    Thanks so much for the info on auditions. At 63, I have re-started my career, and so far have had several “close calls” for principal roles in TV and film. So far only booked one day player (only one line) in a major film. But there were several hundred people competing for that one line, so it was a win for me nevertheless. But the main problem for me is that I have nothing on a reel, and if you tell an agent that you had three call backs and a producer’s session for a major TV show, and that it ended up being between you and the other actress who booked it, they are still not interested. Any advice? Should I have a professionally taped scene or monologue on my website to show my work? Will they bother to watch it?

      Congratulations on your booking. That is wonderful. I would not suggest you shoot a monologue or a scene for a reel. People really want to see you interacting with another actor in an actual project. Maybe you could start looking into student films and use the footage for your reel.
      Best wishes.

      Shooting monologues normally are not good for a reel. People want to see you on a project. Try booking some student films.That will be a great way to help build your resume and get clips for your new reel.

    Thanks. Makes me feel a little better! Just want to book now!

  3. This made me smile! Love the bow tie:-) Thanks Aaron for taking the time to do these videos. I had a Casting Director tell me once that when you are auditioning you ARE working and are part of the project! You reminded me of that, thanks again!

      Thank you so much Dawn. Yes, the bow tie was perfect for the audition
      I just recorded. I like the comment you received from the casting director.

      I hope we get a chance to work together in the near future.

      Dawn, did you happen to see the information about Saturday’s online
      workshop about dealing with nervousness?

      I will send out another note to you soon.
      Thanks again for the kind words.
      Aaron
