We accept people from all walks of life, ages, ethnicities, sizes and shapes. In fact, most clients want ‘real people’ and ‘character faces’, so as far as we’re concerned EVERYBODY has the right look!
If you can approach each job with an outgoing, relaxed and fantastic attitude no matter the situation, then you’re exactly what we need!
Yes you can, but ONLY if you hold a VALID VISA with WORK RIGHTS.
If you decide to join our talent agency, you can only be with us. For us to represent you in the best way possible, you can't be signed to another agency at the same time. Most agencies if not all, will have this exclusivity clause.

YOU PAY NOTHING UPFRONT
WE DEDUCT YOUR JOIN FEE from your jobs that we book you on.
This means you can join us immediately!
Yes, we charge 20% including gst on all jobs we book you on and it's deducted from your quoted gross rate.
For local TV shows, rates start from minimum wage *GROSS per hour and up. For commercial, photography and film work, the rates vary and can be from $180-300 GROSS per day or up to hundreds or thousands of dollars per job.
*GROSS RATES are always quoted for jobs which means BEFORE commission and tax is deducted.
Depending on the type of production, this can take anywhere from 2-6 weeks.
Bear in mind, that the payment timeframe on each job is different, and is dictated by whoever is paying the talent fees to us.
However, as soon as the funds hit our accounts, you are paid ASAP.
We don't hold onto your pay until the next month or when ever the next set payrun date is.
YOU ARE PAID as soon as WE RECIEVE IT.
As an extra or actor working for Fresh talent, you are considered a 'part-time self employed' contractor. This means you can claim certain expenses against any schedular payments we pay you. It also means you have to file a tax return and then ACC will send you an invoice for their ACC levies.
We strongly suggest you seek professional advice regarding your IRD and ACC obligations whilst working with us.
