Question by /MJ <3: What are you required to do in a short film audition?
Well I’m auditioning for a short film (it’s my first time) so I’m not quite sure what is expected and what I’ll be asked to do.
So far the only information I have received regarding the audition is the fact that it will only take about 10 minutes.
If this helps, the film is about a friendship with an autistic boy, and a girl (who I’d be playing) that becomes a powerful force for self-discovery for Joe, another boy.
Does that give any clues? Will I have to be emotional in the audition because it sounds like an emotional film? What do you think I will be asked to do?
Thanks. All help and tips are appreciated.

The answers to this question are as many and as varied as there are directors for short film projects. No two of them are going to be quite alike. I know that’s not much help, but I can’t give you more than the truth. Just go in, be confident, don’t be afraid to ask questions about the character, and give it the best you can muster in such an ambiguous circumstance.
