Chicago Kids in the Industry is not an agency, it’s not a management firm, it’s not a casting company.

IT IS a FREE resource to help connect child talent to independent filmmakers, student filmmakers and local production companies. 


We’re making it easy to get experience, make connections AND DO WHAT YOU LOVE!


Who we are

Chicago Kids in the Industry was founded in July 2011 by Jen Stanko, a Chicago based photographer, and Mother of child actress Keara Maive.
