I thought my audition was good, but the CD didn't seem to be feeling me. She didn't give me any adjustments, it was just one take per scene. I was a bit irritated with that because I had just been given the sides the night before and had a morning audition. I didn't even get a script so it was difficult to understand the context of some of the scenes.
There were 16 pages of sides but we were told to prepare 3 scenes, which ended up being like 8 or 9 pages. I just felt that with such a short amount to time to prepare, it would have been nice to have at least been given a redirect if what I did initially wasn't what she was going for. All I got was the dreaded, "Okay, thank you!" in the end.
I was like:
Anyhoo! A couple days ago, I had a pre-read for a lead in a film that is really, really cool. Another badass character and a great premise. Again, I feel good, and I think the CD liked me, but we all know that doesn't mean shit. Since it was a pre-read, I hope that your girl at least gets a callback!! Although, I'm a bit young for this character. Either way, it was my first time in for this office so I think I at least impressed them enough to get brought in for something else down the line.
And yesterday, I had another pre-read for a role on a new straight to series show. I'm not sure the billing level for this character, but my manager suspects that it's being left open to be a heavily recurring or series regular role. This character is really sad and has had a very difficult life. One of the scenes was a bit more emotionally taxing, which is like catnip for me, haha. I love the tearjerker stuff so I was right in my comfort zone with this one. I felt really, really good about this audition today, so like all of the others, I will hold out hope, at least for a day or two before I have to force myself to move on.
Keep your fingers crossed for me!
