What if you could listen to a casting team ... while they were reviewing your audition?
You'd learn a lot.
Imagine having this opportunity many times - each with a different casting team who has unique perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences?
Soon you could predict how casting teams will react to your auditions.
The point is, predicting how casting teams will react to your auditions is instrumental to your success.
And you can learn to do this - for free. Simply practice 'playing the role' of casting teams.
HERE'S HOW ...
Take this self-challenge:
Two times per week, review a fellow voice actor's recording. That's it.
This will be hard at first. But trust me; give feedback 10 times and:
Try it, do yourself the favor. It'll get easier, and your auditions will improve.
