As a voice over actor, you will be auditioning A LOT. Because of this, many actors consider the "job" to be the audition, rather than the actual bookings. Why not go one step further and perform each audition as if you have already booked the job? Actor Tituss Burgess from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt says: “I’m excited to show [them] what my version of this story would look like. [They’re] going to be able to get a little condensed show. That [takes] the pressure off getting the job.”
If you are able to approach your auditions with the psychological commitment and security of an already booked performance, then you’ll stop trying so hard to be chosen. It will also free you up to make choices that you may not usually make and bring some swagger to your read. Confidence goes a long way in an audition, not only in the support it brings the actor personally, but also the reassurance it gives to the producer and director because you elevated their script through your performance.
On June 18th, practice inhabiting an audition as if it were a performance in Nailing the Audition, where you’ll have a chance to showcase your skills to a well-respected Bay Area talent agent. Alternatively, we are also offering Vocal Courage on July 10th, where you'll discover how to boost your confidence with performance strategies that help overcome stage fright, hesitation, and fear.
