It's Not Real Media

This cartoon perfectly illustrates why social media will never replace mainstream media. When you don't have professional journalists checking the sources, you have no idea what you're really getting.

How To Snag An Agent

How can I snag a top talent agent? It's a question we hear all the time because most artists quickly discover they can't really get too far in the industry without one. Well - first thing is you have to be seen. You have to get the right people in the audience.

Publicists and top agents tend to work hand in hand when it comes to scouting new talent. Some of the places we look are film festivals, plays, speaking events, music performances, etc. So, how do you get agents and publicists in your area to come see you? The answer is surprisingly simple, yet so many don't do it. Here's the secret - INVITE THEM. Send them a couple of VIP tickets with a nice hand written note. You will be amazed how often this totally simple strategy works!

It's About The Schmooze

“So much of Hollywood is about that in-person dynamic. You know, it’s all about the schmooze.”

From San Diego and Palm Springs to the Valley in Los Angeles - the industry is spreading out. High profile meet-ups for coffee, drinks or a meal are rapidly returning to full strength with a much broader field of play. This is one reason why it is so important to have a publicist based in Southern California. Check out this article on the return of the industry's "Power" meet-up's with a few new surprises (link below).

Sad News Today

R. J. Garis - Just head the sad news that actress Tawny Kitaen has passed. Years ago, I spent some time with her doing the PA tour for the movie Bachelor Party with Tom Hanks. Tawny played Hank's bride-to-be in the film. I remember she took me to her family home and made peanut butter sandwiches for us. We just talked about life and such, and she was very cool. A beautiful soul inside and out. A link to today's ET article on her is below. Rest in Peace.
