Kamera Kids are so successful because of their great personalities, great skills, and great agents! All of our Kids have been professionally trained in our special weekend workshops to prepare them for this business. They are taught how to win an audition, acting techniques, as well as what to expect on set with clients. And since you, the parents, are such an important part of our working relationship, all of our Kamera Kids parents participate in a workshop on how to manage and nurture their child's career. Our agents and our instructors are the best and most experienced in the industry.
While there is no guarantee of how much a child might earn, modeling can certainly be a great way to start a savings account for your child!! TV Commercials usually start at about $1000 and can earn a child further income through residuals - a payment based on how often and where the commercial is shown . A U.S.A. national commercial can earn an actor over $20,000 and a recurring TV role can be $40,000 - $80,000 and so on.
Kamera Kids Talent is located at 174 Spadina Avenue, Suite 100, Toronto, M5T 2C2. We are on the West side of Spadina Avenue, just north of Queen Street West in downtown Toronto. Parking meters and lots are located on Spadina north of Queen Street.
The talent industry can be intimidating, especially when you are just starting out!
Be very cautious of the following:
Companies that charge your child $2000, $3000, or even $7000 for lessons as a condition for work in L.A. or Disney Shows.
Companies who guarantee work
Companies who advertise that they cast for international television shows (fine print: they have casting agents in town, who have casted for Disney shows in the past – not that they are casting for Disney shows at the moment.)
Companies who state that work is only done after school, or on the weekends
