Q: How does an agency work?
A: As an agency it is our job to maintain relationships with industry professionals, who are looking to use talent in a variety of projects. An agency receives casting calls from some of these professionals, that are not posted to the public. We also seek out local projects from small businesses, and explore many other avenues in order to establish work for our talent.
Q: If I'm represented, how often will I work?
A: Just booking an audition is a big win. This is not Hollywood, therefore it is highly unlikely that you will be working as a full time actor or model.
If you have no experience and are booking auditions 3-4 times a year, you are doing well in this market. The more experienced actor can expect to get auditions more often. It is hard to say how often you will work; while getting an audition is a win, it is the actors job to get the callback and book the job.
