Commercial Auditions #1

June 21st, 2011
Going to a commercial audition?
First of all, get the word ‘commercial’ out of your head.
You’re auditioning for a short film.
If you were auditioning for a role in a short film would you be:
Looking at your watch, thinking I’ve got to get to the gym before the afternoon rush?
Visiting with friends?
Scanning your cell phone? Texting?
No, you’d be preparing to go in for the audition:

You’d be thinking about the environment of the scene, focusing on what you’re character wants in the scene, wins and losses, in short doing what’s necessary to prepare yourself to make your audition believable.
Well, it’s no different with commercial auditions.
You’re auditioning for a short film. Approach it that way.

And, of course as always, don’t forget to have fun.
