Is Latitude a talent agency?

No, Latitude Talent Studios is not an agency! We work with models and actors of all experience levels by connecting talent with the tools, marketing and development to help start or advance a career in entertainment. While we connect talent to castings opportunities like a typical agency, we do not collect a commission from booked work, allowing talent to pick and choose castings they wish to attend.

Does Latitude guarantee that I will book castings?
There is no guarantee in any industry. While Latitude does have the resources to connect talent to opportunities, it is ultimately up to the casting client on who they choose to move forward with. It is also up to the talent to ensure they put forth the work needed to create their own success.

Do I have to pay to become a model or actor?
