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 competition is fierce in this field, and your child may attend many castings and auditions before they are successful and secure a job.
By 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 and photographers will expect confidence and enthusiasm at all auditions. Parent commitment is also imperative, as it can be a difficult task taking children to and from castings and chaperoning them on productions whilst trying to juggle work and other family commitments.
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 and 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. This industry really does require a lot of commitment from parents as well as children.
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.
