Re: Using house as filming location

That's interesting Pandora - thanks.

I hadn't thought about the wear and tear side of it, but now you say it, yes I bet things gets fairly trashed. Not such an appealing option perhaps then...!

Using house as filming location

Hi Has anyone got any experience of this, or have any idea what the going rate might be? Is it a total nightmare? A friend of mine lives in a (very small) country house/stately home in the north of England and has the possibility of it being used for a small indy feature film location but they have ...

Re: Pressure Pit Gameshow warning

Have you reported it to Mandy too?
They have followed up on people running unlicensed shoots when I have reported it in the past, and they have also taken down and blocked a recent posting which invited submissions only to then spam you with lots of self promotional rubbish from the original poster.

Re: Pressure Pit Gameshow warning

Thank you for sharing Darmont. It is a really useful cautionary tale, and as said above, so good that you were supervising throughout and I hope you are both ok. Please dont feel foolish - the unscrupulous rely on the fact that the rest of us have to have s degree of trust to make the world go round...

Re: BA Hons Theatre Production as back up ?

Guildhall do BA Hons in Production Arts, and also in Technical Theatre, which are very highly regarded. My DS starts there in Sept but on the music strand. The people I know who did the technical theatre course (about 10 years ago) are all still working successfully in the industry.

Re: Advice needed about agency applications from a complete novice!

I'm sure others with more experience will chip in shortly, but all the MT jobs DS has ever got have been open audition rather than agency, so having an agent for MT is not a necessity. Having said that I know he has been put forward by his agent for some MT things and it may make you more likely to ...

Re: Should I change DS training and agent or not?

It sounds like he has done fantastically well in the past - congratulations to him =D> My DS (10) has never come close in west end MT despite performing professionally locally and overseas, so your son must have that happy combination of both excellent ability and the look that was wanted. The MT he...

Re: Do agencies all require upfront payment?

No they don't. We have been with three different reputable agencies, none of which have charged any up front fees. The only fee we pay is for spotlight, and headshots, which we can get from our own choice of photographer. I think some people have posted before about some agencies with admin fees whi...

Re: Mandy, backstage....etc.

Mandy and Starnow are legit. Mandy only has paid castings. Starnow also has unpaid work which can include student films or Time for Prints photo shoots. As I mentioned above, some element of caution is advisable when deciding whether to apply. If the individual listing doesn't feel very professional...

Re: Mandy, backstage....etc.

We have used Mandy, backstage, casting network and starnow over the years. DS is only 10 though, so others may have suggestions for 16+. Have you looked at extras work too as she is 16, that might be an option? We have had paid work through Mandy and Starnow, some low key local stuff and some much b...
