something different
you'll see  :)

dang now i feel all bad :(
BUT I SHALL NEVER GIVE UP!!! All we here can do is hope for the best (or more of us gets a callback) because i didnt come this far to bow down to some stupid rules I WILL NOT EVER LOSE HOPE! FOR THIS ROLE...THIS ROLE IS WHAT I WAS WAITING FOR!
my family is behind me 100% (ok about 92% :P ) my friends back me up to the fullest, my mom's spirit is within me, and my mind is set! I WONT GIVE UP UNTIL THE AIR IN MY LUNGS IS NO MORE, until the thoughts in my head cease, until the blood in my veins run dry or until I Rachel L McD. CEASE TO EXIST!!!!

yeah I live in Texas which is why I asked. And I agree too about extraordinary. I mean how are you supposed to show that in a home video. Ugh. I still have hope but... damn, extraordinary?? It'll be a nice surprise if they call me back. And again if it's meant to happen it will. To quote Iroh, "Destiny is a funny thing."

Post by: DAang on August 15, 2008, 02:58:56 PM
So for the hard copy resume you list yourself as Non-Union if you have no affiliation with an agent right?
Also it seems that you don't list your age on your resume.. how will they know how old you are?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Alana1991 on August 15, 2008, 03:13:29 PM
Vamp. that sort of makes sense.  :-\ I hope your right.


This sucks guys. Sorry for being negative, but it does.  :'( >:( :-\ :-[

I agree that everything happends for a reason, I do, so I don't think this is the end...if none of us end up in this movie it only means this wasn't our time. I know for one thing this has given me a big wake up call, and as corney as this sounds this made me gain back some hope I've sort of lost and it motivated me. I know this has motivated all of you and if anything this just shows how much you can gain if you work and don't give up.

Incredibly corney but true. :P I'm not saying give up on the movie though...something might come up, we never know.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 15, 2008, 03:50:46 PM
 :) As an optimist, it's my job to go to THE DICTIONARY!!!

I am feeling much better as I read this, because I know we all know what extraodinary means, but this gives me some hope:

1. beyond what is usual, ordinary, regular, or established 
2. exceptional in character, amount, extent, degree, etc.; noteworthy

I'm feeling confident, because the one thing to remember when you make a resume is to put something that makes you stand out.
The resume and picture of mine were not as formal as they probably could have been, because I sent in the day after the Breakdown on actorsacces. However, I think (hope) the information on the resume will make me stand out. :)
:D ONE OF US WILL MAKE IT.

Post by: Matt800 on August 15, 2008, 05:10:12 PM
how is that bad news though? if you arent extraordinary how could you expect to get a part anyways? The best suited people will get the parts, so it doesnt actually change anything. They are basically just saying, they arent going to take chances on peopel who dont look like a character, unless they have agents and are experienced probably. doesnt change anything at all.

I think you're right. They're just now putting it into an email. They've been looking for someone who looks like the character and has something on their resume. Don't let this discourage you, well...you shouldn't let this discourage you.

Yeah, there are two parts that really bother me: The whole L.A. thing, and the fact about the agents. I agree with Matt800, and I think I could play the role though. But when I sent mine in, I didn't send in a video, because they didn't ask me to make one yet. So... :-\

hey, I'm here. I didn't send in a video either, because they didn't ask for one.
I really think (and hope :) ) my resume is noteworthy enough for a callback though.
Also, I'm assuming she emailed thelastairbendercasting. :)
Guys, I agree with Matt. You shouldn't let the "extraordinary" thing discourage you.
Nothing has changed; it's not like some huge new info was just put out.  :)
I have high hopes for all of you!  :D

(A side-note, I finally got my driver's permit today! ;D I'm through procrastinating! If nothing else, this whole audition thing has taught me that if I want to get something done, I have to get it done right away. As cheesy as it sounds, I think we've all benefitted from this in at least one way.)  ;D

Amen to the benefits of this audition process/forum. Cheesy is good sometimes, just look at cheez-its ;D

Hey. Seriously, don't worry about the extraordinary thing. It'll be ok  in the end.

Union means that you are part of AFTRA or SAG or another acting union. It has nothing to do with having an agent.

BTW, if you want to see the letter I attached to my resume and photos, here it is:

Dear Ms. Levin;
   Earlier today, I spoke with a representative of the casting department of Paramount. Per his instructions, I am sending you this headshot and resum? for ?The Last Airbender? casting call. I also included a photoshopped picture of myself, considering one character, Princess Yue, has different characteristics than myself. I realize there may have been some confusion regarding the final date of casting for the first installment of the trilogy. I am anxious to be considered for an audition for this production. I hope to hear from you soon regarding an audition time and date. I live in {place}, however I would welcome any opportunity to audition for this trilogy, and as such, I can travel outside {place} if necessary. Please feel free to e-mail or call me (numbers) at any time after you have looked at my resum? and headshot.

That's it. ;D

My uncle, who is prominent in that kiind of writing helped me. lol. that's why it sounds so professional.  :D

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 15, 2008, 07:12:36 PM
:) I included a letter with my resume as well.
I put in 3 avatar puns, so I hope Ms. Levin picks up on them.
One of them was something like
"I hope I can exhibit my 'fiery' passion for drama... (etc)"
;D

I have high hopes for ALL of us!!!  :D

You have to be invited to be apart of one of those unions right?

Post by: iamkatara on August 15, 2008, 07:35:25 PM
You have to work on a SAG or AFTRA set to be able to apply. Like, if they wanted you for Avatar bad enough, even though you're not union, they'd take you on, and after the movie you would be able to apply for the "SAG card" or "AFTRA card". It basically says what you need(pay amount, food, stuff like that). I've looked pretty deep into this stuff. lol

No new real info. People are just getting anxious.

Ok.

Considering 'extraordinary' - We are extraordinary. We, non-professionals, went through a lot of trouble to even get the chance to audition. We cover every pain staking detail. Made headshots, resumes, just for this. Just for this! That's extraordinary, we're extraordinary, because we care so much for the characters, for story, for it itself.

Nothing new at all.
Just wait.
Persevere.

Post by: happyelectrons on August 16, 2008, 08:49:15 AM
Yeah, there are two parts that really bother me: The whole L.A. thing, and the fact about the agents. I agree with Matt800, and I think I could play the role though. But when I sent mine in, I didn't send in a video, because they didn't ask me to make one yet. So... :-\

And Happyelectrons, I don't think you said who you e-mailed. Who was it? Paramount Pictures?

yeah i e-mailed [email protected]

I just thought it was a little discouraging because when I think of extraordinary actors I think Oscar worthy performances. Idk, maybe I was making a bigger deal of it than it actually was. I still will be surprised if I get a callback, I guess it will mean they think I'm extraordinary. Not to say I suck or anything but you know what I mean. lol. Good luck to everybody over these next few weeks. I hope we all get callbacks.

In order to keep my mind at ease, I sent my head shot in for another movie  ;D. Unfortunately, I really don't have anything to put on a resume, but I'm hoping I don't need one  ???. Yeah idk... But I found another movie that seemed interesting on actorsaccess, so I just sent it electronically. Hopefully, I'll get a call back for one of these movies!

only problem now is Post office close till

man are you sure that they really said hand it in by the end f the week...
who were you talking to...Gail Levin's office...
or The email address?

Air mail is faster right but cost more?

Good job, GotRice!!!! :D Airmail is much faster.

YAAAY You're Iroh today, bright!

I'm really excited!! However, today is my last Saturday before school starts!!!  :-\

And I agree! I think it's pretty extraordinary that a bunch of people with such little knowledge at the start could have learned so much and made it this far. I think at least one of us should get an audition, and they can be the ambassador for all of us. :)

I have high hopes!!! One of us can make it!

EDIT:::: More than one of us can make it ;D haha We've come this far, I think we've got a chance to go a lot farther.

gwags, the deadlines are basically:
ASAP. We don't know for sure. Aang's is Setpember 2nd or 15, so we assume 2nd just in case.
Everyone else is very very very soon. They said callbacks end at the end of this month.
 :D Get your stuff in, mate!
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: shadowbender on August 16, 2008, 03:09:00 PM
Hey guys. Now, I'm the one getting anxious. It just seems like a long time since I sent my stuff in, and yet, they haven't called back. Do you think it usually takes this long?

And Gary, the deadline for Aang is either September 2 or September 15. As for the rest of the cast, ASAP. I suggest you do it REALLY soon, because it's been about half a month since they released info on Auditions on Actor's Access.

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: NinjaBlank on August 16, 2008, 05:06:51 PM
Headshots are 8x10 so I'm guessing it should be the size of the regular paper you use.

I'm procrastinating on my video but I'm pushing myself to finish it today >.<

Unfortunately, practically all of my family members are so caught up in the Olympics, my Dad the photographer even went to China yesterday :\

Sigh, I wonder how I'll get this video done by myself... LOTS OF EDITING!!!!!!!!!! :]

YAY!
I get to be Iroh, ahaa.
Yays.
Thanks, IAK and Jeff, for giving me this opportunity to show you that I am, in fact, the destiny-maker.
Now for tea.

If they haven't called back, don't worry.
Stay patient.
They have to call someone at the forums back, and when they do, we'll find out, and we can all expect calls.
BECAUSE WE ARE EXTRAORDINARY!

I expect editing a ton too.
I hope I can do a video that's good enough.

Sana if your using a digital camera...
its best to turn off the flash...
but take pictures only in mornings..
either outside
or a well lit room...with lots of sunlight coming...
also do it in a blank background...if your doing in room
have fun xD
a regular digital camera is all you need xD

and get it develop in a regular photo store lol
I got like 6 8x10 pictures for $3.30
smartest and cheapest way!!

Post by: GotRice on August 17, 2008, 12:10:58 AM
well my name...address...email...birthdate(cause they said in actors access it was imperative lol)
...phone number...the important contact stuff...

then I put my attributes..(eye color, height, etc)
then i put the sad little acting experience i had
and some school classes...

then i put my skills xD...
thats about it....
it was literally almost blank lol
all in all it was a crap resume... ;D

I should have included a letter in my envelope too bad no Ink lol...

Post by: Sana on August 17, 2008, 12:19:56 AM
ooohhhh...!  lol, i dont have any experience besides one theatre credit. so, i doubt i'll get a callback, but it's okay.

what did you include in skills? and what do you mean by 'letter'?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 17, 2008, 12:24:19 AM
well its ok Ive been in one school play too but I was the lead role xD
but matt said they mostly look at your pic and how you look like
and acting they can always teach you I hope lol...

and letter well...
you type a letter saying why should you deserve an audition and
if not that you would gladly take a secondary role or an extra lol...
something like that...

as for my skills...
just some sports and talents i have lol...
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued

oh, so do we have to include a letter?

or at least have already done lol...
anything xD

i hope they really look at my stuff

sana, there is an entire thread devoted to resumes if you want more answers
http://www.mnightfans.com/forums/index.php?topic=1909.60

gotrice, its an acting job so you'll have to be very talented at it, to get a callback--that is if you get an audtion. I mean... if you had every other credential, if you looked, sounded, and did everything EXACTLY like a character, they might give you a break and see if you can improve by a later stage audition. But so far, in my opinion, noone on this forum seems to fit that build. You should probably work a lot on acting if you arent experienced, and want a part.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Sana on August 17, 2008, 12:40:01 AM
and did you do a video, too?

i'll try to think of something...

aw, cheer up! they definitely will look at yours! but i know its nerve wracking waiting while someone passes judgement on you. i used to be in beauty pageants when i was little, and it sucked. BUT, on a happier note, i'm sure you'll pull through
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 17, 2008, 12:51:17 AM
Sana, the beauty pagaent thing is better than nothing!
Can you do a handstand? Put both feet behind your head?
Also, you would want to put down any martial arts experience you might've ever had.
 ;) i put mine in a few days after the breakdown.... I'm hoping they call me too!

I really think one of us will get a callback!  :) Although I know it's unlikely, at least I can be hopeful.

matt just because people have no acting classes or anything doesnt mean that all of us suck at acting here...
look at Harry Potter kids lol. No formal training, whatsoever.

and how can you make that judgement it isnt like youve seen our acting and stuff lol
what if one of us right here, right now is really good at acting.
anyways...
GotRice you already look a part that has to be in avatar lol
I can actually see you as Zuko...good luck to you
and as all of you do, IamKatara, Bright, Jeff, everyone lol
good luck to all of us. including me!! :)

Listen to pirate jeff he knows what hes talking about  ;D put basically anything you think might be a useful skill for the movie. flexibility, gymnastics, sports, martial arts, acting, etc. Yeah a lot of people here have put in quite a bit of time and effort, Id imagine someone will get called in for an audition.

Itoph, read the posts before you criticise. gotrice said something about hoping theyd teach us how to act. I was clarifying that experience is not necessary but skill is. you dont need to have a lot of experience, but you still need to be good at acting. If you think you need work, you should take some classes or practice to increase your chances.  The only way you'd get past initial auditions without much acting skill is if you were almost exactly what they were looking for in a specific character. If that were the case, they might tell you to take acting classes, and see if you improve by a later audition, but in my opinion, no one is that perfect on this forum, so you shouldnt go in to an audition expecting so much lenience. To sum it up, dont assume anything, and prepare as much as you can.

its up to you when you want to send them in. If you are going for aang the deadline is later. other characters, they suggested a few days ago, that you submit immediatley. If you really want a part id suggest sending asap. Its up to you though.

Kuzon you're going for aang right? Are you trying for another character as well? If so, id suggest you submit for that electronically with a resume/photo tomorrow for the other character, and then spend all your time on the aang submission. With your electronic submission you could try to think up a clever reason for why you're sending late, to help increase your chances, you could probably put that in the footnote of your resume or something.

Post by: ForeignBelle14 on August 17, 2008, 10:51:53 AM
I wanted to send it in yesterday, but the little actorsaccess photo editor was telling me that I don't have Flash (which I do) so I couldn't put my pictures on the site and I have to go through an interregation in order to use an avaliable credit card so I'm going to send it in tomorrow through the post office (I'll pay extra to make sure it gets there faster).
I couldn't make a video, but I think my resume is pretty good for a fifteen year old so...*crosses fingers*
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 17, 2008, 12:10:02 PM
what I meant is that if they choose you for an audition
and lets say youve gotten a main role...
and if you have no acting experience or whatsoever
of course they will teach you more...
to improve on your acting...

and mail it kinda depends on where your from and where you sending it to
because i sent mine yesterday in a post office...
and I asked whats the fastest way and they said
express mail...
but since they dont work on sundays..
itll be sent on monday....
and they said my thing will arrive thursday-friday....
I live in BC it just goes down to California lol...

and BC is pretty close to California...unless you sending from NY
it will be longer lol...
i think

I dont think you can pay 1 day...2 day..3 day...
it doesnt work like that..
I hope it did I wouldve so paid for 1 day lol
and ForeignBelle just a heads up...
bring at least $30...I paid $24 for the fastest way lol the other $6 is for back up lol
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: ForeignBelle14 on August 17, 2008, 12:33:15 PM
Aww, I was hoping they would have a 1 Day, 2 Day, etc. I check just to make sure though...
I live in Georgia so it'll probably take awhile to get there...I'm definitely going to have to include a letter in mine, with a sidenote apologizing for it being late  :-\
Hopefully, she won't be too peeved even though my late resume won't exactly be the greatest first impression.

Post by: iamkatara on August 17, 2008, 12:34:59 PM
GotRice.

They won't teach you how to improve your acting. that's why you send in your resume. They can tell from that if you have the talent and the ACTING EXPERIENCE to pull off the job. They only thing they'd help you with is the martial arts because it's choreographed. They won't teach you how to act.

so i just sent in my resume and headshot electronical, does that lessen my chances, you think? it's only because it will be very expensive for me to send a hardcopy all the way from new york.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Sanhlami on August 17, 2008, 01:07:35 PM
I doubt it will lessen your chance. They probably want hard copy because its more convenient for them but they are still going to judge all submissions by the same standard. Don't worry about method of submission. Good luck with your submission.  ;D

Post by: Kuzon on August 17, 2008, 01:14:40 PM
its up to you when you want to send them in. If you are going for aang the deadline is later. other characters, they suggested a few days ago, that you submit immediatley. If you really want a part id suggest sending asap. Its up to you though.

Kuzon you're going for aang right? Are you trying for another character as well? If so, id suggest you submit for that electronically with a resume/photo tomorrow for the other character, and then spend all your time on the aang submission. With your electronic submission you could try to think up a clever reason for why you're sending late, to help increase your chances, you could probably put that in the footnote of your resume or something.

Thanks ;D

Iam katara it's a movie and they invest 2 sequels in you. my guess is they would probably pay foryou to have acting lessons seeing as most teenage actors could easily improve. no point in arguing about it though as it doesnt affect our audition processes. :)

 Got rice if you live in the USA shipping is way easier and less expensive. 1 day shipping is available at fed ex ups and dhl. 1 day costs about 30 or 40 dollars depending on wwhere you live. I'd go with electronic submission if I hadn't submitted yet tho. Itsfaster cheaper (withou a video) and easier.

Aren't they mostly focusing on pictures? For instance, if they feel you are want they want then they ask for a video? I feel slightly bad about not sending a video...
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 17, 2008, 02:18:46 PM
TO ANYONE ASKING ABOUT DEADLINES:

 :) Basically what you need to know is that you should send in right away. It doesn't matter if you think it's too late, because if you send it in now, at least there's the chance that you could get it. If you wait at all, it could be too late.
So as of now, it wouldn't matter if auditions were in a week or a month; the best way to garuntee a callback for yourself is to send in ASAP.
I remember getting freaked out when I read the breakdown that said "It's best to send in the day of the breakdown."

Don't worry about it!

(And thanks, Matt! What do you look like? Probably a picture-perfect Zuko, right? ;) )

P.S. Videos are not necessary. (unless you're an Aangster.) So don't feel bad. All they asked for was a picture and a resume. :)

really..oh well  ;D
i just thought that if you did get a main role and have no experience...
they will help you a bit to get better...
oh well

and arent they looking at people with agents too...
and those guys should have an incredible amount of experiences lol...
videos are not necessary but...
it will help at least a bit if you have a crap resume...
and yes they do look at your picture xD
the most...

Good Luck guys ^^

hey im not joining this forum or anything, so you guys dont have to worry about all these new anxious people running around for answers on these auditions, but im just wanna clear up a few things and be on my way. everyone here seems to have a good idea on auditions, and you all are pulling out such helpful information. but i have a couple questions; how do you know FOR SURE gail levin is the casting director and that doug aibel is lyring? because doug aibel has casted ALL of shymalans movies, so why would someone who has never even casted one of his movies before cast this one? and i understand everything about Aang auditions, but what do you do for other auditions like katara and sokka and zuko? i skipped through a few pages and found that everyone is sending in resumes and headshots. Im just here basically to ask how do i audiiton for someone like katara, sokka, or zuko, like who do i contact,  and who do i send in things to, and i would also like to know if you guys are sure this is the right thing, because i understand you guys have been lied to before. sorry this is so long, anyones answer is appreciated, thank you! :)
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: iamkatara on August 17, 2008, 06:49:44 PM
ok.

Gail levin- she's the casting director because it wouldn't be poseted on a reliable website like actors access if she wasn't. We do believe Aibel has something to do with it, but more for secondary parts.

subscribe for free to actors access to get the address to audition for Katara, Sokka and Zuko.

Skim through the pages to find the address. I'm too lazy to find it(lol).

send an 8x10 headshot(shoulders and up) and your acting resume to Gail

We're pretty sure this is right.

;D

Thanks so muhc. I did go to actors acess and couldnt find anything about thel ast airbender? If anyone does know the adress to send things into for characters like katara sokka or zuko could you please post it? sorry for the hassle once againi just dont want to be completley helpless.

But what should I do in it?
(And I can't do it now, I need to wash my hair, and do some nice make-up, and etc.)
I'm hoping for maybe anyone volunteering an itenerary?
What did you all do and say?

Post by: NinjaBlank on August 17, 2008, 08:06:44 PM
Wow, lots of posting so far! :]
Anyways, it seems that things are coming closer together if they haven't already.
In the video, you state your name, where you live, age...etc.
Then you read a monologue and optionally show a footage of you acting or doing your martial arts.

i  need to stop procrastinating with the video! i have a pretty good resume but bc school is starting i have no time for the video! i am so sad  :'( do you think i should just turn in the resume and headshot without the video before it is to late?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Alana1991 on August 17, 2008, 08:42:44 PM
maybe...I might not have time for a video myself...too much going on. :( So I might send in a resume and headshot myself if anything, or take the big risk and wait for more news to come around on auditions, since more news on minor characters comes later. :-\

I really think (and hope) Azula will be in the second movie and not the first, I'm praying I'm not wrong on this one.  :(

Should someone call Aibel again to see if he is casting secondary characters? Or would that just be bugging him again. :P
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Sanhlami on August 17, 2008, 08:57:45 PM
People have called enough. They said that they are interested in the main characters only right now, and secondary characters will come at another time. But you can still send your stuff if you want.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued

Do you think they would lie about the secondary characters at all?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: DAang on August 17, 2008, 09:28:51 PM
Just a quick question,
Did any of you add anything to your resume about what role you desire?
I know iamkatara sent an attached letter, any other ways to do it or
do you not do it at all?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Sanhlami on August 17, 2008, 09:38:34 PM
You can always just put "Desired Role:....." on your resume. Thats what I'm probably going to do. Its not really that big of a deal.

They probably aren't lieing, the main characters are important so they want to do it first. I'm just wondering what their methods are of casting the secondary characters. Are they going to pick some people from the submission pile, or get people with agents, or have a public walk in audition, or etc....
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 17, 2008, 10:17:51 PM
I'm assuming, for secondary characters, they will probably have some people in mind, either from agents, or from the resumes. I assume they will keep with the resumes and agents, like they have. If they won't do an open call for the MAIN characters, then they probably won't for the secondary characters.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: endurancekarmatiffany on August 17, 2008, 11:06:57 PM
i agree with bright
from what people have learned from replied emails, apparently secondary characters will most likely be casted from people that have agents or at least people who stay updated in what goes on in the acting world (for example, checking actorsaccess.com) . they won't just be doing open casting calls

hes probably doing later casting stages, or was doing the casting but they got a new person for some reason, or is doing secondary characters. Im sure he didnt intentionally claim to be the director knowing he wasnt. I wouldnt worry about it though, paramount is who we care about right now.

Post by: luna secret on August 18, 2008, 10:09:17 AM
I'm not trying to break your guy's spirit or anything like that, but I just thought I'd ask..why would "actorsaccess.com" be a legit website for ALL characters when Aang is being casted by Paramount? I mean I would believe it if they didnt have Aang on there, but they do and that seems odd to me because, well nickelodean and paramount are casting Aang, NOT actorsaccess. idk it seems fishy to me, but im probably wrong, just thought I'd put that out there.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: happyelectrons on August 18, 2008, 10:30:47 AM
On the actorsaccess breakdown Paramount is listed there too. Trust me it's legit. You can't put something fake like that on actorsaccess. It's way to legit for this to be some big hoax.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: vamptasticavatar on August 18, 2008, 12:36:20 PM
I said my theory to him a while back
someone said secondary characters would be casted later

he may be casting secondary characters

actorsaccess is Legit...as far as I know  ::)
books recommended it
people recommended it
sites recommended it
so as far as i know its legit...
and Ive contacted Paramount and ask if they can direct me to Gail Levin office...they did
and I asked if they are accepting submissions through actorsaccess
they said yes...
and also the mailing address is the same from actorsaccess and the "Aang site"
except its addressed to Gail Levin...
so it is Legit....
and actually Aang was posted first in actoraccess for submmisions
and 5 days after that the "Aang site" popped up...
so basically the people who posted in actorsaccess first knew
where the mailing adress were and the description of Aang was even exactly the same lol
12-15 etc etc must be graceful .... everything lol
so it is legit as far as I know  :P
but we could be wrong though..

The mailing address is the same on the Aang website and actorsaccess, so it wouldn't matter anyway.

if you live near a fed ex kinkos you could do most of it there. You can print 8x10 photos, etc and ship it all. Resumes are easy. theres like a million templates online for them, and actors access had one too. Just keep it really neat, organized, and easy to read. Include everything you think has helped you become better suited for the role you're interested in. EX: classes, acting, martial arts, gynmastics, skills, talents, etc. Keep in mind what you think they are looking for, and put everything down that makes you fit that description. Try not to over do it, or under do it. If you're having trouble, just do what you can. As long as you give them a decent description of your qualifications you'll be fine.

Yeah I agree with Jeff

Unless you are going with that Aang site there was nothing that specified a video
At this point it's better to send in just the resume and headshot then trying to find some means of video producing

but I have one thing to add

DON'T FEEL RUSHED AND MAKE IT BAD OR ANYTHING
still make sure that is is what you want to send in and you aren't going to get home and be like "CRAP I forgot to mention I have a background in gymnastics" or something of that sort

So try and hurry but still make it good :)

Definitely reccomended I was rushing slightly and forgot to mention the training I had in acting. Though it's not that much (just a theatre class when I was 10 and the course I'm taking now in class), but it would've been nice to put on there.

But, I suggest having a good reason why you're sending it so late because they wanted them in by the beginning of this week...and it's the beginning of this week.

RUSH!..but don't rush...I guess

Definitely reccomended I was rushing slightly and forgot to mention the training I had in acting. Though it's not that much (just a theatre class when I was 10 and the course I'm taking now in class), but it would've been nice to put on there.

But, I suggest having a good reason why you're sending it so late because they wanted them in by the beginning of this week...and it's the beginning of this week.

RUSH!..but don't rush...I guess

we actually just assumed that this week was about when they would stop looking at submissions. I think they stopped really wanting submissions well over a week ago. Generally breakdowns on actors access are expected to receive all their submissions within the first few days up to around the first week since they introduce it. Its been up for about 3 weeks, soo if you havent sent in, keep in mind you're 1 or 2 weeks past when they expected all their submissions. If you want a part, I would strongly recommend you send it tonight electronically over actors access. and as vamp said... try to add a clever reason for why you are sending late. It might help your chances.

If you are going for aang or a character that wasnt listed on the breakdown, you can take more time. If your character wasnt listed, I would suggest you either wait until they send a breakdown out for them, or send in anyways and hope they look at it.


sorry to hear about your day kuzon. What roles are you submitting for anyways?

Honestly I don't know, who do you think I should submit for? :-\

I was just going to request for an audition for the last airbender...

I really sorry about bringing up all the bad news to you guys. :-[ :'(

Post by: Matt800 on August 19, 2008, 10:16:59 PM
haha umm, i thought you were doing aang. i think that might be your best shot--especially now considering lateness for other submissions. If you want to try for someone else like zuko or sokka, id suggest just sending something on electronically tonight. if you do that, dont just throw it together, make sure its good, but keep in mind the time constraints.

also for the ages they request for characters, keep in mind thats like their idea of what might work, its not a "rule" or mandatory criteria. I am aware of many many people who have gotten parts in things when they were much younger or older than requested.

Post by: IToph on August 19, 2008, 11:11:56 PM
trying to be realistic here...but uhh 1 weeks worth of submmision is really not realistic at all, yes its been 3 weeks...
but you guys are saying they just stopped for just a week and that they probably stopped taking submissions like 2 weeks 1 week ago?
I mean it was posted in actorsaccess in July 30th and a week after that they dont want any more people?...
that isnt really much then...
I mean if it ended...then all of us should have sent it before july 10 at least...thats 1 week ago from now...
10 days? really? I mean i can understand 3 weeks worth of submission.
but 10 days?
I mean in those 10 days yo u have to include
photo time
video time
and the amount of time the post office takes...
seriously then it will have like 4 days of submmision there...
i think when they meant callbacks would be happening by the end of the month
it meant like a week before september
thats enough time for callbacks...a week...not freaking from july 11 to september 30th!
and theyre saying not many people are getting callbacks i mean july 11 till sept 30
is 3 weeks....honestly if they had stopped taking submissions it will be taken out
from the actorsaccess site all ready...
they just said callbacks will start happening by the end of the month...
its not even end of the month yet...but yes pple should send it now ASAP
you have 2 weeks left!
but i dont believe it means that they stopped taking submmisions 1 week ago...
I mean thats too early for any type of movie...

Post by: IToph on August 19, 2008, 11:27:07 PM
well Im just actually basing this in Math...Probability
given the amount of time that people didnt really know about actorsacess
we found out it was on the site after 2 days
so 2 days there gone...and thats only for us...how bout the other thousands of kids thats not on this forum
amount of time that people thought video has to be created 1-2 days gone
people had to buy pictures mine took like 3 days so basing this
2-3 days gone(unless people used printed)...I also remember shadowbender bought picture didnt it take like 5 days...
I mean seriously thats at least a week trying to be prepared to send stuff
then theres the post office 1-3 days gone...
so judging by the times people would have sent their stuff
from August 9-16...
thats like 1 week of submmisions...
and you guys are telling that a week ago they might have stopped...think about it a week ago from now is august 12
so from july 30 to august 12 minus the preperation time for some people...
thats not alot of time then
this is a huge movie a short amount of time is not enough to look for people...
honestly

Well, IToph, as much as I hope you're correct, the small window is because if your on actor's access, you're supposed to have an resume and headshot already done, and current, that you can just order or print again.
I'd assume they didn't think a bunch of non-professionals were going to get the address and send in millions of things, so they didn't really allow for that.
None the less, I would assume they would still check your stuff, even if you did send it late, but they would probably pay less attention.
Which just means- SEND IN SOON!

Post by: GotRice on August 20, 2008, 12:51:32 AM
well firstly, when Happyelectrons(bless her little heart  ;)) called paramount and said to direct her to Gail Levin's office
they said that they are looking at everything and that you dont need agents. So basically, that non-professional theory
is not going to work, a) because actorsaccess.com is a public website b) they would only send it to agencies if they want professionals
and c) they said they will look at everything.
well I know what you mean also bright of having your stuff already but...they are looking at everything
that includes also us Non-professionals and plus...
i mean think about it, seriously, this big of a movie, that wants unknown actors will only post the submissions
for a week?
a week?
and compare the time they posted "Aang Site" and its deadline, it was posted on the internet August 5 it ends in September 15
thats more than a month...
and compare it to the time actorsaccess was posted and the "assumed" deadline July 30th to August 12
thats only 2 weeks right there.
it doesnt make sense for submissions for a BIG Movie to be over in 2 weeks.
I atleast expect a month thats the right time...

just trying to look in the Bright side here but yes i agree with Itoph
2 weeks of submissions is kinda iffy...
where did you get the response from whoever got the info that they stopped
taking submissions? ??? just asking?
and people send it in ASAP!!!!

it just doesnt seem right for 2 weeks
even if your a professional it should take longer than that
I mean i also have actor friends lol
and also I just remember I read somewhere
that in school plays it usually takes 3 weeks for a person to get a callback?
if a school takes 3 weeks and a huge movie takes 2 or less
thats kinda dumb isnt it?

i've been on this forum for a while now and i have written anything because i'm no really social on the net, but seeing you guys are really nice, i gave in.
so is anyone posting audition videos online for everyone to see? i'm thinking about it just for the critiques but i donno if its allowed due to the script copyright and stuff

I REALLY HOPE that they dont just look at the headshots and not bother to look at some people's videos

oh and kuzon i think u really look like aang

None the less, I would assume they would still check your stuff, even if you did send it late, but they would probably pay less attention.
Which just means- SEND IN SOON!

I agree bright.  They dont provide a generous time window for people to "make a submission." Actors Access is an acting website to submit for roles. They assume you already have a resume and headshot. Videos are commonly for demo reels. Most roles they want you to submit within the first day or two, but because this is a large movie, they were looking for about 1-2 weeks worth of submissions. I know this as a fact because I emailed them about it last week. They said they had recieved pretty much all the submissions they had expected, and seemed surprised to think that anyone interested would not have submitted already. They said to submit immediatley if you hadnt already, and that was last Wednesday I believe.

I do agree that they will probably still look at your submissions if you get them to them within the next day or two, but after this week, id assume they would stop giving them much attention, if any. They have thousands of submissions already, and are planning on starting the callback phase in september. They have to work on calling people about auditions now, so realistically if you sent in now, they would barely have the time to get to your submission, and even consider it by september. These are not assumptions, this information has all been gathered from people contacting paramount casting via email or phone.


--so to sum it up: know they have thousands to get through and not much time to do so. If you want to be considered for Katara, Zuko or Sokka, your best chance would be to send immediately. If you want to go for aang I would suggest focusing a lot of time and energy into that submission and getting it done well and in early. The earlier you get it in, the sooner they will get to it most likely.

Those of you that want aang, one plus to getting to work ASAP is you can then post a rough video on youtube, and we can try to provide help for you to make a better final version. That way you can end up with the best submission possible. If you dont have a video camera, printer ink, someone to help, etc..get them somehow. If you want the part, give it your best shot so you wont have any regrets.  ;D

wow. nice advice matt800. I agree about the deadline stuff. If you haven't sent it, DO IT NOW. They've already started the weeding out process and if you want to be included I suggest getting a move on. U've known about this for weeks.

I've been waiting for 2 weeks now. I sent my stuff in like August 1st. Still nothing. I hope that's not a bad sign. They said that they've already started calling actors back. At this point I just hope they have me in the call back later pile.

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 20, 2008, 11:47:04 AM
See, GotRice and IToph, I really hope you all are correct, mostly because I want to be considered, but with one or two weeks they have received thousands of resumes. Which means my advice is - SEND IN NOW!
The limited time frame is due to trying to get everything done soon, soon, soon.
Sound stages start in September, filming actually starts in Spring, and the actors, once they are chosen, must memorize the script, most likely get some training for the martial arts... and so on.

And I feel terribly young!
I'm going into eighth grade.
On Thursday.
Tomorrow.
And I'm only thirteen right now!
But before filming, I turn fourteen.

hey guys I notice on some of the threads on Imdb they said callbacks are happening and auditions
and saying their son/daughter went to the auditions and stuff allready
so does that mean they call you when they recieve you?
if that hapened then that would suck for most people who sent it before...

Haha guys, there's no point arguing about when a deadline is.

Whether that deadline is in 2 days, or 2 weeks, you are so much safer if you send in the best product you can as soon as you can.

Paramount told me: "Most likely, if you don't get called by the end of the month, you won't get called."

That means that the deadline is in 1 and 1/2 weeks. BUT they might stop reading them before then.
They might get their favorites, narrow it down, then call for ones they already have.
And if you figure mailing times, the fact that they probably won't read it the same day you send it in, and the fact that a ton of other people are sending in, you best bet is to send in as soon as you can, regardless of when the due-date is.

 :) Make the best resume possible, send in as soon as possible. :D You'll be fine if you do that!

jeff you make some good points, but you're not taking into consideration they already have thousands and it takes a long time to get through them. if they get a new submission around now, it would probably take them 2-3 weeks to even get to it, which is cutting it very close. If anything the "deadline" has already past. If you havent submitted, i would strongly suggest you submit a resume and photo electronically and hope for the best. I honestly would not submit via mail right now, because there is no guarantee they will even get to it. I assume they would, but its really not worth the 30 dollars for shipping. plus they can probably sift through the electronic submissions faster, so i think it'd increase your chances.

thats really all that needs to be said about this. i think we should move on to those trying out for aang and help them as much as possible.

isnt it the other way around?...well whatever happens its meant to happen!

Hey guys, you really have known about this for weeks. It's all very simple: Go on Actors Access, create a file, make your resume, and post up headshots of yourself on the website. Then, you go to "The Last Airbender" breakdown page, and you click on the character you want to audition for. Then you just pay $2. Easy as that. You never had to make a video, only when they told you to. Very simple. I'm not trying to be mean, but you guys were making it so complicated. If you wanted to audition for Aang, you could go on thelastairbendercasting.com and follow the directions. They should be wrapping up who they want to call back, being that sets are being held this month. So, I'd say get it done by this weekend, and I think after that they should be done if they aren't already. So do it ASAP, and good luck.

People are just urging other people who haven't submitted audition material to do so asap because supposedly the casting people have recieved all the submissions they expect to get
and as for callbacks, no one here has gotten one yet :/
or if they have, they're doing a great job of keeping mum

If I don't get one before September Fifteenth, I'll assume no good.

And if you haven't sent it, screw the video and just send in.

Bravo, you got guts for being the first person to post up their video. It was pretty good.

Thanks for posting, I just needed 1 person to post a video to be satisfied.

Are those your brothers and sisters reading the other lines?

You're korean aren't you...?

And Z916 that video was pretty good.
Take guts to post, and you have them!

Post by: dajanerz on August 21, 2008, 12:25:17 AM
hello - there are over 80 pages to this bulletin and i'm new so i will apologize now if this is old info.

BUT, Just to let you all know, if you're in the Las Vegas area, there will be open call auditions next week for Aang at the Tuscany Suites and Casino.

here's the link:
http://www.kungfuchampionship.com/thelastairbender.htm

my son is competing at this event and will also be auditioning for Aang.  we've already sent his resume and headshot through actors access.  good luck to everyone!  

omg wow! that's totally new information! no one has mentioned it yet. Thanks for sharing it :)
There's a lot of aang hopefuls on here so I'm sure someone will be happy
oh, and don't apoligize!
good luck to your son at the event :D
just wondering, after submitting his material through actors access, was your son contacted from gail levin or anyone involved in casting?

We just submitted tonite.  We'll see what happens...
We haven't made the audition/side videos yet, but he has a bunch of vids on youtube of his martial arts, hip hop dancing, and trampoline stuff.  He really wants to get into acting.  He just turned 12...

If you want, you can go to www.youtube.com/janeaquino to see some of his vids.  I'm going to try put a reel together for him. 
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Kuzon on August 21, 2008, 12:29:59 AM
Your son is gonna get the part, isn't he?

How old is he now?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: dajanerz on August 21, 2008, 12:35:22 AM
He just turned 12 in July.  He took one acting/modeling workshop but that's it.  His kung fu school's manager emailed us the link to the open call because ever since the beginning of Avatar, everyone thought he'd be the perfect Aang!  BUT - not sure if he can act...

Has anyone on here receive a call back yet?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 21, 2008, 12:37:35 AM

Aang -dejanerz's son
Katara - Bright.123
Sokka - (still need people)
Zuko - GotRice

z916 dont get discouraged...
send in your stuff still
maybe they will like you
the only best thing you can do is
to make them see you thats it
then hopefully something wonderful will happen
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: DAang on August 21, 2008, 01:01:58 AM
I heard casting directors do funny stuff and ask you to audition for other roles than you desire.
I'm surprised that not a lot of people are going for Sokka. Maybe a little hard to act out?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 21, 2008, 01:03:16 AM
Thanks for showing your video z916. You did a good job. I think if you keep working at it you'd definitely have a shot at aang. My suggestions would be to work on the flow a little better, you are doing a good job of showing emotion, you just have to fit it all together so it appears natural and in the context of the situation. Keep practicing and I think you will do great.

As a note for future video posters, It might be better to post them in the Aang thread. That way this auditions thread wont get too cluttered.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 21, 2008, 01:03:43 AM
As flattered as I am to be 'casted' as Katara, that parts all yours miss IToph! You own it!

And that boy is AWESOME.
He rocks, officially.
And the 'Staff 2' video was so airbendy... it was cool.

Hmm.
I'd be fine to be anyone!

And yeah, Sokka is a hard role.
I'm not sure if anyone can master such... Sokka-ness!
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 21, 2008, 01:04:01 AM
Im actually going for Sokka lol
but Zuko is my main right now
yes I believe people are kinda scared to be humorous
I just hope someone would be good for Sokka!!
and thx Itoph lol
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: dajanerz on August 21, 2008, 01:05:02 AM
wow... i should go wake him up and tell him he just got casted on this forum!  he doesn't even know i'm on this thing yet...
you guys are fun!

if he turns out to be a bad actor - maybe he can play secondary or do stunt double?

Is anyone planning on going to Vegas for the Open Call?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 21, 2008, 01:07:52 AM
I would but I dont have money lol...
and dont you have to be part of the competition...
I dont think its like open casting calls there

(Though there isnt much on the resume) but still YAY!! ;D But i still dont know how to send in my video T~T (anyone help plz) also Stupid (but also needed) question can i FOLD my resume to fit into the small envelope Or do i have to send it in the big flat yellow envlope??? (my dad isnt helping much  :-\ but as to be expected from him)
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: DAang on August 21, 2008, 01:12:43 AM
I sent it in a big fat yellow envelope.
I guess it may be cleaner if you do it that way.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 21, 2008, 01:18:18 AM
oh ya dejanerz I think you cant just send in actorsaccess for Aang
you have to follow the instructions...
so you have to include a video of him actually acting...
and the performances too

so it will be like

his name
his age
his location
birthdate
then his martial art experience and a brief demonstration(also include your youtube website too so theyll see)
then him actually acting the sides
then maybe a brief explanation as to why he would fit the role(maybe if you want)

so he actually still have to do the Aang video
from the actual website cause actorsaccess is i think a bit different
you have to include everything from this site...
consent..everything

you guys are talking about.  Guess i'll have to wait also.
Gotrice i'm with you on about the callback thing.  I just want
to know if i'm good enough to be called back.  Just a
self-esteem kind of thing i guess.  Also maybe a dream to
act.  Anyways, gnite all, i'll pray for all of you :)

BTW, do you think It was bad I didn't include my age? I realized after I sent it that it wasn't on my resume. oh well. If they like me they'll just call and ask my age. lol

(really off topic: I GOT MY SECOND PIERCING ON MY EAR!!!)

Back on topic: I think we have a lock-up for Aang everyone. Dajanerz, from one actor to another, tell your son that he is amazing, and if he gets the part to put in a good word for me. ;)

Well, they might forget about the age if your good enough and consider you. ;)  Then like you said might bring it up if they call you.


Oh, and z916, I watched one of your videos; you have a good singing voice. :)

Post by: dajanerz on August 21, 2008, 04:25:22 PM
iamkatara - age doesn't matter for any role.  it's the age "range" you can portray.  your video will let them know if you are good enough.  perris is 12 but is small for his age, so i put his age range at 11-13yrs old.  Did you snail mail your submission?  

read my new post in the "resumes" bulletin.  :)

*Thanks ellebeifong!  he's a busy lil guy...
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: iamkatara on August 21, 2008, 04:27:27 PM
I didn't do a video. Just a resume and headshot, but i got it in like the 5th day, so it might help.

dajanerz- yeah. my age range can be fron 15-21 with makeup on. i could do 13 but my height doesn't help(5'9'').
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued

hopefully. I hope the casting directors come onto this website to see how much we all really want this.

EDIT: Wow, he already contacted me and told me he wasn't legally allowed to look at the pictures I sent. That kinda sucks, but i wonder, if I sent the parent agreement along with it, would he be able to?

Post by: dajanerz on August 21, 2008, 05:00:40 PM
I received an email response from them about vegas.  It is not an open cast call.  They are having two representatives on-site passing out flyers to boys who seem right for the role and directing them to the website that shows them how to audition.  The way to be considered for the role (Aang) is to follow the instructions on the website: www.thelastairbendercasting.com.

No one needs to come to Vegas - just submit per their website!

I asked him if submitting via actors access was going to get anywhere in my response email.  We'll see what he says.  (He? She?  Don't know whos answering their emails.)  :'(

oh ya dejanerz I think you cant just send in actorsaccess for Aang
you have to follow the instructions...
so you have to include a video of him actually acting...
and the performances too

so it will be like

his name
his age
his location
birthdate
then his martial art experience and a brief demonstration(also include your youtube website too so theyll see)
then him actually acting the sides
then maybe a brief explanation as to why he would fit the role(maybe if you want)

so he actually still have to do the Aang video
from the actual website cause actorsaccess is i think a bit different
you have to include everything from this site...
consent..everything

http://www.thelastairbendercasting.com/index.php

Here's an email response from thelastairbendercasting.com regarding submitting through Actors Access for Aang role:

"Actors access IS a reputable site.  However, where the role of 'Aang' is
concerned, it is unnecessary since you are also sending an audition through
thelastairbendercasting.com. In any case, the important thing is that we
get to see Perris's audition."

Sept 15 shows deadline for Aang submissions.
There is no official date for the other roles that I can find...
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 21, 2008, 06:22:49 PM
My acting range is about 10-17ish, hopefully, with hair and make up.

And tell Perris he has got a whole forum rooting for him!

lol.

OH!!! i HAVE BIG NEWS!

I e-mailed thelastairbendercasting.net and a nice guy talked to me and I found out some stuff.

-auditions are still open
-don't send any pics to them without the parental consent thingy. he couldn't even look at mine T-T
-ALL characters are still open. They do have some people that they like, but they want to audition as many people as possible(within reason) to find the right person.
-princess yue is still open. ;D

and the big news

- DOUG AIBEL IS A CASTING DIRECTOR!!!


He did lots of work for it the past winter and he was on a hiatus for a while, but he is coming back this september. That's probably what he meant by wait until september. He wouldn't be back till then.

I guess that means we can be looking for more csating calls come this september for us on the east coast!!! ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Sanhlami on August 21, 2008, 07:29:42 PM
Great detective work IamKatara  ;D. You're a big help.

I can imagine Doug Abeil walking back into his office and checking his answering machine and there's like 20,000 messages for him.

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: iamkatara on August 21, 2008, 08:05:52 PM
that is definitely going to happen.

oh, and the guy said it's useless contacting Doug until September considering he'll be gone until then

no one ever listens to me
good job Iamkatara ^^
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Sanhlami on August 21, 2008, 09:01:17 PM
I give you props GotRice for being right.

So that means everyone has to send their stuff again!? Since I'm sure most people in here didn't send a consent form with their submissions.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 21, 2008, 09:07:05 PM
well if they didnt look at the pictures because of the consent
they wouldnt look at the videos too...
so I guess some you guys have to resend again...
or they would just look at your resume
and if its crap that would suck
my audition thing should arrive there today Im so nervous...

Its better to be over prepared than under prepared what can I say  ;)

hopefully. I hope the casting directors come onto this website to see how much we all really want this.

EDIT: Wow, he already contacted me and told me he wasn't legally allowed to look at the pictures I sent. That kinda sucks, but i wonder, if I sent the parent agreement along with it, would he be able to?

sorry for asking but who contacted you?...
was it suppose to be a callback?
Omg did you almost get a callback?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: iamkatara on August 21, 2008, 09:15:28 PM
no, not for that. only for the online submissions. I'm pretty sure.

I'm just waiting till spetember to send to Aibel. I can't deal with all the tension of the deadline. lol 

oh, and i sent an e-mal to the guy with it in it, so it might be different.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Alana1991 on August 21, 2008, 09:16:14 PM
WHOOT IAMKATARA!!!!! :D You deserve Yue.  ;D Does that mean they will be casting minor roles? I hope Suki is one of them...I'm guessing from katara sides Haru is in this movie, so I don't see why she wouldn't be.  ;D

*prays for open calls in East Coast*

lol. I actually printed up the consent form last night in case that website dissapears after the deadline. :P

I'm sorry about your pictures, Iamkatara...you sort of answered my question a few seconds ago about resending before I posted this.lol.


oh, and z916, very nice job!  ;D


Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 21, 2008, 09:31:50 PM
And also, if you were hoping for a lead role, if you don't get a callback in two to three weeks, don't expect one. (But we already knew this. So well prepared!)

And if Doug Aibel is doing minor characters, that's great!
I want to audition for Ty Lee or maybe even Suki, I guess.

Yay, so anxious!
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: iamkatara on August 21, 2008, 09:32:52 PM
He is doing major characters. I'm pretty sure that Gail is for the West Coast and Doug is for the east....... hopefully.

Bravo, you got guts for being the first person to post up their video. It was pretty good.

Thanks for posting, I just needed 1 person to post a video to be satisfied.

Are those your brothers and sisters reading the other lines?

You're korean aren't you...?


Calm down Kuzon, no one can be 100% perfect. I bet your expecting  him to be able to bend air now huh?
no they are my white friends, nicest people ever
no im chinese, i can airbend *blow wind*




z916, do you have martial arts experience?
AHAHAHAHAH....no....i spent all my life singing my guts out but never took the time to do martial arts, im soo mad, sorry i didnt see this post before
however i can imitate pretty well like my friends think i do karate or sumthing

For those who did not send in a consent form
along with a hardcopy resume/headshot needs
to resend with a consent form?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: z916 on August 21, 2008, 09:52:28 PM
yep i think so
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 21, 2008, 10:04:16 PM
I believe that is the case.
I can't promise though

You may need to either email them to specify, or if you want, I will, as SECRETARY, BWAHAHA.

I think IAMKATARA may know.
You may want to PM her.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: iamkatara on August 21, 2008, 10:10:20 PM
i think it's just for thelastairbending.com auditions considering actorsaccess.com said nothing about it. they'll probalby ask you to send something if they want you to audition.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: DAang on August 21, 2008, 10:13:58 PM
So it's only for Aang that you need a consent form.
But, iamkatara, didn't you get a call saying that you needed
a consent form?  You sent in a hardcopy right?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: iamkatara on August 21, 2008, 10:14:39 PM
i didn't get a call, but that's what i'm sure would happen.

yes, a hardcopy.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 21, 2008, 10:16:36 PM
but since someone called you..
that said they couldnt look at the pictures...without the consent
then you need a consent form then right?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 21, 2008, 10:17:44 PM
Correctomundo.

If you didn't send a consent form with your hardcopy, do not worry.
If they like you enough to want to call you back, they'll call and ask for a consent form.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: iamkatara on August 21, 2008, 10:18:11 PM
they didn't call me. it was an e-mail through thelastairbendercasting.net or w/e, and he said that he legally can't look at the pics b/c i'm a minor. I assumed that's what he meant.

EDIT: Thanks bright.123

If they want you to audition, they'll proabbly ask you to fax a consent form.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Bright.123 on August 21, 2008, 10:29:13 PM
You are very welcome.

And as of now I am glad I have a fax machine!
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: DAang on August 21, 2008, 10:32:00 PM
Oh I c now,
They should have mentioned that on Actor's Access
but I guess it might not matter since if they really want you
they'll just ask you to fax it or bring one to your audition.

Anyways, called back or not, it's great to know how the
audition process works now and that there's such a site as
actor's access.

other then that my stuff should have been in yesterday so I feel better :)

but, anything new
what I got from skimming the last 10 pages was that there was an open call for Aang in Vegas
z916 posted his video

No I don't think we need to do anything unless they call one of us back.
They have all our resumes, if they need a parental consent form, I'm pretty sure
they would ask for it if they really wanted one of us.

wow people... read what she said. she said she emailed lastairbender casting. She didnt get a call back yet. you dont need to resend. Im pretty sure she was talking about attaching pictures in her email and they couldnt legally look at them, but she didnt really say that clearly so I could be mistaken.  dont worry about it.

I'm still somewhat confused, I've been reading through the tons and tons of pages through this thread, so I need you all to clarify one thing, Is it still too late for me to send in a hard copy? (Being that I live in AUstralia and it would take a couple of days to get to America)

And

Is it still Ok for me to send a hard copy being that I've already sent an electronic Copy through actor acess?

Thankyou

Post by: Sanhlami on August 22, 2008, 01:27:32 AM
No it is not to late (or we haven't been informed of the deadline) so you can still send a hard copy. If you sent it electronically already then you don't need to send a hardcopy unless you just want to.  ;D

2008/08/16    14:43               SURREY, BC     Item accepted at the Post Office

it said it arrived at 90012, USA Im really scared...
I specifically put
Gail Levin
5555 melrose avenue
Hope 206 - Paramount Castings
Los Angeles, CA, 90038
I even have the proff of copy here...
but HOW THE HELL DID IT GO TO 90012, USA
Im really scared and confused...
if anyone also had an audition sent to 90012...
anyone please wtf is this...
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: al55 on August 22, 2008, 01:46:30 AM
maybe it could be like a main office and then they'll send it to 90038
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 22, 2008, 01:52:09 AM
well if you check google map
and type 90012 it points to a Dodger Stadium

Melrose is close to it but why would it be sent to a stadium?...
Im so scared right now
god how can a mailing company screw this up...
I didnt even put 90012 anywhere
why would they drop it there
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Crimsonpheonix on August 22, 2008, 02:06:30 AM
I think its because u put Hope 206 on your letter,  I think the mailman got confused and instead of sending it to 90038 he sent it to 90012(which is hope st's zip code{I checked on google maps} )  :'(

But Im pretty posotive the person who received your audition letter will send it to the right place!
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 22, 2008, 02:23:55 AM
I dont see any hope st near Dodger Stadium...
can you pls post the link...

but even if he did get confused with that...
I mean
5555 melrose avenue..
shouldnt it be atleast close there...
and Hope 206...I mean the only thing close
to the 5555 melrose avenue
is the bob hope building...
I have to send ti again....
and this time Ill put
the friggin building's name...
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Crimsonpheonix on August 22, 2008, 02:31:09 AM
Argh,link doesn't work, here type this on google maps:

Good luck with your next letter.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 22, 2008, 02:37:04 AM
ya i saw it....

but even though...
I mean...
Gail Levin
5555 melrose avenue
hope #206 - paramount castings
Los Angeles, CA, 90038

If he got confused with the address then they should have looked at the
Zip Code...vut instead they just ignore all the other things
then all people who put that in the enelope was sent in that address too because of the hope #206...
this is so retarded then....then the address in actosaccess then...
it made people type hope #206...
then it wouldve have sent there too....
this is so frustrating...i wanna friggin sue them... >:( >:( >:(
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Crimsonpheonix on August 22, 2008, 02:41:23 AM
I think if you wrote in big letters next to 90038 on the letter, "THIS IS THE ZIP CODE!!!!!!!" Maybe, just maybe those idiots at the post office(Wow, I've used that phrase thrice in one day) will see it and send it to the right place

EDIT: Oh, and I think also thhey mistook the address because you wrote:

5555 melrose avenue
hope #206 - paramount castings

rather than:

PARAMOUNT FEATURES CASTING
5555 MELROSE AVENUE, HOPE #206

which is the address on actorsaccess
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 22, 2008, 02:57:37 AM
well it is still the same...
its just rearranged....

I mean 5555 melrose avenue...
god im speechless right now...
i knew something wrong happened...
ughh but this of a retarded stupid mistake...
I mean it did say there
5555 melrose Avenue...what kind f idiot sends it to a street..
and the Zip Code was different too...
Im so screwed up right now...
I have to resend it again...tommorow...its gonna reach there tuesday...crap....
T.T I wanna beat that idiot who dropped my thing off...
god...

call the shipping company you used and ask. they could've just meant their station was at 90012 and they delivered from there to paramount.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 22, 2008, 03:35:26 AM
well it said Item successfully delivered...and it also stated its current loacation
so that actually really means it got delivered into that Zip Code, Address...
Ill try and talk to a Canada Post personnel tommorow...
but I dont think they do it internationally
I mean that they pass it to a US post office delivering system...
and a US post office actually delivers it....
and 90012 is either a stadium..or an apartment building...
I have to resend again...
its not like we know for sure the deadline was this week...
I just hope it isnt and it will still be taken a look at...
how stupid can people get seriously  >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

Gotrice i'm pretty sure that address is the station in which they drop it off.
From there they deliver it by mail truck or whatever.
You shouldn't really worry about it.
But you should still call to make sure I guess.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 22, 2008, 12:00:25 PM
but if it is like that...
then why would it say "item successfully delivered"
and Im trying to find whats the buildings name
for 90012....
if anyone can find that its a post office...
I would really be greatful
but so far Im finding...sushi restaurants....
a stadium...and that 206 S hope st...
thing....

Post by: Sanhlami on August 22, 2008, 12:29:11 PM
I guess you might just have to wait until someone else in this forum comes, to see if they did mail confirmation as well and ask them if they successfully ended at 90012 or if they ended at 90038. (I think Matt800 might have done mail conformation, not sure)
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 22, 2008, 12:42:14 PM
OMG WOOOT I LOVE YOU MATTTTTTTT!!!!
I called them and they actually sent it!!!!
I was right it did go to an american post office...
USPS!!!
they also said that the 90012 was the Zip Code for the people
who delivered....
OMG!! that almost killed me!!
lol
so I guess matt was right again!!!
and my thing will be looked at!!  ;D ;D ;D
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Sanhlami on August 22, 2008, 12:47:19 PM
you talked to Matt800  ???

I was saying that you should ask Matt.

If you did already then HURRAY for you, there was nothing to worry about after all.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 22, 2008, 12:50:27 PM
stupid Canada Post put
90012, USA as the final destination GRRR
I almost died yesterday lol...
good thing Matt was here!!
and gave advice to call them lol...
My thing arrived yesterday at 9:10 am yesterday ;D ;D
Im so happy..
yet so scared...waiting for callbacks now  ??? ???

Post by: DAang on August 22, 2008, 12:55:46 PM
Yayyyyy,
yeah i was thinking... the post office shouldn't make those type of mistakes.
Anyways, even if they didn't receive it, you could always send another to
the East Coast casting call.

what is the east coast casting call?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 22, 2008, 02:04:58 PM
DaAng:

what is the east coast casting call?

its just an assumption cause Doug Aibel is suppose to be a casting director...
but he comes back in September...
so were just assuming theres an east coast casting call...
it might not be true...hopefully it is
and hopefully they are gonna make a website for Zuko, Sokka, and Katara in that one...
kep your fingers crossed!! :) :)

Yeah Im not even sure if Im welcome there because Im somewhat newish and they are proably skeptical about letting a newbie in which is understandable I guess. Im pretty sure I havent missed much since the last time I was on. Oh and I hope none of you hate me because I havent been here for a while. A close family member of mine just died so that would kind of explain my absentness!

yeah im sorry too.  :'(

and GotRice,
do you think you might be able to talk to Jeff about letting me be the bending master person?  ;D
like if someone has a question about a bending form or anything in general about the art of bending they could come and ask me.  :)

i asked if i could be the Waterbending Master.
Jeff already said he liked the idea but i dont know if it will happen.

but now i think id like to be just the Bending Master in general. lol  :)

lol It's not only you, we have caller ID and even when it says unknown or unavaliable I'm like "Get the phone! Get it!" and whenever I check my email I get all nervous lol
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: iamkatara on August 22, 2008, 08:39:28 PM
i do the same thing. With the caller ID i always listen carefully, but if it's restricted or unknown i always jump up and get it, no matter where I am. lol

I'm away so i called my dad to make sure no one has called. lol
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: avatarluv13 on August 22, 2008, 08:56:03 PM
lol
same here!
im always like 'WHO IS IT?!' lol
my stuff should be there already.
 :)

i just want to get something straight.
if we dont get a response by the end of the month we probably wont hear from them, right?
cause thats what someone else here said a while back.  :)
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: iamkatara on August 22, 2008, 08:57:38 PM
probably not, but if you live on the east coast there is a 50/50 chance that there might be a casting call done by Aibel.................... hopefully.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: avatarluv13 on August 22, 2008, 09:00:16 PM
i dont think so.  :-\
if Aibel was going to be a casting director for this movie it wouldve said so on actors access.
dont you think it would.
well, they might of forgot to mention him.
but i highly doubt that.  :) lol
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: iamkatara on August 22, 2008, 09:02:11 PM
i talked to someone from thelastairbendercasting.com throuhg e-mails and he said that Aibel was the casting director. Levin is taking over for Aibel while he's away.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: avatarluv13 on August 22, 2008, 09:04:02 PM
so then when Aibel comes back Levin's leaving??
but we all sent our stuff to her!
would she like give it all to Aibel to look at?  ???  :-\
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: iamkatara on August 22, 2008, 09:04:54 PM
probably. Hopefully he'll make another casting call on the east coast. You sending your stuff was not in vain. don't worry.

i talked to someone from thelastairbendercasting.com throuhg e-mails and he said that Aibel was the casting director. Levin is taking over for Aibel while he's away.

So we could've waited and sent it to Aibel...
Ugh, that sucks...I'll send it to him too anyways and this time I don't have to spend $30 to do so.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: iamkatara on August 22, 2008, 09:06:41 PM
no kidding, although i really only spent like 2 because i did it just regular ground mail. I only paid the extra postage. ;D
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: NinjaBlank on August 22, 2008, 09:07:04 PM
Dang, this is a bit confusing...

So we should send it to Aibel AND Levin?

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: avatarluv13 on August 22, 2008, 09:11:39 PM
i dont know.
iamkatara, do we send our stuff to both?
cause if so i have to reprint everything and resend it... :(

OMG!
you know what would stink.?
if we had to send our stuff to all of the casting directors..  :o
lol
but we dont....
or do we.  :)
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 22, 2008, 10:32:37 PM
FRIENDS.. ROMANS... GAILBENDERS... I HAVE NEWS
Don't freak out, but I emailed Paramount and got a clarified response!! I'll just post the entire thing:
WHAT I SENT:
Hello!
   My name is Jeff C., and I'm sure you receive a ridiculous amounts of emails, so I appreciate the fact that you take the time to read mine!
  
    More of a request than a question, I'd like to ask if anyone from your organization has ever visited the website www.mnightfans.com , a fan website for M. Night Shyamalan.
   I joined the website at the end of April, as soon as I heard about your live-action movie. Through this website, many other young actors and myself have formed an "internet family," through which we've learned everything there is to know about auditioning for The Last Airbender, ever since the breakdown was released on actorsaccess.com back in June.
    My request for you is that you visit this website,
  http://www.mnightfans.com/forums/index.php?board=41.0,
because I believe some of the most amazing actors you could possibly recruit for the movie are on this website. The majority of us do not have agents, but all of us are very deserving to get a callback for the amazing movie. Through researching and sharing information in the forums, we have learned about Gail Levin and the casting crew, Doug Aibel (who we believe is casting on the East Coast, and has casted all of Shyamalan's other films), the Las Vegas "Aang" auditions, and much more. I am a "President" on the forums (Pirate_Jeff), and I believe that at least one of us is very, very likely to get a callback from your organization, and capable of acting in the movie.
    My request is that you view this website to learn about some of the amazing, talented actors who are planning to audition for The Last Airbender.

Thank you for taking time to read this!
 I have one last quick question for you.
I am 16, and I sent in a resume/headshot for the roles "Zuko" and "Sokka" to Gail Levin in Los Angeles. I did not, however, send my picture with a "parental consent form".
   Do I need to resend all of my information with parent consent for legal reasons?

Thank you so much for your time!
-Jeff C.

THEIR REPLY:
Thank you for your interest in this project.
 
Just to clarify, Doug Aibel is THE casting director on this project.  He is on a hiatus (break) over the Summer, so Gail Levin and her team are filling in until Doug returns some time in September.

Thank you for the information about the site.  I will make an effort to visit it if I can.

As for your submission, we do not need the parental consent forms until it comes to the point of a taped audition.

Have a good weekend.


:D :D :D :D HOORAY!! So just in case there was any confusion, there we have good info!!!
-Your loving "el presidente"  :-*
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: DAang on August 22, 2008, 10:35:59 PM
NICE!
Thanks Jeff!
Hopefully they will visit the website, but how will they know our real names?
or what we look like if we have not posted our pictures on this site?
 ???
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: afterpurplefive on August 22, 2008, 10:47:26 PM
Wow, I've missed a lot but I've come back online to two great news!

I sent in my stuff just yesterday (I'm a horrible procrastinator) and I checked USPS.Com and my package and it arrived at Paramount this morning and someone signed it R TUG (is this someone important? Or it could have been anyone?). Either way it arrived!

And now Jeff gives such awesome info! For a second, I panicked at Doug's name but knowing that Gail is doing it means she'll get the package.

I have a horribly noob question: What exactly is call back? Like....Is it the definite answer that yes, you are Katara or is it a call back that says, hey, you, come to LA and let's see you in person (along with the other people who they considered) ?

I am so nervous.

GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE! SERIOUSLY!
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Alana1991 on August 22, 2008, 10:48:11 PM

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 22, 2008, 10:57:19 PM
it's all good afterpurplefive, it's a good question:

If you get a callback, it means they want you to then send a video and more information to them. :)

And best wishes, waterbender7!!  :-\
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 22, 2008, 11:00:04 PM
wow I sent well not exactly the same thing but
requesting for them to take a look at the site lol...

hmm it might be a good Idea i someone
made a thread just for pictures so hopefully when they visit
they would take a look at that...
just an idea...
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: afterpurplefive on August 22, 2008, 11:04:53 PM
Thanks, Jeff.  :)

As for Waterbender7, I just learned what happened...Be strong and I definitely wish you the best.

It could be called PARAMOUNT CASTING CLICK HERE

Waterbender7, I'm really sorry for your loss.  :(

I saw the vineyard theatre and it looks so small...

I couldn't get in because it was closed though... :'(

I'm going to try tomorrow even though it says its closed on Saturdays and Sundays... :)

But I'm leaving tomorrow night to go to Maryland...

Here is a link to a pic I took of the Vineyard Theatre...

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 23, 2008, 12:02:06 AM
Hello! My Name is R G.

More of a request than a question, i would like to ask if anyone from your casting department  has visited the forums in www.mnightfans.com - a website for M. Night Shaymalan fans. I joined its forums at the beginning of February of this year, as soon as I heard about the live action movie. Through this website, many young kids, including myself, have devoted themselves in trying to find any info about this movie - including auditions. Since I am one of the longest and active user in those forums, I have tried to help new users about any info in this movie and also have had to gave advice. We've done everything in our power to try and find this auditions, through the CAA email scams, Doug Aibel, Gail Levin, and now the "Aang site", we've help each other, and somehow we've created a bond that we can call an "Internet Family." I have met alot of people during this past few months and have gone through ups and downs with them, and we couldnt have done it without each other. Now, even though i might not make it than some people, I can atleast say that some of those kids on those forums deserve a chance, If you just have the time to see those kids that worked so hard to try and find this auditions, just to be a part of this movie, you might find what you guys are looking for. So all Im saying is that,
if you find the time to look at the site, please, just please do so. I would just like to have those kids, and myself, to be taken a look at and have a chance at this movie, just an audition, even if its not main roles. Although not many are auditioning for Aang on those forums, Some of those kids resembles the other characters. I mean who can act the characters best, rather than the fans right? and some even looks alot like them, you might be suprised. So if anyone from your organization drops by the site, please feel free to look around, and please let it be known, it wil make alot of those kids happy.
Thank you for taking your time in reading this letter.

Thank you

this is what I put lol  ;D ;D

Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 23, 2008, 12:20:50 AM
haha we have come very far.

It's funny to think that none of us have agents, but by all of us contributing we found out just as much!  :D

I'm glad we all found this forum!!

So true. Now its like 14 pages per day and we have our own clan. I can't believe the casting is almost coming to an end  :'(. But we'll all still be here after  ;D. This forum is like a free agent  ;D

She does look a lot like Katara, but it's up to her! I think she should try, because "Words don't change anything. Action does!"  :D
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: z916 on August 23, 2008, 12:56:37 AM

I'm off to bed. Midnight here, and I have to be up at 7 tomorrow  ;)

See you guys later! Thanks for making that Picture-Board GotRice!

And tell her to audition, z916!!
She'd get lots of support from the Gailbenders! ;)

Good job guys for confirming that information. I'm really surpised at how helpful the email response team at paramount has been. I definitely would not have expected them to accept a request to look at our forum. Most businesses would not take the time to break their process, at the request of an individual. I guess we are kind of the hot spot for avatar fans though, which is something they are more than likely interested in checking out. I suppose we shall find out!

btw got rice you mispelled "personnel" in the title of the photo thread. Probably doesnt matter, but if we can fix it somehow we might as well.  Best to not take any chances and give a good first impression if they actually do check the forum.  ;D

it has to be her choice, not ours.

I'm wondering. If they check this forum, won't they get mad or something if they find out we've been passing sides to eachother?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued

maybe...

well you guys should request them to take a look at the forums....
so maybe they'll definitely look at this forums...
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: avatarluv13 on August 23, 2008, 01:27:09 PM
oh wow, i forgot about that.  :o
but i also bought a copy of the sides just for that reason. lol
like if were at an audition for them and they are all like 'where'd you get those sides?'
and were all like 'got 'em from a friend.'
i think they'd be mad. lol
so i just bought, in case.
you know.  :)
lol

There's nothing wrong with Sharing...technically at this point, if you bought it, it's yours and therefore can do what yu want with it. ;D :P

Unless that site was illegal. :o I  doubt that though.lol.

yeah.
i actually just got a message saying my action has been declined...  :(
so i guess i dont have them..
well not that i bought! lol  :D

that would suck if it was. O_O
lol
but like you said, i doubt that.  :)

Post by: Waterbender7 on August 23, 2008, 01:52:38 PM
Thanks everyone for their support, it really means a lot to me.

Anyways
Kuzon- That is actually not what I pictured the Vineyard theater to look like. It looks cool though!

z916- You better tell her to audition! She looks so much like Katara! But like avatarluv13 said,dont push her to audition if she doesnt want to.

And yeah telling the producers and what not that you got the sides from a friend, NOT the best idea ever! lol.

So Im just curious as if anyone found out if our audition stuff  is due the 2nd or 15th? Or are some people just waiting until Aibel gets back from his vacation or whatever.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: happyelectrons on August 23, 2008, 01:59:47 PM
I think we should start calling Aibel again. Since we wanted to wait in the first place till the end of August to start calling again. But what sux about it is that we are in school now, and by the time we get out his office is closed or nobody is there.

I just tried calling. No luck. If I remember correctly they are never there on weekends.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: iamkatara on August 23, 2008, 03:52:59 PM
Don't start calling till the weekend before september. he won't be there, and unless we talk to him ourselves, there's really no point in calling. We'll get more "wait until september" answers. lol
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: endurancekarmatiffany on August 23, 2008, 04:26:26 PM
If doug is taking over in september and callbacks for people auditioning are supposedly also wrapping up in september, doesn't that mean that doug's main role will be to help narrow down the number of prospective actors/actresses and eventually find the main cast from those that recieved callbacks? And not be taking more submissions that are requesting for an audition?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 23, 2008, 04:44:26 PM
endurance, that is most likely true. If you don't send in soon, your chances of getting a callback are minimum to none.

 :D And don't everybody start calling at once. I know we're excited, but we don't want to make Doug mad.

And I'm not sure everyone should send in emails to them. If EVERYONE sends in an email telling them to come here, it will make us look unorganized and unprofessional.  :D I'm excited, guys!! September is almost here!!

I think we should tell the forums BEFORE we call in, just so we know how many of us are calling in, and what questions we are asking.

We could have one collective "question list," and a designated person could call on behalf of all of us, and read off our questions to minimalize the number of people calling.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 23, 2008, 04:58:10 PM
lets just hope they are still looking for people when he comes back...
hopefully a site for the other characters... :-\
why is only aang grrr

Post by: NinjaBlank on August 23, 2008, 05:13:13 PM
Kuzon, you can only get into the VINEYARD THEATRE IF you have an appointment.

The most that guy can do is take your Resume and Headshot and pass it on or something.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: avatarluv13 on August 23, 2008, 05:35:17 PM
ok so i could make up a thread (unless someone already has) and people can contribute to it with questions for Aibel, then we can get someone to call on behalf of all of us.
just like Jeff said.  :)
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 23, 2008, 05:37:25 PM
guys Im like reading the threads in Imdb.com
and some people are saying they are having initial auditions...
callbacks arent happening yet....
Im really scared...

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 23, 2008, 05:58:02 PM
they've already done a lot of auditions. If you sent in, they should still be looking at those, and considering people to call. Their process doesnt seem to be organized in a step by step fashion.

After looking over everything,
It seems that the casting directors have A LOT
of submissions.  I wonder how hard it will be to choose the right people.
If they find a group as well put together as the Harry Potter series,
I bet this movie will be very successful.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: avatarluv13 on August 23, 2008, 07:14:08 PM
i think it will be even more successful then the Harry Potter movies because it's based on such an awesome show!! lol
no offense to anyone who really like H.P.!
but we all know it's true! lol  :D

Ergh this auditioning process is so frustrating and confusing because it's not solidified. It makes for a lot of confusion.

Gotrice Just to clarify, you mentioned other people going through initial auditions. does this mean that our audition material actually was a request for initial auditions, which are like a level before the callbacks? Sorry, i'm confused and I'm just trying to make sense out of things

remember the time when Doug Aibel said that castings has not started
(he said it like in  near ending of july lol)
and that wait till september....

Haha that just proved those...
"rumored to be attached" people lied lol...
i mean if Doug Aibel is the casting director and said castings has not started....
HAHA!!

it really did just start in July 30!!! lol
so all you guys ideas of having audition for "agents only" before were just shattered
thats good news ^^
that means those kids actually really lied lol

No he definitely said casting hasn't started yet. We called him and a couple of us spoke to him ourselves. He prolly meant the next round of casting because he knew that the person on the phone had it in mind to audition.

Matt - he definitely said casting hasnt started we called him before...well vamptastic and Happyelectron did lol...

NinjaBlack - he took a break somewhere in August thats why he wasnt answering lol...yes Gail levin is helping him but
                 i think shes just filling for him till hes back on his break...so it couldnt be that...becauseif there
                 where auditions before he would be the one doing it...he wasnt on break before

Alana - true...we may never know...theres always that M.night Article with thousands of kids...

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Waterbender7 on August 24, 2008, 11:58:36 AM
I guess you would have to schedule an appointment considering without one a lot of people would go in and start bambarding him with questions about it and they might get really annoyed and say that there will not be considering anyone for the open auditions which would be sad! And as vamptastic mentioned on page 99 about Sweeney Todd.... wait! (yes I've seen that movie way too many times lol!)
All good things
Come to those who can
Wait!!!!!!

Post by: Bright.123 on August 24, 2008, 07:52:29 PM
For more regular actors who aren't doing this specifically, it's black and white, not to mention it's cheaper and if you are doing some mass sending out, you'd want it to cost less.
But for this movie, I'm assuming most people sent it in color so they would know what we looked like more specifically.
But I'm sure it doesn't matter much!

Post by: Kuzon on August 24, 2008, 08:22:56 PM
I have some bad news though...

The number that we have been calling isn't Douglas Aibel's anymore! :'(

The extention number 220 now belongs to a guy named Henrey Russell Bergstein who does casting for the Vineyard theatre as well...   (I'm guessing that it's because Doug is working with Shyamalan right now)

The phone number automatically goes to the machine and then they check the messages...

I asked for contact info for Doug and he said that he can't give that out!

He also said that both Henrey and Doug were out of town and that he didn't know when they were coming back...

OFF TOPIC
I'm in Ocean City now...

I dug a hole in the sand that was so deep I couldn't see anything! (It took a long time to dig)

I'm on the hotel computer right now...

YOUR SIGNATURES ARE SOOO COOL!!!

In September, I'll happily call them!!  :D If you post anything you want to know on the "questions for doug" thing, I'll do the call. Also, perhaps Kuzon could find the real number.

Kuzon, my good friend, could you please find the REAL Doug number? (If at all possible...) Thanks, mate!  :D

I'm Back!!! ;D

I got to drive to the hotel (about 30 miles), I was sooooooooo nervous!!! (and yes, I drove at 2:00am)  8)

Okay, back on topic!

Some people were having like a meeting thingy and they said that it was closed, but when they went into the back the secretary guy let me right in! ;D (There was like a intercom thingy on the outside)

Ninjablank
Does the extention number 220 still go to Douglas Aibel or the casting department?
     1. The extention automatically goes to a voicemail
     2. The extention is for Henrey Russell Bergstein, who also casts
Is there any way to contact Douglas Aibel right now?
     -  I'm sorry but I'm not allowed to give that information out
Is there a way that I could talk to someone about casting?
     -  You have to set up an appointment
If I was to send in a resume to Douglas for casting in one of Shyamalan's movies, where would I send it to?
     -  Here

(These are not exact quotes but thats basically what happened)
(There were some other questions but I can't think of them right now)

Unfortunatly I'm not in NYC anymore BUT I did get a flyer and a card that I think has more contact info then what we have...

Oh, and has anyone else (who isn't auditioning for Aang) using/used sides for thier tape? I'm still debating if I should or not, but I feel I do better with the sides...but then there's the possibility of getting in trouble. It's a win or miss regardless for what I put on the tape, but this could be a big miss. (HELP!) ??? ??? ???

This may be a really annoying, far too general question, but if I were looking to audition for someone other then  Aang, I would send a resume, a headshot, and a video (of my doing what exactly, sides from the script or just a random monologue for the character im interested in?) to the address given by the actressactor website? I just wanna make sure I have all this right.

If you are interested in acting in the four main leads (A,K,S,Z) you put together a resume and a 8x10 headshot and send it to Gail Levin (the address on Actor's Access).
You can send a video, if you want, but they cannot look at it unless you include parental consent forms which can be found on the Aang site.

Thanks so much for your fast reply! So you don't think that a video is necessary and that just the resume and headshots would suffice?

You are very welcome!
And I think the resume and headshot probably would be all that you need, but if you feel it is lacking, make a video.
And if you're under eighteen, print out a consent form to send with it!
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: t-man23 on August 25, 2008, 11:20:54 PM
One last question, for a video would I want to do transcripts of the desired characters lines from the show, or would it be better to do an unrelated monologue?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 25, 2008, 11:46:03 PM
related lines from show would be better in my opinion. You are trying to show you can play a certain character, sooo as i see it you should probably act out lines from that character.

Also you can ignore the parental consent forms if you are not auditioning for Aang. They are NOT necessary and would probably just confuse the person judging your submission. One major concern would be that the time has more or less run out for Gail Levin submissions. They have more than likely already recieved all the submissions they wanted while taking over for Aibel, and if you sent in now I dont know how productive it would be. They may forward it to Aibel when he gets back from vacation in September, but it might just be easier to wait and send to Aibel.

If you are worried about the time issue, let us know and someone can email the paramount casting, and find out their advice for those who havent submitted.

Btw, should I drop off a copy at the vineyard theatre?

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 26, 2008, 08:49:56 AM
If you forgot to pay for the package they wont send it. I am guessing they will return it to sender, meaning it will end up back at your house. Or they'd just throw it away. I suggest calling the company you were planning on shipping with and asking them. If you do that, in the least you could probably get your package back, but I am pretty sure they would let you pay late and continue shipping it. It might cost extra though. I know they have things where they can bill the reciever, and you can change the postage options during mid-shipping, so I am pretty sure they have flexible billing options.

Hello!
Can someone clarify for me about the whole Aibel situation? Keeping up with this thread is tough so I'm a little confused ^^' he's in charge of the entire casting process right, or something like that? So is something supposed to happen when he gets back from vacation in September? Or are we just waiting until Sept. to see if anything happens, lol.

B/c I want to know if it makes a difference to who you send it to, Levin or Aibel.
Because Idk, I just sent out my stuff on Sunday and supposedly it reached the Gail Levin/Paramount casting address from AA today, and maybe that's pushing the time limit? So I was thinking, if it makes sense to wait until September and go to the Vineyard theater directly and resubmit my stuff.


i haven't sent a video
but i'm thinking of doing it.

nice video Bright.123  :) My tiddybit of advice would to be much much more dramatic, think of LOTR dramatic. the voice and disposition needs to be much more powerful if you're going to convince a repressed batch of Fire Nation prisoners to break out
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 26, 2008, 10:27:34 AM
he is the main casting director. Levin has been taking over while he is on vacation. I am not sure what their position is for submissions at this time. Maybe pirate jeff or someone else can email and ask.

Why is it whenever I go away this thread gets all active again
I feel unloved :(

But anyways I saw a little back about the driving age in VA
I guess it is separated from North and South because I live in NVA and you get your permit at 15 1/2 and license (did I spell that wrong) at 16 and 3 months

Also, so basically Doug Aibel is casting, but that number is not his anymore and we still need to WAIT *cough cough* till September
Is that all?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: iamkatara on August 26, 2008, 02:37:44 PM
BIG NEWS!!!
VERY BIG NEWS!!!!!

I called Doug Aibel. *hides in corner* *comes back out*

The Henry man picked up, and he's actually really nice.

He said casting had just begun, and you can send your headshot and resume in to him, and you don't need an agent or anything. Aibel is away, but you can send it in and he'll get it. He also said that if you sent something in you should hear(if they want you) around mid september. He was very nice.

He also said that all roles are still open, and if anyone said they got a role, it's just rumors. I also mentioned you guys and how we set up a little community to find out about casting information. ;D

That's all he said for now, but if someone, and i mean ONE PERSON, call in and ask for him to see the website and stuff, its probably a good idea. I vote Matt 800.  :)

*iz very very happy* ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Great find Iamkatara  ;D

I also found some news about secondary characters and extra. I asked through email and I got this answer

"Secondary roles and extras will be cast closer to the start of production (Spring 2009) and will most likely only include actors who reside locally in the Philadelphia area."

whoever lives in philadelphia is lucky!

OMG I LOVE YOU IAMKATARA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was gonna send my second auditioning tape to Gail Levin today but
something told me to wait!!!!
and this pops up!!!!! weeeeeeeee!!!

So it kinda says the people lied....
and there wasnt really any auditions before this...Im so happy!!!
and its mid september...so people can still send in stuff!!!
and you hear that guys secondary roles havent started auditions!!!
and will start probably like january..maybe!!!

anyways, Iamkatara where do you send it to?
can someone call?

I just wanna make sure whats the address....
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: iamkatara on August 26, 2008, 02:57:26 PM
Oh. with regards to Sanhlami's post. I asked about secondary characters and he said that if and when you send it in, just write a cover letter saying what you would like to try out for. He said that secondary characters are included.

I doubt secondary roles are just from Philly. if someone wants them, i'm sure they'd go outside there. Extras are proabbly/most definitely going to be taken from the Philly area though. They do that in most films.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued

can you send a video?
do you have to include a cover letter for Z,K,S,A?
do you have to send consent form? No right?

you know what I hate...lol
theres lots of this people calling my house advertising something...
but at first you think its the casting people cause you never
heard of them before...

He also said that all roles are still open, and if anyone said they got a role, it's just rumors. I also mentioned you guys and how we set up a little community to find out about casting information. ;D

*dances* And this time I live closer! And I can actually do a video this time! *stops dancing* but...where exactly do we send our info? The Vineyard or somewhere else ???

BIG NEWS!!!
VERY BIG NEWS!!!!!

I called Doug Aibel. *hides in corner* *comes back out*

The Henry man picked up, and he's actually really nice.

He said casting had just begun, and you can send your headshot and resume in to him, and you don't need an agent or anything. Aibel is away, but you can send it in and he'll get it. He also said that if you sent something in you should hear(if they want you) around mid september. He was very nice.

He also said that all roles are still open, and if anyone said they got a role, it's just rumors. I also mentioned you guys and how we set up a little community to find out about casting information. ;D

That's all he said for now, but if someone, and i mean ONE PERSON, call in and ask for him to see the website and stuff, its probably a good idea. I vote Matt 800.  :)

*iz very very happy* ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

ok so whats the address for sending it to Doug/ Henry?

this is from an email i got from a friend here in vegas:

"The Paramount representative told me that Aang is
 the ONLY role open to the public right now.  Other characters are being
 auditioned by applicants with agents."

Has anyone else confirmed this?  ???

The email also stated that they will look to local philly's as extras (or close to philly I'm sure...)  My friend wants to be an extra or secondary but does not have an agent.

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Pirate_Jeff on August 26, 2008, 05:47:03 PM
:) Actorsaccess if for Gail Levin, we're now finding out about the other Casting Director, Doug Aibel.

As far as we know, it's not too late to send to him.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: t-man23 on August 26, 2008, 05:48:52 PM

IAMKATARA IS AMAZING!  ;D ;D ;D

Seriously, great news!  :D So a Video for any character to vinyard theatre...send to Doug Aibel?

But  I need to know: what is the letter thing we need to include?  :-\


Not that iamKatara didn't do enough, she did awesome, but maybe one last call is needed for non-Aang people: Are there any specific sides needed to be used for our video?  Just so people who have sides won't get in trouble.

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 26, 2008, 07:01:27 PM
lol dont use sides. They are for auditions, you arent auditioning yet so dont use them. If you make a video and do an acting scene, do something from the show, or a monologue you like.

Douglas Aibel is Shyamalan's casting director, it's safe to send to him at the vineyard theater. To those of you who missed some of the information. Gail Levin of paramount took over for him while he was on vacation. She sent out the Actors Access breakdown in Los Angeles, which is why it is now too late to send to that. Send to Aibel now if you havent submitted yet, or would like to resubmit.

I think we should have someone call first, before we all start sending our resumes off.
Though if you check the Vineyard website, Doug Aibel's name is still on there under Board of Directors.

Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 26, 2008, 08:22:40 PM
Paramount said they were calling people. I am guessing they are just going to finish going through their submissions and finish calling those they like. If you dont hear back by september Im guessing they wont call. Then Aibel will deal with the submissions he gets. So you can always resubmit to him.

Johngalt- What do you mean? He works at the Vineyard Theatre, and his main office is there. Why would he not go back there?  


EDIT: KissKissk read my post above it answers that question

Ok, thanks Matt800 for clearing that up. Though since iamkatara says that he's taking resumes for his office now, I guess it won't hurt to send it to him too. I'm still wondering when exactly he wants it in. I'm deciding if I should do a video or not.

Hey guys, I've been keeping up with posts, but I missed the past two days (plus I haven't made a comment for about a week). And now there's this big news? Can someone explain?

Oh and do we need those forms and stuff that we sent to Gail so Doug can watch our videos?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 26, 2008, 08:40:11 PM
imkatara said they would get back to you by about mid september if you submitted to Doug at the vineyard theatre. idk if that means it would be about 3 weeks (meaning if you submitted now youd hear back by mid september if they liked you), or if that means they will get them done by mid septemeber despite when you submit. Either way I think it'd be best to submit by the start of september. That gives about a week to submit, and leaves them 2 weeks until mid september. I think someone is going to ask them about deadlines and their casting time layout soon so we should have more information on that. In my opinion though you should just get it in early and submit as soon as possible no matter what.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: endurancekarmatiffany on August 26, 2008, 08:43:36 PM
Iamkatara,
Thanks for calling Aibel and doing quite a bit of useful sleuthing

Hmm...so basically Doug is still making the final cuts for callbacks and we have to resend our materials to him even if we sent stuff to Gail? I wonder then, why did they have Gail step in when Doug still is still taking all submissions?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: thejohngalt on August 26, 2008, 08:43:43 PM
I'm srry I miss read... Kuzon said the # we had called before was for a man named Henry, not Doug's anymore (goes straight to messaging machine), resumes still get sent to Aibel through the Vineyard even though he isn't there, Kuzon couldn't get the number from the secretary, he believes the new number is b/c Aibel isn't working at the vineyard as much as Henry, he is working with Night...possibility that he told the secretary to foward any resumes just not give out his number....

I don't think you have to re-send it, just if you want to. I personally, don't think it would hurt. Hopefully, he'd get to see my face twice and I might be able to make a video this time.

someone said that he was going right into the casting, but wasn't heading back to the vineyard......

 ???
Did you get this information from the office? Because that's kinda where iamkatara called in the first place...
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 26, 2008, 08:49:09 PM
hmm well i think his office is at the theatre, so it should be fine to send to there either way. At worst they would forward them to him.

The reason you would resend to Doug is if you dont get a callback from your submission to Gail, and you would like to try again. Paramount said that if you dont hear back by the end of the month you wont hear from them--with respect to submissions to Gail.  So its up to you. If you dont hear back, you can always try again by sending to Doug. I dont think Doug is looking at the submissions sent to Gail, so basically if you dont get a call back by September, you will need to resubmit if you want another chance.

foreignbelle14,
ahhh ohkay i see. that makes sense
haha oh, and i like your thinking :)
IT deff wouldn't hurt to have them see your material twice
you can leave a doubly strong impression :D

oh and matt, thanks for clarifying that up.
so basically, they're not working together on the preliminary cuts.
you can submit everything to both of them and hopefully you'll get a callback from one of them?

Thats just stupidity, complete disorganization, and unreliable facts...
Why would they tell you to send to Gail, on a trusted website, but say that it wont go to Aibel.....You cover a person if you step in for them...giving them everything that has happened while they are gone...for Pete sakes, they are working for the same company "Paramount"
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: ForeignBelle14 on August 26, 2008, 08:55:00 PM
Do you think that if you live on the East Coast you should send it to Doug Aibel anyway whether you sent it to Paramount or not? Even though I was going to send it anyways, I think if you live closer to the Vineyard you should send it again.

John, the point is Gail set a time frame with an expected submission quota so they could completely review all the submissions before Doug returned. They wont give those submissions to Doug because Gail already reviewed them. She is not an assistant casting director, she took his place as head casting director while he was gone. That means what she worked is not going to be reviewed by Aibel, he will start with whatever submissions are sent to him once he gets back, not what Gail has already looked at. Also, Aibel doesnt work for Paramount Casting.

First of Doug Aibel is the casting Director NOT Gail Levin
its like this...

compare it to a substitute teacher in school.......
shes getting the homework from the people but still it will
be looked at by the real teacher after...

So basically since Gail levin is filling up for Doug Aibel till he gets back
Gail Levin is like a substitute teacher.....

In my opinion i think
she'll be only looking through the submissions.
choosing people who has a shot...
then sending it to Doug Aibel....
because remember Gail Levin is not the real casting director...its Doug Aibel
I mean the casting director should at least know who'll be casted

just because shes also a casting director it doesnt mean shes casting for the movie
shes just a fill up....a substitute...
Doug Aibel has to be the one who makes the final decision not her
and everything will be taken and be looked at by Doug Aibel...
and basically matt Doug Aibel is the HEAD DIRECTOR not her
after Doug comes back shes probably gone...
and how can he not be working for paramount movies?...
he has a theater...but he got hired as the casting director for the movie
so basically he is working for them..

The teacher is always the one who does the final report card not the substitute ;)

Mm, I see, cause there was the whole controversy about Gail Levin and Doug Aibel, etc. etc. It got pretty confusing, but thank you for clearing it up for me. I'll be sending out two resumes now =D. One to Gail and one to Doug ^_^.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: IToph on August 26, 2008, 10:12:17 PM
I agree with john and GotRice

it would be very disorganize if Gail Levin is casting people, but isnt being looked at by Doug Aibel.
Doug Aibel is the casting Director its his job to see everything.
as for him not coming back in Vineyard theatre, if they are casting in LA he might move there for a bit
but since the guy that IamKatara talked to said if you send something he'll see, he'll probably go there first.

but furthermore, I think gotRice is kinda right Matt, Gail Levin is just a fill up nothing more
she'll be gone when Doug Aibel comes back. Also, The casting director is really the one who
takes a look at everything and makes the final decision.
that substitute teacher theory kinda helped lol  :)

she is not a casting director for this movie shes just a fill up.

I walked around for like five minutes and decided to try one more time...

I knocked on the door and then I realized that the people weren't there anymore so I was about to walk away...

Then a voice said to come in!!!

got rice thats not actually how it works. Gail was hired as a substitute head casting director. She and paramount casting were to judge the submissions they got while Doug was gone. They would call those they thought were good enough, and give further details on auditioning. Doug would of course end up judging late casting decisions no matter what. but Gail is not like a substitute teacher. The work she did will not be redone by Aibel. It is likely that those who recieve calls from their submissions to Gail, would then be told to submit to Doug, but Gail was the head casting director while Doug was gone. Doug is also not apart of paramount casting. That is a company. The movie is involved with paramount, but that does not mean Doug is apart of the company. 

The point is, if you dont get a call by the end of August like Paramount Casting said, you will have to resubmit to Doug if you want a second chance. Your submission to paramount will not be regraded by Doug. They might forward some late submissions to him that Gail and Paramount dont have time to get to before doug gets back, but I wouldnt bet on it.

       ATTN: The Last Airbender Audition
       BLAH BLAH BLAH

something like that may be a good idea. Although if you just put Doug Aibel, I think it would be fine.

Stupid question...what's FTW stand for?  :P Either way, hellozombie as Toph would be great. :p I personally don't think that one person fits at all.
Katara's link is the only one I see possible. :-\


Anyways...I'm just gonna send my stuff to vinyard since it's closer.  :-\ Then try Levin maybe.


Also, does anyone think it's be bad to use an original monologue in my video? I was looking through old Drama stuff to see what could be put on my resume, and I came across some old monologues I wrote for the class. ???

ftw= for the win. its a saying to imply something is good and you are for it. Levin said they arent accepting anymore submissions, you'll have to send to Aibel if you want to be considered now. Use whatever acting scene you feel best portrays your skill at playing the character you want to audition for. Thats basically the purpose of an acting scene. as long as you accomplish that it doesnt matter what you do specifically. (Not the sides though..for non Aang submissions) ;D

its too late to send to gail levin, not Aibel. You can still send to him. If you get it to him within a week I'm sure you'd be fine. There is probably more time than that, but you can never be too safe.

you can resend to Doug Aibel if you choose to or not...
basically if you didnt get a callback through Gail Levin you can resend again
but this time to Doug Aibel...
Doug Aibel is like a second chance...
but Since the guy from vineyard said that callbacks would be happening in mid september
I advice you guys to send in now or the first few days of september...

anyone else really anxious to seeing if they gonna call you back or not
since the Gail Levin people said that callbacks should be happening
before september...theres like 4 more days(including today and not counting weekends)
god dammit people CALL ME!!!
lol  :)

Or at least that's what I thought I saw

If you sent it in sorta late (not late as in a few days ago late, late as in they needed at the beginning of last week and you sent it in...the beginning of last week) do think it'll take them longer to get to yours so if you get a callback you shouldn't expect it until a week from now or so?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: iamkatara on August 27, 2008, 03:36:00 PM
to be safe, i'd wait about a week more before giving up on Gail. Send in to Doug now anyway though.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 27, 2008, 03:37:12 PM
I dont know...

but Im thinking if you send something in and it reached there
at least last week...it should be about the right time...and it should be allright

it will give them at least a week to give callbacks.....
well callbacks are suppose to be happening right about now...
and they said "before september"
so it should be this week...ughh
6 more days till september...
and as an advice send your stuff again to Doug Aibel
this week or next week...
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: ForeignBelle14 on August 27, 2008, 03:46:25 PM
Yeah, I'm going to send it to Doug anyway.

Just about why you think you deserve the part (that you can portray the character,etc.). But, for the most part just telling them which part you want and if you're able to travel.

Not a "tan", but there are creams, but they take weeks to work, most only last for a little while, and the change isn't that noticeable.

I e-mailed the Paramount Gail Levin people and asked that since my audition package was received on Thursday, August 21 (confirmed by USPS), by their office would it still be viewed by the casting director. I was worried because I thought I had sent it in too late. I got an immediate response this morning and the person said that my package WILL be viewed. YAY!!! So if anyone was wondering about the same thing that I was I hope this helps :).

Post by: Matt800 on August 28, 2008, 02:32:11 AM
nice video gotrice. Definitely a good start, but you have a few things you could work on.
First-Maybe talk louder with more emotion.
second- try thinking about the scene, and the position aang is in, and try and emulate the feelings he would have. Some of what you did seemed like it could be improved.
third- keep an eye on your body position and face, try to make sure your body language matches the scene as well. A good way to work on that is to watch movies or tv and see what they do.

Nerves and being new to it will often make you do these things, but they can be easily fixed with practice. Just keep working on the scene and I think you'll keep improving.
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: GotRice on August 28, 2008, 02:41:53 AM
hehe thx matt lol....

actually the mic on my laptop is kinda busted i am trying to talk louder lol like real lots but stupid webcam mic...
my camera is broken  :'( i dont want it to the point hat Im like in normal level but in actual my expression is like im screaming lol
Im still trying to fix it..

well actually i thought they were in a ship in that scene lol and Aang since its been 100 years and has no clue on whats going on is just being curious? did I look at least curious? lol I mean hes not scared at all since he doesnt know anything lol so hes suppose to be having fun!
i was trying to make it curious and slightly scared lol

and the second scene he was sad  :'( did I look atleast sad?

hmm I dont know what should i do...what facial expression should i use matt? for each scene?
Title: Re: Auditions...Continued
Post by: Matt800 on August 28, 2008, 03:17:05 AM
yeah i think you had the right ideas for te most part, you just need to develop them.

My advice would be to watch some episodes of the show and study how aang acts in various situations. Try to think about why he acts the way he does, and how he views things. Obviously that will change as he evolves through the series, but you'd probably want to start with the beginning as thats what the sides seem to reference. Then take what you get from that and use it in your acting. That will probably help you more than anything else. Then just practice it until you feel like you're basically aang.

keep in mind you dont need to become an expert for your submission tape, but get as good as you can with the time you have, so you will have the best chance possible. And remember to be honest with your experience level, so they will be impressed with where you're at.

Post by: prince zuko on August 28, 2008, 07:41:29 AM
I thought the movie was ok. But you sounded basically bored/whatev throughout the entire situation. you need more range of emotion like matt800 said.

for ex. in the part where Aang suddenly finds out something bad happens in BahSingSay, how do you think he would react? Well first off you know that he is very protective of his friends and he would allow nobody to hurt them. So when Iroh says that his son died in the Great Seige, you should be like, caught off guard at what he just said and then jump to the conclusion that something bad happened to his friends whom he has there. So you need to react surprised as well as angry/protective. Aang always assumes the worst when it comes to his friends because he cares. At the end when Iroh says it happened many many years ago, thats when you relax and calm down.

1)make sure the transition between each emotion you give is clear.
2)take each line in the sides and think about how he would really say it.
3) and actually look at the person (who is off camera)
4)lol oh and talk lounder like matt said.

hope that helps!
