I've been frantically texting all my fashion guru friends to ask what to wear, and google-ing advice for Skype auditions. Andy is absolutely no help in this matter, in fact he's totally counter productively smug about it. This could be because he got hired for his job via a Skype interview while we were still living in Berlin. Phrases such as, "Well at least you are on the same time," really aren't all that helpful. In truth, there is an hour difference between me and the producers in Indianapolis, so there, in your face Andy.
I did come across some interesting advice for actors who are auditioning via Skype, though I'm pretty sure not all of that is really applicable in my situation. However, it did make me feel better to learn that Jennifer Lawrence auditioned for Silver Linings Playbook via Skype. My skills are nowhere near as magnificent as hers, but that was such a major part to try to convey via internet. Way to go Jennifer! I also have no acting training whatsoever, unless you count one single community college speech class that I took in 2003.
I'm also taking a smidgen of confidence from the fact that I do not need to try to say the word "penis" 152 times in my essay, like my friend Marianne. Of course then I remember that, I'm also not a world renowned co-author of a book like she is, so there goes that confidence.
