I am still conducting a couple of auditions this weekend. Last week we met with actors in a somewhat formal atmosphere. This weekend I'm meeting with three actors who were not available this week and we are going to meet in coffee shops. Sometimes, with independent film you've got to do things outside the norm...accommodating people who support their art work, acting and music with "real jobs" means meeting up when ever we can.
I've done a few sketches to think about wardrobe and the characters. I also search around for photos of clothes that might represent a character. For example in the sketch above the character is wear a Ferrari Jacket and here is a photo of such a jacket. I just keep building a file of images and notes.
Here is another actor I auditioned this week. And below is a sketch because once I met her...her energy started to inspire me to think of her clothes.
And another example of looking at an actor, their body type and sketching quick ideas.
