Difference Between Licensed Talent Agents, Personal Managers and Casting Companies
Licensed Talent Agents represent you, are licensed by the Department of Labor and are SAG/Franchised; allowing them to represent union and non union talent and earn commissions when you book a job. Between 10-20% is the norm and they will also charge their client another 10-20% for a booking fee. SAG is a mandatory 10% to the agent. Many require talent to pay for hosting of their headshots and actors demo on the agents site. Normally a minimal yearly fee (around $100) and talent must have either the experience or ability to meet their requirements (photos, acting classes, etc.). Agents sign on as many qualified actors as possible due to the ever changing schedules of actors. The more they can book on a job the more money they make...this is a business!!

Personal Managers may take on minimal clients under their roster and are a more personal management option found in places like Los Angeles and bigger cities! They can work with the local SAG/Franchised agents as well to help secure projects to each state. They take on the roll of an as agent as well but are not required to have a SAG/Franchised license. Personal Managers may take a commission for fees incurred while marketing you and will keep close tabs on you to ensure you have the proper tools to succeed.

Casting Directors and Casting Companies source talent from Licensed Talent Agents, Personal Managers and Real People Avenues (holding open casting calls, facebook, craigslist, and various newsfeeds) as well as their own database to secure the proper talent requested by each production. Casting directors and casting companies do not take commissions from talent earnings but are paid by the production companies and advertising agencies. Some have an online listing site like us here at www.movieworknow.com you can join for a minimal fee as an actor or new talent seeking opportunities or just something to do for fun when you have the time. Many actors got their start doing extra work!! Surprisingly as well, many of our talent are chosen for speaking roles, day player roles, modeling gigs and front and center opportunities. MovieWOrkNow is versed in SAG/Franchise castings, real people castings, actors, models and extras castings of all ages. As of right now we are not holding in person auditions but many of our clients are doing online castings and holding auditions in their own offices to keep the costs down.

Save the Date - Arizona Production Association Online Membership Meeting is 2/9/2021

Location: Arizona

Application Deadline: Tuesday, February 09, 2021

Dear MovieWork Now Talent,

MovieWork Now Highly supports the Arizona Production Association and invites you to attend their annual online membership meeting happening on February 9, 2021. They are instrumental in bringing productions to the state of Arizona and have been for many, many years. If you are a filmmaker, director, agent, hair/ makeup artist, camera operator, wardrobe stylist, production company, it is a must have and a great place to advertise your behind the scenes skill(s) within the film/TV production community and get business!  This is a fee based platform but highly worth it if you reside in Arizona. Here you go...one more resource to help us connect!

MovieWork Now Casting Team

Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the board of the Arizona Production Association, I would like to extend a personal invitation to join us for our annual membership meeting coming up Tuesday, February 9, at 7:00 pm.

Our annual event is the first opportunity in the new year for our members and all of Arizona's production community to get together, hear from our state and local film offices, and meet the APA's board and committee leaders who will carry us through the current calendar year. We will reflect and take stock of what Arizona production looked like in 2020, how our industry wildly had to adapt for survival, and how we can all move forward together into the future.

In order to continue keeping a group this size safe and healthy, this year our event will be completely remote via Zoom. We're eliminating your drive time, getting you in on time and skipping the line, and you can have your beverage of choice in hand. (We will all miss the BBQ!) And you know what - let's look at this as a great chance to lean into the convenience of taking this call from the comfort of your own home or office, and we are delighted to easily include guests from across our great state of Arizona to attend.

This event welcomes both members of the APA and guests alike. If you are an existing member, THANK YOU for your support and continuing to be a part of our organization. If you are new to Arizona or unfamiliar with our organization, we welcome you and encourage you to be part of the AZ community and join in as a member of the APA. There is power in numbers, and the APA is assembled as the foundation of neighborly support to champion each other and our industry across all of Arizona. Together, we have a louder voice.

Don't make excuses - get in, get on, and join us. Be part of something bigger than yourself. We look forward to seeing you all on the 9th!

Registered is required, and you can do that HERE!

Cheers!

Rachel Neil Davidson

President of the Board of Directors 2020-2021
