We’ve auditioned thousands of talented actors and filmmakers over years so we know a thing or two when it comes to giving a great audition!
Make sure you give yourself the best shot at success by checking out the tips below!
1. Have a professional attitude!
Make sure you’re not too friendly and you’re not too rude. It’s all about finding a balance and remaining professional. Also, even when you think we’re not watching – be nice to other people auditioning/interviewing, no one wants to hire you (or accept you onto a course) if you’re already causing problems.
2. Don’t waffle!
The best way not to waffle is to be prepared. Make sure you know the points you want to bring up and talk about. Have lots of things to show physically rather than talking – we want your skills after all.
3. Make sure your laptop/iPad is charged!
It’s not a great impression if your laptop dies in the middle of showing people something. Be prepared and get that laptop all charged up! That said, it’s not the end of the world if it dies so remember not to appear too panicky or stressed – the film industry doesn’t need any more stress than it already has!
4. Make sure you can back up your claims!
It’s all well and good saying you’ll make a good director – but we need to SEE that you’re a good director! So, have something to show to back up your claims. If you don’t have a lot of experience, that’s fine, but even small things can help us see that with a little nurturing you could do great things.
5. Enjoy it!
Who doesn’t love bragging about themselves and making people look at your creative projects? Enjoy it! This is your time to shine.
