AGENTS & MANAGERS.
When I graduated from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, I was not alone in not immediately being signed onto the books of an agent. But, when I graduated it was also a lot easier to be seen by casting directors, and theatre directors without representation.
So, how do you go about seeking representation if they don't immediately come seeking you? What do you look for first, an agent or a manager? Do you need both? What are their roles, and how do those roles differ from London to New York to Los Angeles?
What do they expect from you, but more importantly, what should you expect from them, and how can you best help each other in creating the career path that you want?
There is so much ground to cover here, that it deserves and warrents an episode all on its own, so that we can more fully explore the world of the casting director in Episode 5.
