What is a Agent?

Finding work in the creative field can be extraordinarily difficult. In fact, only a small percentage of artists actually find any steady work in their field. Even less become well known artists. In many cases, finding jobs in the entertainment involves both talent and luck.

Having a good talent agent, however, can mean the difference between finding work in a creative field and being left out in the cold. Talent agents discover artists with talent, help them find paying work, and help them negotiate their contracts. All different types of creative artists might benefit from working with a talent agent, including actors, singers, instrumentalists, DJs, Producers and more.

Talent agents are the professionals that most employers go to when they are looking to fill specific creative types. In fact, some employers, like major movie studios, won’t hire a creative type unless he is represented by a talent agent or agency.

What Does a Agent Do?

Working as a talent agent often requires long hours and many responsibilities. Many talent agents choose to represent only one type of artists, such as actors or Producers.

In general, a talent agent acts as a middleman between talented creative types and those that are looking to hire them. While many other businesses look for ways to “cut out the middleman”, they really are necessary in many creative fields, particularly because talent agents have a large circle of network contacts.

Our talent agents start building their network before they even start their careers, and they keep adding contacts throughout their careers. They keep a list of these contacts handy for whenever their clients are searching for work.

Talent agents might “discover” talent in a variety of places. Many creative types seek out talent agents on their own and may be required to audition, or otherwise prove their talents. For instance, authors might send a completed manuscript to an agent, while musicians may send a demo CD. Talent agents can then screen these individuals based on their talents, working with the most promising ones. A talent agent might also go in search of new talent as well. For example, he might go to theater productions in search of actors, or he might attend small concerts in search of talented musicians.

A talent agent will then go through the process of trying to find each of his clients jobs. In order to do this, he may send audition tapes or other examples of his clients’ work to production studios, record labels, publishing houses, or galleries. He will also apply to jobs on behalf of his clients.

After his clients are hired, a talent agent’s job doesn’t end there. He must then help each of his clients work out the terms of their contracts. A contract may include basic information such as how long the job is and the pay rate, along with other information like what is expected of the artist as well as the hiring entity. A talent agent will also help work out any disputes between the creative talent and the employers, should they arise.
