It’s a new year and as always, there needs to be some reflection, some assessment.
How often do you go back and look at past auditions? I’m certainly not suggesting that you spend hours going over each one, but it is not a bad idea to do a little self-examination.
Think about all of the auditions that you did this past year. Which ones were you the most proud of? They may not necessarily be the ones that got you a booking. So choose your TOP 5. Go back and take a look at them. What worked really well? What did you like about them? Looking at them today, do you still believe the performances? Are there things that do not seem totally authentic as you view them with a little more perspective? Assess and analyze. This process will make you a better actor. By the same token, you can choose 5 auditions that you were not as crazy about. Maybe you will see some real positives when you watch them again. Or, this can be an opportunity to see how much you have grown as a performer. Use this exercise to help you evaluate and set goals for the new year.
Assessing your body of work is a pretty crucial step, so you can move forward in a positive new direction for 2019!
