7 tips to give a great audition – Toronto Acting agency

Auditions can be nerve-wracking. Some can hide their nerves well, while others make it very obvious. Here are 7 tips to make your audition stand out.

1. Confidence

If you dont believe in your skills, no one else will. The audition begins as soon as you enter the room. Maintain relaxed body language and good eye contact. Walk in the room with your head up, good posture, focus, and relaxed. Be prepared and know your lines well. Show the casting team that they can trust you when you put you on a stage or in front of a camera.

2. Prepare your Character

Show your interpretation of who the character that you playing is. Think of 3 personality traits that you think the character has and write them at the top of the script. What is the characters body language like? How do they speak? Being very clear on who it is you are playing will calm your nerves.

3. Know the Scene

What is your character dealing with in the scene? Use your nervousness to put into how your character deals with the situation. Be confident in what the conflict is and what your characters objective is. It will affect the tone, rhythm, and inflection of your lines.

4. Focus

Breathe before you start a scene. Quiet your mind and focus. Commit to the character, the words, and the moment. Its not enough to know the lines, you have to believe them.

5. Connection to the other character

Make eye contact with the reader. Who is their character? What is their relationship with yours? Practice active listening and react as if you are hearing them for the first time. It should feel like you are the only two people in the room.

6. Be clear with your choices

There is always more than one more to play a character. Make a decision based on your character and be flexible in case you are directed to make adjustments.

7. Show personality

Showing your authentic self makes auditions stand out. Everyone in that audition is reading the same lines. Your own spin is what creates magic to make your performance unique.
