  • mikemanero829:

    A slate is when the Actor States their name and what Agency they are with, for example:
    “Hi My Name is John Smith and I’m with the William Morris Agency.”

  • CaitlinsCrazyCanvas:

    Is it a bad thing if I am not nervous?

  • nilboo112:

    When you state your name & age

  • GamerEveryMinute:

    A slate is a flat clean surface.

  • SuperDanHat:

    The best advice I can give is to just relax in your audition. Yes, I know that’s not that easy, but consider this. If you do get the job, you did great. If you don’t get the job, it doesn’t mean you’re a bad actor, it simply means that maybe someone else was better for THAT part. Also, consider this. If they say no, what did you lose? Nothing really, because you didn’t have it in the first place. I’ve been a voice actor for years, and can’t tell you how many jobs I didn’t get.

  • mkgonzalez123:

  • Sarahberrycute123:

    when you say your name . your age . and your agency or agent representing you . then you turn to your left side . forward . and to your right side . the forward again while smiling so they can see all sides of you .

  • mydickmilk:

    also if you have an agent or not that is very important

  • QuidHD:

    I would be a terrible auditioner. I get so nervous when having to present things in front of groups of people.

  • mylittleboat3:

    Slating is basically introducing yourself. Lets say that I was at an audition and they asked me to slate I would say: “Hi my name is (Your first and last name, you can give them your middle name if you want), I am (blank) years old, and I am reading/auditioning for the role of (character’s name).”

  • yourenot:

    a slate is how you start off most auditions. You just look at the camera- smile- and say your name and agency. Though sometimes slates vary. If they ask you to slate your name and age instead make sure you do that. :)

  • disneyforever100:

    i have a question ..
    what is Slate ?

  • glamorousjuicy1:

    @mhart29 it doesnt need to be extremely professional my dad is an excellent photographer and i got an audition for a commercial.

  • GDGloomie:

    Not all the time, head shots are cheaper than $700, and all you need is experience, confidence, and personality!

  • KaraJayneee:

    lol, im sorry but it is really actully quite hard to become an actor.
    Unless your 110% for it.
    You also have to have money before you can make money. good head and body shots can cost up 2 $700 and more
    Not to mention the price of acting classes, and lots more. its expensive and its hard work
