Re: Casting amounts

Thank you ladies, both replies are really helpful. Dd loves self-taping and enjoyed her casting so is constantly asking if I have had any emails. I always get excited if we have an email from the agency. Like you mentioned, I try and find a reason to touch base with the agency just as a way to say ‘...

Casting amounts

Hi all, this is probably an impossible question. We are quite new to this and just wondering if what we are experiencing is normal for this industry. DD joined her agency just over 2 months ago, she has had a few self tape requests (booked 1 from these) and 1 actually face to face casting. For the l...

Re: Recommended headshot photographer?

We used Lumosia, they are fab. Relaxed my daughter so much, made her laugh and be serious so we got a great variation of shots. Also the turnaround time for photos was excellent and the gallery of photos taken was available to view within 2 days. https://www.lumosia.co.uk/

Re: Pay question

Thank you for your reply, that makes sense. Though this wasn’t done with any contract and put through as expenses. As it was a longer shoot thinking it will be going on their website or YouTube and not tv. I guess it’s only been 3 weeks, which seems like a lot but not really with the time scales ind...

Pay question

Hi, I am quite a new mum to this and have a question about pay time scales. My dd did a job nearly 3 weeks ago, it was like a commercial/toy review unboxing. In general how does being paid work? Do we wait till after the footage has been used or should she be paid for her work earlier. Dd is with an...

Re: Dealing with no

Thank you so much for replying. Your advice is very helpful. I decided to be honest and she seems ok with it, tho my husband wasn’t helpful in saying maybe she didn’t need to be recalled and has gone straight on to the yes/maybe pile!!! Anyway she said it’s fine and she was grateful for the experien...

Dealing with no

So dd had her first face to face casting Saturday. She was very positive about it and felt she done great, the cd double high fived her, said wow and told dd she smashed it. Of course this made dd even happier and hopeful. Today i saw on another agency’s site that one of the children they represent ...

Re: Those nervous feelings

Awww thank you for replying! Congratulations and good luck to you for the MT.

Our first face to face casting was Saturday and I was more nervous than dd, we walked in to a waiting room of mums and children and I was so
proud of how cool dd kept.

Those nervous feelings

Hi everyone, so we are relative newbies to this. Dd has been with her agency just over a month. So far she has done 2 self tapes and 1 casting (not sure if that’s busy or not) she confirmed from 1 of the self tapes. My question is does anyone else feel nervous or on edge most days. Dd is great, I to...

Help appreciated - photo advice

Hey everyone. My daughter is on spotlight and we had pro photos done for her headshot with an amazing photographer. However I am worried the headshots make her look older than she is :( having paid over £100 for the shoot I do not want to pay for another but have taken a headshot with my phone. Not ...

Spotlight Showreel

Hi, dd has her profile now live on spotlight. As she hasn’t yet had any filmed professional credits she doesn’t have a showreel as such. However I have some great quality footage of her singing against a plain background and also a monologue. Does anyone upload their own clips or is this not recomme...

Re: New to all of this... need pointers

Hi Aku we too are relatively new tho dd is now signed up with an agent it was very confusing to find reputable ones.

This website is really helpful https://filmsonashoestring.com/child-actors/ and will tell you reputable ones, I then did my own research on each and decided who to apply to.
