Frequently asked questions - Parents/Teens
What happens at audition?
The audition process includes a very quick Ice-breaker session, an acting workshop, brief singing workshop and a short dance class to determine dance ability. The whole process lasts aprox one hour.
When will I know if s/he has been successful?
We appreciate this is a tense time so we try to let you know as soon as possible. You would certainly have an outcome within 3 days.
Once my child is registered with the agency, are they guaranteed work?
I am afraid not. Agencies are unable to guarantee work, as we have no idea whatsoever what work will come in from one day to the next. However we can guarantee to work hard on your behalf to find you appropriate work.
Will we get a contract?
Yes there will be a contract between yourself and Herts Talent.
What happens once my child is registered with the agency?
We will put your child forward for all assignments your child meets the criteria for. When a client contacts us to ask to meet your child for a casting or book them for a shoot, we will contact you immediately. Sometimes we might contact you beforehand if the client requests us to do so to confirm availability or clarify a specific detail. We will not contact you each and every time your child is submitted for work. It is obviously crucial that parents continuously keep the agency informed of any changes. Children's height changes all the time and should be updated to ensure your child is not put forward for roles that would be inapporriate.
What Commision does the agency charge?
15% on all bookings. Clients pay the agency and the fee is passed on to clients with the commission deducted. Payments are not made by clients immediately but we will ensure you receive your payment within 7 days of us receiving it (often much sooner).
Does my child / teen need to be on Spotlight?
