The Audition Code

The Audition Code is a ten-point protocol for industry standard auditions that establish you as a bookable actor. Everyone knows they need to audition well. Not everyone knows exactly what that means. Gunnar will unpack what masterful auditions are made of in this comprehensive overview.

It’s important to understand that auditioning is actually its own genre of acting. The actor is isolated on a mark with no obvious point of reference for scaling, volume, tone, etc. We have to imagine EVERYTHING and make it feel authentic.

Auditioning can feel like free falling in space unless you have training and practice. Gunnar will help you bring your best performance ability to the mark. If you want to make your first take the best take – a booking take – Gunnar will show you how with The Audition Code!

Gunnar will teach you:

➥  How the camera can work in your favor (or against you)

➥  How to ignite yourself on the way to the mark

➥  What to avoid so you don’t look awkward or inexperienced on the mark

➥  How to avoid simple, common missteps that take you of the running

➥  How to slate and give your name in a powerful way that will get you noticed

And much more!

12 – 2 pm PST


  1. RSVP responsibly. We are offering these workshops as a respite from chaos and an opportunity for those with limited funds to keep their training up. We’d greatly appreciate it if you only RSVP to our workshops if you are 100% committed to attending.
  2. We cannot magically give your spot to someone else when you drop out. So please don’t ask us to fill your spot for you. We do not have a waiting list. If you can’t make it, please consider filling your spot yourself!
  3. Please do not email or call our office letting us know you cannot attend. That simply creates more administrative work for us.
  4. A link to join the meeting will be sent out approximately 1 hour before the start of the meeting, not earlier.
  5. Workshops are free with coupon code Agree

We hope to see your beautiful faces in one of the squares! Thank you in advance for your commitment to keeping your reservation. Much love, the faculty and staff of ACS.
