Please ensure that you understand that the Terms & Conditions of this contract state that artistes will need to fulfil any arranged auditions and assignments held and found through Frank Holder Management  before you can terminate your contract.  This contract states that you cannot approach, contact or work for any of our clients until six months after you have terminated your contract with us.

You must agree to FHMs Terms & Conditions in it’s entirety and provide complete and accurate responses to all the information requested on the registration form and once registered, on your Spotlight and Tagmin Account.   


It is the requirement and condition of Frank Holder Management that all artistes are registered with Spotlight or Mandy.


Spotlight is the main portal where Casting Directors look for clients.  Artistes can only become a member of this reputable platform if they are either young performers or that they are recommended by a Spotight Registered Agent such as Frank Holder Management.

Casting professionals choose Spotlight to cast their projects because performers on Spotlight are recognised as the industry’s best.


If you are not already a member, artistes can apply directly to join Spotlight if you meet their criteria or Frank Holder Management can complete a recommendation form  if you are successful during the interview process and  have registered with us.


Please check the website for how much Spotlight charge for membership which is payable directly to Spotlight. 

Once registered and you receive a Welcome Email from us,  please add us as an agent on Spotlight.

Artistes will be required to update their own details on Spotlight, including measurements, credits, show reels and photographs.

Frank Holder Management have a membership with and we are happy for our artistes to use this platform too.

We will be operating via in the same way as Spotlight and commission will be charged for any projects found using this platform.  Please join and name us as your agent.


Talent Agents use Tagmin to tag together all their admin, streamlining their workflow and linking their world - their talent and contacts - and the assignments that connect them.

Tagmin is the system of choice for both the biggest agencies in the UK and the smallest - and  all the other sizes in between!  It's comprehensive collection of tools, ease of use and low cost is unrivalled, leading to the majority of agencies now using Tagmin.

Once registered we will send you an invitation for Tagmin, it is very important to complete your Tagmin in full and keep everything up to date.

Other Sources of  Work

Frank Holder Management will also source projects outside Spotlight and   This will be done by making direct contacts in the industry, via the Internet and Social Media.  The FHM Team are always on the look out for new projects for their artistes.

Open Calls & Projects - Joining Other Agencies

Frank Holder Management have made some great connections in the industry and many Companies often contact us directly looking for talent.  This is good news for all our artistes as you are more likely to be selected when you attend Open Calls and you name us as your Agent. Having an Agent comes across much more professional in the industry and Casting Directors have faith that Agents will send through artistes of a very high standard.


​If an Artiste wishes to attend an open call or sources work themselves, please ensure that you contact us first to discuss this beforehand.  You must always name us as your Agent and point of contact,  copy us into any emails, send in any contracts and expect commission to be charged unless we state otherwise, Frank Holder Management do expect our artistes to check with us before attending any open calls or auditions.


NB. Please note as mentioned below under Self-Tapes, this includes sending in your C.V., showreels or providing self tapes (this is all part of the audition process).


​When submitting this form you are agreeing to always contacting Frank Holder Management before attending any open calls or auditions and you understand that commission will always be charged unless Frank Holder Management state otherwise.


Additional Agents


Frank Holder Management will agree to their artiste joining another agency as long as that particular agency does not offer exactly the same opportunities as us.  This is because all reputable agencies belong to Spotlight and the agencies would be submitting clients for the same work.  


Joining more than one  agency causes problems further down the line when an artiste is successful and both agents may be in a position to claim commission.  Frank Holder Management are supportive of their artistes obtaining further work with agencies that only specialise in certain areas of the industry only e.g. Modelling, Commercial Dance, Extra Work, Voiceovers. 

Frank Holder Management would appreciate being informed of any intentions to join other agencies so that we can discuss whether this would be in agreement with us and in your best interests.


​Signing these T&Cs mean that you agree and understand that you must inform  Frank Holder Management of any intention to join other agencies.


Artistes are required to have high resolution, professional up to date photographs, these may need to be updated every year, especially if there has been a major change in the way you look. Artistes can update their own photographs on Spotlight. 

Please send us your chosen headshots  for announcement on Social Media and ensure that all headshots are uploaded to Spotlight.  We may ask you to send us professional photographs and any taken whilst working from time to time.  This is for our website and social media and  can be forwarded by we transfer to ensure that the quality is upheld.


Please note, if needed for our website and social media, Frank Holder Management may download these from your Spotlight.  Please ensure that you have excellent showreels on your Spotlight.  These must show all of your talents e.g. acting, vocals, dance, voiceover, accents, languages etc.

DBS (criminal record check) 

It is important that any artiste represented by us, (who may be working with children), to have a current DBS check.  If you do have one of these then please organise and provide us with a copy of your certificate. This is a necessity when you are working with children and advantageous to have as if you are selected for a project, we may be asked to provide a copy, if you do not have one then you may lose out on a project.  A DBS can take up to six months to arrive but they do last for 3 years.


Fantastic news if a Casting Director/Company expresses an interest in you!   Once selected they may request you to audition in person, self tape or send in your Spotlight Link and showreels.   It is really important that you proceed as Casting Directors do remember the agency and name of the artiste and  if you do not,  they may feel that you are unreliable and this could affect the reputation of Frank Holder Management.  Frank Holder management always try their best to submit you for projects that you are interested in, if you frequently turn down auditions this will be considered as a breach of contract.


When auditioning always aim to arrive at least 10 minutes earlier, this will give you plenty of time to find the audition, to catch your breath, to read and prepare anything you may need before you go in to the audition.

Please always take your C.V. with you and a professional headshot.


A tape measure comes in handy sometimes and please ensure you have our contact details to hand. Each audition is different, to be enjoyed, to gain experience and to have fun! 


Auditions can range from a few minutes to a whole day, so come prepared, dressed adequately, all dance shoes if required and with plenty of food and drink! 

Auditions tend to be arranged between 24 hours or within a couple of days. We will let you know immediately we are given a casting, but sometimes we receive a call late in the evening for an audition the following morning. Theatre and stage shows usually give more notice. Bearing this in mind, it is important to think carefully about whether you can give this level of commitment. 

We cannot guarantee that we will be able to gain auditions and work for every artiste on our books, however, we can guarantee that we will make every effort on behalf of every artiste. 

The majority of the auditions are held in London and Manchester, casting fees are never paid for TV, film or stage auditions but may be paid for commercials. Artistes will be expected to pay for their own travel and expenses. After you attend an audition, please feel free to email us to advise how it went. 

Feedback is rarely given after an audition and we are contacted only if given a recall, pencil or an engagement. 

Once the artiste has attended an audition, if they should be offered the job, it MAY NOT be turned down unless there are exceptional circumstances, if auditions are continually refused without good reason, this will be a breach of this contract you will be taken off our books. 

Self Tapes 

Self-tapes are becoming a popular medium in the audition process. Please research tips and read instructions carefully. If scripts are provided for any audition type, please treat them with the privacy and confidentiality demanded. 

Self-tapes should be treated as an audition and are a great way for Casting Directors to have access to an individual when there is limited time, based in another country or to give a clearer idea of what to expect prior to meeting the client in person. 

The script (sides) will be provided along with directions which should be read carefully. Filming can be undertaken on any phone and should be of the face and shoulders only and in landscape mode. An introduction by the artiste is always required, stating name, age and Agent. Read in a natural accent unless requested to do otherwise and if there is another character in the script this can be read by the parent, friend or sibling and must be off camera. 

Try to use natural sun/daylight in a bright room and a plain background. Plain wall/sheet or screen. Always start with an ident, the artiste should act/read the lines to the other person off camera and ignore the camera. 

Please do not leave your self tape to the last minute as if we do not approve your self tape you will need to do this again before the deadline, we cannot always get an extension.

Do not upload video to You Tube or social media as scripts and self tapes must be treated as strictly confidential. Completed self tapes can then be uploaded to Tagmin for approval or you will be provided with the relevant Dropbox.  Sometimes you are asked to upload to You Tube as an unlisted private video.

Title the video with the artistes name, age, part they are reading for and Frank Holder Management.


You must continually update your unavailability on Tagmin, if  you do not keep us informed and we must turn down auditions or work because of this, we may consider this to be an unacceptable refusal of work, and we will send you a warning that we may take you off our agencies books. 

Please also update bank details, telephone/mobile number, your address in full and email address when necessary. 

Confirmed Professional Booking 

Congratulations!! If you are successful in obtaining an assignment, the Casting Directors will contact us to let us know, they should not contact you directly. If this should happen, please tell them to call us and then call us yourself to let us know they have been in touch. 

Frank Holder Management will negotiate the contact and go through the details with you. You may get a call from wardrobe a few days before and the call sheet often the night before. Artistes MUST be polite, well behaved and listen to instruction from the cast and crew. 

When not filming or rehearsing the artiste must be quiet and calm on set or in the wings. Mobile phones are a NO NO on set so ensure you turn off or place on silent, DO NOT ask for selfies and NEVER upload images to social media as this will be in breach of the contract. Also, DO NOT announce anything on social media (unless shared by us) as the artiste may be pulled out of the job. DO NOT change your appearance in any way from the time you are booked (such as a hair cut) Keep travel receipts in case expenses need to be claimed. All in all it will be a fabulous experience for you, so please do your best and enjoy your time on the project.

Payment of Fees 

Payments from Production Companies are sent to Frank Holder Management directly and money is held for artistes in a secure separate account as required by law.


All artistes should upload their account details to Tagmin for payment.



When we receive payment for any artiste, we deduct our commission and pay the artiste the balance.


We charge  between 10% for the lowest paid assignments, 15%  commission  for Theatre , Cruise Ships and Entertainment Resorts and 20% commission for film, television, commercials and modelling.  (If the payment for a particular assignment is very low we may decide to reduce the commission, this is entirely at this Agencies discretion.)


Commission is payable to FHM on the gross rate paid on any assignments and processed directly through our agency.  

Production Companies often take a long time to make payments to artistes - this can sometimes be six months or more. We invoice if required to do so and chase payments as much as possible, but Frank Holder Management accept no responsibility for non-payment of fees due from any Production Company or any Casting Agent. 

Commission Agreement

Sometimes Companies prefer to pay directly, when this happens we will draw up a Commission Agreement before the contract begins and you will need to send in your wage slip/remittance advice regularly.  

Please ensure that you send in your Wage/Slip and not a screenshot of your bank payment as this would not be the gross amount due.


On receipt of this, Frank Holder Management will send you an invoice, this must be paid promptly and if there is any delay you may incur a 2.5% late payment charge on every late invoice.  Failure to keep to the agreement and Terms & Conditions may result in legal action being taken.

Frank Holder Management are not responsible for any international bank charges, the artiste should endeavour to open a bank account that they feel has the best rate of exchange.

Bank Details 

Artistes must have their own bank or building society account and money will be paid directly to the artiste. Please update your Tagmin with your bank details along with your National Insurance Number and Unique Reference Number

Your Details and Data Privacy Under the Data Protection Act 

Frank Holder Management hold personal information for artistes in a secure location. We will use your details only for purposes related to this contract, or as agreed by you or permitted by law, including contacting you with offers of bookings and details of other productions, we are casting for, and about other services related to your bookings. 


If at any time you wish your details to be deleted from our records, please advise us in writing and we will remove with immediate effect.
