4th Annual Talent Showcase

Call for Submissions

The Network Austin Mixer is pleased to present our 4th Annual Talent Showcase featuring YOU on Wednesday, December 13th!!!

Just complete the form below.

Central Texas is rich with as-yet-unseen talent. Here’s your chance to show us all what you’ve got, so don’t hold back. But don’t delay, because only the first 25 completed & confirmed entries will make the show. And the deadline for submissions will be here before you know it: Thursday, November 30th.

Anyone age 12 or older is invited to sing, dance, play an instrument, do stand-up, a monologue, or whatever talent you wish to showcase. Just keep in mind that young people will be in the room, so keep it “G-rated”. If your act includes music, on-screen visuals, or any special equipment, then bring it early on the day of performance so it can be set up and ready to roll. And be aware that at 3 minutes you’ll get the hook, so keep it short & sweet.

Fill in the form below to register. Afterward, if you have any change of plans whatsoever, then contact us asap at donise@acastingplace.net. And make sure your email program recognizes that email address in case we contact you with any additional questions at any time.

Panel of Talent Agents #2

Talent Agent Panel, February 2017

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.

 

Last Month

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!

 

Come on out and join us on Wednesday, February 8, 2017 at Mister Tramps. Arrive early for a cold margarita or a special cocktail made just for us. Network and meet new friends with like minds, enjoy a fun-filled evening with other guests, and get the info you need to know about these talent agents, what they do, what they are looking for, landing the roles, upcoming projects and more!
