It’s official. I have representation. I’m now a proud member of elev8‘s talent roster.
I haven’t attended agent/manager workshops in the past, but I received an email from Hollywood Acting Workshops to meet five commercial agents. The attending agencies were among the names members of the Backstage Forum constantly chat about and there was a price break for first time users. So I went for it.
The audition process was unique. They put the agents in a line behind desks at the front of the room and then each person went up one at a time to do their commercial scripts in front of the whole group. You could feel the tension. Thankfully, I’d worked with Chris Game on a commercial script he provided in his scene study class. It’s hilarious. It’s an homage to one of my favorite AT&T commercials. And it worked – laughs from the agents and audience.
I woke up to an email from Kylie MacKenzie the next morning, met last Friday and agreed to move forward with the agency.
Let’s get booking!
