*REBUTTAL Individual responds: LOL
So upon google searching the Model Placement Center, I found many posts (a couple of which were on this site) detailing the company's scam. Luckily I never went to the audition, but I did send them a rather wordy email. In response I received the following:
Your young and you know nothing about this industry, You will never be anything in this in this industry with an attitude like yours. This company manages the biggest names in the industry to bad you think you have any pertinent information on MPC, you don't. Your 16 grow up and stop assuming you have all the answers. You up for an Emmy I don't think so!!! I have talent that are. LMAO your Pathetic. So I will put your name on the do not work list good luck in whats left of your career. Head Director Greg Costa
Model Placement Center"
That is literally a direct quote, the guy can't even differentiate between 'your' and 'you're', or 'to and 'too' and he has the audacity to put "Your lack of knowledge and professionalism?" as the email's subject...
It also turns out, the movie they were 'auditioning' me for (Frenemies) has already been cast, and will be produced a year before they mentioned in the email.
It's unfortunate that I'm on the critically acclaimed and world renown Greg Costa's (who?) "do not work list." I'm hoping my real agent won't drop me, and my theatre engagements won't be cancelled, but I just thought everybody should see that this is what the company is/represents. This is who you will pay your thousands of hard earned dollars to. Get a real agent, no you don't need classes, a professional photographer will be well reviewed online upon a simple google search. Save your money, and best of luck to everybody trying to make it in this industry.
