Open calls might seem like a long shot because hundreds or even thousands of actors can appear. In such circumstances and with such long waiting times and short auditions, it’s easy to doubt yourself and fail to show your best side.
An open call or open audition is an acting audition where everyone who is interested can come and showcase their talent. As the name suggests, these types of auditions are open for everyone, unlike a scheduled audition so typically, hundreds of aspiring actors appear.
Most people have some degree of stage fright, which may be why they want to be an actor, singer, or dancer. Actors may experience stage fright when asked to perform in a play or TV show opposite a famous actor or actress, but singers may experience stage fright when asked to perform at a music festival or open air recital.
