Q. Is there a fee to join your agency?
A. No we do not charge any joining fees.
Q. How does the agency earn money?
A. We earn money by keeping a percentage of each job we secure our models.
Q. Can my child sign with other agencies?
A. No, we have recently changed to being a sole representation agency. Meaning any child that signs from July 2023 may only be signed with Willow and Wisp and no other agencies.
Q. Does my child need a portfolio?
A. No, we do not require a portfolio to join. We ask parents to take good quality pictures against a plain background. However, we do recommend those aged 4 years and up get professional headshots done. This will help make their model cards stand out against the competition. We can recommend some fantastic photographers who offer updates for children.
Q. Do you accept everyone that applies?
A. No, we are very selective and will only accept a small percentage of children
Q. Will my child need to miss school?
A. Yes, shoots and castings may take place during school hours so you must be happy for your child to miss school.
Q. Will my child be guaranteed work?
A. No, unfortunately we can not guarantee work. However, we do like to keep our books small to give each child a fair chance of securing jobs.
Q. When will my child be paid after a job.
A. The model is paid within 90 days of completing a job
Q. Does it matter where in the UK we live?
A. No, as long as you are happy to travel. Most jobs and castings take place in London but can be anywhere in the UK.
Q. What is a child performance license?
A. Children under the age of 16 need a license to work. If your child gets confirmed for a job then Willow and Wisp will apply for a license.
