What does a fitting involve?

If you are booked on a fitting for a job, it means the costume department needs to see you prior to the shoot day to fit you for a costume. The costume department and hair and make-up departments will see you and prepare your look for the role you are playing on the shoot day. Fitting payments will depend on the type of shoot and this will be outlined in the availability enquiry sent to you. For certain projects, like commercials, the payment for the fitting might be covered by the fee for the shoot days. Generally you are paid to be at your fitting for up to four hours although the fitting often takes less time. However, you should be prepared to be there for the full four hours.
