Boom 💥

This is me coming home from an audition for King Kong where I was told I was too 'ugly' for the role. It was a momentous moment for me.

That ill-intentioned opinion could have shattered my dreams of becoming an actress or forced me to pull myself together and believe in myself.

I took a breath and said, 'I'm sorry you think I'm too ugly for your movie but yours is just an opinion out of thousands.'

To this day, I have 18 Oscar nominations.

For you!

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT Mishelle…what a capsule of light and talent you are 💫Your angelic singing voice and your ability to bring characters to life in your acting, is your gift! 💥A gift I can’t wait for you to share this year!

Thank you for your amazing headshots…an experience that was a first for Mishelle. Who would’ve guessed? Nailed it 🙌

I look forward to having you back in class next week. You’re one of those magical people that lights up a room the moment you walk in…

Any Agent would be happy to have you…here we go 2024!



STUDENT SPOTLIGHT ~ Zephyr, you are one of those students in class that’s always full of surprises…good ones of course 😊

On top of your quirky sense of humour and your uniqueness, you’re such a fine young actor, and definitely one to watch! You’re always raising your own bar, and show such a compelling willingness to try anything…a great trait for any aspiring actor 💫

Here we go 2024 .still this is definitely your year! 🙌



Using one item to show character…👓

Selecting the perfect item, whether it be a significant costume choice, prop or even something that the character has on them & not necessarily seen on camera, can open up a whole new world of possibilities for the actor to reveal character.

Now the fun begins! Who am I?


Zara with a Z…

Every single week you show up, always ready for anything! I love watching you grow, your commitment and hard work is a direct reflection of what a fine young actress you’ve become 💫

Keep going Zara you’re such a delight to have in class and you should be so very proud of yourself 👏


Play the moment, Not the story!

Last weeks class, exploring emotions. The exercise was to give each student a piece of news that was to rock them to their core…I set a mood and got each of them to enter the studio one-at-a-time…they had no idea what the news would be…the only direction given was to react!

As an acting coach, it is critical for me to ensure I’m able to guide them back from some of those darker character journeys a young actor has to sometimes take… but more importantly, to teach them ‘how’ and ‘when’ to leave those characters behind & head back into the joyful light of reality!

Charlotte you broke my heart 💔You absolutely nailed the brief! Well done 🙌🏼


The importance of a good actors headshot!

Less than 24 hours of his Agent uploading one of our students new headshots to his profiles, he received another audition request for a role in a very exciting upcoming project.

Watch this there's a few more of our students to share in more exciting opportunities for Selftape requests...

2024 here they come! 💥

A look is sometimes all it takes…

A mere glance can speak volumes, transcending the need for dialogue. It’s the craft of precisely expressing what your character is thinking and feeling in a singular moment…the magic of the moments, in-between the moments! 🪄

TVC Self-Tape audition and coaching for the lovely and talented Greer Atkinson…

The casting brief called for a substantial amount of improv within the scenes. Highlighting the significance of an actor possessing the ability to engage in spontaneous and unscripted performance as a valuable skill.

That's a wrap!" 🎬

An unforgettable experience and opportunity for one of our students and their role on this amazing production, it’s cast and the helm of visionary writer/director & his equally talented co-writer and partner

The term “That’s a Wrap” is thought to have been coined during the 1920’s from the transition from silent films to the ‘talkies’. Some say the term "wrap" is as an acronym for "Wind, Reel, And Print," referring to the final stages of shooting. Regardless of the debate and it’s historical meaning, it’s one of those magical statements entrenched in the heart of filmmaking.

The words themselves embody the dedication, creative process and the relentless efforts of ALL the cast and crew. The transformation of the initial concept of a story, into a magical cinematic reality.

Can’t wait to see this great Australian story share its magic on the big screen!



Thats a wrap! 🎬

Final shoot day and an end to what’s been an incredible experience and opportunity for our student, Riley, in his role on this feature film…can’t wait to share more when it’s time 👏

‘All The Light We Cannot See’

2 years ago I had the privilege of reading some amazing audition sides and coaching young actress, Edan, who was asked to cast for the lead role for the recently released Netflix limited series ‘All The Light We Cannot See’. The screen adaptation of Anthony Doerrs’s novel.

The casting directors were looking globally for Blind and Low vision Actresses to play the part - Edan is an actress with low vision...she didn’t end up getting the role, but the scenes she put down were nothing short of amazing.

The script, my experience with Edan and her scenes, my Dads old radio as a prop (which also carried some rich stories, and more poignant for me as he’d only recently passed away), was one of the most moving moments of my teaching life…

Fast forward to 3 days ago…I sat down to start watching the series and finally got to experience the scenes in glorious context. I was reminded once again of its magical universal message, the endurance of survival.

‘Open your eyes and see what you can with them before they close forever’
~ Anthony Doerr (Author ‘All the Light We Cannot See’)

Can’t wait to see the rest 👏



Such exciting news for all the incredible cast and crew who worked tirelessly on this epic project…in our own back yard👏…And for The Audition Process a chance to see some of our incredibly talented students, both with roles and as extras up on our screens.

The 10-episode drama ‘Nautilus’ was originally commissioned by Disney+ in the UK but was axed by the streamer earlier this year as part of cost cuts. It will air in the US and Canada on AMC and its streaming platform AMC+ in 2024.

🎬Nautilus tells the origin story of Captain Nemo who appears in several of Verne’s books as a sea captain seeking vengeance on British Imperialism…

An incredible tale filmed on a scale rarely seen in our country, and the privilege of a lifetime watching my students be part of its journey.

STAY TUNED! For role reveals when the time comes 😉


We extend our heartfelt gratitude to for entrusting us with your Yr 9 students work experience placement program here at The Audition Process. Now our 2nd year!

We’re deeply appreciative of the continuing opportunity to contribute to your students growth and future successes through the experiences they gained while with us.
