February 23, 2007, Newsletter Issue #53: Casting Directors and Flexibility

Tip of the Week

During casting calls, you need to show casting directors that you are a flexible actor. They need to know that your skills can translate from the stage to the screen. They also need to see that your character creation skills are always at work. Even though you get up to a week of prep time for your sides, you still need to be able to show them that you can fully flesh out a character with minimal input. Realistically, you have very little time to accomplish this, but use the two minutes on camera to convince them of the great actor you will become.
