A few helpful tips
Parents are the most important support network to help students to take up exciting opportunities and ensure that the child’s best interest always come first.
Before submitting yourself for representation, make sure to consider the pros and cons of the acting industry, and undertake significant research on each talent agency to gauge the best fit. This can include browsing websites, reading FAQs, or speaking with them over the phone.
Be knowledgeable about where actors fit into the whole casting process.
Familiarise yourself with the following terms so that you approach any agency meeting with confidence:
Talent: The actor (so, you / your child)
Commission: The percentage of your payment that your Talent Agent will receive for having found the job. Normally 10-20%.
Membership Fees: The upfront or yearly fee payable to the Talent Agent to organise your photos and online casting profiles etc. Note: not all agencies charge membership fees.
