Modelling with Kite
We do not have a current casting call.
We tend to open castings twice a year and our next opportunity is due to launch around the end of March / early April.
If you are interested, keep an eye on our social channels where you'll find all the information once it is published.
We typically look for little ones aged around 6 months old, 2-3 years and 6-8 years, to fit our sample-sized clothes.
Below you will find some information about our shoots that you might find useful.
My child is the right age but not quite the right height, should I still apply?
It's really important that your little one is within one of our required height categories as the clothes are samples made in one size only and they need to fit beautifully. If you're unsure how to measure your child accurately, please see below. We'll also measure your child if you're invited to casting so we can confirm their measurements.
How do I measure my child accurately?
The best way to measure your child is to get them to stand against a wall with their heels touching it, then ask them to look straight ahead. Place a book or similar item flat on their head until it touches the wall and make a mark at their tallest point. Then get them to move away from the wall and using a tape measure, measure the distance from the floor to the mark. This should give you an accurate measurement.
I don't live locally; can I still apply?
If you live close to Dorset and are happy to travel to attend the casting day as well as the shoot days, then please apply and we will consider your application.
Will I hear from you if my application is unsuccessful?
Yes, we contact all applicants to let them know the outcome of their application.
What if I can't attend the casting day for any reason?
Once invited, please do let us know as soon as possible if you can't attend. If after the casting day we still have gaps in your category we'll get in touch to arrange an ad hoc casting session with you.
What happens at a Kite photoshoot?
We want to make sure that everyone who takes part has fun and enjoys their time with us and that we get some great shots. If selected for the shoot we send you lots of information before the big day to help you and your little one prepare and we have our team on-hand to answer any queries you may have.
All of the selected children will be needed for various amounts of photos over the days they attend. We also ask some children to film short video clips (for example twirling around or jumping). There is ample rest time which can mean there is some waiting around in between shots. Once we have achieved all of the images and film clips we need with your little one, we'll let you know so you can leave. Occasionally we may need your little one for longer than the originally stated time, if this is the case, we'll discuss this with you to see if you're able to stay.
Parental involvement - We ask that parents/guardians are hands-on both at casting and the shoot. A parent/guardian must stay at all times (due to safeguarding/licencing requirements) and be available and happy to help.
Do you have any special measures in place due to COVID?
We continue to monitor the current situation and always look to ensure good hygiene measures are in place. We will ask you to confirm upon attending that you are not experiencing any COVID symptoms. Anyone who tests positives for COVID will be unable to attend.
