The Actor's Effort to be seen in Cyberspace
or How NOT to Have Fun Looking for a Job in the 21st Century
by Mari Lyn Henry, Sue Porter Henderson and Brian Vermeire

THE PAST
Years ago during my life as a casting director, the submission plan was simpler.
The now defunct Ross Reports was the main resource for finding a casting office and
sending a photo and a resume with a cover letter (hand written), placing them in a 9 x 12 manila mailer
and hoping for a phone call from the office. You didn't have to POUND the pavement and wear out the
shoe leather anymore. Perhaps the phone did ring with an appointment for an interview leading to an
audition. If that didn't happen in two weeks what next? The proverbial PHOTO postcard was sent as a
friendly reminder with subtext Remember Me? Oh well, those were the days, the days when a casting
director's nightmare might have been death by suffocation from the enormous amount of 8 x 10's that
never got opened falling from the ceiling. Postcards remain the NORM as a means of keeping agents
etc. aware of your progress and most recent work!
I wrote a poem that was published in Back Stage 20 years ago about What
Actors Will Do to Get A Foot in the Door!

Balloons, Gift Baskets,


Tricks and Treats,
Candy, Cakes, Cookies,
All Kinds of Sweets,
Pieces of Puzzles,
A Token, a Ring,
Chests without Shirts,
A Telegram they sing.
Soapboxes, Matchbooks,

Magnets, Back Stage Ads.

What Actors Will Do To Get a Foot in the Door!

TODAY
According to my friend and colleague, Sue Porter Henderson, publisher of this invaluable
resource, an actor can and does waste an entire day submitting for projects that may or may not exist.
Any casting director could get 1,000 electronic submissions a day for any role that is posted on the
Internet's principal casting websites. Truthfully both casting directors and talent agents do not welcome
unsolicited e-submissions from actors. They ignore them. One of the major reasons for the wait is that
novice actors will submit for any and all parts whether they apply to their type or not. This is akin to
going to an open call which has specific requirements for the part, e.g. beautiful ingnue in the early 20s
with blonde hair and blue eyes, a young Grace Kelly for a role on a prime time episodic series. The line
starts early in the morning and women in their 40s with red hair, mostly character types get there first. So
now you get the idea about indiscriminate click and submit.

5
You have to reassess your promotional materials. Does your current photo do you justice? Does
your photo suggest to the casting director that you are the physical description in the breakdown? That
you are the age range? That the experience on your resume lists impressive credits and training? That in
essence, you are READY for the job? If you are only going down the electronic path in your career, the
outcome is bleak.

What you have done is eliminated the very core of how to get work---networking,
taking classes where you have interaction with other actors, working on your craft and
doing selected not mass mailings. Letting these same casting directors and the agents
know when you are working no matter whereshowcases of new plays, independent
films, student films, starting your own company to develop new works and perhaps writing
material that will be performed some day as a one person show.

You have to be active and out there, not sitting at a keyboard all day with no direction. And
remember your TALENT will never be ignored.

Brian Vermeire and Kristina Hughes founded HoldonLog.com and PerformerTrack.com over ten
years ago and created organizational software to help actors literally run their own business. Recently
Brian wrote a piece about the topic of quick fixes and e-submissions and called it Performers: Get Off
the Slots. Think of a casino. A majority of the folks in a casino are slumped behind a jackpot machine
pulling the lever hoping with each pull that the next one will make them rich. A slot machine is easy to
do. Just sit there, pull the lever, get 3 7s in a row and BAM JACKPOT! However, we know the usual
outcome is
that they will walk away broke and frustrated.

There are a TON of self-submission websites out there that promise that you will
be seen by the right people. It's so easysimply click, submit for a project, audition, get cast and you
are a star....NOT! You really have to have a strategy. It takes WORK TO WIN. The Entertainment
Industry is a Relationship Business. This is not a Click & Submit Business. There is no magic bullet
to becoming a successful performer but if you win at the Relationship Building table, you will win
bigger and faster than if you were with the rest playing the slots by clicking and submitting everyday.

Taking control of your career away from the computer will open your eyes to opportunities that
you can create for yourself. As Milton Berle once said, If opportunity isn't knocking, build a door.

PART TWO

Are you ready for your close-up?

The statistics are still appalling. There are so many union members, so few jobs. Competition is
fierce. Open calls posted on Back Stage or on union bulletin boards attract hordes of hopefuls who line up
on the street hours before the session begins. When a noted film director had an open call on a bitterly
cold February day, it is estimated that 5,000 actors (some of whom had slept out on the street the night
before) turned out for their big break.
Nevertheless, actors will not be dissuaded from trying their luck in the big Apple or seeking their
glory in Tinsel town.
So many actors choose to be ignorant about the business aspect of the profession.
It may have seemed romantic in the opera La Boheme to live in a cold water garret, sacrificing everything
for art. That was an opera set in the 19th century. Today in the 21st century there is really no excuse for
seeking a career in acting without enough money saved to survive during the orientation. Actors must
consider themselves entrepreneurs, self-appointed commanders of their own Enterprise. They have to
know how to package themselves, promote their talent, organize their home office, understand the
appropriate protocols for interviews, impression management and keeping a daily journal of their
business days, notating who they met and honestly evaluating the experience.
AND they have to continue training to keep in physical, mental and emotional shape, stay alert to the
unexpected and unpredictable occurrences in the biz, and NEVER stop seeking ways to improve self-
awareness and confidence.

7
Years ago actors found work by literally pounding the pavement, snail mailing their headshots
and resumes to agents offices and those few casting directors who were just emerging as the experts who
could spot talent and open doors. Actors then were able to leave their pix in a box outside of the office
hoping an assistant would see their potential and call them for a meeting. Now agents will only see you
by appointment; casting directors will only see you through referrals. Cold submissions are rarely
successful. For security reasons there is no admission without an invitation. So the Internet, Electronic
submissions, YouTube auditions, and the Smartphone have become the new normal of doing business.
However the very first step is still sending via snail mail, an 8x10 color headshot, resume, and cover letter
to your selected agents, casting directors and personal managers. If they are interested you will be
contacted.
The chance to get employed by a self-submission on the Internet is perhaps one in a million. So
stop clicking, submitting and waiting. Thou shall not WHINE if you are prepared for that CHANCE when
you get a response from an agents or a casting directors office. Are you ready for that close-up, for that
monologue in the office, to tape a scene on YouTube? Will you clutch, freeze, let anxiety overwhelm
you? When actors are uncomfortable, nervous or frightened they cant have a successful audition because
they have blocked their creative energy.
Some professional guidelines are outlined in Sue Porter Hendersons valuable agents directory
and casting directors guide. I also must underscore the necessity to know about acting and vocal coaches
and have a list of at least five of them to call when needed. Have your professional wardrobe ready to
wear with solid colors, polished shoes, proper fit, and minimal accessories. If you are in an ongoing class,
work on the audition material there and get creative guidance from the teacher. Look rested when you
make your entrance, have a positive attitude, enjoy the experience, dont think about a callback, be in the
moment.
The road to success is strewn with frustration, naysayers, sacrifice, feelings of failure and
rejection. But if this is the career you passionately want, work hard, embrace your nerves, feel your power
and love every minute of the journey.
Oscar winner Mercedes Reuhl remembers the time in her early career when she had no concept of
how much talent she had. I believed in myself fiercely when I was receiving encouragement from Uta
Hagen and felt I was proceeding gracefully but these ill winds of rejection had thrown me way off
course. And she was packing her bags to return home when that eleventh hour call came from a
playwright who wanted her for a role. The rest is history.

WHAT ACTORS NEED TO KNOW
PART 4 OF 4

THE ACTOR'S CAREER BUILDING STEPS


STARRING ROLES COME UNEXPECTEDLY-BE READY

BE PREPARED! KNOW HOW TO MAKE THEM MULTIPLY


Whether you've suddenly become fairly well known throughout the industry with a television series
or a frustratingly slower inching upward in roles and billing, or are still in the "working actor" stage, the
real "career-breakthrough" starring will come without warning! And you'll never know that's what they'll
be for you till they're in theatres or on television. Brad Pitt couldn't have expected his sudden top stardom
with his third film. John Travolta couldn't have known that his 4th film "Saturday Night Fever" would put
him on top suddenly and couldn't have anticipated his sudden "comeback" years later. Jack Nicholson was
amusedly shocked when "Easy Rider" (his 16th low-budget) did it for him.

But there are many more modest "break-through" starring roles along the way. See the words "Be
Prepared" above? A producer waited as long as they could, while the agent couldn't find Jim. It turned
out that he was in his van on the way to Atlantic City licking his wounds about losing a different role....
without telling his agent! After waiting as long as possible for his agent to find him, they had to cast
another actor! Always be ready and available! That could happen any time! Some actors are prepared
and know what to do. Some aren't. You'll never know when the first really "Big" break is coming.
Always communicate with your agent!

When that big break, "Starring", comes suddenly, if it's a motion picture, there'll still be a long
waiting period for the release, openings in theatres and trade and daily paper reviews, a waiting period
that seems endless! When the film finally opens nationwide there will be many reviews that may or may
not think you deserve high praise. You did the role, got the best billing available and probably many
weeks of decent salary. But it can mean little, both
during the "waiting for release" period and when you're praised, unless you've known ahead of time how
to exploit it or have a manager exploiting it during that waiting period and (still better) have invested in a
publicist as soon as you are cast in that plum role. An unbelievable amount of publicity, in all print media
at least, can be gotten day in and day out by a good publicist while you're still working in that film!
Without a publicist, you can do that big role and when it's finished slip back to where you were before.

9
What's lucky for still low salaried "working actors" is that, the higher the first season salary
demanded for one or two top stars, the less that's left for the other regular cast members and in the end
there isn't much budget left, so those "working actors" with the most modest established salaries will be
given their best chances, often simply for budget reasons. Whether in one performing medium or another,
such "sudden stardom" is fairly common, but more usual is that with someone creating a sudden miracle
for you after a lot of increasingly good roles, your work is broadly known and respected. Your agent calls
frequently to tell you that you've been "set" for roles without interviews, most often important roles that
appear throughout total scripts, each with the potential of some form of "guest starring" for television and
at least "featured" billing for motion pictures. If productions and casting people observe that you're really
"in demand" everywhere and rising swiftly there'll be many "offers" to your agent. Any one of those
offers can be a big break through moment for you if it's skillfully exploited. If you don't have a manager
and or a publicist to do that exploiting, those opportunities will slip quietly past, one after another.
Some "big breaks" may not seem of much importance when offered: One of the opportunities a
good agent or manager will consider in this stage because they know what it can become, but not
necessarily jump to accept for you, is one of the "recurring character" roles that are either introduced in
new series pilots or are added mid season, as many are. The frequency of being seen by the public in
many if not all of the series episodes would be enough, because of the promotion and visibility that
frequency offers (especially if its worth "guest starring" billing each time), but a good manager and a
publicist, or a career supporting agent also knows that if the character attracts some attention it often
becomes a series regular role, under series contract, with some form of special billing and a decent salary
at the start of the second season if not sooner. Either or all of those team members know how to promote
that kind of role into a series regular. Short of a series starring role from the start, its one of the quickest
manners of obtaining broad public and industry visibility and probably a billing boost.

"Recurring" roles of all ages and types are most often added mid season, when something is
envisioned as being needed for more appeal, more atmosphere, more local color, some comic relief or
whatever. You, as well as your agent and or manager, should continually concentrate your promotion
efforts on the casting and other production staff members of current television series that you feel you'd
be right for.

"Recurring" roles have one drawback. If you're brought in increasingly often, you're too often
unavailable for other starring roles when your agent is called regarding your availability. To avoid being
"laid aside for a while" by other productions, the best agent, when those "Recurring" calls come will ask
to have the scripts delivered to you quickly so you can decide and let the agent get back to them quickly.
That indication of respect for your choices and the fact that you require the privilege is in its own way
excellent promotion with those who call. Recurring roles aren't "contract" roles and if an actor is
sufficiently valued by the production he or she is forgiven for being "unavailable" because of a choice
starring role elsewhere. Whether film, television or theatre is involved, with your agent and manager
always stressing it, is that the role and billing are what matter to you. Of course the role first, but
"Separate Card, Main Titles" should always be at least asked for television guest appearances and at least
billing position requested for film. No less than "Share Card, Main Titles" should be accepted. If they
want you badly enough, even if at first they say it's not possible, it can be arranged.

CHANGING AGENTS IN THIS PERIOD - PRO'S AND CON'S


This is when many actors consider this questionable step. Temptations come over lunches with
friends when their agents are with them. Agents proselytize all the time. Your friends' agent knows the
kind of commissions you're producing for your current agent and would like to have those commissions
coming to their office instead.

10
Although a new agent may really believe they can help you achieve a bigger career leap swiftly, he
or she might fail because of not knowing the structure on which the upward progress thus far has been
based. There may be too many details not known about you, about your special talents, special qualities,
special contacts and especially deals already in early development. Salary and billing boost requests of the
new agent are often suddenly ridiculous, because the new agent is anxious to fulfill his or her promises.
You might simply not work at all for a while. If you do decide to leave an agency, do it gracefully. Have a
reason that doesn't hurt the feelings of the agent you're leaving. An agency you leave without good
feelings can hurt you! Unless a top, top agency comes to you with a firm offer depending upon your
signing with them, usually a television series starring role or motion picture they are "packaging", stick
with your current agent who's brought you this far. If their series or film really needs you, you'll be cast
without changing agents.
There have been cases where a top agent at one of the giants signed a "new star" because he was
beginning to steal top roles from one of their own male stars. Their reason for stealing him away with one
project was to reduce his threat to their other client!

IT'S TIME FOR ADDING A BUSINESS MANAGER AND A SECRETARY

When a series salary and other starring roles are assured of becoming continuous into the foreseeable
future, a Business Manager can be obtained for a modest annual retainer fee if the contract or
understanding includes the agreement that expenses for special services "as needed" throughout the year
will be paid in addition. Business Managers can save you hundreds of thousands of dollars (or in these
days more likely millions!) from your burgeoning income! And as fan mail begins and grows, you must
have a Secretary to handle that mail and pick up all phone calls and refer them to the appropriate
members of your team. If becoming a public celebrity of any noteworthiness, you should never pick up
your own phone. There are so many details in this new career level that other people can and should
handle more expertly for you. Doing it yourself will distract from your concentration on preparation of
your performances.

YOU MUST PUBLICIZE NEW STARDOM, OR IT CAN EVAPORATE


YOU CAN DO A CERTAIN AMOUNT YOURSELF WITH PRESS RELEASES
If you have yet to do something, are doing something, or have just done something that's
newsworthy for newspaper, magazine or on air publicizing, preparing your own publicity release is
simple, if you have perfect grammar and punctuation. If you don't have those, don't even try it. To
prepare a release follow the following steps.

(1) At top left, print "From:" with a company name, an address below it, and below that, "Contact:" and a
name and phone number. No date.
(2) Drop down a few lines and at the right margin print in capital letters,

underlined: "FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, PLEASE."

(3) Drop down a couple of lines, centered, print in capital letters (no

underlining) just a few words that encapsulate the story.

(4) Drop down two or three lines again and begin your first paragraph. Double space the story, keep left
and right margins one inch wide. That first paragraph must tell in the fewest words possible, the whole
story. WHO (you) is doing or just did WHAT (the "story" in just a few to the point words), WHEN and
WHERE. Editors scan that first paragraph swiftly to decide whether it's for them. If the total story isn't

11
condensed in that first paragraph's brief and attention grabbing wording, the release is thrown away

(5) A following paragraph (or two at the most) should contain the elaborating details. WHY the item is
newsworthy will challenge your mental resources. Something about it must be one of the following: a
big break, something obviously of broad human interest, or amusing, or of personal (maybe comic)
disaster nature or something that applies to the individual Editor's special field. A following paragraph
(or two at the most) should contain the elaborating details. WHY the item is newsworthy will challenge
your mental resources. Something about it must be one of the following: a big break, something
obviously of broad human interest, or amusing, or of personal (maybe comic) disaster nature or
something that applies to the individual Editor's special field.

(6) Name names of others involved, recognized name, mention the producer, the star, the director, even a
studio or theatre name, will grab attention and may cause the item to be printed. Those names are
currently more newsworthy than your own may still be.

(7) At the bottom of the first page, if there are more than one, two spaces down from the last line, in the
center, print "---1---" if an additional page is necessary, at the bottom of the second page print "---2---",
at the end of the release, drop down two lines and print "---3---".

(8) To send a theatre production photo with any other cast member in it, get permission from that other
person and also from the theatre before mailing the release. The same applies for any photo of any actual
performance in any medium.

Since the story is about you, behind the release include a Photo of yourself, with a narrow "caption" strip
with your name on it, use double sided tape and tape it at the bottom. Be sure to tape the top of the
caption to the back of the photo bottom, not the front, so the total photo can be printed.

THE ACTING STYLES OF TODAY'S MAJOR STARS

QUOTES

I work with several different agents for commercials, industrials and print including Abrams Artists,
Prestige, Bella, Rick Miller and Ramona's Models and Talent. It's because of Sue Hendersons help and
advice that I continue to do well in this, ever changing industry. It is also why I continue to recommend
my fellow actors both experienced and new to seek your advice and services. Thank you, Sue!

Abby Ross (Working Actor)

Everything started for me after I met with Sue Henderson, with her guidance and advice, I signed with
a major commercial agent within two months and began freelancing with several film and television
agents on a regular basis. Casting Directors regularly call me directly. I have been a principal in Sprint,
Chevy, Cheerios, IKEA, MasterCard, and several major print jobs. I have also appeared as a principal in,
Wall Street 2, 30 Rock, Gravity and Boardwalk Empire.

Tom Morrissey, (Working Actor)

Sue Henderson gave me the inside track on reaching current and important casting directors in the
NYC area. At first, I thought it was monotonous but she said to stick with it because they will get to
know you! So I post carded casting directors every time I got a principal gig and it worked BIG TIME!
Thats how I booked the pivotal supporting role of Lou Gold in The Fighter.

Ted Arcidi (Working Actor)

Its part of an actors homework and investment in your brand, no matter what level you are at to know
whos casting what. Agents and CD's tend to move around and Henderson Publications give you a birds-
eye view of the playing field. It also focuses my energy on where it needs to be and the perfect fit for
my goals. Do what you need to do, but I find in my conversations I know whos been doing their
homework. Thanks for doing the hard work Sue; you are my rock star!

Shawn Michael
(SAG-AFTRA, AEA)
Co-Star "Blue Bloods" CBS

Thank you so much for your label service! I booked a major role as Tommy for Luc Bessons
Malovita (Robert DeNiro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Tommy Lee Jones), which took me to France for a month
of filming! Im convinced that the recent heads-up postcard to Mackey Sandrich Casting prompted
them to bring me in. Like you saidYou get in their face with credits and you get called in.

AN AGENTS VIEW
Josh Pultz

Why would I want an Agent?


It's very difficult to pursue a professional career in New York without having an agent
on your team. Agents provide so much more to their clients than just scheduling appointments
and negotiating contracts. Agents must work hand in hand with actors to discuss career goals
and formulate a strategy that will be the most successful. Its about meeting the people that
you don't know and that don't know you--the people that make THE DECISION THAT WILL
AFFECT YOUR CAREER AND AN AGENT CAN BE INVALUABLE IN CULTIVATING THOSE
RELATIONSHIPS.

Do I need extensive training before contacting an Agent?


Training is extremely important and is a huge factor in the one's success. Whether you
attend an established training program like those at Julliard and Yale or you study at one of the
many acting studios here in NYC, continuing to work on your craft, develop new skills, find
new audition monologues and explore yourself as an artist will go far in your pursuits Just as
you have to invest yourself in this business and in an agent, an agent makes an investment in
you. To an agent, a well-trained actor is a good investment. Having training from a well
known graduate acting program is a very attractive investment for an agent. Your four years in
an undergraduate program and/or three years in a graduate program will give you many
invaluable experiences including numerous roles in college productions, access to the
institutions alumni, and most importantly a show-case at the end of your program. That
showcase is a sure fire way to get an agent.
How will I know if an Agent is right for me?
When I sign a client I hope and expect that they will be my client for years to come. This
is why your personal relationship is very important when deciding on an agent. When I sit
down to meet with a potential client I think of it less as a meeting and more as a casual
conversation between two people. You'll sometimes see and speak with your agent more than
most members of your family, so a comfort level when speaking with each other and
interacting is extremely important. You also need to do your homework. Know what type
of agency you're interested in. Do you want an agency with a commercial department? Do you
prefer a smaller office to a larger one? Does an office specialize in developing new talent or is
it a power house musical theatre office? All of this will require research on your part. It's also
good, especially when going into a meeting, to know about the agent you are meeting with and
about their office. Pick up a copy of the New York Agencies book, talk to friends who are or
know people who are represented by that agent, chat with casting director friends. Taking an
active interest will not only help you make an informed decision but will also give you more
ammunition in conversation and the fact that you took time to do some research will show
through and impress a potential agent.
What do Agents look for in the talent they represent?
Its all about the complete package and what you are going to be able to offer to that
agent and to the business. Talent is, of course, key. You can be the nicest and most business
savvy person ever but if you dont have the goods to back it up the former traits seem
insignificant. I want to represent someone who is realistic about where they are in their
career, what roles they can/will play and someone who has a clear vision of what kind of
projects they want to be doing.
Do Agents recommend audition centers for seeking representation?
Like I said, for agents it is all about your work and that means an agent needs to see
you in action. Audition centers are the perfect medium for this to happen. It can also be the
perfect venue in which to have all your business questions answered and to get a feel for a
specific agent, learn some more about their office and get feed back about your monologue
or song selection. I also sometimes recommend audition centers to my own clients for the
purposes of meeting casting directors, they dont yet know.

14
How can a trained actor get a MP/TV Agent?
In New York these days there really is no such thing as a MP/TV Agent. New York
is, without question, a Theatre town. We have eight episodic TV shows shooting here and a
smattering of Feature Film work, but a walk through Times Square makes it very clear that
Theatre is the bread and butter of New York based talent Agencies. Broadway, Off
Broadway and Regional Theatre are the basis for Professional Acting Careers in New York
and the roots of many MP/TV names on the West Coast are here as well. Do not make the
decision to obtain training and become an actor on the notion of vaulting to Stardom on
Network Television or becoming the next Julia Roberts overnight. It is all about creating a
solid foundation of work on your resume that can aid you in reaching the next level in your
career. Telling an Agent in NY, that you are only interested in film and television is, more
often than not, a turnoff.
How has the Actor/Agent relationship changed over the past few years?
Communication and the way Actors and Agents communicate has changed very
dramatically in recent years. Developments in technology, like the use on-line sources to
send clients audition materials and appointment information and the ease and speed of e-
mail as a communication tool, has diminished the need for office visits and face-to-face
contact. That is why I encourage clients to stop by from time to time and why basic and
unimportant conversations transpire via e-mail. E-mail is useful for disseminating
information that does not require a telephone call. Agents are also more closely examining
their clients career paths and Actors have to reconsider the types of projects that interest
them. The need for work weeks as they relate to Health Insurance and the surge of star
driven casting, both in Theatre and recent television projects means more clients pursuing
the Independent film market and regional theatre.
What is required by me once an Agent decides to represent me?
Agents all like different things from their clients. For me, having clear
communication with my clients, is the important component. No need to call me to ask if,
anything is going on. Trust that if an agent has something to speak to you about, you will
get a call. However, if there is a project that you are interested in, if you are experiencing
some frustrations either with the business or in your Agent relationship or if you have some
business or even a personal matter to discuss call or e-mail me. I work with my clients and
other Agents in my office as a member of a team and communication with all of the
members of that team is vital. I like my clients to be proactive and well connected. Meet as
many industry people as you possibly can, know whats going on in the business an keep
you ear to the ground. So much of what goes on in this business comes first through the
Actor grape vine. Cast replacements, readings and workshops sometimes happen under
the radar of an Agent. Thats where you come in. Of course there are also the basics. Agents
want their clients to be prepared, go to auditions prepared, be accessible (that means letting
me know when you are out of town or booked out on a commercial), deliver headshots in a
timely fashion when asked and I cant say it enough, communicate.

AGENTS THAT REPRESENT
SPECIAL CATEGORIES OF TALENT
Although most of the following agencies represent other types of talents as well, they maintain
special lists of the talents indicated or in fact specialize exclusively in those types. This list is
provided to help actors and others find more quickly the agents that may be especially inter-
ested to receive their submissions. Also, there's an obvious benefit for new people especially to
be with or at least known for freelancing calls by an agency that's customarily first called by
Casting for small, beginning role suggestions of people the Casting Offices don't yet know who
have some of these special skills.
All Ethnicities (All agents, casting directors and managers are in need of ETHNIC TALENTS)
Unlike Hollywood, no agencies here specialize in single Ethnicities. But those with medium Commercial, Modeling and
Print Departments maintain large lists of most Ethnic Groups.

THE DIFFERENCES IN SOME AGENCY LISTS
Talent Agencies open, close and relocate their offices. Staff members are added, or depart to join other
agencies or open their own. Some glossy-cover publications must go to press too far ahead of their issue month,
therefore contain none of the end of the previous month's and none of the current month's early weeks' changes until
their next issue. Our new issues are published the last day or each month for the coming month, and we revise listings
with late-breaking changes during the month as we reprint for bookstores' reorders.
Some publications lists continually omit a number of agencies for their own reasons (we do not include Model
Mgmt. Companies in this publication. They are in our Personal Managers Directory & Models Mailing Labels on
our website www.nyactingagents.com). Even the Union lists, issued once a month or even less often, may not contain
the latest changes. Use this publication for the latest information available.
Our publication and Hendersons mailing labels are usually very dependable. But for explicit details of the
agencies, their current staff names, their different departments, the areas for which they represent, information about
their longevity and industry history, and what talents they're currently seeking. We strongly recommend this
publication, as many other industry people and publications do.
Most mailing lists printed in hard or soft cover books will be woefully out of date because they sit on store
shelves for long periods. Some are already out of date when printed due to manufacturing time spans. This publication
is self published to make more frequent update revisions possible.

INFORMATION FOR NEWER/LESS INFORMED


ACTORS
Actors normally can't be represented for professional Theatre, Film or Television employments by agencies
that are not franchised by the applicable performance unions. AEA (for professional legitimate theatre), SAG/AFTRA
(for all filmed performance, whether motion picture or television programming) (for taped or live performance, radio
and recording fields). At this time, SAG/AFTRA members may be represented by currently non-franchised agents
(until a new Franchise Agreement is negotiated and becomes effective). SAG/AFTRA Franchised agents can make no
charge of clients beyond the 10% commission.
If an agent requires Photography by a Specific Photographer as a condition of representation, notify the
Agency Dept. of one or more of the unions if you're a member. If you're not yet a member of one or more of the
unions, simply look for another agent, also inform us, NEW YORK AGENCIES 212-472-2292. If you're subjected to
Inappropriate Office Behavior in an Agency Interview whether sexual or otherwise, again, file a full report with the
union offices if a union member; if not a union member, report the occurrence in letter form to our Actor Information
Service, to help us protect other actors from the same experience. If the behavior is aggravated, report the occurrence to
the Vice Officers of the Police Department of the City or Borough in which the incident occurred, again also reporting
it in writing to our Actor Information Service. If a talent agency asks for Money Up Front as a condition of signing
you, or for any purpose after signing you. That agency is in violation of the franchising unions' regulations. Even if not
a union member and therefore the union's Agency Dept. can't act officially on your complaint, it would be noted by
them and if other similar complaints are received by them it's possible that action might be taken by the one or more
Agency Depts. to investigate and stop such practices.

OUR CODINGS AND SYMBOLS


The following individual listings of the agencies are described below. Our quick-check symbol (X) clearly indicates
Openings, Closings, Moves, and where Staff Changes have occurred. The changes simply appear in the listings. So
many of those changes occur continually throughout the agency arena, therefore we re-code each month. Almost all
agencies would eventually be coded if not. We do make those changes quickly in the listings, as we get them from the
agencies throughout each month and they're updated in the next subsequent reprinting for bookstores.

20
NEW ACTIVITY INFORMATION
The following symbol appears before agencies' titles, for quick locating of new information for mailing list or
follow-up purposes. Agencies' new information will bear the following graphic symbol:

X = RECENT MAJOR CHANGES

AGENCY FRANCHISE INFORMATION


It's important that actors be informed about the specific franchises held by the agencies, to judge the either
limited or vast ranges of agencies' operations; also judge, where they may exist, the sometimes wide abysses
between what some agencies claim to handle and what they're franchised to handle officially (Agencies
handling Musical and Variety aren't required to be franchised).Some Franchised Agencies may employ Non-
Franchised Agents. Actors should inquire within each individual Agency.

FRANCHISE / OTHER SYMBOLS


ATA and/or indicate members these two franchised organizations.
NATR of
S/A means SAG/ AFTRA franchised
E means Equity franchised
W means Writers Guild of America franchised
P means Producers Guild of America franchised
D means Directors Guild of America representation
PKG means franchise to Package Film, Television & Theatre
Productions
V indicates handling Variety Artists / No franchise required
of
M indicates handling Musical Artists / No franchise required
of
Those letters, immediately following agencies' titles i.e., HOBBS TALENT AGENCY S/A, E, WPD 95
River St., Island City 00207 (800-243-2667) indicate that the Hobbs Agency is franchised by SAG/AFTRA with the
contract for motion pictures and television that is filmed, and represent for Commercials, Modeling, Print and Voice-
Over, or taped television, radio and recorded performances. Is also franchised by E (Equity) for legitimate theatre and is
franchised to represent WPD (Writers, Producers and Directors). If a V appears, the agency represents Variety Talent
(Club Acts, Magicians, etc); needs no AGVA franchise and an M shows the agency represents Musicians, Musical,
Concert and Recording Artists, etc., but needs no AGMA or AFM franchise.
Where an agency specializes in one representation more than others it may also handle, that specialization is
shown in bold print, also listed in the specializing categories on pages 15 and 16.
We think you'll find these identifying items helpful, and we're happy to do the continuously time taking work
every month to provide them in an always up-dated and accurate manner toward giving our readers as much information
as we can in quick find form.

SAG/AFTRA IS NOW OFFICIALLY ONE UNION


In the following General Listings, agencies franchised by SAG/AFTRA and not affiliated with either NATR or ATA
are identified with an "S/A" following their titles. Those franchised by AEA are identified with an "E". Those agencies
also representing Writers, franchised by WGA are identified with a W. If they also represent Directors and Producers,
WPD follows their company name. If they are also franchised for and conduct Packaging of Productions, PKG
appears. If they prominently represent Musical Artists, an M will appear. To indicate prominent representation of
Variety Performers, a V appears. No union member can do any non-union work!

Editors Note

Unfortunately scams have been involved in our industry for years and will in all
likelihood continue to be. In todays economy especially, the number of scams has increased
significantly, not only in the tri-state area but throughout major cities in the US.
The intelligent actor should always be aware that the only time any up front money
should be paid is for training and to have your picture and resume on your agents website.

The investment we have discovered that fully explains and provides the best information
to help actors avoid scams is the DVDs available on our website. View the free previews at
www.nyactingagents.com, or www.hendersonenterprises.com

Remember that it is your career and your responsibility to protect yourself and insure that
you are not victimized by a waste of time and money scam. If it sounds too good to be true, it
probably is! The most expensive is not necessarily the best; you should always check everything
out and ask around before investing your hard earned money and valuable time!

The Actors Journey Project (DVD Sets)


Adults and Kids

First time in the history of the Entertainment Industry


Over 100 industry Professionals have come together
