Re: Scream Management?

Fartoomuch - i feel for you! We were in this position they were insistent we gave 6 months. I said not a chance as they had lied, poor comms etc etc and they let us go. I had to force them to say yes, they were insistent they had castings in the pipeline :---) and had done this and that. They hadn't...

Re: Scream Management?

Personally i wouldn't! they now charge £10 a month for administration it seems too. We were with them and my ds was very successful, however they are terrible with communication, payment and told quite a few large lies. We are with a London agency now which so far has been great. Have you looked at ...

Re: Manchester agency

I do wonder could this agency be reported as I was tempted at the time as something is seriously amiss with them. The whole you can’t phone accounts etc what kind of accounts dept don’t take calls. I had a strong feeling they hold onto cash for a long long time (I caught them out) and I even suspect...

Re: Manchester agency

Oh dear! The mighty agency that screams strikes again... we were with them too and my ds did extremely well to be fair. However being lied too ie sending you for castings down south and telling you one time yet directors have another repeatedly is just poor. Lying re payments and holding onto cash. ...

Re: Advice on agency fees

We were with them too a while ago and I left for poor communication reasons lots of lies and withholding payment to my ds. He did really well with them too but I got the point where enough was enough and they didn't even argue when I said I wasn't doing 6 months notice. £10 a month is ridiculous it ...

Re: Northern Agency recommendations??

I think you have to trust your instinct sometimes. I was dithering over an agency the other week and after speaking to them a couple of times then meeting them I feel it's the right move. Purple Giraffe are really personable and Ora are too. I like agencies that are transparent and upfront. Also som...

Re: Northern Agency recommendations??

It's such a minefield isn't it? I personally would avoid Eka sounds like money grabbing again! Your dd goes to scream theatre school doesn't she? I've heard some bad things about scream lately and would avoid them too now as it seems they are charging £10 a month for some rubbish excuse of admin fee...

Re: Advice on agency fees

so after looking through your posts it seems it is scream... i wouldn't be entertaining that at all, in fact i'd be running for the hills! its outrageous and certainly not a thing any decent agency would do! all about the money it seems and leaves a very sour taste in my mouth to see an agency would...

Re: Advice on agency fees

Is that even legal??? £10 a month for what exactly what admin fees are there... is it scream by any chance? Wouldn't touch anyone with a barge pole that said £10 a month that's scandalous!

Re: Newbie Top talent agency?!

We have decided already to go with them - its a no brainer really, i just hope its the right move for him. He has had only a few castings this year so we are happy to wait and see what happens now with SY. He is so excited bless him and the girl at SY was so honest even before we went, it spoke volu...

Well SY have just rang me and want to take DS on she had previously told me to try a mcr agency but said she had to ring me and tell me to forget that as she thought he was exceptional... I am dumbfounded! I was super impressed with her communication and honesty before we even decided to go and see ...

Re: Newbie Top talent agency?!

Haven't scream opened their books? You could always ask Jaime or Jess what they think before submitting her... I'm slightly put off by Mark Jermin just because of the threads I have read on here and the fact I sent them an email earlier in the week asking a few questions and I stressed that communic...

Re: Newbie Top talent agency?!

Not heard of imperium tbh. We've been asked to TTA as well just trying to decide what to do. Mark Jermin also asked as well to see ds. Not sure what to do now! We went to SY yesterday DS had a fab time but wow it's the only workshop I have ever been to where the parents were eyeballing each other! S...
