Great news! MAX Agency’s resident cutie, Kimoni D has booked a commercial with clothing retailer, Mark’s!
Mark’s is a Canadian clothing company that’s been around since the late seventies. It all started in Calgary, Alberta when a former retail executive with the Hudson’s Bay Company named Mark Blumes opened the first store. Originally called Mark’s Men’s Work Warehouse, this retail chain has been through several name changes. For a period of time it was called Work Warehouse, but was later rebranded as Mark’s Work Warehouse when they began selling clothing for women as well (sometimes simply branded as Mark’s).
Mark’s initially sold work clothes for labor-oriented jobs but later expanded it’s selection to business casual clothing and sports attire for both women and men. Mark’s sells a series of exclusive brands such as WorkPro, Denver Hayes, WindRiver, BluePine and Dakota. They also sell Levi’s, Lee’s, Point Zero, Dickies and more.
We are so proud of you, Kimoni D! We can’t wait to see the commercial!
MAX Agency Toronto Talent Gina K, Deeyann D and, Kadian T have an audition for TVO network print campaign.
Television is an inescapable part of modern culture. We depend on TV for entertainment, news, education, culture, weather, sports and, music. Educational television such as documentaries can have a positive impact on one’s life. It’s a great way to learn new information. Sometimes they make you think about issues you’ve never considered, issues you might disagree, issues you might find yourself opening up too and sometimes they make you think that nothing is happening beyond you being entertained. TVO is a publicly funded educational English-language television station and media organization in the Canadian province of Ontario. TVO’s acclaimed series of social issue documentaries acquired from around the world are controversial, eye opening, hard hitting and provocative.
Here is a preview of a TVO documentary titled, ‘Water on the table’. A look at the world’s water crisis and how the causes of the depleting water supply is connected to pollution, human rights, and politics.
Best of luck to Max Agency Models at the audition!

The holiday season is upon us. We may still be a few days shy of December, but surely your calendar is already filling up with holiday gatherings, which means the hunt for the perfect outfit to wear begins. The holidays are a great time for fashion, allowing you to wear more ornate, glamorous and fancy outfits than the other seasons allow. Here are MAX Agency’s fashion picks to help you ace your next party.
The right sequin dress will make you stand out at any holiday party for all the right reasons. The key to rocking this look is all in the cut and colour of the dress. We love this look on Jessica Szohr below. The length is perfect for showing just the right amount of skin while the long sleeves keep it modest and the gold works perfectly with her skin tone and hair.
Sometimes it’s the little details that make an outfit. Don’t be afraid to accessorize during the holidays. Earrings are a great way to dress up a plain outfit especially if you opt to wear your hair up. The holidays are the one time of year it’s acceptable to go over the top, don’t be afraid to take advantage of earrings you’d usually be hesitant to wear. We chose these red ruby earrings that would look great with a matching red lip as well as these black and gold feather earrings that will accentuate the neck.
In a rush to a party and have nothing to wear? Don’t forget about the little black dress; a staple for all occasions, the holidays included. This dress can be heavily accessorized for a more dramatic look, or for a more simple look, wear your hair in a high bun and pair with a festive bright red lip for a pop of colour.

Nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something. It’s always great to find out about new causes, especially causes that make you eat chocolate! MAX Toronto Talent Amira S, Kariah L, Amos N and Ashley R have an audition for this amazing cause and charity campaign with The Bicycle Factory and Cadbury Canada.
Best known for their chocolate Easter eggs, the Cadbury Corporation continues their fundraising drive to build 5,000 bikes a year for children in rural Ghana with The Bicycle Factory. Cadbury will show Canadians how easy it can be to make a big difference in the lives of others through small, every day purchases like chocolate, gum and candy. By urging their consumers to enter the UPC bar code numbers from Cadbury products into their website. One bike is made up of 100 parts, meaning it takes 100 UPC entries to build a bike.
Bicycles serve as an important means of transportation in the developing world. Bikes also do not rely on fossil fuel, and can help transport people and food on bumpy or unpaved roads. The fundraiser is a chance to “give back to the people who give us so much,” says Cadbury, who “sources most of their cocoa from Ghana today.” Since establishing the program in 2009, Cadbury has collected enough bar codes to produce 10,237 bikes.
Here Cadbury showcases the utility in their advertising campaign in which a girl uses her bike as a delivery van, ambulance, water truck, and school bus.
Best of luck to MAX Toronto Actors at the audition!
Depression causes a person to feel sad, angry, or hopeless, have low self-esteem, or lose interest in things they used to enjoy. Depression can affect people of all ages and is different for every person. Women are twice as likely as men to experience depression. And Max Agency Toronto Talent Maureen Hummel has an audition to be the new face for PRISTIQ print ad.
PRISTIQ is a prescription medication that has been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of depression in adults. PRISTIQ is an SNRI, or serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor. No one knows for sure what causes depression. But many experts believe that depression results when certain chemicals in the brain are out of balance. These chemicals, called neurotransmitters, relay messages from brain cell to another.
Best of luck to MAX Toronto Model Maureen at the audition!

MAX Agency Toronto would like to put the spotlight this week on Sal C., one of our most promising young talents. Sal joined MAX agency Toronto in 2009 at the age of seven. For the past two years he has been busy auditioning for numerous jobs for clients ranging from Rice Crispies to Aleve and Kraft. Most notably, Sal has booked jobs with Sobeys, and just recently, Sal landed a spot in a Heart and Stroke Foundation print ad. Sal’s versatility and ability to audition for any job ranging from commercials to print ads is an attribute that has benefited him tremendously in the industry. We can’t wait to report on his future success!
Here’s what Sal’s mom had to say about MAX Agency Toronto:
“It is both mine and Sal’s dream for him to star in a movie one day but I didn’t know where to start him on his journey to achieve this dream. A friend told us about Max Agency and it was the luckiest day of our lives. Upon signing with Max Agency, Sal finally had the opportunity to do some work. I am so proud of him and so grateful for his agent and all her hard work because without her he would be nowhere. For this we are extremely thankful!”
How do those actors and actresses memorize hundreds of lines? Memorizing lines takes practice and constant repetition. However, there are a few ways to make the memorization process run smoothly and quickly.
Read Out Loud (And Repeat, Repeat, Repeat):
For most performers, there is no short cut to memorizing lines. To learn lines, an actor must recite the play out loud, over and over again. Most rehearsals encourage this by running through the lines or having a read through. Record Your Lines: Because there is often not enough rehearsal time, many performers find
ways to listen to the plays dialogue during everyday activities. Turn your work-outs, chores, and recreational activities into a read through with the help of your headphones or your i-pod. Aside from constant rehearsals, this method seems to be the most popular way to memorize lines. Use a tape recorder or better yet an MP3 player to capture the lines from each relevant scene. Others opt for recording the lines of fellow cast members, but they leave a blank space so that they can insert their dialogue while listening to the recording.
Think Positively and Don’t Panic! Don’t let the butterflies in your stomach torment you too much. Most people experience stage fright minutes, hours, even weeks before opening night. While a certain amount of nervousness can get the adrenaline going, too much anxiety over lines might hinder an actor’s performance.
Take solace in the fact that if you forget a line once, you will probably never forget that line ever again! Sometimes embarrassment is the strongest and toughest method of memorization!
