  • Agency does not require printed composite cards or headshots accept for auditions. Keeping up with printed bulk comp cards are pricey and must be updated often. Instead, we use a digital comp card on the profile system that can be edited and printed from your home or office at anytime, giving you the option of changing looks as needed per audition without the bulk of one look. The agency will help you set up your online comp card. You can have one look or several each time, depending on the casting you are attending.

These online portfolios become packages that our team sends to clients (to include online content such as: unlimited photos, demos, reels, voice overs, music samples or music videos, tear sheets, hosting videos, sports or entertainment footage to promote the talent and to showcase their abilities. Your cost for the profile is nominal at $23/month to cover the web hosting and management which is subscribed to and provided by third party service separate from the agency)

  • gas to and from auditions- travel and gas are not covered for auditions or bookings by the agency. if a specific booking covers transportation, each casting will dictate that information.
