A lot of aspiring entertainers are looking for their big break. Whether it is film, television or the music industry, many talented people are willing to do anything to make their dreams come true. Unfortunately for some, travel expenses may be too costly and may prohibit some very qualified candidates from auditioning for their dream.

That is now a thing of the past, as video conferencing technology allows qualified candidates to audition remotely for acting and musical jobs that were previously conducted in a face-to-face setting.

According to AV TEQ, many casting calls are now implementing web-based conferencing to eliminate the need for travel expenses this can save applicants and studios money as they no longer have to fly experienced talent into the studio. The technology also allows for a larger pool of talent to apply for the position, which improves the chance of success for those trying to make a name for themselves in the industry.

As with any pressure situation, your nerves may sometimes get the best of you. A video conferencing audition is no different. Be as prepared as possible and know you are capable of getting the role. If you remember to stay calm, cool and collected when auditioning, your chances of succeeding are that much better.
