Welcome
To give you the best chance of being successful in this highly competitive industry, we
are going to outline some very important information and supply you with the details you
need to know to get started with Crawford Talent Management.
 It is your responsibility
to read this information thoroughly and to clarify all questions.
 Because we approach
the industry in a much financial friendlier manner, that does not require you to relocate,
it is essential you understand our process and our working relationship.  
READ
EVERYTHING:  If we realize you have not, we will immediately withdraw the offer for
representation
.  

The decision of our management group has already been made and that decision is to
offer you representation.  If you have additional questions, e-mail those questions to
communications@crawfordtalentmanagement.com

Although we are accepting the responsibility of managing your career we cannot do it
alone!  You must help and follow our directions to maximize your chances of being
successful.  You must have patience and realize success comes at different times for
different people and no two people are exactly alike.  By signing you as a talent, we
believe you have the ability to compete for jobs, and secure work.  Many talents fail
because they think this is going to be easy, it’s not.  Just like everything else in life, you
have got to work hard to be successful.

Our Process
You might have been told that you need to relocate, but we have proven that you
don’t
.    We would rather send your pictures out for consideration, have your image
available on our talent website, and have you tape and send in auditions directly to the
casting directors for projects and to allow them to become familiar with your abilities.     

We utilize the most efficient electronic systems available in the talent industry.  Actors
are exposed to a large group of national auditions, mainly television-television
commercials- pilot-film.  This delivers auditions that match your profile immediately.  
Models are also exposed to the print auditions that are done via
eServices, also
pulled from our website.

Again, we are experts at providing national level auditions to our talent instantly.  Every
audition means an opportunity to expose your skills.  You must follow our direction
completely.  If you should ever have any questions regarding the submittal process, you
need to communicate to your management team at
Crawford Talent Management.

Important Deadline
Please be aware that if you are planning to move forward to join our group, we need to
have your request to be sent a contract within the new 10 days, as we are experiencing
a very busy season for new actors and models.

t does conduct business much different than many other
managers.  We encourage our talent to grow and develop in their local markets.  We
are proud to provide great opportunity to the talent we do represent.  When the
opportunity arrives, we will do everything possible to help secure work.  Not one of our

your part.  Any important key to remember is that we will help secure an agent,
work
