My child was with another Agency for 2 1/2 years and got nowhere.  I was foolish enough to pay them $1000.  They never had acting lessons available for her age. She went on cattle call after cattle call. Then we found Cool Blue Talent, thanks to a client of theirs who is very active in the profession making really good money.

They have not charged us to put my daughter's photos on their website (unlike the other Agency). They offer acting, dance, voice and runway lessons.  You don't have to take them, but I did put my child into the acting classes.

Yes, Cool Blue Talent is a part of Fusion Talent Model Search, along with other Agencies in Las Vegas and even one in Canada.  Yes, if you want to be a part of Fusion, you pay to be in it BUT it is not required that you be in it.  I chose to put my daughter in it. She was offered a 3 year contract with one of the "A" list Talent Managers in Los Angeles.

Cool Blue Talent is sending my daughter on auditions for the local area.  Her Talent Manager is sending her on auditions in the LA area.  CBT seems to be a caring, professional organization. Kim Harris is the owner and I've never seen her anything but professional.  

I'm very happy with them and find these rip-off reports to be completely untrue.

REAL FACTS ABOUT COOL BLUE TALENT

AUTHOR: Crystal Featherstone - (United States of America)


I was asked many times to write false good reports about Cool Blue Talent in the 5 years I worked there. Kim Harris has

no compassion for anyone. This describes an entity that does not even exist at Cool Blue Talent. You can find over 1000

people that have dealt with Kim Harris and the fake agent Victor Polk with the criminal drug and domestic violence

background that will attest to the false and shady business practices of Cool Blue Talent and Kim Harris. Below are

honest, and true facts witnessed by many people.

1. Models are told they cannot be paid for 30-60 days after doing a job. FACT: The agency is paid 3-4 weeks prior.

2. Kim Harris submits her own children before real talented kids when real good auditors come through.

3. Fact: Kim Harris does not pay employees that work for her; The list includes photographers, family members, acting coaches, and anyone that is not one of her bratty drug abusing children.

4. Fusion is a real gig yet, most will not land anything and when they tell you we are picking your kids because he/she is
great and has a really good chance that is usually a lie so Kim Harris can profit.

5. Rielle Harris is troubled girl who has no real experience as an actress, photographer, and singer. She is not qualified to
teach anyones children. Her name on a resume would mean nothing to a real AGENT/ DIRECTOR/and, OR FILM-CASTOR.

6. Many times I watched Kim Harris lie to parents and tell them their childrens checks from a commercial had not come in...When in fact they had weeks ago, and her excuse was --"I have to pay my bills first". FACT

7. Kim Harris has been filmed vandalizing her own nephews car in front of her business. This case is being brought to the LVPD. This is not the actions of a compassionate woman by far.

8. Kim Harris tells models that his or her address is wrong in the data base and she needs to wait until the check comes back before she will send it out again. (She sometimes never does).

9. There are over 30 complaints in the BBB for non-payment of clients on record. This is legal facts.

10. Victor D. Polk is a convicted drug dealer, car theft, and Crystal Meth user. Cool Blue is paying to keep under the table, he has no license as an agent, and no real experience. He robbed his mother home (Kim Harris) while on drugs with Ashley Beroski the girlfriend (not wife as they lie and tell people). Kim kicked out to Texas and he now he is back and
still on liquor and cocaine. FACT.  Both Ashley, Rielle, and Victor can take a hair test and all would be found with
narcotics (illegal) in their systems.

THIS COMPANY IS A SCAM. IT IS RAN BY AN UNETHICAL BUSINESS WOMAN WHO MANY PEOPLE IN LAS VEGAS HAVE

REPORTED. NOW I HAVE TO. THE KITTY IS OUT OF THE BAG! STAY AWAY IF YOU REALLY WANT TO SUCCEED AS AN

ACTOR/MODEL.

Truth About Cool Blue Talent

AUTHOR: Cathy - (United States of America)

Kim Harris, the Owner of Cool Blue Talent is one of the most compassionate, honest people I have met in this business.  I know for a fact that she goes out of her way to keep her talent happy and pays them ASAP. 

My little one has been with her Talent agency for the past 5 years and Kim Harris has never been anything but good to her.  I can go to Kim at any time with any questions I Have about the business and she will give me an honest answer that has always helped me solve any issues I have had. 

We have a top Agent and Manager in LA, thanks to Fusion.  It was our choice to go to Fusion, we were never pushed and it is very inexpensive compared to any other function of this type.  It has definitely paid off as she has been working on a regular basis. 

Kim offers classes at a reasonable price, it's your choice if you want to take your child there.  No one pushes you into it.  Your child can be on their web site and never set foot into a class there. The children that go to classes and the children that don't go to classes get submitted for local jobs equally. 

I would recommend Cool Blue Talent to anyone that wants to see if this is the direction your child would like to go in.  I have always felt like my child was in a safe environment while she was involved in any function at Cool Blue.
