The Audition Book

Overview

If you want to be a professional actor, or if you are one already, you have to audition - it's a fact of life for even the most successful performers. But auditions are not all alike. You can't use the same approach auditioning for a TV commercial that you would for a movie or a stage show. Moreover, there is a greater range of opportunities for employment than you may have ever auditioned for - in radio, voice-overs, corporate videos, and industrial films.

Overview

If you want to be a professional actor, or if you are one already, you have to audition - it's a fact of life for even the most successful performers. But auditions are not all alike. You can't use the same approach auditioning for a TV commercial that you would for a movie or a stage show. Moreover, there is a greater range of opportunities for employment than you may have ever auditioned for - in radio, voice-overs, corporate videos, and industrial films. In this newly revised edition of The Audition Book, Ed Hooks, an actor and former casting director, draws from his years of practical experience to show you how to prepare for an audition in each of these settings. He discusses a wide array of acting opportunities, including newly emergent ones in interactive media such as CD-ROM and the Internet.

As in his previous edition, Hooks addresses the important aspects of dealing with casting directors; finding and keeping an agent; and preparing effective headshots and resumes. The book is updated so that actors will know the latest essentials about union contracts, actors' pay scales, and even computerized and teleconference casting methods. A pep talk for performers, and much, much, more, The Audition Book will not only boost your chances of winning acting assignments, it will keep you "up-to-the-minute" in the ever-new business of show business.

How to master the art of auditioning--and avoid its pitfalls.
