I would say, stay with the same agency for all the kids. Funny enough my agency was interested mostly in my older DD and the youngest one starting booking more, so you never know? I would say out of that list go with Generation. They are def top tier and zuri is still new and don't know what the client list is yet and product and FFT would be considered more second tier. I will say also go with the agent you really liked as well! Congrats and Good Luck!
I would say you will definitely make your life easier going with the same agency for all 3 kids - certainly helpful when coordinating castings/bookings and sometimes they may even audition/book together!! Good luck! Did you apply to New York Models and Wilhelmina? I didn't see them on your list.
All one agency!!! How could you possibly coordinate go-sees and bookings for 3 kids through 3 agencies? That would be a nightmare! What if 3 kids book 3 things at different places? One agent for all 3 can coordinate all that.
One agency for three kids is easiest. I love Generation.
Love, love LOVE Generation.
I think the two best are NYMM and generation
stick with one agency for all 3 kids.
We've been with Generation for about 5 months or so now, and are constantly being sent on castings. They are a wonderful bunch to work with, and the other parents are great as well. I'm thrilled with them.
I've seen a few kids at castings from Zuri, not too many though (but I don't really ask, it just sometimes comes up), and a few from product.
Once you are at a go see, I don't think the agency has anything to do with it, that's up to the kid. It is getting to the go sees that is the agency's job and some do it better then others. The other good thing about the best agencies like Generation, is there are more direct bookings, meaning you never even have to bother with a go see, your kid just gets a job based on his or her pictures. The clients trust that the agency is sending them a good kid to work with. That is a huge bonus that the big agencies have. Most of the sign ins we see are Generation, NYM and Wilhelmina. Good luck and I hope you end up with an agency you love.
As for declining an agency's offer, we just sent a brief, gracious email thanking them for their time and interest and saying we were going in a different direction. No need for more details...they understand. And if you keep it short and sweet, you leave the door open in case you may want to go back and maybe join that agency in the future.
I would never talk negatively about anyone or any agency especially on a public forum. BUT...I will say the positive. Generation is wonderful and anyone represented by them, should feel honored. They are part of a team that works hard for the kids!
As for your questions...
*1 agency for all kids is easiest!
*I'd definitely send a short and sweet email declining the offers from other agencies.
Good luck with your decision!!
You shouldn't have to delete an opinion. It's your opinion & your experience. Not every agency is not for every person. No matter how good they are
I agree that everyone is entitled to their opinion but I also know that in this business, it is not good to burn any bridges. So I agree with not posting anything negative. And if you think this site is anonymous, while that is true in theory, it ends up being pretty easy to figure out who people are based on what they post. It's a small world. You never know when the wind might shift and something or someone that you didn't think was going to work out becomes your salvation. This is a crazy industry and as I said, don't burn any bridges.... My opinion is, if the agency works for you, and you are happy and your child is getting out there then who cares who you are with, good for you!
To the original poster, I agree with all three kids with one agency and good luck and enjoy this crazy ride! Try to maintain your sense of honor and your sense of humor. Best of luck to you and your kids.
While agree in theory Celeste and yes people can figure out who you are - I don't find that a big deal, what is the point of asking an opinion if you will only get good opinions and not the other side (if there is another side)? A good debate is one that is truthful and states the good and the bad of anything - agencies included. Makes no sense if all people say are good things unless that is the honest truth. I don't think people should delete any posts if they are truthful. Now there are other posts that have been on this board that are not truthful and arguments ensue based on falsities. That is a different issue.
