HOLLYWOOD ACTOR AGENTS (Hit the Ground Running: 18 Agents)
by Dov S-S Simens on August 18, 2015
LA TALENT AGENTS & SAG-AFTRA
Hit the ground running: If you are coming to LA and want to be a professional actor then hit-the-ground-running.
Have your headshot ready (it will change), get a list of acting teachers, find a place to live (Culver City, Burbank, Park La Brea, North Hollywood, etc.) where a 2-bedroom with a roommate costs $2,200, line up your waiter gig (doing Uber or Lyft is better), and get your headshot to each and every one of the agents/agencies.
You can get a list of licensed talent agents by simply walking into SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild merged with Association of Film Television & Radio Artists) office and simply ask for one, if you phone (323-954-1600) get ready for voice mail and attitude.
ADDRESS: SAG-AFTRA, 5757 Wilshire Blvd, 7/F, Los Angeles, CA 90036
Now, once you have the list of talent agents, take your headshot (I assume you’ve printed 100 at a minimum), tape on the back your Name, Phone # & Address (you’ll get a new headshot, once you get a talent agent, for they want to create you and this one will have your name & number as a permanent part of the photo) then get in your car (yes, you must have a car in LA especially if being an Uber driver) and just drive from one agency to the other and drop off your headshot….
While at it, if you have a list of Casting Directors, drop your headshot off at their offices also.

Mr. Simens, I love the way you format your articles with helpful information. Not pushing any of your products, just giving information and knowledge that some who may be wanting to take up a career in acting/directing and writing can use. No BS – Just the facts – I like that. You are to be commended, but I’m sure you are exceptional in most people’s eyes!
My name is Robert Nana Abbey. i’m 34 years of age. 6ft” 4 inches tall and i am from Ghana (West Africa). I am introducing my self because i think the blend of the United States of America and West African culture coming together will be a great way of making Hit Movies. kindly contact me on email@example.com

Hello sir, am Prajesh, from India, a student and also a writer, of a novel, ‘?treasure without Map’, an war fictional novel, a perfect click of war, especially of Syria, effected by terrorism. I have written this as perfection for being turned into a movie, this presents the longevity of war damages even after twenty years, and also worshiping of love. I got a sample for you, first chapter of this novel,
. .. and when I opened my eyes, she closed. ..
. .. that’s all.”
He was about to weep, silently, I got myself unable to stuck my drops, I replied, “you sure?” “oh yeah! am sure!” his words defined lots of answers, they had, and also they asking for more. he tried his best, to sketch a mask of happiness, or he was but not as he should. I laughed, but that didn’t carried charms, “than why you here?”
“cause . … am happy, or. .. very happy.”
“you are happy?” “yeah. .. am…” he had that great choice, that is what made me mad, in his love. ‘He says that he needs you, but he won’t accept you.’ “I think we should go, mean, you should leave now, I have some work.” His words had a amazing creation of hesitation. He was saying like he wanted that but his sounds were hesitating to make, which proved that he wanted that badly, “what the kind of work you have in this 11/15 feet room?” “I have. .. not here, but somewhere else.” “can I…” but he crossed, “No, please. ..” “okay, as you wish” He was eager to this, he again said, “I wanna say you something, please Don’t tell anything to anyone, I don’t want this, please…” I realised what he wanted to convey, “and one thing more, please don’t come to meet me, ever!” I just nodded my shoulder and came out of his room, found he followed me. I thought that was manner but nope, he had somewhere else. I tried to convince my mind, what I should say him, “Crazy? Stupid? Scaring? Amazing or Foolish?” Heart was fixed, “a good guy, or may be I should say a good boy.”
I got to the Surgeon’s room, he started first, “so how your patient Doctor?” “he wasn’t my patient.” “ oh yeah? But you know what, before your words your pale face made me aware. But if I say truly Doctor, you are doubling my words. I said you that. .. cheers?” “no, thanks. Where he gone?” his hand indicated to fields, “what is there?” “the first is I should aware you that no one is permitted to go there, and there is only grass, and a two seat bench.” “is this hospital owned? Cause it should not. ..” “no, this belonged to him.” “ I wanna go there,” “No, we can’t, and what you’ll do there? Nothing but grass, perfect place to getting bored.” “ who made this rule?” “the man, who belonged. ..” “I’m going there, I assure you that you’ll not loose your job otherwise you try to stop me.” I left his room and towards the field, “ok. But take this advice, don’t disturb him till then he jerked his hand.” I nodded and as he said, waited for that and heard that thing again, “✋for you, ✋from you, of us?.” Then he stood up, he was aware of me, and I said, “I need to say something,” “I told you something, please…” “I’ll, but after sometime” I replied him. I again asked, “You were alone! Then whom you were talking with?” “I am not alone, she is with me.” “Where is she?” he replied, “She is with me. And She is happy.” “It’s just your imagination Sid, you made your own world, in her love! You are really a mentally disorder guy.”
“Nope. Our home is better than thine selfish world. I’m not mad, am in love, and I want to protect my love, our love.” “you are Alone. She is nowhere. ..” I replied, and being frustrated he replied, “It’s been a long day, you should leave! Put mine as a story you need to forget, or maybe make you pleasure. Don’t try to meet me, ever- never. ..” (all sounds deep, tragic, passionate manner)
“20 years Sid? You gonna spoil here your life, as you did from last 22 years. There is nothing to make this.”
“ Nope! there is everything- she is everything, she was everything, she will remain everything.” “Who is she? You had seen her only once, have you remember, how she looked like? Have you a single photocopy of her?”
(smiling tragically) “ how she looked like? Have I single piece of paper belongs to her? Huh. ..? Mine whole is belonged from her! I see her in my every room of loneliness, I feel her in my every drop of pain! She is with me, from the last she being my friend, and will from the last of my breath.” “You are crazy Sid, you are crazy! As a friend I beg you…” Sid crossed me “ We ain’t. We were. A conversation of… how much? Just five or six hours doesn’t make us friends, you are just a Doctor. And overall a stranger.” That hurt me,
“As you wish. But can I ask you something? You can convey everyone? about her?” I said . ..
Whole remained silent
I started, “ Why didn’t you tell her?”
“ You can’t tell someone you love, or I didn’t get the chance. And suppose I told her, what happened? Nothing. .. that was a war, between Syria and USA, I couldn’t stop this, all was fate, and am a victim of this, she also. ..” he was about to weep . .. again silence
“So now you love this 11/15 feet Jail?” “Nah! I hate thine selfish world.”
“Oh! You know? If, for a while, if I believe that you are right, in your every point, every stupidity, every craziness. But even then I have a last question, Why this Prison? Why. You are a billionaire, you can do anything, then why?” I shouted
“ after her, I became mature, I realised the reality, I appeal to stop the venom of terrorism, “they are nothing but human like us.” But they never accept, they named me mad, all were selfish, looked for own favour, and once I lost my interest, and diverted, by lust.
full of lust. This was taking me, from her! I realised that I made my love corrupt, cause I became corrupted through my lust, and then one day she came in my dream, and I realised that she was weeping, it wasn’t more than one year, even in one year I became lusty, I swear to being to her, and I am. I again appealed to “UNO” but that was against some economic favour and in Court once I behaved rudely, That was their conspiracy , and made me in this jail, and I realised all of this. This was clear to me that I can’t change thine world, you won’t, cause this world don’t want to change. And thine world would make my love corrupted, I wouldn’t survive there, I did my best.” His words were passionate but I had to say him,
“wake up Sid, you are in your imagination, you had make a world in you, of her and yours. But that’s not all, there have another shine, another day, another light. You are even in dark. .. wake up. ..” he asked for my notebook, and a pen, I gave him, he wrote something and put that in the notebook and put my notebook in bag. I haven’t yet open this. and he replied,
“Minutes, Hours, Days, Months, Years or ages, whatever you can say, all are just fools of times, love is not. Love doesn’t ruin life, Lust does. ..
I had to make choice,-
Serve thy lust? Or, or love my Her?
I chose mine.” . ..
If you got something different in it, exactly deals with you business, then please contact me. ..
