 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Q: What is the difference between a talent agent and a talent manager?


A: Although the terms have become synonymous and are often used interchangeably, an agent is a licensed, union-franchised representative who submits talent for work and negotiates contracts on their behalf. A manager advances artists' careers and guides or advises talent on day-to-day affairs such as auditions, contract negotiations, networking, agent acquisition and other business decisions.

Q: How do I know if I need an agent or manager?

A: Individuals who work frequently at the level and in the discipline they desire, likely do not need a talent agent or manager. Individuals who would like to work more frequently, be seen for larger projects, expand their network or have additional career support, may benefit from an agent or manager.

Q: Will Stalwart Talent Management work beside my agent?

A: Yes. For represented talent who would like to add a business manager to their team, Stalwart works beside franchised agents. We will even prepare current clients for representation. Although, once clients have secured the services of an agent, Stalwart typically advises clients lean on their representation and forego management services.
