Auditions: Monday, April 11, 2011

This page contains auditions posted on Monday, April 11, 2011.

Let's dive into a new topic of discussion for the week.

So, you've done your research to ensure that the audition is legitimate, and you've just received your audition time slot. You attend the audition, and it goes incredibly well, you received great feedback, and now you wait with anticipation to receive news about a callback. Giddy with excitement, you want to tell all of your friends, or even post on Facebook all about the audition. Whether before or after the audition, you want to share the news with friends and family, and even the world of Facebook.

But not so fast. Many seasoned actors will advice against sharing news of auditions, or even news of callbacks. If cast, this is exciting and can sometimes openly be shared, but actors are encouraged to keep their auditions and callbacks private. While there are many reason as to why, one of the biggest is that the audition process is a standard part of the job for an actor, but booking the job is what actually counts. Also, some of the big shows filming in Portland may have non disclosure agreements, meaning they are required to keep certain episode or character details quiet until the episode airs, and sharing information about your audition is in violation of this. So when you get called back for the role of a lifetime as the spy on Leverage, the producers and writers may not have publicized that they were bringing back the spy, and this news would have an effect on viewers, and even become an issue for those who enjoy watching the show every week. It may even jeopardize your ability to book the role.

A recent conversation took place on the social networking websites, where a local, professional actor, and very talented teacher and filmmaker wrote, "A car salesman doesn't post on his wall every time he shows a car to a customer."

For some of us, though, just getting the audition is a huge accomplishment, and is such a success that it deserves to be shared. Even sharing that success with the world of Facebook would provide the encouragement we need as actors to boost our confidence and push us to go up for more auditions.
This may help put it into perspective for some, but I wanted to open up this discussion in our chat box.

Let's start up this week's chat and discuss your thoughts about posting auditions, callbacks, and even booked jobs for friends and family to see!

If you are a fan of the blog, please share this with actor friends. If you have any feedback for me on how to improve my blog, share this with me so that I may work on improving the blog.
