I have NO experience! How do I begin a career in modeling or acting?
You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore!
The first step to an extraordinary opportunity is to attend one of our bi-monthly OPEN CALL events. To attend, APPLY ONLINE HERE. With the help of the Agency Director and his trusted staff of industry professionals, we will determine your look, your skills and most importantly your potential for a career in the industry. If you are given a Call Back appointment, YOU may be on the path to representation.
What is an Open Call and why should I attend?
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do…explore, dream and most of allDISCOVER for yourself!
An Open Call is your chance to meet with, and be seen by agency staff who will evaluate and determine who you are as a model or actor. These events are fun, inspirational and exciting. Above all they afford you the opportunity to meet others like yourself who are looking for their start. The Agency Director is present at every event to discuss the state of the industry, opportunities within the industry and exciting career paths available to you including representation and professional training.
People tell me I’m good looking, smart and have lots of talent! Why should I pay for professional training?
Education and professional training costs money…but so does ignorance!
Raw talent is a wonderful thing, but it will only get you so far. Training is the foundation of any professional career. When industry professionals see that a talent has training on their resume, it speaks volumes about their commitment to their craft, and gives them an immediate edge over their competition as most agencies prefer to work with professional talent. Here at WMA we will help to identify your strengths, and offer you opportunities to sharpen your skills in the areas we deem necessary. From terminology to professional etiquette, together we will determine your preparedness to enter the industry and when you may be ready to begin professional auditions.
