On Friday night I attended an Agent Workshop at AIA Actors Studio in Burbank, CA. The guest agent was Paula McAfee at Starcraft Talent. The evening started of with a Q&A Session with Paula. She was really open about the Do’s and Don’ts of this Industry and mentioned that she keeps a small client list. After the Q&A’s, each actor was given 5 minutes to meet with Paula and perform a monologue or scene. I used a great little scene from a sitcom called “Coupling” for my audition.
Overall I felt really good about my audition and it was great to have a couple minutes to sit down and chat afterwards. Paula really seemed to like me, though she did mention she prefers to represent clients “across the board”, meaning theatrically and commercially. I have commercial representation that I’m happy with, so I am hoping that Paula will consider me strictly as a theatrical client.
