    Casting agencies - kid models?

    hi - has anyone had any experience with being approached by a casting agent?

    a woman approached me at the mall yesterday and wants me to enrol my son (22 month old) into her casting agency. sounded like they had done some good commercial work etc.

    but is this ok, not a scam or anything is it?

    you can give it a go as long as they DON'T ask you to pay anything. DON"T EVER pay for anything. when you go to their agency, when they ask you to fill in the form, ask upfront whether you need to pay. if they say no, then you can give them your contact, but try to give them a voicemail service or sth, just in case. once they start trying to convince you to take a course, or so anything that involves YOU PAYING WHOEVER, leave right away. & bring someone with you & your child, preferably a male friend or your husband.

    real casting agency don't ask their talents to pay for "training" "getting jobs" or "agency fees". their clients, who's getting the commercial made (the product) pays for everything.

    my sister used to work for a casting agency & i did a little commercial work myslef. so i know.

    Yes, you never need to pay any money to casting agencies. All of my kids are doing modelling and we never paid before. Kids modelling industry isn't that popular in HK (I was told) , but once you get into it, it is good money.
