In my screenwriting class this week, my instructor explained that if you do not signify a race or ethnicity, your character will be assumed to be white. There will be no clarification, no one will ask you to explain, the director and casting agent will create a whites-only casting call for auditions.
This obviously isn’t news. We know that the default for Hollywood is white even though mathematically, according to the demographics of California and the entire world, this is laughably illogical.
I asked him how you signify that you want open casting in your script for any race or ethnicity because you want the best actor for the character.
He didn’t understand and started talking about words like “eurasian” in the descriptive lines following your character’s introduction.
I explained that I wasn’t asking about how to denote racial ambiguity (which is another favorite of Hollywood), rather an actual open casting call that wasn’t limited to white and white passing people.
He said he had never come across this.
Never, in his entire decade+ career, had he ever come across an open casting call.
So when people say shit like, “oh well maybe they just got the best actor for the role!”, they deserve to have their faces slammed into the nearest available surface.
Do you ever think about the fact that the US has created and legitimized a system of institutionalized inequality by funding schools through property taxes? That basically a child’s education is only as good as the value of the property in their neighborhood. Funny how education is so often viewed as an equalizing factor when there is nothing equal about it.
You guys, Stiles is not adopted and Sheriff is not a virgin.
Jennifer took the father of her last sacrifice, the Guardian sacrifice that is the sum of all the four other sacrifical categories.
STILES IS A VIRGIN, A WARRIOR, A HEALER, A PHILOSOPHER, AND THUS A GUARDIAN. FIVE FOLD KNOT is the symbol of FOUR ELEMENTS TIED INTO THE UNIVERSE (the middle knot).
12 SACRIFICES (3 TIMES 4 CATEGORIES) PLUS A LAST ONE of the Guardian MAKES THIRTEEN.
She needs Stiles for her complete darachy thing thats why she looked at Stiles like that and said all that to the Sheriff, that’s why she takes Sheriff as a bargain chip and to get her hands on Stiles. I think.
