Michael Ottesen contacted me on Facebook directly and said I'd need cash to start in the Via Agency. Any agencies asking for money is a scam! I have a photo of him saying so!

Via Entertainment is a legit company

AUTHOR: Ryan F. - (USA)

Best agency in Colorado and has no affiliation with the Phoenix, AZ location. Do your research and contact their clients. I did and it paid off triple-fold on my investment. I walked in about October of 2014 from a classified ad I seen on Craigslist. Knowing it was Craigslist I was a little hesitant and only assumed the worst. I did not have to pay the $500 dollars because I walked in with a good quality headshot and only had to pay the enrollment fee. The enrollment fee paid for a background check (being they work with kids and are bonded they do not want to risk their licenses from the rift-raft that come in.) However, after being with them for six months now and receiving about 12 offers for jobs that were available (only taking four because I own my own business)

I signed my daughter up as well. She is doing her first paid gig this week (Apr 2014) for a Toyota commercial. I also paid for the photography this time for her and it was well worth it. The photographer did an amazing a job and gave us tons of usable photos. I am extremely please with the overall professionalism of Via Entertainment and would recommend them to all my friends and family and have. I would encourage anyone to go to Denver or some of these hotel gigs and see what crazy prices they charge and don't have one single verifiable job to show. I have my demo reels proof to show anyone of my work, the checks from the work have cleared the bank. Hope this helps any "newbies" wanting to get into the biz.
