Can you audition with no experience?

Many talented people, hungry for the camera and the stage, remain unknown. And there are those who succeed in modeling, cinema, and show business. Read the stories of Marilyn Monroe, Johnny Depp, and Matthew McConaughey, and you’ll be surprised they landed their first roles without acting experience. There is only one difference between achievers and losers: the first ones went to the audition. Whether you have experience or not, you can attend, for example, Open Castings Calls Philadelphia.

You will find opportunities if you like to act on stage, sing, or voice-over. And if you have a model appearance, you can definitely find interesting paid projects for yourself. Casting Calls are your doors to the world of show business, and only you can open them.

How to prepare for an audition?

So, you have chosen something from a casting site. What to do? First of all, don’t panic and prepare well. The following steps will increase your chances of success:

  • Learn as much as you can about the audition. Find information about the casting director, producer, and all decision-makers. Find out about their preferences. Make a plan for how you will conduct yourself at the audition.
  • Evaluate yourself and think about the role in which you can show your best features. Rehearse as much as you can until you feel confident.
  • If you have time, take acting classes (or vocals if your audition is singing/voicing). Training will give you confidence and knowledge. Feel like an actor.
  • At the audition, try to cope with the excitement and enjoy the process. Decision-makers will appreciate your ability to stay calm and manage your emotions.

What’s next?

You have taken the first step and won. If you are accepted, congratulations! If not, keep attending auditions. The biggest mistake of most people is to give up after the first failure. If you want to succeed in a creative profession, you must be proactive and take as many steps as necessary to win. And remember: each casting is your precious experience, which will surely turn into a great success.
