Finding an agent is a lot like dating. Just because someone looks “good on paper” doesn’t mean they’re the right partner for you. The same is true for finding that special agent or manager to represent you to casting directors, producers and directors.
It’s important to have good chemistry with your representation, but a lot of actors overlook the big picture when they are deciding on who to sign with.
In this week’s #SignWithAnAgent video, Acting and Career Coach Ethan Paulini explains why it’s better to sign with a lower level agent you have a great rapport with than a higher level agent that leaves you feeling frustrated.
Get ready to start thinking outside the resume for your next agent!
