Acting and Modelling Information Service

Based in Toronto, the Acting and Modelling Information Service (AMIS) is a volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to informing and educating those members of the general public who are interested in training and careers in the fashion and entertainment industries.  Such information will enable those interested in acting and modelling to avoid exploitative situations and, where feasible, to find legitimate entry paths into the careers of their choice.

AMIS has operated a telephone information service since November 1995 and is staffed by experienced professionals from the entertainment and fashion industries.  AMIS volunteers share their experience, provide answers to questions about the industry, and give newcomers to the business the tools to make informed choices.
