VO4TA: Editorialize 

 

My most FAQ of late:  When people come in to read - what bothers you the most?

Here’s one - Editorializing….   

 

Example - You finish the read and say... “Well, that was awful!”  It’s almost the inverse of asking: “Was that any good?”

 

Unless you have a relationship with the casting director that would make that a funny comment, don’t go there.

 

Here’s why: judging yourself really isn’t your job.  Being open to receive comment is your job.  Understanding what the director has to say is your job.  And editorializing aloud forces a reaction from the person listening distracting them from directing you into something better.
