2. What are some tips for doing a virtual audition?
By Eddie Kunz:
Starting during the height of the pandemic, virtual auditions, went from something that would be done on occasion, to the new normal. This has led many actors to question. What are some tips for sending in a virtual audition? Below we have outlined just a few things that you can keep in mind next time you were sending in a virtual audition.
1.Do several takes. The best part about virtual auditions is that you get more than one chance. There is no fear of making a mistake because if you do, you can just stop the video and start again. Be sure to do the best that you can, but then send in the one that you think is the best take. Relax and record!
2.Have a solid colored background. Make sure that your background does not distract from your performance having a solid color like white or black might be best. This will also make it look more professional overall. 
3.Use visual cue to help your memory. Whatever you are looking at behind the camera can help you with your monologue. If you use a visual cue as a reminder, then that will allow you to be put at ease about memorizing the monologue. Set up some things behind the camera that you can look at that will help you remember your monologue. This can ease the burden of having to memorize.
4.Be sure to film in an area with good acoustics. The way that you sound is important. Be sure that the audio quality of your audition is good, so that you can fully show what you are capable of to the directors. If you keep these tips in mind, and you do your best, you'll have done a virtual audition!
