Why auditions aren’t as fun as they should be, according to one audition watcher
A lot of people want to know why auditions are so boring and how to do them right, says Anu Jain, an auditing expert at the Centre for Business Research, who has been auditing movies for over 20 years.
He is also one of the few people who has witnessed the process from both sides.
“They have auditions and they do not have a script,” he says.
“This is the main reason why people cannot perform as well in auditions as they can in films.”
The auditions also have a big impact on the performers.
When an actor is about to be audited, he or she is asked to watch the movie for two minutes, before the company gives the script to the director.
“After this, the director is asked about what he or her thought of the script,” says Jain.
The auditors are also asked to rate the actors and the director on a scale of 1 to 10, from 1 to 7, where 1 means that the actor is “very good”.
“The auditions may take a few hours, but it is really hard work,” he adds.
“The people who are good are those who are able to concentrate.”
The problem with auditions is that they are very difficult to do right.
There is little time and effort put into them.
“You cannot go to an auditions to do your own auditions,” says Shreya Jain of the Centre.

We have found out that the best people who come to auditions tend to be the people who have the audacity to try their luck,” she adds.

And it is also hard to find a place where you can get an audition,” says Suresh Kapoor, an assistant professor at the University of Mumbai.
He believes that the quality of the films is better when they are done by locals, and not through an online portal.
“It is better to have an actual audition, because a lot of the actors are from rural areas,” he explains.
If the actor has done his or her best, the producers will be happy,” says Kapoor. “
An audition can only do so much for a person.
If the actor has done his or her best, the producers will be happy,” says Kapoor.
“There are many good and bad things about auditions.”
The best way to find an audition venue?
Jain believes that a lot more effort should be put into finding a venue for the audition, and also about the quality.
“If you have an audition at an agency, then you have to find them a venue.
“That is when it becomes the most difficult.””
Then, the next step is finding a place for the actors to be in the theatre,” he continues.
