CASTING HACK: One Line Audtitions

CASTING HACK! Auditions Suck. Especially when the casting director gives you only 1 line to prove you can act. Here's a piece of advice on how to slay the audition.

Because we can tell in as few as 5 seconds if someone can act. If we know they can't, we move on quickly. It's the same in a casting office. You have 5 seconds to impress them, and if you manage to get that far, then you may get 5 more seconds. If you're REALLY connected and bringing your best to the audition, they may watch the whole monologue or whole scene. But you must grab their attention with the first line.

Don't forget to listen. Every line counts, especially the first one.
