Agency 89 claims to be the only liscensed modelling agency in nebraska. it also claims to offer many oppurtunities, have many connections and be the best way to get your foot in the door. What I found was that this is all part of the propaganda to get you to sign on. after auditioning and joining, you are put into a class which feels all but organized. The size of the group is far too large and therefore destroys the concept of intimate learning, which they offer. each segment of the class is alotted fifteen minutes, in which information is hastilly given, usually on how and when to complete assignments.
before an individual can proceed into the "promotion" side of the agency, they must fufill a certain number of requirements (i.e. getting jobs on your own, making a resume of this and recruiting five people to sign on) all of which seem to be a pyramid scheme in the making. the agency lacks any kind of real structure, and claims to want only the best. once accepted you have only to look around the room and see that not many qualify. In fact, one of my classmates i found online soliciting himself. that hardly represents a group of people i want to be a part of. the "school" is only vaguely mentioned in the pitch, but seemed to me their primary function.
Agency Eighty Nine is no new creature, it is simply better at disguising itself. it is a very poor modelling school that will promote you for a scant year, take 32% of your earnings and waste at least five months of your time for the low price of only 3,000 dollars (plus interest at about 1000). It makes you or your children shamelessly promote the fraud and brainwashes it's students into proliferating their friends' minds with it's seductive jargon. Agency 89 also tries to enforce a 500 dollar "buyout" just as an insurance policy (speaking of, it also makes you sign a waiver in case you fall of the runway), which i was informed of after quitting the course.
it only took me one look to know that i was being scammed. PLEASE!!! avoid this agency at all costs!!! it is not legitimate and has already incurred one complaint with the bbb!!!! It is not a viable resource in the industry, rather it is yet another in a long line of fasion scams, designed to sucker hopeful young models, and drain their parent's wallets.
