Q). What makes Kamera Talent successful?
Our agency is the only agency in Canada that specializes in representing youth. Our team of agents are dedicated to developing and nurturing the talent on our roster, and recognize the special partnership that exists between families & agents. We pride ourselves in a selective screening process which ensures that each and every actor on our roster has the talent and team behind them to succeed.
Q). What are the fees if any?
Kamera Talent requires our actors to register for a variety of web services which are necessary for agents to promote talent. The rates for these vary from $100 - $200 each. All actors are expected to continue adding to their resume with acting training, as well as provide updated headshots at least once per year.
Q). Are professional photos or training required?
Professional photos are not required to apply, however a professional headshot is required in order to promote any actor properly. Toronto photographers charge between $165 and $450 for a photo shoot, and talent can determine which photographer is right for them based on their budget.
Q). Kamera Talent is in Toronto. Do you consider those from outside Toronto for the agency?
Kamera Talent only accepts talent who live within 2 hours of Toronto as most of the work is done in the Toronto and surrounding areas.
Q). WATCH OUT! READ THE WARNING SIGNS
The talent industry can be intimidating, especially when you are just starting out.
Be very cautious of the following:
- Companies that charge $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.)
