I seem to have graduated into the important client category at my agency.
I have been with my commercial agent for about a year, and they are wonderful. I think I've gushed to you before about how much I love them. Granted, they have only gotten me a few auditions and I didn't book any of them, but the commercial drought I'm in seems to be more of an industry trend away from my type than any lack of effort from my agents. They have always known who I was when I called or emailed, they never gave me that holier-than-thou attitude that
many nearly all douchey starter agents give their prospective and lower level clients. And though they're exclusively a commercial house, they have always been supportive of my theatrical pursuits and submitted me on every project I asked them to. They even negotiated my recent TV contract for me. In the last year, I've never felt like anything but a respected client.
Now my agents want to wine and dine me. Wow. Just wow.
