HOW TO IMPRESS THE CASTING DIRECTORS

As actors, it can be nerve-wracking to walk into the audition room and perform in front of total strangers. These people get to decide if you have a shot at booking the job, so like it or not, you will definitely get nervous. 

Some actors allow their nerves get in the way of their performance, while others begin to act out of character. 

The casting directors already know that you are nervous so they understand, but beyond that, they want to see that even with the nerves, you are confident in your talent and your performance. 
The important thing is not just to know the lines and movements, but to leave a good and memorable impression.

Here are 20 of the most impactful and effective tips that will help you nail your auditions and book more work:

ACTING TERMINOLOGIES ALL PROFESSIONAL ACTORS MUST KNOW!

I wrote a blog right here on An Actors Playhouse about "WHAT EVERY ACTOR SHOULD KNOW ABOUT AUDITIONING", and I gave you a list of words every actor should know the meaning of. I got a lot of positive feedback, and a lot of you asked for more. 

So, I have decided to share more terminologies that you must know before going on a professional set.

BUILDING A CHARACTER

Sometime ago, I traveled to shoot a moviePrior to my arrival I had studied my script, done my character analysis, script breakdown and all that was left was for me to run it by the Director to make sure that I was on the right track. 
However, I was thrown of course when the Director told me that I was actually playing the role of a woman who exists and not a fictional character.

I am sure some of you might be wondering, 'Ok, so why exactly did this throw you of course'?
