By the time reality TV casting is announced, the image of the ideal applicant is clearly mapped out. By subscribing to Audition Now, you will get details of all the reality TV auditions on offer - but only you can decide whether applying would be a waste of time or not.
Reality TV casting calls start with an audition tape – this is the toughest part, as 90% end up being binned on first viewing. This is why, at Audition Now, we teach you everything you need to know about how to make great reality TV casting videos.
Briefly, the video should be no more than 3 minutes long, simply made (no clever graphics or special effects - it’s a turn off for TV execs) and be sent clearly labelled, enclosed with full contact details and concise notes about yourself (age plus any specific details asked for). Make sure lighting, sound levels etc are spot on, and to view and edit carefully. There’s an art to creating videos, so make sure yours ticks all the right boxes.
Successful video applicants will be invited to reality TV auditions, and this is where you have to start taking risks. You have just one minute to make an impression during your initial interview, during which you must sell your persona to the TV company – so make it big!
Reality TV casting is all about pigeonholing yourself into a niche. You are much more likely to get picked in reality TV casting calls if you really stand out. So even if you’re not the zany sophisticate in real life – if it’s what they need, bring it on!
