REM Studios is owned and opperated by Robert owczarek A.K.A. Robert Latte "just so you know that's not even his real last name just a drink from starbucks!!!" After attending collage, he started working for Barbizon School of Modeling but after he was asked to terminate his employment there he tried to work for John Robert Powers but was denied a position!! so after being shut out of the modeling schools he than started working for a modeling agency in Chicago called Encore Talent Agency but not long after working there he stole leads and documents so that he could open up his own Agency called Latte Model Talent and let me tell you that was a joke of a agency but yet again he failed at doing a good job so at a attempt to keep the agency he took on one of the worst Booker's in the city Ms. Sandra Perez she has no real knowledge of the industry other then being the assistant to a Booker from the Encore Agency after he brot her on board he then started going to modeling school to help scam the students out of more money saying he was a big shot agent out of Chicago and had all this work for them but that was not true!!!!! then he said this is a easy way to take money form people let me do more by sailing the IMTA but to do that he would now need to open REM STUDIOS for 4 years now "Mr. Latte" has scammed hundreds out of the money saying he has a office in Dallas, NYC, LA, but he don't he has a logo to trick your eye into thinking that he dos there is in fact a office in Indianapolis however he has failed to pay the rent in 8 months and the building has locked him out!!!!! he holds the company by saying that he did TV work in Poland but he never did look him up you wont find anything he holds himself to the clime of talent that he did not get work... The talents agent or manager did!!! so be wear of ROBERT OWCZAREK "LATTE" if your family has the money he will take you know matter how ugly or untalented you are so long as you have a deposit of 985 and the ability to make payments up to 10 thousand dollars!!!!!!!

LOOK up the BBB you wont find REM OR LATTE Agency there so that you wont know the lies!!!!!

LOOK up the state board of education you will not see the studio as a licensed studio to teach!!!!!

LOOK at the office it has broken mirrors, no runway to practice the walk, no make-up to learn how to apply a models look.....

LOOK at how filth the office is at all times how UN-organized it is!!!!

the list gos on and on do you want your child working with REM Studios?? we are not talking abut the difference in a burger. be it if you like Mc. or BK....But we are talking about where to start your modeling career..

#1 Consumer Comment

Scammed by REM Studios

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (U.S.A.)

I paid $2200 for my daughter to be put in A Modelsourcebook. This was through REM Studios in Chicago, Illinois. The numbers that were given to me are either out of order or I don't get an answer or response. My daughter did have the pictures taken but there has never been a book like this. She was supposed to have a headshot and 6 other pictures put into this book along with 60 models. She was supposed to be in two issues. Then REM Studios was supposed to send the book to over 800 agencies throughout the US. Then they were supposed to send the book to 20 agencies of our choice on top of that. We were very excited about this. It takes me up to 5 mo. of working at my job in order to make $2200. I would like help of getting this money back. Plus, gas money to go three hrs. for the interview, pictures, etc. If there is no way of getting this money back, I just want to warn others to completely stay away from REM Studios. They will promise you the world and you won't get anything in return except a lot of worries and an empty bank account. If REM Studios calls you for any reason at all, run the other way as fast as you can. I hope this will help others. All the other reports that you may have read about Robert ( Latte ) are true. I have dealt with Robert in the past. We were sent to a workshop in NYC where my daughter met with agents. I know he is also involved with IMTA and will try everything to get you to do this too. BEWARE- he is sharp and has employees that can talk you into anything. Thanks, Annonymous in Illinois

RESPONSE TO FORMER EMPLOYEE: YOU HAVE A GOOD HEART BUT YOU WERE MISINFORMED

AUTHOR: Spider - (U.S.A.)

To the former employee I would like to say that you are correct in your statements. However it cannot apply to REM. I am sorry to be the be the one to say it but..... REM has never registered with the Board of Education. Which means
that if you were an "instructor"..You were not Licenced to teach the kids and adults... It is against the law to charge money for services rendered through REM. You are more than welcome to check with the Board of Education on this fact. I did. Everyone has its haterz..but REM scammed alot of money out of alot of people and now they and possibly the staff have to face the Attorney General and Private attorneys. My advice to you is..Before you work for a "Small Business" Check and see if they are legit! Cuz REM hasnt been since the beginning!!

#3 UPDATE EX-employee responds

REM STUDIOS IS A GOOD PLACE!!

AUTHOR: Supermodel - (U.S.A.)

I WORKED AT REM STUDIOS FOR ABOUT 6 MONTHS AND THE PEOPLE ARE VERY COOL, AND THE ENVIRONMENT IS VERY LAID BACK. WHENEVER SOMEONE COMES OUT WITH A GREAT IDEA OR BUSINESS THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A PERSON THAT WANTS TO BRING THEM DOWN, IT'S AN AGE OLD TALE. WHILE WORKING THERE THE ONLY TIME I SEEN SOMEONE UPSET WAS WHEN THEY WERE TRYING TO LIVE THERE CHILD'S LIFE AS A MODEL. ROBERT AND HIS TEAM WERE ALWAYS GOOD TO ME AND THE PEOPLE AROUND HIM. SO STOP HATING HATERZ AND FIGURE OUT HOW YOU CAN IMPROVE YOUR LIFE INSTEAD OF TRYING TO RUIN OTHERS.

#4 UPDATE Employee

REM STUDIOS ROCKS!!!

AUTHOR: Star3 - (U.S.A.)

OK. We all know that this is a very disgruntled employee (Mr. Johnalee romans). The incorrect 1st grade spelling saids it all!!! REM STUDIOS is a very reputable company, who has launched the careers of many up in coming Chicago talents. He had no problem being part of REM STUDIOS INTERNATIONAL FOR 3 YEARS. UNTIL HE WAS FIRED LAST MONTH FOR EMBEZZLING 7 THOUSAND DOLLARS FROM THE COMPANY!!!!!! THAT WE KNOW OF SO FAR!!!!! WE HAVE A FILED POLICE REPORT TO PROVE THIS!!! SO WHO IS SCAMMING WHO NOW!!!! Who was the one begging Robert not to tell anyone of your DISGRESSIONS!!! And here you are putting him on blast!!! TALK ABOUT NO CLASS!!! Just remember we have a signed statement confessing your bad deeds. DON'T WRITE A CHECK YOUR ASS CAN'T CASH!!!!!!!
