Remember that the minute you walk into that room; you’re being noticed. It’s up to you how you present yourself and how you want others to see you. Good posture, your body language and dressing sense speak way before you do. Always remember, a smile goes a long way!
Be a team player
Auditions are a great way to make new connections in the industry. With each audition, you will meet important people who help you in your journey. If you appear to be someone who is difficult to work with or is impolite; there is a possibility that they may not be a call back.
Do your homework
Understand your character to the teeth! If you are to be donning a character’s skin, learn and research the vision. Ask questions like: What does your character think about themselves? What do other characters think and say about your character? Then get your input on the character. Let the panel understand why you are the best for the role.
Calm the nerves
Nervousness is a difficult feeling to move on from. If you fumble while delivering the dialogue, don’t restart. Take a deep breath and move on to the next. The casting director and panel are there to see you succeed in whatever is best for you. Don’t let your mind tell you otherwise. Let your personality shine through.
Have good eye contact with the casting director and the panel. Along with memorized lines you need to connect with the audience. Have a dialogue with the people watching you and let them immerse themselves in the scene. That’s what gets you the part.
How It Ends
When you’re done, say something like thank you or looking forward to hearing from you. Don’t stay back to ask when the call back will be or you could call them. Speak when you’re spoken to and don’t give excuses if you think it didn’t go well. Just smile and leave when you’re done.
