Not only is finding auditions hard, but landing them is even harder. Here are some tips for models just starting out.
If you want to be a model, you should know how to land an audition, but many don't. The casting process involves preparation. At an open call, may be provided with a casting brief, which is very important and details what to expect. You will also be asked to wear the appropriate attire. The audition process will vary from agency to agency, but the following tips will help you land an audition.
Always arrive early to your audition. Usually casting directors are busy people who do not want to waste their time on an unsuitable model or actor. Therefore, it is important to be on time, at least 15 minutes early. Dress neatly and professionally without logos.
Always dress appropriately for the audition. You should wear basic clothes as the model scout is essentially only looking at your face.
The casting director will ask you for basic information, such as your age and your height. You should be confident and likable in your appearance, but avoid being too cocky or over-confident (it's a turn off, especially if you are new and have no experience!).
When you attend an audition, be prepared to introduce yourself. You should know your lines and portray the character you are playing. You should be relaxed and practice moving from one pose to another. The best way to be charming is to be friendly and pleasant. You should also be on time, as arriving late will make an unfavorable impression. Finally, dress properly for the audition. It is not unusual to be asked to try on a few pieces of clothing or to walk the runway.
Once you've landed an audition, the next step is to make contacts. Having contacts will help you get more work. Model Boot Camps or schools are so helpful. it is vital to build contacts with other models and agencies. You should also be prepared for the interview by arriving 10 minutes early. This way, the casting director can see your best side and choose the right outfits for you.
