What is a Comp Card?
Composite Card, or a Comp Card in short, is one of the oldest marketing tools used by actors and models, similar to a business card. If your child wants to get cast in any project for TV, theater, film or fashion, they NEED a Comp Card. Without this basic item, your child will most likely not be taken seriously in this industry.
Why are Comp Cards important?
Child modeling and acting is a competitive business based on first impressions. Casting directors and modeling agencies aren’t just looking for talented and photogenic kids. They also pay attention on a strong up-to date portfolio, as well as a comp card that shows child’s ability to portray a range of emotions and characters. A professional comp card says that your child takes this business seriously and will be a good casting choice.
A comp card is what your child will bring with them to auditions and castings so that they can leave the casting director a very powerful reminder of what they look like, what their stats are, and most important, how to contact them for a callback.
