Does anyone have new or recent info on this company? I was thinking of submitting my kids to them for representation but heard that there have been some recent changes over there and possibly that their best kids are exiting. Don't want to get caught up in drama just want the facts. It's hard to find good manager choices in LA, nobody ever wants to share their secrets.
They have a pretty active facebook page. Maybe email them and just ask honestly if they are taking submissions and what the changes are etc. Hope that helps. Good luck.
Thanks I guess I will do that but Im guessing since no one had anything else to say on here I might as well keep looking. Doubt they will be honest if there is turmoil and dont want to get caught up in it.
I'll PM you. Do you know if BTM is the same in LA as the one in NY? If so I can recommend someone for you to email.
Since no one has responded I would assume that there is no drama or real issues with them. Usually people are very quick to reply when there are problems. If you want to submit, go ahead. There is no commitment in submitting, you might not even hear back from them.
The departure of the main LA manager this past summer and the recent departure of the NY manager indicates turmoil. Yes, their top clients on both coasts have left to seek other management options.
I know people with them. I will check if they left. I do not know that though so I wouldn't trust messages from people who never posted before. I will try to find out.
I just looked them up and it looks like the NYC end is now Zoom Management. I am not affiliated with them, but did know some kids with them who I looked up on IMDB Pro to figure it out. Haven't heard anything though from anyone other than reading this thread on this board.
Agents switch agencies all the time just like we can all switch employers too. Doesnt mean the company is in turmoil. Maybe just time for change or new opportunity? My friend told me the agent from FBI left and went to FFT agency and some kids including my friend followed that agent to FFT! Doesnt mean either agency is getting worse or having turmoil. Same as Shirley Grant mgmt the guy Tommy went to Prestige mgmt instead. Both mgmt are doing fine still. Lots of agents worked for other agents or mgmt in their past but we maybe dont know that. It looks like the BTM mgmt is still doing fine from the facebook page. Didnt the lady Paloma leave one agency and start her own recently too? And some of her clients even went with her? I dont know what agency it was she left from but I just remember reading on the forum that she left. Change in employment happens! Agents and Mgrs are normal people like us!
I think gr8kids and NobodyKnows is the same person? gr8kids registered 10/15 and posted this topic. NobodyKnows registered 10/28 and reopened the topic when noone had anything negative to say. This board is supposed to be positive.
I know the LA Branch merged with another management company out here.
As someone said, agents and managers move all the time and so do clients.
With that in mind, we know several families that dropped them as management in the last six months here in LA. But I could say that about a lot of managers, LOL!
I don't know anything more than that.
NewModel that was really the message I was trying to convey also. Change happens and doesn't have to mean drama or "turmoil". There doesn't appear to be much suggesting that in this case.
"Untitled" is one of the Top 3 in LA. Good people and they represent most of the big names.
