    Australian Talent Management

    While searching for jobs I came across this and I signed up for an 'extra'. They rang me and explained it all to me, and I need to get some professional photos done which would normally cost around $700 but they could take me to their studio for $200, Or I could get my own photos done and send it to them.

    Now I was thinking it was all good till they said about the $200, But then again they would get 10% of any cash I make so they would want me to have good photos.

    Scam or not?

        WESTERN AUSTRALIA

        SEEKING FEMALE ACTOR IN THEIR 60'S/70'S

        My name is Alex, and I am producing a student short (8 mins) for the WA screen academy and city of Perth.We are looking for someone to play the small role of ‘Ruth’ who is grumpy character around the age of 70.You will be required for one day of shooting between the 1st and 3rd of September, and will be likely an evening shoot, but these details are still to be confirmed.


        We are operating out of ECU Mt. Lawley, and would like to meet and audition anyone interested within the next fortnight here.As this is only a student film, we cannot afford to pay, but the film will be screened in Forest Chase 2010, and we will be entering numerous festivals, including Cannes. We are also a professional crew made up of masters students each hoping to make their mark on the industry upon graduation.If you are interested and would like a copy of the script, please contact:

        Alex: 0438 987 023
        Zoltan: 0421 247 587
        Zoltan
        Zoltan
        Zoltan


        HAHAHA.. awesome :awesome:

        just from that little snippet... i think i would give them a skip.. they sound like a bit of a joke.. and looking at their website, if they can't afford a decent designer, they aren't likely to find you a decent gig..

          Some say he only showers on even days of the week

          Some say he put an R1 motor in a coffee machine

            I thought it was a long shot, They apparently work with underbelly, neighbours, the movie "knowing" and others.

            Not sure Hewie....not sure.....
            Australia Post are pulling the chain and cutting back on overtime so I'm looking for a change, The job isn't great pay without the overtime.

                          Hard to say if it is a scam....

                          But I notice they have no offices in WA? Are you planning on travelling? Or did they say that they still do work in Perth?

                          It's pretty standard to expect to pay for some shots. They need you on their database to be able to show clients your photo. If they said that you could just organise your own photos and not pay the $200 then how could it be a scam? Did you have to pay for anything else?

                          If not, I would give it a go. Not a great deal to lose. Plus if you did go with them, $200 is getting off lightly in my experience.

                              I call scam. With Australia being such a small market, you really need to get a bit of theatre under your belt before you can really have any chance of doing anything remotely resembly tv or film acting (unless of course you are really, really good looking) Not sure about extra work, but that will rarely give you a "break" anyway.
                              Can you help with foster care?
