Many parents email the agency with concerns about hidden costs
Before joining any agency the following costs need to be considered
- Website Registration Fees
- Cost for Professional Photography
- Spotlight Fees
Registration Fees – £55/year or £10/month
Parents are advised that, despite badly informed chatter, most of the reputable child talent agencies charge a fee to be on their website. This charge is for database maintenance and website inclusion in line with BIS regulations.
We charge a registration fee of £55.00/yr or £10/month. The small monthly subscription is an excellent way of finding out if the industry suits your child and you are able to opt out at any point by dropping us an email.
Add Brothers & Sisters – FREE OF CHARGE
Once parents have set up a profile for one child, they can set up other multiple profiles/portfolios FREE OF CHARGE (subject to approval). This is useful if you have another child, twins, and siblings
Professional Headshots £50 to £250
There is no requirement by the agency to use our recommended photographers. However, if you do:
- You will receive 2 FREE professional headshots for your profile
- Additional pro pics can be cheaply bought
- The typical spend at the studio is £150 to £250
- You will receive an honest appraisal of your child’s suitability
NB – Casting directors and production companies expect to see professional standard pics of children over the age of 4 years.
Spotlight Fees – £118 per year
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. Your child must be a least 4 years old to join. Membership costs a little over £100/year and is highly recommended.
