Getting Signed to a NY Modeling Agency
Are you a new model or actor looking to establish a footing in entertainment while still working a full-time job? Becoming a model or actor doesn't have to be a full-time job. In fact, most talent that start in entertainment attend casting calls and auditions on their free time after work and on the weekends.
Many talent think they're only option for success is finding a modeling agency or talent agency to represent them. If your plan is to start in entertainment, while still working a full-time job, an agency is not the answer. Typical agencies, especially in a New York market work off of a 20% Commission. While few may also invest in new talent marketing, you are responsible to pay that back to the talent agency.
At the end of an exclusive contract, which the average tends to be 1 to 2 years, any debt for marketing owed must be paid in full to the agency, plus interest, that's why agencies are so overly selective in the talent they move forward with. In fact less than 5% of entertainers are represented by an agency.
So how does one that wants to work full-time get started in the entertainment business quickly and effectively. The first step it's a develop the tools and marketing required for success. The second is finding casting opportunities and auditions, as well as resources, to become educated about the entertainment business.
