On Set With Major Crimes Director Stacey K. Black

This is Part 1 of our “what do they want from me in an audition” series. Stay tuned for Part 2 next week!

Do you ever get in your head about what “they” want in an audition?

Me too.

Last year I booked a role on a high profile show (more on that audition in a minute, but first…), while I was on set, I sweet talked the director, Stacey K. Black into sharing what she wants to see from an actor in an audition.

If anyone can tell you what “they” are looking for, Stacey can.

Check out her short, sweet and articulate interview in today’s video!

Now about that audition I mentioned earlier…

Have you ever read a scene and thought, “There’s not much going on here”? I almost fell into that trap. Luckily I was able to use my audition technique, The Audition Game, to dig deeper.

Want to find out how the exact steps I took to turn a deceptively simple scene, into a powerful audition that booked the job? Check out our free workshop (see below for details)!
