We all know we want and need one, but what’s the real reason behind having someone in your court, fighting for you too?
You get to be one of the talented actors that has a committed partner in your career. You won’t be on your own anymore.
You’ll gain access to those awesome casting directors and auditions that you otherwise wouldn’t. Stepping up a few rungs on the ladder to reach your dreams happens quicker because you’re part of a team.
The feeling of success that comes from working side by side with your agent towards a common vision – your vision – is realized. The right agent is a faster track to you making a living with your passion and art.
Your resources and relationships will instantly expand. With your combined network of influence you’ll experience the “whole being greater than the sum of its parts”.
Generally your casting opportunities for roles that are a pro-fit will increase. No guessing or submitting to any/every audition possibility on every on-line casting site. You and your agent will have discussed and targeted the roles you’re most likely to book and are appropriate for.
Your agent will “push” for you when needed and get “feedback” on why it didn’t work out when it doesn’t. Not all the time, but certainly when it counts the most. This will speed your career up because you can correct and continue and learn how to make it better for the next audition.
Yep, the benefits of having an agent are plentiful. Keep your eye on the prize and go after the kind of agent that you deserve! Study them and choose wisely…they are not “one size fits all”. Remember a pro-fit means PROFIT!
And up next – What’s in it for them?…YES, you want to know this too!
