Berlin, Germany, June 19, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- World Cast Movie has launched an online platform for actors around the globe to submit auditions for its film, a comedy about 12 strangers who take shelter in a basement during a solar storm.
To be cast, an actor only needs talent – it is not relevant if they have an agent, or status in a traditional film industry hub like New York or LA. Even prison performers are being considered. Auditions are submitted online, and those cast will have a film studio come to them.
That is, they will receive a blue screen, lights, HD camera and microphone. The actor will set it up according to simple instructions, and be directed via online video conference. The recorded footage is sent back to headquarters in Berlin to be edited into the movie.
Auditions are open from July 1st- September 1st. Shooting sessions of 2-3 days take place from October through November, and the film will be cut for release in 2014.
