Mode Elle SCAM!!SCAM!!SCAM!! Belleville, Ontario
Yes I agree-this agency holds the biggest rip-off Talent Convention called CMTC whereby they have agents fly in from all over to attend-they obviously get a free 4 day vacation for attending and have no interest in the models/talent. They state that you have been "chosen" to attend(anyone can attend) and that you have to have your payment in by March.1st(rush rush rush-so no one can change their mind)-Oh, and if you do wake up and realize that it is a big money-grab-good luck getting a refund-NOT A CHANCE!!! Funny how this agency wins "Grand Overall Agency Award" at their own convention!!!Hmmmmmm. Now for the real truth about reputable agencies: REAL agencies DO NOT: solicit business, have their own acting/modelling classes, have their own photographer that you MUST get your photos done through them and charge fees to join! Hmmmmmmm. Sure, these low level agencies may get you a few print jobs and commercial work but it will only be NON-UNION and BACKGROUND gigs. Only reputable UNION/ACTRA agencies will have the higher jobs and these agencies will ONLY accept you either by referral in the industry or ONLY AFTER you have attended reputable acting classes and/or acting coaching sessions with HIGHLY REPUTABLE acting schools/coaches that the top agencies utilize on a regular basis!!!! To view top agencies-look under the ACTRA website!!! PLUS-always ask if they represent anyone that you may recognize in the business that is working and a professional actor/model!!! Hmmmmmm. Trust me-this business is not that easy-you MUST prove yourself and any agency that tells you differently is a SCAM!!!
