BECOME AN ARTISTE
If you are a parent that is looking for your child to join our agency, please bear in mind the following:
Artistes that we represent cover a wide range of looks, ages and experience.
Unfortunately, due to the large amount of applications we receive we cannot accept every one onto our books. Each application is considered individually, taking into account their look, experience and abilities. Some are accepted solely for their strength of personality and enthusiasm.
The one thing that is of utmost importance is your child's desire to join the agency and motivation to succeed in the industry.
Patience is also a virtue as in this field, competition is fierce and your child may attend many castings/auditions before they are successful and secure a job.
By us meeting your child at their interview we will know if he/she feels comfortable and confident in front of the camera, this is so important as casting directors/photographers will expect confidence and enthusiasm at all auditions.
We feel that if we are going to represent your child it is imperative that an excellent professional relationship is formed between us and yourselves from the very beginning, this is why attending the interview is so important. This also gives us an excellent insight to your child's character so that we may put them forward for the best suited roles.
Most auditions/castings are arranged at short notice and you need to be flexible in your timetable and ensure you arrive punctually with a professional and enthusiastic attitude.
You should also note that a lot of work takes place during term time and school hours and if your child is successful at the audition process they may need to obtain a licence to be absent from school from your local education authority.
If you are a Supporting Artiste/Actor looking to join us:
As you may be aware there are many agencies that will accept you onto their books via e mail. We at Borthwick Casting insist on meeting you for an informal chat and to take our own professional photographs for our website. This enables us to build an excellent relationship with you and get to know you, which in turn puts us in a position to know which roles will suit.
We pride ourselves in supplying individuals that represent our company in a professional and courteous manner at all times. We request that you arrive punctually with any required costumes.
