Questions

  1. How involved are you personally or does your agency assist parents in terms of setting up a Coogan account based on the Coogan law?
  2. At what age, today, would you want your clients to have a professional Demo Reel available online?
  3. Describe, for the world, what the “Check Authorization” process is and why parents should expect it, and expect it to be?
  4. Is there a reason why your agency chooses to represent within a certain age range of child performer and if so, what is it and why?
  5. How can a parent, anywhere in the U.S., actually filter out here or in their own city, and KNOW why an agent is legitimate?
  6. If you could tell every parent in the world, whose offspring wants to be a professional performer, the 3 things NOT TO DO as a parent…what are they?
  7. The question every parent on the planet wants to know is what is the best way for a parent to get their child represented by your agency and if it is different what is the most common way you find clients?
  8. Have you found in your years of experience that you drop child clients more often because of them or because of their parentís attitude/behavior?
  9. Dabble in the difficult subjective conversation of how/why/when being a SAG member at what age really matters or is a true obstacle to being represented, as well as how that varies between Commercial and Theatrical representation?
  10. Honestly Angela does the agency really care about how far or difficult the drive “from home” is to get their kids to auditions…or isn’t just we don’t want to know…just get there?
