Canadian Model & Talent Convention — Rip off
This convention is a joke and total rip-off!! The agencies that go to this are not among the top union agencies-if you look them up on the actra website-they will not be listed as agencies that actra recognizes!!! Reputable agencies do not solicit talent, advertise by media or other means and offer their own photographer and acting classes!!! Rip off!! Do not be fooled by this convention-it is a cash grab that you are paying to have these agents fly in and enjoy themselves for 4 days on your $!!! Do yourself a favour, get good head shots done (not by these agencies), take reputable acting lessons. The only way you will get in to the top agencies is by referral only!!! Do not be fooled by the ones that use cattle calls to get people because you will just be 1 in a million that they have on their roster. Big agencies are selective!!! So don"t be fooled with the glam of this convention-rip off!!! They should be shut down!!!
