11 Acting and Modeling Audition Tips

The following article concludes the top 11 Audition Tips to ensure that you show good performance and body language. Make sure that all the preparation you do for a Audition isnít in worthless. Your body language is key to Modeling and Acting Audition success.

The top 10 ways to improve your Acting and Modeling auditions when you go to a new Production house or Ad Agency are as follows:

1) Don't refer anyone as Uncle or Aunty
Mumbai film and Advertising industry people take this as a insult, and nobody wants and unwanted relative, be professional use the best word "Sir" or "Madam" or add "ji" with there name, this brings more respect.

2) Make Good Eye Contact
Make good, strong eye contact. The director on audition may think that because youíre unable to do this, you either have something to hide or you may not have the conviction of your beliefs. If youíre struggling to concentrate when looking straight into someoneís eyes, then try looking in-between their eyes. They wonít be able to tell that you arenít looking straight into their eyes, but youíll find it easier to maintain focus. Try it with a friend first to see what I mean.

3) Keep Smiling
You need to practice a strong, sincere, smile. A good smile has the power to say, ďIím a happy, confident person and Iíd love to work hereĒ. Try practicing smiling in a mirror. Practice a smile that puts people at ease. Itís just as much your responsibility to ensure that there is a relaxed atmosphere during the interview.

4) Body Language
Again, try practicing this with a friend first. Make sure that your legs are slightly apart. Place your hands apart, on your thighs is good. Open body language is even more important during the audition. It demonstrates that you are receptive to the question and actively listening. Remember when you practice your body language with a friend to take a note of what to do with each part of your body. Unless you do that Ė and remember Ė youíre leaving it to chance that your body language come across well at your Acting and Modeling audition.

5) Donít be too relaxed
Itís easy to appear as if you relax too much. This is especially prevalent if youíre asked to sit in a large sofa seat. Try not to appear too relaxed. Not sitting right back in the seat is a good idea. If you sit forward, it makes you look more attentive and more interested. Some people relax because theyíre not very interested. Other people relax because they have bad body language.

6) Donít be too Alert
If youíre too alert then you wonít appear too relaxed. If an experienced director is auditioning you then they might put this down to stage fright. They might just judge you on what youíre saying rather than how uptight you appear. However, They could leave the audition with a feeling that you werenít as good as the other person simply because you were too erect. Try to relaxÖ but not too much!

7) Sleep well before Acting and Modeling Audition
Itís all very well having fresh look at your acting audition, but if your eyes arenít looking bright and interested then youíre making life difficult for yourself! Make sure that you have a good nightís sleep before your acting audition. Remember Ė this is a very important day Ė you need to look your best and have no bags under your eyes!

8) pay attention
Itís important to be positive at your modeling audition. You need to demonstrate that youíre actively taking part in the audition. When your director is telling you about the role and script, make sure that you listen. This shows that you are listening and are interested in what they are saying. It shows that your are engaged in the discussion process and want to be part of the Production or movie.

9) Breathe deeply
One of the best ways to relax before an important audition is to breath deeply. If you breathe deeply, not only are you relaxing by slowing your rapid, nervous heartbeat, youíre also ensuring that your brain has as much oxygen as possible. This means that youíll be able to think clearly at your audition and be able to respond to difficult questioning more rapidly. Breathing deeply before an audition will provide you with the effective combination of being relaxed and alert at the same time.

10) Accept an offer of a glass of water
You may not feel like a glass of water, but taking a sip from a glass of water can have a calming effect on your audition performance. It can give you an opportunity to collect your thoughts while refreshing you. It will also give you a chance to get used to the surroundings. This will also give youíre the opportunity to gather your thoughts and decide upon any amendments to your acting and modeling strategy as well as reviewing your prepared responses to questions.

11) Style your handshake
So many people havenít got the right professional handshake. Remember that this is part of the first and last impression that you leave at the Audition. If you have a weak, limp handshake then this tells the director that you may not have the ability to deal with confrontation. On the other hand, if your handshake is too strong, then you may not be a good listener. You may be quite confident about controlling a situation, but you may be less likely to be democratic in approach.

Practice is the key. If youíre able to perform with good body language, youíll find it much more easier to communicate because youíll be speaking the same silent body language. This will put you streets ahead of the competition in the race for your dream role.
