Talent On A Budget (TOAB)
A talent agent, or booking agent, is a person who finds jobs for actors, authors, film directors, musicians, models, professional athletes, writers, screenwriters, broadcast journalists, and other professionals in various entertainment or broadcast businesses.
Talent agents work on behalf of their clients to promote and represent their interests, and will typically handle the majority of all interactions between their client and the employer.
In addition, the agent's job is to defend and support the interests of their client. However, having an agent is not required to become an actor, many A-list actors have started their acting career without the help of a talent agent.
To begin, an agent works for a talent agency that is licensed by the state and in some cases, franchised by the union. That gives them the legal right to solicit employment for their clients. It also allows talent agents to negotiate contracts on their behalf. Managers are not allowed to set up auditions or negotiate contracts.
A modelling agency is a company that represents fashion models, to work for the fashion industry. These agencies earn their income via commission, usually from the deal they make with the model and/or the head agency. ... The agencies find work for models by presenting them to designers, photographers, and advertising agencies.
A mother agent or agency is usually the first modelling agency you begin working with when you start your modelling career. A mother agent can also be a scout that discovered you and helped you get your start.
