Welcome to our website and thank you very much for considering using All Around Talent (and divisions of) for your next talent/staffing and payroll needs. We have been in business for over 15 years in the talent booking and contracting industry. We only present talent to clients that are willing to work within your budget, fitting your requirements, and available. There is nothing like doing a search for talent only to find that everybody you want is not available or not interested, which is just one reason we are different. Each job is given personal attention. We will always try to find available local talent first which saves you travel and lodging expenses. (Depending on the request and the location, travel expenses may need to be paid). We will handle the stress of finding talent saving you time and energy; therefore making your company more successful. Additionally we do all the payroll for you, that's HUGE. Don't forget we operate throughout the entire US.
CLIENTS: Multiple webcasting, Youtube videos, various internet videos, Procter & Gamble/Coty, KMS/GOLDWELL, L'Oreal, Kenra, Disney, Sony Studios, Lucero Olive Oil, Mint Media Group, QVC, Carpe Diem Events, Chinese Laundry, and many many more.
WHAT ARE YOUR FEES? Its free to request talent. No fees are owed if you do not select talent. Talent's info will not be released via a request. All fees for talent are negotiable and are determined PRIOR to the casting. There are minimums we work with as a business. Invoices under $1000.00 total have a non-refundable $100.00 fee for all new clients in addition to industry standard fees. If we do not feel a deal is fair to talent, we will let know.
INTERNET & SOCIAL MEDIA - Rates will vary depending on usage, but all will be agreed upon prior to the start of any casting.
FOR EVENTS - The rates depend on what is being asked of the talent to do and time required .
FOR INTERNET, PRINT, and MEDIA USAGE - The rates depend on the usage which means where its being used and how long its being used for. This is known in the industry as PAY FOR PLAY. In other words the more you use or plan to use somebodies image the more you pay. We always ask our clients how they would feel for their face being used to help them comprehend the basic concept which is an industry standard. ALL clients must also consider that if any talent's image is being used in one spot, it will potentially block them from future jobs in the same industry. When you block potential employment from similar clients for any talent due to their images being used, it justifiably makes the rate go up.
HOW IT WORKS
1. GENERAL AGREEMENT FOR FIRST TIME CLIENTS
First time clients will need to CLICK HERE to fill out a general agreement (GA) to protect all parties involved that will cover us for the current job and all future jobs. We can email you a direct link of our terms & conditions at anytime for easier reading. First time clients are also encouraged to give us a call at 818.470.1911 to touch base and answer any questions. You may review our TERMS & CONDITIONS here which is also found on the general agreement (GA) link above.
2. HOW DO WE CONTACT YOU?
You may either call, email, text, or fax us (if you still have one) with your talent request to firstname.lastname@example.org. FAX 818.488.5179 PHONE: 818.470.1911. You may call us the old fashion way which is preferred via a phone call, especially for new clients. Communication and conversation for the first booking is very helpful. A five minute conversation of some back and forth can save us about 40 emails. Save time, save money.
3. CASTING TYPE
Historically, our most successful castings are LIVE CASTINGS, but DIGITAL castings are recommended during the Coronavirus Pandemic. For live castings we select talent for you to attend the castings based on your talent breakdown. Live castings are always encouraged and are the majority of our castings. If models are selected from photos you will be supplied with options. This is called a DIGITAL casting. Booking models digitally is not encouraged if you have the option to have a casting. Although it is very rare, if you are not satisfied with a model whom is booked digitally upon job arrival, fees will still be applied for the first day of work. We will do our best to assist you in making sure you get what you are looking for. This is personalized service.
Please determine which type of casting you are going to have. Please do not go back and forth as to which type of casting you are going to have as this will cost all parties involved to waste a lot of time.
LIVE CASTINGS - Clients provide and audition time & location. We determine whom attends and send you a list of names of confirmed models prior to the casting. Each confirmed model is fully aware of the rate, requirements, dates, etc. Each confirmed model registers for free to attend your casting specifically. We do all this at no cost to you until you decide to book the talent. That's right, no casting fees or obligation to book talent. You simply send us what you need and we take care of the rest.
DIGITAL CASTINGS or SMMA CASTINGS - We will supply you with specific talent photos, stats, reels (for product demonstrations, voice overs, reporters/hosts, actors, bands) or a brief personal summary of each talent. We only present you with available and willing talent for your specific need. Unlike other companies, we do not just send over a package of useless talent. We send over information tailored to your needs.
Remember we can find talent nationwide. We personally review every single talent. Again, this is not a random database of models.
4. FINAL SELECTIONS
LIVE CASTINGS - You select the models and inform us as to whom is selected.
DIGITAL CASTINGS - We send models a contract and release their info once they confirm the contract.
5. PAYMENT & INVOICING
The day after the job is complete All Around Talent will send you an invoice which is due 30 days after the invoice is received. We prefer payment much sooner in order to pay talent sooner. (Please keep in mind once we get the check it sill will be another 5-7 days for the talent to receive the check from us in the mail. Please make your strongest effort to pay as swiftly as possible).
OTHER INFO TO KNOW
All new clients must fill out a general job agreement. This does not mean you have to use our models.
Our minimum rate to take on a project must average $150 per 8 hour day to the model.
All clients must be a corporation. We do not work with individuals.
We ONLY take on jobs that pay monetary compensation. We do not do exchanges.
No money is owed if talent are not selected.
We reserve the right to refuse service at any time if no talent have been booked.
We will NOT send you our talent's social media files so there is no need to request them. Its is looked at as an attempt to cheat our business and provide free marketing material based off our hard work,so needless to say this does not bode well with our business. Furthermore there is no need, we will supply you with all the info needed to book talent.
We do not hire talent for individuals. We only hire talent for established companies
