The Emerging Filmmakers Project’s Audition Survivial Guide helps actor’s understand the process from the other side of the table and gives them practical and useable tips on how to change the way an actor auditions.
A prominent Casting Director from New Mexico recently told a Denver Talent Agancy: “We don’t have time to teach actors how to not act.” Local actors returning from out-of-town auditions report that directors are telling them they want “more you.”
Take this class and you’ll understand what it means to not act and, by exension, to be more you. See, casting directors and filmmakers know that you are much more interesting than any character you could create. And they know that whatever character you try to play, there’s already somebody who already is that person. So stop trying to be somebody else!
Once you are comforatbale doing that, you won’t dread monologues, cold reads or call backs any more. Because all you have to do is be you. See? Not so scary afterall.
