If you're young and talented and you dream about an acting career, working for Netflix might be your best choice. Prepare yourself and attend the auditions. You have nothing to lose and you will have a great experience that will help you for the rest of your life.
Netflix is becoming one of the biggest entertainment companies around the world. Millions of people are entertained every year with cult following Netflix’s original TV series and movies. There is a great range of ways in which you can share your talent with Netflix.
If you decide to go to an audition, here are some aspects you must know. First, some of the present Cast Members were asked to share their experience from the auditions. Their stories are featured often, and you can watch them to find out what you need. Also, if you have further questions, you can ask them via e-mail.
Once you get to the place where the audition is being held, a Cast Member will be there to help you with everything you need. It is very important to arrive on time because the company cares very much when it comes to punctuality. You need at least 15 minutes to complete your check-in and to prepare for the audition. Especially if you go to that location for the first time, make sure you plan your travel carefully.
The audition room might be quite intimidating, but you must relax and have fun. People from here were children too, so they know exactly how it feels to be at an audition. Be confident and do your best. A Netflix Casting Director will run the audition and he or she will give you some instructions to help you. The room setup will be according to the sort of audition that you are attending. Another essential aspect is that most Netflix auditions happen with the doors closed. Even though they know it's very important for children to be supported by family and friends, they consider that the audition is the place where kids must go on their own. Those who accompany you will have to wait in the waiting areas.
You may also be required to perform a monologue. A monologue is an uninterrupted speech directed towards another character. As an actor, you must have a monologue on hand for every situation. It's like your business card. Even if you are not required to have one prepared, you never know when you will be asked to recite one. Depending on the role you're auditioning for, it is best to have at least one comedic monologue and one dramatic monologue, well-rehearsed, always. To best choose the monologue that is right for your range, get in an acting class!
If you really want to become a successful actor or actress, and want to work for Netflix and other popular networks, keep your dream alive and develop the skills that will help you achieve that goal.
