You have a big audition coming up, you’ve worked very hard. You’ve planned exactly how to get every beat pitch perfect. You know precisely what you want to do, how you want to sound, and you are confident that
you are going to
kill this audition.
And you ARE killing it at the audition, exactly as you had planned.
Then, it happens…
Casting Director: That’s great, I just have a slight adjustment.
Your ears start ringing, your palms begin to sweat, your heart races.
You: An adjustment? You want an… adjustment?
And your mind goes blank.
Has this ever happened to you?
Did you know that many times, Casting Directors give adjustments to learn more about your craft? They want to see if you can take direction; if you have more in you than what they just saw.
That a part of their job is to glean this information for the director and producers?
There is a lot going on behind the scenes when a role is cast; probably more than you could ever imagine.
How do you make yourself stand out?
How do you prepare yourself to get that call back?
How do you show the Casting Director that not only can you take adjustments; but you can handle them like a pro, and that you are going to be a breeze to direct?
