    Unfortunately not, it's down to the client on who they select, all we can do is showcase your child and their skills and prep them for casting and auditions to give them the best opportunity.
  • Can I just turn up at your office to show you my portfolio?
    We don’t accept walk in appointments at Mellows Talent Agency,  you must apply via email when we have advertised that our books are open and we are taking submissions.  Any appointments will be pre-booked by email or telephone with one of our agents.
  • Do you take on disabled children?
    Yes we do! We're really keen to get work for all kids. We are motivated to provideall children with equal opportunities and job successes. However, all the children on our books will need to be in good health in order to get a work license and permission to be out of school, as well as being happy and confident in front of a camera.
  • What will it cost for my child to be involved in the agency.
    Mellows Talent Agency charges a one-off administration fee of £49 upon acceptance of representation. This charge covers all the administration matters related to joining the agency inc. but not limited to the common activities involved in joining a new agency, handover of data and materials, set up of the Artist’s profile on our website and all the relevant guidance in arranging Spotlight profiles etc. This one-off fee is not repeated, no matter the duration of representation. Children aged 4+ will be required to register with Spotlight and maintain their registration, currently £106.
  • DOES MY CHILD NEED ANY TRAINING?
    Mellows Talent Agency considers it important that Artist continue to improve their basic creative skillset and be always ready to audition or work. To that end, M.T.A. runs 4 professional development workshops annually which may include, but are not limited to, acting coaching, singing lessons, dance classes, voice technique and support, auction technique, self-taping technique. Sessions are divided by age – Junior (6-11 years) & Senior (12+) It is a condition of representation with M.T.A. that all clients book for, and attend, at least two of these workshops per year. Workshop charges, not less than 2 per annum, are as follows: Juniors £25 per workshop, Seniors £35 per workshop. This charge will be invoiced at the time of the session.
  • Do I need a professional portfolio?
    No, you don't require a portfolio to apply to our agency, photographs from home are ok. Beware of companies claiming to 'help' or 'prepare' you for joining an agency, they are unnecessary & often unscrupulous.  If your child is accepted we can arrange an affordable shoot with one of our recommended photographers.
  • Does my child require a license to work
    As a simple guide, all children from 0 to 16 years need a licence to take part in any type of media project, paid or unpaid. Licenses are normally issued by the local council for each individual job. It is the responsibility of the production company (who may ask the agency to assist) to ensure that licenses are in place. It is never  the responsibility of parents to apply for these licenses
  • What happens once my child is registered with the agency?
    We will submit your child for all assignments your child meets the criteria for. As and when a client contacts us asking to meet your child for a casting or book them for a shoot, we will contact you by email or mobile phone.  Sometimes we might contact you in advance to check your availability or to confirm details about your child. We will not contact you every time your child is submitted for work. It is also important that parents continuously keep the agency updated with any changes in appearance of the child.
