Today I met a great casting director. She was sweet, easy going, humble, smart and real.
She made me feel safe in the Audition Technique class.
All the feedback and notes were clear and precise. I felt empowered.
I thank a friend of mine who told me that I had to meet her. Now I know why. She is one of a kind.
Things that I learned from today's class:
1. Use my environment, who's sitting around me, if there are obstacles in my way, how do I deal with them?
2. I could start my audition standing, then sitting, use my chair as a prop if I needed.
3. Know when to drive the scene.
4. Specific choices that has to do with my character and scene. Be bold. Commit to them.
5. If I am auditioning and my scene has two different moments and places back to back, don't take a loooong pause between them.
6. Know to what kind of network I am auditiong for ? Comedy in HBO is darker than Disney Comedy. How do I work my acting timing around that?
7. Dress appropiate, not in costume but suggesting the character's style and the professional that I am.
8. Find out what casting director's cast local talent like me. Have Local talent, New York on the top of my resume.
9. Don't do blind submission to casting director's. Find out what projects they are casting and be specific when submitting.
10. They don't bite. They like actors. They like me.
11. There specific things that can be mime, like if I am using a computer in my scene, use it.
12. Place the other character's that are in the scene with me.
13 Headshots. I will just now if it works for me or not. Am I getting booked base on my headshots?
I need to look like my shot.
These are some of the important things that I learned today.
