Auditions: Tuesday, May 24, 2011

This page contains auditions posted on Tuesday, May 24, 2011.

There are so many different techniques that actors can utilize to achieve a solid performance. Many local teachers focus on different styles, and some may work perfectly, while others just aren't for you. Whether it's Stanislavsky, Viewpoints, Meisner, or just being you, there is a reason so many people rely on these techniques when focusing on training and improving your acting abilities.

What are some of the techniques you have used in your training, and what have you actually applied when working on set? What works for you, and what doesn't? Sometimes, depending on the role, being a method actor is the best way for me to get a true, honest performance, while others may laugh at method actors and think it's unnecessary to go that far to get a good performance.

Whatever works for you is what you should stick with, but it's always interesting to learn about other actor's techniques, and what your process is to achieve that perfect, natural performance.

Share with us what your process is and what techniques work best for you. Which teachers have you been drawn to that have helped you get that solid performance. Do you use different techniques for different character types? Is your process for film the same as it would be when preparing to perform on stage?

Let's get this week's topic of discussion going

As always, 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.



Eugene Auditions for Video

IRIS Educational Media is casting for its next production. We will be holding a second round of auditions this Thursday, May 26th.

In June, we will be shooting an educational parenting program for National Guard families. This program addresses stress management and effective parenting techniques for families with a parent in the National Guard, and we have several roles still to be cast. They are:

African American Woman (late 20s-late 30s)
African American Kids (male or female ages 6-12)

Hispanic Man (mid 30s-mid 40s)
Hispanic Woman (mid 30s-mid 40s)
Hispanic Kids (male or female ages 6-12)

Caucasian Man (40s)

Actors should be fairly clean-cut (i.e. no dredlocks or visible tattoos). We will shoot from June 13th-27th on weekdays, and each actor will be needed for 2-3 full days during that time.

Auditions will be held on Thursday, May 26th from 3:30-7:00 pm at our downtown office. If you are interested in auditioning please respond with a headshot. Or, if you are interested in the project but can't come down to Eugene to audition, you are welcome to send me your demo reel or tape an audition in lieu of in-person auditions.
