Does your little one just have that on camera personality? Well if you think so than you have probably seen tons of commercials and thought that your child would have been much better for that particular part. Well if this is how you feel than maybe it is time for you to get your child into television commercials. First make sure that this is something your child really wants to do. If it is something that they do not want to do it will come across in any audition. But where and how do you begin? You may not know it but there are dozens of talents scouts all over the world who are on a constant search for new and fresh young talent.
The first thing that you need to do is create a portfolio for your child. What you will need to do is first have some professional pictures of your child taken. They may be a little on the pricy side but if you want your child to land the part than it will be well worth the effort. Many people will recommend that you sign up with one of the area’s top talent agencies. This is definitely a good idea, but you will need to do your homework before you sing any contract with anyone. Just because one particular talent agency may be the most popular in a particular area does not mean that they are the right fit for your child.
More than likely your child does not have any prior acting experience, which is good since natural is always better according to many of the top talent agencies in New York. You need to find an agency that your child and you are comfortable with. Some agencies do not like the parent to be present during the shooting of commercials.
This is definitely an agency that you want to stay away from. They need to accept the fact that your child is a minor and that you will be present at all times to look out for the welfare of your child. The key is to tell your child to relax and just enjoy themselves. Commercials are really not that difficult to get into. If your child decides that they want to pursue acting as a career than that is something that you will probably wan to encourage them to wait until they are older to purse.
