Do you see children in TV commercials and think your child could do better? Does your child love performing and dream of becoming a star? From beautiful babies to talented teenagers, children all over the world are employed as models or actors. Some of them earn more in one day than their parents earn in a week. This practical handbook is for anyone thinking of entering the world of child modelling and acting. In easy steps, it will tell you: how to find an agent; how to prepare for auditions; what to expect on a photographic shoot, film location, or television studio; how to make one job lead to another; how to cope with success and handle problems.
Janice Hally is a professional scriptwriter and has specialised in children's drama. She has extensive experience of casting and working with child actors both in television and youth theatre.
Before you start, there's a guide to help you to assess if your child is suitable for the different types of work. The book then takes you step by step through the process of putting your child forward for modelling and acting jobs.
It covers photographic modelling as well as acting for television and film and is full of interviews with professionals giving their personal experiences. You get a really good picture of what it's like behind-the-scenes in the business.
It even has advice about how to help your child cope when their modelling or acting career comes to an end.
Lots of practical advice. Especially helpful check lists at the end of chapters which summarise everything, making it easy to pick up and find the important facts when you need them.
An excellent reference book and an interesting read.
