SUGGESTIONS for PROCESSING PRIOR
1. See the details for the audition
You need to check out the requirements of the sample performance very carefully. This is done because they might require resumes, a certain kind of outfit, head shots or a comprehension of the kind of film or play being cast. Remember to take everything with you that they might ask for, and make sure you ask the casting people or your agent if you can’t comprehend a need.
2 Have a speech ready for the audition
It is very important that you prepare a monologue from a movie or a play that is just like the one you are giving the sample performance for. You can customize it to the character you are enacting. If it is available, acquire a copy of the play or script for yourself and choose a scene that you can perform well. Learn the scene by heart before the performance and try not to make yourself dependent on the script alone as the director might ask you to do another scene. Moreover, the casting people can also want you to display completely opposite set of feelings for the scene. In that case, you have to be ready and prepared to adjust to the new settings and convince them that you are the man for the job.
3. Be punctual
Go before time to the audition to complete any forms and try out some warm up exercises you need. This way, you will be prepared to act whenever they ask you to give the performance by calling your name. Furthermore, you will not get nervous this way. Lastly, it is advisable to listen to the tips of the casting director to other actors.
