How To Audition Like A Pro!

Are you ready to play the Audition Game…and win?

Pilot Season is here, and the auditions are rolling in.

It’s time to bring your A-game into the audition room.  When you get to a certain level of auditioning, everyone is a good actor.

So how do you stand out?

In today’s video my mentor and Acting Pros founder, Wendy Davis, incorporates the first three steps of The Audition Game. Watch the before and after to see the incredible difference just a few steps of the Audition Game can make in your work!

What is The Audition Game?

A step-by-step technique that turns your auditions from a monumental event into a game you can play and win.  The Audition Game gives you a protocol to create powerful auditions, even when you’re short on time.


What Steps Did Wendy Use in this Audition?

Step 1

Scene Shift:

  • The direction in which the story moves for your character.
  • All scenes shift.


Step 2

Moment of Decision:

A moment where your character weighs his/her options (Should I do this… or not).  Your character has to make a decision.

Moment of Discovery:

A moment in a scene when your character has been provided new information by another character, the situation, or a self discovery.


Step 3

Create a Strong Beginning/Ending:

Bookend the scene to make yourself stand out.
Use simple physical movement to create the moment before (which is in alignment with the scene).
Fully live out the last moment with a strong opinion and/or physical action.

  1. That’s a good idea to make sure that your character makes a hard decision. I feel like that would be a common situation for characters to be in, so it would be good to show that you could do well at it. I should take a look into doing something like that if I decide to start auditioning.
