Hundreds or even thousands of people audition just to play a part in a movie or show. One good example is American Idol that went across the country just to choose 24 finalists that will begin their season’s show. Talent and experience played a part for those who made it and this is the same for those who decide to pursue an acting career.
Everyone knows that your big break in the entertainment industry begins with the audition. There are many held in different parts of the country and if you are a beginner with no training, you won’t do that well and chances are, you will just make a big fool of yourself.
Just think, how many times did you laugh when someone who tried to be the next American Idol wore a hideous costume or sang out of tune? It may not be funny if you were the one in front of the camera but then again, that is what happens when you go in unprepared.
This is why people who want to become aspiring actors and actresses must enroll in acting classes. They also get themselves involve in school plays or small productions because the experience they get here will be very useful when they decide to break out and let the world know who they are.
After attending a few classes and workshops, this is the time you need to take a few headshots and prepare your portfolio. When you go to an audition, this is what the casting director will be looking at as well as judging your performance.
