I have been the busniess of entertainments for over 15 years and I've experienced the ups and downs, highs and lows. I have been lucky enough to be able to work with some amazing people, but I also had to learn some things on my own too. As I moved in to producing, doing my own concerts and shows, I also started doing events and business consulting. So I started putting together a new department within my company.
So many people want to be in the entertainment industry and it can be a really hard business to get into, plus it can be filled with people who sometimes try and take advantage of artists. People always look for management and representation, but I find that it's a case of sitting by the phone and waiting for it to ring. I ended up getting 80% of my auditions and jobs myself. The agent tends to leave the acts to it.
So here's my plan. I look after some acts already and speak and meet with them on a regular basis. What I do differently from others is, I work closely with the artists, I not only find them auditions and jobs, but I help them prepare for it all too. I work with them on every detail and I make sure everything is perfect. I also do the marketing and promotions and I'm more than willing to go above and beyond to develop their careers. With the help of others, I plan to build a company that offers the best of everything, not only in entertainments, but future plans hopefully are going to include Teaching, Confidence Building, Voice / Vocal Training, and Career Development. I am happy to working with Actors, Singers, Dancers, Models, Musicians or of any age or gender and support them in any area they are intersted in.
Why am I doing this? Because I care enough and believe in the future of the business and great talent. As youngsters are leaving school, college and uni to make there way in the world and and even people who have been working for many years. It's about caring, guiding and offering the very best. Why should I get paid to sit on the phone when there is so much I can offer and teach, what you'll find about me is that I'm always 100% honest and I want to share my experences with others to pass on what I have learned. I would also like to have a space such as a studio to invite people who want to learn, help get kids of the streets and find there ways in life. I'm busy working on even more ideas and future plans as well.
The bid for funding to help with the set up, as well as Marketing tools, and staff to get this project off the ground and move forward so we can help the people who want to make a real go of this business. I'm starting small with just enough to help me grow this and put plans into action. I'm very grateful to everyone who is willing to help make mine, and more importanly others dreams come true. Thank you!
