Q: Do I need a talent manager if I already have an agent?
A: It's important to understand the difference between a talent manager and talent agent. Talent managers, like talent agents, are paid a percentage of your income. We only make money when you do. Talent agents focus on helping you get auditions or book contracts with galleries, theaters, or production studio. Agents are great for helping you find the next opportunity to keep you working. Talent managers have your long longer-term golsl in mind, guiding you into projects that will mostly help you reach your career objectives. A talent manager may advise you against signing certain contracts while encouraging you to consider others that better serve your long-term goals. A talent manager will also help you prepare for auditions, may introduce you to influential peopleiwithin the industry , and will help arrange for showing or performances. When possible, a talent manager is present at your showing, performances, and other events and gives feedback on artwork or performances. As talent manager we are well-connected in the industry, we get to know agents and the work they do to better guide you int choosing the best one.
