View Full Version : Overwhelming Auditions!
10-12-2005, 09:16 PM
Sometimes it gets a bit overwhelming with all the auditions coming in everyday here in the VAA! NGVAC, you can manage them within a day, same w/ the VAB, but there's always so MANY coming in every day here! It's hard to keep up! And if you're like me, and have a broken computer at home while you have to use comp lab comps w/o a mic, it's hard hearing that you need to send in audition lines! T.T (Ha, even tho you just adore them otherwise). Ever feel like that?
Hmm... or is it just easier because you go for exactly what you know you can or cannot do...? And just don't audition or anything?
Ha, I'm a "no0b", so I gotta build up that resumé!:luv

*hugs* Just find what interests you the most and audition for that first, also if you see something with a deadline far away then you know you've got some time. If there's no deadline and you're worried they might cast early, it's worth a shot to let the producer know you'll be sending later that day and to please wait for your auditions before casting that part ^^;

I just audition when Im in a mood XD. Be wary of some of the dissapearing producers who cancel their RPS. BAH TO Youuu I say! You know who you are '.- cancelled RPs can wear you out after a while.

I have been very lucky with the vast majority of the projects I've gone in for. Be weary of biting off more than you can chew however. You may audition for lots of projects but there is a certain workload attached with each one. Makes sure that your keyboard isn't writing cheques that your voice (or your lifestyle) can't cash. :)

Aww. Hee hee ^.^ I'm loved. That's very good advice, Kagome... asking to not cast until you can get some auds in. And the whole biting off more than you can chew thing. Oh so true, yes yes. I do believe I've already come up with some stuffs like that, yes yes? Group hug! *hugs* ^.^!!!!!

Julie: Why would you audition for something if you have a broken comp? *scratches head* How do you plan on recording your lines if you get cast? And more importantly, how do you plan to record for my halloween challenge...
Gwen: How come you're a fangirl of Shammy... and not the Frogs? I mean, after all we've been thru, all we've shared. Don't tell me that glomp in Vancouver didn't mean anything to you!?!

Holy Zen!! another Utahnian!!
I find that auditioning for everything can be pointless, as you can usually tell when a project is going to die by the attitude/reputation of the producer. but getting to many roles can be rediculous as well, like Clym said it's all about your scheduel and what you can do in the time you have, so its best to structure around that.
I on the other hand am somewhat of an elitest when it comes to auditioning, first off I usually cast a project aside if I don't like the concept, but I would never ever recommend letting personal relations get in the way. if you have a grudge with a producer never let that get in the way of an audition, as it's up to the producer to cast, and even if you aren't on the best terms you still might get the part because of a case of talent/necessity.
just a small bit of advice from the only Utahn (that I know of) to stay a member of this amazing community for over a year.

Oh...my...gosh... @___@;; I always feel like this. I get scared to record in front of anyone, so I always have to wait for the house to be empty, so I can record. But how often does that happen? What, once a week for an hour or two? And I'm taking at least a good 20 minutes trying to get a good recording for one stupid line @_@;; Okay, I'll stop ranting ^^;; But, yeah... There's always so many new auditions coming up, and then I really want to audition, but they close before I get a chance to. It kinda makes me mad XD

Heh, its kinda the opposite in my house, I'm usually the one doing the scarring when I'm recording (people knock on the door and are like 'my god, are you all right?').
I don't audition very often, but I do like holding auditions. Its amazing when all the voices you hear just kinda fall into place with the characters you have in your head.
