How busy is busy season?

How busy is the busy season (particularly for the kid brand new to the business)? How much guidance should/can you expect from an agent? Is it common to only hear from them when there's a casting? I'm not sure if a lack of communication is normal?? So lost lol

How busy the busy season is for you depends solely on your child. If your child has the right look, you will sure be busy! During busy season, some very busy kids can have up to 3 castings a week around november for that month. Some kids usually have about 5-9 castings a month during busy season. You should not really expect much guidance from your agent especially during busy season because they will be even more busy! They will not be calling you up to chat about whatever it is you want to talk about. Usually, they will solely call you when there's a casting, hold, or direct booking. They will tell you what you have to know about castings when they send you on one (what you have to wear,...) It's hard to really tell how busy someone will be, you just really have to wait and see. The busy season is just starting out, so don't be shocked if you only start getting called by mid-October! If your agent hasn't called you, it's because your child isn't right for any castings at the moment. If your child really does fit, don't worry, they'll call (they work to get paid too!). Good luck and RELAX! If it's right for you, your time will come.
