INTRO

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 upload your own video footage using the facility when you log in to your profile. You can also add more images, or be included in our family section. The more to offer a client then the more variety of work you will suit.

At our Head Office, we offer a range of filming options for all ages. You are able to supply your own films & voiceovers for your page if you prefer to film them at home. 

Artists do NOT 'need' to book 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.
