This year is unlike any other college audition season. Universities across the nation are already preparing for the school year on campus and bringing MORE students on campus isn't looking like it's a safe option.
If you are auditioning for BFA musical theatre and acting programs, you're already prepared to film your prescreens, but now you need to be prepared to do all of your auditions at home. What can you do to maximize your audition? Stand out? I hear students say all the time...."I'm better once I get in the room". Well now "the room where it happens" will be your home.
How to prepare for this season:
1. Find your audition filming space in your house. You may have to get creative and clear a space but definitely designate a space for audition filming.
-You can purchase backdrops if you need to brighten up your space.
-A ring light if you need more lighting
-I also recommend a tripod
Try to choose a space that has decent lighting and if it doesn't then create lighting with a ring light.
2. Set up time to film, when it's quiet
3. Know that everyone is doing this
4. You don't have to hire someone to film
5. Always do a test shot
Know that we're all going through this together and it will all be okay so breathe! :)
