Jonathan Paul had a dream and with that dream he had a plan. From a young child Jonathan had plans of becoming a movie star. When he told his classmates he was going to be a big star one-day laughter rang out all over the playground. Even his close friends told him he was crazy and that it would never happen. From the beginning the ridicul created self-doubt then hatred had set in; he vowed to prove them all wrong. Jonathan had many demons, and he was willing to do what ever it took to make a name for himself. In route to his success he meets a beautiful young Black district attorney name Jasmine Cooper. He would later find out that she was married to a hit-man. Reality has just knocked on his front door causing him to rethink his plan. Dreams began to resurrect the secrets he had never shared with anyone. They caused him to question the significance of people in his life. Where would these people fit into his plan? How would Jonathan deal with the tragedy that would soon cross his path?

Frustrating, nerve-wracking, job-winning or job-losing, flawed yet necessary - auditioning is a maddening business for everyone involved. The people behind the audition desk are looking for a killer audition (often under tremendous pressure), but most of the auditionees walk into the room feeling nervous, unprepared, and unable to control their own performance. Although the idea of creating 'winning performance strategies' is common in business and sports studies, no one has ever really attempted to bring the psychology of creating a winning performance to a book on auditioning. Drawing on some fascinating, cutting-edge research into how the brain copes and responds in high-stress situations, Mastering the Audition looks closely at the effects of fear, at our flawed ability to assess or really know ourselves, at what really drives us, and at what it really takes to master the audition experience. Applicable to all areas of performing, including reality television, musicals, stage, film and commercials, this book helps you hone your performing skills and develop the mental toughness that can keep you going through the inevitable ups and downs of the audition process. Where other books advise you to 'be confident' and 'be prepared', Mastering the Audition tells you exactly HOW.
