If your going to do an audition you go into the audition after absorbing what the client wants. There is no excuse today for not doing so. If your going to do an audition to voice and visual of a Cowboy store, or horses, go out to a stable, go to a rodeo, or just watch a video of a rodeo. The PRCA has tons of videos to watch. Doing up some audition on going towing, watch old videos of Wrecked from SpeedTV or Highway thru Hell, its been on long enough.
Or on bikes and the biker community? Michele Smith, of the old American Thunder from SpeedTV is a perfect example. She parlayed that so smooth, from introduction, to segments it was a pleasure
She made American Thunder rumble. The difference? This Michelle got down in the mud and wasn't affraid to get dirty. She researched the subject matter, dressed for the part and delivered.
If one is to audition and be cast, you need to know the subject and or product, or at least what the paying client is looking for. Talent agencies need to do their parts. They know what of their talent can do a project and who will not fit, these agencies like TMG and Lasting Impressions, Needs to give casting directors enough time to explore the abilities of the talent their auditioning. The list of other points is very long, but if talent wants to get booked they need to know what they are doing and who they're doing it for. With the Internet and Google as well as Bing , the online research is so easy. Every company of reality has at least a Facebook page, most too, are on sites like Google Business, and/or Yelp. One of the most important things though, is for talent to SHOW UP, on an audition. Don't sit there and tease someone, say your going to be there, then not be there, or not giving prior notice. Clients have business's to run, their time is valuable you wouldn't keep your Doctor waiting, so don't keep a client or producer waiting for you, just because you got the jitters all of a sudden on a project. Keep this idea in mind, its not Burger King, you get the gig the way the client wants it or you don't get the gig at all.
