DYLAN - New Faces® CHILD SUPERSTAR
"Just wanted to let you know Dylan just booked a starring role in a feature film. The movie is called Crab Orchard and is a family drama starring Ed Asner and Judge Reinhold (and Dylan!) Dylan made this contact through New Faces. Another recent contact is a company from the Philippines who is going to promote Dylan as their main pre-teen model for the European market. He will be doing work for GAP, GUESS, Colors, Nike and many others."

Dylan Michael Patton has been on New Faces™ since the year 2000. His career did a complete turnaround because of New Faces™, and his mother wrote to tell us about it. Here's what she said:
"New Faces was one of the first web based model portfolio services on the Internet. As a professional photographer and the mother of an actor I was extremely skeptical but also very curious. I had clients who were also looking for more work beyond what their local agents could provide as well as exposure outside their geographical markets."
So she signed Dylan up. "I really did it as more of an experiment. I never actually expected anything out of it." But what happened was another story entirely!
Dylan has climbed the ladder of success over the 4 years he has been on New Faces. He booked his first feature film at the age of 10 through a New Faces contact. He now has big name agency representation in Los Angeles as well as a manager who they first met through New Faces over 3 years ago.
"We just signed with him last summer. He is now a wonderful friend as well as our manager and he has really helped to advance Dylan's career. We are so fortunate to have met him through New Faces."
"Thanks to New Faces, Dylan now has many regional and several national commercials under his belt and has modeled for companies such as Target, Lands End, GUESS, Nike, Parisian, Quick Silver, O'Niell, JC Penney and many others. He wrapped on his second feature film last December and landed a guest starring role on Disney's That's so Raven."
"In February Dylan shot a pilot for a new Disney show and is currently waiting to hear if it's been picked up. He went to 'network' on two other pilots this season and is looking forward to his next trip to L.A. Dylan is currently spending about six months a year in Los Angeles and is home schooled due to his busy work schedule. Thanks New Faces!!!!"
