In an industry filled with experienced and fresh artists, finding the right talent is not an easy task as many might think. For a newbie employer, finding the right contacts will be a major challenge. How can such an employer with a handful of jobs of artistes get into the bandwagon of running after artists, their managers and their acquaintances even? Do we have an organization that keeps a seamless track of artists of all experience levels? Even if they do, how accessible are they to upcoming producers/employers? Fact remains that there isn’t a very easy and efficient way to find the talents like Actors, Models, Photographers, Dancers or Singers. One way is through an efficient casting agency and the other is through reference and word of mouth. Not everyone can afford to pay a casting agency and not each one of them can assure quality service. What are the other alternatives for finding the right talent?
Erasing the struggler tag. Once and for all.
Every industry anticipates fresh, bright talent who will not only give the established ones a run for their monies but also will their rawness hit us like the aroma of morning coffee. Well, now the question is whether they have it easy to make their presence felt. Be cinema, modelling, music or any related field involving performing arts, freshers face a tough time projecting what they have in store. Very often do we hear terms such as ‘one film wonders’ and about super-talented artists who couldn’t make it big in their respective industries. No, blaming the destiny is passé but the performing arts industry in India, in stark words, is quite inconsiderate to the ones without significant contacts. They end up looking for the right channels to push their talent across but in vain. Most of us must have heard about talent management firms and the likes but do we know the tedious procedure, industry politics and the money that goes into making a good career though such organizations? Many of us sacrifice our passion for performing arts and resort to other professions precisely due to the lack of such a mentor.
