A couple of weeks ago, I auditioned for an independent film. My experience with the casting director and producers was completely positive. They were incredibly kind and complimentary to me. What amazed me is that they said they would get back to everyone who auditioned. This is not common. If you don’t hear back, that’s your answer. Well, my answer came around 10pm last night. It was a “no”. You never know though! These people could want to see me for something else.
To be honest, I am just starting out and was honored to be seen by anyone. It was also fun. No hard feelings. No regrets. I did my best, but ultimately wasn’t right for their project.
Truth is, this is going to happen a lot. All I can do is learn from it, get more experience and training, and tackle the next audition.
Perhaps the sweetest part of all this is the support of my family and friends. My poor pops has been texting me sometimes multiple times in a day to see if I heard anything. So sweet. I am completely ok, but it may be more than a daddy’s heart can handle.
Perhaps it is just my annoying optimism, but I don’t really feel horribly rejected. I am proud of myself. I know what I have to offer. Something will work out.
Let’s do this.
