Getting the Callback – How to Give a Winning Audition

You’ve always dreamed of being an actor. You’ve been to dozens of auditions, but you have yet to receive a callback. You know that you have what it takes to be an actor but can’t figure out why the first audition is your last. Getting a callback isn’t simply about being talented, it is about preparation and execution. Take control of your next audition with these helpful tips.

Be Confident – Being confident takes practice. The minute you walk through the door, you are being judged, so you want to walk in with your head held high. Practice good posture and body language before you arrive.

Make a Connection – Be familiar with the material, if you can memorize the material so you can maintain eye contact. Making a connection with the reader will make the scene natural and more believable.

Know the Character – Read the entire script so you can pick up as many clues as possible about the character. You can gain insight into what the character thinks about him/herself, what the other characters think about him/her, and what the writer thinks about him/her.

Play the Opposites – There are more than the obvious ways to portray emotions. You can show anger or hatred in other ways besides yelling. Playing opposites is a much more exciting way than playing the obvious.

Kim Tassinari is new on the scene, but she has already found some success as an actress. With little experience as an actress, she meticulously prepared to audition for the role of Lady Macbeth. After nailing her audition, Kim found herself playing Lady Macbeth on a small, intimate stage in North Hollywood.

Goals of a new actor

New actors have a list of different goals they would like to be able to accomplish before they can say that they have made it. It is hard for a lot of people to go from nothing to fame in a few years. If you have a clear set of goals for what you would like to do in your career, it is important to follow them as closely to the letter as possible. Kim Tassinari knows just what it is like to write your goals and then follow them. Her goal was to be a doctor one day, and she achieved that goal. Then, it was to retire and become an actor, she also achieve that goal. You have to believe in yourself if you want to be able to fulfill the goals you set out for yourself.

One goal for new actors is to get their name out in lights. They want to be famous and they want to have a great career. Not every actor will have this opportunity, and it’s not necessarily about how good or bad they are, it is all about how hard they worked. Your goal of just being famous is not enough.

Sometimes it is harder to achieve your goals if you start shooting for the biggest one right off the bat. It is sometimes easier for you to start off with small goals, such as getting headshots made. This is an easily attainable goal that you can get done, and it will be well on the way to being famous one day.

Finding roles is another goal of actors. It can be discouraging to be in a city full of actors and not have any roles. But sometimes, you have to take the small ones in order to get to the larger roles. It is no problem to take a few commercials in order to get some money to help pay for other expenses. Goals do not always need to be large and seemingly unattainable. They can be small, enough to get your through to the next goal, that way you can make it to that large goal you originally started out with.
