Auditions, they are demanding.
They test you.
They stretch you.
They inconveniently show up when they want to.
They show you what you are made of.
They expose your strengths and weaknesses.
They challenge your psyche.
They help you rise above.
They honestly can Rock. Your. World.
If you are at the stage of your career where you receive auditions you know they usually come at unexpected times. A time that doesn’t always accommodate your schedule.
Ding! You just got the audition notification in your inbox, but…
you need to go make a living in that instant, care for a child or parent, you’re dealing with drama that’s taking place in your life, […]
I’m not gonna lie, the art of being patient or have patience in the midst of rejection after rejection in all facets of your career – year after year is not easy.
Recently, I upleveled in a BIG way in my acting career.
After finally booking my first co-star role after moving to LA – five years later, I have now booked my first Guest Star role and it ended of being Top of Show! That’s a big win for us actors right?
Now here’s the reality…guess how long it took me to book a Guest Star role since I moved to LA? […]
Finding your Flow.
The time had come…I decided to return to acting.
I have to say it’s been fun getting back in the game and in the swing of things again.
I feel like more of myself again!
Am I fully energized, strong and ready to slay any and all casting opportunities? Honestly, I’m still making tweaks. While also finding the time to fit in acupuncture, chiro and physical therapy appointments around auditions. All to enhance my health to a state of true strength, vibrancy, feeling free in my body, and just downright feeling good.
I pause to ask…how are you taking care of yourself […]
I have a confession to make.
Recently during my time off…I got booked. Yep, I got cast. Yes, I was on set.
How did that happen while I was not auditioning?
I’ll start by saying, “Never count out any of your auditions.” So check it, it was early this year in January when I had the casting opportunity. I read for four different co-star roles for the upcoming season. They said shooting would take place anywhere between March-August.
There are those auditions that you just know you did a slam dunk, you went all in, and it just felt “right” -aka – lived and not […]
Don’t go to get booked. Go to book the room.
It’s what we commonly hear as actors if you’ve been in the game for a minute, have taken an on-camera class, or have been on many auditions, but you haven’t booked anything yet – you’re getting frustrated and a mentor, actor friend or teacher reminds you of this…oh so golden piece of advice.
If you are new to the acting scene and you’re now learning this for the first time, keep reading and once you begin to audition – own it. And watch your career and confidence unfold because of it.
