Define: A Manager
Oh my how this has changed since the 60s.
Welcome to 21st Century Hollywood – A Webinar Series presented by Kevin E. West. There likely isn’t a more important definition “in 21st Century Hollywood” to make…than this one. While there are still today, valid and legit managers, who truly function like the old school managers in the 50s n’ 60s it is for the most part…gone. Now when we say gone, that doesn’t make it a bad thing, but the concept of a “Manager” from the tiny unknown un-credited actor to a top star has altered a GREAT deal over the last 50 years. It won’t change much from here but it is a key factor in your career if nothing more than clearing up confusion as to why you would or would not “choose” to take on a manager and give up more of your money when you work. Humans are “all alike” while being very unique simultaneously and this area of an actor’s career is much like that. You need to really look at attributes and factors to make an intelligent decision.
