|Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between an agent, manager, and a casting director?
ANSWER: An agent is franchised by one or more of the performer's unions. They are paid a fixed commission only after you have landed the job and been paid for your work. A personal manager provides more comprehensive services than an agent, acting perhaps as a business manager, financial or legal adviser. They may collect a fee greater than agents are permitted to charge because they are not franchised by the performers' unions. A manager may invest considerable time and money in your career, unlike an agent. A casting director is a casting consultant employed by studios, networks, advertising agencies or producers and is paid by these companies.
