Today, I filmed my Star Wars audition tape.
Seriously. The script is *so* bad. The character descriptions sound like they were written from Cliché Bingo cards. I called up the only number I knew that belonged to a man, and asked if he would come over and read the lines for the character called “Thomas” for the purpose of the audition. Luckily for me, he used to be super into acting!
It was so much fun.
It took us pretty much the first hour to be able to get through the script without cracking up and the sheer cheese factor of it all. Then we did the whole “AC-TORE” thing where we over-analyzed the crap out of the twenty lines we were given, in an attempt to have them make any sense whatsoever.
All in all, I think we were quite successful.
