ICONS CONSULTING: TALENT AGENCY
At ICONS INTERNATIONAL, the specialists in emerging markets and innovation, we have the strategic role of bringing together the “Demand” (TV & Film production, Events, Sports events, Music events and much more) and the “Offer” (actresses, actors, authors, film directors, musicians, models, producers, professional athletes, writers and other people in various entertainment businesses). We are well established and our success is determined by networks upon networks of contacts as well as having access to professional casting services. Many of these casting resources are not available to the general public.
We are the talent agent, or booking agent, “par excellence” that has already been chosen by leading companies and have found many jobs for authors, film directors, musicians, models, producers, professional athletes, writers, actors and actresses interested in working theatrically (stage, film or television) as well as in commercials.
We engage the “talents” (actors, models, voice-over artists, etc.) and the “buyers” (casting directors, advertising agencies, TV & Film production companies, photographers and direct clients, etc.).
Our major role is to promote talents to the buyers, submitting talents that have the appropriate age, race, sex, look and talent that the buyer is seeking for his/her project. We submit actor’s head-shots or the model’s composite card or portfolio to buyers, organize auditions (the talent is the only one who can get the job through the audition) and coordinate the details of wardrobe and directions as well as negotiate the contract or pay.
In cohesion to our company policies in the matter of transparency, we anticipate that for our work we do not take charges for representation but negotiate case by case a commission that may vary from 10 to 30% of the gross contracted amount, depending on the profile of the candidates and the job to be done.
However we may recommend steps that will cost money, especially when talent is starting out. At the first introduction we may suggest new photos, promo-video’s, training, test auditions and casting calls, professional acting classes, get you involved in some acting at the local scene or community drama club / theatre (getting a little experience under your belt), workshops or other promotional solutions for attracting good contacts for new talent. We have selected the best professionals (best photographers) or shots to make into head-shots and much more.
Apart from the above direct expenses, if we incur and cover upfront costs, over and above our contracted commission (travel expenses or other), we will ask to be reimbursed for these last expenses only after the talent begins work.
We are always seeking for Acting Roles (Cast) and associated support roles:
- Male Lead Actors
- Female Lead Actors
- Stunt performers
- Stunt Doubles
… and support people for Actors:
- Dialogue coach
- Stunt coordinator
- Make Up
- Hair Stylist
- Costume Designer
- Personal Assistant
