FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Here are some commonly asked questions about Logan Talent
Must I be thin or tall ?
Absolutely not. This is not a modelling agency. We appreciate diverse looks as we focus on placing characters on adverts and as extras.
If you watch adverts or TV in general,you will not just see skinny people!
How much is the joining fee?
See info on sign up sessions
What kind of auditions will I go to?
Artists whose profile fits the description of the casting will be sent to the auditions. Casting briefs are very specific,
For example If they are looking for a 200 year old caucasian chubby guy (Hopefully they don't),a 21 year old black girl will not be taken to such auditions.
And so on,you get the picture...
What must I dress for sign ups?
Obviously you have to look good as you will be taking photos that will represent you in your career! What looks good is subjective.
There is no specific dress code for sign up.It is advisable to keep it simple and be true to yourself! Remember less is more!

Yes! You can still join. As mentioned earlier,the advertisement industry is built on diverse characters! There is a place for everyone.
