Once you have fully read our FAQ page including our T&C's, hit the 'apply to Paris Kids' tab and begin. You must have two high resolution photographs to hand. A simple guide on how to send the correct photos can be found here.
Do we accept everyone who applies?
No! Our books only open for a few months per year and once we have enough children to cover all ages, abilities and looks, our books will then close. We will work with the children registered to help gain as much experience and work as possible in the Entertainment Industry.
Does Paris Kids Talent Agency charge Fees?
Should your child be accepted to join the agency, we do not charge registration fees, however you will be asked to become a member of Spotlight for Young Performers, which is currently £100 including VAT for one year. Children must have head shots taken with our agency at least once a year, please speak to us about our recommended Photographers. Parents are welcome to send in their own additional shots throughout the year, which are held on file for clients to view upon request.
What is Spotlight?
Spotlight features profiles for young performers from the UK's leading agencies and theatre schools. It is the UK's definitive platform of performers aged 4-25 and the best way for any young performer to promote themselves to casting opportunities. Young performers can join any time after their 4th birthday via their Agency link. Productions cast via Spotlight include feature films, west end musicals, tv dramas, commercials and so much more - for example The Zookeeper, Game of Thrones, Dr. Who, Harry Potter and The Cursed Child, Matilda! and School of Rock – to name but a few!
Do you take commission?
The agency earns commission from paid work. We take the standard 25% commission on all fees (excluding travel expenses). It is therefore in the agency's best interest to secure your child work where possible. We also encourage Kids to audition for unpaid work to gain invaluable experience in the industry, as well as attend Workshops and Events throughout the year in London and the South East.
Once my child is registered, are they guaranteed paid work?
Unfortunately not! No agency can possibly guarantee work, as they have no idea what work will come into their offices, so will never know in advance who a client may select for their assignment. If an agency tells you they can guarantee your child work, then avoid them at all costs! We will however guarantee many opportunities for them.
What type of work am I likely to get?
We can not guarantee any work or auditions, however most recently our clients have been put forward or booked jobs for the following: West End Shows - Matilda, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, Nativity The Musical, School of Rock and Adrian Mole. TV/Commercials include M&S, Cadbury's, Nike, Lego and CBBC. Film including Netflix feature films, short films and educational, corporate filming. Music Videos for Keane and Faber. Photographic including the Sun Newspaper and various Dance Mag modelling. Theatre credits include the English Youth Ballet and many professional Pantomimes, so lots of exciting stuff!
What happens once my child is registered with the agency?
After a successful application you will be invited to join Spotlight, unless you already have an account. Once set up, Paris Kids Talent Agency will put your child forward for all castings, auditions and events they meet the criteria for. You can also be request to join a private Facebook Group where you will have access to regular updates.
