Acting auditions can be tough for some actors, but auditions are an essential part of the job. Many jobs require an interview, but for an actor, there are many interviews as part of the job itself! So the role Auditions play are essential to an actor’s work and is in fact, how they attain each job, therefore viewing Auditions as part of ‘the work’ itself can help actors overcome the cycle of expectation and possibly disappointment if they don’t secure a role.
Jess offers a range of techniques to prepare for auditions including: Being comfortable in Chat to Camera; Standard Audition protocol; Camera techniques; Flexibility; successfully handling of nervousness and stress; and all aspects of scene preparation.
