I was giving a few tries which I'm extremely grateful, not because it was SO bad that the casting director made me do it again, but since the script was short, the director gave a couple of tries. I'm sure other people auditioning as well got a few tries.
Anyways from all the tries, each time was a bit different. Different in an inconsistent bad way... at least that's how I felt. One try I would pronounce something wrong, the next try I would botch up a sentence but pronounced it well, and another try where I really did put all my effort in, only to realize, I wasn't looking at the camera when I should have. I said everything and did everything great except for the looking at the camera which is in fact an important feature of this particular script and audition. I fix one thing, only to mess up another. I fix 2 things, only to mess up another.
At the end of the day, this just builds confidence. As it should in people who feel discouraged. Some people really beat themselves up for this. Of course I felt bad after I left the audition thinking to myself, DANG. I can't be I just did that, but I need to soldier on and learn from the mistakes that I made.
One previous mistake I made in an audition awhile back was that I was talking too fast. For this audition, I did start off talking fast but then remembered to slow it down. A lesson learned and applied to my life as in actor.
For this audition, I re-learned to "breathe". INHALE AND EXHALE! Now onward to another audition but this time, no script.
