Explore Talent has many success sories. He was just an unknown kid eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, watching Nickelodeon, and wishing he didn't have to do his homework. His parents brought him on an audition or two for tennis shoe and potato chip commercials, with little results. He couldn't help thinking, "is this all there is?" He was having a mid-kid crisis. Ten and three quarters, seen every Sponge Bob episode five times, punched various characters in the stomach at Knott's Scary Farm, what else was there to do? Extreme skating stunts? Jump a BMX off the roof into a pool? It all seemed so pointless.
Then it hit him. Audition. Audition for parts that would catapult his career skyward, and straight into the limelight. So what if he was just a kid? That didn't stop Shirley Temple, what did he really have to lose? Mom and Dad were supportive, having already laid out a financial plan for how to spend his money in the event that he would have been picked up for that Fritos commercial, so he was on his way.
At first, they came slowly. The search for a really good audition was at times an arduous one, but he was one determined kid. Soon enough, though, he hit upon a gold mine by posting his photo and profile for casting directors to review. After about two months, he landed a starring role as "Short Pants", the villain in the newest James Bond thriller. He remembered fondly then his days as a kid with no direction, who decided to master the audition, and take Hollywood by storm. Submit yourself and find an Explore Talent kid audition today!

Of course, having an Explore Talent agent or a manager is the best way to go about it but if you don’t have representation yet, you might need to go to a bunch of open casting calls first to get a part. Or equally important is getting noticed by an Explore Talent kid audition director who could recommend you to an agency or management firm. If you blow away the competition in a Explore Talent kid audition, regardless of whether you get the part or not, the right Explore Talent casting director is sure to recommend you to an agent and/or manager. And that is a great thing to take away from an Explore Talent kid audition.
Join Explore Talent for free and help get represented. And then there’s the other way to go out to find representation. Join an acting class or theatre group.
