I'm very pleased to announce the Official Casting Call from Disney. Enter your audition submission here:

"Walt Disney Animation Studios is launching a global casting call for a key role for their upcoming feature, Moana, a comedy-adventure
set 2,000 years ago in Oceania about a spirited teenager who learns that the future of her people is in jeopardy. Along with a lovable pot belly pig and a legendary hero, Moana searches for a mythical island, traversing the open ocean and encountering mystical sea creatures and underworlds on an action-packed quest to save her world and make her ancestors proud.

Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker ("The Little Mermaid," "The Princess and the Frog," "Aladdin"), and produced by Osnat Shurer, this CG-animated adventure sets sail in late 2016.

Character breakdown:

MOANA – (female, 14-18) Smart, passionate, and funny. Brave, inquisitive, and confident. A teenager who yearns for something more. Strong singing voice a must."

Titiro Mai! Here is a simple guide for you:

Send a video of yourself framed close up, showing your head and shoulders with plenty of light on you.
Introduce yourself. Practice this several times before you film.
Tell us why you would make a great Moana.
Then tell us your email contact and your phone contacts. Check with mum and dad if you are under the age of 18 years.
Then widen the frame & film yourself in mid shot singing part of a song that you do well (no longer than one minute)
Upload the video to youtube or similar sharing site (make sure to keep it UNLISTED)

Then submit your audition details here:

Good Luck!
