We're gonna shoot an audition that you're genuinely EXCITED to send in.

15 minutes: $0-$15
30 minutes: $10-$30
60 minutes: $40-$60

My things:
- Genre, relationship, and circumstances
- Reacting
- finding thoughts before we speak
- finding life and business in the white space between the lines
- finding clues in the scene when we don't have the whole script
- pacing
