Makings of a KingsIsle Commercial Part III

In my last blog, I wrote about the live action aspect we had in our Wizard101 Tournament commercial.  One of the key components to making that spot was the actual actors.  We were extremely fortunate to work with four very talented young actors.  All of them were part time aspiring actors who were also attending school full time.  I was amazed at how professional and hardworking each of them was and felt honored to work with them on this commercial.  Each of them wrote a short bit on their experience being in the Wizard101 commercial.  I hope you enjoy their perspectives.

trentHey everyone my name is Trent aka The Myth Wizard. When I first received the call to go on the audition for this commercial I was ecstatic, because I knew that there was a chance that I would get to be a part of the insanely awesome world that is Wizard101. After a few days of not hearing anything I thought that I didn’t get the part, but while I was sitting in English class half asleep, trying to study, my phone started to vibrate. I asked to leave the room to answer it, and when I picked it up I heard some of the best news of my life! I was going to be a part of this commercial. Immediately after school I went home and started studying, but I wasn’t studying for school… I was studying Wizard101. When the day finally came to go to the set, I have to admit, I was a little bit nervous. I walked in not knowing what to expect, but as soon as I met Bianca, Natalie, Tino, and the crew I felt like I was part of a Wizard101 family. Shooting was amazing, I was thrilled that I would be getting to play the Myth Wizard who I personally think is the coolest, but hey that’s just my opinion, and we got to shoot on the coolest sets I’ve ever been to.

After shooting was done I couldn’t wait to see the commercial, because I knew that it was going to be special. When the day finally came to see it after weeks of waiting I could barely sleep. Then when I saw it I was awestruck. It was amazing, and I can’t thank everyone that worked on it enough for letting me be part of this incredible commercial. And I hope that you guys like it as much as I do.

tinoHello everyone my name is Tino and I was the Death Wizard in the commercial (a.k.a. Wolf DeathBlade). When I found out I got to be a part of this commercial I honestly had no clue what this would be like, but as soon as I stepped on the set and got filled in on what the dream was I was instantly overjoyed. As soon we out on our gear and began to film I could feel the magic come to life.

Being the Death Wizard is definitely a privilege since I had always thought that they were the coolest and baddest of them all. And I believe that the film crew did an amazing job making it look that way to. From viewing the final commercial I was so impressed and ecstatic at the turnout. I can’t wait to finally start playing the game and maybe I’ll see some of you at the Tournaments!

natalieHi guys! My name is Natalie and I am the Ice Wizard in this commercial. Being part of Wizard101 was such a great experience. I met so many fantastic people while preparing for and making this commercial and I had a blast on set. KingsIsle even pulled a prank on us while filming! In the scene where we were walking down the hallway, 2 pranksters jumped out and scared us, which made Bianca scream! It was unbelievably funny when we watched it. Before the filming, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. All I knew was that I was ecstatic about getting the part and that I was really lucky. The filming went great and we knew that the commercial was going to be epic, so I couldn’t wait to see it. The first time I saw the commercial on tv, I was so excited! I noticed something that I didn’t see when I watched it on youtube, my wand lit up with frost! How cool is that?! That’s one of many reasons why I personally think that Ice Wizards are “cooler” than others. Anyway, thank you guys so much for watching and commenting about the commercial. You’re the best and I can’t wait to see all of you at the tournament! Good luck!

biancaHey guys! My name is Bianca and I play the fire Wizard in the new Wizards101 commercial.

I was so excited to be chosen for this part; especially after finding out that my character gets the final shot!  On the first day of filming I was shocked by how our modern outfits so closely resembled our characters wardrobe, and to my surprise I got to do my own nails.  It was amazing to see how detailed the process actually was and when I saw the final product I was thrilled!  Seeing all of our hard work come together was astonishing.  But it is weird watching your favorite show then having your face pop up on the screen.  I am blessed to have had this experience and I look forward to meeting fellow Wizards.

    I love the commercial you guys did like this, you should totally do more like this; and adding more wizard101 scenes aside from just battling would be pretty awesome as well.

    OMG my name is Natalie too! X high fives Natalie x Wait, I wasn’t talking about high fiving myself, i was talking about the actor, but i am not an ice wizard, I am a fire wizard. X high fives Bianca x
    X high fives Tino and Trent x Just wondering, but how long did it take to make this commercial?

    • Fred Howard / Jan 17 2014 2:34 pm

      About three months start to finish. However, the live commercial shoot portion was over two days. First day was getting the actors wardrobe fitted and the second day was the actual live action shoot.

    i wish i could be on that commercial. I am Bailey Lifeflower and a life wizard. i also like pirate101 but wizard101 is my favorite. my only comment is that being a nonmember has a lot of disadvantages.

    hahahaha i never notice the wizards had names!! so when i saw the death wizard guy had the same name of the first wizard i ever made who is now Wolf DeathBlade level 90 Myth (yeah MYTH) wizard!!

    My favorite has always been the life wizard , not much attack so you must think your way through the spiral .
    I noted there is no comment from anyone playing the Life Wizard In the commercial , was it space limits ?
