On Friday I auditioned for a short film at CAZT, which is a casting facility located on N Formosa Ave in West Hollywood.
I auditioned for the role of Judy in a film called “Lifers”. The film was described as a dark comedy.
Soon after signing in, I was welcomed into the audition room by the director, Mike Fitzgerald and the producer, Christian Parent. I asked a quick question about the sides and then we jumped right into the audition. The audition was a single take, on tape.
Thanks to Christian and Mike for the opportunity!
Wow! What a day. Today I had three auditions. Lucky me!
First I had a commercial audition at Ross Lacy Casting. Today’s product was Olive Garden. The attire: casual with a white button down shirt. I arrived at 200 S. La Brea and signed in for my audition. I read the sides and really liked the character. Good audition!
Next I drove over to CAZT to audition for a webisode called “Insatiable”, which was described as “Twilight meets Twin Peaks”. I auditioned for the role of Abby, a superficial, small town real estate agent with an agenda.
Lastly I had an audition at Big House Casting in Studio City for an indie film. I auditioned for the role of Carol, a sweet, pregnant wife. The only lovable character in a dysfunctional family.
Thanks to each Casting Director for the audition.
Today I had an audition for a short film called “Anything Can Happen”. I auditioned for the role of Nicole who is described as “a woman who is a fairly successful B list actress but is trying to transition into bigger projects/roles. Pretty, pretentious and snappy but also has a sweet, insecure side.”
I arrived for auditions at CAZT for my 11AM time slot. I received the sides prior to the audition, had made my character choices, and was ready for the audition. When it was my turn to audition I met with the Casting Director, Jessica Sherman, who gave me a warm welcome. I was given a couple of notes before I started the scene and then we started. The audition was just one take, but I felt good about my choices.
Today I had an audition for an indie feature film called “Dick Little”. I auditioned for the role of Amy.
I arrived for auditions at CAZT for my afternoon audition and picked up the sides, which were not available prior. I read over the material and it was so sweet. A fun little romantic comedy. When it was my turn, I received a very warm welcome from the Director. I read through the scene with the reader and I felt really good about it!
With the summer around the corner, things have really slowed down. However, today I had not one, but two auditions!
The first audition was for a SAG Low-Budget Feature Film called “The Disconnect”. I was called in for the role of Karen Nilson, a wife and mother who will “do anything to protect her child”. The role actually called for a woman in her 30s to early 40s. I’m in my 20s, so I decided to give it my best shot. I arrived at CAZT casting facility in Hollywood and there were two women scheduled in front of me, but neither were ready for their audition. So, I went in and gave a strong audition. I walked out feeling really great. It’s too bad that I’m a little young for this role!
The second audition was for a national commercial. My agent, Richie Reiner, sent me to Ocean Park Casting in Santa Monica, CA to audition for a Qwest Commercial. The attire: “Orange County Housewife”. This commercial spot is a funny one and it moved pretty fast. I felt pretty good about my audition.
Wow, this week has been wonderful! I have been auditioning for projects left and right. What a blessing!
First, KSR Models sent me out on a Print Audition for Mucinex. The audition was at Armstrong Casting and this is the second time Casting Director Yvonne Armstrong has invited me to a print audition. The wardrobe was casual. I arrived at the audition and scanned the room, 8 brunettes and I was the only blonde. As I waited, a couple more women arrived, one more blonde and the rest brunettes. Blonde is really out for commercial work this year, but I can’t let that worry me. I just have a do the best I can do and let it go after that.
Next stop was CAZT Casting Facility. Lucky for me, CAZT was only a 15 minute drive from Armstrong Casting (It doesn’t always work out this way, usually I have auditions on opposite ends of the city!). This was my first time auditioning at CAZT and there were 4 different projects casting at this facility. The project I was called in for was called “Pigeon Kicker”, produced by Jim Marnell. I was called in for the role of Ms. Sullivan, a psychiatrist, and was asked to wear glasses for the audition. Everyone was really friendly, and I felt good about my audition for “Pigeon Kicker”.
As I was getting ready to leave, I noticed an AFI project that I had submitted for was also auditioning at the CAZT facility. The project is called “Little Black Dress” and is about a cynic at a wedding who ends up meeting her match. I had been really interested in this project when I saw it on Actors Access and was instantly disappointed that I had not been called in to read for the role of Katy. So, I took a risk and stuck around for the audition anyways. Sides were available for the project, so I looked them over and waited for my name to be called. When it was my turn, I was honest with the director and producer, I told them I was at CAZT for another project, but was very interested in their project as well and then I asked if I could read for them. I knew it was a bit of a risk, and they could have said no, but they were really cool and told me I could audition.
I’m glad I stuck around and auditioned for “Little Black Dress”. Not only did I feel good about my read, but as I was leaving I bumped into a girl that I had worked in a Theme Park Entertainment Show with when I was in college! I haven’t talked to her in years and I didn’t even know that she was in LA. I look forward to catching up with her.
Overall, what a great day!
