Since it’s August, I thought I would get a little back to school theme going. Is there a reason anyone shouldn’t go to college? I mean, it’s one of the great perks in life. I don’t mean academically, sure that’s a nice benefit from college but i was talking more about the whole social aspect. You can pretty much get away with anything in college because you’re enrolled in school and thus you must be going to classes or studying all the time. That is the myth, the fact is, you’re sleeping into the late hours of the morning, struggling to get to your 11:30am physics class and all you can think about is “drinking with Lincoln” (penny beer night) tonight somewhere down the street at a local bar, full of hot, young, drunk co-eds. You are also struggling to decide if your going to French class in the afternoon because if you don’t you wont see the hot chick who sits right beside you who always wears the beret to class.
First off you do not need ANY experience and you don’t need an agent. In fact you’re encouraged to apply if you don’t. You just need to apply and be yourself. Well you probably need to be entertaining and somewhat unique but you don’t need any acting experience and you don’t need an agent. I know, so unbelievable I had to say it twice in the first paragraph.
Who knows, if you’re really good maybe you’ll become a Hollywood Movie Star and you can give Atomic Gator all the credit for jump starting your career! We can talk about my finder’s fee and agent cut later 🙂
Todd Phillips the director of the Hangover, Old School, Starsky & Hutch and Road Trip among others is looking for some fresh faces for his new film. He wants you and if you think you have what it takes head over to ProjectXOpencall The only requirements are you must be 18 and you must me a legal citizen. Another cool aspect of the open casting call is it’s all online. You don’t have to fly to Hollywood to apply or stand in any lines or smooze any bullshit agent. You just go over to the link at ProjectXOpencall and fill out an application and submit your video. Pretty damn cool if you ask me, did you ask me?
Project X, which isn’t the working title only what the movie project is referred as right now; will be a sort of party movie shot from a first person perspective, putting the movie goer into the action. Todd Phillips thought instead of regurgitating the same actors for this movie that he would try to find some ‘real’ people for his next comedy. Joel Silver is also on board so this project will be an easy green-light with the backing of Silver and Warner Bros. [tweetmeme source=”richramirez1” only_single=false]
Can’t talk about Todd Phillips without including some funny movie clips could we?
Hope you enjoyed Atomic Gator now go get in the movies!
