An introduction to Jordyn:
“Allow me to introduce myself! My name is Jordyn Rochwerg and I was the Max Agency intern this summer. My experience at Max Agency taught me many useful skills and life lessons that I’d love to share with anyone interested in working in the film industry.
I am a student at the University of British Columbia going into my fourth year in the Film Studies program. I am also in the Masters of Management program, which helps me couple my interest in film with a degree in business.”
Why she chose to do an internship with MAX:
“During the last few years, I’ve had experiences in various departments within the industry such as casting, marketing, editing and production. The purpose of my journey is to try to acquire as much knowledge and training of the various aspects of the industry in order for me to learn what I love doing the most. Talent management was something that I never had much knowledge of, which is what drew me toward Max Agency. Additionally, Max Agency has such a diverse roster of talented individuals, which I find inspiring for anyone who wants to work in the industry, but is discouraged by their age or appearance.”
Her experience at MAX:
“My main duties at Max Agency required me to assist the booking agent with her daily tasks. This taught me how to exercise my organizational, teamwork and communication skills. During my time with the booking agent, I was also able to gain insight into the lives of many of Max Agency’s wonderful talent. Max Agency has an incredible roster of talented individuals who work extremely hard everyday to achieve their goals. Their dedication and commitment is very inspirational. I love coming in to the office and hearing about all the auditions and projects that our talent have booked!
If I can take anything away from my time at Max Agency, it would be the attributes required to become successful in this industry. At any talent management company, there is a great deal of communication involved, whether it be with talent or casting agents. During my time at Max Agency, I truly enjoyed communicating with individuals who are kind, patient and have positive attitudes. I believe that having these three qualities will shine a light on the true talent of a person. As long as you are kind, patient and positive, you will have nothing to worry about.
Lastly, working at Max Agency was so much fun! The best part of the job is watching other people achieve their dreams. Acting is fun and I loved hearing about experiences whether it be from set or from the audition room. Smiling is contagious and if our talent is happy and having fun then so are we! So don’t forget to smile and enjoy yourself because it makes everyone else happy too! 😀”
