I Want to Do Commercials
Toronto & Montreal has a tremendous market for actors, Toronto as it is known as Hollywood North! Commercial rates are set by a union called ACTRA, who ensures that actors are paid residuals based on the amount of people who would see you on air. An actor can get anything from $500 for a day shoot to $10,000 after residuals, and can be easily 5 times this amount for a commercial that airs in the USA. And further buyouts can happen depending on the product, the actor, the length of time on air, etc.
Angie’s Talent Inc. has opportunities for ages 3 to young adults and various types of people in their talent division. If you want to get into commercials, the first thing you should do is come in for an audition/appointment at one of our Model/Talent Searches, to evaluate your potential and advise you on training requirements if necessary.
