Casting and entertainment companies are turning towards online apps and websites to interview or audition out-of-towners. For casting directors only in cities like New York and L.A., they must have a large online presence to get the best actors available for the job. Actors should be aware of using technology and feel comfortable using it if they are to participate or apply for auditions.
Here are a few tips that will help you in your online experience and hopefully impress your casting director:
Auditioning for a show isn’t just about the show itself. You need to make an impression on the Director, Casting Director, Producer, etc. You want to make an impression so even if you’re not right for the part your auditioning for, you could find yourself getting a callback for another casting down the road. So, be on your game, do your homework and be prepared for anything.
Lunch Time Auditions
Do you have a casting around the noon hour? Skip it! From around noon to two, people are getting hungry. If you have an audition and you give it your all but someone is chowing down on their dinner, they might miss the best part of your audition. Try and work around those hours, if you can.
