  • Go Here To Enter. Do your research!! Find out if your state requires modeling agencies to have a license, and if they do, ask to see it. Also, go on the Better Business Bureau website to see if there are any complaints, as well as the Bureau of Consumer Protection. Finally, if they are trying to charge you an upfront fee, that should be the biggest warning sign. Has anyone ever had a bad experience with a company? Or a question about a company that claims to be legitimate, but something just doesn’t seem right? How do you know if a modeling agency is legit?
  • Go Here To Enter. A lot of the questions I receive are very much like this one – where do you begin? Well, it depends on a variety of things: your child’s age, where you live, etc. but the best place to start is your local area – besides TheCuteKid website, of course! To procure agency/manager representation, you really have to live in the area (or about an hour away) in which you would be going on appointments with your child, or be willing to move immediately to where you send their pictures. The talent agencies normally do not represent children under the age of 4 – there is no getting around that, it is a standard industry rule. I had to wait like everyone else – don’t you think I was DYING to get my twins representation before the age of 4 for acting? Absolutely! But I too had to wait, even though I live in the NYC area and have a ton of resources because of the location. So if your child is younger than 4, you should focus on the modeling end of things for now - and whatever open calls you see from TheCuteKid website. Google “model agency your town” and How do I get my kid in the modeling/acting industry? View slide
  • Go Here To Enter. start researching! Call the agencies you find, and ask questions – is there a fee to join, do they have a children’s division, where can you send your pictures? The modeling and acting industries are hard WORK – and once you get representation, it’s even more work going on all of the auditions, callbacks and the preparation it takes. The “overnight success” phrase is a myth, spun by the media to make celebrities seem all that more intriguing. If your child is older than 4 and you want to get them into acting, then you should start having them participate in school plays, acting camp, workshops for kids and that type of thing. Acting takes more of an investment at first than modeling does – you can get away with sending in casual snapshots to a modeling agency (even after joining the agency you can use use non-professional pictures depending on their age), but after a child is past a certain age for acting you will be looking into getting a professional headshot, resume, etc. How do I get my kid in the modeling/acting industry?

  • Free Canvas Portrait. Go Here To Enter. ● Make sure pictures are in-focus and close-up to the face on the head shots – this is the most important rule!! ● No distracting patterns on clothing ● No hats, sunglasses or anything else that covers the face or head ● PERSONALITY, PERSONALITY, PERSONALITY!!! Send two close-up headshots and one full length shot (AGENCIES PREFER NON-PROFESSIONAL PICTURES) with: 1.) The child’s name 2.) Contact info 3.) Date of birth 4.) Clothing size 5.) Height in inches 6.) A cover letter saying where you live and the parent/guardian contact information. If it’s an email, write everything (sizes, etc. ) in the main part of the email together with the parent’s contact information also. CuteKid -Photo -Tips Follow these rules exactly for posting pictures on the CuteKid website or sending to agencies: When an agent or manager is going through hundreds of pictures of children, the ones that will stand out are the ones that are following these rules. ***** GOOD LUCK!!! *****
  • Go Here To Enter. My twin girls had an TV audition the other day for Chuck E. Cheese, which my husband dutifully took them to in NYC. Afterwards, I asked him, “What did they do? How did the girls do?” And all he could do was just look at me and say, “I don’t know.” Why doesn’t he know? Because apparently the girls have reached the age – almost 6 years old – where the casting director takes the kids into a room by themselves (or with other children) and gives them directions on what to do. If you aren’t crazy about giving your kids acting lessons, then how do you know how to prepare them? Well, there is one cardinal rule for preparing kids for an audition or to go and see an agency. MAKE SURE THEY TAKE DIRECTION WELL. Sound simple? It can be, if the child is a disciplined one, or if they are not in a bad or tired mood that day. Let them know that they are going to be taken into a room, and they should listen to what they are told to do, and do it with a smile. Acting - Audition -Tips TV Auditions –What Do They Want?
  • Go Here To Enter. The more you prepare your young child to go and see people, the more they will be ready when some stranger takes their hand and says “Come with me” and starts giving them instructions to do all sorts of things. Also, you can practice with your child “faces” – happy, sad, angry, laughing, crying, etc. “faces” where the child will emulate each one, so when they are asked out of the blue to make a sad face, they can conjure one up without looking at the casting director like they have two heads. Not all of this works all the time because they’re KIDS, but it will help you steer them in the right direction. Do YOU have a CuteKid™? Acting - Audition -Tips TV Auditions –What Do They Want?
  • Go Here To Enter. You always want to make a great first impression, and with video it’s a little more difficult than just taking a photo. First of all, make sure you have the same mentality as when you are taking pictures – film your child several times and delete the ones you don’t think are good. If a child is not experienced in doing video, then the first few times are going to be “warm-ups” until you get something that is worth sending in. And just because a child is a good performer, has had experience on stage and is outgoing, it doesn’t mean they are going to be good on video, being in front of a video camera is a whole different ballgame. And most likely if an agency is requesting video, it is for talent representation, as opposed to only just printwork. Step 1 – the “slate” Practice with your youngster first, so they have an idea of what’s expected. At the beginning of every video, an actor says their name, age and where they are from, it’s called the “slate.” This needs to be said while looking directly into the camera, and with a warm, friendly confidence. Easy? Good, then you have step one down. Except that you need to keep the video camera running for the next step. An Agency Requested a Video of Your Child? That’s a good sign, but what to do now?
  • Do you have a CuteKid™? Step 2 – Asking questions to your child to show his/her personality. Again, not so easy. One word answers are not the answer here…in other words, try and ask a question where your child cannot answer in just one word. For example, ask “Tell us about Grandma’s house…” instead of “Where were you this weekend?” which will give a more colorful answer, as opposed to only just the answer of the 2nd question, which will most likely be “Grandma’s House” or “at home.” Nothing too radical, as the person requesting the video just wants to see more of what the child looks like, and if he/she has a natural aptitude for the camera. Just make sure you child acts like his/her self, but with an appropriate amount of energy, which I’m sure won’t be a problem when filming a child. Just make sure they do not have too much energy, you don’t want people to think he/she is hyper. The video should be at least 30 seconds, and no more than 2 minutes. Usually agents know within the first 15 – 20 seconds if they are interested in representing a child or not. Yes, that fast. Plus, if you send one that’s too big of a file, it may not get opened. Good luck! And if you get representation from following this process, I would love to know so we can write a Success Story about it: CuteKidResume@thecutekid.com An Agency Requested a Video of Your Child? That’s a good sign, but what to do now?
