COMMERCIAL AUDITION TIP # 10 – GOOD AUDITIONS ARE REMEMBERED
ACTING WORKSHOPS WITH JAN AND JON
Frequently we hear actors express this frustration at not getting called back:
“I gave a great audition and nothing happened.”
Our best advice is to avoid holding on to that disappointment.
It’s not out of the ordinary for a Director to say “I love this actor’s work. And I’m determined to find the right project for them.”
Good auditions are, in fact, remembered. Perhaps your look wasn’t quite what they were after or they went with a different ethnicity, gender or age; there’s always a good possibility that the spot itself got canceled.
Something else to please remember: We can attest to the fact that bad auditions are immediately forgotten.
You might be thinking everyone is talking about how you stunk up the studio. First of all, it’s seldom as horrifying as you thought it was and secondly, it’s all happening way too fast for anyone, other than perhaps yourself, to dwell on it.
Hey, we all know everyone has a bad day now and then.
Good auditions are remembered, bad auditions are forgotten.
Your task: No matter what, Move On and Stay Busy.
