ART OF AUDITIONING by Rob Decina
The Craft of Acting, the Business of Auditioning.
 
Five Time Emmy-Nominated Casting Director Reveals How Two Worlds Meet in Television .
 
Acting and auditioning are two different things. Plenty of well-trained and gifted actors do not audition well, losing roles to lesser actors who have mastered the audition process. Auditioners now have a powerful new resource at their disposal. Emmy-nominated casting director Rob Decina highlights the difference between the craft of acting and the business of auditioning and reveals how these two worlds meet in television in The Art of Auditioning: Techniques for Television.
 
“Can you be great at auditioning and be an interesting actor? Of course—that is what you should be striving for,” the author observes.
 
Using a step-by-step format, The Art of Auditioning shows actors how to empower themselves as they begin auditioning for television and mapping a career. Readers will gain a better understanding of the audition process and learn effective preparation techniques, including:
 
Setting realistic goals
Asking the right questions
Making specific acting choices
Finding beats and beat changes
Dictating pace
Establishing an objective
Finding a sense of urgency
Using spontaneity
Becoming a thinking and feeling actor
The Art of Auditioning also offers interviews with top casting directors, talent agents, and actors, advice on headshots and resumes, information about under-five and background work on daytime TV, and much more. No actor who is serious about working on television can afford to be without this book.
