Acting Tips by Casting Director, Danielle Eskinazi

Casting Director Danielle Eskinazi shares the top five mistakes she sees actors make in auditions.
1. Material. Never assume the copy will be easy or unsubstantial enough for you to “wing it” or cold read at the audition. It shows the casting director that you are not taking the audition seriously, and we would rather have given the appointment to someone else who wanted the job more than you.
2. Punctuality. Never arrive late or assume there is a “window” for you to fit into, unless your agent has instructed you otherwise. Scheduling auditions involves a very complex grid of variables, and it’s important to be respectful of that. Arriving late – flustered and unfocused – will never land you the job.
3. Wardrobe. “My agent just called me about the audition an hour ago, so I’m sorry for the way I’m dressed.” NO. You are a commercial actor, and you should expect last-minute auditions. Keep a bag in the trunk of your car with several wardrobe choices suited to the types of roles for which you are most commonly called. For example: casual lifestyle, fitness, corporate, or even a bathrobe. If you don’t have exactly what is called for (i.e. a white physician lab coat), create the essence with an oversized white button down shirt.
4. Headshot and resume. Don’t assume that you don’t need hard copies just because you’re auditioning for a commercial. Last week, I cast a commercial for a feature film director. You never know when you’ll be asked for materials, so you should always have them with you.
5. Over-preparation. Do not over-rehearse your dialogue. Yes, of course, you should be prepared and make strong choices with the material. However, you must not be so attached to your choices that you can’t take direction in the room. In my workshops, I teach the importance of improv training specifically for this reason. 
Eye contact. Personally, I feel an actor should never make eye-contact while delivering sides. It feels awkward and itʼs the quickest way to get us to look away from you while you are acting. Your safest bet is to look into the camera lens, unless we tell you otherwise.
Avoid these common mistakes and you will be more confident walking into the audition. Now, go get the job!

#OSGVITILIGODAY - Celebrating World Vetiligo Day

Lagos, Nigeria - World Vitiligo Day is an annual event specially dedicated to people with Vetiligo on June 25th. The global event is to create awareness about the skin condition.
Vetiligo is continual skin problem that produces white depigmentation patches that develop and enlarge only in certain sections of the skin. The white patches appear because the person has little or no skin cells.
Though, it is impossible to predict how much skin can be affected by Vitiligo and it is not life threatening.
The reason why Olori Supernal created this online campaign is to create awareness on Vitiligo and also educate people about the skin condition using social media.
The model for the campaign - Temilola Omoobajesu shared her message to encourage other people with Vitiligo to come out. In her words, she said 'Don't let anybody's opinion of beauty be your idea of what beauty should be. You need to acceptant celebrate yourself before people will accept you. There is no need to be perfect to inspire people, let people get inspired by how you deal with your imperfections' she said.
Join other people around the world with Vitiligo to share your story here: http://www.olorisupergal.com/vitiligoday
The online campaign was created by Ajibade Oluwatosin, Founder of http://olorisupergal.com/
