Movie Acting Auditions are tryouts for movies. You need to show your talent in the most convincing way, letting the casting director know that he can trust that role in your hands.
Becoming great at auditioning takes practice and experience. Auditions are very different from acting. It's almost like as second skill, and has different rules.
For many actors, auditions are a terrifying process, but the more you'll audition, the less terrifying it will be.
There are also many classes that teaches audition techniques and some can help you get the job.
Always make sure you have 2 or 3 monologues prepared (At least one comedic, one dramatic). You never know what the casting director is looking for, and many times he / she will ask you if you have a monologue ready.
If it's your first time auditioning, here are a few things you should know before you go.
Sometimes there will be no sides given before and you will need to do a Cold Reading. Even if they are sides given before, the casting director might ask you to read for another role that he / she may think you suit more for. In most cases you'll have just a few minutes to go over the Sides.
