Re: Different managers for different projects?

I can't think of a single manager who'd go for that arrangement. If a rep wants you in their stable - they'll want all of you. They need to make money off of all your projects, otherwise it isn't...

Re: Imagine Artist Management

Bumping this out of curiosity. Now that a little time has passed, any word yet on Imagine's management branch? Anyone here have the chance to interact with any of the managers there?

Re: Looking for an agent

Sure, it's definitely not a hard rule. In fact, I'll slightly amend my last statement. OP should have at least 2 good script samples. They may not even need to show the second one. BUT if an agent or...

Yeah, I think a good rule of thumb is to never compare the publishing and film/tv industries. Theyíre just too different.

For OP, I think it also depends if itís a management company vs an agency...

Re: PSA To All Film Schools Students and Graduates

I mean, there's definitely no clear path and you're right in that it's not absolutely necessary to take a low level job in film/tv.

But as someone who currently works as an assistant (currently to...

Iím glad you two had a healthy dialogue but my gut instinct is that you need to set an internal deadline for yourself this time around. If...

I actually don't think it looks too fishy - mostly standard language.

Firstly, I'd save your money on services like those. With a 30 day free trial on IMDB Pro you can do what those companies offer but yourself and for a fraction of the price. Query services are a rip...

Re: Seeking Suggestions for What to Ask When Contacting Industry Execs Cold

For agents, 10:30 am has always been a weird sweet spot for me.

For managers, between 10 and 10:30 or between 3pm and 3:30 pm has great Ben me the best results.
