10. Agency (G.Next only)
RiRi Productions – Generation Next! Is NOT a chlidrens agency, we believe a child’s intention with G.Next! should be to learn and to have fun.
Occasionally RiRi Productions (The agency) takes part in work where children form part of the cast, and if we feel that the specific engagement will be enjoyable and have a benefit to the child other than a financial one, then we will consider our students taking part. In this instance parents will be informed privately, and their children’s participation will be entirely at the parents discretion, prior to the child being notified.
We must stress that we do not believe in encouraging any child to feel that a career in the arts is an easy one, or that work as a child will mean work as an adult. We therefore aim to keep professional engagements, for any child, regardless of how talented they are, to a minimum, and will only allow our students to participate in professional engagements on the basis of fun and learning.
We understand that this is not an opinion shared by everyone, and if you would like your child to be represented in a manner that see’s them working more often, we are happy to advise as to which is the correct route to take.
