Yes, you need to actually be here for agents to take you seriously

I agree with what somebody said on page 1 about Stevens Group. At this point, it seems like he's just waiting to retire and the passion has been lost. I was with him for a year and while he was nice and I feel he meant well, he said all he does is just hit "submit" online and that nobody will take pitch calls anymore. He kinda seemed like the business has passed him by and he's longing for the old days. I wouldn't be surprised to hear he's retired any day now. That was my impression. I left on good terms.

Dude Teehee. I just wanted to give you a heads up. He wasn't being a jerk, but you have to realize, you are new to the boards, nobody knows you from dick to jane, and you are not only giving the hard info that you have, you are also throwing in connotations and in this particular instance, a negative one.

That's the primary issue. And to be honest, I appreciated your information, right up until you said they sound like they are going south. Reason being? What if I am repped by them? "I'm not". What if I am on the fence to sign with them, and simply because you decided to say they are going under, I choose not to sign and lose out on a good opportunity?

The point is, you are new around here and you haven't earned the stripes necessary to throw around a comment like that with any kind of authority. I know you meant no harm but see it that way and hopefully it helps you understand.

I'm new to posting as well...been reading for years though lol.

To HCIII-no you should submit in December and say you are relocating in January because Dec. is the slow month and best time for submissions. You are most likely not to get overlooked. Hopefully you are coming early January which will be better for meetings. The later the busier they will be.

HCIII - Why not move in January, get settled in, learn your way around town, get new headshots, take an audition class, try to do some thesis projects and ulbs while everybody else is busy with pilot season and THEN worry about submitting to agents when they are on hiatus and actively looking for new talent in April and May if you can't scrounge up a referral by then?

I was thinking of actually waiting till may. I would have more than enough funds to be starting out and can build a stronger resume. Although whose to say I won't have money like that in January tho. I really like your response gyokoren!

I realize Bobby Ball is on the list, but I just wanted to ask - theatrically, are they good? Anyone with them? I was wondering how often any clients go out. I've never had a theatrical agent- endlessly searching- their the first to respond to me, so I'm excited, but I'm also pacing myself- just in case I should wait for something else, like Media Artists group? Just asking. Bobby Ball- good theatrically? Thank you so much.

Well, this list of agencies is based on their theatrical department, so I would assume they're pretty good. Or else SAM wouldn't have listed it in the first place.

This isn't a hard and fast rule though. An agency with a solid reputation still won't get you out much if they're not passionate about you.

Where does Brady, Brannon and Rich (BBR) fit on this list? I have 4 friends signed with this agency and only 1 is AEA.

BBR's theatrical department is pretty new and they just opened it last year. So their theatrical department may not be up to par with their commercial department which is very good. I believe they might be stronger in theater opposed to film and television.
