RPG Casting

    I've uploaed a video audition I made today to my CCP profile, it's for the new feature "Real Playing Game" from

    MGN Filmes. It's an online casting, if you find a character that suits you, subimt your own at:-

    www.rpgcasting.com

    If you get selected "for the role" by the producers then it's full rates (so I am informed) and filmed in Portugal.

    You can only apply for one role so pick wisely.

    Anyway, could I have a critique? There've been many that have made a polished production out of it, I have gone for the old "1 shot" take, so I am hoping it shows I haven't chosen the best of "each and every line".

    Anyway let me know what you think

    Cheers

    It's good, Kenny.

    On line auditions are getting more and more pewvalent. Let's hope that this one is what they are looking for, buddy.

    That should be 'prevalent'.

    Big typo!

    Interesting concept 'Online Casting' and surely the way for 'pre selection' in the future. Though not replacing the 'real thing'.

    Kenny, you did notice that there is a 'final' casting session in Portugal after which the actors will be selected?

    All the best with your contribution in any case. Good luck.

    Yes I did, the final casting's expenses are covered (I am also lead to believe), it's the finance for having auditions in several countries they don't have in place.

    I guess it's better than wasting your budget?

    Was fun to do all the same

    Thanks guys,

    It must take a couple of days to process the uploads as it still isn't showing onsite yet.

    Although, for those that are interested in doing their own, pay and stuff isn't shown on the site, their is a contact page, so any questions you have, just do as I did and contact them, by phone is my best advice, Portugal is GMT time line, so same office hours, and at least you'll get an instant response.

    Hey Kenny.

    Isn't it so wierd hearing peoples voices after seeing photos?

    Your voice is great in that scene, really strong.

    You look great, like 007 type prisoner.

    Well done Kenny, hope you get something from it.

    Scottish? Cheeky Oink! I'm "Yorkshire born, Yorkshire bread, thick in the arm" and that's enough of that lol!

    I think my Scarborian accent crept in in places, but hey, I'm proud to be a Yorkie!

    Thanks Toni, but do try again, they've been uploading a lot of videos today, so it may be due to heavy traffice. I have an amazing anti-virus programme, and can honestly assure you, I've had no reports of adverse behavoir from the site itself.

    Videos of Alice and Kenny are now up and running, I have left comments on them both. I hope that they make sense and I wish you both good luck.

    I was of course joking about me having a crack so no more e-mails telling me I'm 20 years too old, I know, Already!

    The only bad comment I will make regarding this type of casting, is that video submissions shouldn't be aired to vote on till all submissions are in. That way your own unique take on the scene cannot be copied or utilized in another way!

    There's one guy, who's obviously copied both mine and Pessary's interpritation, which is bloody annoying GDK. He's very very good, and claims it's purely innocent, but then he also claims he played Lampur Fay in Star Wars Episode 3.

    All creditted roles are listed on www.starwars.com, it's a full mandate of cast and crew, there's no character or even a mention of his name, though I did notice that the Extras Casting were arranged via Maureen Fay. So I am guessing he's an extra, no problem with that, but why the bull?

    I digress, and no it's not sour grapes, just pure annoyance at read a bunch of kiss-ass reverence rather than a critique of the scene!

    Anyway, that's the only problem with it lol!

    Hehe, Drew mate, the onus is on you, I was aloud to have a little fun! It's your performance in it that's being judged. It could have been worse! I could have done it as Speedy Gonzales like I was going to!

    Sp for Drew, Alice and Myself, pls pls go and vote for us!

    Cheers CCP
