Audition Attire

Hello all, So one question I always ask the casting director before an audition "do you want me to wear anything in-particular?". If they say yes and give me the details, great; but on most occasions there are not specific requirements. This always leave me wondering what is appropriate for the audition, found this little guide that points you in the general direction.

You might want to tailor your attire for the audition to slightly suggest the role you are going for. You want to stand out from the others auditioning, not be a clone of them.

Tony, if you have time check out Uma's free chat with RB. I don't think they talk about attire, but they go over other useful tips!

It depends on the project. For commercials they usually specify if they want you to come in wearing a suit, business attire, casual, etc. Never wear anything that strobes on the camera like patterns that are too complicated. For TV especially comedies, say multi-cam, I go in wearing brighter colors. Always do your best to stay true to your interpretation of the character and dress how that character would. Always do your research. Hope this helps.
