How to create an audition that books

Are you ready to play the Audition Game…and win?

Pilot Season is here, and the auditions are rolling in.

It’s time to bring your A-game into the audition room. When you get to a certain level of auditioning, everyone is a good actor.

So how do you stand out?

In today’s video, Wendy incorporates the first three steps of The Audition Game. Watch the before and after to see the incredible difference just a few steps of the Audition Game can make in your work!

What is The Audition Game?

A step-by-step technique that turns your auditions from a monumental event into a game you can play and win. The Audition Game gives you a protocol to create powerful auditions, even when you’re short on time.

What Steps Did Wendy Use in this Audition?

Step 1

Scene Shift:

  • The direction in which the story moves for your character.
  • Every scene will shift from positive to negative, or negative to positive.
  • Your character must live out the journey of the scene shift, moment to moment, to forward the story.
  • All scenes shift.

Step 2

Moment of Decision:

A moment where your character weighs his/her options (Should I do this… or not). Your character has to make a decision.

Moment of Discovery: A moment in a scene when your character has been provided new information by another character, the situation, or a self discovery.

Step 3

Create a Strong Beginning/Ending:

Bookend the scene to make yourself stand out.
Use simple physical movement to create the moment before (which is in alignment with the scene).
Fully live out the last moment with a strong opinion and/or physical action.

ABOUT ACTING PROS

Acting Pros was founded by star of Lifetime’s Army Wives Wendy Davis (117 episodes) in 2014 to teach actors the vital, real-world skills they need to stand out in the audition room and on set. Unlike many acting studios out there, the audition and on-camera skills taught at Acting Pros are the same skills that Wendy and our instructors use in their own careers. Nothing that we teach is theory. What we teach are proven, repeatable, effective tools used by working actors.

In 2015, Sundance Award-Winning actress and actor-marketing expert Emily Grace joined forces with Acting Pros. The combination of audition technique, on-camera skills, and marketing plans that get results offer actors a complete training on the skills they need to create a sustainable career.

ABOUT LILACH MENDELOVICH

Lilach was hand picked and personally trained by Wendy Davis to teach The Audition Game. Not only is she an expert at The Audition Game, breaking down a scene, and on-camera technique, her students consistently book jobs on high profile film projects and television shows.

She is so effective as a teacher and a private coach that she now trains our entire teaching staff. Lilach’s commitment to excellence has resulted in a stellar roster of Audition Game instructors.

It’s all about confidence in the audition room

It’s all about confidence in the audition room

What does it mean to have confidence in the audition room?

Do you set yourself up with an “if/then” equation?

If I memorize all my lines, then I’ll feel confident.”

“If I have enough time to prepare, then I’ll feel confident.”

Confidence isn’t a destination. It’s a way of being.

See what we mean in today’s video!

It’s All About Confidence

Now, what the actor did in his particular audition, may not fly in every casting office.  Not every casting director will let you play musical chairs with their furniture. In some cases, the big bold choice you prepared isn’t possible because the tripod is broken, or some other technical reason.

Remember that confidence is not about what you’re doing. It’s about how you’re doing what you’re doing.

Don’t talk yourself out of bold choices before you even get to the audition room. Just be willing to roll with the punches if the office can’t accommodate what you planned. Casting wants to see you take bold risks. It makes their job easier!

Don’t spoil the surprise

Don’t spoil the surprise

When you go into your audition, you’ve already read the script (one would hope).

You know exactly what is going to happen. But how do you behave as though you don’t?

It’s a tricky line to walk as an actor.  You don’t want to give away the end of the scene at the beginning.

In today’s video, Lilach Mendelovich shares a simple tool to use in your audition scenes so you don’t spoil the surprise!

Check it out:

Expectation is a powerful thing in acting and in life. When you set the expectation to get something other than what happens in your audition scene, it will feel fresh, alive and spontaneous!
