As ideamensch interviewed Anthony Toma, founder of Nine9 Unagency, he clearly is revolutionizing the way actors and models discover opportunities. By applying his experience as a franchise owner in talent services, Toma has established a solid business that incorporates what he learned as a franchisee, while changing the aspects that he did not like. In addition, Toma says that forward thinking and listening are his keys to success.
Nine9 gives the 99 percent of aspiring models and actors’ support that are unrepresented opportunities and the tools that they will need to break into the entertainment business. Founded in 2003, the company has offices in Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Detroit, Los Angeles and New York, which cover all the major markets. Recently, the talent service opened offices in New Jersey and Ohio.
As a leader in casting, Nine9 provides clients with a searchable database of auditions and casting calls ranging from the Truss Professional Fashion Hair Show looking for hair models to working as an extra on the Fast & Furious 8. Nine9 clients have a page on the company’s website with their pictures and statistics for the entertainment industry professionals to check when they are seeking a specific look and what Nine9 knows.
Nine9 provides opportunities, however, Toma says “At Nine9, we believe a client and a talent’s relationship is built on teamwork – both sides must be willing to invest in the time and hard work that is necessary for success, while treating each other with a professional approach” and more information click here.
