I came into an interview with Dream Makers Studios and I had an awful experience! I'm a brand new model and I didnt exavtly know what to expect. First off, the place was in shambles, and in a bad neightborhood. For lack of a better word, it was really shady! She made me feel bad about my looks, and promised to get the ball rolling. She really just come off as rude and pushy to me. I was told that if I got selected I would be payed 1500.00 for a shoot. It kinda didn't make sense, but I didn't worry too much because of how new I am. After all was said an done it turns out the 1500.00 "pay check" come off of the total I owed them! I still ended up paying them for a bs casting only to OWE money at the end!!! My shots weren't bad, so I can't complain too much about that, but the info was a complete lie!!!! Not to mention, my shots were done outside with no lights or anything. It is really not what I expected! I thought they were trying to help me get started in modeling but they just wanted my $$. Im done with modeling and definitely wouldnt recommend going to dream makers. COMPLETE SCAM

We listen and we care about our clients. All of our services are guaranteed.

AUTHOR: Company - ()

We listen and we care about our clients.  All of our services are guaranteed.

All businesses will get complaints but GOOD businesses will take good care of their customers.  Our company cares and values every client and we strive to go above and beyond to take care of our clients to remain a leader in the entertainment industry. Read below to see our latest changes.

 

Our studio has been in business for almost twenty years and it was time for an update. We weathered the Great Recession and other tough economic times. We embraced this complaint and we recently remodeled the entire studio inside and out. We restored our signs, the outside building, and completely remodeled the studio with glamorous and Hollywood style furnishings. All of the old furniture has been replaced. We designed the studio to be up to date with the 21st century. Please visit the studio and you will see how amazing it looks and you can judge for yourself. Clients now tell us that they want to work here, live here, and tell us that they do not want to leave because the new environment is wonderful.

We have also hired additional talent support for the studio to ensure that everyone that comes to our business will receive a pleasant and respectful experience. It is also true that if you got selected as our Banner Ad Model that you would receive $1500 cash. This is a legitimate job opportunity. The $1500 cash received for this position can be used however the model wants to use the money, such as clothing, restaurants, vacations, etc. Please see our latest Banner Ad Model with his $1500 check in hand.  You can also see our Banner Ad Model on our Facebook Fan Page. The cost to audition for this position is free.  All of our castings are free and no fees are required.  We are an entertainment production company and not a model or talent agency.  All paid jobs booked through our company are 100% free to the talent.  

 

We pride ourselves in our award winning photography and we want you to look amazing in every shot. Photography done outside using natural light is one of the most brilliant lighting sources a photographer can use. Photographers also use artificial lighting, such as electronic flash, strobe lighting, ambient lighting, lamp lighting, and a variety of other lighting resources. Each lighting source is correct and it is up to the photographer to discern the look of each lighting option.

 

We are very interested in your success in the entertainment industry.  Since we have made a considerable investment in remodeling the studio, we will be holding an open house at our business.  We will be inviting all of our contacts that we have developed over the past 18 years. Contacts that will be invited to the open house will be film producers, such as David Yates from Dolphin Tale, television producers from Fox 13, Channel 8, Bright House, and other television stations, prominent casting directors, model and talent agents, celebrities, all of our stars from our studio, and a variety of other creatives in the industry. You are invited to come to our open house and you will have an opportunity to meet successful people in the entertainment industry. Please contact us so we can provide you an exclusive invitation to the open house. We value you as a client and we hope that you find success through all of our contacts and our services.
