To all parents: The state of California wants to charge you up to $50 to obtain a work permit! If you agree with us that this is unfair and puts an undue burden on the families of children seeking work as actors and background please do the following IMMEDIATELY:
Write a letter INCLUDING ALL OF THE FOLLOWING to:
The Honorable Ian Calderon
Assembly Member, 57th District

I am writing to you to state my opposition to bill number AB344.
(state why you are opposed to paying for a work permit. If you think it is unfair to single out children working in the motion picture industry then say so. If this will put a burden on your family then say so. If this would prevent or discourage you from renewing your work permit then say so.)
PLEASE FAX this letter immediately or at the latest by Friday to the following:
Also fax copies to:

Kids! Management is the premiere background management company in Hollywood focused on providing minor aged children as background talent for the entertainment industry. We are always looking for newborn babies and kids interested in working on television, feature length motion pictures and commercials.
What We Do
Kids Management coordinates the needs of casting directors with children from the age of 2 weeks up to 18 years old that are ready, willing and able to work on set doing background (18 years and older should contact our adult subsidiary, Extras Management, at ExtrasManagement.com). Our work requests are primarily for rolls on TV, motion picture, and commercial film production in the greater Los Angeles area or anywhere Hollywood demands. Some of the recent projects we have worked on include but are not limited to:
|Scott Towels||The Middle||Spiderman|
|Target||Desperate Housewives||Wild Hogs|
|General Foods||Criminal Minds||Green Hornet|
|Hyundai||Law and Order L.A.||X-Men|
|Wells Fargo||Kickin' It||Blades of Glory|
|Verizon||The Office||Night at the Museum|
|X-Box||Disney Wizard||Lincoln Lawyer|
|Coca-Cola||CSI Miami||Judy Moody|
|Nintendo||Children's Hospital||Little Fockers|
Our track record for placing kids together with casting has made Kids Management the stand alone leader for children’s background listing services in Hollywood. We are the most established and reputable company of our kind operating today. When selecting a management company to represent your child for background work, compare our results and reputation with those of other children’s companies and you will find us to be the best choice to get your child working in Hollywood.
Although we are the largest company of our kind, we cannot in any way guarantee employment opportunities for your child. We simply submit your child's "look" and availability to the casting directors making the decisions and then coordinate the job details if they are chosen to work. Once registered your child is submitted for work on a daily basis subject to the needs of the industry and what is filming today.
We look forward to the opportunity we have to help your children follow their dream!
