A FANGirl's Forkstress of Solitude

And I’m back!

So, I’m back and ready to discuss Bill Condon directing Breaking Dawn. I never saw Dreamgirls, but it obviously did very well. Who could forget Jennifer Hudson jumping from American Idol to the big screen and winning a Golden Globe and an Oscar her first time out? Only 15 people, including Hudson, have won Oscars for their debut films BTW. While Hudson is undoubtedly an amazing performer, it speaks highly for Condon’s direction that an actor with so little experience could be directed to an award-worthy performance.

The only other film by Condon that I can comment on is Kinsey. I thought it was well done. Most notable here is the portrayal of pain and discomfort that can be caused by sexual relationships that are outside the norm. More important is the message that just because the relationship may be outside the norm doesn’t mean it’s necessarily wrong. The skill with which Condon handled this could come in handy with Breaking Dawn. Now if only he can put some of his writing experience (Dreamgirls, Kinsey, Chicago) to use and “improvise” during filming.

Breaking Dawn Auditions

Have you been following Acting411? If you have you know some pretty interesting info by now.

Summit Entertainment has acquired the rights from Stephenie Meyer to film and distribute Breaking Dawn, the fourth novel in her series. Breaking Dawn is in the early pre-production stages. There will likely be quite a bit of tweaking to the novel due to the explicit sex and birth scenes to avoid an R rating.

Somebody didn’t catch that the explicit part was all in their heads! LOL!

Now for the really good stuff! Check out my Auditions page and scroll down to the 05Aug09 entry.

The Latest on Eclipse and Breaking Dawn Casting

There have been updates. I am reminding you to check my Auditions page. Many of you are finding much older posts, begging for info, and missing the Auditions page completely. I’ve made some arrows pointing at it. I hope that helps.

It seems that in my absence the Main Principal Actor Casting Director was posted and taken down because people were looking up phone numbers and calling the office when they were told NO PHONE CALLS. I’ll post whatever info I find here, but it will only be up as long as I’m allowed to have it up. Please follow the rules Acting411 sets. As I said on my Auditions page, it would be a shame if some really great talent didn’t get a chance to audition because they couldn’t find the info. We want the best movie possible. Please follow the rules.

Auditions Page

I’ve started an Auditions page in hopes that when people search for info on how to audition for the movies based on Stephenie Meyer’s Eclipse and Breaking Dawn they easily find what they are looking for. Ever since I first posted the links to Acting411 my searches have looked something like this every day.

Eclipse & Breaking Dawn Auditions: Final Post?

Maybe this will be my final post on Twilight Saga auditions. We shall see. I continue to get questions on how to go about auditioning. I would like to reiterate that I have nothing to do with the film industry other than being an avid movie fan, and have nothing to do with Twilight casting other than being a humble blogger of all things Twilight. As of this moment I have no ‘in’ with Stephenie Meyer, Summit Entertainment, Chris Weitz, David Slade, gaffers, best boys, kraft food service, or anyone else in the know. It would be nice to have some connection in the future though. 🙂

That being said, I’ve had so many questions that I have done some research. Allow me to impart upon you my wisdom.

Check the following links regularly:

1. Eclipse Auditions

2. Breaking Dawn Auditions

According to this press release Acting 411 is the place to go for casting and audition info. So, remember, it’s very important to keep checking those links above. Bookmark this page if you need to, to remember. Certainly you may link to this page directly on your blog.

If you look at other movies listed on Acting 411, you will see that some, such as Remember Me (starring Robert Pattinson) have a PRINCIPLE ACTOR CASTING area and a EXTRAS CASTING area. These are the areas you want to keep watching if you are interested in auditioning for Eclipse and Breaking Dawn. Today both areas say TBA for both movies. Before too long they will be filled in and you will know what to do.

BTW, careful readers noticed they are still casting the female lead for Remember Me. Go get him, girls! Don’t forget who sent you on the audition!

EDIT 17Jun09: This thread is closed. Please see my Auditions page.

Eclipse Part II

It’s Next Time, and as promised we’ll be discussing, “Why did Bella choose Death with Edward over Life with Jacob, exactly?” Death is not a natural thing for a human to choose, so why did she choose it? As Jordan pointed out in the earlier post, Bella would not see it this way. I agree, Bella would not consider life without Edward much of a life at all. For the purposes of this topic, I’m take the literal meanings or Life and Death. Edward does represent Death for Bella as choosing him would mean her heart would stop. Choosing Jacob means her heart continues to beat.

First, we have to remember this is not just fiction, but fantasy fiction, so what holds true in real life doesn’t necessarily apply. This being fantasy also means that we can attribute an awful lot to, “It’s magic.” What Jacob said about him being better for Bella than Edward is might be true…if this were real life. Edward is a drug to her, as Jacob suggests (and drugs are bad, mmmkay?). It is an obsessive love, and therefore not entirely healthy. But that’s only if you don’t look at it from a magical perspective (which you should only do with works of fiction, kids. I’m in no way condoning putting on blinders in real life). When you look at Bella and Edward from a magical, Meant To Be, perspective it all become a little clearer as to why they had to be together.
