8 Reasons You Need an Audition Log

If you have a great memory, that's great! Still, you need to keep lists if you’re auditioning for acting roles. I’m serious -- you need to start making lists just to keep it all straight. This entry is about keeping an Audition Log.

Every time you go on an audition, you should write down notes afterwards. These notes are to keep you sharp, remind you who else was in the room, and help you track all your auditions -- whether you’re auditioning a lot or a little. For most actors, as soon as you walk out the room, you forget everything! We want to make sure you have the notes that you need to make sure you are improving as the time goes on. Don't be discouraged, be informed.

So, what is an Audition Log? You know, I didn't know what an audition log was until my career coach Ethan Paulini introduced me to it. I always knew that I needed to keep a log of all of the things that I was doing because my memory is terrible, but I didn't know that it was an actual thing that many people use.

Here are the questions that you should be asking yourself and tracking after you walk out of every audition. Stay tuned to the end because I'm going to tell you the best way to keep track of all these questions.
