APPLY TO JOIN US
Rising Talent Agency has been running for four years, introducing models and actors across the UK and Ireland to incredible opportunities. Across our three branches- Belfast, Dublin and London- we have successfully secured our talent paid work in the world of TV and Film, Musical Theatre and Voice Over. Their work has been part of productions broadcast on HBO, Netflix, Channel 4, BBC and CBBC and beyond.
We believe in finding and embracing new talent and encouraging professional development in the friendly, family feel atmosphere that our agency is known for.
After you have fully completed the online application process and submitted all supporting files (videos/photos), you will be contacted directly via email by a member of our team if we want to take your application further. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to contact those whose application won’t progress to the next stage. The application and sign-up process is completely free, the only cost you should be aware of is the fee associated with getting a portfolio/headshots captured by a professional photographer. These will only be asked for if you have been successfully accepted onto our books. We can recommend a competitively priced package from our professional photographer and the photos will be yours to own.
Find out more about our team here.
Regrettably, we cannot accept everyone onto our books. You must go through the application process and be reviewed by our team before finding out if you can be represented by our Agency.
We welcome applications from actors aged 3 years+ across our three branches- Belfast, London and Dublin.
We are committed to representing a diverse range of actors, of all abilities and backgrounds on our books. Experience and training isn’t necessary, we are looking for raw and natural talent, specifically for acting on screen.
Unfortunately not, we are a sole agency so all professional work must come through our agency once you are on our books.
There are no upfront fees or costs for being represented by the agency. A commission will be taken on any jobs you have successfully secured once represented by us. If you are signed up to our agency, you will be responsible for paying for professional headshots and we recommend a membership with Spotlight also.
For the first part of the audition process we would love to give you the opportunity to send us a self tape for consideration.
Please find sides (scripts) within the following dropbox link:
Each document is named applicable to different age categories and genders. These should be learned off by heart for your audition and delivered in your own accent and as naturally as possible. Please bear in mind this is for delivery on TV/Film as opposed to Theatre.
Before performing the scene the Artist should introduce themselves by saying their full name, age, height and location. Please also tell us a bit more about your experience in acting and please also let us know of an email address so that we can contact you during your introduction.
You should film this performance and upload to this dropbox link:
Audition tapes sent in any other way will not be accepted.
NB – Please read notes on tapes and follow the steps.
1. Artists should shoot in a mid-shot. (Head, shoulders and a good bit of the chest/arms)
2. If shooting on a phone, please shoot landscape (sideways) and not portrait.
3. Artists must have a reader just off camera. This could be a parent or friend reading the lines of the other characters in the scene.
4. Reader should read opposite in their own accent.
5. Reader should be quieter than Artist as he/she is nearer to the camera. The reader should not be seen.
6. Artist should shoot the sides in a place with a neutral background. Cream/White is the best colour for the background.
7. Artist should have lots of light on their face so that we can see them correctly.
8. Artist should dress appropriately for the character.
9. Video Files should be labelled with the performers name when uploading to dropbox.
