The world is full of talented actors. If you want to make it in this field you’re going to need your talent, of course, but also you need drive, determination and a little luck to get a big break. If you don’t bother to find out anything about how acting auditions work, to be blunt, you won’t get anywhere. If you don’t where the casting calls are taking place and what directors are looking for, you don’t stand a chance.
Luckily these days you don’t need to be an industry insider to get the low down on all the jobs that are out there. Thanks to Audition Now you can subscribe to a text information service giving you tips on how to get acting jobs along with details of where auditions are currently taking place. You must 18 to use this service and texts costs £1.50 each with a maximum of three per week.
This service is breaking down the traditional acting establishment and allowing new fresh faces a shot at the best jobs in TV. And it’s about time too. Everyone deserves their shot at stardom. There’s so much raw talent out there, beyond the classically trained and traditional acting class. In fact certain shows, like Hollyoaks for example, encourage this approach. So don’t fret if you aren’t classically trained. As long as you have potential then other areas of your acting ability can be worked on and fine tuned in time, then get yourself along to casting calls.
Acting auditions can be nerve racking affairs. By having an insider’s perspective on what the director is looking for, you can steady your nerves knowing full well what you need to concentrate on and how to impress. It’s like having a head start. Don’t go in blind like 99% of the other hopefuls. Give yourself the best chance you possibly can.
