So, nowadays, actors often film their own auditions. The casting director emails you some sides and then you record yourself on your handy home camera or, in my case, phone.
This weekend I had an audition for a blurb on cosmetic dentistry. “Must have white teeth,” etc. read the call notice. Now my teeth are fairly white and I did get chosen to audition. However, as I recorded myself, I was forced to look at my mouth. And look at it I did. As each moment passed, I became more self-conscious and unnerved at what I can only call a Kafkaesque transformation unfolded.
