UK Company Castalides Pictures gives the opportunity to millions of aspiring vampires to play one with the launch of very first cross media global vampire casting campaign: THE VAMPIRE WEDDING CASTING COMPETITION by using Facebook, Twitter YouTube, iPhone and Android APPs to cast them.

In the wake of the great success of Twilight and other vampire movies, London based film production company Castalides Pictures has turned the dream of millions of young aspiring Draculas, Nosferatus and Bellas from all over the world into reality by given them the chance to play a vampire.

In order to take part in the three competitions, aspiring vampires would need to let their imagination go wild and post their best vampire impressions on the Vampire Wedding Facebook fan page

The winners will:

- Become the vampire of the week on the Vampire Wedding website as well as on the Facebook fanpage where a banner with their picture will be published

- Become immortal by having their very own character drawn as a vampire in the artwork of the Vampire Wedding comic book

- Play a Vampire in Vampire Wedding film: winner will have the opportunity to play a vampire on the film set.

The casting campaign was presented at the London Film & Comic Con from the 8 to July 10 by Gina Varela, The Devil's Rock's actress, and attracted a great deal of interest from both LFCC and horror film audiences and is creating a big buzz on the net.

In less than few weeks, the company’s Facebook fan page received hundreds of pictures from aspiring and professional actors and aspiring vampires from all over the world, with most of them giving a vampire impression by showing fangs and fake blood

To make the experience even more interactive, Castalides Pictures has just launched a free iPhone/iPad and an Android APP titled VAMPCASTING to cast aspiring vampires from all over the world.

The first issue of the Vampire Wedding comic mini series, penciled, inked and colored by DC and Marvel comic artist legend Eduardo Barreto, will be presented at the end of October at the London MCM Expo Comic Con.
