What does it mean to be on a pencil?
When a brief comes in, suitable artists will be sent enquiries to see if they are available for work. As soon as you respond to an enquiry to say that you are available for the given shoot day/s, you are on a PENCIL. You must then stay available for the given shoot date/s. If something else comes up that you would like to do on a day you are pencilled for, you must first check with the agent/agency you are working with if you can be released BEFORE taking the other opportunity. At that point the agent/agency will either confirm you for the job or release you. Artists who wish to work often through the platform, should be sure to honour pencils.
