A screening interview and callback are two different things. The screening interview is a short meeting where the casting director tries to determine whether or not you will be accepted for the part. On the other hand, a callback is a longer interview where you are invited to the casting director’s office for a more complete assessment of your skills. In both cases, the aspiring actor tries to help the director consider him or her for the part.

On the other hand, a call back is basically one step before clinching the part. This refers to a situation where the casting director has already chosen you but just wants to make sure that he has made the right decision. He just wants to make sure that you have the right „chemistry“ to take on the job.

A call back interview’s duration varies. There are those that last for a few minutes while others last for a whole day. The reason is because it is not only the casting director who will be interviewing you this time but perhaps other members or directors of the production. To be prepared for this, ask the coordinator, the person who informs you of the call back, for more details. Ask who will be in the panel. Find out more and do your own homework about the production company, the film, the directors and all other things connected to the part that you will be playing.

As mentioned before, most of the interviewing panel will be meeting with you for the first time. So be prepared to answer the same questions over and over again. Be patient and try as much as possible not to get frustrated. Answer them thoroughly as much as you can as if this was the first time someone asked that question.

In a call back, always arrive at the venue a few minutes before your appointment. Arriving too early will make you anxious and lose your cool. Arriving too late, on the other hand, makes you look bad. While waiting, you can practice what you will be saying to the interviewers.

Once you are in the interview room, try to be engaging and smart. Enthusiastic but not overwhelming. Do not move in your seat too much. Try to make the conversation as light as you can but with a bit of formality. When answering questions go straight to the point. Try avoiding fillers such as „uh“ and „um“ in between words and never interrupt the interviewer while he is talking.

Be conscious of your voice and body language but do not be obvious. Show just enough amount of enthusiasm but do not be overwhelming. Look for individual cues that will require you to expound on what you had just said.

Because the position requires acting skills, you might be required to read a script and act it out. In connection with this, it will be best if you bring a reference list or extra copies of your resume highlighting previous acting exposures, training, and experience. Before you leave, try to recall all the interviewer’s names in order for you to send a thank you note later on. This practice is acceptable and it will leave a good impression.
