PREVIEW: Inside The Agency - With 'WGM Talent' Agent Guy Howe!Oct 12, 2018
One of my main goals with Act On This, is to give you access to as many reputable, legitimate, industry professionals as possible - and agent Guy Howe, from WGM Talent, has been on my list of guests for many years now.
Guy established the dual-based (Manchester/ London) acting agency WGM Talent in 2014, and has since grown it into one of the most innovative agencies in the industry.
I dropped by MediaCityUK, where Guy's Manchester office is based, for a coffee-fueled chat on all things agenting.
If you're currently looking for an agent, or you're looking for new representation, THIS is a podcast, you DON'T want to miss!
During our chat, Guy and I discussed:
- Guy's move from law school, to the acting industry.
- Why Guy set up WGM Talent, rather than joining an already established agency.
- How Guy mapped out a blueprint, for growing a successful agency.
- What Guy wants to see from actors, applying to him for representation.
- Why you DON'T need a glossy showreel to gain representation.
- Why you need to up your self-tape game NOW!
- How Guy cements relationships with the industry's biggest casting directors.
- Why personality is EQUALLY as important as acting talent.
- The ways in which actors can improve their mental health.
- The EXACT steps Guy would take to get representation if he were an actor.
- Guy's greatest life lessons.
And MUCH MUCH more!
