I had an audition the other day for a feature film and I was improvising on camera as directed, all seemed to be going well when the CD asked me to reverse the scene. I had no idea what he meant! Did he want the characters to reverse the roles? Or just to reverse the scene itself? I felt like such an idiot and I guess I should have done something, but I just professed ignorance and he didn’t elaborate. Needless to say, I didn’t get a call back and the part was perfect for me! What should I have done?
Ignorant in Reseda!
Can’t help you with that one. Strange. What I can say is that it is YOUR AUDITION and you should never put yourself out there without full clarification ever. You should not have continued YOUR AUDITION without knowing full well what the adjustment was in detail. Don’t forget… this business is extremely inconvenient. You have to download the sides, change your schedule, get all dressed up, deal with LA traffic, pay for parking, walk a mile and deal with the outer office nonsense all to not have clarification???? What a waste of your precious time and money.
I don’t have many credits on my resume. What should I do?
What you need to ask yourself is, if anyone were to turn over my picture and look at my resume, would they be engaged by my uniqueness to ask a question? Never be ashamed of your accomplishments. If you can whistle through your nose, write it down as a skill. You never know what casting is looking for. If you speak languages, have unique dialects, play professional ball or have CPR training, write it down. Anything that’s special about you can get you noticed. Focus on your Training/Special Skills section and beef up your theatre credits as much as possible. If you are interesting, people will be interested.
