Q: What’s the difference between an agent and a manager?
A: Here’s the basic breakdown:
Helps to cultivate a career. Does not just book a job.
Generally has fewer clients than an agent.
Gives more individual attention.
While working with a manager, you can freelance with several agents, thereby having access to more auditions.
Managers generally take a 15% commission off the top.
Agents are state licensed employment agencies.
By law, agents cannot take more than a 10% commission. If you only have an agent, you only pay this one commission.
Can have a small or large number of clients.
