At Bizzykidz HQ we offer a whole array of ways to enhance your child's page and help with promotion to clients. These are ALL optional. Appointed studios are only able to offer update appointments, except for Norwich who also offers filming and a few appointed studios who offer Character Cards (see their studio booking page to confirm if they do).
ALL artists can add video to their profile when logging in (see below)
The easiest way to enhance your profile is to fill up your profile with 9 images and not just the 4 required images.
Video can be added and we highly recommend it as clients request only those with video to be submitted alot of the time. You can upload your own video footage using the facility when you log in to your profile. The more to offer a client then the more variety of work you will suit.
Artists do NOT 'need' to have any extra services to secure client work, these are merely options we offer to 'help' enhance profiles and give them an 'edge' over other agencies. Many children work regularly with usual images and no additional services added.
Includes a full agency assessment & 4 x agency required images. All artists are photographed & assessed by an agency booker and images supplied. All artists are required to update with the agency yearly at any one of our studios across the UK - excluding under 3's who can you use their own images and should observe their expiry date within the image upload section to ensure they are up to date & adults who can use their own professional images.
This is the easiest way to enhance a profile and a self tape is the best to choose (short video of child stating name, dob, saying they are with Bizzykidz Agency and then chatting about hobbies, interests - Younger kids can use any footage of them you like). Many clients ask agencies to submit only kids with video footage for many briefs, so please consider this option.
Over 3's on our Tagmin system please add video links to the 'weblinks' section on the profile.
Upload videos of anything you like; examples below but you can create your own ideas. Anything to show your child and bring your profile to life
1) Informal chat to camera about themselves - audition style (do not read a script, speak naturally)
3) Accent examples
6) Performance footage
Babies and toddlers can be filmed playing, laughing etc.
You can even video tv commercials/campaigns your child appears in and upload those for clients to view.
There is an annual fee of just £10 to activate the facility and add several links. You can also change your videos as many times as you like during the 12 month period - especially great for the little ones who change rapidly. We advise that you change the video as they change to show clients how they look 'now'.
All videos will appear on lightboxes sent to clients and if you have a model card will also be linked to that from your profile. It auto plays on your profile too when a client views it.
NOTE: You are able to upload your own video onto your agency profile, which does not have to be professional. You are unable to upload the video directly to the profile, but instead you wiill need to add it to youtube and then copy and paste the URL for your video into the 'Edit Profile' and then 'Video' page of your account. Of course, a professional film is going to be better! This can be uploaded onto Youtube as 'private' with only those with a link allowed to view it if you prefer.
To upload media to your profile, log into your profile and click the button below 'edit profile' called 'Activate Video/Voiceover Facility’. Then 'edit profile' and go to the video page, paste the url into the box and then save details and return to dashbord to view your video. The video will appear below your details.
If you wish to keep your video private on youtube then when adding it please change the settings to the option where people can view it only if they receive the URL and not the public.
If you are wanting to use this for voiceover, please film the artist reading to camera and upload as video footage and not audio. The client can then hear the voice!Younger ones can consider uploading footage of them crawling, toddling, giggling, or anything fun that they enjoy doing, or fun videos you have captured of them at home.
For the serious photographic model. Over 4's only and within 1.5hr travel distance to London.
A separate publication the agency uses, for the more 'editorial' clients. To be seen by these clients more prominently and to upgrade to this you must have 1 x high res digital head shot photograph (colour & copyright free, size 800 x 800) and the photo must have been taken with a couple of months of inclusion so it is current. The photo cannot be changed once included.

Model cards are digital cards, emailed to clients to print off, forward to 'their' clients and are linked to any video/audio footage on the agency profile.
The Model Card displays a collage of images and is uploaded into slot 3 on the profile. Model Cards can only contain professional photos and are produced by our IT company and attached to our client software and any video footage.
Model Cards cannot be amended, once images expire it is deleted and needs to be replaced.
Please note, model cards are a part of our software system, if you create and upload your own image collage it will not work on our software!

Bizzykidz are a Spotlight Agency.
Spotlight is the bible for many producers/casting directors when selecting talent and is an optional extra for 4yrs+ looking to further their career in TV, Film, Commercials, or Stage.
Bizzykidz deals with many clients directly and by other methods. However, a selection of clients will only use Spotlight and insist only those listed on Spotlight be submitted for selection. This is another way of promoting your child and them not missing out on some of the briefs which they deal with exclusively.
