What is your criteria in determining which projects you select?
In order for me to choose to do a project, it has to speak to me on a very personal level. I have to believe in my art in order for me to expect anyone else to believe it. It is a soul-searching process each time I pick up a new script.
I make an effort to take every job that comes my way and to try to get any job that I can. There is rarely ever a reason to turn down a role unless it is conflicting with a previous engagement or personal values.
I like to know that I'm working with good people, that the standards are high, but I also want to know what it will do for me as a performer. So, some things I ask are:
In what ways is the character going to challenge and develop me?
Do I like the script/project as a whole?
Is it paid and if so on what scale?
Where is it being performed/screened?
Is it likely that potential employers are going to see it?
Can I use it for showreel?
Will it look good on my CV?
Im not yet say a Kerri Washington, lol, so when going for an audition to be selected I try and find and determine if there is trueth in the script. Meaning can I portray this character with honesty? Can I become her and not just "act" like her? those are some of the questions I ask myself. Is the script a story that should be told? I just like to have a connection with whatever project Im going out for.
If it's union & if it pays,......at this point in my career,.....
A very important factor for me is if the project is going to further my development as an actress. Also simply if I like the work of the company/director.
I think about how it is going to play to my skills as an actress or if it is going to expand my experience and make me grow.
The client must meet my minimum hourly rate.
Disturbing, real, a hard hitting message.
