PostSubject: Beware of online ‘Breaking Dawn’ casting scam   Tue Dec 08, 2009 6:19 pm




Fraudulent e-mails announcing casting calls
for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn,” have been flooding the inboxes
of fanpires across the country, according to The Casting Scoop.
“First
of all, I knew it wasn’t credible because ‘Breaking Dawn’ doesn’t go
into production for several months, so no casting director would have
been hired yet,” says casting director Lana Veenker, who handled
Northwest casting on the first "Twilight
film. “Also, the shoot location hasn’t even been announced! How would
anyone even know which city or country to be casting in?”
The emails
implore those who are interested in walk-on parts to apply immediately
with impending deadlines, promising that no experience is necessary and
pay ranges from $80-250, depending on the role.

In addition, Veenker discovered that bogus casting call advertisements (which take advantage of search engine keywords) have
been appearing on “Twilight” fan sites everywhere. She tracked down the
company responsible and learned that they had an “F” rating with the
Better Business Bureau.
“People
who take advantage of kids like this, who prey on their hopes and
dreams, truly raise my ire,” she said in a statement released to
Access. “I get thousands of letters and e-mails from ‘Twilight’ fans
who would do just about anything for a walk-on part in one of the
sequels. It scares me to think of what the low-lives out there could do
to hurt such easy targets.”

So how will fans know when Summit Entertainment is legitimately casting for “Breaking Dawn”?
According
to Veenker, when and if “Breaking Dawn” does start hiring extras, it
will be widely advertised in the media. There will be no need to pay to
register for a Web site in order to find out casting details, and any
company that is claiming it is currently casting extras for the film is
a sham.
