Re: Kids Know Best?

I got the same! Very odd wasn't it! I expected to be auditioning for a specific job role to be part of their videos etc where is it just sounds as though they're adding 100s of children to a database just incase they ever need them :$ not really what I expected x

Re: Joseph and the amazing technicolor dreamcoat

Hi,
There's a discussion about this in the Musical Theatre section :) I'm sure they were discussing the singing part so might be worth looking there :D

Re: Mary Poppins

It doesn't specify location in the breakdown on Jo Hawes' website, but based on previous experience with similar shows I think it is most likely that children will need to live within commuting distance to London. I would suggest emailing or tweeting Jo to ask - she is usually pretty quick to respo...

Re: Self Tape Success Stories

Oh Sugarplumfairy that is grand news, fingers crossed for your DD and yes, you absolutely do not mind (and in fact love quite a bit!) spending the money on travel if you know you have been noticed :) I think these days so many are doing self-tapes first that you cannot fail to start getting just th...

Re: Self Tape Success Stories

Snap, sugarplumfairy - my DS had the same news last week. I wonder if it's the same series? Best of luck to your DD for her recall! I definitely think self-tapes are a learning curve. DS got nowhere with them for ages but has had several recalls from tapes in the last 6 months, so I think we must b...

Re: Self Tape Success Stories

Re: Self Tape Success Stories

We tend to have more success with scripted self tapes than non scripted. From scripted self tapes she ended up booking a lead role in a feature film (two self tapes followed by a screen test) and the lead role in two short films, We quite like self tapes with scripts because you can do a couple of t...

Re: Jobs outside of London

Thanks paddyleo :) Is Spotlight the best place to find film and tv auditions or are there other websites? Does Spotlight really get many more than say, Mandy Kids? I understand that with Spotlight you have to have an agent so maybe I hold off doing that for a while and just see how many auditions o...

Re: Asking your agent to submit you?

They more than likely will have submitted you as its in their interest to if you fit the brief. However I dont see any harm in sending a quick message to make them aware if its specific skills you feel you match, then even if they have already submitted they could add additional details to the notes...
