Most people think of acting as the work they see on the silver screen; typically, the blockbuster movies that have those big-time actors in Hollywood. Everyone enjoys movies and more and more teens and kids want to star in movies as well. The romance of acting is something that is considered a very easy attained goal now.
However, just like with any other form of acting; film acting takes a bit of luck, patience; not mention training and dedication. The most common misconception is that you just need the look and the good sense to read some lines to be a star. This is very far from the truth! Movie actors work really hard but if you have the talent and skills; you may just have a chance. Everything begins with an audition.
The actor must be well prepared before even thinking about going into an audition. They should be involved in acting classes and will be consulting an acting coach before an audition to help with preparation. You must arrive fifteen minutes before an audition; being late guarantees you won’t be booked for the job or even get called for another audition with that casting director.
For the average movie audition the actor will perform a scene from the script, the scene is read with the casting director who responds in a monotone. From time to time you find yourself reading these lines in front of a room of people that includes the director, producer, choreographer and such. Your success depends on how prepared you are with the materials.
Auditions for movies can be intense, sometimes going on for months. It happens that way due to the many stages of the audition process required; the actor may have to return to audition further several times before landing the part or being rejected even. The wait and energy is worth it in the end, especially if you land the part. Patience helps when it comes to making it as a film star.
Don’t forget though that if you leave a good impression on the casting director; they may call you for future roles. Oddly enough sometimes not landing a role can actually lead to a better role later down the road. Which is why it is important to bring the same amount of professionalism to each audition. While you won’t win every role; the more you audition the better chances you will have in landing a role of your dreams. Work hard and hone your skill and you will be on the big screen yet!
