FOR FILM/TV/THEATRE FOR KIDS AND ADULTS
Please submit the following: a headshot, resume, and either a demo reel, taped monologue, or taped audition.
FOR KID MODELS 4-17
You can submit good, clear snapshots for submission if you do not have professional images to submit. However, professional industry-standard images will be required before we actually sign a minor. These photos are the most important tool that we have to submit your child to our clients. We have a list of recommended photographers on our Parent page and on our Resource page. Please know if you are under the age of 13, we do not want any makeup on your child, no jewelry, and very little Photoshop. Boys, no earrings at any age. We need kids to look like kids!
FOR KIDS UNDER 2 YEARS OLD
If you are under 2, you do not need professional photos, but you must have good photos of your child. These photos are the only tool we have to get your child work. Please do not just submit any photo that you have on your phone. Please take photos with a clean background and good light. Your child must be looking at the camera and smiling, if possible.
