Anyone who is interested in voice auditioning for Lord Qordis in "Star Wars: Jedi Remnant: Siege of Dantooine" can e-mail me at

kingofbladeslv@yahoo.com

When you e-mail me, I will reply back to you with a part of the script with Lord Qordis in it. Sorry for the misunderstanding. Then you can attatch the Voice Recording to the e-mail, and I will judge who gets the part.

Can I suggest posting a small snippet of dialogue for any potential actors to read?

You may find it easier to pick if you keep everything consistent, and it will give people an idea of what you're after.

Sorry, I edited my post. I forgot to put up a part of the script. But I'm not giving it out freely to the public. And please, do not release the part of the script to the public yourself....

I'm trying to get an actual voice for the part. Yes, you could say that I am looking for examples, but examples I can refer to for the actual movie. This is for real, and this is the real deal.

By the way, for the people who didn't know, when I give you the excerpt of the script, you will most definitely need a mic. for your computer.

Because you believe someone would care enough about your project to steal that unquestionably brilliant random dialogue snippet, film it before and make millions with it, and you will die alone and bankrupt on some street corner in Illinois?

Okay? I just don't want anyone stealing my IDEA. I couldn't give a care if someone decided to make money on it as long as they gave me credit. And are you being sarcastic when you say "brilliant randomness of snippets of my script"? 'Cause if you don't like my project that I'm working on, then no need to be mean about it!

MOD EDIT: Please do not double post, thank you.

I was being a bit sarcastic, not towards your project, but towards the "OMG someone might STEAL my idea" attitude.


First, you're making a little film, with friends. You're no big studio, You're no one important, your idea will most likely not revolutionaize filmmaking or - seeing it's actually based on material already invented by someone else - be original and there is no 100 million dollar budget at stake...

Next to that, posting an outtake of your dialogue to show a potential actor who might be interested in the part what he'll be doing will hardly contain your "whole idea" or any other useful information except for the actor mentioned.

Third, the fact that I combine points 1 and 2 and you still think there's a chance someone might even be interested in copying your idea is where my sarcasm goes to.
I've always found the "It's all a secret... I won't tell... someone might steal it..." attitude kinda funny from anyone who doesn't have an actual business or life at stacke if that would happen.


So, now you know where my sarcasm was aimed at. I do not "not like" your project, I know nothing about it. wink

Well, seeing as you're 26 or something like that, you would've been just a BIT more mature about it. I don't know how people from Switzerland act, but people from the U.S. ,sure as hell, do not. And I realize that I'm no one important. I'm just starting filmmaking. I know that I can't make millions on this project, but at least the creation of this movie might be a revelation to people who think that SW fanfilms are overrated.

People from switzerland have a sense of humour and irony and don't take things overly serious, maybe you people from the U.S. should have a look into that? smile

I didn't intend to make fun of you or your project. If I have done so, I hereby apologize to you.

But...

Not to forget everyone, this is a "helpful" forum AND about movie making not snappy come-backs about people from Switzerland or the U.S. razz

So everyone who wants to know more about the dialogue snippet private message kingofblades...

Right, anyone who is interested, PM me or e-mail me at kingofbladeslv@yahoo.com

Again, when you PM me or e-mail me, I will reply to you with an excerpt of the script. You'll need a computer microphone and use Voice Recorder while reading the excerpt, then reply back to me with the recording attatched. smile

WTF... U.S. should have a look into that?
Dude calm down at that shit. This forum is to help people out. To be honest I don't agree with you on what you said at all. If you wrote a script down you make of it what it is. I wouldn’t want my stuff copied even if it is crap. He asked for help not criticism. I can start this whole shit about the Swiss; but I'm way to big for that crap. This anti American crap is getting way to old. So stick to the script buddy. If you don't want to have a part in his movie then just don't respond. The second you start criticizing people the shit will hit the fan.

kingofbladeslv don't let shit like this get you down. In life you will be approached by many who will try to tell you your worthless in stuff. Now when you blame somebody’s country for there stupidity is just retarded. He's the one who messed up so watch your words dude. This is a international forum and we have enough wars as is. You script is your work. I agree with you trying to protect it.

We all here might not have millions of dollars or a professional studio and blah blah blah. I have seen movies here that clearly defines what movies are all about. I have seen million dollar budget movies that are so crapy, it's not even funny. I have seen way better movies here top some movies in the theater. Movies such as X3. Of course who can forget the brothers who made a light saber battle that can kick star wars battle seen out to the toilet. So solthar what you said about not being worth anything is just plain retarded. If anybody agrees with your crap that means they don't take their work seriously and have low self-esteem issues that need some working on.
To cap on all this crap. You are what you make yourself to be.

Hehe, surely you have read that I wasn't the one who started turning this into a country based argument, I was merely responding to

I don't know how people from Switzerland act, but people from the U.S., sure as hell, do not.
So you jump at the wrong guy dear Lior. wink


And surely, I can respond to whatever I wish to. If you don't like my opinion, that's fine with me. But posting on a public forum will get you a public response. Sometimes maybe not the one you wanted to hear. You'll get over it no doubt.

So solthar what you said about not being worth anything is just plain retarded.
Well, I'm glad it's not at all what I said then. smile

Well, I meant no offence against Switzerland... but I think the U.S. DOES suck, though. We are the most notorious of nations in the world...

Hey solthar what does this mean but "First, you're making a little film, with friends. You're no big studio, You're no one important, your idea will most likely not revolutionize filmmaking" Now i mean no disrespect to you or all in this forum but common are u serious? You expect to say some crap like that to a forum in a website full of indi filmmakers and not expect to get a response? I'm sure most people here take great pride in their work and don't feel like releasing a script out to the public. Even if i was to do a fan film, I wouldn’t want some dude to steal my idea and do the same project and who knows maybe will even complete it before I do and take all the credit. I'm not telling you, you can't speak your mind; but there is a difference between constructive criticism and being a real jack--- smile Now I really don’t want to ramble on this anymore. This is turning to be very Junior high for me. Bottom line is this forum is designed to help people not flame them. I see a person who needs help i try to help. I don’t look to flame no one for high.

1. He is no big studio
2. He is a 15 year old starting out in moviemaking, aka someone not particularly important in society
3. His idea will not revolutionize filmmaking, mostly because of 1 and 2

He was just stating facts, not insulting him.

It means exactly what Pooky has stated. Yeah, I'm serious. But obviously, I value that differently.

It doesn't mean "Hey man, what you do sucks and you're garbage OMG", it is again merely a reaction to the statement, that someone might steal an idea.

The believe someonee might want to steal your idea is, in my opinion, pretty ridicolous. A lot of little filmmakers suddenly jump to that, as if there were people out there just waiting to steal their idea, which appears ridicolous to me, as they're making (from a public point of view) a little film with no public importance except to themselves - which does in no way diminish the importance of your film to you!

See, a big company might have to be careful for people trying to steal their ideas, because if someone would, they could lose business, a lot of money, worst case even their jobs.
If you have an idea, and someone actually thinks "Oh, this is great, I might make that myself too", nothing happens. At least, that is the way I see it.
So going this "It's all a secret, there's people waiting around every corner to steal my idea" attutide makes one appear pretty big headed to me, as usually, people are only interested in stealing things of objective value.

You expect to say some crap like that to a forum in a website full of indi filmmakers and not expect to get a response?
Not at all, I'm always interested in discussing a matter. I'm always interested in a response. And we can discuss about this subject if you want, state arguments, agree, disagree then shake hands and go our ways. In fact, I rather enjoy a good argument about any topic really.

What I don't enjoy, is people going on a page rant using words like "crap" "s*h*i*t" all the time to make their point, when they could have as well just said something like "well, I disagree because XXX", which you decided to do the first.

You haven't stated one argument yet why my opinion is "crap" - that you disagree has been made clear, that you're very emotional about that subject has been made clear as well. Maybe you have some arguments to back up your point and can state them without the need of certain emotional words? I'm more then interested in hearing them, really.

but there is a difference between constructive criticism and being a real jack---
I agree wholeheartedly, but you should read your post again. If I have indeed acted like a jack---, then you most surely haven't done much better. So your point is kind of redundant, no? smile

Bottom line is this forum is designed to help people not flame them.
I actually tried to help with that comment, for the following reasons:

I assumed you want get good actors, because I assume you want your film to be as good as possible. Now, "good" actors also have a certain professionalism too them, and they look at things a certain way.
And many film professionals share my opinion on the "AH, SECRET" attitude, I know, because I've discussed the matter with a lot of them. So chances are, a "good" actor will most likely smile at the topic and move on, which is not what you want.

And as I've stated before... The second post asked for an outtake of the script, a little snippet of dialogue. Will that contain your WHOLE idea you're trying to defend? Seems very unlikely to me. So again, NOT posting a little random (random for the ones reading it, as they have no idea of the context) snippet of dialogue because you're afraid someone might steal your IDEA is pretty ridicolous, when you think about it. And I tried to point that out to help.


So, hope my motivation has become clearer now.

I'd just like to point out that not putting the script online (or emailing the full script to people) is most definatley going to put them off from auditioning.

Firstly, if you don't know how many lines the character has in the full script, how can you commit to doing a project? I don't want to audtition and for you to say "Yeah, you have the part! Here are your 1000 lines to read!", because I may not have time to do that, and wouldn't want to go back on an agreement to do something.

Secondly, I would have no idea how to act the lines out. Without reading the full script, I have no idea about the character, so I can't really portray him. I could audition with a deep, booming voice, only for the character to suit a hissing whisper like voice.

Third, I don't want to commit to a project that I have no idea about! I don't really want to give up my time and effort to a script that I don't like, or that I think isn't going to make a good movie. I'm not saying that your film will be bad, but at the moment, I have no idea how it's going to be, so that makes me stay away from auditioning.

Cheers,
Arktic.

I have no problem with that whatsoever, Arktic. I realize my mistakes. I know that I have ALOT of mistakes in this film. So the date that it comes out will probably be Summer 2007. I'm hoping that this site stays up 'till then.
