ok so i know he isn’t an actor but like vinnie hacker, like he has the sweetest personality and the looks too
i hope the actors are actually fans of the books and understand the characters motives, feelings and stuff well and they didn’t just get like another gig ya know? I’m not saying they’ll be bad I’m just saying i don’t want the actors that were cast to be there because they just auditioned for another job their agent recommended and that they…[Read more]
I totally agree! The actors should know the characters
I think they should be actual fans like people in this website. I also think that we should all get to have chance for a role since we all like SGE but have never been in a movie
hey everyone, so January is only 3 months away which means that THE ARE MEANT TO START FILMING SOOOOOON OMG. And the possibility of open online casting is becoming slimmer so idk if people have already done this but i was thinking someone on behalf of us could email Paul Feig asking for open online casting. something like this
Dear Paul Feig (or…[Read more]
i’ll probably take out the maybys to seem more convincing lol.
Closer to four months, actually. I doubt anyone here will have Paul Feig’s email, as he doesn’t just give it out to nobodies on the Internet.
If anybody did find it and you decided to send it to him I wanted to say, I’m nit trying to be rude it was an amazing letter, but instead of saying ‘short video of us reading a few lines’ you could say a “demo reel’ as it sounds more professional and is essentially the same thing.
Hahah Ik everything is coming together! The whole site is one their toes and I can barely wait cause we’ll this could only be like the biggest thing ever💅 I rly how they decide to do open casting!!! Crossed fingers!! ❤️💖❤️💖
hmmm, i think you can find his business email online, but i’m sure he knows how sad everyone would be if there wasn’t open casting. you could also email the casting director, but i wouldn’t want to bother her, since she probably get’s like 500 emails a day about it. 🙂
Brilliant outline!! I think it’s a fantastic idea. If anyone gets his email please let me know! 💛
I know this has been said a million times and its getting annoying but I want to type it again so the notice. Please please please have open online casting and allow us to send in self-tape auditions. This will enable international people to easily audition and will also help the casting directors to find the perfect actor for the role since they…[Read more]
wait should i tag jun or is that getting on the annoying side
I think it should really be up to Soman since he’s the author
we can send 60 second videos and write our name and age at the bottom. if a casting director is interested they can look at headshots and resume. a select few can then go to in person callbacks. and they should give us a script (side) to memorize for the video
merins_celestium made a post summarising there live with Soman and it’s said that Paul Feig has already started the casting process in the UK
^^ I’d like to add for anyone worried that this doesn’t mean that open casting is a solid no, it just means they’re likely looking into professional casting first, and if they find what they need this way, they’ll probably stick with it. However, we are not in Paul’s mind. We don’t know whether he’s planning professional’s to play certain roles,…[Read more]
For all we know they could be looking for the teachers first! And yeah, no one spam Soman because he mentioned that he’s not involved in the process. I think his exact words were that he just wants to sit back and watch the process unfold. So, I don’t think he knows many details, and even if he did I don’t think he’d share it.
yeah, they’re first going to look at professional casting. they’re going to get a good idea at what type of actors they want. They’ll start open casting later on
ok im so forgetful. which book was Tagatha’s first kiss?
Technically it was the first book because Agatha kissed Sophie. But she kissed Tedros for the first time in book two.
I just realised that in Australia we probably won’t have international flights until maybe mid-next year and I really want to be in the movie or at least crash the set lol imma steal a private jet
we shall steal a large jet and fly all the Aussie SGE fans to the UK
It’s really interesting to be that after an open online casting, an envelope containing a plane ticket for travel to the UK and a form of registration and… Sent to people who were selected in an open online casting.
@jun I was wondering if you knew how long it would take to film the movie? I’m guessing about 5 months but I’m not sure. Thanks have an awesome day
But you then will have to edit it and give it special effects because well, there is magic in it.
Well, yes, but to get the raw footage, it normally takes about two months. If there is open casting, it might take longer, because there might be more inexperienced actors in the movie.
They also have to learn the lines and spots to go to so perhaps 3 months + editing time
Hi all, we’ll make sure you keep you updated with shooting times/release dates once we have the info — for now, what we know is that they are planning on starting production January 2021, though this is obviously contingent on the current state of the global pandemic!
AHHHH I’m so excited. I know you guys are being bombarded with casting comments and are getting annoyed but can i just suggest sending in self-tape auditions for people that don’t live near the UK or America?? ok yeah bye. I’m excited. this is gonna be the best
I think they should have self-tape auditions in general because of covid and as the process goes on more in person auditions.
Agreed! It is also probably much more efficient during the pandemic!
here’s a thought,
so definitely open casting (maybe send in videos) but I was thinking. so basically everyone that wants to be in the movie will send in a video auditioning for whoever. so let’s say 1000 people audition for Agatha (i don’t know how many would but an example). the casting directors will narrow it down to say, 100 people. then…[Read more]
I totally agree but some might not have good quality for the video
This is a really good idea, the only problem is that there might be a really good actor or actress who just can’t make a good quality video, like maybe they don’t have a good camera, or good lighting, or maybe their rooms are just very echoey.
That is an amazing idea is gives a chance to everyone who loves the series to audition for the character they love. And i also agree with the part where we get to vote for the like top 10 because then we would all know that it was voted on who portrayed the character the best not only because of the look.
I dont think there should be votes it think the casting director should watch the videos and narrow it down to 10 on their own. those who made it to the final 10 will get in person callbacks
The I think they should base it on their acting skills, age and looks. First priority is acting and then age since if you have tan skin and you wanna be Agatha then makeup will do the trick.
in order to even have a chance to audition you have to fit whatever age and height criteria they set that’s just how casting usually works
