I've focused this "Audition Part 2" special edition on the progress of an actor feeling uncomfortable going into an audition, then how it was improved each time.
(I could have just show you the final audition cut), but I want to show the progression.
Another part of it is using the mirror to practice. Usually after you practice, you become a lot more comfortable. However, only practice makes perfect, so the more you practice, the more natural you will get.
●When you speak, you must talk clear and slow.
○Commerical and film/tv auditions are a little different, and this is more like the commercial audition practice.
●Usually for film auditions, you don't introduce yourself this way, sometimes you only have one camera set up to record the actor's conversation with the director. This way, the director can get a feel of you in your most natural state, then try to find the right cast.
○Also, part of this exercise is to teach about the relationship between eyeline and camera. People usually are not aware of this but it is a very useful technique to apply in an audition and performing in front of the camera.
An audition is to let the client or the director to know you, or to imagine you as the character they are trying to cast. Therefore, you must take the audition very seriously.Because its importance, you have to practice this skill everyday in order to become more natural and it will help you to get a call back from your audition.
Please share your thoughts on this chapter of the teaching. Thank you.
