THE SUBMISSION PROCESS
We represent talent of all ages, looks, abilities and levels of experience because we understand that every day is different, and every job is unique. To be considered for representation, please complete our online submission form.
We review submissions on a daily basis and reply via email regardless of our decision. If we are interested in pursuing representation, talent over the age of four will be invited to interview at Wehmann. Parents of babies and toddlers under four will be contacted via email to complete the registration process.
We view representation as a mutual working relationship. We require current photos, measurements, and marketing materials in order to promote individuals for casting and booking opportunities.
Once representation has been established, we will send a welcome packet to recap tips and tools discussed in the interview, including agency and industry expectations.
We highly recommend all talent have an online profile. We use our mobile-friendly website to promote talent and market to clients on a daily basis. For talent new to Wehmann or new to the business, our website features a New Faces section. This makes it easy for us to highlight you when making introductions to photographers and casting directors.
Once representation has been established, we will discuss the process of setting up your online profile. You will be able to update photos, resumés and demo reels whenever you have new materials that Wehmann agents feel will help you stand out in our market.
A resumé is a key component to showing clients who you are and what you have accomplished in your modeling/acting career. All resumés should be submitted as an Adobe PDF file. Please make sure you remove all personal contact information and replace it with Wehmann’s contact information.
