If You Want To Lose Your In-Person
Voice Over Auditions, Here's How ...

Five things to never do at an in-person voice over audition:
Gossip is like a photocopy. (Remember photocopies?) Repetition after repetition makes the best image distort until it's unrecognizable. That thing you said "as a joke”? Yeah…
2. Be Distracted
Be present for the opportunity in front of you - not in the headspace of the next thing on your agenda.
3. Warm Up in the Booth
Hit the door ready to go. Not almost ready to go.
If you can't do Mid-Western or Northern Californian or something else, decline the opportunity graciously and move on. That will get you respect rather than wasting someone's time.
5. Check Out
"Well, I can’t do this ... I’m not gonna bother trying … There’s always another … This isn’t why I became an actor … I don’t really care about this…”
Wanna know who works? People who care.
