Child actors and Models need a diverse portfolio. Consequently, cute headshots alone will not impress casting people.
Kids casting need to see Character. As a result, portfolios that are diverse and full of character will have an opportunity to be cast more.
Diversity is key
Kids Modeling demand character, not just pretty faces.
Films and projects have characters, people who cast Kids Modeling are looking for children to fill those roles.
There are many castings for projects and other kids modeling shoots for a diverse number of character types.
More castings an actor or model gets, means more experience and connections.
Therefore, more experience and connections can lead to larger gigs.
That is why I say; “Kids Modeling demands character”.
Kids Modeling demands character
The “Gangsta” series of shoots show strength, grace, and beauty. They hint of an Age Past.
These are great Character shots to be the tough gangster or even a dancer struggling to get by.
Only a well written script can decide which it really is.
These shots are an conversation generating addition any actor comp cards.
Attention is Essential
In the entertainment industry there is a “Need” to have something in your portfolio that is an attention grabber, other wise you just blend into the noise.
Actors need something that makes them stand out, so they are remembered.
You want something that will “Entertain” or “Shock” casting people.
