Whilе there are a good 10-20 big companies who won’t speak to you when you are first starting out, there are dozens upon dozens of smaller boutique acting аgеnсiеѕ that will take meetings with you. How? You must consistently get your “package” in front of their faces. You must be relentless in your quest to nail down the right time of representation.
