How to Join

We specialise in obtaining castings for feature films, short film, television, commercials (inc still photography), musical theatre, stage, cruise work and music videos.  Please note, we are not a modelling agency and therefore, if this is something you are looking for in particular, then I would recommend joining an agency that specialises in this field.

We believe that the Agency/Client relationship should be a joint partnership where each side works together in order to get the best opportunities possible.  We pride ourselves on assessing each applicant individually to ensure that they get the best representation and we have the confidence in them that they have the necessary skills and abilities to meet the requirements of the jobs we find.

AUDITION PROCESS
These days, Casting Directors request self-tapes for initial auditions for their castings for convenience purposes.  We have adopted this method for our audition process, however, if you prefer to audition in our Studios we would be happy to arrange this (however, this may delay the application process due to time constraints) .

To apply via self-tape audition, we ask that you send the following to talentagency@appas.co.uk:
(Tapes should be filmed against a plain background in landscape mode with good natural lighting – facing a window or filtered light).

 

  1. A self-tape introduction.  Imagine the camera is your audition panel and that you are introducing yourself to us.  Be as natural  as possible (if accepted we may use this on your online profile so you can introduce yourself to Casting Directors/Agencies).  Things to include: introduce yourself, your name, age, height, where you are from.  Then talk a little bit about yourself - what  experience you have, what you enjoy most, have you had any relevant training, what your hobbies and interests are.  (Try and  keep this reasonably short and to the point – no more than 3 minutes). 

    For young children, parents/guardians may wish to ask the questions and allow the children to answer in their own words.  You could ask some fun questions like what is your favourite toy or food and why.

     

  2. A tape of a monologue/short poem (if you are looking for acting jobs).

    Again, for young children it may be easier for them to sing a nursery rhyme.

     

  3. A tape of you singing a song of your choice, either with or without music (if this is relevant).  If you play an instrument, you may like to sing along to this.
     

  4. A tape showing your dancing ability (if this is relevant).
     

  5. If you have a showreel containing this detail, we would be happy to accept this instead.
     

  6. Finally, could you complete the Questionnaire and sign the Agency Agreement (click on the buttons below to download) in order that we may move forward swiftly with your application if you are accepted.  (If you have a copy of your full CV that would also be very useful).

 

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

Once we have viewed your audition material and are happy that we can work together, we will e-mail you confirming this and will send you a copy of our Agreement to sign together with a questionnaire if we need additional information.

WHAT ELSE WILL WE NEED FROM YOU?

The best answer is, as much as possible!  Up-to-date head shots are a must (photos taken of you 10 years ago aren't going to give us the best representation of you now).  Stills of work, links to audio and video clips are really useful too if you have them.  (These can be older if this is all you have.  We will decided whether to use them in your profile or not).  The more information we have about you the more we get to know you and what you are capable of and the easier it will be for us to create a great profile for you.  This also ensures that we submit you for jobs that are relevant to you.  We do not have any desire to send you all the way to a casting only to find that it is not applicable to you. This not only causes you an inconvenience but it makes us look unprofessional too!
