If you’re a good singer and a fan of director Mamoru Hosoda (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time), then there’s an opportunity you might want to check out. Hosoda is holding open auditions for singers to use in his upcoming movie Belle.
This will be used in a segment of the movie that literally has people from all around the globe singing. And that’s exactly why they’re holding an open casting call — so they can get people from all over the globe to sing in this part. People interested in applying should check out this page (it’s in Japanese) and upload their voices singing along with the melody given. The movie will hit theaters this summer, so good luck, everyone!
