Q). WATCH OUT! READ THE WARNING SIGNS
The talent industry can be intimidating, especially when you are just starting out.
Be very cautious of the following:
- Companies that charge $2000, $3000, or even $7000 for lessons as a condition for work in L.A. or Disney Shows.
- Companies who guarantee work
- Companies who advertise that they cast for international television shows (fine print: they have casting agents in town, who have casted for Disney shows in the past – not that they are casting for Disney shows at the moment.)
