Do you have a cute baby with a zest for life and laughter? Of course, all babies are amazing, and you might have even considered getting them in to modelling. You might be surprised to learn that casting for babies isn’t much different to other casting. Well, with less lines of course!
If you’d like to get your baby into some acting work and share their smile with the world, here’s how it all works.
Start with registration
Firstly, you need to find a reputable casting agent to work with. Here at Casting Kids, we’ve built a strong reputation with both parents and clients over a number of years. We represent children of all ages and abilities, and promote diversity in the children’s modelling and acting. The first step is simply filling out an online registration form, together with a picture of your baby. You can also mail a form to:
PO Box 2411
Hawthorn VIC 3122
Attending an interview
Once we’ve received and looked over your registration form, you and your baby will be invited in for a meeting. It’s not something you need to feel pressured about, but we love meeting families. It’s a simple meeting where we’ll discuss your goals, get to know you and your little one, and explain our processes for you.
What happens next?
We should mention that we don’t represent everybody who applies. As we charge an annual registration fee, rather than a percentage of earnings, we don’t feel it’s ethical to collect registration fees if we don’t think we can represent your child. Unfortunately, casting for babies is a tricky business. Through experience, we’ve learned what casting directors look for. If we don’t think we can find work for your baby, we’ll be honest and upfront.
If we do choose to represent your baby, we’ll book in a time for a professional photoshoot with your little one. They’ll also be given a profile on Casting Networks. From there, we begin suggesting your baby for suitable jobs.
Do you guarantee work for my baby?
Unfortunately, we aren’t able to guarantee work. Directors of each project will conduct the final casting for babies, and they make the decision of who they hire. We do however work tirelessly to promote your child to all suitable openings in the industry.
