Become obsessed with Auditioning
The audition, ah. It merits capital letters since it is the sole means through which you will be able to get employment. Don’t think you’re doing it alone; even the best actors have to apply for roles. But how can you overcome severe anxieties and perform well enough in an audition to ensure that you receive the part? (Disclaimer: there are no guarantees, ever). Let’s look at a few suggestions that might be helpful.
Develop Your Acting Talent
Make sure your craft is strong; have you acquired any useful skills? Do you have vocal training? Does your body behave how you would like it too? Do you regularly practice and rehearse? Have you been studying directors by watching movies or reading plays? You must start over from scratch if any of these questions have a negative response. You must excel if you want to get chosen!
Own the Space
Although auditions are not only about you, but you should strive to have a pleasant experience. Before leaving the stage, smile, welcome the casting directors, and say your goodbyes to everyone. This will not only make you more likable to others, but it will also make you happier in general, which can only be a good thing.
What You Can’t Control, Ignore.
Some aspects of life are under our control, while others are not. Try to maintain control over the things you can, and let go of the things you can’t. You may prepare for your audition as much as you can, be on time, and know your lines, but you can’t force the panel to employ you.
Be joyful Or, if you’re not, pretend to be. Nobody is going to hire an unhappy, somber actor who looks more like he’s on his way to the firing squad than a window into his future. Be productive. Even if the audition was a complete flop, you may still salvage the situation and have a better experience. Consider what went wrong and make plans for the future. Determine your strengths and concentrate on enhancing them even more. Being constructive in your self-criticism can increase your chances of succeeding in the upcoming audition.
The auditions never end
Avoid basing all of your hopes and goals on a single audition for a single role. Obviously, you should give it your best, but if you don’t get hired, there’s no use in throwing yourself over a bridge. There won’t be any more auditions or opportunities to succeed if you do that!
Knock show business down off its pedestal
I’m sure you want to be a part of it SO DESPERATELY because it’s the coolest thing ever. But this work is simply that—a job—just like any other that generates income and covers your expenses. It’s acceptable to lust for it and fall in love with it, but you also need to work for it. Removing some of the starry-eyed romanticism will help it work for you rather than against you.
Allow yourself to make it big
Regardless of whether you receive a callback, you should be proud of the job you did. Enjoy it and be present! You should offer yourself a great round of applause as long as you are well-prepared and give it your best.
