THE OBLIGATIONS OF THE PARENT
7) The Parent agrees to keep their child’s profile page up to date with all unavailability dates including examination and holiday dates within their profile and remove them when they have passed, and to check sizes regularly and submit their height regularly on their profile. The agency does not send reminders – web profiles show parents of their child’s status at all times and displays an ‘expired’ sign when images are out of date and need replacing.
The amount of work an artist is booked for would depend on many factors. It is important to understand it is the client and not the agency who chooses the models & talent for their campaigns. No agency can therefore guarantee work and any who do should be avoided.
Some artists are booked regularly, some occasionally, whilst others may not be so lucky. We do however have an extremely high percentage of our children & adults out daily on shoots and auditions and can guarantee that we submit all those to clients when they are suitable and match the brief. We also ensure professional, ethical representation at all times.
We typically receive over 30 briefs a day (including weekends!) so as long as you have up to date photos and sizes you will be seen by our clients. We want our children & adults working as much as they do, that is where we earn our money! Artists can see how many clients have viewed their profile and receive notification when they are submitted for work.
9) Upon receipt of confirmation of payment, the Company will send the Parent a confirmation and password. The Parent must contact the Company if this confirmation email is not received.
10) The parent understands that they are responsible for their page being kept up to date and viewable to clients. Should their page expire, the parent then has 6-months to fully update, after which time they will be permanently removed. In exceptional circumstances and with prior notice, the agency can arrange to put a page on hold and extend the deadline. A child’s profile being dormant for 6-months with out of date with images should be deemed as not wishing to remain with the agency. Once a profile is removed it cannot be replaced, the model will need to reapply. Basic detais are retained on file for those who have featured in campaigns, for us to refer to for repeat usage payments.
i) The parent understands also that they are signing to a Talent Agency who also deal with model work.
11) The Parent agrees to:
a) Ensure that the Child arrives on time for all bookings.
b) Ensure that the Child is accompanied by a parent/guardian at all times during a booking, unless specifically agreed otherwise by the Company.
c) Limit the amount of people attending the booking with the Child.
d) Ensure that their Child behaves in a polite and professional manner during bookings.
e) Contact the Company immediately in the event of the Child’s illness or any other emergency situation that prevents the Child from attending the booking.
f) Ensure the Child attends the booking with clean hair, face, nails and clothing, as per your booking confirmation details.
g) Ensure any job record forms provided by your booker are fully completed on the day and returned to the Agency no more than 3 working days after the booking has taken place.
h) Ensure that they, or their children, do not display poor or rude conduct towards Company staff, other Children, other Parents or Clients. This would include inappropriate correspondence to the agency, or derogatory reference to the agency, agency staff by a parent/child to any third party, in writing or verbally. Breach of this clause will result in immediate removal from the agency system without negotiation.
i) Ensure that all unavailability dates are entered onto their profile without fail and removed when passed.
j) Although we are not a sole representation agency we must insist that any ‘self’ advertising of children on industry websites (KCCP, Casting Networks, Starnow and similar), the child must list Bizzykidz London as their agent and all paid work achieved should be booked through our bookings office as usual.
k) The parent agrees to not contact a client directly under any circumstances, or for any reason.
l) The parent understands that if they are auditioned by a client via Bizzykidz Agency then that job must be handled by Bizzykidz Agency and the parent and/or client cannot liaise directly without agency inclusion. The parent also cannot nominate another agency to handle any resulting booking from that audition, nor can they represent themselves.
m) Not use our images for any other form of promotion, be it private, or via another agency. Any person found to be in violation of this term will be invoiced for £150 copyright purchase; which if not paid within 28 days will result in removal from the agency without negotiation.
