i am a professional auditioner

i have come to realize over the years that i am a professional auditioner. and even more so, i have realized that acting is all about auditioning and auditioning is all about being a product… one that is to be refined, packaged and marketed expertly. auditioning begins with ‘type’, that translates into how i look and whether or not i fit the role… am i tall enough? too tall? do i need to be more blonde? Brunette? am i skinny enough? have i worked out enough? can i be sexy? can i be nerdy? can i be french? am i too young? too old? do i look like i could be the daughter of the ‘mom’ that was already cast? ugh. it is a miracle that i don’t have a personality disorder.

being an actor is like begging to be back on recess where you are rarely picked to play wall-ball or called over during red-rover (or was that just me???) i have a love/hate relationship with the game of auditioning, it’s recess torture for adults and can be very disappointing at times, yet other times, it is the most rewarding experience imaginable. in the end i have come to realize that fitting the ‘type’ of a role gets you an audition, but it’s talent that gets you the callback. if i get a callback i am doing my job right… this is how i stay sane and positive. it is the key to my auditioning and acting happiness!

  1. hello my darling ~ I think that this world of acting, auditioning, performing, and trying to be the ‘best’ can get so exhausting! That’s why we have to slow down sometimes and say “hey, I’m a talented, smart individual who does SO much more than acting…but that’s one facet to ME!” 🙂 You have so much to give this world, and you are CAMILLE! Not just some pretty face/actor/package/product. You know how to play the game, and you eventually will be SO successful you won’t know what to do with yourself! But until then, I think you should just enjoy the simple little things in life! I know you don’t take things for granted, and I know you’re very thankful for all the blessings in your life… but sometimes we lose sight of them, even though they are right in front of us! That’s just my like 2 cents … I am so proud of you, and you’re a success no matter what, Cami! ❤

    • thank you my dear friend! i always love your advice 🙂 you are right, taking time to enjoy everything that is in front of me is so very important… i need to stop and smell the roses more often.
