Re: Casing amounts

Also forgot to say my dd is nearly ten and blue eyed/blonde hair which is extremely common and automatically puts the odds against her in comparison to a child/brief for a less common combination I have found (was actually warned this from a lot of agencies we met with) xx

Re: Self Tape Success Stories

Hi, my biggest piece of advice would be for you and DC to relax when filming them. Make sure it’s landscape and good sound etc. My DD is similar in that she sees it as abit of a chore and would much rather do an audition in front of people. We have done a fair few, DD had a recall for one advert and...

Re: Top Talent Agency auditions?

No problem, we did the same and made a trip of it, it was DDs first audition and she loved it so it was a shock to the system on her next one which was very formal one on one haha! They were very welcoming at Top Talent though and put the kids at ease x Good luck xx

Re: Top Talent Agency auditions?

Hi, when we went there was probably about 30 per group but they had sessions throughout the day. DD went in a room and did games. Then they filmed them front and back,possibly introducing themselves to camera. Then finished with a “catwalk”. DD had loads of fun but in my opinion there was zero actua...

Re: North west agencies

Purple giraffe are very good :) jobs usually come through via email and phone calls though so where the agency is based doesn’t really matter, they all get the same casting briefs and most auditions will be London area. Hope this helps :) 14 can be a difficult age casting wise as licensing changes w...

Re: BGT 2018

Re: New and after noobie tips

Hi, I’d be reluctant to sign with someone who wanted more than spotlight/headshot fees. I know a lot of reputable agencies do seem to charge a fee of some sort,however in my opinion they get paid when they take their commission from any jobs your child may have. I think it’s a personal choice. Is th...

Re: Newbie: audition for Ghostwriters

I was just going to mention this, I think there is an expectation from agents for all kids to submit a tape if needed. A lot of the time castings can be last minute, often less than 24 hours notice. We have been fortunate so far in the we have always had at least 48 hours notice, however we were tol...

Re: Newbie: audition for Ghostwriters

Hi, it’s likely that the agency submitted him for the role. I’m new to this also but from my understanding the briefs go out to all agencies via spotlight etc,the agencies then submit kids they feel for the brief. Usually is a self tape first then if they want to see your child then you get audition...
