An actor’s life can be very hard. Auditions, rejections, wins, and many many losses. This casting office in Melbourne, Australia holds numerous auditions a day, with many hopeful actors coming through the doors every day. When the head casting director and director put a casting out for a commercial for new flavored water, Karen submits her resume and gets an audition. Karen has been plugging away as an actress for a few years and secured a few very minor roles. She everything crossed that she will nail this commercial casting.
The Director has a vision for this new commercial – the successful actress must be able to fully commit to the role, aka turning herself into a fish and fighting off a shark whilst flapping on the floor. No backing out now. Karen is up for the challenge and at the end of the audition is pretty happy with herself. However the Casting Director and Director aren’t sure she committed enough. Will she get her break?
This sketch comedy, the third episode of The Casting Couch comedy web series will have directors, producers, casting directors and any poor acting’s soul laughing out loud at how close this comes to the reality of showbiz in the entertainment industry.
