Modeling and acting for children extends to as many markets as it does for the adults. The opportunities are many!
Some of the areas Angie’s Kids work in are catalogue, print and television.
Catalogue models appear in flyers, special booklets and catalogues and these children earn from $55 to $85 per hour. These bookings are based mainly on the kids’ sizes. The children are usually booked for their “look” rather than their size. These photos may be used in many different venues, such is billboards, posters or toy packaging, and models earn $85 per hour plus a usage fee if applicable. Lastly, television modeling includes TV commercials, series, movies and music videos, and kids are hired based on their look and their talent! Rates for these jobs are negotiated through the actor’s union ACTRA.
Angie’s Kids encourages parents to help kids become involved in activities and any training, which will promote self-confidence. With the dedication, enthusiasm and support of those around them, children can develop into outstanding individuals with successes both inside and outside the industry.
