Every actor dreams of making it big in the movie industry, being swarmed by fans and paparazzi but very few of the countless people that enter the industry each year manage to make it to the screen. Tough competition and failure to get castings is the biggest problem that new actors and many old ones too have to face.
The solution, particularly for aspiring actors looking to enter the movie industry is an acting agency. There are many advantages that an actor represented by an agency has over an independent actor. Firstly, and most importantly being represented by an agency brings the advantage of the agent. An agent is a movie industry insider who has years of inside information about how things work, how to get things done and the contacts to boot.
An agent can prove crucial in landing interviews and meetings with studio executives, directors, producers and other big shots. Meeting all these people helps an actor as these people make a note of your presence because of the agent and remember you for future openings in productions. It is a great way to get the foot through the door.
Another advantage that the agency brings is that being associated with an agency pretty much guarantees continuous work to the actor. This is a great advantage because many agencies have long running contracts with the major production houses which ensure that actors from their agency are given preference for roles in that producer’s productions. This means that once the agent ensures that your headshots reach the desks of the production house the name of the agency on your portfolio ensures that you get called to the audition. The talent that you showcase takes things further.
Another aspect of this stability that an agency brings to the actor is that the actor is more free to pursue roles on the basis of creative opinion rather than money because in a way that is handled by the agency which keeps looking for the best offers for the actor. An agency also takes care of all the hassle of contracts, invoices and payments to the actor and conveniently leaves the actor free from all the hassle behind arrangements and scheduling.
Being represented by an agency leaves an actor free from the tedious task of making himself or herself noticed in the industry through networking and leaves the actor free to make a name through their acting prowess instead.
