Children and the Film Industry - Overview
When performing, Child Models typically work irregular hours. You will have no choice on when the shoot takes place and must be ready for anything.
Child Models should ideally be fit and healthy – the job demands certain stamina and also coordination to move about the set. Child Models must also expect some degree of heat from lights and the weight of costumes.
Formal dramatic training is generally unnecessary for Child Models, and most kids successfully enter the field without it. Child Models should possess a passion for performing and enjoy entertaining others. Versatility and a wide range of related performance skills, such as dancing, rollerblading, cycling and horse-riding are especially useful.
Physical appearance, such as possessing the right size, weight, or features, is a deciding factor in being selected for particular roles.
