Audition Update is moving. Click here to learn more.

Hello Everyone,

You’ve heard us talking about it all summer, and we’re finally ready to show you what we’ve been working on. I’m proud to announce that AuditionUpdate.com is moving to its new home on the Backstage Community.

What are the benefits of this new location? It’s anonymous, it's mobile-friendly, it’s easier to police spam content and fake accounts, and best of all, it has collapsed threads! In addition, our developer team will be able to make changes, fix bugs, and implement new features much faster and easier on this new platform.

You’ll notice there’s a banner across the top of the screen here advertising the new location. If you click through that link, it will bring you to the registration screen where you can create your account and automatically receive the “Veteran” flair for being an Audition Update user. Even if you already have a Backstage account, clicking through the link will grant you the flair automatically so everyone will know you’ve been here a while and know what you’re talking about.

We’ll be decommissioning this forum slowly over the coming weeks, so you should save any threads or details that you want to reference later at your earliest convenience.

We know this will really help to improve things here at Audition Update, and we want to thank you - the community - for being here with us through the whole process.

– The Backstage Community Team

  • NAB- work session? 04/15/2018  1:41pm

    Can someone please share what to expect at a “work session” before a final callback ?

    Consider it a coaching to help you nail the material. They want to make sure you are really understanding important things to hit for your callback. Also will see how you work, your process. Do you take direction well. Do you listen. It’s a great opportunity.

    A work session is where the casting director gets you prepared for what the director/team wants/expects. I have been in where they literally block out a scene and have you hit the beats of the person you are replacing. Or where they help you find the intentions/actions the director is searching for. It depends on the team they are readying you for. Just be prepared to take whatever feedback or notes they have and really apply it whether you agree or not. Their objective is to help make them and you look good in front of the team. These sessions are sort of the unlocking to the door of the final steps. Be open to let them help and guide you. This is where they set you up for success.
