CESD and Osbrink are only theatrically strong for kids/youth.

CESD recently added an adult theatrical division and we have yet to see how that goes.

Osbrink dropped their adult theatrical division after 2009.

Also, I think Steve Stevens is now one of those agents that has lost his sizzle and has entered "has-been" status. He repped most of the original Star Trek cast and almost anyone who was anyone during the 60s and 80s.

Nowadays, everyone I've met who was with him seems to leave him in less than 4 months.

Thanks for the list, Sam.

I struggling with the idea that IFA and Buchwald are in the same category as, say, Momentum. That doesn't ring true to me at all. Can you clarify?

Unless you just bunched all of the boutiques together, in which case, it makes sense.

Clear is good for commercials. HTW probably won't get you out unless you have booked a lot on your own.

There are six tiers here. Could someone give a description of each tier?
Like Tier 1 Mega A listers and such.
so on?
I was going to aim for tier 3,4,5 for commercial representation. Do you think with a good headshot and some training I have a chance(Commercial/improve training)?

A lot of the agencies on here are strictly theatrical.

You should be submitting to all commercial agencies in the top commercials list on here. You never know.

You got to be more realistic with theatrical agencies and know who accepts emails or emvelopes and who's referral only.

I have a whole ecxel spreadsheet with which are theatric and which are Commercial. I know half of these are strictly theatrical. I have been comparing them to the other list and compiling EVERYTHING.
Abrams
AKA
CESD
Coast to Coast
Daniel Hoff
Kazarian Spencer Ruskin (KSR)
Amsel-Eisenstadt & Frazier
Angel City
Aqua
Avalon Artist
Bobby Ball

I know they were on the commercial list and they are on this list. I am still organizing my list but I should be done soon. I am checking backstage on whether they except mail in or email. I have screenshots of all the agencies on here and the commercial list IMDB page. I just wish I knew more about them and when to submit.

Am I doing to much work? haha

Probably in the 6th tier if that. Their top talent doesn't seem to do much. Looking at co-stars/guest-stars. But I didn't look to much.
