Back Stage, April 10th – In the Advice section, Ask A Professional, the article is entitled, Be Intentional at Auditions, by Constance Tillotson. Before walking into any important room you must know what you want. You are walking in with your own personal worth. In a casting room, it is never about what you say that books the job. It’s about how those in the room feel once you have left it. If you are doing your job correctly, a part of the people sitting in the room will feel like the other character. Your energy and performance should disturb their molecules. And that is what they will remember. Understanding the wide range of acting techniques is imperative. A broad knowledge of classic and contemporary styles allows the actor a myriad of tools to excavate his or her own truth. There is no right or wrong in acting. It is a process that reveals truth.
Also in the Back Stage online edition, April 2012 – Back Stage Seeking New Face of Actorfest, By Daniel Lehman. Back Stage is seeking talent for its “Become the Face of Actorfest Philly” contest.
