Tell Us About Your First Time…

ClaimFamers! It’s time to share and shine with your community. We want to hear about your very first audition. Did you nail it? Were you totally out of your league? Did you freeze up from nerves? It’s important to support and learn from one another. I can’t think of a better way to break the ice than telling us about your first time…

My first audition was for a “how to” video. I had no idea what to expect but thought I would give it a try. When I was called in to meet the casting director, he asked me to demonstrate different tasks through movement. I was completely out of my element. I am great at memorizing lines and public speaking but not so much at “choreography”. I was unprepared and embarrassed. Needless to say, I didn’t get the role. However, the experience got me over my fears and taught me to be prepared for anything! Now, I always practice my poses and block out scenes before any big audition.
