Where do you guys think Prestige would fall on this list? Especially with having Jay Schachter on their team from Mavrick? Starter since they're so new?
I think they're better than 90210 and below
From this part of the list
Coast to Coast
Ellis Talent Group
Mavrick Artists Agency
Media Artists Group
Cavaleri & Associates
Nancy Chaidez Agency
Jamie Ferrar Agency
Would the agencies be likely to take someone on without co-stars but with a reel and training? What about someone with barely any credits whatsoever? Do even the starter agencies expect credits? And are they likely to take someone on who is not SAG?
I have a reel and it was a professional shot scene but done with a friend.
What about the agencies from 90210-Jamie Ferrar Agency on the list?
Also how selective is someone like Aqua when it comes to taking on beginners?
It all depends on your LOOK, REFERRALS, ETC.
Submit away, and try showcases, but if you haven't gotten any RECOGNIZABLE credits, it'll still be tough.
Cinnabon Monster is right- you have to focus on credits, reps, writing, and training all at once.
why is SDB not on this list?
It should be... I mentioned that on the Working Actor forum. It should be in the group with Abrams/SMS/etc.
Where does Jana Luker Agency fall on this list? How strong are they across the board, but especially theatrically?
The "top two tiers" are very inaccurate.
Resolution's talent department represents Tatiana Maslany, David Duchovny, Ray Winstone, Stephen Dorff, and nobody else who is a significant piece of business. They have seen more client departures than new client signs over the last year. Resolution's lit department represents Nick Cassavetes, a few decent writers, and a lot of older directors such as Roman Polanski who are nice to have but who are not going to be hired in the studio system. They will probably be out of business within the next 6-12 months.
CAA, WME, and UTA are in a different business than the rest of the agencies. They owe money to private equity banks and they make most of their money not via client representation, but via investments in advertising agencies, brands such as denim companies, and other licensing and media investments.
ICM has a great TV business and they make a lot of money on their TV packages. They also have a great touring/PA business and a great list of 50-80 year old male actors and a great list of actresses (all ages). Paradigm has a top 2 music business, a dominant EDM business (via AMOnly), a good TV business (but not as good as the other 4 agencies), and an improving list of motion picture talent and directors.
APA has a market leading licensing and endorsement business, a market leading comedy touring business, and an OK talent business led by Gary Oldman. Gersh is a family owned business with a great below the line business, always a few great actors such as Brie Larson and Kristen Stewart, and a lot of actors who are 3rd, 4th, and 5th on the call sheet of their TV shows. They have no directors of any significance. Innovative is a volume business on the talent side, with an occasional outlier such as Amanda Seyfried, and a great commercial/voiceover business and a great below the line business.
Sam, where would Jana Luker agency fall on this list?
