Ask Me! – On-camera audition monologues?

Anonymous asked
So when I audition for Student Film, Short Films etc they ask for monologue. I have trouble finding one and it becomes a headache. Where can I find one and what could be a good way to find one that works for you?

I’ll be writing a more detailed article on this soon, but if you’re finding that you need a monologue for on-camera auditions and you’re having trouble finding one, I’d recommend a few things.

If you’re clear on your type you could study Film/TV actors who are also the same type as you and see if there are any monologues from projects that they have done. When you find something, simply transcribe it. There is nothing wrong with that.

In addition, the Drama Book Shop is a great resource. You might need to spend a couple of days going in and browsing plays, screenplays and even monologue books to find one you like, but it’ll be worth it.

Good luck!
