Many people would like to get a chance to be in a music video audition, especially after watching a finished product. Videos have helped to change the way people perceive music. It is no longer just about the sound, it is also about the visuals. Those in the music industry spend a long time ensuring that the videos are just right. A good music video can help to sell music fast, while a bad video can ruin the music. Video directors will use a music video casting call to select the dancers and other extras that appear in the background of the music video.
Video casting directors are always looking for people to appear as the video cast. Anyone who wants to be part of the video needs to know where and when the auditions are taking place. Needless to say, anyone who wants to be part of the dance group has to be a good dancer. The dance choreographers have to be convinced that you can learn a new dance routine in a short time. You also need to have the physical appearance and characteristics that they are looking for. Those who cannot dance should concentrate on being part of the crowd or the extras.
Anyone who goes to an audition for a video should always have the right attitude. It is important to remember that there are many others auditioning for the part. The casting directors will drop anyone who according to them, has a bad attitude. In some situations, some dancers go into the audition feeling that they know best and they think that they can 'outshine' everyone. Such people will often be cut-out or eliminated from the auditions. There is only one star in the music video, and it is the person singing. All the others should remember they are there as extras.
The attitude you portray before the casting directors is very crucial in determining whether you get the role. Looking nervous, shy or over excited will usually act against you. The directors are usually looking for someone who can be calm and confident when the cameras are on. It is important to arrive early for the auditions. This not only shows good work ethics, it also helps you to complete any requirements that may be needed. You may be required to fill out forms before the auditions begin.
While dancing skills are not a need for the extras, it helps to have the looks that the directors are looking for. In most cases, they are looking for attractive people or people with a certain look, to appear in the music video. Depending on what they are trying to portray in the video, the directors will be looking for certain features.
