As a casting director for twenty-three years, Holly Powell witnessed the casting world from three different points of view: As an independent casting director, as Head of Casting for a Studio, and as a Network Casting Executive. From this unique perspective, she formed Holly Powell Studios, with her mission being to demystify the audition process for actors. Through using her The 6 Audition Tools Method, actors are guided into adopting the mental focus of the athlete and learn to control sabotaging thoughts that can derail an audition. THE AUDITION BIBLE: Secrets Every Actor Needs To Know, originally written as a companion piece to Holly s audition workshops, covers not only audition techniques and tools but answers many common questions about audition protocol. Anecdotal audition stories exemplify what works and what doesn t during the casting process. Part 1: The Audition is a handbook for any actor auditioning for any venue, be it television, film, theater, a commercial or a webisode. The actor travels through waiting in the lobby, walking into the audition room, the audition itself, the people he encounters in the room, and finally exiting the audition room. Part 2: Auditioning For A Series-Regular Role guides the actor through the four steps it typically takes to book a series-regular role on a network television series: The Pre-Read with the Casting Director, The Callback for Producers, Reading for Studio Executives, and Testing at the Network. Even though the format in Part 2 is specifically geared toward auditioning for television, all actors in every medium will find invaluable information here that will apply to their individual audition circumstances. An audition is an audition is an audition."
