How NOT to End Your Audition Scene

by | Aug 24, 2017 | Blog

How NOT to End Your Audition Scene Through our classes and workshops we’ve seen thousands of auditions. Great auditions. Terrible auditions. And everything in between. One of the things we see again and again is a piece of the audition puzzle that very few people talk about. It seems to us that many actors are simply not aware of the impact this part your audition can have on the impression you leave behind. It has nothing to do with the scene work at all.  But it’s just as important.  It’s that beat just after your scene is over. How does one best end an audition? In today’s video, we’ll show you what NOT to do.  Stay tuned until the end, where we share a simple, yet powerful way to end your audition. Remember that your audition is more than the work you put into your scene(s).  From the moment you enter the building to the second you leave, you are giving an audition.  Treat every person you meet with kindness and respect, and conduct yourself with professionalism at all times. End your audition on a confident note.  And then leave.  That’s really all there is to it. ==================================================== Los Angeles Actors – want to learn how to play The Audition Game..and win?

On Set With Major Crimes Writer Michael Zara

by | Aug 17, 2017 | Blog

On Set With Major Crimes Writer Michael Zara This is Part II of our “What do they want from you in an audition” series. If you missed Part I, be sure to catch my interview with Major Crimes Director Stacey K. Black. Do you ever get in your head about what “they” want in an audition? You’re in luck! On the set of my recent booking on Major Crimes (more on that audition in a sec), I was able to pull aside the writer, Michael Zara, and ask him this very question. Hear what he had to say in today’s video! Interesting to hear the difference in perspective between the writer and director! About that audition I mentioned earlier… Have you ever read a scene and thought, “There’s not much going on here”? For my Major Crimes audition, 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 exactly how I booked the job? Find out in our free workshop… Get our most powerful audition secrets at our upcoming FREE workshop in Los Angeles, “Audition Secrets From A Series Regular.” If you are getting in the audition room, but not booking, we can help!

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.

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”?

“Should I sit, or should I stand?” That is NOT the question…

by | Jul 27, 2017 | Blog

“Should I sit, or should I stand?” That is NOT the question… When preparing your audition have you ever wondered, “Should I sit or stand?” We run our acting workshops like a casting session, with actors coming in one at a time. This question comes up a lot. It’s the inspiration for today’s video. Should I sit or stand is a good question. But it doesn’t go far enough. The audition chair is your friend. In fact, if you know how to work that chair to your advantage, it can become a thing of magic. See what we mean in today’s video. The Magic Chair An audition is an unnatural circumstance. You don’t have the benefit of a real location, wardrobe, or other actors. Your job is to use all resources available to you to create the illusion of a fully lived out reality. The chair is your friend in this endeavor. It can be a desk, a bar stool, a car, your couch… Using the chair to create an imaginary location will add another layer of depth and reality to your audition. It really is a tool of magic!

What’s your character’s Personality Type?

by | Jun 22, 2017 | Blog

What’s your character’s Personality Type? Have you ever picked up an audition script and thought, “Yes! This is exactly the way I would think and act,”? Most likely, you and your character share the same personality type. On the other hand, have you looked at a scene and wondered, “Why would my character do that? It makes no sense!” If your character’s behavior doesn’t make sense to you, odds are you have a different personality type. In our class series, Audition Game Pro, one of our most important steps is to identify the Personality Type of your character. In an ideal world, you would have plenty of time to explore the psyche, motivation, and worldview of your character. But let’s be real. The turn around time on an audition can be less than 24 hours (in some cases much less!). If you’re going in for a character who’s personality type is far removed from who you are, it can feel impossible to create a compelling audition in a short amount of time. Enter the Personality Type Funsheet. Check out today’s video to find out the 4 Main Personality Types you’ll encounter in every script that comes your way… Now download the Personality Type Funsheet. Use it to identify your character’s main personality type, and traits. This will help you quickly create audition choices in alignment with your character’s personality traits (especially when it’s different from your natural way of being). This funsheet is directly from the Audition Game Pro Digital program (and we usually save it for students of the class) so get it while you can! Leave a comment. What personality type are you? How can this funsheet... read more
