This industry is ever-changing, there are new deals, new news and agency updates all the time. This week weíre bringing you the latest news on changes that have occurred in the past little while and of course some industry buzz.
One of New York's and Paris' top modeling agencies, Marilyn Model Management represents some of the best known models and latest fresh faces. But even an agency as established as they are needs to constantly evolve to stay on top. Thatís why Marilyn has launched a new magazine that gives readers a look into some of the big-name references in their NY and Paris offices.
A kind of industry buzz on its own, the magazine will keep readers in tune and on top of everything the agency has to offer. Itís a limited edition, so consider yourself lucky if youíre able to get your hands on a copy.
An American dynasty of sorts, the Miss America Pageant, is far from its days of glory. After ABC said it would no longer televise the pageant over a year ago, due to low ratings, the Miss America Organization lost $1.7 million and announced a few months later the plan to move the pageant out of Atlantic City in search of a less expensive venue.
Now, if it werenít more obvious that they were in need of help, the Miss America Organization is asking former winners to donate money for the organizationís scholarship program, given to winners. Even though the Country Music Television has picked up the show, the organization still has a long way to go.
New Deal for Actors:
Actors can take comfort in the fact that the Actors' Equity Association and the League of Off-Broadway Theatres and Producers have approved a new deal that will increase salaries and health insurance contributions for Off-Broadway productions. The deal covers Manhattan theatres with fewer than 500 seats, which means the deal is particularly relevant to actors starting out in the industry because thatís where most begin.
Salaries will increase by 6.5 - 8.2 per cent, and health contributions will increase by 37 -42 per cent. The deal runs through October 2009, and also includes understudies which will see a raise of about $21 to $30 per week. The deal additionally gives actors more time off in their rehearsal schedule because during the last seven days preceding the first paid public performance, there is a required day off or a daylight day of rest.
New Faces Recent Successes: Lexy
"Within 24 hours of my portfolio being up on NewFaces.com I got contacted by a great agent at the Elmer Olsen agency in Canada. He arranged for me to go into Storm Models in London where I live. I am now signed with them and have gone straight to the main board. NewFaces.com is the best place to start as new talent - I'm so pleased I joined!"
