HOW TO APPLY

Please send 3-4 clear & recent photos, your location & contact details to - happyfeetmanagementbookings@gmail.com along with your childs name, date of birth,
theatre /dance schools attended, hobbies/interests/skills & anything else you think is
relevant to your application. If you do not hear back from us within 14 days your
application has unfortunately been unsuccessful. Please do not be disheartened by
this response, when taking new children on to the agency we take into consideration
who we already represent age, looks and talent wise and we don’t like to be
over subscribed in any areas.


WHAT HAPPENS IF MY CHILD IS ACCEPTED?

If we wish to take your child’s application further, the next stage is to invite your child
into our studio for an assessment photo shoot to see if they enjoy it, how they interact
with a team of people they do not know and to give you an idea of how the industry works.
We will inform you on the day if we would like to offer your child a place on our agency books.


DO YOU CHARGE ANY FEES?

The Agency is regulated by BIS (Department of Business, Innovation and Skills) and does not charge a joining or registration fee. However should your child be accepted onto the agency after the assessment all new clients over the age of 1 will need to have high quality up to date head shots taken by our professional ‘in house’ photographer which is £100 for the year (this includes reshoots throughout the year). Newborn babies and up to 1 year £50 for the year (Parents will be required to supply their own photographs regularly to the agency).

It is compulsory for all children over the age of 4 to join Spotlight


WHAT IS SPOTLIGHT?

Spotlight is an online casting directory which features profiles for young performers from the UK's leading agencies. It is the UK's definitive platform of performers aged 4 + and the best way for any young performer to promote themselves to casting opportunities around the world. Only children who are represented by an approved agency are eligible for Spotlight membership and is a MUST if you are serious about acting and modelling.

An annual membership costs £100 which is paid direct to Spotlight . Please take a look at their website www.spotlight.com for further details.


A FEW THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE APPLYING

• Babies and toddlers should be comfortable going to strangers, happy and content in front of the camera and not easily distracted.

• Children and teenagers MUST be happy and confident in front of the camera, be able to take direction from someone they have never met and well behaved .

• Generally all castings (for school age children) are after school hours between 4-6pm and babies/toddlers can be any time during the day.

• Nearly all jobs undertaken are during the school day. Please do not apply if you are not happy for your child to miss school or if your head teacher is not prepared to authorise the absence.

• Please be aware that we are normally only given 24 hours notice for castings and they are mainly in Central London.

• Please consider your availability to take your baby/ child to a casting at short notice.

• We are a sole rep agency. Please do not apply unless you are prepared to leave your current agency.
