DD has an appointment next week with one of the "bigger" agencies in NYC, in the Commercial Youth Division, and I was told it would only take a few minutes. Do they usually take the child in without you? If they're interested, will they ask to see me, too? Or not necessarily. If they don't bring me in, is that a sure sign that they're not interested?
I was also told to bring more than one copy of the headshot/resume. Why is that?
How old. Dd was 5 for her meetings. They took her in alone for 20 minutes without me and never spoke with me at all. Top child agency. I was never called in and got a call a few weeks later.
She's 9 already, and we're just starting out. Thanks for the info., it will help knowing that we may not get a call for weeks, even if they're interested.
My daughter was 9 years old when she met with agent. They came out, gave her a few monologues for her to memorize and asked her to come in by herself. They were in there 15 minutes. Agent came out and wanted to speak to hubby and I. Once it was all said and done they asked us to call them the next day. We called the next day and were on hold for 5 minutes (seemed like a lifetime), they told us they wanted to rep her. While my 5 year old (4 when she started) was signed while we were there.
Best of luck to you and your little one. Knock their sock off!
Sounds like a great experience, kouklaface! I have faith in my dd's talents, but she's not all that great at memorizing sides/monologues in only a few minutes time. This will be a challenge for her (one we expected, because I know that this is how it works a lot of times).
Anyway, thanks for the well wishes! Fingers crossed.
You could practice with commercial copy at home so shes used to it? Also practice her asking for time to read it over...
