If you are an actor, you have to audition – plain and simple but auditioning is anything but “plain and simple” for the amateur or professional actor. There are so many opportunities out there for actors but, unfortunately, they make mistakes in the audition room that cost them the job. In Helen McCready’s book, “Audition & Book It”, she uncovers everything an actor needs to know from the audition to booking the role and how not to make the common mistakes most actors tend to do.
From her years of being an actor to becoming a leading independent casting director, Helen has a compassion for what an actor goes through in the audition room and wrote this book to help the actor perfect their audition skills. You will learn to be not only extremely competent but also how to shake the “nerves” that actors get before any audition.
This book is up to date with what Hollywood casting directors expect from the actor. You will learn about having a winning headshot and resume, preparing for the audition, bringing energy into the room, props, pantomime, movement, monologues, improvisation and her “5 Elements of A Winning Audition” to help you nail the role. “Audition & Book It!” is a no-nonsense book written to heighten your odds at becoming a true working actor in the business. A must for any actor serious about working in Hollywood.
