‘Snowsnaps: The Band Contest’ aims to audition youngsters for TV series
It was soon after the release of the movie that producer Marie-Claude Beauchamp and its creators saw the success of the film helped kids to seek outdoor adventure.
“We realized that kids had a bit of a challenge to undertake the responsibility of being outside alone,” said Beauchamp about further developing the franchise with a new goal.
“We need to bring kids back outside.”
They began their focus on a spin-off in the form of a television series called Snowsnaps and the show’s creators are now looking for five young actors who can talk, sing and dance.
During the show’s conception stage, its creators realized that kids mostly memorized the music from the original movie.
The producers decided to compose their own music for the show which would require the young performers to sing.
Beauchamp mentioned in the interview that candidates shouldn’t worry about being perfect in both languages, they just need the capability of speaking English and French.
She insisted that candidates should record themselves singing an a capella rendition of a featured ‘Snowtime!‘ song and submit to the contest website:
- Je suis le vent
- Les héros
- Amour d’hiver
- The Heroes
- You’re My Sweater
Snowsnaps: The Band Contest is open to Canadian youngsters between the ages of 12 and 17 and closes July 31 at midnight.
