~ Christina Leonardi At Talent America, I had the incredible opportunity to do what I love in front of people who share the same passion as me, while also being taken seriously as an artist who can work in the business. I expected to be seen by a panel of judges and hoped that one would be interested in working with me, however I ended up speaking with six different agents/managers/freelance companies/etc. Because of Talent America, I was able to land a job walking in Brooklyn Fashion week after talking with Drew Felton, a modeling judge. I continue to keep in touch with the people who were interested in working with me as well as with Karen Wagner and Rob Iovanna, the people who got me to TA. Both of them guided me through the process, helping me select all of my acting and modeling material, as well as stand by my side throughout the whole thing. I would not have had these incredible opportunities without them and can't express enough how talented they are at what they do. I would recommend TA for anyone who is passionate about the arts and is looking to work in the business. It is a phenomenal opportunity.
~Nicole Proto Talent America was an absolutely incredible experience. Between the preliminary, preparations for New York, and actually being there was a trip away from reality. This competition not only made dreams come true but it was also a learning experience. Some of us were able to communicate and maybe even sign with the top agencies in the industry. Overall, my experience at Talent America was an unforgettable one and I can’t wait to go back
~ Allison Dobkins I competed at the 2015 Talent America show in NYC and had a great time! Tina And Garrett really can connect you to the people who can make all the difference in your career. I am now signed with two NYC Talent Agencies and interviewing with 2 others. I recently was cast as an extra in Katie Holmes' new movie "All We Had." Talent America truly is a venue which can elevate your life and career and is a great opportunity to learn and grow in anything you want to do. Great friendly staff and many talented competitors made it a weekend to remember! Thanks for all you have done, and continue to do, for myself and other talented people.
