How casting works

Every baby will be considered for the commercial and will be presented to the director and the client and they will make a decision as to which babies will be in the finals. CleverBabycasting does not have final say as to who gets chosen. If your baby is registered with an agent please let us know so that we can notify your agent of you participating in these auditions. Scouted babies will be represented by CleverBabycasting.

If your baby has been selected as a shortlist / finalist, we will notify you via the telephone / cell phone numbers /email address you supply us with. (Please ensure that there are two good contact numbers and that these numbers are correct).

If you are shortlisted or selected as a finalist you will need to come to a call-back at a studio so that the director and client can meet you and see your baby in person. You will need to bring a copy of their birth certificate to the callback. For newborn babies a clinic/birth registration card and the parents ID will be acceptable. These documents are needed to apply for a permit from the Dept. of Labour for them to be in a commercial. We will also need a letter of permission from you. All this is done only if you are selected for the callback.

If your baby is chosen you will need to be available for the shoot dates.

For each advert they choose a different amount of babies. If chosen your baby will get paid for each shoot day they are used. All artist’s no matter their age get tax deducted by SARS. You will need to get a Tax number for your baby - but only if you get booked on the shoot. You will get an IRP5 for any deductions made.

We understand that babies are very precious and every effort is made to make the shoot environment as comfortable and relaxing as possible for both the baby and the parents. The maximum time we are permitted to have a baby at the shoot is six hours and only three actually filming.

In some of the adverts we see a mom or dad in the commercial with the babies. Should the ad require a parent and if either parent is happy to be in the ad with their baby and gets chosen, the parents would also get paid (and taxed) for each shoot day they do.

Further details on payment, contract etc will be given to artists requested to attend the callback.

Any scouted artists will be asked to confirm that Cleverbabycasting can act as their agent for this commercial only and get a 10% comm off their fees for scouting. If you are registered with an agency then notify us so that this can all be processed through them.
