This is a company does not lie about one thing and that IS that they are Very good at what they do, and that one thing is scam you out of your money And destroy your credit. And if you go in as a couple for your child they get BOTH OF YOU to list your SS# to he able to attack you the minute you dispute, cancel, or just change your mind about them and their chop shop services. 

OKay, here we go..

They advertise a cattle casting call for children, adults, basically anyone breathing with a wallet and a social security #.

they cram you into a back room that has no business holding people and call you in quick photo shoot and a wanna be audition. They tell you that you have that special something and will call you IF your chosen for a call back. Secret is EVERYONE from thay day is called baAs and told their chosen. Oldest trick in the book. The more Fishin poles you have in the water the more chances you have to catch a wallet... Ugh fish.

Then they tell yoube been chosen for a callback and you need to come in to speak about the opportunity and bring several sets of clothing for a photo shoot they have planned for you. Great right??? Wrong, when you get there the owner of this chop shop wanna be agent house drag you across the street to take picture in the woods. And she'll actually have the nerve to have you hold the photo equipment and help shade the shots. When your through she'll tell you she not an agent but a acting guro to help guide you through the process and slam picture binders of people in your face of all the success stories she's responsible for.

Then be prepared becausw she shows you a disc of all the pictures taken that day and has you choose some for his/her folio. Which your now told has a fee of $400.00 but you only have to pay 90.00 if you commit to contract that includes a webinar that you have to listen to for 2 + hours every week and basically become an employee. oh yea this costs $3000.00. But it gets way better, once you tell this tyrant your not interested or can't afford it she amazingly comes up with the second offer for $1000 less if you sign that day. BUT WAIT, DONT ANSWER YET.

When you decline this offer it cuts in half again. And then she's willing to break it ipay what ever payments your willing to pay. At this point if you don't just grab your children and push past out the door she will not let you leave with some kind of financial commitment. And the very best part of this is when you ask her if she gets you auditons she tell you she just a spiritual advisor, a visionary bullshit. so then she uses her last trick in her hat and tells you your child or you will be in a commercial as part of your pick pocket aggrement. thame ever sees any airtime. Its her with her own video camera. JOKE!!

So after finally shamefully be broken down by this scam artist we sign for the minimum value meal option of $895.00 which she just claps her hands and says your going to be a star. So we payed for the photo shoot day (90.00) and also a first 250.00 payment  as part of the 895.00 contract and leave this dilapitetd building. after a week a one 2 hr webinar babble that  had absolutely nothing to do with anything WE were in the market for we decided to part ways with this terrible decision. I mean $340.00 for 6 pics that we could have done ourselves and actually helped this so called professional take was enough.

we lived 3 hrs away anyway and all we wanted was an agent to help guide us to cast calls. THATS ALL... instead we fell into the preying jaws of dream makers studiios when we asked to cancel for 2 great resons they said we owed the happy/value meal in full of 895.00 and when they disputed this i had to cancel my credit card because oh yea, they attach your credit card /bank account for payment. Then after this nonsense add it to my credit Report as an unpaid debt. C'mon $340.00 for a few pics that they said was 90.00 sand we paid it. all we wanted was someone to help our littl girl maybe do a commercial or print ad.

Let me re-phrase all our 5yr old little girl wanted was to do a commercial or print add. And we had to meet people like this. Why?? Wasn't our $340 enough? They needed to try to destroy out credit? I say our because they insisted my wire also put her info of the application as well even though it was my bank acct. now we both have this on our credit. We work hard for our money and this just wasnt the services we were looking for. Why did we need to keep paying for the wrong thing?? WE WILL NEVER PAY THIS FALSE BILL...EVER. Roni Puckett,  karma is a real thing and you will have to deal wthis the boomerang of your actions. Again, WE WILL NEVER EVER PAY YOU THIS MONEY. In fact we are using it to expose you instead. Karma. Fade to black....

#2 REBUTTAL Owner of company

We inspire people to pursue their dreams and to achieve success.

AUTHOR: Company - ()

We guarantee all of our products and services. We care about our clients and we are only interested in working with people who desire success in the entertainment industry. We have made a considerable investment remodeling and restructuring the studio and we invite you and your daughter to come to an open house event to showcase our beautiful facility and you will have the opportunity to meet many valuable contacts that we have developed over the past 18 years. This is an opportunity of a lifetime for you and your daughter to get discovered in the industry. Contacts that will be invited will be film producers, such as David Yates from Dolphin Tale, television producers, model and talent agents, celebrities, prominent casting directors, successful models and actors from our studio, and a variety of other creatives. Please read below for more information.

Our mission statement at our company is to enrich and to enhance people’s lives. Our company was founded  in 1995 and we uphold the highest ethics in the entertainment industry and in the marketplace. We are very sorry to hear that you feel that you were scammed out of your money.  All of our products are guaranteed and if for some reason one of our products or services has failed you, our company will make good on the product as promised. Please read all of your warranty contracts and contact us so we can correct the problem for you. The only time that we request a consumer’s social security number is when a consumer has asked and agreed to a line of credit with our company or if someone becomes an employee of the company. We obtained you and your wife’s social security numbers because you purchased a modeling portfolio or portraits and needed some assistance with your investment.

Our company is seeking a Banner Ad Model and we advertise for all ages to audition, unfortunately not everyone is invited.  Additionally, only specific people from the audition are called back.  We are only interested in working with models and actors who are looking for success in the entertainment industry and meet certain requirements. This is a high paying position and many people would like the opportunity to be our Banner Ad Model. You can see our latest Banner Ad Model on our Facebook Fan Page. This is a legitimate paid modeling job opportunity.

Our studio is located across the street from a beautiful park that has many photographic backgrounds to choose from including a lovely gazebo, lakeside trees, benches, and other artistic natural settings. This park is maintained by the city and has been a wonderful asset for our models to pose and to produce award winning artwork. It is true that on occasion we will ask someone for assistance to hold photographic equipment when we are working outside to produce outstanding artwork of the model. This is a common practice among photographers that take photographs in an outside setting. This is not necessary when we take photographs inside our studio.

We are an award winning entertainment production company. We are not a middleman also known as a model and talent agent or an employment agency. All of our castings are free and we do not take any percentage of a talent’s salary. Our company is a collaboration of artists, educators, mentors, leaders, producers, and directors in the entertainment industry. We have many successful graduates from our studio that are seen on television commercials, magazines, movies, billboards, catalogs, books, music videos, CD covers, advertisements, and a variety of other artistic venues. We are a valuable contact for anyone who is interested in succeeding in the entertainment industry.

Our company does produce television commercials that are produced by award winning television producers that have worked at Fox 13, CBS, ABC, WTOG, NBC, Bright House, and several other TV stations. These commercials require state of the art equipment in order to be produced and aired on TV.  Our commercials can be seen on a variety of channels, including Fox 13, MTV, ABC, and Nickelodeon. We are still very interested in having your daughter be one of our stars in our TV commercial.

Our company offers a variety of services and products for models, actors, small businesses, artists, entertainers, families, and individuals. All of our products and services are optional and ultimately the consumer decides what they would like to purchase to meet their needs.  All of our products and services are guaranteed. Please contact us if you need assistance with your purchase and also to get the dates for the television commercial and the open house event. We are interested in your daughter succeeding in the industry. Your success is our success. We look forward to hearing from you.
