LOOKING FOR:

Male
Ages 8-14
Actor/Singer
Any Ethnicity

DETAILS:

-GrapeSeed English curriculum (http://www.grapeseed.com) is an English language curriculum that is sold to schools in Asia.

-You must record and upload your own audition videos for this casting!

-Please record the following (see attachments):

1.Sing the "Level 12 Part 1" song
*Level12_Part1-with vocals_NOV 27.mp3 - This track can be used to learn the song

2.Read the poem titled "The Beach"
*THE BEACH POEM_demo.mp3 - This is a recording from the GrapeSeed curriculum to demonstrate how fast the poem reading should be.
*GrapeSeed Audition Script_NOV 27 2012.doc - This document has the audition lines in BOLD.

3.Sing a short excerpt of a song of your choice (15-30 seconds).

Tips for the Songs:
 For the audition it is important that you are natural, excited, silly and have a fun and constant connection with the camera. Some dancing would be nice but not at the expense of your connection with the camera. The project is for early elementary age students who might not always understand what they're hearing/seeing so it's important that the actors sing the lines with clarity and a lot of emotion. They should sing loudly enough that they're voices don't sound timid - even if this song is at the low end of their vocal range. You should dress modestly and youthfully. Any kids on the older side of the age range should try to look as young as possible.

Tips for the Poem:
 The Beach poem read should be recorded close to the camera with frequent or constant eye contact with the camera. Your read should be slow, articulate and clearly enunciated. The more excitement and silliness the better. I've attached an audio demo of the poem. The song auditions should be recorded far enough away from the camera that we can see your body language (mid-torso and up)


IF YOU ARE CHOSEN FOR THE PART:

Audio recording will take place at a local studio, and you will be flown to Japan (with a chaperon/parent) to shoot the video.
YOU MUST BE AVAILABLE FOR INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL ON THE DATES LISTED BELOW - PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT UNLESS YOU ARE AVAILABLE.

The studio pays 50% of the contracted daily fee for travel days, the fitting day and any days off during the week but not for weekend non-production days. Actors are always paid a full day but they'll always work less than a full day to stagger the cast. For each actor and 1 chaperon/parent the studio pays for travel, accommodation and meals. All meals will be provided either at the studio or at the hotel/apartments on working days. They offer a 5,000 yen or $60.00 US per diem for any non-working days.
