Have you ever been to a party, walked up to someone you’d never met before and said,
“Hi. I don’t know anything about you. But I really want you to like me.”
But when it comes to the audition process, this very same approach happens quite a bit.
When you get an audition, what steps do you take?
You probably learn your lines, make choices, rehearse, pick out your wardrobe.
But do you take time to know who you’re going in for?
If you skip this step, you’re in luck.
Today’s video shares some simple questions and easy steps you can take to “know before you go.”
Taking just a few minutes to research a teeny tiny bit about who you’re going in for will boost your audition confidence.
Know Before You Go
Remember, marketing is simply building relationships with people who need what you have. The operative word being people. When you can connect with a person in a genuine way, through common values (such as their body of work, your taste in films), you’ll worry less about “being liked” in the audition room.
The best relationships are peer to peer, and knowing before you go is the first step to creating a strong professional relationship that lasts.
