What's the "WOW" factor?
From Coach Jack Turnbull of the Actorsite Awesome Acting Club.
I've noticed in auditions, in classes and at workshops and other training is we have two different types of actors who participate. Other Casting Directors say the same thing.
1. THE "OK" AUDITIONER: Those actors who practice just enough to get through the audition. It's so obvious they aren't enjoying the process and haven't prepared!
They take this mentality into their auditions, and because of it, unless they are a PERFECT MATCH for what casting is looking for, they don't get the callback or booking.
With a stronger attitude and work ethic, they would be enjoying the fruits of their labor!
2. THE "WOW" FACTOR: The most successful kids/teens are those who take the material and work it as if THEY ALREADY HAVE THE JOB!
They practiced and prepared as if it's for the SUPER BOWL! Because it is, every audition has HIGH STAKES! They devour the material and love to practice it!
That's why they are the ones who turn out to be "LUCKY" in the Hollywood sweepstakes.
Much of the time, the "lucky" young actors have studied at the Actorsite Awesome Acting Club, where they get to choose from classes 5 days per week---Fantastic!
"Wow" factor actors take challenges seriously, just like the wide receiver in football takes it seriously....they work hard, learn their routes, and laugh a lot because they enjoy the game.
Each actor can enjoy the audition and have fun and ROCK THE ROOM...with a "WOW" factor attitude!
"WOW" FACTOR ACTORS AUDITION AS IF THEY ALREADY HAVE THE JOB!
At the Actorsite Awesome Acting Club, we encourage all actors to work ALL material, whether in classes, workshops or auditions, as if they've already booked the job! They'll have more fun, and they will feel free to bring their own SECRET SAUCE to the room!
