Welcome to my very first blog entry at Master Your Audition! Woohoo!
I’m excited about sharing with you guys, actors from all over the world, the techniques that will empower you to give GREAT auditions.
I’m learned SO MUCH being a working actor over the past 20 (wow, that’s a lot of years!) and even more from being an acting teacher and coach for over 15 years!
I feel that auditioning well is about the three C’s, CRAFT, CONFIDENCE and CONTRIBUTION. I remember coaching many of my best students for auditions, either in person or over the phone…before I started to skype coaching. Even though I knew they were ready and I helped them make some effective choices and analyze their audition scenes, I could sense the fear in their voice and KNEW that they wouldn’t get the part or a call back. That’s when I started to realize that you’re got to also have confidence and a mindset of contribution and that that is just as important as your craft if you want to get cast. So I’m looking forward to helping you become better actors and more confident actors.
I’m also looking forward to being able to host a worldwide community of actors and create a forum for you to support and help each other. This blog will provide you with a fun, open and hopefully insightful forum to share your own experiences with each other and TOGETHER we can help each other succeed on all levels!
So here’s to you and our beginning this exciting journey together!
All the best and blessings, Benson
