Post    Post subject: Image size to send to agencies Reply with quote

Keshia and her mom would like to move to either LA or NY for the summer for her to do modeling work.

We would like to send out some images to a few select agencies and wondered what size they require so we can get them ordered and sent out.

If anyone knows the correct size of images please let us know.

Keshia can be seen in the winter edition of Super Models Unlimited Magazine under the Rising Stars which came out Nov 1 to the Newsstands.

Hi,

If you want to send your images to agencies please note that you can contact agencies from our site, and not just through the agency directory but Ford Models is currently casting child talent from the castings page, and a great way to start would be there.

If you are applying to auditions and want to send headshots the best thing to do would we to send 8.5 X 11 headshots.

Post    Post subject: Moving to work for summer months Reply with quote

Dear New Faces,

Ford would be our dream agency if they think Keshia would fit into their program.

I found on New Faces where it gave a physical address for Ford and ask for snapshots.

We really like the images we have on our New Faces portfolio alot better but we mail more snapshot type of images in as they requested. We have those also.

Keshia has soft long cruly hair but in some of the images it has been made straight so we will send both curly and straight hair images.

We would like to move her for the summer months so she could work. She is an A student in school and if things were going really well for her at the end of the summer she could be home schooled.


Thank you so much for your reply.

Barb and Keshia

Hi,

Many agencies and casting agents prefer mailed in submissions, which is why we do not offer a direct electronic submission. Your New Faces images are great so you should print comp cards of your images (we hope to offer them through our site soon, in the meantime you can find them through the internet, just search for comp card printers).

Then just send those comp cards to agencies on our casting page. Remember to always include your NewFaces link in your cover letter.

Regards,
The New Faces Team

Post    Post subject: Applying to Ford Reply with quote

We went to the Ford Website to try apply online but when we put in Keshia birthday it blocked us from applying. She had to 13 and she only 11.

We are getting our images, cover letter and resume together now and will mail it to the address listed on New Faces website. I put the snapshot images at the back of her New Faces portfolio.

We will send in the snapshot as they requested.

We will include her New Face's website in her cover letter so they can visit it online and see the nicer images along with the snapshots of her.

Thank you so much.

Hi,

That's great, and please note that Ford does have a children's division, so you should definitely send in your headshot and resume.

We are currently building more connections with child talent agencies and will be bringing you even more of the leading agencies in the industry soon.

Post    Post subject: Information sent out Reply with quote

Hi,

Yesterday we got our information and snapshots sent out to a few of the agencies.

We did some research and several of the agencies do not take children so we sent to a few select agencies that do have children.

We let you know if anything happens.


Thanks for all your help.

That sounds excellent. We are also making even more child talent agency contacts as we speak and will be sure to forward you their information as we receive them, as always they will also be in the agency directory.

Best of luck and keep us posted.

Hi Sarah, Andrew and Taylor,

Sounds like you had some wonderful projects and we so happy things are going well for you.

We are in the middle of Wyoming so it hard to get alot of projects and that is why we trying to get an agent and move for the summer.

Keshia was in the Super Models Unlimited Magazine that came out Nov. 1 with a two page spread in a section called Rising Stars. That was exciting and gave her two tear sheets.

She won first place in the Halloween contest on * so she is the Snap online Dec Newsletter that came out yesterday. She won alot of prizes in the contest so that was really fun for her.

But other than that project wise we have to get out of Wyoming so she can work.

We may have messed up we sent in 4 by 6 picture's to the agencies. But if we send out any more images we make sure they are 8.5 by 11.

Thank you so much for responding.

Barb and Keshia

Post    Post subject: Hi Sarah Reply with quote

Good Morning Sarah,

We have sent out information to four agencies. It has not been very long ago that we did this so we just have to see if any of them are interested in Keshia. As for moving to LA or NY we would move to either one depending on where they think her looks would go the best. Plus we would be willing to make a trip to have them meet her ahead of time.

Living in Wyoming there is little or no work for children. Everything we have done has been internet based.

I do have a question.

It has not been very long ago since we mailed her information out but do they let you know one way or the other?

Hi Sarah,

I hope Taylor gets her film that you are working on. That would be so exciting.

We really appriciate all your help.

We did mail to four agencies and we just have to see how things go. Two of the agencies were looking for child models on New Faces.com We did put her New Faces website on all the information to all four of the agencies so her web page could be viewed online.


She does sing and has a beautiful voice but we have never had her voice recorded. She sings at weddings, funerals and has opened a few conventions and ballgames. We going back east in a couple weeks and she is singing at a wedding.

But we are really looking more at the modeling to start out.

Post    Post subject: Different Roles Reply with quote

Hi,

Just as a tip, please check the castings and apply to different roles, such as theatre, voice overs and films. Even if you are mainly interested in modeling, having a high profile play, movie or animated series on your resume can open a lot of doors.

Best of luck!

Post    Post subject: Age on casting calls Reply with quote

We noticed Seventeen Magazine had a casting call with the age range of 14-20.

Would it be inappropriate to show up to a casting when you are younger than the age stated?

Keshia is 12 but has a large age range depending on how she is dressed and made up.

If you will be in the New York area we would suggest that you try the casting. The age difference is ony two years and you never know unless you try. More can always come of the audition as well.

Let us know if you go, and how it turns out, we always like to hear from our members!

We have another project going back East on so we be back in the New York area at some point.

The seventeen casting looks like an ongoing casting call.

The worst that can happen is they think we can not read the age limits on the casting call. But I am sure they have alot of younger readers plus you never know what look they are looking for in their magazine.

Post    Post subject: Question on your Ad for the Ford Agency Reply with quote

We noticed the Ford Agency was advertising for Child Models and we could send the information in online at Ford.com

When I put Keshia birthday into the system it would not let me go forward. (Jan 13, 1995). It put a block on my application.

Keshia can come to either NY or LA for the summer months if selected but I just need to know if you have to be older (than 12) to apply?

Please let us know.

Hi,

Please contact Ford agency if their site is not working (as instructed by e-mail) as they are casting for children.

Best Regards,
