• The first test of any audition – and how to make sure you pass it

• The importance of taking direction: Why you should just do it!

• When it’s okay to resist: Creative conversation

• Why you must never ask, ‘Can I do it again?’

• Letting your acting do the work: Living and engaging in the room

• ‘Thank you & Goodbye’ – Making a clean, slick exit

    Time keeping -I agree, turning up on time not just for auditions but all aspects of projects. By turning up early you have the chance to compose yourself and get into character. It’s also rude to be late, and like Brain and Joe have said it costs.
    Direction – As and actor you are there to deliver what the director wants… not what you want.
    Arguing with the director – again.. you are there to get the director what they want.
    Exit – Thank the director/s and remember to be given an audition is an opportunity.
    Good advice guys
