Easy Tips For a Better Acting Audition

Nervous About Your Audition? Here Are Some Easy Tips For a Better Acting Audition!Acting auditions can be really nerve wracking but if you go into it with the right attitude and these tips, you'll have a better audition and will flow through it with ease. Just stay relaxed, and practice a couple of simple tips and techniques which we'll talk about. Are you ready? This is what you need to do: 


The greatest thing you can ever learn about movie acting is relaxation. Why? Because the camera picks up every little thing that you do. Every blink of the eye, nod of the head, and every sound you make.
Another reason you should stay relaxed: it helps you listen and react to your scene partner. Any film actor will tell you that he earns his living by listening and reacting to what's being said.
Staying relaxed might seem easy to those who've never been in that situation, but when the director is behind schedule and running out of daylight, the pressure is going to fall on you.
But don't worry about all that. Stay cool and take your time. Relax.

Ignore the Camera

For the rest of your career as a film actor, the camera will be right there. (Sometimes, really close.) But you are going to ignore it. It's not there. It doesn't exist.
In fact, when the camera is rolling, only you and your scene partner exist. Everyone else disappears. The crew, the director, the producer, the camera man, everyone. They all disappear.
How do you, the actor, accomplish this? You hang on to your scene partner's eyes. The most important facial feature on film. (After all, the eye is the window to the soul.)
So when you look at your scene partner, you look them in one eye. Literally. Don't switch your focus from eye to eye. Instead, pick the eye that's closest to the camera lens.
There are many other ways to better your presence and preparedness for your acting audition and one of those is simply taking a class. At the New York Acting School for Film and Television, we make sure to provide you with the best classes, techniques and even coaches available.
