This session covers the basics of the agent/performer relationship and some general business information, answering questions such as:
How do you go about looking for an agent? What sort of materials will you be expected to have with you and will you be asked to audition?
One of Canada's most coveted and successful agents, Robyn Friedman has been active in the business for over thirty years. She began her career in 1986 as an agent’s assistant and less than a year later she was invited to head the modeling division.
Robyn’s love of musical theatre and cinema was the catalyst for her move from modeling agent to actor's agent. She joined The Talent Group (later known as Fusion Talent) in 1988 where she remained for 15 years, growing an impressive roster and forging lasting relationships in the entertainment community. In 2003, Robyn joined Shari Quallenberg and Noelle Jenkinson to found Artist Management Inc. Today, Robyn’s eclectic and exclusive roster includes some of this country’s finest actors in theatre, television and feature film.
When not negotiating the hell out of a controct, Robyn the culture vulture can be found in Toronto/New York/LA, promoting her people and checking out the latest play or film.
Robyn is an AMI member one of Canada's most respected and sought after agencies with partners in Vancouver, New York, London and Los Angeles. AMI client's are working in front of the camera, behind the microphone or on the stage throughout the world.
