JESSICA MARTIN del CAMPO

1. What was the spot for and who cast it?
It's a national commercial for Nissan and it was cast by Action Casting. (Los Angeles)

2. What 101 tools did you use in the audition?
I became aware of what the client wanted us to think about the Brand. I looked for the adjectives in my role description and walked into the casting office already in character.
And being of service was all I was thinking when I was driving to the audition and once I was in the room! During my slate, I pictured my future boss and I could see him looking at me with an expression of excitement because I was there. Also, I asked the assistant her name (she was surprised that I asked and she smiled). Since my character had no lines and it was all Improv, once I got the directions from the CD on what the situation was I quickly pictured my surroundings and placed them next to the camera so I could feel more present. I figured out what the relationship was towards the other characters and at the end of the scene I chose to use a Tag that made me laugh.

3. What 101 tools did you use in the callback?
The tools I used at the callback where similar to the audition. I kept in mind that I was there to serve. Also, I wore the exact same outfit, I tried to visualize the same pictures, I did the exact same thing I did in my first audition, used the same phrases I improved the first time but I was also prepared to change it if they asked me to, and I showed them that I was someone that they could work with.

4. What 101 tools did you use on set?
I learned the Director's name, DP and PA and once again I was there to serve and did my best. I was nice to everyone, and found that everyone was very nice to me.
I didn't go crazy on the craft table, I didn't want to get sick on set. and at the end I thanked everyone including the Stylist, Hair and Makeup team

5. What's one thing you'd keep, and one thing you'd leave behind?
I definitely will always keep in mind that auditions are not about me, it's about them and I am there only to help. I'll try to leave behind the judgement after the audition, thinking what I could've done different and replaying the audition over and over in my head. I have to let it go and just be happy that I had the opportunity to show them what I got, which is enough :)

Bottom line, I applied the tools I learned from Bill's class, and the first audition I had right after taking his workshop I booked it!
