GET YOUR BEAUTY SLEEP BEFORE AN AUDITION OR SHOOT

“Sleep is that golden chain that ties health and our bodies together.” – Thomas Dekker

Everyone knows the expression “getting your beauty rest” and it is absolutely true! In order to look and feel your best, you need to get enough sleep at night.

Actors and models especially need to get their beauty sleep since they tend to have long working days that are all caught on camera. For this week’s Tip Tuesday, MAX Agency would like to give you all some advice regarding your sleep schedule to ensure you wake up looking and feeling your best before your big audition or shoot!

1. Adults need an average of 7-9 hours of sleep a night. Children and teens need even more than that. Pay attention to when you’re going to bed and when you’re waking up to make sure you’re meeting these requirements to function your best along with allowing your skin to regenerate.

2. Remove your makeup before bed. Leaving your makeup on overnight results in facial issues such as acne.

3. Tie your hair up. Keeping your hair away from your face throughout the night will result in less tangles in the morning. Hair also contains oils that when rubbed against your face can cause acne.

4. Dry your hair before bed. There are shower-in-the-morning-people and shower-at-night-people. If you shower at night, make sure your hair is dry before going to bed as sleeping with damn hair can cause breakage. The moisture on your scalp and pillow can also cause bacteria to breed and cause acne.

5. Don’t use electronics in bed. While very tempting to check Instagram before you fall asleep, staring at a screen right before bed will just keep you up. Place your phones and laptops away from your bed therefore you don’t get distracted by every notification you receive throughout the night.

6. Create a bedtime routine. Create a routine of things to do before bed that avoid screens. Write in a journal, shower, catch up with your spouse/roommates, read, meditation, etc.

7. Keep a consistent bedtime. Going to bed at the same time every night will get your body and mind into a routine. You should find it easier to fall asleep.

 

Follow these tips and you should wake up looking and feeling your best to rock that audition or shoot!

Wear a mask: Protect others

The use of face coverings in indoor, publicly accessible settings became mandatory in the City of Toronto on Tuesday.⚠️

“Evidence shows that wearing a mask indoors can help reduce the spread of COVID-19. It’s a simple, affordable, and reasonable action for each of us to take to save lives,” Toronto Board of Health Chair Joe Cressy said Tuesday. 

Anyone above the age of two without a medical condition that prevents them from doing so must wear some sort of facial covering when entering stores, public buildings, food outlets, community centres, houses of worship or virtually any other form of enclosed space. The covering must surround the mouth, nose and chin.

Self tape audition tips




‘Self-tapes’ will likely be an integral part of auditions now. Here are some tips to improve your self-tape audition process.

1) Lighting is the key – It is very important that you shoot in proper light setting. If your video turns out to be dark, you can always try mobile ring light or the DSLR ring light to enhance and improve your video quality. (Ring lights are available on Amazon)

2) Audio quality matters- If your video display is crystal clear but you have something running in the background, or someone in the house talking, it will distract you as well as the person watching your video. Your mobile audio (microphone) is sufficient and is good enough but make sure you’re recording yourself in a quiet room with no ambiance noise.

3) Follow the script and instruction- Every self-tape request comes with instructions from the casting office. Read it. Read it again and try to follow all the instructions while recording yourself. Once the recording is complete, check if you have missed anything before submission.

4) Framing-
You should be in the center of the frame with the bottom of the frame at the center of your chest and the top of the frame slightly above the top of your head.

5) Give your best- Taped auditions allow you to shut off the camera and take as much time as you need to jump into a new scene, allowing you to truly capture and record examples of your best work ever.
