Many parents email the agency with worries about hidden costs, such as paying registration fees, and worries about professional pictures, what a child can earn, and concerns about the Spotlight fee (over 4 years only).
We make a yearly registration charge of £55. This equates to around £1 a week.
The charge is made for the maintenance and administration of your profile, portfolios and database details on our website.
Once you have registered one child with us, we will register any others for free. You will be able to set up a variety of Different Portfolios.
We receive many audition requests for siblings, kids with parents, families and couples. You can create portfolios for all these categories and update them as required. at any time and FREE of charge.
Anyone over the age of 4 years who is serious about acting needs to be registered with Spotlight.
It is the go-to destination for casting directors and production companies who are seeking talent for their projects. Spotlight membership will enormously increase the casting and audition opportunities available to your child.
You must child must be a least 4 years to join. Membership costs a little over £100/year and is highly recommended.
When applying to any agency, professional photos are not needed. A couple of clear mobile pics showing your child making eye contact are sufficient.
In order to compete within the industry, children coming up to the age of 4 and expected to have professional pictures. For children under the age of 4, it is not obligatory, however, in order to to get your child noticed, it is a good idea.
The competition in child modelling is intense and the website portfolio is your shop window. Professional standard pictures will show off your child to their very best making it easier for a casting director to make a choice. A portfolio consisting of a few mobile pictures is not going to cut the mustard and you child will stand little chance of ever getting chosen.
So, if you are serious about child modelling, get some professional standard photos taken to create an eye-catching portfolio. This can be a family member or friend with a decent camera. If you decide to use a professional, expect to pay between £50 and £200 depending on the number of pictures chosen.
After registration, we invite you and your child along to gauge their reaction to having pictures taken in a studio.
It is important for us to know how a child reacts in a studio. There's a lot of strange flashing lights, noise, and strange people to cope with. Most kids absolutely love the attention but there are a few who are very apprehensive, some even burst into tears. If that is the case, then obviously ta career on the silver screen is not for them!
If all goes well we will supply 5 professional photos from the shoot FREE OF CHARGE to kick start your child's portfolio.
When you upload the pictures to our website, you will also be able to design your own model card. These can be printed out and taken along to castings and auditions.
Let's put the kids to work and retire to a villa in the Canary islands!!
Retiring on your child's earning could happen but it is very unlikely. To be quite frank, do not sign up with any agency with the idea that you are going to make £1000's per year. The truth of the matter is that by the time you have been to multiple castings and deducted travel expenses, time spent etc, there will be very little money left.
However, if you are doing it to expand your child's horizons and abilities, that's a different matter and could possibly lead to great things later on in life.
