So you know, other than the fact that I’m a ridiculous and sometimes embarrassing human being, that audition went well.
I have a feeling I won’t know how that went unless I get it, which is fine! I think it went okay – the character had changed since I last auditioned, I got to find out what the actual project is, etc etc.
I got through my recorded audition and my Skype audition as well (my laptop does not have a webcam, but I do apparently have a Skype account if you were wondering!). It was my first Skype audition and only my second recorded audition, which – blehhhh, I really hate recorded auditions but that could be because
- I hate watching my face
- I hate monologues/not having anyone to read off of
- I really don’t think I come across well on camera facewise (I FEEL LIKE THIS MAY BE A PROBLEM?)
- Since I can watch it back over I start analyzing and overanalyzing and wondering “well wait a minute maybe I can’t actually act at all?”
- related to that, if I’m not pleased with a recording I do it over and over until maybe it actually IS terrible but I can’t actually tell anymore?
- also, my face.
Anyway. (It’s amazing how quickly I can go from “wow look at me go! I’m doing things I’m afraid of even though I’m afraid!” to “wow I am a troll, why does anyone let me out of the house?”)
So this week, I have a singing lesson today and then an audition on Thursday. It’ll be my first audition with any kind of singing in…quite some time, actually, so Maestro has been kind enough to help me run my two cuts of sixteen bars into the ground. (The neighbors are confused, I’m sure.) Someday soon I should make a post (or gasp! a video!) about my new singing teacher and how much I am learning in and enjoying lessons nowadays!
Life’s pretty good here at Chez Acting Ingenue (well, Chez Muse and Maestro, unless this blog is my house?) and I can’t really ask for anything more.
Sending out love and encouragement and happiness to you all, since I seem to have an excess of it at the moment! ^^;;;
