QUESTION:

Hello, My name is Deetra Roland and I have WONDERFUL 4 YR OLD SON... HE ALWAYS PLAY BACK HIS MOVIES THAT WE DVR AND HE KNOWS THEM WORD PRE WORD EVEN THE MOVEMENTS AND THE SOUNDS IS THERE ANYWAY I CAN START STEP BY STEP TO GET HIM IN SOME KIND OF AUDITION.

ANSWER:

Yes, there are auditions all the time for 4-year olds in Los Angeles. Get a list of acting agencies with a kids department and mail his picture with a cover letter inquiring about representation. Let them know he is motivated. That's one of the most important things at this age, along with the ability to follow directions. In the meantime, you can create a profile for him on Actors Access and LA Casting. Both websites are cheap to submit and you can set e-mail alerts when an audition comes up for his age range. You won't be able to see all the professional castings like an agent can, but there are quite a few auditions that are viewable by the public with low-paying acting jobs that can help him get a little experience. As a precaution, never include your address on your profile and use your cell phone as a contact number. For tips on kids headshots, see these tips. The most important is the picture has good lighting and that your child looks natural (ie. like a kid). Hope he has fun. That's the most important thing!
