3 Quick Tips on Practicing Your Craft!

If it’s Tuesday, then it must be time for some quick tips… welcome to another #QuickTipsTuesday!
OK, so to the average observer, modeling and acting may seem like it doesn’t require much prep work, but that’s not true! Acting and modeling can require a significant amount of prep work, and today we’re giving tips on how to prep for a successful audition or casting!

  1. The mirror is your friend!
    Practice everything in the mirror. If the commercial has copy, tape it to the side of the mirror and practice reading it, while going back and forth between the copy and the mirror. The mirror will stand in for the camera.
  2. The mirror is your friend, Part 2!
    Some commercials have no copy or may be a print-only job. For these, spend some time looking at yourself in the mirror and connect your emotions with your facial expressions. This will help you to be more in touch with how you want to look during the casting!
  3. Flex the muscles
    A wise person once said, “acting is a muscle which must be kept in shape through endless practice”. Flex those muscles: practice smiling so big that it reaches your eyes, practice copy whenever you can, and practice moving with purpose and intention.

Follow these tips and you’ll be on your way to a successful casting and booking the job!
That’s it for this Tuesday…stay tuned until next week for more quick tips!
