Hi there, in February The Modern Actor featured an exclusive step-by step process. on how to dissect sides. Here's what actor/ writer and fellow Modern Actor reader, Tom Williamson had to say about his process for breaking down sides, auditioning, and re-fueling his artistry.
"I have been acting professionally for about five years, and this information was invaluable. When I first came out, I would do this process with EVERY audition. Sometimes it worked but I'm talking 1/50 and that may be generous. That rejection takes a toll and forced me to rethink my approach to auditions. Some of them were better than others but what I started noticing I booked when I did the least amount of work. This confused me and created a lazy approach to my work that was killing my artist but somehow serving its purpose. When I came across this post it felt like a gift from the universe. Here were all the things I used to LOVE doing in preparation for a role that I could now fuse with everything else I have found successful over the last few years. Deeply grateful for the time you took to share this Mr. Ramos!"
