I’ve added screencaps to the tweets (source here and here.) The casting agency uses a gmail due to the large amount of submission they will receive due to the fact it is an OPEN casting call (though even in the future, do you research to be safe. i.e. If they ask for money, that’s a no!)
The casting director is AVY KAUFMAN. She’s a very big casting director who’s credits include Life of Pi, Salt, Scream 4 and Lincoln among others and has worked in the industry since the 1980′s. See her background via IMDB and Wikipedia.

― Sound of My Voice (2011) Maggie: I felt this…terrible sense of loss. Like when you wake up from dreaming about someone you love so much. And you turn around in bed and remember…that they’ve been dead for years.
I saw this image when I was a kid. The photograph of Jupiter taken by NASA’s Voyager. Beautiful but nothing special until shown in rapid succession. Suddenly Jupiter was alive, breathing. I was hypnotized.
This is one of the most beautiful films I’ve ever seen. The story, the details and the characters are so inspiring and deep that I was kind of shocked when the movie was over. Indie movies are the best, man.
I really like the contrast and the connection between science and religion, and this movie used this theme very well. I was expecting a boring love story but it ended up messing me up for weeks because I couldn’t stop thinking about it.
The cinematography and the soundtrack are amazing.
The actors are so beautiful, damn. If you like hot people talking about science and religion, that’s it. Astrid Bergès-Frisbey made me question my life choices.
Stop saying that this film is not scientifically accurate because no one cares!!!! The story is good, and that’s it. It’s a movie, not a Stephen Hawking’s theory. And it’s not about religion either, it only ‘explains’ the connection between the ‘spiritual world’ and science.

We are The East, we don’t care how rich you are. We want all those who are guilty to experience the terror of their crime. It’s easy when it’s not your life, easy when it’s not your home. But when it’s your fault, it shouldn’t be so easy to sleep at night. Specially when we know where you live. Lie to us, we’ll lie to you. Spy on us, we’ll spy on you. Poison us, we’ll poison you. We will counterattack three corporations in the next six months for their worldwide terrorism. And this is just the beginning.
Any woman who doesn’t call herself a feminist is confused about what the word means. A feminist is for the cause of liberating women all over the world. And a woman who says she’s not a feminist is only saying that because she thinks it’s unappealing to men.
But any man worth his salt loves a feminist. Only men who are afraid of the feminine in themselves are afraid of women
