Pilot Season is the busiest time of the year for actors, casting directors and directors. Writers from around the world will pitch their ideas to film/TV companies, the companies will either pick it up or not. If they do then they will give the pilot to the casting director and then the casting director casts, therefore making up the auditions for pilot season. You can have from 1 audition a week to 2 or 3 in one day. There is no specific number on how many auditions you will get. It is very nerve-wracking during your first pilot season but once you get the hang of it then it becomes exciting. It starts off by you getting the script and learning the lines inside and out. Then you can go to an acting coach so they can bend you into the right shape for the role…not literally. After that you want to arrive at your audition 30 minutes early just to be safe. You don’t want to go inside to the audition outside of your given time slot because the casting directors might be on lunch or there might be other people before you. It is also thought of as bad form, they actually note down when you arrives and whether you pushed in ahead of other people. You want to make sure you have a highlighted script with notes written on it from your coach and a headshot and resume. If you don’t have anything on your resume just make sure you have a headshot. Sometimes they will ask you not to bring a headshot but have one in a bag just in case. Make sure you are happy, bright and that you stand out so that they will remember you. If they ask you to do your scene(s) again but in a different way you have to forget about what your coach said and act the scene as if this was your first time doing it and that was the only direction you have ever been given. Keep up the new direction throughout all of your scenes unless they tell you otherwise.
