DESCRIPTION OF THE BUSINESS
Starpower Management takes 20% of money clients earn through modeling, 15% for acting, and 20% for bands and recording artists signing bonuses. These percentages are standard for management per the T.M.A., and not to be confused with agent’s rates which are typically 10 to 15 percent. Agents typically have higher volumes of clients, thus the lower rate. Agents can get S.A.G. franchised, managers do not. Additionally, we devote a percentage of our time and energy to discovering new talent and developing “new faces.” New clients are expected to get great headshots and zed cards so they can be promoted and land work. If some one has great pictures, or is signed with a top agency, we use the pictures they have. Unlike most agencies, or management companies, we have worked with a number of clients who could not afford pictures immediately and done whatever we could to help them find work without decent photos. We do not sign people who do not meet strict physical criteria, or people who are not able to be reliable and professional.
