On Auditioning

As you begin to dig into your sides for class, below are some thoughts to keep in mind:

Ask yourself why did casting pick these particular scenes to use to audition actors for this project?

They have a reason for why they have chosen the particular scene(s). Try to get to the root. My guess is that it’s a test of their story, the key moments for the characters and their personalities. These moments mirror the arc of the full script.

Try to ask yourself:

* What is the STORY of the scene? What is the ARC, of both the full script AND the audition sides?

* What is the style or genre?

* Where does each scene take place in the overall story?

* What is EACH SCENE about in relation to, AND independent of, each other?  How do they contribute to the overall story?

Once you have a firm grasp on what story is being told in your selected sides, you will have a better understanding of how to prepare to deliver that story.
