okay, most of y'all know i "had a job" as an actor due to an audition i had at my agency saturday. well, i went to have my one on one meeting with the scout that came to do the audtitions today and the meeting went okay, until she wanted $6,000. and i had to come up with it by tomorrow night, well, $1,000 of it anyway. but, this was very disheartening. and i know for a fact that she lied to me 3 times! on the drive home, i was texting 3 of y'all, you know who you are, and y'all were being so encouraging, and i just couldn't help but feel like something just wasnt right. so halfway home, i turned around and went back. upon arrival, i walked into the building, and there was noone at the front desk, which isn't uncommon, but we work there so we have free reign of the building. i began to walk to the room where the scout was meeting with everyone. part of the way there i heard a conversation going on between the director of the agency, the scout, the secretary, and 5 agents, including my own. the director was telling the scout, how they knowingly sent many of our models and talents to 5 jobs to which they know for sure were scams. my agent spoke up, "yeah, and the suckers fell for it!" and they all began to laugh! then the scout said, "well, so far they're biting this too!" so i turned the corner and ent off. i blacked out and dont remember details really, BUT! all of the models and talents that were in the building at the time, gathered round. there were 12 of them. when i got done letting them have it, they all followed me out of the building. we all went to starbucks and began to make phone calls to all of our co-models and co-talents. at the current moment, 47 of us have ditched this sorry excuse for an "agency" and we're not even done. we've all reported them tio the better business bureau and many of them are going to the police and filing a report!
so yeah, i am back to square one, finding an agency again. but hey, i could have found out AFTER i paid that money! so in the end, this is a bad thing that ended in a good way, and it could have been worse!
