I made this topic so people can have all the audition information to look at. I will list it all here, and edit my post whenever there is an update. That way it will be easy to find Any comments or questions are welcome. Please feel free to use this thread as discussion of auditions or casting. Just remember to look at this first post for official updates.
POST LAST EDITED: December 22th 12:09PM PST UPDATE:Auditions have closed for the main four characters. Smaller roles/extras may still be available. (to submit for small roles/extra parts I believe you need to live within 50 miles of the filming location. I think Heery casting is in charge of those roles, but dont quote me on that....)ABOUT THE PROCESS
The casting is being done on a rolling basis-- no deadlines. They go until they find the right people. They have been auditioning people for several months, and are still searching. WHAT/WHERE TO SEND
Doug Aibel is the casting director. He is the person you need to send to in order to be considered. If you want a part in the movie send:
-A headshot 8x10 inches with your resume cut to 8x10 inches and stapled or printed to the back of the headshot (back to back)
-A cover letter in normal block business format. Many examples can be found online. Here is one website with help info: http://more.showfax.com/columns/avoice/ ... 00711.html
This material is everything that he requests. If you send additional material, use your common sense to know whether it will be helpful or detrimental. Small things like an extra headshot or dvd about yourself are probably fine--although he may not look at them if he doesnt have time.
The address to mail to is:
108 East 15th Street,
New York City, NY 10003Send as soon as possible to ensure the greatest chance of them recieving your material before choosing someone else. OTHER INFORMATION:
Gail Levin of Paramount filled in for Doug Aibel the month of August and out of several thousand submissions, auditioned only a couple hundred. Those auditions are now being reviewed by Doug Aibel.
There was an offical open casting call for Aang through Gail Levin and their website http://www.thelastairbendercasting.com
The deadline for that was Sept 15th and you were to submit a video following their instructions and some paperwork to be considered. We are now past the deadline for that, so they have disabled the website. I do not know what that means for the Lastairbendercasting email, (their email help, to answer people's questions), it may still work, or it may not.
Doug Aibel accepts submissions from outside the USA
They are really only looking for major characters or secondary characters. The minor characters will most likely be casted for out of locals near the film site. If you want to play a secondary character, for example: Ty Lee, you would submit for her as described above, or you could submit for a main character and note in your cover letter your interest to play Ty Lee.
Characters such as Toph will almost certainly not be casted for until the second movie.BUSINESS FORMALITIES
Your name and contact information should be on all your material you send in. It should also be neatly organized.
Follow the guidelines above for headshot/resume organization.
The cover letter should be separate in the envelope (not stapled to the headshot/resume), but you can paperclip it together.
It is also suggested that your name be on the front of your headshot somewhere. Usually there is a border with your name at the bottom.
Cover letter formalities are listed above
Resume examples can also be found online. As a brief overview, you want to list your:
: plays, (community or school) film, commercials, tv.
: classes, workshops, coaching sessions etc.
--martial arts experience
. you could also include gymnastics or dance experience.
: anything that might make you more suitable for the movie. Primarily acting talents or athletic skills.
Some examples are swimming, gymnastics skills, dance skills, rasing one eyebrow, rock climbing, basketball, other
s: make sure to have your height, weight or clothing sizes, eye color, hair color etc.
--contact information/about you
: have your name, phone number, probably your age, email and address arent
necessary but you could include them if you want. They usually suggest not to, as if your resume/photo gets thrown out
you dont want to have your address on it.This information was found through contacting Paramount Features Casting, Doug Aibel, audition post boards such as ActorsAccess.com, experienced actors, and casting directors.
