Why do you go on auditions? What is it that gives you the hope
and the strength to go on auditions day after day, month after
month, year after year, never knowing which one will be THE one
that will land you the acting job of your life that gives a huge
push forward to your career, launching you into super-stardom?
Most people couldn't handle it, so kudos to you if you are out
there hitting those auditions with everything you've got, sticking
it out, and living for your dream.
There is no way around it, auditions are not the easiest thing
to go through. Many people would crack under the pressure. Many
do, and it's not a pretty sight. It's like watching the end of
the Iron-Man competition when that last contestant is crawling
towards the finish line, collapsing two inches later in a pool
of their own fluids, their spirit crushed, tears streaming down
their face, paramedics rushing through the crowd. Thankfully,
auditions do not have quite such a horrendous effect on those
that do fall to pieces under the bright lights and brisk orders
barked by a crusty Hollywood casting director, but it certainly
can take it's toll, so be strong and don't let 'em getcha down.
Auditions are like fishing. You should prepare methodically and
relax, relax, relax if you are going to be successful. Many people
treat auditions like they are going to the store, forgetting that
they in fact are the product, and they have to arm themselves
with tools like a memorized poem, visualization techniques, and
a positive, pleasant, and down-to-earth attitude that will set
them apart from the rest.
