Power play between Agent & Talent? Meet Agent Roger King

Is there a power play between agent and talent? Is it still the Hollywood stereotype? Roger King didn’t want to be a DJ…  but he had a degree in Radio/TV broadcasting.  So he honed his sales skills, was a good businessman as his own VO talent, got repped by PN Agency and then bought it when he had the chance. He knows both sides!    Roger offers nuggets of advice about talent communicating with agents, Professionally being selective vs being “clever”… How industry changes and lots more talent entering – or saturating - the market had changed his job.  Roger King is the President of PN Agency, which provides voice-over talent to the radio, television, film, multi-media and animation industries and was founded in 1991, and now represents over 100 voice over talents & translators in more than 15 different languages. He blogs about the Canadian voiceover industry from the perspective of a talent agent at www.voiceovercanada.ca.  PN Agency aka Performance Network Agency is the oldest non-union voice talent agency in Canada, with offices in Toronto and Montreal, representing local talent in those cities. VO artist LoveThatRebecca aka Rebecca Haugh is your host on Love That VoiceOver....
