---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NOW FOR HOW TO SUBMIT
To be considered for representation by our agents, please submit one recent headshot (or snapshot) via mail or email. Call each agency and ask which they prefer.


Please include the following with your submissions:
  • Parents Contact Phone Number & Child's
  • Height
  • Weight
  • Hair & Eye Color
  • Performance Experience
  • Relevant Training
  • Awards
  • Special Skills (sports, foreign languages, etc) 
  • Date of Birth (for children and babies)
  • Slate Shot and short 30 second personality reel.
If an agent is interested in meeting you, you will be contacted to schedule an appointment in their office. You will be interviewed, given a scene to read, and a decision will be made by one or more agents in the agency.

Agents from these same agencies are invited to showcases that charge $2,000 - $17,000. Agents and agenices have no idea what these companies charge. I do because every time I attend one I pull the parents aside and ask what they spent to be there. They usually tell me there were told not to discuss how much they spent and then they tell me. Most of the time I am appalled! The cost is outlandish.  It's true these showcase systems bring 10-20 of the top agents into the same room and give hundreds of kids an opportunity to do their monologues and scenes in front of the agents. But you don't need to pay $5,000 or more to do that. In LA these same agents show up at workshops all over town doing smaller showcases with 5-10 agents at a time for under $1,000. You can find these workshops throughout NYC at various acting schools like these three at:

IMPORTANT
Get it? You don't have to pay thousands of dollars to meet Agents.

But one thing you should know is that Agents are looking for VERY specific things. Qualities that make them choose one child over another. To find out what these are in detail so you can prepare your child for success and the opportunity to be repped by a great agent at a great agency you need to read my book "HOW TO BREAK YOUR KIDS INTO SHOW BUSINESS." My e-Book is 100 pages, filled with critical information that will give you a serious advantage. Also, you will find sample cover letters, sample resumes and headshots, as well as learn what types of acting classes your child should be in that will impress Agents. And most importantly you will learn how to help your child stand out in your meetings with Agencies. Believe me that can make or break the deal. If you come to these agents showcases unprepared you are NOT going to get anywhere, and that is a fact. We are looking for prepared kids who are ready to work.
