HELP YOUR CHILD TO GET AHEAD
According to Kids Inc Casting and Model Agency in Cape Town, your child needs to meet the following key requirements:
They must be presentable with clean hair, nails and clothing. Unless the brief says otherwise, your child should be neatly dressed and wearing shoes to the casting session.
They should be self- motivated and have energy and enthusiasm. “There are countless wardrobe fittings and rehearsals, even over the weekends – warns Natasha Brickman, owner of Kids on Camera.
They should be willing to put some of their own needs aside for the duration of a shoot. Your child might have to miss out on some of their hobbies and events such as birthday parties.
They must respect the terms and conditions such as confidentiality. They might be privy to information that’s not yet public.
They should speak well. Even though your child doesn’t have to be an English first- language speaker, they need to be familiar with the language.
