Agent Provocateur

If you're like me, you're looking for representation and finding it difficult to obtain. We already know that you won't get an agent by posting on Craigslist, but how does one go about finding their own personal Ari Gold?

Two upcoming events might have some answers:

The first is a panel featuring Agents and Managers happening this Saturday, September 8th at Raleigh Studios. It's sponsored by Script Writers Network and features Marc Manus, Brad Kushner and Barry Katz. Admission is free for members of Script Writers Network or Raleigh Studio employees. For everyone else, it's $15 (no RSVP necessary) or only $10 you're a members of WGA, Women in Film, FIND, FIN, ScreenplayLab or Jeff Gund’s InfoList. (Actually the e-mail from Jeff says that you can get in for FIVE bucks if you mention the InfoList, but the SWN website says ten bucks...)

Date: Saturday, September 8th, 2007
Time: 1:00pm - 3:30

Place: Raleigh Studios, Charlie Chaplin Theater
5300 Melrose Ave. (between Bronson and Van Ness - enter through the Van Ness gate.)
Los Angeles, CA 90038

(Parking is available for $5 on the studio lot. There's also metered street parking.)

Event includes a drawing for Movie Magic Screenwriter Software.

The second event is also a panel discussion--it's sponsored by Breaking into Hollywood and takes place on Thursday, September 27th. But instead of a panel of agents and managers talking about how to get an agent or manager, this panel consists of represented talent discussing how they GOT their agent or manager.

Date: Thursday, September 27th
Time: 5:00 - 7:00 pm
Place: The Writers Store
2040 Westwood Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90025
