What is a Character Artist compared to a model?

We are looking for Characters who are real people with interesting and quirky looks that stand out in a crowd .Confident, outgoing, colourful personalities and adventurous sense of being.

(If you are looking to be a model doing fashion and ramp work we recommend you contact one of the Model Agencies in your area)

Is there a guarantee that everyone in the agency will get work?

We guarantee that we will market/recommend your Portfolio for all the shoots where your description matches what they are looking for.

The final decision is out of our hands and made by the client making the advert.

Why choose Character Wize as opposed to another Agency?

Our commitment to best practise provides our clients and members the benefit of a wealth of experience, reliability, professionalism and peace of mind.

Will it improve my chances by joining more than one agency?

You can’t be with more than one agency at the same time – if you are with more than one the client is too busy to resolve any questions about which agency is representing you – they will rather look at other talent and disregard you.

How do I sign up?
