Movie Works Now Casting Scam Phoenix Arizona
I am so ashamed that I paid my money for this crap. Barbara was my talent coordinator as well (whatever the hell that means). She told me that as an African American female I was in high demand. She also told me about the same union stories and not to join SAG immediately. Before I knew it, I had paid $300 and didn't know what I was getting for my money. I called back to ask Barbara additional questions and she said the money was for my photo shoot. Since when do you have a photo shoot without a variety of clothing items and propts? I didn't even get my negatives, so what the hell did I really pay for. The photographer said she had only been taking professional pictures for 3 years! All the signs were there, but it was too late to get my money back.
When I went to view my photos, Barbara pulls out this pricing sheet and tells me that I get one 8 x 10 in my $300 and the rest I had to pay for. The package she selected was $420, an allegedly included 10 prints. She also said I would be a good candidate for Soap Operas and weekly sitcoms! Now how is that possible if I live in Phoenix. I can't get my money back, but I would encourage everyone to pursue their acting dreams the real way. Find a reputable acting coach, take classes, and seek out local talent agencies. I found some great information on joeedelman.com that I plan to pursue in a few weeks--once I can save up the money I lost with Movie Now Networks Casting. Lesson learned the hardway.
