Craze Agency Acting checklist

Posted on Updated on

Actors Checklist

1-Always bring a photo to the audition, a callback or you have met the client before. No exceptions!

2-Always bring a resume to the audition. No exceptions!

3-You must staple the resume back to back to your photo. Do not ever attend an audition without both your headshot and resume stapled back to back. One staple in each corner!

4-Always be 10-15 minutes early to your audition and make sure you have the correct address and directions to the audition. No exceptions or excuses!

5-Once at the audition look for a sign in sheet and make sure you clearly fill in the correct information if there is a sign in sheet.

6-Do not bother or ask the Casting director a lot of questions, research them before the audition.

7-If they are recording the audition they will ask you to slate. When they say “slate” look into the camera and smile and confidently say hello my name is (state your full name). They may also ask you to state the part you are playing and your agency. Do not tell them this information unless they ask for it!

8-When you are ready to perform your part find the mark or place they would like you to stand or sit (your option to stand or sit unless they specify).

9-When you start your performance only read to the person you are having the dialog with. Do not look at the camera or the casting director, client, etc. unless they are performing the scene with you.

10-Give as much eye contact as possible to the person you are reading with, even when they are reading their lines. Really listen to them and react naturally to what they say.

11-When you perform the scene; act as natural and believable as possible. You must come off as being very relaxed, comfortable and confident.

12-Really know the scene and characters inside and out. Prepare it over and over. Try to have the scene memorized, but make sure you know the lines and never break character!

13-The auditions are not practice sessions. The clients auditioning you expect you to know what you are doing and be a professional finished product. Get the training before you start attending auditions!

14-Often they will not have you do the scene more than once. If they do and they give you directions or changes really go overboard making the changes.

15-Have fun! Remember you are an entertainer. Clients do not want to hire or be around boring run of the mill talent.

16-If you receive a call back, try to look and perform the scene the same way.

17-Do not call you agent after each audition asking if you were hired or have received a call back. The agent will call you if they want to book you.

18If you accept an audition you must attend!!!! No exceptions. If you are not 100% sure you can attend, do not accept the audition, we will understand. (We usually give the client an advanced time sheet on who exactly will be at the audition and what time they are scheduled). If you are not going to be available when the job if being completed do not accept the audition.

19-Do not get discourage if they did not hire you. Every client and situation is different. The biggest key to success in this business is patience and perseverance!!!!!

20-It is your career, so practice, practice, practice, because the competition is! If you need

An Actors preperation guide before auditioning

Posted on

These are some of the questions you should answer when you prepare to perform or audition an acting scene. Be creative and try to think out of the box. Casting Directors, producers and directors respect actors who are original and creative

If you do not know the answer below just use your best judgment but make a choice. There really is not a right or wrong but just your interpretation.

By using this list below it should help you to perform and understand the acting scene much better.

Casting directors stress that you need to make and be able to perform strong choices when auditioning.

When practicing your audition do it for a friend or family and see if they are able to answer these questions by witnessing your actual performance.

Always try to remember the audience only knows what you are thinking by your actual performance. They do not have a script in front of them.

Learn to connect with the audience by being able to let them feel and understand what you are thinking and conveying.

Make a worksheet every time you audition and fill in the following questions.

What is the physical description of my character?

What is the personality like of my character?

What are my emotions?

What is the personality of the other characters in the scene?

What is our relationship?

Where is the scene taking place? Describe the setting.

What is the time of day?

What type of Film, T.V. series or Commercial is this?

What is my character trying to accomplish?

What are the other characters trying to accomplish?

What details or nuances that make sense I can add to the scene?

What is the pace of the scene?

Where are the key shifts in the scene?

Do I completely know and understand the scene?

Now see if your performance conveys these details. With this method you begin will start to understand your character and provide a much richer and interesting audition. Now go get an audition and have a blast with it! If you have further questions call us at 801-438-0067, 208-433-9511 or go online to http://www.crazeagency.com
