Set Protocol (MANDATORY)
This class is designed for Parents of minors and teens over the age of 15; younger children can sleep in. We are also committed to giving inexperienced actors and models the opportunity to book paid assignments through Talent Link & ExtrasCasting.US. The purpose of this Mandatory class is to educate & equip our talent with correct set etiquette skills. Talent who sent to set must be informed of updated industry paperwork, tax laws, SAG rules, and child labor laws to avoid costly mistakes and maintain our agency work ethic which has earned us a great reputation with our clients. Because of our high standards of sending professionals to represent the agency we require ALL talent, whether beginner or seasoned actor must complete our Set Protocol class before we will send you on any future assignments. These measures are due to the potential harm that misinformed talent can cause to the agency, themselves and our clients.
