Becoming famous and being seen on the big screen is a dream for most people. Not having to work a typical 9-to-5 job, traveling the world and and filming in exotic locations seems so easy.
Every year, thousands of experienced models and actors try their hand
in New York in hopes to getting signed by a top modeling agency or talent manager. The harsh reality is that major agencies have extremely specific criteria in which they sign. For actors, having a talent manager is the ultimate objective.
The best piece of advice that any talent looking to get started in this business should take is to be realistic in their goals. If your ultimate goal is to just become famous, the industry may not be for you.
If your goal is to meet people network and build your craft then you should consider giving modeling or acting a try.
Getting signed by a top agency or talent manager is almost impossible for new talent that do not have the correct materials to get started. You cannot expect many personal managers to sign a brand-new actor who does not have a resume, or for a modeling agency or manager to sign a talent that has never done a photo shoot.
