From the Author:

The phone rings, an email arrives, your smart phone vi­brates. It's your agent. A project is being cast and there's a part in it that might be right for you. They're expecting you at the casting office tomorrow. You don't have a whole lot of time, but that's okay. Opportunity has just come knocking at your front door and you know you have the chops to open it. After all, that's what you do... you're an actor. This is your chance to act.

Perhaps you intend to self-submit a video of yourself doing an audition for a role you saw posted online. This happens more and more often these days. You are taking control of your destiny as an artist.

In any case, the "sides" either arrive or you download them. Now you've got a few pages of script in hand along with a short description of the character and the scene: a name, a place, and a few other pertinent facts. It's time to put your training and talent and energy to good use. Your task is to transform those words on the page into a memorable living and breathing human being.
What's the first thought that goes through your mind? Is it negative or positive?

"Boy, I really want to book this one. I could use the money from
this job."

"I wonder who I'm up against. I hope they like me. I thought my last audition was solid; but I never heard anything... I don't want that
to happen again."

"Wahoo! It's playtime. I can't wait! Who do I get to be?"


"Let's get down to business."
