What Now? Welcome back to part two of What Now? A series that we are dedicating to be informative and fun. Each week we’ll present you with a step-by-step about the processes of talent and agent.
Last week on ‘What Now’ we went over the initial steps of applying to an agency. This included tips for the pictures to submit and where to submit (click this link here to access our application page). If you happened to have missed last week’s article, you can catch up HERE.
You’ve been invited to an evaluation, What Now?
So, you’ve submitted your photos, ( which are clear, free of props, and present your as your most natural self) and you’ve been lucky enough to get a call back from an agent. They are interested! That’s amazing, huge hurdle for some, but you’ve gotten through it! Not so bad, right? Congratulations!
Second thing you need to know is that the evaluation is like an interview. This is not the time to be “on”. Be yourself! Honesty and clear communication with your agent makes for the best and easiest relationship.
When you first meet with an agent there are a few specific things that they are looking for, mainly, the agent will want to get to know you, your personality and your disposition.
Just like your submitted photos, you’ll want to come to an evaluation as natural as possible. It is advisable that you when you come to an evaluation with an agent that you avoid heavy makeup, coloured contacts, and loose or baggy clothing. We want to see you in all your natural glory with out distractions.
This is a chance for your potential agent to get to know you. Our agents at MAX have been representing talent for many years, and the top comment or request about our talent is they are is a amiable, presentable and ambitious. Not only will you get along with your agent famously, but with a great attitude, you’ll also have a greater impact on casting directors and potential clients.
If the agent chooses to take you on, and you choose to be represented by the agent and subsequent company, you’ll learn and have explained and roles and responsibilities an agent and yourself have going forward.
You rocked your evaluation! the next step will be coming back for an orientation! Tune in next week when we’ll go over what happens in the second meeting with your agent!
