Model & Talent Representation
Carolyn’s Kids is connected with agents and casting directors worldwide, with international bookings and callbacks from such casting centers as New York and LA. We represent children from newborns to 12 years of age and are currently seeking new faces aged 3 years old and up for our roster.
The work that is available for our kids is in catalogues, television, movies, commercials, flyers, fashion shows, brochures, various print campaigns, industrial videos, music videos and much more.
Not all kids have to be your typical super cute kids. Kids of all shapes, sizes and ethnicity’s can work in this industry. Have a look at the kids used to represent companies in most print ads and television advertising. They all range from cute to character. This is a competitive business, and although we cannot guarantee assignments, a high percentage of our models/talent are securing work. Kids can make anywhere from $50.00 per hour and higher depending on assignment. Kids can make up to $30,000 for one commercial. Carolyn’s Kids will notify the model/talent at the time of booking.
A flexible schedule and good personality is an asset. For children 8 & under there is no training required. For kids 8 & over acting classes/workshops are a good idea to help gain confidence and experience. This can also be done through school theatre and performances. Clients and photographers are basically looking for outgoing and direct-able kids.
Carolyn’s Kids will work closely with you to market your kids and educate you to be as successful as possible!
