anyone knows pano ko ipapasok na commercial model mga babies ko kasi sobra cu-cute nila mana sakin hehe
hi! want to share with you this information with regards on kids modeling.
HOW CAN I MAKE MY KID A COMMERCIAL MODEL? First of all, ask your child if he/she wants to be one. Let's face it, we're all frustrated models in our younger days so we want to achieve the same dream for our little ones. Let's not get too pushy or worse, get angry if he refuse to cooperate, can't get her act together on cam or doesn't get chosen. If all's well, get an Agent. Below is a list of agencies. Call and say you want to get your kid into modelling or you want your make your kid their "talent", then take it from there. No need to beat the bushes. Agency people are used to these kind of calls. They get it everyday.
HOW CAN I GET IN TOUCH WITH CASTING AGENCIES? Below are tel nos of Casting Agencies in Makati. Check out the link I gave. Call them first to know schedule of VTRs for kids. Some have certain scheduled days for Kid applicants, usually Saturdays. I was once advised not to sign a contract or make your kid exclusive to 1 agency. I'ts not a guarantee they'll build him up, and it will make you miss opportunities with other agencies. Just let them do VTRs for that agency's file. check out :http://www.taophil.com/members.htm

HOW DOES THIS BUSINESS WORK IF THEY CAN'T CHARGE MODELS? To my understanding ( I hope Smarties on this business can contribute infos), a modelling agency is tasked by an ad agency to pool models for a project. The modelling agency sometimes pre-select candidates and the ad agency's client makes the final choosing as who to cast in their production. Sometimes, an ad agency will task more than 1 modelling agency to find them models. Now, who ever gets the part, the agency of that model gets 30% commission from the client. This is how modelling agencies make business. They earn only when their in-house models gets to be casted. That's why they need to pool lot of models or applicants & keep a VTR & photo of those models in their file. The more models, the greater chance for them to get commissions.
WHAT DO YOU DO ON VTRs? For applicants, you come in on a scheduled day (although most agencies accepts walk-in anytime). You will fill up an info sheet, they will take a video of you standing and talking about yourself a bit (name, age, hobbies), they'll take your picture whole body, 1/2 body and close-up. This they will keep for their file. If an ad agency is in need of a character with your looks, the modelling agency will call you up for a casting along with other qualified models. A schedule and place will be given for this "audition" and there, they will again take a video of you, sometimes, with a script. You will find yourself in competition with other models to get that part. Mas matagal ang casting call kasi parang audition yon eh. dami niyong nakapila.
WHAT ABOUT BABY/CHILD MODELS? This goes the same with casting kids. Although babies and younger kids can't talk yet, they'll just shoot them smiling, playing & crawling for the Agent's file. On casting calls, they'll video them with training cup, in diapers, laughing, in specific clothes, whatever the script requires. Kaya if your kid can sing a Barney or Sesame Street song or do a Hi-5 move, she better learn to show it off in front of the camera na. You'll get to know that you got the part when they call you a few days after the product VTR. The agencies don't reveal the product and brand they're producing. And they need a few days to review the videos of the audition and select their models.
WE AUDITIONED SO MANY TIMES, THEY DON'T PICK MY KID Same here. Eto yung nakakainis na part. Because if you don't get a call for final casting in 2 working days, it means you didn't get the part. Try again next time ka. It's not your agent's fault. The most they can do is to inform you of as many opportunities/casting calls there are. It is the Ad Agency's client who picks the model. It's tiring and most of the time, frustrating to go to auditions. It's true if you live far from Makati, but for those excited and proud parents, no mountain is too high. Remember, it all starts at 1 small step. And all models start this way.
REMINDERS FOR STAGE PARENTS: Mahirap ang casting call for kids. Kasi mainipin sila. It would be best if you come earlier than the call time para kayo ang una sa list. What I do if we'll be late, pag malapit na kami sa VTR place, I call my agent to sign us in para by the time we're there, malapit na kaming tawagin. Some agents are present on the casting call (yung mga free-lance agents). Yung mga top agencies usually walang representative sa venue. I also bring toys to keep my kid busy while waiting for our turn. And please, kung pwede, kayong 2 lang ng anak mo ang pumunta sa casting call. I've seen so many times na 1 lang yung kid model at kasama ang buong pamilya, complete with ate,kuya, yaya at Lola! Please lang, ang hirap nang makisiksik sa ofc ng agency pag maraming bata (parang day care) mas madami pa ang matatanda, eh maliit lang ang VTR room. Ask Mommies Jesica & Jhen, we have been to the same audition for a diaper commercial at San Antonio Village, Makati, wala ka nang magalawan sa loob ng ofc at hindi na kaya ng aircon ang dami ng tao. I know it gets the whole family excited when you get that call from your agent for a product VTR. Pero please naman, wala pang contratang pag-aartistang naghihintay sa inyo, audition pa lang po ito. OK? Kami ni Hubby, we don't tell our folks when our daughter is called for casting. Kasi baka hindi siya ang mapili, madisappoint lang ang buong pamilya.PERSONAL NOTES:
Still, kahit wala pang break ang daughter ko, somehow she benefits from the workshop the director gives on final casting. On final casting they let the selected kid models play together muna and get comfortable with the setting. Tapos pina-practice ang acting or pag-sunod niya sa instructions before the shoot. After the final casting, the client will pick the kid for the part. Wait ka ulit 2 working days for the call if you made it
