All talent have yearly assessments with The Agency before submitting for castings and bookings. We only submit talent that are suitable for your casting requirements. We also run TV Acting Masterclasses at The Agency for all our artists to attend a 6 week course with The Agency, where they are trained over a 6 week period and filmed by the agency's TV Production Crew for on screen experience. A copy of their footage can be viewed in the artist's portfolios.
We look after all the children on our books, never undermining our children and their welfare, which is of the utmost importance. All talent under the age of 16 will need a Performance Licence to take part in TV, Film, Commercials, Voiceovers, Modelling and Theatre work.
Applying for Licence: What next?
The Children and Young Persons Act requires that all children under the age of 16 apply for a licence to take part in performance related work of any nature. The Agency hold on file all the relevant documentation required for all the children currently represented by us and will be happy to help you obtain these licenses in any way we can. Most local boroughs require 5 - 10 clear working days to apply and issue a licence, but we do work with friendly boroughs that can turn around a licence a lot quicker.
It is the client’s responsibility to apply for the Performance Licence when booking a child for a job, but should you wish The Agency to apply on your behalf, please do not hesitate to ask when making a booking and we will be happy to do this for you.
Client’s must fill in and sign a Part I and email to The Agency at the time of confirming a child for a booking. The parents will fill in a Part II and these documents, a copy of their Birth Certificate, a note from the School authorising time off and a recent hedshot will be sent to the child’s local Education Welfare Officer for processing.
