Casting three young East Asian girls between the ages of 3-12 for BuzzFeed.com video directed by Eugene Lee Yang

Auditions will be held Tuesday, April 22 (sometime midday, more than likely between 10AM – 4PM). Director will send sides for the actress to prepare once an audition date and time are confirmed. Email headshots and resumes to eugene.yang@buzzfeed.com

AZAMI / 8-12
The eldest sister. Strong-willed, independent, a critical thinker. Bosses her other sisters around with a righteous indignation. A take-charge, big personality, prone to temper tantrums, but still maintains being adorable. She makes herself seen and heard in a big way. She always gets what she wants but, in her heart, cares most about looking after her little sisters.

LEILANI / 6-10
The middle sister. Sweet-natured, caring, and full of hope and empathy. She’s the girl who stops to smell the roses and delights in girly things. Her biggest concern is making sure everything is fair and is generally level-headed besides throwing the occasional moody fit. She’s a nurturer and a giver and likes to make everyone around her feel as happy as she does.

ZAHARA / 3-7
The youngest sister. Offbeat, artistic, and little weird, but totally cute. She loves to play in the mud and paint with her fingers and notices the strange and beautiful things in life. She’s a little star and princess, constantly entertaining others with her adorable antics and is very hard to keep still. She’s brimming with personality and humor and loves being the center of attention.

This is only for copy/credit but the upside is massive online exposure. The BuzzFeed audience is in the millions and each video, guaranteed, receives hundreds of thousands of views.
