AUDITION TIPS

 

When called for an auditions or job, immediately grab a pen and write down all information. Map Quest address or drive by the day before to ensure you know how to get there.

Do not call the client or casting director (unless otherwise instructed)

DO NOT CONFIRM AN AUDITION IF YOU ARE NOT SURE IF YOU ARE ABLE TO DO THE AUDITION OR JOB. DO NOT CANCEL ONCE CONFRIMED. IF YOU NEED TO CANCEL AN AUDITION, PLEASE CALL ASAP.

Always be 15 minutes early for auditions or shoots.

Always bring: (Models) portfolio/extra comp cards; (Actors) 4 headshots/4 resumes'.

Sign in (your name, agency and agency phone...NOT YOUR PERSONAL PHONE NUMBER) and stay put. You never know how long the audition or job will take. BE PATIENT!

Do not bring your wife, husband, mother, children, aunt, uncle, grandparents or dog! It is not professional and there is not enough room.

Always audition in “Blue” unless told, otherwise. No logos or stripes on shirts. Females never wear dark lipstick.

Memorize script if time permits.

"Slate" means introducing yourself in the camera along with your agency.

You can calm nerves by bending over, shaking out arms and breathing.

When auditioning for commercials, videos, TV, or film (by yourself): stand in one spot, do not move body from neck down, and look in camera. When auditioning (with partner or someone else reading script with you) look at partner or script reader--NOT the camera (unless told otherwise by director).
