Universal City, CA (PRWEB) July 6, 2008
Fabulous Flashcast, the number one entertainment service for young children and babies in the nation says that new parents do not need to spend literally thousands of dollars on portfolios, head shots, comp cards or zed cards! They accept regular home snapshots, taken by the parents, with the guidance of Fabulous Flashcast, of course!
C.Carranza, CEO of Fabulous Flashcast since it's inception in 1988, says... "I meet industry new parents constantly that have gone out and spent literally thousands of dollars on a portfolio, and now they're baby looks completely different...casting directors, photographers and talent agents need to see how your baby looks now, not when you shot this elaborate useless portfolio".
Carranza further states, "the problem is a lot of these so called 'management companies' that claim to work with babies, are simply making profits off selling pictures not booking jobs...managers are not licensed talent agents and, in the State of California, cannot book work legally unless they carry that license and a Surety Bond. So, many of these 'photo mill' companies simply get around the Talent Agency Laws by stating their managers and not actual talent agents. Licensed talent agents are not allowed to charge their clients for photography of any kind...managers can get away with it"...Carranza states. "It's easy for new parents to be convinced by these bogus 'managers' their kiddies need an elaborate (pricey) portfolio", adds Carranza.
"You have to understand, every parent believes their child can 'make it' in show biz, of course they do, they're the parents...their child is the best thing since sliced bread!!... I know my daughter is", says Carranza.
"Our goal at Fabulous Flashcast is to give them an objective opinion of their child outside the bubble of being the parents (or grandparents!)", adds Carranza.
This company's specialty is placing selected new children with dedicated hard working talent agents, licensed by the State of California, and who carry $50,000 Surety Bonds, as well as being franchised by the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) or members of the Association of Talent Agents (ATA). Once they have retained an agent for the child, they stay right there with the parents during the entire duration of the contract with the agency, doing what they call all of the new parent "hand holding", which apparently is a 24 hour job. "Most talent agents do not rep children under the age of (5) ...says Carranza...that's why we even exist". "We pre screen and pre qualify the parents and children for the talent agents we work with. Talent agents love our service because we (not them!) handle of the new parent communications. That way, the talent agents can focus on one thing, submitting our kiddies for work!", Carranza further states.
Fabulous Flashcast clients have booked many major projects, including, Huggies, Pampers, Stride Rite, Old Navy, Baby Gap, Verizon, Gymboree, Disney, BabyStyle, Kodak and the list goes on!
Fabulous Flashcast is currently seeking bright new talent, with wonderful stable caring parents, to be submitted to top talent agencies in Los Angeles! Simply email them a cute snapshot of your child and they'll give you an honest objective opinion of whether or not they think your child has potential in this industry or not. They apparently have quite a rigorous screening process parents must go through to considered for the one of a kind service. Carranza concludes by stating, "If talent agencies were not getting kids from us that were booking, they would have absolutely no need for our service, period."
The company has also announced a new Reality Show for TV, which will be focusing on young children in show business, is coming soon!
