Panel of Talent Agents #2
As promised, we have started 2017 just as we start every year: with a BANG! On Wednesday, January 11th we featured the first of two panels of talent agents. Our next panel takes the stage on Wednesday, February 8th, and will consist of the following agents representing their corresponding agencies:
☆ Jason Wasner, Managing Partner, Acclaim Talent
☆ Erin Franklin, Owner, Agence Talent
☆ Cynthia Robbins, Owner, BLVD Talent
☆ Linda Alcazar, Owner, Condra Artista
☆ Romie Szal, Owner, K Hall Agency
This is a must for everyone in the entertainment industry, and especially anyone serious about an acting career should make it a top priority to attend our mixer on Wednesday, February 8th.
The talent agents will be introduced onstage at 6:45PM and begin by providing a brief overview of their respective agencies & experience, after which the floor will open to an audience Q&A.
Non-represented talent currently seeking representation is encouraged to bring at least 5 sets of same-size headshots & résumés stapled back-to-back for placement at a designated table upon arrival, preferably prior to the beginning of the program, so that each agent can have your submission package to review when they leave.
We are extremely grateful to the panel of agents who so generously offered their time and insights to our packed house on Wednesday January 11th. We THANK all of you! January’s panel consisted of owners of the following agencies: The Atherton Group (TAG), Collier Talent, DVA Talent, Tory Christopher Group, Variant Talent
Texas Production Incentives:
As Texas Entertainment Industry (TEI) has been announcing and as Heather Page, Director of the Texas Film Commission, informed us during her great presentation on Wednesday, December 14th, funding for the Texas Moving Image Industry Incentive Program (TMIIIP) is currently in consideration by the Texas Legislature, so we must all contact our senators & representatives to make sure they realize the importance of this program and the need for additional funding. Also, contact your friends and family in other Texas cities and ask them to do the same. Funding for the TMIIIP depends to a large extent on feedback from Texans throughout the state. Do your part now to help ensure we keep the incentive program and make it better. Read more here, here, here, and here.Thanks!
