How to Join The i GROUP
We are a SAG/AFTRA Franchised agency that represents both Union and Non-Union Actors and Models. There are no initial fees associated with being a member with our agency. Our agency only collects a percentage fee (between 10% to 20%) for work that we get you. If you would like to read more about how to determine a reliable agency, click here for the Federal Trade Commission page on Modeling Scams.
Second, we do not require experience or professional photos to apply to our agency. However, if you are new to the industry, we do ask that you express some professional courtesy when you apply. Please have someone help you take a nice photo on a neutral background with good lighting and then please construct a nice letter explaining why you are interested in joining our agency. Selfies, group pictures, and casually scripted letters and emails will not be considered.
Third, Be Patient. Our review process is very thorough, and we will only notify talent if they are accepted. If after 3 months, you have not received an acceptance from us, you are welcome to resubmit. In addition, if you are not accepted to our agency as a Model or Actor, we recommend you submit to be considered as an Extra.
To be considered as talent, please complete the following form.
For talent under 18 years of age, this form should be completed by a parent or guardian.
* Indicates Required Field.
All pictures, if not professionally done, should follow these guidelines:
- Pictures should only feature the talent
- Should be taken in the best possible light (natural, outdoor light is best)
- Should be taken against a neutral background
- No Selfies – have someone else take the photo.
If you are submitting photos, please submit a minimum of two. The First picture should be a close up of you smiling. The Second picture should be a full body picture in the pose and emotion of your choice. You may submit a third photo as well – style, framing, & pose are your choice.
Please note that The i GROUP only uses your submitted information and photos for talent consideration only. We will not forward your photos or information to anyone.
