Attention, die-hard Attack on Titan fans! The producers of the upcoming live-action Attack on Titan movie slated for release next year are looking to recruit suitable extras. Since there are unfortunately no titans available for casting in real life, they’ll have to make do with humans and a bit of CGI magic. So why not give it a shot? Just be sure to confirm your eligibility beforehand with the requirements listed on the official recruiting announcement (which is itself quite amusing).
Do you think you’ve got what it takes to transform into a convincing titan?
One Japanese netizen tweeted the following list of requirements for extras who are interested in auditioning for the live-action movie. Whoever came up with them must have a pretty good sense of humor!
▼ List of criteria for applicants (translation below)
You must be able to stand heavy makeup for up to six hours at most.
You must be OK being filmed in states of semi-nudity.
Given two weeks’ notice, you must be available for filming at any time between mid-May through mid-July.
We are especially interested in people with various types of peculiar characteristics, in terms of outward appearance, agility, etc.
Those of you who have seen the original TV show or read the manga will understood what we mean by the above.
These are tough hurdles to overcome, but please be patient and hang in there if you really wish to appear in the movie. Please double-check the criteria mentioned above before submitting your application.
In addition, after the initial photo screening, auditions will be held on February 18 and 19 at Toho Studios in Setagaya Ward, Tokyo.
For those of you who cannot make it to the studio on one of those two days between 10 AM – 5 PM, we will also be accepting video submissions.
Be sure to check out the recent Attack on Titan collaboration commercial with Subaru if you haven’t seen it already. This video hints at what the titans might look like in the upcoming movie (and it’s pretty sweet). Furthermore, the following making-of video of the commercial also shows the process of how real-life actors are seamlessly blended with computer imagery to create a visually stunning effect.
▼Maybe “titan makeovers” will become a new trend this year…
