Remember your very first acting class?

If you had a great teacher, of course you learned the number one acting NO-NO of all time…

Never play the result.



Why?  Result acting is false and inauthentic…

It's flat and boring…

It doesn't book you the role…

And yet…

I've seen it show up in auditions more times than I can count (surprisingly, even from very experienced actors).

So, if you want to avoid accidentally committing this mortal acting and auditioning sin, please watch this video…

    I’m pretty sure you won’t be able to get rid of me. I just signed up for your class tomorrow and I’ve been watching your videos and rafting your blogs. You’re amazing! This is totally cool. Thank you for putting this together for actors like me. ( I’m new to the business). I’ve been in 17 movies in just 4 months!! I may be onto something. Now, if I can just get a speaking role. What’s your advice to land a speaking role of you’ve been a background actor?

    Yes, it’s so easy to fall into that trap. I often say this is how I want to say this but I know it has to fueled by intention. Still hard to have it come off not looking rehears-y or preplanned.

    ❤️✅. Love this tip. Giving an example and then explaining how to keep the audition ‘real’ ‘authentic’ & not to sabotage ones audition was a good input. Especially for me since I’ll be hopefully doing my first ever real audition – thanks!

  13. Karon Shelton says:

    Very simple and valuable

  14. Amos Bohoussou says:

    Thank you, Amy. This is a useful tip for me to remember for my next audition. I find it also good when I am confident and I know my lines througly I should be able not to ask questions to avoid playing the “results” .

  15. Derek Stefan says:

    Thank you, Amy, for another great audition tip here! This is such an important facet of being in the room and responding to an adjustment organically and not going for a result. Good for me to always keep top of mind to deliver authentic acting with choices that will read well to the CD, director, et. al.

  16. Jackie Bales says:

    This is a super helpful tip, Amy. I do mostly voice acting (voiceover) and it’s easy to think way too much about which word you want to emphasize and whether you should put a pause in a certain place. Thank you!!

  17. Marcia Shapiro says:

    When I’m really cooking my acting recipe, I know organic wins. I know this may sound quirky, but sometimes I have a fear of success. I’ve given some outstanding auditions, gotten callbacks, then with all the pressure and whatever else, somehow I don’t get it, and didn’t do as well as I’d done earlier. How can I protect myself from myself?

  18. Karen says:

    Amazing. I do this when I get insecure and I get on the way of myself, I know better. I learnt well in acting class.

  19. Keesha Miller says:

    This wad vey helpful! Thank you!

  20. Nancy says:

    It was a good one. Thanks. But when the CD is saying I want this or I want that, what tips can you give for not allowing that in my head? Thanks, Amy.
