I just got an email from Big Fish about a winning audition. I remember this audition because they put the call out twice and I recorded it twice. I didn’t win the gig and as I always do, I listened to the winning audition to see what I can learn. It was great as expected, but what really stood out was how much the winner improvised.
The spot was already humorous and some of the things the talent threw in made it even funnier. As well, throwing in bits helped make the written words his own. I can’t help but think that this small bit of improv sealed the deal by impressing the clients and helping make his performance better.
So how much do you improvise in your auditions?
