Editorial Reviews


"Those who read this book will find that there is much to learn from Tim Phillips. Read it. Digest it. You'll be very well informed and find yourself a better student of the subject at the end."
--Robert Duvall, Academy Award-winning actor, Tender Mercies, Emmy Award-winning actor, Broken Trail, writer, producer, director

"If you want tools that help you take command of your craft under pressure, under duress, under any set of circumstances, whether nurturing or maddening, then read this book. It offers a boot camp for actors that retrains us, redirects us to become hunters for truth in our work."
--Richard Schiff, Emmy Award-winning actor, The West Wing

"An instructive, no nonsense, passionate cry to the actor: Bring your intelligence and humanity to the audition not your desperation."
--Larry Moss, acting coach and director, author of The Intent to Live

"Audition for Your Career has the power to shift your way of being to one that's curious, open to love, intuitively confident, and, ultimately, human. Imagine facing your next audition with a 'Put me in Coach--I've got this!' feeling. That is the gift of this book."
--Kim Hudson, script consultant, author of The Virgin's Promise

"Tim Phillips' style of teaching fosters great respect for the work and for each other."
--Wendie Malick, Emmy Award-nominated actress, Just Shoot Me!

From the Author

The phone rings, an email arrives, your smart phone vi­brates. It's your agent. A project is being cast and there's a part in it that might be right for you. They're expecting you at the casting office tomorrow. You don't have a whole lot of time, but that's okay. Opportunity has just come knocking at your front door and you know you have the chops to open it. After all, that's what you do... you're an actor. This is your chance to act.

Perhaps you intend to self-submit a video of yourself doing an audition for a role you saw posted online. This happens more and more often these days. You are taking control of your destiny as an artist.

In any case, the "sides" either arrive or you download them. Now you've got a few pages of script in hand along with a short description of the character and the scene: a name, a place, and a few other pertinent facts. It's time to put your training and talent and energy to good use. Your task is to transform those words on the page into a memorable living and breathing human being.
What's the first thought that goes through your mind? Is it negative or positive?

"Boy, I really want to book this one. I could use the money from
this job."

"I wonder who I'm up against. I hope they like me. I thought my last audition was solid; but I never heard anything... I don't want that
to happen again."

"Wahoo! It's playtime. I can't wait! Who do I get to be?"

"Let's get down to business."
Always the perfect gift
