Many of you feel like, hey it’s pilot season and everyone else seems to be getting a ton of auditions and I ain’t getting any. Something is wrong with me or my situation…
Yes, it’s slammin busy right now. I coach actors for their auditions so I see the swarm of pilots that are currently casting. I’m personally super busy keeping up with the season.
And, every pilot season, I get emails, messages, and posts about how actors feel left out of the audition season.
It’s what I’m going to start to nickname the Panic Season.
The comparison-pressure is just taking its root.
Actors want the opportunities that they see other actors getting.
I get it. As a sensitive artist who has dreams and goals, I get this way too!
This feeling of being left out is so real.
But here is the truth.
There isn’t one actor who is getting oodles and oodles of auditions; there are many actors getting only 1, 2 or maybe 3 auditions in the whole season.
Please, my actor friends, I want you to stop beating yourselves up.
From my bird’s eye view, it’s basically all spread around amongst many actors.
I’m not coaching the same actor several times a week, or even the month. When someone is busy, it’s typically only 2-3 times in the month that high profile auditions come up.
Yes, of course, there are a few actors who are already known by all the main casting offices and are getting more opportunities.
Yes, of course, there might be some age ranges that have more casting needs. Or, ethnicities. Or, “flavor of the times”. (I always recall when Ellen Degeneres broke out and everyone wanted a young or older etc “Ellen type.”)
Yes, of course, excellent representation yields more results. But even then, you could be with a top agency and still not experience a swarm of auditions.
It’s a funny little business with lots of quirks in it.
And one of them is the illusion that every actor is constantly auditioning for roles. In truth, absolute truth, each actor might really only have a few pivotal auditions in a season. Or, maybe only one.
And that’s just the quirkiness of the business. Nothing personal. It’s just what it feels like from a distance for actors – that everyone else is auditioning tons.
Meanwhile… to have some healthy balance and work the law of manifestation… let’s switch your energetic focus towards being inspired.
In the midst of the goal setting and pursuit of the auditions, it’s crucial to fuel your inspiration.
Nurture your inspiration to keep pushing for the opportunities and attracting it all to you.
That’s the realllll secret…..
It’s a funny thing, but so true. Keep focusing on the work of it all and the rest will come your way.
Now, have a beautiful day, and I send you all lots of manifestation energy.
