A little note inspired by some convos yesterday….
How cool is our industry! I don’t know of any other jobs where you can feel like family with your coworkers the way we do when we work on a project. There is so much LOVE that we have for the people we have worked with. I see actors LIGHT UP all the time talking about past colleagues, favorite directors, inspiring scene partners and so on.
SO really… everyone you come to find in auditions including the people you feel like you are “up against”— they are just one project away from being FAMILY.
What does that thought do for you?
if you bring your whole self into the room, continue to grow your craftand stay grounded and authentic through it all.
And you can do this like you are FIGHTING the other artists, or you can do it with LOVE AND RESPECT for the other artists.
WE are in control of how our industry feels. WE ARE the industry. If you feel like the audition scene has been feeling tough and beating you down, the guy or gal going in the room after you may be feeling that too. BUT WE HAVE THE POWER TO CHANGE THAT. We need to start radiating the love we want to feel in our audition scene to ONE ANOTHER.
What is meant for us is meant for us. How we pass the time is up to us.
Our world today showcases ways that we are at odds with one another, and living that way is exhausting. Let’s show other industries how it is done starting with each other.
There are 45,000+ New York actors that will receive this email. If you want to make our competitive audition scene a more wonderful place…
it’s going to start with you.
We got this.
