Actor Management

As an actor, finding the right agency can be tough. You want an agency that not only puts you forward for roles but one that cares about finding the right roles that suit you. 

And trust us, that’s not an easy mix to find. 

But luckily for you, that’s precisely what we offer here at Hunter Talent. 

You see, we like to take a very hands-on approach with our talent and instead of simply putting you forward for work, we prefer to manage your career. 

This means searching out those roles that are best suited to your skills and that will help you fulfill your potential. 

And that’s why the industry’s leading casting directors come to us when they need some fresh talent. 

So what happens when Hunter Talent manages your acting career?

Let’s break it down into three parts. 

Actor Search

An actor search is when a casting director comes to us looking for an actor with a specific look, from a certain demographic, or with particular skills. 

With this in mind, we make sure that your profile reflects exactly who you are. It’s not just a headshot, but a detailed run-down of who you are and what you can do. 

This makes it so much easier for casting directors and clients to find the right talent for their open roles, or in other words, you! 

Now, this may sound like plain common sense, but you’d be surprised at how often we hear of actors who missed out on roles because their agency didn’t make sure that they were searchable. 

That’s certainly not the case at Hunter Talent where we take our actor management responsibilities very seriously.

Actor Casting

Once a client or casting director has found you in our database, they may want to call you in for an audition or casting call. This will give them the opportunity to see you in person and ask you to perform a few lines or actions. 

The casting director will get in touch with us and let us know the details for your first audition. We’ll run through the information and make sure that everything is as it should be before contacting you and confirming that the timing suits. 

Once you have your audition details, you’re usually good to go. 

But we’re not just booking auditions for you, we’re managing your career. That means that we’re here to help and guide you through the process. While we won’t quite hold your hand, we’ll be happy to offer advice and tips based on the client’s brief and audition details. 

Just bear in mind that actor casting may involve one, two, three, or even more auditions depending on the role. 

Actor Bookings

Once a casting director feels that you’re the right fit for the role, it’s time to talk business. 

Hunter Talent will make sure that the client is offering a suitable rate for the role based on current industry standards. We’ll also take a look at any documentation and check that there are no unreasonable requirements for the role. 

When you are finished with the job, we will then invoice the client and forward your payment to your account as soon as the client has paid. If there are any issues with late payments or incorrect amounts, we will be the one to chase it up with the client on your behalf. After all, we’re managing your acting career. 

 

So if you’re looking for an agency that does more than just put you forward for roles, then you’ve come to the right place.

I have been made to feel welcomed and included since first joining Hunter Talent. With regular emails and social media postings keeping me up to date with what’s happening in “Hunter Talent world”, I have a real sense of ‘belonging.’ Almost every week I receive notifications of jobs I have been submitted for, and auditions often come my way. For this reason, I certainly don’t feel overlooked, but quite the opposite. My recent job, a TVC, was a highly professional and fun experience. I’m thrilled to be part of the Hunter team and very grateful for all their hard work behind the scenes. In my experience, it certainly pays off.
