Research

Research for available agencies that are close to your vicinity. The objective of the research is to find an agency that is a good fit. Once you have a suitable list, investigate further. Please find out the clients and their talents and how they accept to be part of a client’s journey.

Read their online reviews because they give a broader picture if the agency is professional with their clients.

Preparation

During the open calls or showing up, you are required to be well-groomed and dress appropriately. You want to prove to an agent you deserve their time.

Please make a list of everything you need. Often the agent will require a portfolio that should have your photos and the projects you have worked on. They will also require a resume.

Know the path that you want your career to take and discuss confidently. Ask the right questions so that they know from the word go your expectations. It is so frustrating to sit down for submission then notice you do not have what they need.

Be yourself

Be yourself when taking photos for submission or going for either an open call or casting. Be the person you are at home, let the waiting rooms not make you nervous. These agents have been in this industry for a long time and have seen it all. Furthermore, you do not know what they are looking for, so do not put up a ‘plastic’ you. Be you!

Follow up

Do not be beat down if you do not get immediate feedback. The agents are busy people, so after around two weeks, it is appropriate to contact them. Appreciate them for allowing you to meet them.

Referral

Agents get overwhelmed with representation requests, so if you can do anything to capture their attention, then go for it. The perfect way is to get a referral. Look for an actor or casting director to speak to their agent to look at your work. There is a possibility they will. Don’t be afraid to seek the favor; it may make a difference.

Invite

When you are working on something, invite the agents. If you are acting in a play or a photoshoot, let it be personal and professional; your outfit. Present yourself like a pro in the industry. Do not give unnecessary stories of where you grew up, your favorite shows, or you were a model in high school. Instead, showcase the people you have worked alongside. Be good because you never know they might take an interest in you. Treat every interaction with equal importance because it is like an interview.

Email

Send a simple and straightforward email; for example, the subject should be ‘Actor Requesting for Representation.’ The email should have links to your voice reel or with two modern portraits. You can also accompany it with your resume. Showcasing your personality in the email can help but what is essential is the projects you have worked on.

Conclusion
