Let me start out by saying that I LOVE TO AUDITION! Why? I don’t really know I guess it’s just something you either love or hate. I see each one as a new opportunity to reinvent myself and to sharpen my skills as I interpret a new script (which sometimes I admittedly do get totally wrong but that’s part of the fun). It’s about testing your own limits and finding unique ways to deliver a performance that is memorable and that ultimately gets you the gig. Of course, before you can audition though you have to find casting calls aka breakdowns and submit yourself or get your agent to do it for you. I personally submit myself to dozens of opportunities every week and this article will detail how I find auditions for you.
If you are like me and want to stay busy with auditions then you have to put in some work to make that happen. In addition, I highly recommend that you stay as targeted as possible with the opportunities that you submit to. I don’t think it helps you in the long run to become known as the person that will submit to anything. I think if you really feel you can play the part given the brief description (aka breakdown) then go for it, but otherwise move on to the next opportunity. The last thing you want to do is waste a casting director or producer’s time (they will most likely remember that). The key to getting more auditions is staying on top of them and submitting your information as early as possible in the casting process. Be diligent and of course be on time and never bail on an audition without a very good reason that you communicate in advance. You definitely want to be an actor they can count on to show up and deliver a professional audition. A good reputation can go a long ways!
