Depending on the role, the Production and the Production Company, sometimes parents are asked to chaperone their own child(ren). Some productions book our chaperones, some use chaperones they’ve known for years and others will want parents.
It is important for us that you know your role and responsibilities as a parent chaperone.
- You will need to complete a record sheet throughout the day. You will need to make a note of when you arrive, when your child goes on set, when they have a break and when production wrap. This is very important and will need to be accurately completed incase the Council do a spot check on the Production.
- At the end of the day you will need to sign a chit for yourself (as a chaperone) and a chit for your child who has been booked for the day of filming. A chit is usually a pink form where you will need to write down your start and finish time, it will also have the breakdown of payments on there. Chits are sent to us for invoicing and when we receive payment we will pay it into the account with the provided bank details.
- Take a copy of child performance license application. Production should have copies as well but it’s best to take your copy too.
- Know when your child needs a break and what their working hours are.
- Don’t wander off from the set / location / waiting room. It is important that you know where your child is at all times and to make sure they are ready to go on set
