Audition for a Short Film

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!

Three Auditions on Thursday

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.

Film 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.

Film Audition

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!

Two Auditions on Wednesday!

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.

Auditions, Auditions, Auditions!

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!
