If your child has a modeling audition, then you can be sure the casting director will ask your child if they like it. Prepare your child adequately by asking them this question before going on the audition. Talk to your child about what models do. The child who books this job will be the one who walks in the room confidently. All clients are looking for a person with enthusiasm for their product. Here are what children should do in the guidance of their parents as they prepare for a modeling audition
Help Your Child Find the Right agency
As a parent, do your homework on several kids modeling agencies and take advice from friends who may have used agencies before. You will find that there is plenty of child modeling and talent agencies out there. Finding the right one can be a monumental task. Alternatively, check out some reviews online or in parenting forums. Try to keep an open mind. Contact those you feel might be a good fit and have a chat with one of their agents. Get information about fees and their process for signing up children. If they’re eager to sign you up over the phone, then be wary since agencies that do this often have many children on their books, and the chances are they’re just after a signing up fee.
Practice with Your Child
Often when walking into the room, the casting director will ask your child a question or two to see their personality. Practice with your child before arriving at the audition. This will ensure that your child shows their personality and that they are not shy or introverted. As you practice with them, hug them whenever they make remarkable improvements. Learn to appreciate them. Tell them they did a great job and promise them some ice cream when they do well at the modeling audition. As you help your child prepare, keep the whole experience fun, and don’t dwell on what they could or should have done and said. Auditioning should be a positive experience. It’s your role to keep it positive and fun.
Guide the child to create a portfolio
After finding an agency that feels right for your child, it’s time to get your child’s portfolio sorted. You need to understand that agencies will require a professional portfolio, as this is what they will use to put your child forward for jobs. Some agencies have a few local photographers they prefer. The outstanding ones will arrange your portfolio shoot.
Closely evaluate the terms of an agency before signing
There is nothing wrong with modeling school for your child. Ensure the list of children modeling agencies you are choosing from offers modeling classes so the child can become a good model. Most of the top modeling agencies require that a model goes to modeling school before being signed. If an agency states that your child does not need to sign up for classes before representing you, you might choose to look elsewhere.
