Finding a legitimate talent agency in South Florida may sound easier than it seems...
Many times, parents are skeptical of model and talent agencies wondering if they are legit or going to take advantage and sell them something. Please know that it is important that you research each agency. The best way to do this is google the agency or company. The truth is that if something sounds to good to be true, it usually is.
Legitimate agencies and companies in the entertainment industry do NOT need to advertise on the radio.
As an independent producer who works for Disney and Universal Studios, I have met with thousands of aspiring talent and their families over the years.
I have discovered and worked with top stars such as:
Amber Heard (3 Days to Kill with Kevin Costner, Paranoia with Harrision Ford and The Rum Diary with Johnny Depp),
Jake Short (Disney ANT Farm),
Kira Kosarian (Nickelodean's The Thumbermans),
Ryan Newman (Nickelodean's See Dad Run with Scott Baio)
Mitchel Musso (Hannah Montana)
Cade Sutton (Disney new show Kirby Buckets)
The first mistake that parents make is that they DO NOT do their homework.
My other company is Peter Glenn Publications (www.pgdirect.com), which is a 57 year-old entertainment publishing company. Since 1956, we publish what is considered the "bible" of the model and talent industry, which lists legitimate model and talent agencies all over the world from Alabama to Zurich. The Model & Talent Agency Directory is used by agents all over the world. The more important aspect is who "IS" listed and who "IS NOT" listed. If you do not know the industry and are unsure of who to trust, please feel free to contact us.
I served on the Film Florida Education Council for the state of Florida. He has also written a guide for aspiring talent and parents called Talent 101 - The Guide to Breaking Into the Entertainment Industry and Not Get Scammed, with author Marie Anderson, who is credited with discovering such talents as supermodel Cindy Crawford. The article is featured on several film commission websites including the Palm Beach Film Office (www.PBFilm.com).
