Getting Over Those Pre-Audition Nerves

Going into an audition can be extremely nerve-racking. Luckily, we have a few tips to help you stay calm and focused before even entering the audition room.

What’s a better way to pump yourself up than with some great music? Create a playlist with some up-beat songs to get you excited and in the zone!

Try not to stress over your material at the last minute. Take the moments leading up to your audition to encourage yourself, don’t spend them over-preparing. You’ve worked hard and practiced- you know it! Now you just need to trust yourself.

It’s important to warm up your body (not just your voice) before entering an audition. Make sure to do some light stretches to get out any stiffness and shake away those pre-audition jitters.

Don’t think about the competition. It may be intimidating at times seeing everyone in the holding room going out for the same role as you. Try not to compare yourself to others and remember that you have something special that sets you apart from the rest.

Get out of your head. Don’t put so much pressure on yourself to book that one role. Of course you want to nail the audition but remember that if it doesn’t go as planned, there will always be another opportunity right around the corner. If you keep that in mind, you will go into the audition feeling more relaxed, which will work to your benefit!

Confidence is key. This may be the most important tip when auditioning. If you don’t believe in yourself, neither will the casting directors. So go out there and show them what you’ve got!

Organizing Your Way To Success

It’s always been said that organization is the key to success. However, sometimes we forget just how crucial orderliness and structure can be for an actor. As a fellow actress (and intern), I understand the importance of remembering things. Not only do we as actors have to memorize our lines, but we must also remember details such as the names of casting directors and the times of our auditions. What if you have more than one audition in one day? What if you have five in one week? It’s so easy to miss a detail every now and then.

This brings me to my number one tip for all actors on how to become more prosperous. I recommend that you buy a notebook or journal. Perhaps make a spreadsheet if you’re savvy. Whatever it is, start a log.

The first step is to write everything down before your auditions. Start by listing the name of the project of which you are auditioning, the date, your role, and the casting director. Once you have the key components listed, get into the gritty details. Write down exactly what you wore and how you did your hair and makeup. Maybe you just got your hair highlighted. Write it down! Although it would be nice to remember all these small details, it simply is not realistic.
When it is time to go to your callback (fingers crossed), you can look back at your handy notes. Make sure to wear the same makeup/hair that you wore to your audition unless told otherwise by casting. If they liked you a certain way the first time, give them that same person in the callback!

At the end of the year, you can look back at all of the auditions, callbacks, and bookings you had and see if there are any patterns. Are you working with one casting director more than others? Are you booking more auditions when you wear a certain outfit or play a particular type of role? Since you now are organized, you will have this all written down.

Now go ahead and make it your goal to double the number of auditions, callbacks, and bookings every year! Good luck and get organizing!

Gratitude

“Getting you the opportunity to do what you want full time, that’s my dream.” One of our talent agents said this to a young girl looking to model with Take 3 Talent. The moment she heard these words, the girl’s face lit up with a great big smile. As an aspiring actor interning at a talent agency like Take 3, I am constantly reminded of how hard these human beings work to make our dreams come true. It’s not just their job, it’s their passion, and they do it very well. For this blog post, the Intern Team at Take 3 Talent wanted to share our appreciation for all talent agents and their work to make dreams come true.

 
To all talent agents, thank you.
