Held my first face to face audition today. I had all the trimmings – camera and tripod, table and chairs (for the scene), script copies and ice cold water. The one thing I forgot was what the hell I was doing. It can be really nerve racking when you are holding someone else to an expectation and you fumble about like a fool. The actor was very understanding and helpful, thankfully. I am certain that I was more nervous than him.
Hey the first audition is done, so it should get easier from here…I hope. I got some decent recordings of his reading and I even read a few line for him to work from. Strangely it is getting easier to be on camera, should that worry me?
Auditions are still open for the roles of Jonas (veteran reporter) and Marks (stern and abusive guard) so send in a head shot and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you know anyone looking for some additional material for their reels send them our way!
