Hi Tony!
Most people don’t even take the time to tell a person how to reach their goal. I want to thank you for everything and for responding to my messages. Sometimes I just test people to see if they really care about my career and you do. You can continue to send me some tips on how I can accomplish my goals, because you inspire me a lot. Thank you for caring.

Movie Auditions For Teens:
Where To Find Them
How To Get The Job!

If you are a young person looking for movie auditions for teens or who is looking to get their film acting career off and running it is a good idea to get as much experience as possible auditioning. Auditioning is a skill in itself. Treat every audition as a new opportunity to show casting directors what you are capable of and don’t let the rejections get you down- learn from them and apply those lessons to your next audition. Remember if this is what you want to do it should be exciting and enjoyable. To make sure you have the best possible chance at not only getting movie auditions for teens, but also getting a callback try and apply the following to your audition technique:

  1. Give yourself plenty of time to get to your acting audition, having to rush to make it on time will only make you more stressed out and if the worst happens (that you are late) you will look very unprofessional. Arriving ahead of time means you can get settled and be in a nice relaxed state to go in and perform. Don’t let other people in the waiting room make you lose your confidence or distract you, just focus on what you are going to do!
  2. When you go in and perform for the casting director listen and do exactly as you are told- yes, even if you only get a couple of lines into your piece. Don’t apologize for what you did, or explain how it could be better. They often have so little time and so many people to see that they may be very direct or brash with you but this is not necessarily an indication of what they think of you or your ability. Stay positive and polite and always thank them for their time
  3. Always take your resume and an up-to-date headshot with you to every audition
  4. Practice introducing yourself (let your personality show through), practice reading out loud (in case you are asked to do a cold read at an audition) and most of all practice your best monologues as much as you can. Practice really does make perfect!

If you don’t have an agent then it’s up to you to keep up to date with the latest opportunities to get movie auditions for teens. You should get a subscription to your local trade paper (if you are in Los Angeles or New York you should buy a copy of Backstage every week) and check out these websites as they are updated regularly with the latest movie auditions. Some of these sites even allow you to sign up for a weekly free newsletter that will give you the latest updates straight to your inbox.

The sites here listed below SAY they have movie auditions for teens. Whenever leaving your personal contact information, PLEASE be careful and keep your parents involved at all times. There are a lot of creeps out there. As a matter of fact I did some research into websites offering auditions for teens and I found some pretty bad people. So if it doesn't feel right for you to leave them your personal information, then DON'T DO IT!

I believe the best three websites are:

Actors Access: http://actorsaccess.com

Casting Network: http://home.lacasting.com

Star Now http://www.starnow.com

Then there are these sites:

http://www.auditions1.com/

http://www.auditionsforteens.com/

http://www.exploretalent.com

You may also want to consider doing some work as an extra, it’s a great way to get experience in a professional environment and some productions actually offer payment! Check out-

Finally remember you should never have to pay anyone any money to audition for them and always ask your parent or guardian’s permission to audition for a film project.

Increase your chances of getting lots of movie auditions for teens and of having a lasting acting career by doing the right things.
