The NPAS Agency
The NPAS Agency, which started life 25 years ago in Digges Lane, the original Dance Centre, is still an integral and important part of our school. The NPAS Agency represents our students in Film, Theatre, Television and Modelling work. Our school is contacted regularly by Casting Agents and Directors and we will source suitable students for various projects. If we decide to send a student to an audition, we will get in touch with the child’s parents / guardians and discuss the brief for the particular project. If they decide to allow their child attend the audition, and if the student is successful, The NPAS Agency will look after contracts, chaperones and any other requirements there are relating to the project. We will charge a commission of 15%. This is inline with common practice. All photos taken in Agency Photoshoots will be kept securely on file, and may be used by us in castings. Our Agency has always been a popular source of talent, with many of our students appearing in successful television, film and advertising campaigns.
To Book the Photoshoot please call or email the school, or drop over to reception on Saturday.
The Photoshoot – at The Lir Academy, Grand Canal Dock
The NPAS Agency Photoshoot will take place on Sunday 13th November 2016 at The Lir @ Grand Canal Dock. This is the time when we invite students to ‘come on the books’. This does not guarantee that you will get a part, or even that you will be sent for a part. Each Casting Brief is different, and we can only send our most suitable students. Your photo will be taken by one of Ireland’s leading Portrait Photographers Peter Rowan. You will receive a copy of your photo, and we will keep a digital copy on our files for the year. The Agency is a wonderful complimentary facility to your time at NPAS. The photoshoot is open to ALL Npas students who attend class at The Lir and Junior School Classes at St. Matthews School in Sandymount, Castleknock, Holy Park and St. Louise de Marillac. We will be delighted to welcome you all into The Agency!
Progress at The Factory Cultural Centre
Work is progressing on The Factory and we are very excited to let you know that our 8 news Studios should be open in September 2017. It will be a wonderful new Cultural Centre for the Docklands when finished, and we hope to keep as much of The Factory Magic as possible. If you have any questions about the project, or are interested in developing a relationship between your business and The Factory Cultural Centre please talk to Jill or Eamon. We are creating a new facility which will benefit the children and young people of Dublin and Ireland, and we cannot wait to have you all on this new journey with us.
You can now book your classes online too!
