Applying To AKP Management Agency For Representation
AKP Management Agency considers applicants from anywhere in the UK and abroad. However, clients must be able to attend all auditions when they are offered. These can occur with very little notice. Auditions for commercials, film and TV productions nearly always take place in London and, less commonly, in Manchester.
AKP Management Agency doesn’t set out their recruitment process publicly. If you are thinking of applying, please follow normal industry practices. Apply by sending a photo, covering letter and CV, either through the post or by email.
Abi Kingsley-Parker is the main contact for child and adult castings. The email and office addresses are on the the website.
If you are seeking representation with AKP Management Agency, think and plan carefully before you get in touch. First impressions count:
Use the covering letter to set out why you want to join the agency, and what you can offer. You are trying to join a boutique roster, consequently you must have experience, looks or proven talent that sets you apart from the crowd.
Make sure you address the letter properly, to a named recipient. A parent should send one on behalf of their child.
The CV must list name, age and location. Include any credits for paid and unpaid work. If you don’t have any, include shows you have done at school or as part of your drama classes.
The photo, covering letter and CV must not be large files; photos cannot be larger than 2MB and you should aim for less. Many recipients in the industry delete large emails without reading them. If you don’t know how to reduce file sizes, ask someone for help.
Choosing The Right Photo To Submit:
Your photo does not have to be a professional headshot. However, it must be a clear picture that clearly shows your face. An outside shot on a cloudy day gives perfect lighting for a clear picture. You must look straight into the camera and keep your hands out of the way. Also, no one else can be in the picture and the background should be neutral.
Try to liven up your eyes by pretending you are looking at someone on the other side of the lens. In addition, imagine you are going to give them an important and exciting piece of news.
The most important thing is for the photo to show what you look like in real life. If you walked into the room with a group of other people, the photo should be good enough for a stranger to pick you from the crowd.
