how do i get headshots?
All castings require an up to date photograph of applicants. This 'headshot’ is a clear head and shoulders image, with no distracting background or other people in the picture. There are hundreds of professional photographers out there, but if you are interested in getting professional images for your child please ask us for advice on where to get them.
DO i need spotlight?
Most self-tapes for professional work are submitted through Spotlight. However, we are able to submit individuals for work in some instances.
We can assist and advise as to whether you need to join Spotlight, if required and also help you record self-tapes in our purpose built multimedia room.
Our purpose-built studios are regularly used by professional companies for auditions, rehearsals and filming (Working Title Films, BBC, ITV, Costal Productions, Beverly Keogh Casting, Cameron Mackintosh, The Royal Ballet School, Blue Genie, Strictly Come Dancing).
