  1. Hi! These are great tips! I am adament about actors creating the before-moment at the beginning of their audition!

    However, just wanted to share info about casting directors in the busy-busy southeastern part of the country. I was told by the great Mark Fincannon of Fincannon and Associates (who casts so many projects in the southeast and beyond) that CDs often throw all of their submission thumbnails up on the screen and begin their search by selecting those with the ideal “look” they are seeking. Those are the auditions that are seen first! Since most of our CDs now request that the slate and full body shot be placed at the END of the video, there would be nothing on the screen if you walk into the shot. The result would be that your video won’t even be seen by casting if they happen to ID their PERFECT choice early in the selection process. Even if you do have the perfect look for the role!

    Thanks for reading! 🙂

    • Thanks for the tips!!
      And, thanks, Sharon. Although great tips provided, I was wondering the same about what shows up first in view which could get passed by at a quick glance if nothing in the frame at first.
