Yeh, well me too...That used to happen to me a lot. I used to get such bad feedback from my agent after my acting auditions - it was embarrassing...and my results?...zero. So, I started to look for some kind of an answer - I had too - Trouble was I knew the answer probably was something to do with me. I mean I was the person going into the room, right?
So I started to look into my brain, into performance psychology...I read everything I could about the mind and body - 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 - I landed a role on the movie “Alexander” Directed by Oliver Stone, starring Colin Farrell and Angelina Jolie! (this did take time - but once I'd mastered a few basics - things snapped into place)
I was blown away - I've used these skills in every audition since and as a result I have landed 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.)
I believe actors give their best acting performances in auditions when they create positive expectations inside their minds - and to do that you just need to upgrade the software in your own mind.
