To Audition

1. DOWNLOAD THE SIDES FOR YOUR CHARACTER: 

  • From the character list, download the sides for the role(s) you’ll be auditioning for.  (Feel free to audition for more than one role.)

2. RECORD YOUR SLATE: 

  • Speak into the camera, giving your name, location, representative’s info (if you’re represented), height, age (this is voluntary), and the character you’re auditioning for.

3. SELF-TAPE YOUR AUDITION: 

  • If your character has multiple sides, record each scene separately.
     

  • Important Director’s Notes:

  • Please take the time to memorize your lines so that you deliver them with ease, freedom, and conviction.​

  • Don’t look at the camera, as this usually comes across as unnatural.  If your character is talking to someone, make us believe you’re really talking to someone.

  • Don’t pre-record and play back other characters’ lines, as this will probably drain your reading of freshness and spontaneity.​

  • In fact, if possible, if you have dialogue with another character, have somebody physically in the room with you (or on Zoom) reading the other character's lines in real time with you.

  • Don’t worry about the background for your audition. We will be focused 100% on your reading, so a white wall or plain sheet behind you is preferable.​​

 

  • And above all: Please, please, please take chances.  Don’t play it safe.  Go for broke.  Surprise us. We are not looking for predictable characters, so don’t try to “give us what you think we want.” Create an original, never-before-seen character full of nuances and quirks that we’ve never met. In short, you introduce us to the character you’re reading for.  We beg you to go too far in imagining a character rather than play it safe.  And if you’re afraid of going too far and want to submit more than one reading as well, please do; we’ll watch them all.

 

  • The subject line of the email should simply be: “[Your Character] Audition”.  (Example: ELLA AUDITION.)

  • In the email, include your name, email address(es), and phone number(s), or your representative’s contact info.

  • Include links to your audition videos (please do not attach videos).  Acceptable formats.​
