Resolved Question: Quite softball start modeling and acting?
Well I would really love to start acting and modeling like more than anything but I don't really know where to start. And I know I probably don't have to quite softball to start acting and modeling but I kind of want to because it takes up my weekends so I can't see all of my friends. And I'm kind of done with it. So my question is really how do I tell my parents that I want to start modeling and acting and stop softball? And please don't just say they are your parents they will understand I just want to know what to say? Also where do I start? What steps should I take to become a model? And are there any acting classes near Portland oregon? Any information would really help. I'm also a 13 year old girl about 5'4" and I am really outgoing except when it comes to my parents I get a little shy I don't know why I just do?... But please help thanks!
Resolved Question: Should I get my money back from a modelling/acting agency?
In January 2012, I signed up with this agency in my hometown. I paid over $7,500 altogether which included acting workshops, a modelling/acting course, 2 photoshoots, and distribution of my photos on their web site. To Make a long story short after I had finished the modelling/female enhancement course which they make you take before they find you any jobs because it is mandatory you are expected to sign up for something called CMTC a supposed modelling/acting convention that takes place near Toronto every year in May. This convention costs over $2000 and is a 4 day convention where supposed agents fly in every year from different countries in the world to "scout different models and talent." Apparently hundreds of people turn up at this convention and only a handful of people are chosen to get callbacks. To make a long story short before I attended this convention it was required of me to sign a contract stating that i be with them for three years. Anyway, because i had already been rejected twice on two different fashion auditions that I attended I was quite hesitant to sign this contract. So about a month ago I consulted with a lawyer who told me that they were a scam and that even though I signed a form stating that I wouldn't get a refund on this convention that I still had a good chance to get my money back through small claims court. Today I decided to step into their office to pick up my comp cards that I had previously ordered. They told me while I was picking them up that I was kicked out of their agency's roster for good because I had posted an unacceptable remark on their youtube channel. The worst thing I said in that remark was that I didn't become a supermodel. If any of you have any advice about small claims or have experienced this before. Please answer to your best extent as to how I should go about defending myself on the youtube comment. Also, believe ir or not this agency has represented a top supermodel for the past 15 years, and this agency has also been around since 1990, so I'm surprised that they haven't gone out of business for 22 years. I am only 19, so this will be my first time going to court, my mom is also assisting me with this whole thing. I am from the province of Ontario so I'm not sure how the court would respond to my case.
Resolved Question: Does the Barbizon agency guarantee career help and acting/modeling success?
I was called by the Barbizon Acting and Modeling Agency today, and i heard from one side that it was a scam, and from someone else that it isn't at all a scam, and that people can get opportunities to across and model if an agent likes you. Has anyone ever been to barbizon? Do you know if agents pick people from there? Are good acting and modeling opportunities guaranteed or atleast common for people that have joined in Barbizon? Please answer! Thanks :))
