The Casting Call 411

We've all had dreams of making it big as a movie or rock star, but have you ever tried making those dreams come true? What if we told you we had the inside scoop on how you can land a part in a movie, TV show or even a music video? Take a look at what casting directors look for when you're heading off to those nerve-racking casting calls!

Movie and TV Audition Tips - Getting The Call

When a casting agency is putting out an open casting call, they'll often advertise on local radio stations, on the internet, in newspapers and even get in contact with school drama departments. More often, casting calls and auditions are closed to the general public and you have to be a member of an actor's union to be invited.

Movie and TV Audition Tips - Get Noticed!

  • Don't cause yourself any unnecessary stress. Show up for an audition 10-15 minutes early and be prepared to wait.
  • Once you've made it to the audition, you want the casting director to remember you. If you've been given lines to read ahead of time, rehearse them with anyone you can. Being unprepared won't score you leads in feature films!
  • Try not to be nervous. We know you're bound to be anxious, but just remember that casting directors are people too and you'll do a much better job if you're relaxed.
  • Walk in with a big smile and a lot of confidence. Nothing blows casting directors away more than peeps who exude self-confidence.
  • Practice makes perfect! If you have the opportunity to take a drama class at school or at your local community center, do it. Just like in sports, you have to keep stretching and training your acting muscle if you want to land that big part.

After all, if there's one person who knows you the most it's the one good friend that's always been there for you. I can't handle lots of friends who don't want to deal with my problems and only respect me for what they get in return. Thank you my friend, I am agree
