You can easily do this by setting up your smart phones or computers and recording some monologues or scenes with your camera. The recording is the easy part, the more important part would be choosing great material for yourself and getting it up to a level 10 in terms of power and dynamics.

School is never out… whether it be for summer, fall or winter… for actors who must always be prepared to spring into auditions! Learning, “How to Audition Success fully for Both Traditional and New Media” takes constant re-assessment. Luckily, actors have a new tool to help them prep… a book called “Mastering Monologues and Acting sides,” by voiceover industry veteran Janet Wilcox. The book is everything an actor needs to land a great part in today’s rapidly changing performing arts industry. Janet Wilcox wrote the book primarily because she “was inspired by voice actors and the fact that so much of what they do is a monologue.” And because she “went to the bookstore and saw that acting books haven’t changed much.”
