You have planned this so carefully, but, as is the reality of show business, so have the countless other people auditioning alongside you.
Don’t let the part of your dreams slip out of your hands. There are ways to stand out from the crowd and make your talent heard at every audition you attend! It’s time you take control of your destiny as a superstar—focus on these helpful tips to keep you feeling confident at every audition!
Let your Confidence Shine
Do you feel nervous before an audition? Don’t worry—it’s perfectly natural! But the most important thing is to not let it show. Approach the casting directors with your head held high and with a smile on your face! Standing up straight and making exceptional eye contact are wonderful, non-verbal ways to express that you are confident and capable.
Show Your Personality
The industry is looking for performers who are passionate, curious and engaged in their material. It’s okay to ask a few questions about the part you are auditioning for—it shows them that you care about the material and how you present it!
Understand the Character
It’s crucial to understand the motivations of your character before you step in front of the casting directors. Get a feeling for their personality, the impressions they make on the people in their lives, and what the author or playwright thinks about the character you are auditioning to portray.
A great way to do this is to not only be thoroughly prepared on the character’s dialogue, but to look beyond that. Think of what is being unsaid in a scene and how your character reacts to that. Think about if the character is getting what they ultimately desire in the scene, or if not, what obstacles stand in their way. It’s deep thinking like this that will make you stand out from the rest.
