When are they filming?

How much does it pay?

Pay is $80 for eight hours with overtime after that and a $25 bump if your car is booked.

How do I submit?

Send an e-mail to with "FLEXIBLE KIDS" in the subject line. If you're submitting more than one child, include them in the same submission.

Include current, clear photos – one from the waist up and one full length. If you have a professional head shot, you must also send some candid photos showing each child separately and wearing a neutral outfit.
