Nickelodeon Seeking Fresh Puerto Rican Talent to Feature in Upcoming Projects

Nickelodeon is on the lookout for fresh Puerto Rican talent to feature in upcoming projects!


El filme Dora and the Lost City of Gold se inspira en el conocido programa del canal de cable dedicado a los niños.

Hot on the heels of Dora and the Lost City of Gold, Nickelodeon's brand-new theatrical movie inspired by the network's beloved animated preschool series, Dora the Explorer, with features an all Latino cast, Nickelodeon, the number-one network for kids, which recently turned 40, is now looking to help integrate more diverse actors and characters into its programming and movies, amongst other productions, so that viewers can identify themselves with characters they see on television.

Nickelodeon has a long history of programming featuring diverse actors and characters, including Dora the Explorer, The Brothers Garcia, Taina, and Gullah Gullah Island.

On its mission to further include diverse characters into its programming, Nickelodeon is now searching Puerto Rico for local talent to feature in upcoming productions.

Nickelodeon is specifically seeking children and adolescents aged between 11 and 16 years, who have the talent to act, mainly in the genre of comedy, and have good charisma and comic timing. Other attributes that will be taken into consideration are that kids should have a good singing voice and that they know how to rap. Those interested should speak fluent English, no matter if they have an accent.

“Nickelodeon is trying to expand in Latin areas for its viewers, due to the boom in the number of Latinos in the United States, and now especially Puerto Rico. In fact, they have Nickelodeon Latinoamérica and it doesn't cover Puerto Rico. But although the channel is not seen in the Country, for other reasons, they are looking at Puerto Rico to find new talent,” said Zoraida Sanjurjo, director of talent and in charge of looking for candidates.

Puerto Rico has been no stranger to Nickelodeon, whose parent company is Viacom. In the early 2000s they made a series titled Taina, whose main character was a young Puerto Rican. Nickelodeon has also held several Summits in the country, with the purpose that participants learn how to develop diverse characters.

Nickelodeon's new talent search is the second and represents a great opportunity for Puerto Rican artists, following the new film version of West Side Story also looking in the country for some of it's main characters. Sanjurjo was also in charge of finding the actors for this project, which will directed by Steven Spielberg.

“For us Puerto Ricans it is positive that they are looking for talent in the country. In this case it means an opening to a market that we have not previously had access to for children. This is the first time ... to my knowledge. It is a tremendous opportunity, because it will help the great amount of artistic talent in this country, especially for youth. This country is full of talent in all areas. The West Side Story production came to look for Puerto Rican talent, because it knows that there is a lot of talent here. Take a look at Ricky Martin, Marc Anthony ... ”, highlighted EL VOCERO Sanjurjo, who has selected actors for the cast of countless Hollywood movies filmed in the country.

Nickelodeon emphasized that the important thing is that they are talented children, because they will not consider sex, race, ethnicity, skin color, or disability.

Parents or guardians interested in having their children participate in upcoming Nickelodeon productions should send a short introductory photo and video showing their skills to the following email address: nickelodeonstarpr@gmail.com.

From El Vocero de Puerto Rico:

Nickelodeon a la caza del talento boricua

El canal desea integrar niños y jóvenes puertorriqueños en sus nuevos proyectos

El filme Dora and the Lost City of Gold se inspira en el conocido programa del canal de cable dedicado a los niños. >Suministrada

Integrar personajes diversos en su programación ha sido parte de la filosofía de Nickelodeon, en las pasadas décadas.

El primer canal de cable dedicado a niños —que recientemente cumplió 40 años— busca que sus espectadores se identifiquen con los personajes que protagonizan sus series, shows y películas, entre otras producciones.

Uno de los ejemplos más clásicos es Dora la exploradora, serie educativa animada, que tiene como protagonista a una niña latina de siete años. Sus ocho temporadas tuvieron un gran éxito. La trascendencia de Dora llegará a la pantalla grande el 9 de agosto, cuando estrene Dora and the Lost City of Gold, una versión no animada del personaje.

Como parte de esa integración de personajes variados, Nickelodeon busca en la Isla talento puertorriqueño para una de sus próximas producciones.

El canal busca específicamente, niños o niñas y adolescentes, entre los 11 y 16 años, que tengan talento para actuar, principalmente en el género de comedia. Debe tener carisma y el “timing” para este género. Otros atributos que serán tomados en consideración son que tenga buena voz para cantar y que sepa rapear. Los interesados deben hablar en inglés fluido, no importa que tengan acento.

“Nickelodeon está tratando de expandirse en las áreas latinas para sus espectadores, por el auge de la cantidad de latinos que hay en Estados Unidos, y ahora especialmente Puerto Rico. De hecho, ellos tienen Nickelodeon Latinoamérica y no cubre Puerto Rico. Pero aunque el canal no se ve en el País, por otras razones, ellos consideraron a Puerto Rico para buscar nuevos talentos”, indicó Zoraida Sanjurjo, directora de talentos y encargada de buscar a los candidatos.

Puerto Rico no ha sido ajeno para Nickelodeon, cuya compañía matriz es Viacom. A principios de la década del 2000 realizó una serie llamada Taina, cuyo personaje principal era una joven puertorriqueña. También ha realizado varios Summits en el País, con el propósito de que los participantes aprendieran a desarrollar personajes diversos.

La nueva búsqueda de talento de Nickelodeon es la segunda y representa una gran oportunidad para artistas puertorriqueños, luego de que hace meses la producción de la nueva versión cinematográfica de West Side Story, buscara aquí algunos de los personajes principales. Sanjurjo, también estuvo a cargo de buscar los actores para dicho proyecto, que realizará el director Steven Spielberg.

“Para nosotros los puertorriqueños es positivo que estén buscando talento en el país. En este caso significa una apertura a un mercado al que no hemos tenido acceso anteriormente, para niños. Esta es la primera vez... que yo sepa. Es una oportunidad tremenda, porque va a ayudar a la gran cantidad de talento artístico que hay en este país, especialmente para la juventud. Este país está lleno de talento en todas las áreas. La producción de West Side Story vino a buscar talento puertorriqueño, porque sabe que aquí hay mucho talento. Miren por ejemplo a Ricky Martin, Marc Anthony...”, destacó a EL VOCERO Sanjurjo, quien ha seleccionado actores para el elenco de un sinnúmero de películas de Hollywood filmadas aquí.

Nickelodeon hizo énfasis en que lo importante es que sean niños talentosos, pues no considerará ni sexo, raza, origen étnico, color de piel, ni incapacidad.

Los padres o encargados interesados en que participen sus niños deben enviar una foto y vídeo introductorio corto donde demuestre sus destrezas, al correo electrónico, nickelodeonstarpr@gmail.com.

Nickelodeon Greenlights ‘SpongeBob SquarePants’ CG-Animated Prequel Series ‘Kamp Koral’

Update - Original Nickelodeon USA Press Release | Share the News: http://po.st/KampKoralAnnounce:

Nickelodeon Greenlights Kamp Koral, Original Animated Spinoff of Hit Series
SpongeBob SquarePants


BURBANK, Calif.—June 4, 2019—Nickelodeon today announced it has greenlit Kamp Koral (working title), an original spinoff series of its iconic hit, SpongeBob SquarePants. The CG-animated series (13 episodes) introduces 10-year-old SpongeBob SquarePants during his summer at sleepaway camp. The series is slated to begin production in June at Nickelodeon in Burbank.

“SpongeBob has an incredible universe to expand upon and the greenlight for Kamp Koral is a testament to the strength and longevity of these characters known and loved by generations of fans around the world,” said Ramsey Naito, EVP Animation Production and Development, Nickelodeon.

In the series, SpongeBob and his pals spend the summer building underwater campfires, catching wild jellyfish, and swimming in Lake Yuckymuck at the craziest camp in the kelp forest, Kamp Koral.

Marc Ceccarelli and Vincent Waller (SpongeBob SquarePants) are co-executive producers on the series.

Since its launch July 17, 1999, SpongeBob SquarePants has reigned as the number-one kids’ animated series on TV for the last 17 years, while generating a universe of beloved characters, pop culture catchphrases and memes, theatrical releases, consumer products, a Tony award-winning Broadway musical and a global fan base. SpongeBob SquarePants is the most widely distributed property in Viacom International Media Networks history, seen in more than 208 countries and territories, translated in 55+ languages, and averaging more than 100 million total viewers every quarter. SpongeBob SquarePants is created by Stephen Hillenburg and produced by Nickelodeon in Burbank, Calif. The character-driven cartoon chronicles the nautical and sometimes nonsensical adventures of SpongeBob, an incurably optimist and earnest sea sponge, and his undersea friends.

Update (8/14) - Vincent Waller has revealed on Twitter that Nickelodeon is slated to premiere Kamp Koral in 2020!

Update (8/3) - HELP WANTED!: Nickelodeon Animation is now hiring production staff to work on Kamp Koral! Job positions currently available include:

- CG Character Modeler
- CG Generalist/Environment Modeler
- CG Texture Artist
- Character Technical Director / Rigger

The Encyclopedia SpongeBobia wiki recently got the chance to interview Brian Morante, in which the SpongeBob SquarePants storyboard artist talked about working on the show, and revealed that he will be working on Kamp Koral!

Spongebob456: Hey Brian, have you heard anything on the 3rd SpongeBob movie? I'm super excited!

Brian: I am not sure if I'm supposed to say this but I have been working on it for the past month.

Brian: I am just helping out a little bit. Helping (hopefully) [to] make things here and there funnier or fix little things.

BigRupé: How do you feel about Kamp Koral, Brian?

Brian: I am going to start boarding the pilot next week. I'm excited to see what I can do with it. Vince, Marc, myself and everyone else is going out of there way to make this just as funny and weird and crazy as the main show. The goal is to not make a "Looney Tunes Baby" type show.

Ninflan: Hey Brian, did you board the live action stuff in Birthday Blowout?

Brian: Yes. Fred boarded the birthday party stuff

Chickenkrispies: What compelled the crew to go with the change in stylistic direction of the past few seasons?

Brian: I think through the making of the second movie they learned they could do a lot if they did a quick and dirty version of a scene. Get it in editing as fast as possible. figure out what the scene needs and work on making it funnier. The results came out more dynamic or more visual than the process they had before. So in taking the job of the board artist and splitting into two different jobs (rough board artist or board director and more of a cleanup /plussing board artist) it incentified the rough board people to draw more poses, draw funny and add more gags because they wouldn't have to worry about cleaning up and putting all their work on model. That would be someone else's job who could also take it make it even funnier. Also over the last few season they have been trying to keep it a little bit looser rather than sticking with strictly on model drawings which can sometimes suck the life or the energy out of a pose or facial expression. Anyways I hope that makes sense. Its just about moving it away from being perfectly sterile on model show with a lot of scenes where characters just stand next to each other and talk back and forth. That's what Family Guy is for (not hating on FG but its a different thing from what we are trying to make).

Scrooge200: Hey Brian, can you confirm that mayonnaise is an instrument?

Brian: Yes.

Brian also revealed that his favorite SpongeBob meme is the one where SpongeBob buries himself and the word 'nope' appears!

It was first reported in February that Nickelodeon was eyeing an expansion to the beloved franchise, and was exploring, among other options, “an original story about SpongeBob and Patrick, or a Sandy Cheeks stand-alone story.”

“That’s our Marvel Universe,” said Nickelodeon president Brian Robbins said. “You have this amazing show that’s run for almost twenty years.”

Nickelodeon is thought to have over half-a-dozen SpongeBob SquarePants spin-offs currently in development.

Original post:

Nickelodeon has given a 13-episode series order to Kamp Koral (working title), a spinoff of the network’s signature series SpongeBob SquarePants! While the mothership is a classic 2D cartoon, the off-shoot will be a CG-animated series, which serves as a prequel to SpongeBob. It introduces 10-year-old SpongeBob SquarePants during his summer at sleepaway camp. The news was first reported by Deadline.

Earlier this year, Nickelodeon, under new president Brian Robbins, announced that it is developing for the first time ever spinoff projects for SpongeBob SquarePants characters. Kamp Koral marks the first such project to get a green light. It is slated to begin production in June at Nickelodeon’s facilities in Burbank, California.

In the series, SpongeBob and his pals spend the summer building underwater campfires, catching wild jellyfish, and swimming in Lake Yuckymuck at the craziest camp in the kelp forest, Kamp Koral. SpongeBob SquarePants' Marc Ceccarelli and Vincent Waller co-executive produce the prequel.

SpongeBob has an incredible universe to expand upon and the greenlight for Kamp Koral is a testament to the strength and longevity of these characters known and loved by generations of fans around the world,” said Ramsey Naito, Nickelodeon’s EVP Animation Production and Development.

So far, the creative forces behind SpongeBob had tried a CG approach to the characters in The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, the 2015 sequel to the successful live-action/2D film The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie. A third feature, The SpongeBob Movie: It’s a Wonderful Sponge, is slated for release next year.

We can only hope that Kamp Koral will answer critical questions in the SpongeBob SquarePants universe like where SpongeBob learned “The Campfire Song Song” or how to protect himself from Sea Bears.

The pickup for Kamp Koral comes on the eve of the 20th anniversary of SpongeBob SquarePants's debut on July 17, 1999. It will be marked with "Best Year Ever", a tribute that includes an original one-hour special, SpongeBob’s Big Birthday Blowout.

It’s SpongeBob’s birthday in “SpongeBob’s Big Birthday Blowout,” which features for the first time the celebrated voice talent behind SpongeBob, Patrick, Mr. Krabs, Sandy, Squidward and Plankton playing live-action doppelgänger versions of the animated characters they voice. In the one-hour special, Patrick and SpongeBob journey to the surface world, where they come across a few familiar characters during lunchtime rush at The Trusty Slab restaurant. Meanwhile, the Bikini Bottom residents set up a surprise party for SpongeBob. The special, premiering Friday, July 12, at 7:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon USA, also features special guest stars, including David Hasselhoff (Baywatch), Jack Griffo (The Thundermans), Daniella Perkins (Knight Squad), and Kel Mitchell (All That, Game Shakers).

Created by Stephen Hillenburg and produced by Nickelodeon in Burbank, the character-driven cartoon chronicles the nautical and sometimes nonsensical adventures of SpongeBob, an incurably optimist and earnest sea sponge, and his undersea friends. While his exact age on the mothership series has never been disclosed, he is an adult who has a job and owns a (pineapple) home.
