Last week I was lucky enough to audition for a feature film, 'Felony', written by Joel Edgerton. The audition was run by Greg Apps and BOY DID I LEARN A LOT! Greg pretty much taught me to forget what I have learnt, and run purely on instincts. He did not care about the script - only the emotion. He wanted to see what 'character' I had created, rather than what I had prepared. It was an audition like no other, and I am very thankful for it. On top of this, he gave me a real wake up call which I really needed. I got to experience what a 'real' audition was as opposed to an extras audition for a commercial which I have done heaps of. Hopefully I will get a chance to work with him again. Thanks Greg!
ps. I will add that I was contacted directly by Greg and his assistant, and NOT through an agent. yes it is possible to do your own marketing so get cracking!
