#59 How To Get Representation In A City Where You Don’t Live – Cellina Tells The Tale From Chicago
Play • 42 min

Cellina Munro had been looking for representation for seven years. She trained and spent a lot of money on showcases.  With the intent to move to Los Angeles, she reached out to managers in LA before the move and guess what? Cellina got 10 requests for meetings (in which she chose to take 4) and 4 IN THE ROOM OFFERS. Cellina found the bicoastal manager she deserves - one who is not worried at all about her current Chicago residence and is super supportive about her move to LA. And… You won’t want to miss the part towards the end  where Brian helps coach Cellina on her big move. 

CLOSER LOOK & TAKEAWAYS 

  • You don't need a TV credit to get the representation you are looking for
  • Reps are as human as you are and they want to be picked just as much as you do
  • You need to show up as a whole person in the emails you write to potential representation
  • The benefit of being new in town

With this How They Did It series, actors I’m talking to you: I believe that acting is your calling and your purpose on the planet. You use your voice, and your body, and all that you are, to tell stories that remind US what it is to be human. You have the power to change lives.

 

And, we all know that having great representation makes that impact all that much more possible. 

 

But let’s not get it twisted – looking for an agent or a manager sucks. It’s not straightforward, there are tons of people telling you the best-slash-only ways to do it, and it can leave you in a constant state of anxiety thinking to yourself – is this ever going to happen for me? 

 

And that's why in this series of tell-all interviews with my agent goals students – you’ll hear how they did it.

 

REMINDER: Each of these bonus episodes is very different because each of these actors wants different things from their careers: some want to be on Broadway, others have their sights set on tv and film, and still others are creators and want to land reps that are excited by that.
