The Audition is a short comedy satire set in the context of a theatrical audition. Sally and Peter are actors and are going though the torment and sometimes ridicule that any actor can face every day, for a chance to get chosen to perform. It’s only when they start to air their dirty laundry on stage in front of the casting panel, that they get the notice they deserve.
I wanted this film to show how the art form of an actor has been overshadowed by our need for perpetual reality or fake reality. With the dummying down and constant white noise of social media, universally our attention span for anything that is not ’In Your Face” is disappearing.
