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!

Eclipse Casting Coming Up

If it’s one thing I get a lot of on this blog it’s searches for casting information. I get so many every day, that I feel somewhat responsible for y’all’s well-being in this regard.

First and foremost, I believe this is the place to go for info on casting: http://acting411.blogspot.com/2008/12/eclipse-auditions.html .

Here’s their most current entry:

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse Auditions

April 29, 2009

*** Update Regarding Director for Eclipse ***

David Slade had been officially hired to direct The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. He is represented by William Morris Agency, and his manager is Keith Redmon of Anonymous Content. Mr. Slade will be hiring a casting director of his choosing shortly, and auditions information will be posted as soon as it becomes available, as well as filming locations.

Eclipse will not be filmed back-to-back with New Moon, there will be two months between filming. New Moon is scheduled to wrap filming in May and Eclipse is scheduled to begin filming in August. There will also be a separate casting cycle for new Eclipse roles. The release date for Eclipse has been announced as Wednesday, June 30, 2010.

Do keep checking that link. I’m guessing a lot of you who are searching this way are new to the industry. I’d advise you to get agents. If you continue to go it alone be careful out there. The site I posted the link for has other links to follow. Click on Headshot and Resume, and scroll down for the link to Beginner’s Resume. Break a leg!
