Introducing the first of five new Book-To-Film Adaptations for 2014…THE INFERNAL DEVICES: CLOCKWORK ANGEL!
In the meantime, pick up a copy and sit tight while our site renovations continue. (We’ll be back online soon!)
The goal of User Based Casting is simple: to score one of our members an audition for a leading role in an upcoming YA book-to-film adaptation. To qualify, users film and upload a set of required monologues for their desired character. Fellow members critique these audition videos and offer suggestions for improvement. Users then go on to compete in Voting Cycles, allowing fans to determine which unknowns are the best candidates for their beloved characters.

I think I'm still in shock and denial about this happening, I was online and I just clicked refresh and it was gone. Is there any chance UBC will come back at all? We were so close.

UBC will come back when/if I am able to find solutions for the numerous flaws that have kept us from succeeding. Fixing these issues will take time—it could be a few months until we’re back online.

I have taken User Based Casting offline indefinitely. I apologize for any inconveniences this may cause.

I want to thank everyone who partook in the User Based Casting movement over these last five years. You’re all fabulous people and I know you’ll go far with whatever path you choose to forge for yourselves.

I don’t know if User Based Casting will return. What I do know is that the site has many crippling flaws and that I am the worst of them all. Because of my shortcomings, I failed you, myself, and the website itself. There aren’t enough words or GIFS out there to convey how goddamn sorry I am about that. There never will be.

Take care of yourselves and fly on.

I just think that UBC needs to get out there more. There are plenty of YA lovers and actresses and readers and all who would LOVE the idea of UBC and definitely join/give support/promote, but a lot of people don't know about UBC. I think the problem with #SaveUBC is that it didn't get out to enough people, because it was basically just swimming back and forth throughout a few people who are already active instead of reaching old members and prospective members.

We didn’t manage to get out there in the five years we’ve been around, and that’s completely my fault. I lack marketing and PR skills.

I was never the ideal person to run UBC, and I really can’t express how sorry I am for having failed you guys, myself, and this website.
