Yeh, well me too...That used to happen to me a lot. I used to get very bad feedback from my agent after my acting auditions - it was very embarrassing...and my results?...yes, well...have a guess?
So, I decided to look for an answer - I had too - Thing was I knew the answer probably had something to do with me. I mean I was the person going into the room, right?
I discovered I needed to take a bit more control of my mind and body, I needed to learn how to breathe better - hang on - we do that naturally, right? Well, I wasn't, I was breathing in my chest - and this created loads of unnecessary tension - this meant that my mind and thinking was tight - and this is what caused my unhappiness and gave me bad results and tension!
So I started to look into how the mind worked, I read up on positive psychology...I read everything I could - I watched videos, went on courses, listened to tape recordings, everything I could get my hands on...anything to improve my auditions...and eventually I stumbled upon a weird little book...
It was all about how to use your imagination to improve results...I thought that's what actors do for a living!? I dream, imagine all day long, don't you? So I started applying some of these ideas and pretty soon - don't get me wrong it was NOT overnight, there was some work to do, and I did need to change things - my results improved. A lot.
I was blown away - I've used these skills in every audition since and as a result I have got acting work on “The Tudors”, “The Iron Lady”,(With Meryl Streep) “Hatfield’s and McCoys” (Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton) and “Da Vinci’s Demons” written and directed by David S Goyer (Batman trilogy, Superman - Man Of Steel.)
