How to Audition Online
On behalf of TVLesson.com, I'm Lori Wyman with Lori Wyman Casting and I'm going to be bringing you audition tips today from my new book The Organic Actor.
Let’s talk a little bit about web posting. Now what do I mean by Web Posting?
Nowadays, so many auditions are sent on the internet. I do it almost daily. Let me explain what it is and how easy it is and how it can actually help you in your search for an acting job.
Let’s say you live in Florida and there is an audition and a job in the state of Louisiana. A plain ticket at the last minute could cost you $800.00 or getting in your car and driving at the minimum could be 12 hours of driving. That’s a lot wear and tear on you, your car, time, and lot of times you don’t have advantage.
But web posting means you get the dialogue which can emailed or faxed to you, you find yourself a camera, a computer, you take, record that audition. It goes right into your computer, you compress it into a little movie, you email it. And literally, five minutes later, the casting director four states away has your audition.
Make sure — this is crucial. The person reading with you is good. You don’t want somebody who doesn’t know how to read.
The next thing which crucial, make sure that when you’re taped, you record it here, here. Because we’re sending it over the web, you don’t want something really wide. You want something tight so that we can see your face.
Make sure the sound is clear and the lighting is good because whatever you record on this end is exactly what they will see on the other end. It will save you time, it can save you money, and it can get you a job.
