So, Godis, what service DO you provide that people can't do for themselves? I'd love to hear what a "talent marketing firm" does that's worth the money. Do tell us "in full detail."
To answer your question we never have claimed to provide a service that people cannot provide for themselves. That is like saying there is no reason to go to a restaurant for dinner when you can just cook at home, or no reason to buy a prom dress when you can sew one yourself. People always have the option to purchase services that they feel are important to them. And you are correct, people can absolutely research talent/modeling agencies and managers, and send in their own photos (either regular Polaroid photos or professional ones) Awesome, thanks for that nugget of info.
and wait to see if they are called in for a meeting. People can absolutely get involved in local theater or dance troupes, or search for local modeling castings and open calls, and we do not discourage that. Much appreciated. we certainly don't want you to offer discouragement. Many thanks. You're very welcome. :-)
At InterFACE, we have developed lasting relationships with top talent agencies and managers that look forward to using our services to request fresh new talent. Funny that you do not name these "top talent agencies and managers". We absolutely do name the agents and managers who request our clients when we write about our updates on our social media and website pages. From Posche Models in FL, to Abrams Artists Agency to Innovative Artists in NYC, we work with top talent agencies and management companies. You can find out more information on our website.
We market our clients' professional photos directly to a pool of seasoned industry professionals, and also give them the opportunity to call into to request talent. For instance a talent agent may call InterFACE to request 5 year old red-haired boys to audition for a national network Bisquick commercial So, an agent calls you..instead of looking at his/her own client roster? ^^ Yes. If an agency only has one or two (or maybe none) 5 year-old red haired boys signed to their agency to send on an audition for Bisquick. They have a much better chance of booking the job if they call InterFACE to request 20 more boys who will be auditioning under their agency.
in a closed audition, meaning you must have the permission to sign in the audition under an agency or be represented by a talent agent to attend. closed audition?! also, if they have an agent..they have headshots. they have a resume. they have basic marketing materials at least.. no decent agent would take them on otherwise. SO WHY THE FUCK WOULD THEY NEED YOU?
In the example I provided, I am referring to the InterFACE clients who are attending the closed audition with the head shot and resume they created AT InterFACE. Which gives them a great advantage when attending these types of opportunities. Again you stated yourself that these are the basic marketing materials needed by most people trying to break into the entertainment industry, and we provide that.
Clients are able to attend the audition armed with their professional head shots and resumes, due to the services InterFACE offers. Our clients are able to participate in these amazing opportunities to help them break into the industry; this is the access that InterFACE provides.
Also typically people who are serious about pursuing a career in the entertainment industry do end up having their photos professionally done, which is a service that InterFACE provides. We offer professional styling and photo services to give our clients the best advantage when being promoted to industry professionals.
InterFACE may not be the option everyone chooses to help them break into the entertainment industry, and by no means is anyone obligated to use our company services, however it is one avenue that has helped to simplify the process for thousands of aspiring actors, models, dancers, and singers.
I hope this answers your question!
